Popeye | Comics

An unorthodox protagonist with a squinting right eye, a classic corncob pipe hanging in his mouth and huge forearms that originates from his skinny upper arms, that's how the famous Popeye the Sailor Man is known to all.

He has a black haired extremely thin girlfriend named Olive Oyl, whom he usually goes to rescue from various troubles she finds herself into; especially from Popeye's long time nemesis, a thick bearded tall-strong Brutus who also has a keen interest on Olive.

But generally, Popeye manages to save Olive from his clutches often by eating his trusty dose of Spinach, which gives him incredibly abnormal strength to knock him off his feet. He even has shown the ability to punch people to distant places and even crumble mountains with ease.

Popeye also has crossed paths with another of his antagonist who is none other than the evil sorceress The Sea Hag. He has clashed with her so many times over the years as well as her minions like Alice the Goon and others. Popeye also has an adopted son named Swee'Pea, who was left to his doorstep once and is raised by him.

A lazy-ass friend named Wimpy, who usually does nothing other than relentlessly consuming huge loads of hamburgers is known as one of Popeye’s few friends. While not saving Olive from dangers, the sailor man often keeps looking for his long-lost 99 year-old sailor father Poopdeck Pappy time to time over the places during his naval adventures.
