9. The Clown/Violator (Spawn, 1997)
The Clown: Tubby, with bright blue face make-up. Think George Costanza from Seinfeld with longer wisps of hair.
Why He’s Funny: Because he’s played by John Leguizamo, so of course he’s got a nice line in sarky, sour humour when battling the back-from-the-dead titular avenger. “Come on, my barbecued friend. Don't want to keep that side order of potato salad waiting, now do we?”
Why He’s Terrifying: He’s a demon. From hell. And he eats kittens. Plus, he farts a lot, which is where his real evil lies.
