Android-Cryin', Captial-Punishin' Friday!

Dear Ones,

I'm afraid I'm going to be spotty at best next week. I'm planning on taking some true-blue vacation time, so there will be few (if any) posts next week. I'll try to sneak in a post here and there, but don't count on the regular schedule until Monday, December 1st. For everyone who celebrates it, Happy Thanksgiving!

This always bothered me, from Avengers v1 #58:

Okay, no. Thor doesn't fly himself. He whips the hammer around and throws it while he goes along for the ride. I don't care how enchanted the hammer is, just swinging it around is not going to carry along a whole crowd of people!

And look at the circumference of the hammer's path. Instead of carrying everyone, it looks like it would cripple the Black Panther and Captain America while eviscerating Hawkeye outright. Arrrgh! Too many shenanigans in one panel!

And what about this rather famous panel from the same ish?:

No. They can't. I hate to be a snob, but they can't. If a leak like that is coming out of anything inorganic, it probably needs to be looked at by a certified mechanic.

From World's Finest v1 #8:

Well, isn't she the delicate little flower? I feel faint. AWK!

It's the noise that makes me laugh. It slays me to hear noises come out of people that you wouldn't expect. AWK! is right up there.


Wow, Robin isn't shy about where he stands on capital punishment, is he? Yay! We're going to strap a man to a chair and pump electricity through him! Woo hoo! Someone's gonna die! Yeah!

That's kinda creepy...

Hey! It's time for Fun with Out of Context Dialogue!(tm!):

Oh, my! Be careful who you date, fellas!

See you on December 1st, if not sooner! Have a safe and happy holiday!

Poor Vision. A dove just flew over him.

Safe holiday travels to you, Adam!

Will the turkey be roasted or fried this year?

Geek time: By definition an android is a construct where the human biology is replicated by artificial means. It is not the solid state robotics of Star Trek's Data. Vision's artificial eyes should have artificial tear ducts which would then secrete artificial tears.

I think Superman killed the poor woman.
Sounded like she had a heart attack...

Well, Thor just whipped up a handy transportational vortex with his trusty Uru hammer. ALL Thunder-type Gods can do stuff like that. Simple as pie.

Mmmmmm...pie. Preferably pumpkin.
Have a nice gluttonous Thanksgiving.

Enjoy your time off. Hey, I actually had the paperback of that Vision origin story. They sold those things at the pharmacy (anyone remember pharmacies, pre-Megalo-Mart ?). That paperback also had the Liberators story in it. I'd still kick Roy Thomas downstairs twice for that Liberators crap if I only could.

Oh, and that poor woman fainted because her waist was laced up tighter than poor Snow White at the hands of the Witch Queen. Don't blame Supes. Tsk

The "AWK" is hilarious but what's up with the "kkk!"?

Have a great vacation!

Poor Tim... never suspected a thing. Have a happy Turkey day, ( word to the wise... ) avoid the stuffing at all cost!

I think Vision is crying because his girdle is too small.
