Who's Who in the Superman Comics

Ambush Bug

Ambush Bug... has issues. Born Irwin Schwab, Ambush Bug is a legend in his own mind. He dreams of being Superman's partner, while in reality, his own conflict with The Man of Steel nearly leveled an entertainment district in Metropolis. He can transport himself anywhere, at anytime he wants. Ambush Bug also has a certain amount of super strength. These powers, however, are derived from his costume. More of a nuisance to Superman and the city of Metropolis, our hero only hopes to contain the madness of manhood that is Ambush Bug, not apprehend him.
