Boggles the Clue Clown was an elderly and respected clown-themed super villain who was also the infamous arch-nemesis of Captain Sunshine prior to his death. His schemes revolved around gags, jokes, and riddles, which he often used to antagonize Captain Sunshine and his young ward Wonder Boy. He was also secretly a member of the Council of 13, the overseers of the Guild of Calamitous Intent.

While he appeared to have died of heart disease, Brock found it very suspicious that the one member Monstroso identified as a council member just suddenly died. Though there's very little evidence, it is possible that Boggles may had been killed by the Investors to cover their tracks, or by the Sovereign as he ends up killing several members of the council in All This And Gargantua-2.


Season 3

Boggles along with the rest of the Council oversaw The Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend's trial.[1]

Season 4

He was present when the Council held a trial for Intangible Fancy due to illegally smuggling contraband. He then witnessed fellow councilmen Red Mantle and Dragoon's kidnapping at the hands of Phantom Limb.[2]

Season 5

Boggles was revealed by Monstroso to be a member of the Council of 13 during his interrogation at the Office of Secret Intelligence.[3]

Boggles soon after died from heart disease while driving his clown car and no one was able to get to him in time due to the large number of henchmen compacted into the tiny car. A funeral service was later held for Boggles with all his closest friends and enemies present, with even Captain Sunshine mourning his loss.[4] Despite this, the Clue Clown pulled off one last punchline by springing out of his coffin on a giant spring after the priest read his last "jack-in-the-box" riddle (which baffled Captain Sunshine but was easily solved by Wonder Boy V). This naturally led Red Mantle to yell out "too soon" to the deceased Boggles. He was then buried by earth elemental Red Mantle as Captain Sunshine had an emotional breakdown.
