Composite SuperGeek!!

Geek time!

I saw that DC has a listing for a new Superman/Batman Annual with a story by Len Wein and Chris Batista and a cover by Bernie Wrightson. The story has to do with a re-introduction of the old villain, The Composite Superman. Holy old school, Batman!

Truly, the Composite Superman is a creature that is sadly neglected because of its appearance. Despite having the quasi-Amazo-like abilities of the Legion of Super-Heroes, he's always been laughed off because of his ridiculous appearance.

I've always had a soft spot for this character. Powerful, yet ridiculous-looking. A foe worthy of the Justice League or the Avengers if it weren't for the fact that he looked like he was designed by a delighted 6 year old.

Maybe he'll get respect after someone makes song about him.
