Guest Entry - "Really, What WERE They Thinking?"

Hi there. My name’s Mordechai Luchins and I’ll be your guest blogger today.

I usually do this in my own blog, but Brian threatened me with embarrassing photos, so you guys get to see it too.

What is “this”?

Lately, I’ve been making my way through complete runs of comics. We’re talking The Avengers, World’s Finest, Brave & The Bold… good stuff, all of it. However, I’ve discovered something fascinating:

No matter what era you look at, Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Modern, some comic book creators were clearly crazy for the crack rock. It’s the only explanation for what I’ve found.

If you’re familiar with or Scott Shaw’s Oddball Comics, then you know that there are some crazy covers out there. What you may not know is that there are some equally bizarre things going on INSIDE the books as well.

So for the nice people at Comics Should Be Good, I give you five examples of panels that made me go “WTF?”:

Brought to you by Roy “Math is HARD” Thomas, this misogynistic portrayal of The Wasp is pretty standard. Basically, we’re reminded time and time again that she (and Wanda as well” are mere women and should go make Hawkeye a sammich.

Look our Richard! He’s got a hair-crimper and he’s not afraid to use it!

Okay, corrosive pee has to be the Worst Power Ever. Am I right folks?

This just in folks, believing in “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” is treasonous! Someone tell the Founding Fathers.

Also, I’m not touching the many, many jokes about Superman and Batman traitors for being Pro-Choice.

Darn, just did.

And number one…

Say that out loud.



Anyway, those are just five of the literal hundreds of panels/covers I’ve come across in my reading. For more wackiness, be sure to check out “What Were They Thinking” every Monday through Friday

Tell ‘em Namor sent you!

I'm just wondering why George Lucas brainwashed Batman and Superman. He's the real traitor!

When I read the newspapers and watch television "news" as of late, I think that comic with Bat-Man and Superman foretold the coming of conservative pundits.
"Imaginary Story" indeed!

I had hoped your blog "What Were The Thinking?" would be awesome, but it's all easy sex/dick/gay jokes and cheap innuendos.

Try harder, please.
