5 Comic Book Characters That Need to Disappear from The Marvel Universe (With Reimagined Images)
Marvel Comics has a rich and diverse roster of superheroes, villains, and supporting characters. Some of them are iconic and beloved by fans, while others are obscure and forgotten. But there are also some characters that are so annoying, boring, or problematic that they should have never existed in the first place. Here are five comic book characters that should have disappeared from the Marvel Universe.
Sentry is a superhero with the power of a million exploding suns. He is also a schizophrenic who suffers from memory loss and has a dark alter ego called the Void. Sentry was inserted into the history of the Marvel Universe as if he had always been there. He was supposed to be a friend of the Avengers, but his unstable personality and his destructive powers made him more of a threat than an ally. Sentry is a character that tries to be too complex and too powerful, but ends up being too confusing and too boring.
2. Squirrel Girl
Squirrel Girl is a super heroine with the ability to communicate with squirrels and a tail that can be used as a weapon. She is also one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe, having defeated villains like Doctor Doom, Thanos, and Galactus with her squirrel army. Squirrel Girl is meant to be a comedic and quirky character, but her jokes are often lame and her victories are often ridiculous. Squirrel Girl is a character that tries to be too funny and too unbeatable, but ends up being too silly and too unbelievable.
Starfox is a superhero and an alien prince from the planet Titan. He is also the brother of Thanos, the mad titan who wiped out half of the universe with the Infinity Gauntlet. Starfox has the power to manipulate emotions, which he often uses to seduce women. Starfox is a character that is not only creepy, but also irrelevant and inconsistent. He has no connection to the main storylines of the Marvel Universe, and his power to make people happy or horny does not match his brother’s power to make people dead or dusted.
4. America Chavez
America Chavez is a super heroine and an interdimensional traveler. She is also one of the first openly lesbian characters in the Marvel Universe. America has the power to punch holes in reality, fly at super speed, and kick ass with her super strength. America is a character that is supposed to be diverse and empowering, but she is also bland and annoying. She has no personality beyond being angry and rebellious, she has no backstory beyond being from another dimension, and she has no motivation beyond being a hero for hero’s sake.
Gwenpool is a superheroine and a comic book fan. She is also a parody of Deadpool, the mercenary with a mouth who breaks the fourth wall. Gwenpool has no powers, but she has access to weapons, gadgets, and comic book knowledge. She also knows that she is in a comic book, and she uses that to her advantage. Gwenpool is a character that is supposed to be meta and fun, but she is also annoying and pointless. She has no reason to exist other than being a mashup of two popular characters, she has no role in the Marvel Universe other than being a joke, and she has no respect for the rules or the consequences of her actions.
