Redmond Blogger Returns With Superhero Sequel

Redmond’s Jon Morris

It’s no wonder that a Hollywood producer (whose films have grossed $487 million) recently phoned Redmond’s Jon Morris about a possible animated series inspired by his comic-book history The League of Regrettable Superheroes. It’s a hoot, as is his just-released new follow-up, The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains (Quirk Books, $24.95), which features the silliest bad guys the industry ever invented. “No idea was too insane,” says Morris. 

 

For instance, Superman creator Jerry Siegel also created Elasto, an FBI scientist whose experiment goes wrong and turns him evil. “But Elasto retains his conscience,” explains Morris, “so, while he’s beating people up, he pauses to tell them how guilty he feels.” Morris’ favorite bad guy? “Angar the Screamer. His screams produce acid-like hallucinations.” Hear about Angar and others at Jon Morris' blog, Gone & Forgotten.
