WIN 1 of 5 double passes to DREDD in 3D *Competition Closed*

Competition Closed: Thank you to everyone who entered, the winners will be contacted shortly and their prizes will be sent out to them. If you didn’t win keep an eye on the site or our Twitter (@SpaceMeatAU) for future competitions.

Judge Dredd is without a doubt a classic comic book bad-arse. He judges criminals, never shows his face and has an insane gun.

That got me thinking, where he might rank in the all-time list of comic book bad-arsery. So, for your chance to WIN simply tell us: “Who you think the most ‘bad-arse’ comic book character is and why?”

Do that in the comments below or on Twitter directed at @SpaceMeatAU and you could find yourself winning one of five double passes to DREDD in 3D.

Dredd, a futuristic cop combines the power of judge, jury and executioner in Mega City One, a massive city that stretches down the entire East coast of America. The endlessly inventive minds of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring DREDD (played by Karl Urban) to life in a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner’s and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip. In Cinemas October 25.

    Can’t go past dark knight returns Batman. Geriatric and retired and still manages to kick superman’s ass

  • Oooo great question!

    The answer is probably anyone written by Garth Ennis, Warren Ellis or Grant Morrison, haha.

    Butcher from The Boys or Jenny Sparks from The Authority are standout examples for me, but it’s hard to go past the anti-hero Spider Jerusalem.

    As you can tell, I don’t really think much of the regular supermobs, haha.

    That said, Miller’s Batman is obviously pretty damn hardcore, and this man right here, Dredd, is surely among the most badass of all badassery.

    In line with what mkstvns has said, I’m going with Arseface from Garth Ennis’ Preacher due to his face meeting half the requirements alone.

    Plus it doesn’t hurt that he survived a self-inflicted shotgun blast right into his own face.

    The Punisher


    His name is Frank Castle, thats bad arse right there.

    He is not even a super hero, he is just your regular run-of-the-mill average-joe Vietnam-vet ex-special forces hardcore Marine Recon Force mofo and one of the only heroes out there with the ballsack to shoot first, snap necks, punch peoples’ faces into their brains, and leave the question-asking to the reporters.

    Stole this quote, but I thought it was appropriate:

    The Punisher is an unstoppable reckless badarse who goes out into a world of supervillains with ridiculous powers and teaches them that you don’t need to be exposed to vast amounts of radioactive slime to bust criminals’ heads – a rifle butt works just fine.

  • Easily Aquaman…CAN talk to fish.. what other super powers could you possibly need?

    Space Ghost! The only ‘bad-arse’ comic book character who hosts his own late-night talk show…
