Beano Superstars – Doctor Gloom
Meet Bananaman’s gloomiest enemy!
Name: Doctor Gloom
Best friend: General Blight (even though Doc G hates him)
Worst enemy: Bananaman
Prized possession: His scientific equipment, and his teddy bear, Albert
Motto: “Every silver lining has a cloud”
Super skill: Doctor Gloom is a really really clever scientist If he hadn’t turned to the miserable side, he could have been as famous as Einstein or Sir Isaac Newton. Or even Ed Sheeran.
Family: Doctor Gloom was an only child. His dad was the legendary Ferdinand Flump, the saddest clown in history. His mum was Maria von Murk, the famous scientist who first discovered the secret of happiness, then buried it in a locked chest in a top secret location!
Fact: Doctor Gloom is the most miserable person in the world. His gloominess is actually infectious, and you can catch a nasty dose of misery if you spend too much time around him.
Doctor Gloom lets General Blight think that they’re partners in crime, but if they ever do manage to take over the world, the Doc plans to turn Blight into a baby and take charge all by himself! Mwa-ha-ha-ha!
