The League of Regrettable Sidekicks


Batman has Robin. Captain America has Bucky. And Yankee Doodle has Dandy. Being a superhero is hard work, which is why so many comics characters rely on a sidekick- someone to watch the hero’s back, help the hero search for clues, or, if nothing else, give the hero someone to talk to. But not every superhero achieves the glory of Batman, and not all sidekicks are as capable as Boy Wonder.

In The League of Regrettable Sidekicks, author Jon Morris shines a hilarious spotlight on forgotten helpers like Thunderfoot (explosive-soled assistant to the Human Bomb), super-pets (like Frosting, polar bear pal of space hero Norge Benson), fan favourites (Rick Jones, sidekick to hald the Marvel Universe), and obscure partners of iconic heroes (Superman Junior’s career barely got off the ground).
