And that's another thing, why do baddies always bring along goons? For non-superpowered ones like the Joker, I understand but why does the Green Goblin need mooks? Does he just like seeing Spider-Man beat people up?

The goons are there so the baddie can see how good the hero is and if they need to sneek out the bathroom windo!

I remember the Green Goblin once used his goons to successfully annihilate the base and minions of The Superior Spiderman. I guess they have uses. I'm sure it's always useful to have assistants to do mundane work and such. Come to think of it, goons might be the equivalent of superheroes having sidekicks. I can't recall the last time I've seen a supervillain that had his/her own sidekick, versus an army of goons and lesser powered minions. Also, I think goons might exist so the heroes have a chance to show off their stuff while not being able to confront the main villain the moment they show up.

@Chernobog. As for a villain with a sidekick I reference you to Joker. "Haarrlleeyy!!!" Others are out there sure but yes for villains their sidekicks are usually more in line with freaky love interests.

I don't know. I think the difference between a sidekick (Robin) and a partner (Harley) is that sidekicks are unpaid. Robin is slave labor.

Sounds like the main villain knows that they'll never have to pay these guys.

I fully expect their fighting skills to be about as strong as their observation skills. Which, of course, means they're bee food.

Having a gang of idiot thugs do server a purpose for your average super-villain. Even the best of villains can't be everywhere at once. And they do serve as distractions in case the villain needs to make a speedy getaway. And besides, what is a true superhero comic without the occasional gratuituous violence?

It would be my completely boring life. Thanks a lot.

Yeah! Distraction! Have thugs do a thing in point A while there's a thug dressed as you in point b while you're at point C, which is inconveniently far away from both points A and B.

Hmmmm. But are you outsmarting the hero or your own thugs. Jeeez. Sounds like no one wants to have to pay those guys.

Poor thugs. Even with that snazzy body armor and comprehensive arsenal, they still feel like the failures we know they'll be. (I also love how all four thugs have different body types and faces, a lot of detail for characters who so far seem to be cannon fodder).

You can thank 40. oz for that. He always goes the extra mile with background and minor characters.
