You Got Served! Tuesday!

You may recall that the other day, I did a post wherein we looked at the Elongated man having two right hands, and that post linked to a shot where the same thing was done with Mr. Fantastic.  And we were sitting there all smug about how this sort of silly mistake would only happen in old comics.

Ladies and gentlemen, Exhibit "A":

Yes, in the very recent X-Men: First Class mini, we see Machine Man with two left hands, and the hands got so mixed up so often in the previous issue that I would have had Childhood Pal Scotty warning me I had crossed the line of "Fair Use," because I would have rerun dang near the whole issue.

This is the way my life works: I notice something, then I start seeing it everywhere.  It's dang creepy.

Know what isn't creepy?  Kraven.

I know he's supposed to be all tough and everything, but when I see all those leopard prints, it just makes me think of this:
Kraven the Hunter: A costume so ridiculous, I've made fun of it twice already.

Hey!  It's time for a Moment of Comic-Book Greatness! (tm!):

Mary Jane and Gwen serve each other in a dance off in Amazing Spider-Man #47!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: When you can't hear the music, watching someone dance is really awkward.

See you tomorrow!

Is "give out the 'burgers" a euphemism? Cause if it is this could be the greatest party EVER!

I don't think I'll ever get over the fact they had Gwen Stacy win the "dance-off" with Mary Jane. Gwen could dance better than MJ? Gaah! Never!

Too bad we never saw a DC/Marvel "Kraven vs. The Creeper" crossover showdown for the title of Most Fabulous Costume.

Is "hairiest cloak" a euphemism? Cause if it is, I don't wanna know. :-/

"Wow-eeee! If we could package that, we'd be rich!"

Are they talking about pimping out Gwen Stacy? Because that's what I'm hearing.

When I finally read stuff from this era of Spider-Man, I found it hilarious that Gwen was slightly bitchy at this point, only becoming the stereotyped too-good-and-innocent-to-be-true character everyone remembers once her hairstyle is changed to bangs.
