Spider-Man has that rarest of abilities. “Chest expansion”! I think Powergirl has that one too.
My copy of Documents To Go is refusing to open, so I can’t get to today’s post. I’ll have one later. In other news, I am exhausted. The holiday of Sukkot starts tonight and I was up rather late (especially for me) building my Sukkah. I’d like to give a public thank you to my […]
This is just… wow. Bad pseudo science doesn’t even begin to cover this… The cherry on the sundae is that the Chameleon did much the same thing in issue two!
I have a theory –eyesight works differently in comic books and movies. Why is that? Because, as the below panel will testify, people in comics only seem to have direct line-of-site vision, with no peripheral vision at all. In the real world, that guard would move back two steps and see Doctor Octopus, plain as […]
I love Spider-Sense. It’s such a wonderful, all purpose power with no rules whatsoever. Case in point, from ASM #1? Here we see Spider-Man somehow using his “Spider-Senses” to sense where someone has gone. He’s not using a tracer or anything, he’s just concentrating. I wonder if he can find my car keys for me?
I’ve heard of some odd allergies in my time, but this takes the cake. Is that even possible?
“You know, that Smasher fellow has a lot of style.” “Oh I agree!” No-one throws someone down a hole quite like Smasher. I imagine when your average Shiar underworld thug sees him they scream “No, not the shaft! Anything but that!”
I have to give props to the Beast for having one of the most unique powers ever: Bomb-senseÂ… in his toes.
More wackiness with Magneto’s powers. How exactly is Magneto manipulating ice? I’m very set for content. Barely dipped into X-Men and I still have Amazing Spider-Man and Teen Titans clips to sort through. On top of that Ilve started Detective Comics…. and this is all with a few Wonder Woman and Thor panels left to […]
How? By pulling a random power out of a hat. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… Wonder-Gills! (Note: despite the caption, this wasn’t an established fact. Just something they tacked on in issue 155 and never spoke of again).
This is something that really bugs me: Okay, I thought, as I read issue one, maybe he ordered two specific types of fabrics, each in a set color. I can buy that. Wait no, this one says he can actually “feel” color. Howe the HECK do you feel color? They finally try to explain it […]
More like laughter, actually. I can’t even type his name. I’m laughing too hard. Still, I did love his JLU appearance. That was neat.
Meet the Switch brothers, AC and DC. Good names, yes, but not as good as their invention: Twenty years of research to build the ultimate personal massager! DC’s sure an eager beaver, isn’t he?
Yes, yes they do! Heâ€™s on fire underwater. I love it.
Okay, so even if the Silver Surfer’s whole “I’m a guy on a surfboard” thing is, if you think about it too much, a bit lame, it works right? This guy, not so much: RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! It’s the Goalie of Doom!
#1 Super-telepathy: I was tempted to just trim it so all you saw was Superman thinking “take-it-off”, but that would have been unfair. #2…This May Be The Best Power Ever! Caller ID Vision! COOL! Sorry for the delay. This is MacQ posting on Typo’s behalf and running late as usual.
Apparently, Superman’s golden-age characters included shape-shifting: This happens a bunch of time, but this is the best example. Why? Because apparently his clothing can shape-shift too. <a href=”http://www.statcounter.com/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://c10.statcounter.com/counter.php?sc_project=1080285&java=0&security=7a6d50e7&invisible=1″ alt=”site stats” border=”0″></a>
Since my earlier post was not 100 percent on target, here’s a “bonus” I love when Superman uses his “X-Ray” vision in bizarre ways. This time, we see him using it for some kind of mechanical telepathy.
I give you one of the original Masters of Evil and arch-foe of the Invincible Iron Man, The Melter. Yes, run! Run from The Melter, the man with the corrosive pee!
