I love the Blob ever since his first appearance. He could have been made into an almost unstoppable force similar to Juggernaut. It looked that way in his first few appearances but he then turned into more of a comic relief. I think they could have kept his funny and entertaining personality and still made him into a near unstoppable threat. Besides that he is probably tied for my favorite comic-book character. What do you think of him?

@Blob: Depends on who is writing him, he was quite unstoppable when he was altered by Onslaught
 
I loved him when he was part of Mystiques Brotherhood, he was quite a threat and his humor was more sadistic....I remember an issue where the Brotherhood attacks the X-Men he threatens to snap Amanda Seftons neck to stop Kurt from porting. Then after the Brotherhood is defeated he was talking trash about the Professor (whom Mystique had just shot) to Wolverine while buried underneath rubble.....

I really liked the fight he and Freedom Force had with the Grey Hulk. Beyond that he is a stock strongman in my book.

Blob can be awesome in the hands of a decent writer, he may not be on the same level as the Juggernaught, but if you can't get HIM, Blob is quite a good substitute!
