Here’s another write-up of a Marvel ‘bronze-age’ villain. This time it’s a version of Hyperion from Avengers #141. In the story arc, Hyperion and the rest of his Squadron Supreme teammates are working for Roxxon Oil — which has plans to take over the world using the powers of the Serpent Crown!
This version of Hyperion is much less powerful than later versions, but he’s still extremely powerful, especially when facing against a group of standard power heroes. Hyperion believes himself to be the most-powerful hero of his Earth, but in one of my favorite superhero beatdowns, the Vision lays him low using his disruption ability.
