Previous Post

    Most of the Night Shift was retconned into having frustrated Hollywood ambitions.

    uhm...Brothers Grimm....I can't remember, but special effects?

No. Realty. They discovered the costumes of the original Brothers in a theatre they owned. The original were literally a pair of lifelike mannequins.

    Did Danse Macabre want to be an actress?

Dansen Macabre was a stripper. She didn't appear to have any ambitions, except to serve Kali.

    I don't remember Gypsy Moth or Digger's ambitions at ALL.

Gypsy Moth/Skein seems to have had no ambitions except fame. When we first meet her, she was out for jealous vengeance on her actor boyfriend. Then later, she tried to start a hedonistic cult centered around herself.

Nowadays, she runs a strip joint.

    Did Wonder-Man's villian Splice have a Hollywood background, or just a clever movie name?

Hollywood. He was a struggling actor who gave up work for being a hitman.

Master Pandemonium was an actor and CEO of a movie company.

El Guapo of X-Force was an actor.

The Thing has acted and done the wrestling thing.

The Jester started out as an embittered actor reduced to being a punchline on children's TV.

The Circus of Crime are all entertainers-gone-bad.

The Blob and Mastermind both started out as circus performers.

Unus the Untouchable was originally a popular wrestler.

Destiny (Paul Destine), the villain who gave Namor his post-1950s amnesia, started out as carnival psychic.

Doctor Sax and Johnny Guitar, two one-off Dazzler foes later used in an Initiative Dark Reign story, started out as part of a band.

Ultra-obscure mutant villainess Bora was a failed ballet dancer due to her freakish height; her later partner Spark was a performance artist who turned on an unappreciative public.

On the other end of the spectrum, one-shot Spider-Woman foe Daddy Longlegs became a freak by stealing a variant of the Giant-Man serum because he was too *short* to be a professional dancer.

1950s Marvel Boy villain the Great Video used a stage act as criminal cover after gaining X-ray eyes; he'd started as a scientist.

Laughably awful one-shot Defenders villain Tappin' Tommy was...yeah, a tap dancer.
