Yeah, that was my reaction too.
It’s sweet…but not sweet enough to warrant a full Awww.
Well, Jen did only give it two out of three.
She’s found her perfect man.
“I like my men Geeky and Stupid”
Like my coffee.
Weak and with way too much sugar?
Thrown into a burlap sack and smuggled across the border?
Used to hide cocaine from customs?
Handpicked from the feces of wildcats?
Hand picked and crapped out by a Luwak?
I would reference Krieger here, but someone might hurt me.
Ground up and drenched with boiling water.
Sterilized via boiling.
Covered in bees
Who are you and how do you know that joke?!?!
Purchased ethically in South America?
Hey at least Amazi-Girl wears a mask. As far as I’m concerned, Lois Lane and ALL of Clark Kent’s supporting cast are dumber than Danny is right now.
And when facial recognition software becomes common-place, how will Clark Kent ever hope to conceal the face that he is Superman?
I think a part of the mythos that used to float around is that Clark always vibrated his face in photos so it’d always show up blurry.
Would’t that mean that if Clark ever went to London, his face would be vibrating non-stop due to all the CC cameras.
If that’s true then Lois would be a very lucky woman on that trip.
That and the fact that ordinary people sees Superman as this larger than life guy. They wouldn’t suspect a reporter from Kansas.
It might work better if Superman used a different accent compared to Clark, I hear that a Kansas accent if pretty distinctive.
The Kansas accent (although it varies depending on a number of factors) is pretty non-existent. It runs fairly close to the “non-accent” they teach TV personalities to use.
Being from Kansas, aside from a few things like washed (and i half think that was my best friend pulling my leg), no one has picked out an accent.
I’ve been to Europe, and been understood without problem by non native english speakers, who were amazed about that. (As they had trouble with most others.) Granted, I’ve been told I should do radio on a few occasions, as well.
Yeah, inexplicably we’re like that in DC as well. I’ve heard people from Kansas and Nebraska and they sound virtually identical to us.
That happened once. Lex used facial recognition, but dismissed because he couldn’t conceive of someone having that kind of power and choosing to be a meek reporter instead of a dictator.
Lex Luthor: not actually that smart.
Lex Luthor: Graduating alongside Homer. Yep, he’s SMRT.
I’m pretty sure if Superman decided to moonlight as a dictator, somebody would have noticed the dictator’s invulnerability to assassination and his awesome eye-beams of judgement.
Like Hitler? Now that guy survived way too many assassination attemptions to dismiss him as a mear mortal.
That guy was so overpowered, the only person who could kill him was himself!
Pretty sure those showed up in RED SON eventually, yeah.
A reporter from Kansas with the same FAAAAAAAAACE
The “vibrating face” theory also explains why Lois puts up with the problems inherent in being Superman’s significant other. 😉
Did they ever actually state that. I know Jay Garrick had that as part of his whole thing, but I don’t remember ever reading it for Superman.
I remember some snippet on Superdickery that revealed that Clark has subtle, subconscious hypnosis powers that prevent people from making the connection in person, too. And something about the Kryptonian glass lenses amplifying it.
The problem is when someone try to compare them via photos then there’s no way Clark can hypnotize him.
No no, he vibrated his molecules so that he was “blurry” ALL THE TIME. People literally couldn’t differentiate between Superman and Clark because he was moving his body in such a way that their brain didn’t trigger that sense of familiarity you get with even a face that you recognize but you’re not sure from where.
That has just the right combination of real-sounding science and silliness to make it a reasonable explanation.
It doesn’t hurt that he can laser lobotomize anybody who does figure it out from orbit. Between panels, of course.
The problem is when someone knock him out cold he will stop vibrating and people will notice.
Good thing it sounds pretty difficult to knock Superman out cold, hehe.
Also, in the post-Crisis universe, no one thought he had a “secret identity.”
He doesn’t appear to be hiding anything. Everyone knows his real name – It’s Kal-El. The dude doesn’t wear a mask. He was very forthcoming about being an alien. Everyone knows he has a fortress somewhere, so they just assumed that when he wasn’t saving somebody that he was just kicking back in his fortress or possibly just saving someone else.
In a way, it’s the best disguise ever.
Until somebody catches a glimpse at him and recognizes his testosteriffic physique. I mean, really. In some appearances his shoulders are broader than his torso is tall.
Maybe people presume that he’s your typical Kansas farmer boy with muscles from working in the field?
Go watch Chris Reeve again. Particularly the scene in Lois’ apartment where he goes from “Clark Kent” to “Superman in Kent’s suit” just by taking off his glasses and straightening up. You will believe a man can lie.
However, He’s on level with every character that knows Robin.
A good example of how posture and how you hold your face can change a lot of how you’re seen.
Very strongly considering making that my profile pic. Or maybe avatar on this site…
Sadly, link doesn’t work for me. =|
Spoilers! Amazi-Girl kills Dumbledore with Rosebud.
While revealing to Danny that not only is she his father (YES, his FATHER), but they’re also the same person.
And that she’s just a hallucination and/or dead.
And that she’s aging backwards Just in time for Junior prom!
And in the end, it was all a dream, and Danny wakes up in bed with Suzanne Pleshette.
Not Rosebud! MY LIFE IS RUINED! RUINED, I TELLS YOU!
Poor sled 🙁
Rosebud was a SLED?!?!?
lol i get it
And Ruth is actually just a costume the faculty keep in the shed to keep the students from wandering into the woods.
That movie was actually kind of underrated. I dug it.
Absolutely. For me, it was Lady in the Water where he lost the benefit of the doubt. I wanted to like it, I really did, but I haven’t bothered seeing one of his movies since.
