You say your kid has low self esteem? He can't swing a bat or catch a football to save his life? He's not really a leader, has no musical talent, and can barely find his own way home from school?
Take heart, oh parents of loser kids everywhere! There's still one more thing your worthless, talentless child might actually pull off:
Yup. He might become Marble King of the neighborhood! And even if he doesn't get it legit, you can always make that stupid crown out of construction paper and see if he develops track skills running from jealous neighborhood kids a la Forrest Gump.
What do chicks do when we aren't around? Gloat about evil things they've done to men:
See? I knew it! Adventure Comics #410 wasn't afraid to tell the truth!
Superboy and the LSH v1 #197 was the beginning of some awesome stories from Bates, Cockrum, Grell and Shooter. I defy you to find any comics from the early 70's that hold up as well as Superboy and the LSH up through around #250. These are stories and art that hold up against anything I've ever seen before or since.
#197 finally gave us a Timber Wolf to be proud of. He dropped the porn star / motorcycle cop moustache and started wearing that "Flock of Seagulls" haircut (years before Flock of Seagulls, might I add) to go with his more bestial nature:
Timber Wolf's haircut, of course, would be ripped off years later by Wolverine, and it was painfully obvious during his brief "Timber Wolf ripoff" look:
It should be noted that, unlike Wolverine, Timber Wolf didn't need any pansy-ass healing factor or metal claws. All Timber Wolf needed was his unlimited supply of Asswhoop.
Oh, my! Check out Superboy & LSH v1 #199!:
You see it, don't you? It isn't just me, is it?
There's nothing I can take out of context to make that scene more suggestive. I mean, nothing! The dialogue, Superboy's pose, Brainiac 5's pose.... you have to see that!
Come on! The image aside, the story is called "The Gun that Mastered Men!" There's no way this isn't intentional!
You see what I'm getting at, don't you? It can't just be me.
See you Monday!
