You read that right...Kulan Gath TPB! I ain't afraid to say it either! I'm going all Conan-era up in the Marvel-verse! OK, this is by far the weirdest TPB I have wanted based around a character, but it's got some cool issues by some cooler artists. Check it out...Barry Windsor-Smith, John Byrne, John Romita Jr., and George PĂ©rez. Now, telling me I'm wrong. I don't think so!

Wanted TPB : Buffed Despero VS JLA

Writer: Gerry Conway (1986) and Keith Ian Giffen and J. M. DeMatteis
Luke McDonnell (1986) and Adam Hughes

DC Comics (1986/1998)

Justice League of America Vol. 1 #247-254
and Vol. 2 #37-40

Despero was a scrawny kid (alien ruler) who got sand kicked in his face (freedom from his dictatorship) by a bully (The Justice League of America), but with the help of the Charles Atlas work out plan (the Flame of Py'tar) he got buffed and kicked their ass! In one such ass kicking... 

Clipped from Wikipedia: ...the battle ended only through Martian Manhunter employing a one-time, never before seen application of his telepathy to trick Despero into thinking he had successfully killed not only the Justice League, but all life on Earth, causing him to let go of his hatred and regressing to the form of a fetus.
WHAT! WHAT! You read that right! He killed EVERYONE (or thought it) and was so happy turned into a fetus. A fetus...HAHAHHA...OK!
