All five heroes, assembled.

The Unstoppables was a Hubris Comics comic book series that featured their most popular heroes fighting together against super-powered villains.

Background[edit | edit source]

Bringing together five popular heroes in the Hubris Comics lineup: Mistress of Mystery, The Silver Shroud, Grognak the Barbarian, The Inspector, and Manta Man (in an apparent attempt to salvage his flagging popularity). Together, they would face off against a variety of foes, including fantasy spirits, giant dinosaurs, aliens from another galaxy, and of course, various un-American villains: Communist and anti-capitalists. All issues were approved by the American Comics Code, apparently, as sufficiently patriotic and educational, and sold at $15 apiece.[1]

The Unstoppables! appear to have been one of the more popular franchises, as Hubris Comics licensed Don't Be Bored Games Company to create a board game based on their adventures: Unstoppable Shindig![2]

The entire team is trapped in the dimension of the eponymous Pterror-Dactyls, giant aeromobile dinosaurs. It appears that Manta Man, thanks to his cape, would have the advantage in fighting these monsters.[5]

Flung far away from home, to a galaxy far-far away, the Unstoppables meet and interact with a variety of aliens ranging from the strange to the absolutely bizarre. It appears that Grognak the Barbarian in particular has a terrific time, challenging a giant sentient lobster to arm-wrestling.[6]

Can Our Heroes Stop Dr. Brainwash And His Army Of De-Capitalists?[edit | edit source]

The most overtly political issue, where the intrepid heroes face off against Dr Brainwash and his army of robotic De-Capitalists, the foundation of freedom, democracy, and the American world order.[7]
