U is for Unus

U is for Unus

ABCs of Mediocre Marvel Villainy

What's this insanity you speak of?

You've never heard of Unus, the Untouchable?


Unus is an old school X-Villain, so he's not ridiculous, with overcomplicated storylines and desperate attempts at making him tough and gritty.
He used to run with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, Factor Three (which included the Vanisher who's original costume alone should've put him on this list, but I didn't want so many x-villains). And you know, fought those darn X-Men.

But, he does wear a sweater.
A sweater.

Oh, what can Unus do? He has a force field. All the time. You can't touch him, you can't hurt him, he can't touch you, either.

Force fields, as you know, are shields of protection that keep things out, but it must be cold in there, thus explaining the sweater.

Okay, so how lame is Unus?

Here how lame: Once, his powers got a *little* out of control and his force field started to keep oxygen out. And he died.

  1. Wow, these are terrific. I would totally buy a little book of all these for my kids. They have to learn about Unus somewhere!

    I'm going to add you to my blogroll, if you don't mind!
