NEW YORK—The world of bubblegum- related comics was forever changed Monday, when, after more than 50 years, the Bazooka Joe supporting character known as "Mort" finally revealed the lower half of his face to be a grotesque mask of third-degree burns. The eye-opening strip, unveiled earlier this week by the Topps Company, is being called the darkest, most compelling installment in the entire Bazooka Joe series. In the strip, a wisecracking Mort pulls down his trademark red turtleneck and, for the first time, exposes millions of readers to the jumbled mass of flesh and bone that lies beneath it. It's a paradigmatic shift on a scale never before seen in bubblegum literature. According to sources at Topps, the shocking revelation represents five decades of careful planning on the part of the strip's many artists.

Come on, how cool is a teen who wears an eyepatch for no apparent reason, has existed in comics for over 50 years, and has traveled through time AND space? Check out Joe's website here be forewarned, it has some weird song playing. The only reason Jesse is not on the list higher is because he only wore an eyepatch for the last 16 issues of Preacher's 66 issue run, so it didn't seem fair to include him over cool characters who have been wearing the patch for much longer. Cool, conflicted villain - even cooler, conflicted villain - cool, conflicted mercenary - de-aged doofus - over-the-top villain. Still, the good still outweighes the bad with Deathstroke.
