|Not to be confused with "Superboy Gets a Hummer!" which is a specialty video you can find online.|
Of course, not every unpowered villain makes a legacy – “Squishable” alone does not a legend make.
Superboy isn’t much different, and one of his first super-foes is a “mischievous mountebank of menace” (comic book writers used to get paid by the alliteration) known as “The Mummer,” a frustrated entertainer who turns crooked, like Wesley Snipes only with more knee-socks and fewer tax problems.
|You can wait forever, son, he died in there.|
The Mummer’s tremendous pride encourages him to challenge Superboy to a contest of wits as a means to truly launch his criminal career, aided by a Superboy robot of his own invention – which is also his downfall, as Superboy reprograms it to just fuck the poor idiot up. The Mummer quits thereafter, his legacy preserved only in an annual parade held in Philadelphia every New Years.
