|First Appearance:||Superman: The Movie|
Otis was one of Lex Luthor's henchmen, usually portrayed as bumbling and stupid. He first appeared in Superman: The Movie, and its sequel, Superman II. He was later reimagined in the TV cartoon Young Justice.
Otis is Luthor's bumbling fat henchman in the first Superman movie. He is first seen getting a paper for his boss then returning to Luthor's underground lair and Luthor tells him he was followed again (Meaning Otis is constanly followed by the police when getting things for Lex). He then goes with Luthor and Miss Teschmacher to launch the nuculear missiles but makes a mistake when punching in the wrong codes claiming his arm wasn't long enough but Lex later succeeds in setting them up this time sending Miss Teschmacher instead. He is then seen with Luthor when Superman arrives and when Luthor tells Superman his plan and is annoyed that Otis wanted a place named after him called "Otisburg" in Luthor's new city. He is then seen with Lex watching the missiles launch only to find Miss Teschmacher has double crossed them and helped Superman. He is last seen at the end of the film when he and his boss are carried to prison by Superman and are walked off to their cells while Luthor claims he'll have revenge while Otis repeats what he says but Lex tells him to shut up. ("Superman: The Movie")
Otis returns in Superman II but with a much smaller role. He is still Luthor's henchman in prison and is still as idiotic as before. After Luthor distracts the guards with holograms of himself and Otis playing chess they are greeted by Miss Teschmacher who is in a hot air balloon and throws a ladder to them and Lex climbs up but when Otis tries too his weight pulls the balloon down so Lex cuts the rope and Otis falls to the ground and is cornered by the police and is once again captured while Lex and Miss Teschmacher float away to safety. It is unknown what became of Otis after this but he most likely stayed in prison for longer then he should have because of his attempted escape. Otis is played by actor Ned Beatty (Well known for roles such as Lotso in Toy Story 3) in the two Superman movies. ("Superman II")
