THE CHAMPIONS #14-15 (1977): First Swarm

If ever there was a villain made for an animated kids’ cartoon, it’s this one: Swarm.  He’s made of bees.  I mean, beestings hurt and all, but unless he’s alergic to them, I’m pretty sure Hercules has fought worse.  Plus, bees can’t even get close to fire so Ghost Rider should be cool.  Ditto Iceman–can they sting through frozen water?  Really it’s just Black Widow who should be vulnerable to this villain.

Byrne draws him well, though.

Oh, and Iceman gets a new costume so he’s not just freezing his body over and running around in underwear…
