In Which Bulletgirl's Incompetence Kills a Civilian. Yeah, You THINK I'm Kidding!

Check out this quite awesome cover from Master Comics #36!

Nothing about the CMJ story grabbed me, but the issue wasn't a total wash.  Check out the bad guy from the Bulletman tale:

Yes, he is The Wizard, a name which surprisingly has never been used by an A-list villain.  I mean, Marvel Comics have that Fantastic Four villain, but he's kind of ... you know... eh.

Anyway, with this Wizard we see lots of Random Ray Usage! (tm!)

Wasn't that the plot of the Lego Batman 2 video game?  It seems like I remember seeing a lot of that.

Hmmmm... homicide by Random Ray Usage (tm!)?  I don't remember seeing a lot of that in the Lego Batman 2 video game.

Anyway, skipping ahead (and as always, I'm doing you a favor), Bulletman figure out how to repel the Wizard's Random Ray Usage! (tm!)

Well, that is until...

Man... she is worse than useless.  Just don't touch stuff, Bulletgirl!  That's all we ask!  You don't have to help, just don't make stuff worse!

Wow.  Okay, so even if Bulletman recovers (which we all know he does), Bulletgirl just caused that taxi driver's death.  True, she didn't pull the trigger, but the fact is that this guy wouldn't have died if Bulletgirl had just stayed out of the way.

But since it's the 1940's, she gets over it before the story is over.  COMICS, kids!  COMICS!

See you tomorrow!

Nowadays, the unfortunate chauffeur's demise would be classified as "collateral damage".

I'd never realized how often Bulletgirl screwed up in those halcyon days.

I do think the Wizard of THE JUSTICE SOCIETY was hot stuff in the 1940s; he just didn't age well.

Here's something I wrote on his organization of the Injustice Society:
