Heroclix Custom: The Condiment King

Yes.  The Condiment King.  This is an actual DC Character.  Really.

When I saw that the new World’s Finest Heroclix set actually has a Condiment King clix, I decided to post the custom I made years ago.

To call The Condiment King a D-list Batman villain would be kind.  Whereas most of Batman’s villains are fixated on jokes, riddles, cats, or even waterless fowl, this guy fixated on condiments.  Really.

One of my favorite comics is Birds of Prey #37.    In it, Robin, Blue Beetle, and Black Canary are rounding up The Condiment King, the last of villains who had been infected by the Joker Toxin (see The Joker: The Last Laugh storyline). Without giving away the story, the issue features some great character interactions as well as an interesting take on Batman’s rogues.  And most of all, it’s just plain fun.  Thanks to writer Chuck Dixon!

The Condiment King was made from a Pyro clix with the gun and belt pouches from a HDC Trooper.
