Dear Bouncing Boy...

Excerpted from the Daily Planet's short-lived advice column, May 3, 2969 edition:

Dear Bouncing Boy,

Ever since a mishap while I was helping a friend out with some computer problems, I really feel like I haven't been myself. It's like I'm only two thirds the girl I used to be, and lately I've been feeling, well, downright useless when it comes to helping out my pals. Is there any way I can help them out? Maybe I could tell jokes!

Please Help,
Bipolar on Cargg

Dear Bipolar,

Best Wishes,
Chuck "Bouncing Boy" Taine

Isn't that his future wife?

I've always been a Bouncing Boy fan. During the Giffen/Levitz Legion run, he seemed to be a legit member of the team, despite what might be a "lame" power. He's a great fun kind of character. Of course, I like Speedball, too. Dang, that'd be a great crossover battle. (Pre-Civil-War, Speedball, of course.)

And yeah, that's his future wife. Or, wives, depending on how you look at it.

Bouncing Boy looks kind of like this sexual predator I saw on Chris Hansen's Dateline special.

In plainspeak: "Oh, silly little woman! You don't have to string words together or think or anything, you can just stand over there and look pretty. We'll let you hang out with us."

Awesome! The fact that he's so earnest and honestly well-intentioned about it just makes it so much better...

That must be an example of the charm Bouncing Boy used to help Duo Damsel get over her crush on Superboy.

we may mock Mr.Taine, but he did manage to talk his way into a totally wife-sactioned threesome--FOR LIFE. WITH LEGION FLIGHT RINGS THROWN IN, TOO.

the guy's life is a Penthouse Forum letter waiting to be written.

good on ya, Bouncing Boy!

See boys? We don't have to be smart...so long as we're PRETTY!

I'm going to clear my brain and read some Jonah Hex.

The next panel:

Triplicate Girl: "So what's your excuse tubby? Your power is useless and you're certainly nothing to look at?"

Now that right there is why he gets the ladies. Don't Fuck With Chuck.

I think Bouncing Boy's power is more than just inflating himself into a giant ball. Perhaps he is able to magically charm people to like him and not be offended by his comments as well.

Then again, considering his power, perhaps it's not just his stomach that he can inflate but other parts of his body as well. Eh? Nudge-nudge. If you know what I mean, and I think you do.

Why isn't Herbie wearing his glasses or Bee pants in this panel?
