Thumb Gremlin

Thumb Gremlin

Steals your thumbs while you sleep.

No more scissors, and no more videogames.

Thumb Gremlin held the coveted title of Current Champ from Tuesday, August 12, 2008 to Tuesday, August 12, 2008, heartily vanquishing Midwife to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Mr. McCandz.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Kevin .

Audience

Quotes overheard while standing in the crowd that gathered to watch the carnage…

  1. Oooo inkwash. Very nice.

    The Thumb Gremlin reminds me of the hero that switched right feet with left feet, hahaha.

    Also: "No more movie critics."

  2. @ Burt: haha! Exactly!
    I give this one two stumps up!

  3. Nothing better then a naked gremlin running around stealing thumbs!...

  4. Is this Shalthazar before he joined up with the Dark Queen? Or is thumbstealing just a hobby?

    Either way, just give him some hard candy and he'll leave you alone.

  5. I just want to put it on record that my bag of thumbs has nothing to do with this guy.

  6. AJOB223, you just warmed the cockles of my heart with that observation ;)

  7. I can see this being defeated by the great "Stumpy" the Daemon Hunter!

  8. mmm, thumbs... delicious, delicious thumbs.


    wait, what?

  9. Erm, hold on. If this guy is the scourge of opposable thumbs, then won't he actually be foiled by none other than the un-oppose-inator?

    Robert | [ a ]
  10. Well, Mr. Unopposifier's superpower is quite specifically defined as "will always win if not a thing opposes him." So he would only defeat a fellow whose superpower was "does not have opposable thumbs" rather than "has lots of other people's opposable thumbs."

    This is, of course, entirely speculative, as The U was tragically vanquished in noble combat and returned in shame to his home planet, thus condemning such match-ups to the land of could-have-been.

  12. This is amazing! He looks so bloody evil! How much time do you guys take, on an average, for drawing this?

    sammy | [ a ]
  13. I usually spend about 1 to 2 hours on the actual drawing, depending on the medium, or if I screw up. But of course, the thing that takes the most time is thinking of a reply. I start that as soon as I see Sutter's and they don't always come quick :)

  14. ahhhh i just got in my head who the next hero could be!!! but i can't say! i can't say! i don't want to make their job harder!!!

    *sigh...

    wow, is his giant nose a thumb???

  15. Clearly, Kevin, you've never seen scissors wielded two-handed -- thumbs are pretty much unnecessary. I dare say Sutter has pulled another Lion-X...
