The Marvel Comics supervillain team Squadron Sinister is formidable. Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Sal Buscema and debuting in The Avengers #69 (Oct. 1969), the evil team members were based on DC Comics characters: the Superman-inspired Hyperion, the Batman-esque Nighthawk, the Flash-like Whizzer, etc.
The creative team on the Marvel Comics Secret Wars tie-in Squadron Sinister – writer Marc Guggenheim and artists Carlos Pacheco, Mariano Taibo, and Frank Martin – remind readers just how powerful, evil, and scary these characters are.
At Nothing But Comics, we were curious to know which Squadron Sinister character Guggenheim thought was the scariest, so we dispatched superhero the Red Bee to ask him.
Thanks for the tip about Nighthawk, Marc! We’re eager to read future issues of Squadron Sinister – the first issue is on sale now!
