Have a Super Thanksgiving!

The events of Infinite Crisis #2 have brought me to a new and deep appreciation for just how inspiring the pre-Crisis Superman was. So, who better than he to help us realize how much we have to be thankful for?

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, nay, SUPERthanksgiving, the Absorbascon will focus this long holiday weekend on just a few of the many things that Superman makes us be thankful for.

Here's one now.

I'm thankful Dr. Wertham is not alive to see this panel:

Heck, I'm thankful Dr. Wertham's not alive period.

I'm also thankful that some trampy horned up farmgirl isn't holding a ladle in front of her breast and offering me milk, and that I'm not as desperately lonely and depraved as whoever drew this panel.

Pre-Crisis Superman is an inspiration to us all considering how little action he was getting before Crisis that he can resist such obvious cowgirl bait.

Scipio said...

Well, it's less impressive when you remember something we can't see ...

she positively REEKS of cow poo.

Can you imagine how that affects ones supersmelling sense?

MMMMMMmmmmmm, farmgirls...mmmmmmmm.

Happy Thanksgiving!

On this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for many things.

I am thankful that I have my health.

I am thankful for my family, my loving wife, adorable son, and the baby that will be born in April.

I am thankful that I have a steady job in this economy.

I am thankful that I live in a country where I have the right to criticize the government (because the current administration makes that a necessity).

And I'm thankful that I know a cool guy like Scipio!

I am thankful that Scipio posted a hi-res version of this panel so I can make a t-shirt!

Have a great holiday, everyone.

A rare glimpse of Clark in his other identity of Captain Obvious.

I DO hope Clark jumped that cowgirl's bones. I mean, come ON. During that time Lois didn't put out, and spent all her time trying to expose Clark's identity. GO, Clark! Try that sweet milk!

Please don't tell me what he actually did in the story, as it would probably ruin that scene for me.

But I will that after he started dating (and he did) he wound up in a wheelchair.

Dang! "Supertramp" isn't just a band, folks!
