Just look at that guy. Holy Jesus.
Look like anyone familiar?
Just as Shroud was intended by his creator only as a mash up between Batman and The Shadow, The Creeper was created from the “What if the Joker were a good guy?” idea.
And it’s an awesome idea.
I’m not sure what actually would be scarier, this guy fighting crime or causing it.
Depending on which version you read, The Creeper is either an asshole talk show host who gets fused to his costume, injected with vaguely-defined stem/ nano cells, or is a species of demon.
Really, they’re all friggin’ sweet origin stories.
Now, we need Warren Ellis or Garth Ennis to write the definitive Creeper series, and we’re basically all set with life.
