Let's start our week off with some random observations I had whilst reading All-Flash #30:

Even the most casual comic reader knows that a Flash (Golden Age, Barry, Wally, Bart, Max... take your pick) is a dickens to imprison because they can just vibrate out of any shackles for some reason.  I'm sure there's a scientific explanation but please don't try and explain it to me as it will only end in tears for both of us.  Anyway, point is, Flash can get right out of that stuff without having to build a fire with his feet using that very same technique.

Now, at the risk of sounding all "Comic Book Guy" on you, I thought this was something that must have come later.  But check it out.  Same issue:

Okay, so why didn't he do that earlier instead of....

... okay, just never mind.

Moving on...

Jay Garrick... Scientist.

Kids were just a little easier to impress back in the day.

I appreciate that a criminal used to dress up to commit a burglary.  A felony shouldn't be a casual affair.

Jay Garrick... Scientist.

Okay, it happened twice.  Now it's an official CMNS meme!

Jay Garrick... Scientist (tm!)

See you tomorrow!

YES! Remember the Adventure of Superman TV show? ALL criminals wore three piece suits. Even in their hideout, they plotted crimes around the kitchen table or hide out shack wearing formal attire. They might have been evil, but were VERY well dressed. And Jay -- you can animate a snowman, but with the exception of one beloved Christmas TV show, it ALWAYS leads to bad news.
