Obnoxio The Clown

What's more appropriate on April Fool's Day than a clown?

How about Obnoxio the Clown killing the X-Men?

Yes, this was a real comic in the 1980s at the height of the X-Men comic craze.

The comic, Obnoxio The Clown (April, 1983) was written and drawn by Alan Kupperberg, with the nasty, cigar-smoking clown giving the X-Men trouble, all the while facing off against Eye Scream (a villain that turns into ice cream.  No, really....).

Obnoxio was a mascot and feature in Marvel's Crazy Magazine, which parodied movies and comics of the time, at least until the magazine ended in April, 1983 with it's 94th issue.
