Why hello there, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week 69 of Obscurity of DC’s Obscure Book Club! This week will be a mini, and we’ll be focusing on…


Number of Issues: 2

Description from comicvine.gamespot.com: Allergent was a man named Maxwell Veezey. He suffered from severe allergies, of which medications had little effect. Hoping to escape from all plant life, he moved to Gotham City. After finding that Gotham City had plenty of trees and plants, he donned a toxin suit and spread herbicides and defoliants throughout the city parks.

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. In your opinion, what sets Allergent apart from other villains, especially in Gotham? Explain.
  2. Why do you think Allergent is using plants to kill other plants?
  3. Why do you think the name “Allergent” stuck, instead of the media’s “Weedwacker?” Explain.
