I had to vote for Wez. I liked the fact that he had more instinct about the world he was in than the Humoungous did. I love the scene when he goes ape-sh*t over the feral kid's boomerang taking out his boyfriend, and the Humoungous' line;

"Vee all hav someone vee love, but vee do it my vay"
"Loser's, loser's way"

Definitely The Toecutter. A wonderful character well played.

I voted for Vernon Wells as Wez, definitely the most memorable "Mad Max" villain for me.

So did the Wez fans sport a pair of 'Arseless' leather breeks back in the day?

Default Lord Humungus

loving Humungus,
Lord Humungus (Kjell Nilsson) is the violent, yet charismatic and articulate leader of a "vicious gang of post-holocaust, motorcycle-riding vandals" who "loot, rape, and kill the few remaining wasteland dwellers. Styling himself the "warrior of the wasteland, [and] the ayatullah of rock-and-rollah", Humungus' "malevolence courses through his huge pectorals, [and] pulses visibly under his bald, sutured scalp."Humungus' face is never seen, as he wears a hockey goalies' mask; as far as clothing, he has a bare torso adorned only with leather biker paraphernalia. There is nothing to suggest what his background was prior to the apocalyptic war, but there are indications that he possibly suffered from radiation exposure. In a brief cutaway, as Humungus pulls his revolver from a case and loads a single bullet to shoot out the engine of the Mack truck, we see a black and white photograph of a family with a military officer in the father's position, though it is unclear whether this would be Humungus's former family. Although ruthless, he also appears to have the ability to think rationally in times of crisis.

Imo that Humongous action figure sports a superior physique to it's inspiration!

It was a tough choice between the above and Wez but i had to bite the bullet and go for 'The Ayatollah Of Rock 'n' Rolla' as i'm in agreement with your reasoning. With Wez what you see is what you get but it's not quite that linear with Humongous. There's more to the guy than just pure brutality and he's more of a thinking man's kinda savage.
