3d man

3-D Man

Very few of these "Worst Comics Characters" lists are comprised of figures from the last decade or so, and there's a reason for that. Back when comics were mainly sold issue to issue from magazine racks, single-issue adventures were the focus and you had to come up with a steady stream of new faces (mostly bad guys) to keep drawing attention, lest potential customers decide "Nah, I've already got plenty of these with Electro!" and moving on. So you can almost imagine how 3D Man came to be: "Um... 3D! That's a thing again, right? With the glasses? Okay! So maybe he's, like a guy... times 3?"

And that's pretty-much it: Charles Chandler is a test pilot who's been zapped into a 2-dimensional being after an encounter with The Skrulls, but he can be willed into fully-dimensional existence when his brother Hal dons a pair of special glasses and concentrates really hard. As 3D Man, Chandler is exactly three times faster, three times stronger, three times smarter and so on than the average human specimen. Problematically, that still leaves him many more times weaker than even most second-tier Marvel crimefighters; to say nothing of a hundred times less interesting than even the other losers on this list.
