Mondays and Fridays

A typical morning in the Mighty household ... and before anyone makes a joke about Jane making a "hero sandwich", no she didn't.  It's egg salad, low-fat chips, and a banana yogurt.  (Besides, the "hero sandwich joke was done years ago in a Mad Magazine superhero satire.)

Coming Monday ... what does every superhero need?  Why, a cool mode of transportation, of course!

Happy Father's Day ... Dad, if you read this sometime during the weekend, I think you're mildly heroic yourself.

Personally I hate this trope. It's anathema to the very root concept of the superhero--- that the government can't always save you; that sometimes the lone man or woman has to step forward and stand in the gap, whether or not the powers that be approve. "Superhero registration" just makes them an extension of the government--- which anyone can tell you is a VERY dangerous precedent. the government should be subservient to the people, not the other way around.

I can't understand how a society that had the sense to conclude that an involuntary draft had something malfeasant about it, could later begin to accept the paradigm that superhumans "would have to" be subjected to a *superhuman* draft.....

Hey, Ralph, thanks for commenting.

The superhero registration isn't intended to be taken too seriously.  It's just a convenient plot device; Mr. Mighty will have to perform some community service, which leads to a couple of other events which are important to the overall story.

So you have read Good Omens, Narbonic, Dominc Deegan : oracle for hire  and the Wotch. Good taste in books and comics so far

dialogue error... first panel, did you mean to have her say "play play"?

Brian McCloud (mauvecloud) says:

I like the Final Fantasy XII reference.

Amber Thompson (msfrost) says:

So, it's a plot device. :)

Trivia Time: Given that the building is named for Kurt Vonnegut (well, he's the only "Vonnegut" *I've* heard of), I suppose that this story is set after 1967.  So, in what year did Evansville go on Daylight Savings Time and the other three cities shown not do so?

 

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Evansville?  What Evansville?  That says "Bloomington", plain as day.

OK, Tetra, I goofed.  Yes, it did originally say "Evansville".  Actually, for many years, Evansville and Gary (Central Time Zone) would go on Daylight Savings, and the rest of the state wouldn't.  (Indiana is weird.)  Now the whole state goes on DST, so Evansville shouldn't be the same as the other cities.  I retconned it.
