Batman and Spider-Man Villain Swap!

So, check this out:  I was reading Batman #157, which had the first (and as far as I know, only) appearance of the Jackal.

When you mention the Jackal, comic book nerdlingers think of this guy:

He's a Spider-Man villain from the Bronze Age.  Not a big deal.  We've seen recycled names before, right?

But it doesn't end there.

Look at his origin:

The Jackal was a manifestation of a split personality, you say?  Let's check back with the Spider-Man villain's origin:

Yup.  He became another whole personality.  Thusly (from Amazing Spider-Man #149):

Okay, folks.... 'splain that.

That's right.  It took 40 years to make the connection, but nothing gets past us at CMNS!

And what about this?

Vicki Vale has the least sensitive lips of any human being ever if she can't tell she's kissing a facemask.  That is all.

Okay, that wasn't as big of a deal as the whole "Jackal Origin Swiping" thing, but still.

See you tomorrow!
