Grenade-Tipped Shaft Thursday!
This is why Superman doesn't have a kid sidekick. Say, Robin, I know it's one of the flimsiest disguises ever, but when I'm wearing glasses, do you think you could hold off calling me "Superman" in public? Hmmmmmm? That was a fun one from Robert Giles! Thanks, Robert!
As I've said before, Stan Lee is more of an idea man. Dialog is not so much his thing. Check out this classic from All-Winners #1:
Wow. Who needs art when you have that kind of narrative? Paints such a vivid picture in my brain, it does! Although I have to give this disclaimer: Children, if an adult ever really talks to you in this fashion, run to your parents as fast as your legs will carry you.
And hey! It's time for Fun with Out of Context Dialog! (tm!):
Normally, I'd think the guy is just bragging, but if your shaft is actually grenade-tipped, you are already capable of things I can't imagine.
See you tomorrow!
