20 Badass Comic Book Heroes that are Cool on Purpose - #16
Gladiator - born Kallark
Don't let his homosexual appearance fool you, Gladiator is a genuine badass. Other than the fact that Gladiator has a sick mohawk that doesn't get messed up in battle, he's also the leader of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. They're a group of superpowered warriors who are in charge of protecting an entire galaxy. He's purple because he's a Strontian alien and probably because someone this badass cannot be perfect. Get this... his powers actually get better and worse based on his confidence level!
If he was Kanye West, he'd be pretty much unstoppable. He's 6'6" and 595lbs. 'Gladiator' is also one of the manliest names in all of comics. He can shoot lasers from his eyes that are "hotter than a star", live through a supernova explosion, and fly 100 times the speed of light. He also has superhuman strength, frost breath and a mohawk. I guess you need that if you randomly get in fights with the Thunder God.
