Starch Duke Ferdinand

Starch Duke Ferdinand

Manifests a stifling stiffness.

A couple sprays from the Duke and The Bends will be a lot less flexible.

A distinguished member of The League of Monocles.

Starch Duke Ferdinand held the coveted title of Current Champ from Monday, July 28, 2008 to Monday, July 28, 2008, heartily vanquishing The Bends to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Hugh Midity.

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


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

  1. A proud member of The League of Monocles, along with Ben Soilperocks-Hyde, Dr. Empathy, Quack Sawbones, Avaricious Oinksly, and Doctor Constipator,

  2. Isn't "Manifests a Stifling Stiffness" also the current ad slogan for Cialis?

  9. I'm not so sure about this one. I love the hero, but seems he could be taken out pretty easy?

  10. I think the League of Monocles sounds like something that should have it's own comic book. I can't really picture them having their own TV show though.

  11. I've noted before Kevin's penchant for all things Edwardian. This photo is notably monocleless.

    I think the next 'Superest' innovation I would like to see is some statistics about our heros: the frequency of monocles, handlebar moustasche probability; sidebar coefficient; nobility count; professions and tradespeople; flora-fauna ratios; &tc &tc.
