H is for Hammerhead
ABCs of Mediocre Marvel Villainy
Okay, so it's pretty hard to be a street level villain in a super hero world and not be a little lame to begin with. Sure, there are exceptions, but, you know, not really. Think about it.
You know, deep down, you don't really take Kingpin seriously, and he's done some really messed up stuff. And he messes up guys WITH powers.
Okay, Hammerhead is like a poor man's Kingpin. Except he's got a flat head with metal in it. That's right. He has a hammer head. And he's a poor man's Kingpin. He's not even, really, a very good super hero mafia leader.
He teamed up with Chameleon...when CHAMELEON was trying to be Mafia Kingpin. HE WAS PLAYING SECOND FIDDLE TO CHAMELEON.
In a desperate attempt to de-lame him, they've recently given him the Wolverine-Entire-Skeleton-Is-Metal treatment.
Sorry, Hammerhead. Still lame.
