I got my first glimpse of Indy's newest superhero the other day. No, it's not someone with a cool power given by exposure to radiation, or a mutated gene. Neither is it a rich vigilante with awesome gadgets, or a visitor from an alien world affected by Earth's yellow sun. It's a stretch of highway that's under construction. It must be a superhero though, because it says "super" right there in its name, and it has a cool logo with wings. I introduce to you...Super 70.
My first encounter with Super 70 must have been simply an introduction to its mild-mannered alter ego, because nothing eventful happened. I can't wait to see what it's powers of delay, frustration and confusion hold in store.
Does anyone know where the quote "Meanwhile, at the Hall of Justice, Aquaman was making a peanut butter sandwich because he can't do shit," originated? Jay and I saw a new Aquaman video game in the store the other day, and were speculating how many different ways to make a peanut butter sandwich it must feature.
Batman is branching out. Wayne Enterprises is now selling Holy drinking water. The bottles feature the warning "If you are a sinner or evil in nature, this product may cause burning, intense heat, sweating, skin irritations, rashes, itchiness, vomiting, bloodshot and watery eyes, pale skin color and oral irritations." I've got to buy a case of this stuff to take to parties. Maybe some fake blood and smoke bombs too. Wow, I've got a great practical joke all set up. Wait, maybe that's Batman's plan. Perhaps this is too good of a practical joke for the Joker to miss out on, either. Clever, Batman, very clever.
