Superheroes can talk like a pirate too!

Arrgh! I ‘most forgot that this day be Talk Like A Pirate Day! Well, lubbers, mayhap this be the place for superheroes, but t’day, the pirates be takin’ over! This blog been raided! And so, we be takin’ a look at some pirates what been superheroes or villains!

Psycho Pirate (DC Comics)
Arrrgh! This lubber be no kind of pirate a’tall! He has this magic mask, see, what makes him change how folks be feelin’. Ain’t got no right to the name of pirate, he don’t! I care not that he be one of the few men what know all 'bout the Crisis! He be a lubber through and through, and ne'er be a pirate any day of his life!

Captain Mako (City of Villains)
Shiver me timbers! This man look like he come straight from Davey Jone’s locker! A mutant who be a bit too much like a shark for me tastes, a life as a pirate was all that he could look forward ta, until Lord Recluse brought him into Arachnos.

Corsair and the Starjammers (Marvel Comics)
Pirates in space they be, and let not the fact that most folk consider ‘em heroes sway ye – they be pirates at heart. Aye, their cap’n be the pa to Cyclops of the X-Men, but they be pirates no less.

The Black Pirate (DC Comics)
Jon Valor be a working man’s pirate, he be. Sailed with a letter of mark from the King, he did, ‘til the curse’d day he been wrongly hanged for killin’ his own boy. Swore an oath, he did, that no body what died in that town would rest ‘till he been proved not a guilty man. A ghost he became, and haunted that town ‘till he met wit Jack Knight, the Starman, finally to be laid ta rest.

Ocean Master (DC Comics – Pre-Crisis)
Aquaman’s half-brother he be. Born wit no powers of his own, he grew ta be an angry man. Went to the sea, he did, and a pirate he was in th’ modern day, using machines ta make hisself a match for his brother.

Aye, Black Manta be, but t'were a bit much to use two foes of the King of the Sea.

I'll grant ye that I be fergettin' Ma Grimm's boy's time at sea. I naught made menti'n of the crew of the Fantastick from 1602 neither, fer which I can only be offerin' my pardon.

This be Aquaman we be talkin' about. If it not be for pirates, all he'd be a facin' would be sea monsters, pollution, and people who'd be up for a stealin' his throne.
