You Know Who's Stupid? Crusher Creel Is Stupid!

We spent some time yesterday talking about stupid alien invaders and stupid super-villains.

But really, you can't talk about stupid without bringing up the undisputed King Of Stupid, The Absorbing Man.

Seriously, with his power set, Crusher Creel should be ruling the world right now. But, nope, his Achilles heel is his brain.

Take, for example, the time he's fight Thor in downtown New York City. And Creel is winning, until Thor decides to "flee":

Wait for it...

Oh, Carl...

From Thor #236 (1975)

This is actually one of my favorites... completely improbable, and yet ridiculously brilliant.

Ever since that waster fight 'absorb the wrong thing by accident' has become the go to device to beat Creel.

Thor's expression in that last panel is priceless. "Verily, thou art a dumbass, Creel."

I guess he's not so hot on sensing just what he's absorbing? Must be torture walking down the street. "Gum, gum, candy wrapper, gum... *sniff sniff* Aw...!"
