Extra Absorbent Wednesday!

Although he only pops up every so often, the Absorbing Man rules. I'm not sure whether he or the similarly-powered Amazing Man in DC came first, but this Marvel bad guy simply rocked. He was mean, tough, had an awesome power, and he carried around a big ball and chain. We need more guys like that.

That being said, check out how the Beast handles him:


Like I've said many times before, the Beast didn't get the respect he deserved in the Avengers, but he kept swinging and kept a good attitude.

Not that he always succeeded:


Okay, but look at Captain America butting in. Keep in mind that the guy's name is "The Absorbing Man." That gives you a pretty good idea of what his powers are, even if he hadn't already been known by the Avengers (which he was). So, throwing something made of an invulnerable substance right at the guy probably isn't the greatest strategy.

Case in point:


See what I mean? But not once does anyone call Cap a dumbass, which he clearly was. I hear all the time about what a master strategist Cap is, and all I have to do is break out this issue and say, "Exhibit A."

And it's time for Fun with Out of Context Dialogue!(TM!):



See you tomorrow!

I'm hoping you won't mind our borrowing one of your images at this post, which has a link to your post.

That's at a company blog that I edit. I'd be happy to add a credit line that says "Image courtesy of Comics Make No Sense," with another link to your blog URL.

But if you object, I'll remove the image at once. Thanks for considering it.

I've been reading through your backblog and greatly enjoying it. It seems to me that several Marvel B- and C-listers, like the Absorbing Man and Graviton ought to be bigger threats. I used to have the issue where the Absorbing Man absorbed Quasar's (Wendell Vaughn's) quantum bands.

Hi I'd like to thank you for such a great made forum!
thought this is a nice way to introduce myself!
When trying to produce property it is usually a clever conclusion to start a savings or investing course of action as soon in life as imaginable. But don't worry if you have not begun saving your assets until later on in life. With the help of hard work, that is looking up on the best investment vehicles for your cash you can slowly but surely increase your property so that it extends to a large amount by the period you want to retire. Contemplate all of the applicable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A researched and diversified portfolio of investments in a wide range of asset classes may help your money increase through the years.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
