Because we need funny.

Sorry Hal, your antics generally people to have this reaction, whether you want them too or not.

...Ask a stupid question.

Ah, the explanation for Bruce's laughter is surprisingly obvious.

Stop being creepy guys!

Black Canary: As clumsy in the Superdictionary as she was in the series she shared with Ollie!

Dammit Ollie, what did you do now?

Heheheh, somehow, knowing this comes from the kind of grim Mike Grell run makes this all the funnier.

...The guy turned a woman into a sentient dress pattern, I think this calls for more than just giving him pastry Steve...

Holy crap, Hulk just flat out murdered those guys!

Thor vs. the Space Hillybillies... you know, like regular hillbillies, but from space!

Can't decide whether this is more or less horrifying than the above sweatshop one...

This raises so many questions...

Huh, it occurs to me that supervillain crime rates must be skyrocketing now that Hostess has gone bust...

Since when does transforming someone against their will into a dress pattern count as a "small crime?"

And I do like how the other lady sneaks up on Taylor with a fruit pie, rather than something ot brain him with.

Mr. Taylor is a "job creator" and thus should be exempted from laws preventing the mistreatment/horrific transformation of his employees.

Technically speaking, I'm pretty sure that there isn't any law against turning somebody into a dress.

Date: 2012-12-19 06:55 am (UTC)
From: [personal profile] silicondream
It would almost certainly count as battery in a US jurisdiction; that crime also covers nonconsensual medical operations, intentionally infecting someone with a disease, and pretty much any sort of messing with their body without their permission. It'd probably also count as false imprisonment, assuming living dress patterns can't move.

I'd love a back-up feature written by those lovely bloggers (and professional lawyers) where cliched villains try and maniacally laugh there way out of serious repercussions (jail time, forced removal of powers, execution) only for the judicial system to sternly tell them no, they're getting the book thrown at them.

Course, as Dan Slott's She-Hulk run showed us, an effectual comic book legal system would also open up all kinds of legitimate civil suits and counter-suits.

Well, it's a very poor dress pattern unless you're in the market for an outfit with matching gloves, socks, and an authentic "Screaming In Horror" full-face balaclava.

I think it's a ray gun for turning people INTO mummies.

Hence it's failure to work on someone who's a mummy already.

From: [personal profile] icon_uk
Bertie would be much more likely to refer to his "Mater" and "Pater" rather than Mummy and Daddy, though as his parents are deceased before the first Jeeves story, they don't really get mentioned (Aside from explaining that he has the middle name Wilberforce because it's a horse that his father won money on the day before Bertie was born)

Cap: "Simon, you made the pants too long."

Through my SUPERPOWER OF MUSIC GEEK, I know what this refers to. Hark to the tale:

Around 1932, there was a mournful ballad called "Lord, You Made The Night Too Long" that became popular with the crooner set. Here's the earliest recording I could find (NSFW, pin-up girls in varying levels of undress).

The next year, a dude named Joe Lewis wrote a parody entitled "Sam, You Made The Pants Too Long". Both songs were hits.

The 1933 date means that Steve would know the song from before he became a super-soldier. The joke's of just the right vintage for him.

The Joker ad is a clear demonstration of why he went back to being a homicidal maniac; the universe is clearly weighted against him. He employs the same strategy in pursuit of his goal that the so-called heroes do -- distribute Hostess products as a distraction so as to win the day -- and yet when he does, they inexplicably fail. ("We also like catching you"? Does this mean that the Chairman doesn't like turning people into chairs? Does that make any sense at all? Of course not! His acts are not a demonstration of the universe's nonsensicality, they are a reaction to it. Why not slaughter everyone you can get your hands on?

You know, I think trying to explain the multiple meanings of a polysemous word (tear, trip) all in the same example really isn’t that good of an idea, pedagogically speaking.

I'm kind of on the mummy's side here, actually. Those archaeologists did, y'know, violate the tomb and everything. Leaving them to suffocate is admittedly a bit extreme, but, uh, he was acting in self-defense against a pair of dangerous trespassers, maybe? Probably wouldn't work IRL, but it might be a good enough defense for comic-book law.

Also, that is one surprisingly articulate mummy.

Also also, I didn't know they were still making mummies 2000 years ago.