Good, less people watch Airbender. Stupid movie is so stupid.
That movie hurt me. I went to see it at midnight. AT FREAKIN’ MIDNIGHT.
But MJ always knew Peter was Spidey…
Huh? Since when?
That was the story in the original comics. It was an early retcon. According to one flashback, she spotted Spidey coming out of Peter’s window before she officially met him.
Wow…Peter was kind of a fuck-up.
The best part is, she spotted him the very first time he ever left his house in costume. Which was like, several minutes before he started his superhero career.
I see what you did there.
*Has a friend who love Spidey and rage to no end at Spidey’s retcon*
Well, if DiDi was going for a One More Day joke, it still doesn’t apply. MJ still knows Peter’s identity in the new continuity. Pretty much everything about their relationship turned out to be unchanged except for the part where they tied the knot. Everything after still happened with them just living in sin.
“After having kissed both of them”? That means he has to go around kissing random girls, just in case one of them turns out to be Amazi-Girl.
Everybody line up alphabetically!
He’s already got B covered. (assuming we’re going by last or nick-names.)
Or you could investigate, confront her about it and became her confidant or a partner. Trust me, it’s better than being the “torn between the mask and the woman” route.
Though that route might lead to your own death. On the upside though you’ll came back a cyborg ninja. The downside is you lose your memories.
I wonder if Mike overheard this and plans on spoiling the plot by figuring out Amazi-Girl’s secret identity.
Mike as a villain? Hmmm……
You’re right, that’s just too far-fetched. 😛
Don’t you sully mikes good name again?
He has a good name?
Michael is a fine name.
That actually is surprisingly plausible. He would be a perfect nemesis.
Amber Kiss him now and then in disguise and reveal it. That’d be perfect.
Yes, kiss him now.
Okay, Amazi-Girl needs to get a tattoo. Then when Danny-boy sees Ruth out of costume with the same tattoo, he’ll realize the truth.
Like as in a tramp-stamp?
NO! no tattoo! only morons who think tattoo is cool (also it will look disgusting and worse in your old age).
I happen to like my tattoo.
Yeah, but it isn’t cool.
It’s body temperature.
I can’t decide whether that’s stupid or adorable.
Not stupidly adorable.
just stupid guys
Given her facial expression and his kissing comment, I think I have an idea of what’s coming next….
He goes and kisses Sal.
Danny, you can still find romance as confidant, you know.
But if he did that, he’ll end up kidnapped all tyhe damn time.
until he too becomes a vigilante.
or gets Stuffed Into A Fridge.
But the good news is that there’s a 50% of coming back. Either as a cyborg or other methods.
Those dragonballs are hard to find.
See? Even in Dragon Ball, resurrection is not easy.
Yeah, but being the Black Lantern-esque general of DAB’s undead legions would probably put a crimp in their romance.
Oh great. Now I’m picturing them all as Black Lanterns. Except Joyce, she’d be chillin with Dove.
I have a minifridge for that.
Not if he’s prepared. Hey, when you involved with a hero, you better be willing to take the risk.
So Danny becomes Ron Stoppable to Amazi-Girl’s Kim Possible?
In a way, yes.
Or the Ultimate version of Aunt May to Amazi-Girl’s Ultimate version of Spider-Man.
Somehow, I can totally imagine a panicked Danny running away from supervillains like Ron Stoppable.
And then transitioning that talent into being a runningback in football.
Ron Stoppable made a pretty good villain, Danny had better run fast.
If I suggest a new ship set sail and we call it the KimXAmber will I be keelhauled or just forced to rewatch the 2nd and 3rd PotC movies?
No, you’ll get to choose between Pain, Pleasure or Weird Punishment or as I like to call it P, P or WP.
I’m not sure if Danny has brain damage or not, but if he does, it appears to be both airborne and highly contagious.
So now Amber is torn between wanting to date Danny and wanting to live out her superhero romance fantasy.
They both are
Only because one implies waiting.
They’re definitely made for each other. Curse the Maker! Oh wait, that’s Willis. So I guess that means…..DYW!
Do Your Will?
Oh, ah. I see.
Do Your Worst. That would be way better. Realized that a second after I hit th submit button
Damn yes, Wonka!
Do you want?!
Dedicated Yeshua Worshiper?
All my feels, willis. All of my feels. 😐
Sure, it sounds nerdy when you put it like that, but everyone fantasizes in the beginning of a relationship. Maybe this pairing isn’t as dysfunctional as it looked. Which would be something of a tradition for Amber.
The Friday comic forwarding to Monday’s broke again. It seems like there might be something up in the posting system. Probably worth looking into before we get too deeply archived.
..Why would Danny kiss Ultra-Car?
Slash fiction ahoy?
Truly, truly, truly outrageous.
Wel Amber is a jem 😛
You’re doing it wrong. It’s supposed to be OUTRAGEOUS!
This is probably the kind of thing you shouldn’t be sharing with girls who are roughly the same height, build, and race as Amazi-Girl, Danny.
No i think he’s good. Sierra’s not around.
Unless she’s just off panel. Did i miss something?
Her shoes are right there on panel.
Please kiss him, Amber!
For a while, I assumed that anybody who knew Clark Kent knew he was Superman, but they just didn’t let on because they didn’t want to bruise his ego.
Panel 4 is the most meta thing I have ever read.
Dangerously genre savvy.
No,no you totaly spoild it dick
“In the heat of a dramatic moment” – sounds about right.
Actually, Dan, in most versions of the story, Mary Jane knew Spidey’s secret identity *before* her *first appearance*.
By the way, the boat sinks at the end
no san diego comic-con, the sorries
