"The whole concept of fight scenes in superhero comics has become pretty fuckin’ impotent as a device to propel or advance a story. For me, it’s because the stakes involved are usually either dramatically nonexistent or so esoteric that they end up meaning nothing to the reader because they can’t relate to the overriding conflict involved (Iron Man fights Captain America. The Marvel Universe fights Skrulls. Avengers fight X-Men. The Flash fights an Elseworlds reality. The DC Universe fights its own continuity. Blah, blah, fuckin’-blah… another verse, same as the first)." -- Joe Casey

Rendering " Panel Number Whatever: They cross the road.. " as Abbey Road has to be at least as tempting as turning " exterior view of a corner diner " into Nighthawks.

Heroville citizens: you wouldn't like the real world, guys. Enjoy your sanctuary.

So, Dr. Camel has mind control technology that's kept anyone from so much as sneaking inside the boarded up "Adult Fun" shop since the 1950s? No one wants a little forbidden thrill? No hormonal teenagers, or younger kids just curious about a vacant building? How did Superman miss the Stepford Wives thought police aspect of this place?

Surely its a reference to the typical morality of old fashioned superheroes?

So, how long before the place was nuked "in the name of national security"?
