  2. HENCHMEN AND MINIONS ARE NOT THE SAME THING!!!
    Minions are the disposable mooks. Henchmen are the enforcers who actually have a hope of standing up to the good guys.

  4. First guy in a Polo shirt to come into the store and he seems to be rooting for the bad guys? Sounds like the son of a 1 percenter. :P

  6. They all come from a henchmen inbreeding facility.

  7. I believe the Law of Conservation of Ninjutsu explains this quite well.

  8. It IS true. I mean if they really want to win the Bad Guys need to stop sending their mooks off to get their asses kicked one at a time by The Hero.

    All they really need to do is register them to vote.

    It worked for Obama and ACORN.

    1. REALLY, Anon?
      You're going to try interjecting politics here, and don't even sign your name? Coward.

    2. Butthurt much?

      Just pointing out the difference between reality and comic books. What works in the real world makes for very boring comic books.

    3. You're dragging your halfwit phony based-on-a-deceitfully-edited-video political outrage everywhere you go...and HE's butthurt? Let me guess: he's also the one who's racist.

      Sorry, nutjob: too many Republicans have already let it slip that the only reason they're pushing voter ID is because they want to supress legitimate votes. Proven cases of voter fraud are statistically insignificant, and the best known case remains that of one Ann Coulter. Kick your feet and scream otherwise until your face turns blue, but ACTUAL reality abides.

    4. You guys are priceless.

      Not a clue what video you're talking about, but damn you have some kneejerk defensive issues about it. And a bad case of projection. For the record, I don't like either party. I could also make remarks about stacked courts and blocked recounts, but this OVC is about millions of henchmen.

    6. *cites ACORN; pretends to not know about ACORN video*
      *injects political rant; complains that we're now off-topic*
      *"It's everyone else who's got issues!!"*

      Well, at least you admit your cluelessness.

      the point of objecting to references to the ACORN scandal is that the entire "scandal" was a hoax that broke pretty much every principle of journalistic ethics. the florida college where that guy's partner was a journalism student oughta be embarrassed that they apparently only succeeded at teaching her how to be a sleazy political propagandist rather than a news reporter. using the ACORN scandal as an example of reality is no more credible than using an urban legend about a poodle in a microwave.

      owait. he's disparaging ACORN (basically "any/every low income person registered in a voter drive = guaranteed vote for democrats"?) without knowing anything about the viral video hoax that put them out of business? um, nevermind then. dude is beyond help & prolly a good candidate for one of OVC's "dopes."

    9. What a bunch of defensive knee jerks.

      There are many many many instances of voter registration fraud perpetrated by ACORN. This isn't from some documentary or some hoax. It's a matter of public record. Google it.

      look, if you actually believe the president of the united states of america was elected by fake voters, you've got issues. the first and foremost issue being insufficient knowledge of how voter registration works. google that.

  9. Maybe they need One Million and one.

  10. Good minions are hard to find?

  11. One hero vs one million henchmen is exactly a million to one odds. As Terry Pratchett has explained, there is an element called Narrativium that ensures million-to-one shots will pay off nine times out of ten.

    1. One should a add that it only works if it's exactly a million to one.

  12. My favorite alternative is this: a solitary villain who can fight several superheroes to a standstill (say, Prometheus or Doomsday) becomes only marginally effective in a team of villains taking on a similar hero group.
