Big Bertha

Well, from the picture, we doubt anybody is confused as to why they call her Big Bertha, but this obese mutant from the Marvel universe actually has the power to manipulate her body weight, and the fatter she grows, the stronger and more indestructible she gets. Now are you ready for the REALLY gross part? Bertha slims down by "power puking", a process in which in one heaving yack, she expels nearly all of her body fat. Apparently, nobody ever told her about Jenny Craig.
