Captain Triumph: Raging Co-Dependent:
Get it? Because Co-Dependents take on everyone's responsibilities and then get really resentful about it? Eh? Eh?
Screw you. I thought it was funny.
I don't know who it was that decided one should fly in a horizontal position, but this is clearly why that rule was made;
If I could fly, I might actually find that less disorienting than trying to lay on my stomach, but once I saw how silly it looked, I'd probably change my mind.
I'm through plowing through Crack Comics, thank goodness. It had a hilarious name, but most of the stories were neither good enough to read on their own, nor bad enough to give me tons of fodder for the blog, so I doubt I'll pick them up again. Although I will miss you most of all, Madam Fatal.
One last thing: Is it just me, or did Captain Triumph look a lot like Iron Monroe?
As I mentioned a long time ago, Roy Thomas meant to use Captain Triumph in the 1980's All-Star Squadron but never got around to it (thank goodness). When Roy revived Iron Monroe for the Young All-Stars spin-off, perhaps he was thinking about Captain Triumph on some level. Since Iron Monroe was a replacement for the Golden Age Superman in the DC Universe, one might wonder why Thomas didn't simply go with Captain Triumph in the Young All-Stars?
Although I'm glad he didn't. Iron Monroe was badass, at least he was in Young All-Stars. Perhaps Captain Triumph could have been given a boost had he also been revived, but I kind of doubt it. The whole "merging with your dead brother when you rub your birthmark" thing is just a little much for me. I still think everyone missed a bet by not bringing back Madam Fatal.
See you tomorrow!
