Bleeding Cool has a great article on some really, really bad science in this week’s Thor. Yes, science. In Thor. Really. Best bit? They close with one of the images clipped by this blog. Thousands of eyes, seeing the image I picked out. I miss that.
Oh Colossus…. Whales breath fine on land, thanks. What they can’t do is eat, stand the sun, etc. Not fully back, but that was too weak to let slide.
In Superman #709, the Flash has become a menace. How? “Hey, this strange thing in the bottom of a crater looks like a hat. I think I’ll put it on!” Because, as always in comic books, what is the worst that can happen?
Unknown fact about magnetism, folks. It is apparently yellow. Bonus: the next panel following: That is so very, very kinky.
Taken from a page of issue 60… Oh yeah, there’s the whole “how did getting the ability to see give the Lamplighter the ability to shapeshift”, but I noticed something else. It took the powers a half hour to wear off… wow, Gloria must have really been concentrating on Ted. Please tell me women really […]
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.
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 […]
Oh for the days when Green Arrow had any imaginable gadget in his quiver… An atomic bomb arrow? Indoors, no less? Why would you even have that? How are you guys liking the one post a day format?
This page is already exposition heavy, but I love the last panel. Because you know, it’s not like he has a magic ring that lets him do whatever he wants, and that we just saw make a mental radio last issue. Also? Gotta love that “apparently”. What the heck, editor? Are you uncertain? Sorry to […]
You know the one… “What if Hal creates a telepathic connection with Charley Vickers?” “No, that’s lame.” “What if we call it a magnetic connection?” “SOLD!”
So why did Baron Tyrano, the Menace in the Iron Lung (really), split Hal in two? First off… finding a dead body might have brought the police into it? How about shooting off “missile creatures” or jumping Hal Jordan in broad daylight on a busy street? Secondly, if the Baron just wanted Hal because he […]
Have I mentioned how much I love the Silver Age’s idea of science? Want an explanation? Too bad! Instead you get this! Wha..huh… how does that even…
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 […]
“Hey Doc, there’s a tree in the road.” “Let’s drive into it and see what happens!” And thus did Doc Magnus invent Crash Test Dummies.
The Flash is fast. Really fast. It’s hard to pull that off, in comics, I get it. Realistically (oh what a dirty word) anyone engaging in a fist or gunfight with him should be out cold before they pull the trigger. You really have to suspend disbelief to enjoy it. And then moments like this […]
Ted Knight hates being baffled. It’s like bad science bingo – magnetism and vibrations, coming together to create lovely nonsense.
The Spectre needs to ditch “Percival Pop, Super Cop”, his newly introduced (at the time) comic relief sidekick. So he puts him safely out of the way. Aside from the insane issues of scale, or the fact that Percival is breathing in outer space, or that the Spectre seems to be able to travel millions […]
I give Mercury some credit – when he sees that he’s chased Tim away, he shows regret: Typical MM double standard in action. Mercury freaks out, and that’s okay, but if Paltinum so much as bats an eyelash, she’s defective.
The Metal Men react to Tin’s creation: How? How can anyone tell? The whole thing with robots and gender is just so messed up…
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.
Chemo is one of the neatest villains, visually. For those unfamiliar with the character, he’s a sentient chemical waste container. You see, he was created when a scientist kept dumping unused chemicals in this big plastic bin… that he’d just happened to make in the shape of a person.
Hal eventually gets to go home, wakes up with no memory of the future (thank goodness for Space Roofies) and goes after Polaris for “killing” him.
So with a dead GL on their hands, the Future People simply reset their time machine for another date, right?
That said, I’m sure regular readers of this blog and GL fans in general can guess where Hal’s body went off to… Yes, the future! home of the least subtle pathogens ever!
