Nice try, DC.
You remember in the 90's, when they kept trying to convince us Tea Leoni was this incredibly sexy and hilarious lady? I mean, they tried sitcom after sitcom, re-tooling sitcoms, movies, etc., and they just couldn't trick us into thinking she had star quality (because she didn't). The same goes with Starman here.
Look at him. He's got the Big Two elevating him, letting you know that even they submit to his sheer awesomeness. He's so popular, poor Hawkman can't even find a place to land. That's how awesome this guy was supposed to be.
Boy, did he suck. Of course, with that kind of build-up, I was rooting for it to fail. Beloved says I tend to do that when I feel like Madison Avenue is trying to cram something down my throat.
Whatever. Kill him, Spectre! Unleash the Holy Judgment upon the infidel, banish him into the Hall of Shame where he belongs, and make way for Jack Knight!
I've cut Allergy a lot of slack, but this is ridiculous. Are there no mirrors in Allergy's house? It seems to me like Allergy might want to make any friend he can at that age, because by the time he hits high school, guys like Bob are going to be sticking his cowlicked, short-pants-and-oversized-bowtie-wearing, bucktoothed head in a flushing toilet.
Yeah, Ollie, what makes that golden shaft of yours stay in place? Or should I ask Dinah?
Eh, we all know the answer - insert your favorite Viagra joke in the comments!
