Never been much of an X-Men fan or reader, but what a great splash page.

Special note: as a kid I assumed his name was pronounced the Spanish way, with the X making an H sound, as in Javier: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Javier_(name)

I didn't think X as in X-Men for quite some time. Pronouncing his name "Ex-ay-vee-er" still grates on my ears. Of course, now I call him Profesor Javier and assume he is a closet Latino.

Cheating with two panels but still a hilarious dialogue blunder.

I have a near-complete set of Atlas Comics...nobody else seems to like them!

How could anyone not want to read "The Night of the Golden Führer"?

The Cougar was really a very good and original blend of Kolchak, Hollywood, the stuntman/Eval Knievel fad, and super hero action.

I just find this hugely entertaining...something you'll never again see done unself-consciously in today's "serious" "adult" comics about men in Spandex beating each other up.

In my eXiles game, one of my new PCs is Vic Doom; Cynthia and Werner von Doom fled Latveria as political refugees, Americanized their names, and their son Victor grew up on Yancy Street and became a supernatural private detective.

He has a professional rivalry with Jessica Jones, because their cases always crossover. It's complicated by the fact that Vic always owes her husband money.

Maybe I'm having a Mandela effect moment, but I remember it being much smaller when I saw it as a kid

I think there is some tricky photography going on there. The perspective of this photo makes the case look huge, and the woman looking it at it small.

The painting in the photo is definitely smaller than the one Batman is doodling on though. Compare the woman's head to the size of the painting in the photo. Then compare the size of Batman's head to the size of the painting in the comic. Aside from the size of the painting itself, compare the size of the Mona Lisa herself to the actual person. In the photo, the painting is clearly smaller than life size. In the comic, Batman is to scale with the Mona Lisa.

The Mona Lisa isn't tiny, but it isn't as big as the comic either. It's also probably the smallest painting we can see in that room which would have added to you thinking of it as small.

Sadly, you can't get Hostess Fruit Pies [TM] here any more, so I'll be moving forward with my dastardly plot.
