A somewhat obscure, powerful 1970s enemy of the Justice League of America.

Otherdimensional alien feeding off fear.

Mmm, this image is very tall. I prolly should add some text here so it doesn’t feel weirdly empty, especially for people not familiar with the site. So how are y’all doing. I’m doing good. I have some delicious flan left to eat, and I love flan.

So yeah, anyway, Nekron. No, not the demon lord in Underworld Unleashed (or Underwear unwashed, according to one of our contributors who hate that crossover). The 1970s, space one.

The space misandrist enemy of Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, by golly !

Who was a goofy, not-highbrow parody of Filipina national super-heroine Darna.

This entry previously had to be altered due to US online advertising standards. So we restored it, and did its hair while we were at it.
