Busy Hands Thursday!


Just gonna dump that crumbling building into the ocean, you say?

Superboy - eco warrior. And king-size douche.

Normally, I'd be telling Roy to watch what his left hand is doing, but I really don't think it's his fault. No, I blame the one who designed the Arrowcar so that both occupants practically had to wear condoms to safely ride at the same time, Oliver!

This is what I never get about Superham. A punk is destroying your prize possession? Can't you lift Manhattan Island with one hand? Why are you just standing there like a wussy?

Oh, no! That bully is destroying my property, and I'm only the most powerful creature on the planet. What to do, what to do?

Can somebody please enlighten me about something that has been bothering me for some time. Comic book physics: How can one lift a car by its bumper; wouldn't the bumper just rip off? And lifting that section of the building by a single girder? That'd snap off in a jiffy. And for those who say it's ironic that I ask these questions, but accept that there are superheroes in the world -- I get it!

It's not just that he can lift the whole building with two hands, but that he's lifting in one piece a building that's "too flimsy" to remain standing.

the sad thing is, I readily accept that sort of thing without thinking twice.... this is what happens when you start reading comics at an early age.

I'll triple your comments, Adam.

*Sigh*

I take these things completely at face value, too.

ooooo...deja vu all over again, Adam...

I wonder about how Superboy ever managed to preserve any semblance of a secret identity when he stores a trophy clock presented to him as Superboy next to a picture of Ma and Pa Kent (at home, presume).

Well Aquaman must be pleased as punch that Superboy is dumping stuff in the ocean again.

And exactly HOW do Speedy and Green Arrow manage to keep their hats on?

I think that's the excuse I'm going to use the next time I get caught busting up somebody's stuff.

"I'm from the future. Yeah, that's it. Trust me, I'm doing you a favor. You'll thank me in twenty years."

Eventually they retconned Superman's strength to be telekinetic in nature, enabling him to do stuff like that...
