Five Comic Book Pumpkinheads For Halloween

26 October 2009 6:44 PM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Traditionally speaking, Halloween Week is a time for the carving-inclined to sharpen their tools of the trade and dig into a pumpkin. Yeah, there's some gross seed scoopage involved, but after a gourds' chewy center is removed, the plants present a perfect canvas for inscribing a fans' glowing facade of choice.

Unfortunately, too many carvers have turned to lives of crime, adopting the glowing jack o' lantern for fiendish purposes—especially in comic books.

It seems like no universe is safe from pumpkinheaded hoodlums and their equally affable and/or evil ways. That said, Splash Page counts down five pumpkinheads of note on this, the spookiest and most pumpkin laden week of the year.
