Which Dick Tracy Villain Are You?

Ned recognizes Dr. Foster, who treated him thirty years ago. However, he does not remember the darkest moments of that era. Dr. Foster turns out the light and sets up a projector. The Juvenile Aggression Study (sponsored by Swanson's TV Dinners) depicts Ned as he really was: a mischievous, destructive troublemaker who insults his fellow playmates in preschool and hassles them.

Little Ned: [barging in] Whee! I'm Dick Tracy! [hitting the other kids] Bang! Take that Pruneface! Now I'm Pruneface, take that Dick Tracy! Now I'm Prune Tracy, take that Dick...

I would love for there to be a service where your submit a name to a artist who could draw in Chester Gould's style and he would turn it into a villain for you.

My suggestion: Hiram Glyphic, stealer of Egyptian art.

I'm thinking of this more along the lines of something you stick on your refrigerator, like those mood charts that ask "How are you feeling today?"
