Do We Have This? Needs a Better Description. I've Seen It a Million Times... When the Mad Doctor wants to "get down to business", he dons his evil apparel, and this almost always includes shoving his hands into big latex gloves with a (usually upward) thrusting motion while tugging on the back of the glove with the other hand; then there's a loud snap at the end when the back of the glove is released. Pretty much a Mad Doctor and Medic staple, and also pretty common in cartoons. Usually meant to inspire fear or to startle; usually part of the Creepy Physical. Needs a Better Title? Is This Tropable?? Needs More Examples. Split from Gloved Fist of Doom.
