The dopest supervillain you've never heard about...Snowflame

 This dude is the greatest underrated concept for a  super villain ever fathomed.

This dudes swag is on a whole nother level. Could you imagine the potential? With the success of breaking bad, cocaine cowboys, they need to do something with this guy. He's a literal trap God. He has more personality in his nose than the entire legion of doom. He's like ultimate warrior meets tony montana.

I think the wiki page you linked sums it up perfectly:

There's nothing in this character. It's a joke, and a weak one at that.

Look up Atop the Fourth Wall, Linkara made a character for his show out of Snowflame

From a creative standpoint, his character is gold. I'd take him over the joker easily.

-80's throwback design
-Feels no pain due to being heavily sedated under the infuence of drugs
-Superstrength, superspeed, super reflexes
-pyrokinesis
-Flamboyant quirky personality
-You can use his character to shoehorn a story about the illegal drug trafficking industry and the war on drugs.
-witty one-liners, colorful design
-Worships cocaine as a deity
-likeability, novelty factor
-one-of-a-kind gimmick
-his only weakness is cocaine dependence, can be played up for laughs or for serious

The funny thing is despite his quirkyness, he is a believable heavy hitter. You can actually make him whip someone like aquaman's ass and it wouldn't be too much of a stretch

Guess it's just a matter of taste. What you see as "character gold" I see as one-shot gimmick material. Particularly given how one-note all your quoted pages look. I wouldn't be surprised if the character has been given more depth than that, but you certainly didn't show off any of it.

He's probably a fun joke character, but I'd read Lobo for that.

Seriously, I can't read anything about Snowflame without thinking of Linkara now xD

He's a great character for laughs, but for serious badass villains, I'll take my Secret Six, thanks. <3

(And screw you DC, for canceling Secret Six to do your idiotic New 52 crap :I)

Okay, yes, they're the protagonists in their story, but to be fair at least several of its members have had their own runs as proper antagonists in other comics (most notable is probably Bane, the man who broke the Bat), and they're just plain good characters. Gail Simone; never retire and never die, your work is legendary.

I would LOVE to know what got her fired last year.

For some reason DC suddenly has had an attack of chronic stupid in the last year or so. Lots of nerdrage with the folks around here.

I would hesitate to put the blame completely on DC's shoulders for some of this.  Fan outcry has taken a few things to extreme levels of stupidity just by reading the headline and assuming without context on more than one occasion.
