Number ten on our list is Leonard Skivorski, Jr (aka Doc Samson).
Doc Samsom is a psychiatrist who, while treating Bruce Banner (Hulk) as a patient, exposed himself to high levels of gamma radiation, gaining superhumanly muscular physique and causing his hair to turn green and to grow long, suggestive of his biblical namesake.
As a result, Doc Samson’s strength is equal to that of Hulk’s while the latter is in a calm emotional state. Unlike the Hulk, however, Samson’s strength does not increase due to adrenaline surges while angry.
Initially, Samson’s strength depended upon the length of his green hair. However, his gamma mutation eventually stabilized, making the length of his hair no longer a factor.
Samson is able to leap great distances vertically and horizontally, though not nearly as far as the Hulk or the Abomination. He has managed to knock out Hulk once but broke his hand doing it.
Doc Samson is partly based on the Israelite hero Samson, sharing a name and having the same relation between their strength and their hair’s length.

Plus, with a super-smart wife like Wanda he can focus on the most important things, which are – keeping the wishes and the laughs coming!
Since Cosmo is usually the cause behind Timmy’s crazy adventures, he plays a very important role in everything that happens.

He’s insane, seriously insane. In fact, he considers his insanity – of which he is quite coherently aware – to be his primary advantage in any conflict.
