I have to say, the cancellation of Mister Terrific is not coming as a shock. I always enjoyed Michael Holt in the JSA, and was really looking forward to this series. Alas, he went from being the quietly badass third smartest man in the world to a guy who spouted lines like this: I have […]
Who is the Lamplighter, you ask? Good question. Let’s look at his origin! Also, yet another example of someone who could have been insanely rich just by using the thing that gave him his powers.
Someone needs to end our long national nightmare of writers making puns of alien names. Now you’re making me hate candy, comic books! Oh this is annoying… a bunch of my images are zero sized files. Ah well, Moving on.
In case you thought the Batman can do ANYTHING concept was new… Oh yes, your simple scientist brain, trained policeman mind, and forensic scientist training is nothing compared to that of Batman! For Einstein’s sake, Atom, show some pride. You invented a fricking shrink ray.
I cheated by revealing that it was Major Disaster, but that’s because I wanted you to see that first. See, in Issue #57, Hal gets too good at the whole “insurance claim” thing. I guess in the DCU meteor insurance is needed, but that thing is moving so slow that he could have gotten out […]
Way back in February of 2011, I covered a train wreck of a story where then-new bad guy Major Disaster got his hands on Pieface’s scrapbook. Instead of using it to blackmail Green Lantern and the Flash, he leaked their IDs to Carol and Iris and Hilarity Ensued. He eventually did himself in. Or… did […]
Nameless is feeling down (imagine that) so Platinum takes her to the salon. Kinda. I think she’d get more attention from Tin with a new accelerator, if you know what I mean. And if you do, clue me in.
Geeze. It hits me – just about all the Metal Men’s robot enemies seem to be motivated by having the hots for them or develop said hots for one of them. The Missile Men, the Space Amazon, the Living Buoy., the Robot from B.O.L.T.S., etc. Now we have not just the Black Widow Spider from […]
Because heaven for-fend they be portrayed as equals.
Before there was J’onn, DC had a serial called Paul Kirk, Manhunter. He’d go on to become an actual costumed hero (and DC would later buy the rights to another character of that name too). Here we see an early Paul Kirk story where he is more “Paul Kirk, Entrapment Enabler” than Manhunter” “And that, […]
This early GL comic shows as much understanding of the word “ironic” as your average mid-90s musician. In our story, Green Lantern Alan Scott is fighting a Napolean of crime- not any mere Moriarty rip-off, this guy’s name is actually Bonaparte – Nick Bonaparte. He ends up blowing himself up, saving the taxpayers the expense. […]
Long time fans of the Metal Men absolutely know where this post is going. For the uninitiated, in issue #13, we find a lonely Tin wandering the streets.
The general public has gone mad with Metal Men Hate, and the team decides to break up. Platinum gives us this bon mot:
Or even if you don’t ask…
So the Bottler snatches Titus Jordan’s stamps. HOW EVIL CAN YOU GET? Hal mops the floor with the Bottler and we get on to the reveal. Yes, that’s right. The Bottler Did it.
Jim has figured out what Sue and his Uncle are up to.
…The Jordan family! That’s right, I found time to post today. You lucky, lucky people.
Here’s one that I’ve seen scores of times, and always bugs me.
I see why writers eventually went with the “addicted to Evil and will do anything for a fix, as long as it is…Evil” motivation for Evil Star. Some of his plans are just wacky, even for the Silver Age. See, that’s not Evil Star on Earth. That’s just a projection. The real Evil Star is […]
I actually exclaimed the title of today’s post out loud when I read the below (much to the annoyance of my fellow commuters on the 5:50 AM bus).
Sometimes I forget just how much our classic DC heroes liked their spanking… Seven Soldier of Spanking! Featuring Sir Justin, the Spanking Knight! Seriously, feels like the only characters more into spanking than DC/National were Fawcette, and we all know how that ended, don’t we class? Sorry about the missed post yesterday
I can’t get over how one issue of Metal Men can yield so many posts… Neptune sends a giant crab to attack the Metal Men. Yes, a giant crab.
First it was the Missel Man-Tina, then Crazy Space Queen Robot and Tin. Now yet again our metallic misfits are assailed by a mysterious robot that somehow has a gender and wants to get all alloyed.
Doc’s free of that simpering, mewling, Platinum! He’s free to do as he pleases with impunity! Hurrah. Right?
