Could this cover be true?
Here’s one that I’ve seen scores of times, and always bugs me.
People are not straw and doors are not trees.
Apparently, in the DCU, Iron is not made of actual iron.
In case you think it’s just Silver Age writers who lack a basic understanding of the properties of stars, witness as Ted Knight’s Gravity Rod runs out of steam…
So Hal decides to take out Evil Star by blotting out the stars Since it’s still light out, that means the sun is out. Which means that Evil Star should be Just Fine.
Evil Star strips Hal’s powers again, and Hal is forced to face the supervillian without powers.
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).
Here’s a question about our old friend, electricity.
Here’s some great bad science…
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.
The Metal Men are attacked, of course. And they sink. Who will save Doc?! (Hey you, in the back. Yeah you. I heard you say “Why?”. Behave)
Hey, remember those two story lines I’ve shown where the Metal Men forget they can shape shift? In this story they remember. They also fail basic science, though.
Doc’s free of that simpering, mewling, Platinum! He’s free to do as he pleases with impunity! Hurrah. Right?
So Doc has decided to fiddle with Platinum again… this is going to be another full pager, actually. Just too good…
I have a friend named Jim who teaches archery. Archers in comics are rarely shown doing, well, anything right. It’s not something I really notice, but I do get why it bugs him. We all have that one thing that takes away our suspension of disbelief. If I were an archer, I’m sure the average […]
These are the panels that made me realize just how much I hated this story.
On the way to the police station, Hal and Barry learn that they’re not “powerless” but have instead swapped powers (something you’d think would have come up when they were beating on thugs)
If you thought Major Disaster’s plan was convoluted before…
Just so much wrong here
A question about the interactions of Liquid Oxygen and metals:
Doc decides the best way to fix the Metal Men is to destroy them. DO NOT QUESTION THE MAGNUS BRAIN!
Issue 11 of the Metal Men recaps issue 10 (where they alloy) but leaves something out.
It seems I never finished writing about Metal Men #6. How odd. When we last left Doc, he had been turned into a “Robot” by Cosmic Rays
