Just to torture myself, I decide to check out Action Comics #219:
These days, we'd call Supes "thrifty," but apparently hanging onto your money was a terrible thing to do back in the day.
Anyway, after much ballyhoo (SPOILER ALERT), we learn why Supes was amassing a big stash of loot:
Get it? He was trying to bring a crook out of hiding by tempting him with a super-sized treasure trove. Pretty good plot. I enjoyed it just as much when Supes did the exact same thing in Action Comics #176. I realize that they probably didn't think that they'd have the same readers in 40 issues, but that's pretty dang lazy. Then again, there's only so much you can do with a protagonist that powerful.
Moving onto Green Lantern #32, we see yet another lowlight in the already-pitiful history of the Golden Age Green Lantern.
I give you, Alan getting clobbered by...
.... The Juggler:
Yes. The Juggler. The man has a ring that can literally create a Sherman tank, and he was taken to Whippedville by a man with even less threatening than Batroc the Leaper.
And, of course, he ends up in a slot machine deathtrap:
Yeah! SLOT MACHINE DEATHTRAP!
Enough of that. Time for a CMNS Moment... of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)
You certainly are!
This has been a CMNS Moment... of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)
See you tomorrow!
