Stupid Hero Quote

No matter how drugs Grant Morrison takes. No matter how much sugar Jeff Loeb eats. No matter how often Roy Thomas foregoes sleep to read All-Stars for 72 hours straight.

No one can duplicate the madness of the Silver Age. It was a time when a superhero could say, with a perfectly straight face:

"Then, for a while, I was Hitler?"

And be correct.

But who? And why?

Hey! I actually think I get this! Would it be Superboy, from the Legion of Superheroes story wherein he, Mon-El, and Lightning Lad got taken over by the minds of Hitler, Nero, and Dillinger respectively?

Impressive...and correct!

Hitler and Nero in the 30th; why, of course...!

Thank you, Mike! It's a story EVERY child should read...

"You can't be Hitler in personality" may be one of the finest pieces of dialogue to ever appear in a comic book. God bless you, Edmond Hamilton.

It's funny to hear you say that, Mike! That's the EXACT line that stuck in my ear, too.

Like, say, an icepick...
