Pants-Optional, Bird-Calling, Singin'-and-Shootin' Thursday!

From All-Star Comics #10:

The Justice Society goes into the distant future, where one startling fact is uncovered:


Hawkman apparently quits wearing pants.

What is it about future fashions that make us not want to wear pants? Is it really good climate control, or what?

Oh, and see Superman and Batman and Flash and Green Lantern on the cover? Still nowhere inside, but buy it anyway, kids!



As much as I enjoy the Atom, I don't think you could teach him Pig Latin, much less "bird language." For some reason, I readily accepted that Hawkman could talk to birds, even though there was no logical reason for that. But being able to teach the bird language to others? Shenanigans!

From All-Star #11. The Justice Society, in response to the Pearl Harbor bombing and the United States' subsequent entry into WWII, becomes The Justice Batallion.

Sandman's new costume totally sucked, although his singing voice got better without the gas mask:


However:

That notwithstanding, you still wouldn't cross swords with the Sandman, because he would jack you up:


That's right, I'm wearing a yellow-and-purple outfit. Got a problem with that? Take it up to the Complaint Department, and by Complaint Department, I mean large-caliber gunfire upside yo' head!

Okay, I don't really understand the meme thing, but here are my favorite blog posts. I couldn't settle on just one:

This one or this one or this one or this one or this one.


Enjoy! See you tomorrow!

Sandman's singing voice may have gotten better but his racism still sucks.

Oh, Hawkman, Hawkman, Hawkman ... No pants AND a mace? What would Freud say?

All truly inspired choices, Adam.

What IS it about Hawkman? You'd think that running around all bare-chested and pantsless, he'd be a woman's dream, but he always looks kind've hairy and smelly.

I'm with Evil Twin. That panel is pure gold. I'm left without anything clever to say.

SallyP, have you ever been up close to a hawk? They're a bit dirty and usually smell like whatever they just killed. I can only assume Hawkman would smell like dead voles all the time.

Bleh!
