Brilliant, sir.

Captain Average

Wonderful association. Didn't the early Nightwing sport a disco collar?

Mark Engblom

Yeah, I took a look at Nightwing, too...but even though he had a "disco collar", it wasn't high enough to actually obscure his peripheral vision....so he wasn't eligible for membership. Other heroes with big (yet non-obscuring) collars were guys like Tyroc (Legion of Superheroes), Warlock (his later caped costume), and the Vision. I thought about including hooded heroes like Raven or the Spectre as well, but the "work-to-joke" ratio seemed a little steep.

Oh, and yes...I'm aware Yellow Jacket doesn't have a high collar...but I just couldn't say no to those impossibly huge shoulder "arches".


Once again -- LOL!!!

Paul McCall

You should add those wearing hoods. The Spectre, Green Arrow's current look, I'm sure there are several more. I'm not of the "hoodie" generation but I have a Green Lantern hoodie I wear when I get cold in the studio. The first time I wore it outside witeh the hood up I noticed the lack of peripheral vision and I immediately flashed on the Super-heroes that have a hood and how stupid it is.

Pat Curley

I always thought of those as vampire collars.

Mark Engblom

"You should add those wearing hoods."

Like I said earlier, it was more work than the joke needed (or that I had time to do)...but now that you bring it up, maybe the Obscured Peripheral Vision League will have to meet the Legion of Peripheral Vision-Challenged Superheroes at some point.

ShadowWing Tronix

Rank amateurs, all of them. I can put up a whole bunch of pics of Transformers with less peripheral vision than that.

J. L. Bell

Whom would this group fight? Warp is an obvious start.

Heh. Ol' Tunnel-Head himself!

Then there's the guys like Juggernaut and Whirlwind who can't even turn their heads without turning their entire body.
