I was watching the x-men cartoon recently and I realized that gladiator has many of super-mans powers such as super strength, "heat vision", the ability to blow really hard, and flight. I always thought superman was way to powerful, his powers make much more sense for the leader of Marvel's imperial guard, then just some alien who gains powers due to earth's atmosphere somehow gradually giving him one power at a time.
Is Gladiator a parody of Superman?
"Nightcrawler (Marvel comics) was supposed to join the Legion of Super-Heroes (DC comics)??"Yep the person who created his Nightcrawler(don't know his name) was working on Legion of Superheroes when he started making the character. But then he moved over to the X-Men before he introduce him in Legion and he did it for X-Men instead.
"Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner) is a fictional comic book superhero, and a member of the X-Men, appearing in books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Len Wein and artist Dave Cockrum, he first appeared in Giant-Size X-Men #1 (May 1975). Dave Cockrum designed Nightcrawler to be used in DC Comics' Legion of Super-Heroes series. Cockrum was working on the series just before he went to Marvel, and Nightcrawler's costume design (and overall unusual look) fit well into the Legion's design scheme."
