Man With Wings!

A man with wings can't not look stupid. That's one thing. Swim, maybe? Not sure about that one. Carry more than one measly bag of money, apparently. Well, folks, anything else a man with wings can't do?

Stop trying to bring the vulture down. At least he's freaking doing SOMETHING in the strip. Unlike Peter Parker. Or anyone else. Ask not what the Vulture can't do for you, but what he can do to move this storyline along so that we can stop with Peter Parker whining about having the flu and get him on to whining about something different. Because that's all Parker can do, apparently.

For starters, how can a man with wings fit through an open manhole?

The Vulture may be doing something, but he is doing it in such an absurd way with ridiculous dialogue that I'd feel I was being neglectful in my duties if I didn't mention his silliness and how odd I think he is.

Besides, I don't really want this storyline to move that much. If this is what Stan Lee is achieving with an actual super-villain, then I positively dread what he's going to manage with some random guy in a suit.

Unless that random guy is the Kingpin or Hammerhead, in which case I'll be all giddy for a week or so before the ever-present ennui of this strip crushes me once more.

A man with wings cannot claim to be a man without wings.

A man with wings cannot lay eggs.

A man with wings can, however, shower you in feces. That is why you should always be on the lookout for a man with wings.

Just where the heck is he, anyway?

In all my years riding the New York subways, I've never been on the line that runs through the abandoned mine shaft.

That's the biggest damn subway station I've ever seen. Cathedral ceilings?

And I sure hope the Vulture checked the signals carefully before flying into a subway tunnel. One well-placed A Train, and it's goodbye supervillain.

I assume that if a man with wings drinks Red Bull, he explodes.

It's science...like webshooters.

While I'm thinking of it...a man with wings can't avoid the oncoming train.

Mike, hilarious comments on today's strip. I almost don't want to see what Peter's doing because he'll more than likely try to get up and fight the Vulture.

Tommy Craig said...

Meanwhile, back at the Parker Homestead:

Peter: "I've got to get up and fight the vulture!"
MJ: "But you've got the flu!"
Peter: "Okay, honey. You win!"

He can't burrow, like the next villain to make an appearance with a desperate name - the Mole!

Maybe the Mole will have a henchman named the Garden Weasel. He was bitten by a radioactive tool, and has the proportionate power of a...never mind.

Personally, I'd prefer the Underminer.
