Just a quick digression here. As much as I never understood why Popeye and Bluto fought over Olive Oyl (a very unfortunate-looking woman), this makes even less sense to me:
I suppose Popeye and Bluto had been at sea a long time, and they really weren't that attractive themselves, but why do Betty and Veronica bother with Archie? Both Betty and Veronica are pretty and some guys like the girl-next-door (Betty) while others are into those impossible-to-please bitches (Veronica), so I'm sure there are other options. Can anyone tell me what the draw is for Archie?
Anyway. More from All-Star Comics #4:
Well, I'm used to taking direction from God Himself, but I suppose I'll serve as the U.S. Government's lap dog since they asked so nicely. After all, God endorses everything the U.S. Government does. Except gay marriage.
Share a totally nerd moment with me. Did you know the Spectre was called "The Dark Knight" over 40 years before Batman was?
Nice battle cry there, Mr. Angel-of-God's-Wrath: And awaaaaay I go!
It gets worse:
Am I being punked here? Did the Spectre just smile and call someone "Pal"? What's next, eating Beef Jerky and drinking Bud Light?
Oooooooooo..... the Spectre can turn back time? I mean, that makes more sense than Superman doing it in the Superman II movie by spinning the Earth in an opposite rotation (don't get me started), but he's been pretty quiet about that particular power.
Not that I blame him. If I knew someone who could turn back time, I'd be asking for a lot of "do-overs." Mostly to warn myself not to read Flex Mentallo. Yeah, I said it!
See you Monday!
