Scenes From a Counter II

An actual conversation I had at work with Steve today:

"You know who the best villain in the history of comics is?"

"Who?"

"Swarm."

"Swarm?"

"Yeah." I held up a copy of Champions #14. "Swarm. He's a Nazi made of bees. I mean really, it doesn't get much better than that. Everybody hates nazis, and everybody's scared of bees. There's no way to top it. Can't be done. You'll never find anything scarier than that. "

[Pause]

"What if he was a ghost Nazi made of bees?"

Shit.

"Fair enough, Steve. You win."

A ghost nazi made of wasps? Now they scare me more than Bees.

No, a ghost Nazi monkey. Even better than that Weird War Tales cover!

Have to agree with oliver there... wasps are way scarier than bees. Wasps will sting you for no reason.

Or you could combine him with Per Degaton:

a TIME-TRAVELING Nazi made of bees!

Swarm was in Runaways recently (Vol. 2 #7, I think). I doubt I could come up with such a brilliantly wahoo concept for a villain if I had a month to do it.

I've looking for this comic book since a long time ago, nevertheless is so difficult to achieve it, because in almost all the laces I asked for it, they told me it was unavailable.

I remember the first time I read this comic I stayed completely fascinated with the sequence of the story and the innovative elements it included.
