Ten-Eyed Man

Philip Reardon had his face blown up twice (once in Vietnam, once in Gotham City) leaving him blind. An experimental surgery attached his optic nerves to his fingers, and he was somehow given the ability to see through his fingertips.

This, in addition to his combat training in Vietnam, somehow was supposed to have made him a very powerful foe, but no one seems to be clear on what was so dangerous about someone who could see through his fingertips.

Pros: Ten-Eyed Man has a cult following, not unlike Killer Moth. is a fan (sort of).

Cons: His ability isn't that powerful for fighting purposes (though I bet it could be handy for a spy), and the fingertip eyeball thing isn't at all believable.

How I'd do it: I guess make it Iraq or Afghanistan instead of Vietnam. That's about all I can think of.

Casting Guesses: He sometimes has the crazy look on his face like Mel Gibson in his mug shot, so I'd go with him.

Verdict: Nope.
