The Sportsmaster.... Crusher Crock was once a famed athlete that was obsessed with winning and then ended up crippling a opponent. But now he uses his athletism for CRIME!!!!
I know he's corny, but it is interesting to think of how a guy that's REAL athletic and a master of sports can be such a threat.
But I love the character, it's one of the reason I like DC more, is for thier corny characters and thier lack of any embarrassment for any of them. DC is proud of thier heritage.
They then killed off Crock and made a new one, Victor Gover, that actually had a power (PHOTOGRAPHIC REFLEXES) and a immense gambling addiciton. This version was the best, in my opinion, he still had the corny gimmick, but was a fleshed out character. He wan't just a guy with a sports gimmick, but a washed up supervillian who didn't fit in with the current ways of superheroes and villians. Gover also took on the entire JSA. (JSA CLASSIFIED #26 & 27)
And DC still continues to use him.
So, does anyone else like THE SPORTSMASTER?! *dramatic music*
'OHHH NO! It's the Sportsmaster!!!!'
'What does he do?'
'He...errrr... plays sports... good?'
