Being Superman's Pal Means You Get Your Own Monogrammed Contingency Plan!

Just for something new, I checked out Crash Comics #2, starring Strongman.  Here's what I've learned about my first reading of a Strongman story:


He likes to wander around and look for problems.


He's supposedly very strong.  So, I'll accept the notion that he jump really high.

But then we have this:


We have the man breaking down a brick wall with his fists.

So, you ask yourself, what is his origin?  Is he an alien?  Was he exposed to radiation?  Has he taken some sort of medication?  What gives him such might power?

Yoga.

I kid you not.

Yoga.

Soooooooooo.... moving on.  Let's try and swallow that bit of information with some Fun with Out of Context Dialogue! (tm!):


times two!:



Well... that's not an appropriate thing for a girl to ask her father, but who am I to judge?

From Robert Gillis, we bring you some Wait.... what? (tm!): 


Wait... what?

I don't even want to know what Plans "L" and "J" are.  I quit reading after, "You called me Editor Perry White instead of just plain Perry White."

Thanks, Robert!

See you tomorrow!

That is AWESOME. I need to make all sorts of nonsense "plans" that involve adding and subtracting titles to people in my everyday life.

"Wait, you forgot to put a 'mister' in front of my moniker... that means I have to do a handstand and attempt to shake people's hands with my feet. Oh darn, I forgot to bring my special pink socks along with me today..."

To be fair, the guy has no built up infrastructure to inform him when a crime is being committed. He would have to do something like simply wander around bad neighborhoods looking for trouble. Hell Daredevil, and Spider-Man and even Batman do that. As far as yoga giving him powers, well I guess they weren't going the comedy route like Flex Mentallo, but it is as good as many of the origins that I have heard, such as just being born that way, an injection of mongoose blood, being caught in a nuclear explosion, etc.

Oh, Marv... we're not through with Strongman and the powers yoga apparently will give you. :-)
