Randomness Week - Starman

If we're doing random dialogue week, props have gotta be given to Starman of the current Justice Society title. With a mix of a time-traveler's future knowledge, the inappropriate timing of the mentally ill, and word salad phrasing, he can be a joy to read.

Here are two pages from Justice Society of America #2. Context: Mr. America's dead body has just crashed through the skylight and landed on the JSA conference table in the middle of a meeting; the JSA does not at this point know very much about its new Starman.

It's worth noting that while Starman's riddle to Power Girl is out of place here, it's not inaccurate - she goes dimension-bopping courtesy of Gog in the JSA Annual, which I thought was posted here but I can't find via the tags. :\

Just goes to show, "random" does not necessarily equal "stupid."
