#21. The Corpse

November 21, 2009


The Standard isn’t the only superhero in Sky City.  There’s also The Corpse.  Of course, not everyone would agree that The Corpse is a superhero.  Many, particular amongst Sky City’s police department, would call him a dangerous vigilante, a wanted criminal, even a serial killer.  But it cannot be denied that the recent decline of supervillains in the city has something to do with The Corpse.  After all, he’s been killing them all.

Though The Corpse is a master martial artist, with access to a wide range of weaponry, he has no superpowers.  All the same, he is more feared by the criminal underworld than even The Standard, because while The Standard has a strict no-kill rule, The Corpse goes out of his way to execute lawbreakers.

Nothing is known about his identity or his background.  It is speculated that perhaps his whole family was murdered by gangsters when he was a child, and he has dedicated his life to avenging their death.  Or perhaps it’s simply the fact that he’s only 5’7” tall and has a tiny cock that has left him perennially pissed off at the world.

    Albeit poorly-drawn. But I’m glad you liked the concept at least. Thanks! 🙂
