    I loved his Afro wig from the 70s. He should go back to it.

    The same place all the fat superheroes are.

    It's kinda ridiculous and somewhat sad.

    Diversity needs work on all fronts. There should definitely be a few bald or balding heroes. Just because a guy has a receding hairline doesn’t mean he can’t be a super hero. There should be overweight heroes. I don’t get why so many characters are so idealized. I just think they should look like regular people.

    FYI Geoff Johns and Dale Eaglesham patterned Citizen Steel (Nathan Heywood)'s hairline, after Johns' own then receding hairline.

    It continually bothers me that every live action actor that has played Alfred has a full head of hair. The only exception being William Austin, who played Alfred in the original 1943 serial, BATMAN, and who served as the model for Alfred going forward in the comic books--even Eric Wilton, who played Alfred in the following 1949 serial, BATMAN AND ROBIN, was not balding. If Gary Oldman can so perfectly look the part of James W. Gordon, is it so hard for a dedicated actor to take on the look of Alfred Pennyworth? Also, grow a moustache and don't wear any glasses, please. If the Matt Reeves Batman movie can satisfy my need to see a comics accurate Alfred, it will have scored a major victory.

    Don't know if anyone has mentioned Onyx or Great Ten's Thundermind yet.

    Kai-Ro


    And I know the OP mentioned him as the other than example, but we can't write off J'onn J'onzz, (despite the current origin, we all know he was a founder) one of the most prominent members of the Justice League, DC's greatest team.
    To argue DC has no prominent bald hero you'd have to ignore one of their most prominent.

    Huh! Martian manhunter is bald. I wonder what martians with hair will look like.

    Marvel also has Nebula and Gladiator's female cousin Xenith.

    In the pre-Crisis comics, all the green Martian men were bald and all the green Martian women had hair.

    I can go outside and see regular people. People in comics are idealized because it adds to the escapism.

    I get that. The escape part for me is on the setup. The aliens. The robots. The crazy powers. For me, that’s all the escape I like. I’m not much of a traditional costume guy either so I’m weird. Lol

    What’s more escapist than a bald fat superhero?

    You forgot to add old to fat and bald.
