So, what’s another goofy supervillain whose gimmick makes no sense, and is as known for his weird outfit as anything else?
Why, The Ringmaster, of course! The Ringmaster is more “useful” than Arcade in the following ways.
- The circus can go places, whereas superheroes have to enter Murderworld.
- The Ringmaster has a slight power of his own, the hypnotizing hat.
- The Ringmaster at least has basic henchmen.
This silver age villain was the subject of the first team-up between Spider Man and Daredevil, so I have good memories of him.
