KILLER CUDGEL is my entry for
’s “A.D.A.M. Villain Contest” [link]
Sam “Smasher” Brock, a feared hit man of the London underworld, took on more than he could handle when he found himself surrounded by a group of chanting centenarians, from whom he was supposed to collect protection money. The elderly group turned out to be a secret sect of druids who attempted to curse Smasher Brock, turning him into a harmless hedge. Brock lashed out, interrupting the spell, and fled.
Calling himself the KILLER CUDGEL, Smasher Brock is now a towering man-plant hydrid who is fond of creating a giant wooden club from his arms and selling his services to the highest bidder. Killer Cudgel is impervious to small arms and most physical attacks. His thorny skin makes him a formidable wrestler as does his tremendous strength. Killer Cudgel’s most potent attack is his cudgel, which he can create and wield in either hand. He is fond of swinging his weapon with devastating results while yelling “SMASH!”
