9 of the Ugliest Comic Characters


They say that beauty is only skin deep, but ugly is bone dry. This couldn’t ring more true in the super hero and villain community which features deformities only a fan could love. We’re listing off some notoriously hideous super heroes and villains in comicdome, but decided to exclude “mutants” from the bunch. That alone could take up an entire series of articles. Without further ado, here are our picks.

The Thing

Ben Grimm has had it rough over the years. Not only did he have to deal with his best friend marrying one of his former crushes, but got the short end of the stick from a cosmic accident. Reed Richards’s recklessness left the ever lovin’ blue-eyed Thing with the appearance of some of the worst dumps we’ve taken.


With the complexion of an extra crispy chunk of fried chicken, Al Simmons understandably remains masked most of the time. Going to hell will do that to you.


One parts Spawn, equally mixed with Freddy Krueger, the Merc with a Mouth thankfully doesn’t show his face around much. Like Felicia Hardy, we love the mask, not the face underneath.

Toxic Avenger

It figures that a splash of chemicals would render someone misshapen rather than a super model as many comics depict.


Both his psychiatrist and police officers describe Walter Kovacs as physically ugly, but we can hardly make that angreement. What we do concur with is that he has the cleaning habits of some of the filthiest hobos out there.

Freak (Spider-Man)

Holy hell! What the heck is that thing? He’s supposed to be an animal hybrid, but of what? No surprise that he’s a drug-addict given. Meth is one helluva drug.


We’ve forgotten what the anocronym in his name even stands for anymore. What we do know is that this villain look like Humpty Dumpty had a great fall down the ugly tree.

Mole Man

Go figure that something this funny looking would feel more at home under ground. This thing literally looks like it has the personal hygiene of a sewer rat and casually dines on its boogers on a frequent basis.


A splash of corrosive chemicals left one side of Harvey Dent’s face horribly disfigured. Left with a split personality as hideous as his demeanor, he begun a crusade against order and justice and constantly locked horns with the Dark Knight. All we have to say is that if we were his wife, we’d force him to wear half a bag over his face in the sack.
