What Did You Do in the War? Monday!

The Iron Man movie? Rocked. But you probably already knew that.

Look out! It's All-Star Comics #12!:

Whoops! Got to watch the bleach when you're washing colors there, Atom. As it is, now you look like you just got back from a KKK meeting.

Okay, you've got access to a woman who can arm wrestle Superman, and you've got her taking the minutes at meetings? Why not have her do the team's laundry while you're at it? The Atom could certainly use the help.

That's right.... you just sit there and look wistful while we go fight. And I think the Atom left some laundry for you to do. You don't mind, do ya, Sweetcakes?

I've been meaning to ask this for some time, but what is with Hawkman's wings? Those look like two giant hairballs on his back. Are those supposed to be feathers? I'm just not seeing it.

Remember, kids.... mocking people because of their skin color is wrong, unless you are really cheezed off at them. Maybe the Atom did just get back from a KKK meeting.

You know, if some guy was leaning over me with that look in his eye, I'd be very worried as to what was "the best yet to come."

See? I'd say start running in the opposite direction, Professor!

Ugh! Isn't this the 20th Century? Ugh!

Ugh! Yes, it be! Ugh!

Ugh! Why do we still speak this way? Ugh!

Ugh! Could be worse! We could be Japanese! Ugh!


Oh, man. This is just getting worse. We'll start over tomorrow!

Psst: I know it's a secret, but actually, comics were not drawn very well back then.

Don't tell nobody.

I'm pretty sure back then, his "wings" were really just a cloak of the Seventh Metal. Or something.

Leave Wonder-frickin'-Woman at home and take JOHNNY THUNDER along? Say, you'd think they would have been better off leaving him to check the mail and answer the phones.

That is a pretty awesome "Hawkman descends on Bavaria" image, BTW.

And who the hell is he calling "yellow"? Everybody seems to be the same shade of Crayola Peach to me. In fact, the only yellow I see in that image is on Doofus McBirdface's chest and head. And possibly the walls.

Hairballs? Yeah.. I see it. Although, the second pic looks more like an open garbage bag attached to his back to me.

LOL @ "I feel a strange sensation" that could totally end with... " my pants." Everything about that just fits.

I...just...words fail me.

I remember that in the first Hawkman story Hawkman said that his wings "repel electricity,which is the basis of the force of gravity".
That bugs me to no end! Gravity and electro-magnetism are entirely different forces!
Oh,wait,I just revealed the extent of my dweebishness.

Hawkman is just one more example of why you should never say "Don't get mad -- use Glad" to an alien.
