The Shiv Cactus

The Shiv Cactus

Enjoys direct light, high heat, and bloodlust.

It is fertilized solely with the decayed remains of fallen foes.

The Shiv Cactus held the coveted title of Current Champ from Tuesday, November 13, 2007 to Wednesday, November 14, 2007, heartily vanquishing Glowbo to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of The Warden.

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


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

  1. Took me a bit to wrap my puny brain around that one. I think we went a little too deep. Kev, bury this one with witty humour. Something with a high pH.

  2. I second somejeff's comment.

  3. i wondered who took my corkscrew…

    the shivcactus made a fatal mistake by revealing what he enjoys. the flower pot sure is cute though.

  4. I love the happy looking flower on his pot. Its a great little detail.

  5. Clearly, King Phosphero, who can suck basic nutrients out of even the poorest soil, will save the day.

  6. Vanquished by:
    The Olympic Fencer -
    Not only parries, but reposts!

  7. this one had me laughing for a while. I also enjoy how it's wielding a mace. It takes a special type of plant to shiv someone with a blunt weapon.

  8. Heheh - I didn't pay attention to the little icons under the description at first - nice touch, Sutter!

  9. HAHA. Love it, Sutter. And the icons… like the ones you find on clothing tags for wash instructions. Is that a metal coil it's holding on its lowest arm?

  10. That's a corkscrew, Kim. How would the plant uncork the wine to wash down it's enemies without it?

  11. Interesting shift here. Most of the superheroes exploit the weaknesses of their enemies to defeat them. But the Shiv Cactus actually feeds off the Glowbo's power so that it may kick more ass. Think about it; Popeye would whoop up on Spinachman pretty good, right?

  12. Haha - that's true! Nice observation, Jon :D

    I'll need to try that approach in future postings!
