The League of Monocles

Installment Three

The League of Monocles

Without a doubt, one of the most powerful factions within the Superhero community is the prestigious League of Monocles. Like so many other super clubs, one cannot apply for membership, but must be asked; and while the League refuses to reveal the pre-requisites for admittance, by simply studying the known members we can deduce just what it takes to make the cut.

  1. Impaired vision in one eye. Though, since none of the heroes with eyepatches seem to be members, I suspect you still need both eyes in your head. This is a group that places a lot of stock in binocular vision.
  2. A considerable amount of financial stability, gained presumably through sound investment in the East India Trading Company, success in the field of villainous medicine, or through the exploitation of one's peasant vassals or political constituents. I guess what I'm saying is... none of these guys are moonlighting as a Denny's manager, you know what I mean?
  3. Some sort of mustache. Unless you're a pig.

Here now are all six known members of The League of Monocles. View them at your own risk!

  2. Thanks, Madman! It's a change from before, but still should yield some fun :)

  3. You know, this is why most villains fail - the lack of stereovision means they have no depth perception, which in turn could make you angry enough at the world to want revenge… right?

  4. That explains why there's so many evil cyclops. I mean... when's the last time you saw a cyclops win the Nobel Peace Prize, right?

  5. I can't believe there are only six characters with monocles. Just wait for the League of Mustaches. That will be much much mightier.

  6. It also rocks that I got to put in comment no. 1. That was the highlight of the day. Granted, a pretty slow day, but still...
