So as I’m sure you guessed, the Future people have snatched Hal from the past, to save them. This is because they kinda suck at doing anything for themselves.
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.
I was going to say punished, but that’d be hypocritical.
Hey everybody, Site Admin Matt here. Today’s entry, originally posted in July 2007, is–I think–the first to mention the Magical, Mystical, Confusing World of Magnetism. By the way, it’s been nearly 2½ years since the last X-Men post. Weird. From THE X-MEN #18: Um, yeah, that’s not what a “magnetic personality” means, Stan.
I’m going for the obvious here, but…
Aquaman didn’t always have an alter ego, historically. Heck, even after the “reveal” that he was Arthur Curry, he still didn’t have a “secret” ID. Still, he experimented. “Gosh, no-one will EVER guess this!” Best part? They didn’t recognize him.
Batman vs two of his most wily opponents ever! That’s right, in issue 634, Batman’s investigations are hampered by… two meddling old Biddees. I say it again, puns make baby Moses cry!
This wouldn’t make anyone bat an eye (no pun intended) in a modern comic, but it struck me as odd in a code-approved book: Did the writers think the kids just wouldn’t know what it meant? I’m offline for the holiday of Shavuot. Enjoy the auto-posts whilst I enjoy some cheesecake and Blintzes
Did you know that J’onn had a brother? Guess his name. G’wan (no, that isn’t it), guess! groan While this is not, technically, a Martian power, the lameness of the pun fills me with the desire for said shot. Join me, won’t you? And now I have “It’s not Unusual” stuck in my head.
More Malevolent Menaces in the Mighty Marvel Manner, from the Perilous Pen of the Magnanimous Michelinie! They’ll break your bones!
Roy Thomas returned to Thor in the 90s. This was clearly done just to make me hate comics. He brought back the High Evolutionary (“Have you ever read ‘Origin of the Species’Â…on weed?”) and gave us not one, but two groups that he’d mucked about with (eventually three, actually). No, no, I’d say appearances are […]
I forgot to note the issue when I saved the file. Sorry. Um, yeah, that’s not what a “magnetic personality” means, Stan. Saw Transformers yesterday. Not bad. Only two real “What Were They THINKING?!” moments. I’d post them here but don’t know how to make text invisible-but-highlightable.
I really can’t stand puns like this. “Let’s name an alien “xenophobe”! That’d be funny!” Puns really are the lowest form of humor. I say it again, puns are the lowest form of humor. Ever. Spider Robinson is the only person who has ever pulled off a pun without me wanting to hit him. Oh […]
I love this title. Seriously, why don’t we get titles like this anymore? Moving on to the actual story, in Showcase #64 “the Ghost of Ace Chance”, The Spectre is weakened and decides to go around the world, absorbing “good” radiation. It takes him to interesting places. Okay, am I the only one seeing the […]
Ah yes, Dial H for Hero – The Hero Who Could Be You. A really nifty idea. Young readers would send in these really, really pun-tastic identities for the kids to change into, and we’d all play along. Did I mention the puntasticness? It’s forgivable, of course, since these were all kids writing in, of […]
