The cover character is a Red Basher
Destroy!! was a comic book created by Scott McCloud. It is an affectionate parody of superhero while being a mostly plotless 32 page fight scene.
Red Basher was wrecking Manhattan, but Captain Maximum attempted to calm him and make peace. However, Red Basher just yelled "DESTROY!!" and then attacked him. This led to a nearly 32 pages-long fight scene. Captain Maximum at first attempted to stop him. But as the battle escalated out of control, he lowered his expectations until he convinced Red Basher to just shut up.
32 pages of the comic is just one almost meaningless fight. Why did Scott McCloud a comic like this? After hearing people saying Super Boxer "nothing but senseless violence from beginning to end", he thought it sounded interesting only to discover it had "distractions" such as characterization and plot.  He decided to make Destory!! to get it right.
