Weirdest Superheroes: Red Bee

lame 13

It’s easy to make fun of the Red Bee. Yes, his superpower was fighting villains with a swarm of trained bees. Yes, his favorite bee was named Michael and lived in his belt. Yes, he managed to get himself killed by Baron Blitzkrieg.

But there are five cool things about him:

  1. He was an Assistant District Attorney in his spare time, blazing a trail for lawyer superheroes like She-Hulk.
  2. He trained bees to respond to his every command.
  3. His ghost has appeared to other superheroes.
  4. He sacrificed his life to save the Freedom League. Which, if you think about it, is a fitting death for a bee-based superhero—laying down his life for the hive.
  5. He’s one of the greatest superheroes ever to come out of Oregon.

And that’s before we get to those amazing yellow-and-red striped pants.
