This would have been up earlier, but my internet connection has been dodgy today.

Today we celebrate our favourite comic book villains, (and I blather on about my favourite). What makes a great villain? Depends on the story, I suppose. Different kinds of stories need different kinds of evil-doers. But the basics: clarity of purpose, a distinct voice, an equally great nemesis. All of these are more important than a cool name or costume. (Where would Dr. Doom be otherwise, amirite?) There are a ridiculous number of great and memorable villains in comics, and if you're having trouble figuring out yours, IGN has got a top 100 for you here.

I grew up watching X-Men and Batman TAS and my best-of list is heavily populated by villains I first encountered in those series: Poison Ivy, Magneto, Mr. Sinster, the Joker. But my most enduring villainous love, has got to be Lex Luthor. (So unusual, I know. XD)

I actually first met him through the Superman comics my neighbor collected. I bought the X-books, he bought the Superman and Bat-books, and we traded on Thursdays. I guess I saw something in those comics (awful though many of them were!), because after that I was all over the Superman cartoon and Lois & Clark, and savoring every Lex episode. By the time Justice League and Smallville came around, I was an accept-no-substitutes Lex Luthor stan.

So what's so great about Lex Luthor? Well, a couple of things imho. Read more... )


So who are your favourite villains?

[personal profile] sailorlibra requested Bronze Age Lois Lane. Here are 6 and a half pages from a 20-page story, "The Day Lois Lane Walked All Over Superman," from Superman Family #183, May-June 1977. It's also the story that gives us a rather famous image, one that I considered using as the preview image, but in the end I couldn't resist a lovely image from the Neal Adams-drawn cover, especially since it encapsulates part of the story I had to cut:


I-I'll do anything, Lois! J-just don't hurt me... )
Whatta ya think, gang? Cracky enough for ya?

Here's a collection of bits of comics that make me happy (Blue Beetle, War at Ellsmere, Superdictionary, and good ol' Birds of Prey).



Enjoy! )

To celebrate buying a new printer/scanner (not to mention lugging it three miles home on foot), I bring you scans from the Super-Dictionary!

I'm here to tell you what I know about a certain Warner Educational Services book, published in 1978 by Holt, Rinehart and Winston.

We all know and love the Superdictionary, our beloved Cracktionary. But how much about it do we really know? In this post I attempt to gather some information on this delightful tome and its contents (though it will in no way be complete, as we all know it is mysterious and infinite in its crackiness).



Come and join me after the cut, and learn a bit about our favourite silly educational book!

[Warning: This post is very image-heavy. This post contains many images. There are so many pictures in this post, it may feel like heavy work for your dial-up connection to load them all. Load faster, dial-up!]

First of all, some reminders about posting:

  • Remember to keep making sure that any images outside of an LJ-cut are 300x400 pixels or less, so just remember to either check your sizes or use our handy-dandy LJ-cut code as provided in the posting guidelines. (Images outside of the cut should also be free of spoilers and should be Safe For Work, while we're at it.)

  • Another thing I'd like to remind everyone about is "NSFW" posts. "Not Safe For Work" means just that, something that might be inappropriate or questionable for viewing in the work place. Please remember that this does not just apply to porn or nudity, but extreme violence and gore as well. NSFW posts should be friendslocked, tagged, and say somewhere either in the post title or above the LJ-cut that it is NSFW, as people watching the group on the feeds can't see cut text.

  • As always, I encourage you to read the posting guidelines again if you need a refresher.


  • We've also got an announcement to make, as some changes are a-foot!

    Long story short, my life and schedule are changing a bit, meaning I won't have the time/attention to devote to being a moderator here at scans_daily anymore. Thus, I am stepping down.

    However, not only do you still have our other lovely and hard-working mods, we now have an awesome new moderator stepping up! Please join me in welcoming our newest evil overlord scans_daily mod, [insanejournal.com profile] sandoz_iscariot!

    And since I'm no longer a mod, I'd better add a scan for legality:

    Be good, stay cool, say no to drugs, stay in school, look both ways before you cross the street, stay alert, stay safe, and don't do anything Batman wouldn't do! =) ♥
