A Look At a More Innocent Time

I've thought pretty carefully about how I should introduce what you're about to see, but, well, there's not a whole lot I can add to it.

So tonight, the ISB is proud to present...

Captain Marvel Beating An Old Man With A Hammer

By Otto Binder and C.C. Beck, of course, from Captain Marvel Adventures #100. Ah, those were the days.

Well, anyone whose head would make a "CLANG!" sound when being hit with a hammer can't be trusted anyway.

Imagine if this happened in contemporary comics!

The heroes torn asunder amidst allogations of senior-abuse by one of their oldest and dearest icons!

Billy Batson joins those OPPOSED to violence against old people, while Captain Marvel joins those SUPPORTING of the culling!


Abusing old people is not the power packing way. Hnnnggg...

That's one of my favorite comic stories ever. Not because of the elder abuse, though.

I can only assume that the elderly gentleman either stole the good Captain's parking space, or was driving too slowly in traffic.

No, no, they're doing it all wrong. You've got to see the blood and the bits of brain splattering everywhere and the blood and the bone fragments flying and the blood and the squashed eyeballs bouncing on the optic fibres and the blood, the blood, the blood!

Because that's the only way to respect the legacy of comic book heroes.

So that's what happened to Forbush Man.

Harkens back to a simpler time, where Superman threatened (and/or killed) mob bosses weekly in his newspaper strip in the 30's.

That's a robot Sivana made out of Sivanium, isn't it?

Calm down, it's just a Murderclone Marvel Batman grew from one of the Captain's hairs.

When Captain Marvel does it, it forms the fodder for a hilarious blog post.

When I do it, it's a felony.

There's a goddamned double-standard for costumed heroes, I tell you.

Somewhere after one of those Clangs there really ought to be a "went the trolley". And yes I am that gay.

My favorite image from this story comes a few panels later when you see Cap on his knees, sweeping up the remnants with a teeny whisk broom and dustpan.
