Here’s a perfect example of why Iris West will always be more awesome than Carol Ferris. Iris: Big deal. I love you for you. Carol: What? No powers!? Sigh. Okay, I’ll settle.
Don’t worry kids, the mean ol’ girls just wanted to yenta with each other.
Yesterday Carol Ferris and Iris West revealed that they’d been sent detailed dossiers on their boyfriends, and knew their secret identities. Who sent this data? We’ll get to that… but first, what do these women do with that information?
I don’t know if it’s collected as one of them, but issue 43 is pretty darn entertaining. I’ll be featuring it for the next few days*. Our story kick off with an insane game changer for Green Lantern…
Issue 11 of the Metal Men recaps issue 10 (where they alloy) but leaves something out.
Magnus is cold I bet they do it in front of her too.
Taken from the “Metal Facts and Fancies” feature that ran in the same issue as our last post: So wait, are the Metal Men all “married” now? Or are they alloyed in sin? (and I bet you thought Copper was a retcon!)
Hal’s not to blame. It’s mind control, you see.
That’s not Carol. That’s not Carol at all
Yesterday we saw that Star Sapphire and Green Lantern were in a bind, visa vi their future as a couple (the future Hal vacillates between wanting and fearing).
It’s my birthday, so I decided to let you guys do the work today. After the break, you’ll see an old Strange Tales story that is so full of gender subtext that it would be a shame to slice it up. So I won’t. Instead, I leave it in your capable hands.
But Clark Kent? Total dick.
The next scene is actually kind of touching, so I’m including it.
In the story, someone other than Platinum gets told “I wish I’d never built you, you defective thing, you.”
The below character has long been the butt of jokes in the comic book industry (indeed, I just did it myself). I think just about everyone has done it, most famously Grant Morrison. Yes, you guessed it…
I’m gonna end this today even if it maims me.
Remember how I was commenting about how some heroes seem to always let their attractive female arch-foes (what is plural of “nemesis” anyway?) escape after hurting people?
Howdy, y’all. Site Admin Matt behind the keyboard again. Typo’s letting me continue the Best Of series on a weekly basis, so every Sunday morning you’ll be finding an awesome post from the past. This week I pulled one from October 2008. I’ve never actually read a Pol Manning issue of Green Lantern (the closest […]
I bet you all think I find Shiera Sanders useless. Well, that’s not true. Sure, I like the tough-as-nails Hawkworld-era Hawkwoman more, and the JLU version of Hawkgirl was my daughter’s favorite when she was five (because “She flies! And she has a hitty thing!” – and thank G-d she didn’t have a lisp), but […]
This may be the longest title I’ve seen in a comic:
Hey everybody, Site Admin Matt here with another great post plucked from the vault. As much as I hate (and I mean HATE) Valentine’s Day, this post from November 2007 just begged to be posted today. The Titans have dirty mouths. All this talk of “love arrows” being in “quivers” made me check for the […]
I don’t know if I can read any more Hop Harrigan stories.
Blooey, of the military team known as Red, White, and Blue is knocked out while guarding a secret weapon. This is because he’s too busy making eyes at a dame.
I enjoy the old Hop Harrigan stories a lot more than I thought I would, even after they shoed in the “Hey kids! Join the Young Aviators” nonsense they seemed to do in every book (Really. “Federal Men” had the Junior G Men, and Hour Man had “Minute Martin and the Minute Men”, and there […]
