Well, actually Beta Max Man was forgotten because he was too short and lacked Porn Man.....

Anyway, some great ones here, but I think DC has got us beat...how have I never heard of this comic??;

All right, now this... this is the weird one. Ennis and McCrea introduced Section Eight in the pages of Hitman, one of the greatest DC Comics of all time, specifically as a team made up of the weirdest characters they could imagine. Here's the roster:

Six-Pack, whose main power is getting drunk and passing out in the gutter with hallucinations of defeating Darkseid

Bueno Excelente, who "fights crime with the power of perversion"

The Defenestrator, who looks like the Terminator and carries around a window -- just a window -- that he throws people through

Friendly Fire, who fires devastating energy bolts from his hands that only ever hit his allies

Jean de Baton-Baton, who is French

Flemgem, who has super-powered mucus

Shakes, who shakes

And maybe the greatest forgotten superhero ever,

Dogwelder, who welds dogs to people. Like, actual dogs. With a blowtorch. I have no idea how, but it is, shockingly, much less gruesome than it sounds, and it seems to bother his opponents a lot more than it bothers the dogs.

Well, that could be still useful: Canadian $1 can still be spent, last time I checked.

Legally, yes. But good luck trying to spend it - most people wouldn't recognize it these days. Pretty much all you could do is take it to the bank and exchange it, but banks can be suspicious of people exchanging large numbers of obsolete bills.

Yeah. When I was last in Vancouver, there were basically 3 reactions we got to spending old currency.

1. Old folks would just accept it.
2. Young folks would be all "I have to ask my manager." The manager would say "Yeah, sure. It's fine."
3. Asian folks would outright refuse to take it.

Then, since we were headed out to Alaska, we were trying to get rid of the Canadian currency we had. We saw a street performer and we stopped to watch him for a while. We put some of our old bills in his hat. He was excited and said "Hey! Old money! Alright!" Then, after we went back to the crowd, a big wind came up and blew his hat down and started blowing the bills all around the little park area. He stopped everything to go chase it, and I did too. Man, he really wanted that old money. :D

The ability to always open or get passed packs with only the worst, most unplayable rares and no bombs or removal in booster draft. ANY booster draft: Magic, Yu-Gi-Oh!, that one game nobody's heard of...every time, without fail.

The power to roll a d20 and get a result of 20 at a slightly higher-than-normal rate, but to roll natural 1s every other time.

And this is my real-life alter-ego: The Rerun, a guy with the power to remember a scene from a TV episode, only for that episode to be the next one he watches within a week.

The ability to get a huge piece of spinach stuck between your front teeth during every meal, even if that meal contains no spinach.

The power to always miss public transport by 10 seconds, even if you've been waiting at the stop for hours.

Still a lame power. Only good for on the spot vanishing. Unless you want to stumble your way round things.

Try doing a robbery and you can't see anything. You'd have to train your other senses despite not actually being dependent on it.

Sort of different, that was invisible when no one else is looking.
Merrymakers is invisible provided you cant see where your going.

Not sure which is better really.
The mystery men one was at least good for getting past CCTV sensors if I remember right. But on the other hand, even standing still and being invisible can be useful in some situations.
