Powers: The ability to eat anything
Why DC would be insane to build a movie around them: We could fill this list just with some of the goofier corners of the Legion of Super-Heroes roster, which includes such heavyweight as Bouncing Boy (can blow himself up into an agile beachball-shaped person) or Triplicate Girl (who later got downgraded to Duo Damsel after one of her duplicate bodies was killed), without even getting to the Legion of Substitute Heroes (whose members include Stone Boy, with the power to turn into an immobile statue!). (And we made an exception later in the list for Arm Fall-Off Boy, a hero so lame he couldn't make the cut for either team.) But good ol' Tenzil Kem would be a remarkably bad choice to headline a DC movie. While some writers have figured out a way to use him as comic relief in other stories — or even to find creative uses for his powers, like the ability to spit acid — down deep this is a guy whose power is the ability to eat anything. Even in IMAX 3D, that's not working.
