The Fatal Five was always one of the cooler and formidable villain teams of my youth. Not only could they take on the Legion of Super-Heroes, they were all so creepy - The Emerald Empress had that big crazy floating eyeball that would follow her, Tharok was the first half man/half machine character that I had seen. Mano had the hidden face and The Persuader had his scary mask and giant axe. Creepiest of all was Validus - a giant with no eyes and an exposed brain! Great stuff!
