The Fat Little Nothing [Mystery Men!]

Cosmic heroes don't come any more blase' than Herbie Popnecker. Dismissed as a "fat little nothing" by his father, Pincus, Herbie's lifelong addiction to seemingly mystic lollipops has made him easily one of the most powerful entities in the universe. Galactus - Ha! Superman - Don't make him laugh! (Well, he wouldn't laugh, of course, but don't even try). Herbie always seems to sleeping, and even when awake he's half asleep. That probably makes him a powerful dreamer, in the vein of Randolph Carter, who either inhabits his own world of dreams or is able to impose his fancies on the world around him.

  1. Just popped it to say howdy and ask, where's the grab bag posts? They've gone missing ...

  2. Yeah - I guess my bag has been empty lately. I usually throw those out when I've accumulated some good random pictures, but I haven't seen any lately.

  3. So which power corresponds to the hard-to-find cinnamon ones?

  4. I'll leave it to the readers to suggest special powers for different flavors.
