Mark Waid: Greatest. Writer. Ever.

When it came to creating characters for the Legion, Mark Waid dug deep into Legion history to find the lamest Legionnaire rejects ever. Then he surpassed them.

No, it's magnitudes worse than Matter-Eater Lad (who got in when Polar Boy, Night Girl, Chlorophyll Kid, Fire Lad, and Color Kid couldn't - OK, Stone Boy was pretty lame), worse even than Tusker, Eyeful Ethel, Antennae Boy, Green Boy, Double Header, The Mess, Fortress Lad, Polecat, Porcupine Pete, or even Arm-Fall-Off Boy.

In Supergirl and the Legion 17, Waid created Seiss. A guy who farts earthquakes.

Blech; a fart joke? Sounds like Waid.
