Worst Superpower Ever In The Entire Universe

This is one of my favorite comics:

FLY MAN #35 (Mighty Comics Group, Jan. 1966)

"PHANTASMON THE TERRIBLE AND HIS ALIEOG-LABOIDS VS. FLY MAN & FLY GIRL"


"Alieog-Laboids"? What the heck? I think my uncle had his alieog-laboids removed...

Beneath this rather bizarre cover lurks the Worst Superpower Ever. Are you sitting down? Good. Deep breath. Here you go:








"Behold... Lightning-bolts... crashing out of my nostrils!"


I surrender.

Though I do think that would make a really cool T-shirt.

Hey Bill.

Me and my friend Dale(he comes in alot) were bored tonight so we decided to make a movie(we make a bunch of videos, you can see most of them at http://myspace.com/vacuumcrew)

Anyways, tonight we were fishing for ideas, then Dale mentioned about how I use to have a box at Comix Connection and how I just didn't pick it up(yeah, i was dead broke, i just should have told you guys, but i was being stupid about it). Anyways, we decided to raise the question, 'What happens when you don't clean up your box at Comix Connection'.

Hah, it's not our best work, but we tried.

Here's a link to the youtube video

That's pretty funny guys, but the truth is closer to the first idea... we come over and rip up your front yard as a warning.

You can avoid that by just, y'know, picking up your stuff (or letting us know you don't want a box anymore.)

Yeesh.



Still, pretty funny, guys.

Dang, I was really banking on the Comic Fairy, though.

That cracked me up. And I love how he's all overconfident about it. Behold...lighting--ooh, that's...eww. Can he only use those when he sneezes, or what? Crashing out of my nostrils...who writes this? Brian Michael Bendis, I think you've got an Eisner opponent!
