Until The Superior Foes of Spider-Man - an awesome new Marvel series you should be reading if you like good, fun comics - the only Boomerang I knew from comics was a Captain and a member of the Flash's rogues gallery from the Distinguished Competition.
But 5 issues into Superior Foes, I absolutely adore him. Frank Myers has no super-powers - he's an average guy who has honed his natural abilities thanks to an early baseball career, which eventually spiralled into the world of super-villainy.
The Superior Foes of Spider-Man paints Boomerang as the aspirational (but incompetent) leader of the Sinister Six. He wants to be a major player, but sheer ineptitude has, so far, limited his opportunity to fulfil that dream.
Who knows what awaits Boomerang in the hands of our Thoughtballoons tenures - or you, dear reader and comics scripter, who we welcome with open arms to submit a script below.
