JUSTICE LEAGUE #5 (1987): THE GREATEST PUNCH IN COMIC BOOK HISTORY
Everyone remembers the time Batman slugged Guy Gardner, but there was another time Batman hit a Green Lantern. Know it?
PUNISHER SUMMER SPECIAL #1 (1991)
In 1992, Marvel published the first of four Punisher Summer Specials, because after all he only was in two regular ongoings and had only three or four one-shots or graphic novels that year. So he needed more exposure.
Lots of good names were attached to the project: Peter David, Pat Mills, Val Mayerik, Jim Palmiotti, Dan Slott…But it was really just mindless (and mind-numbing) violence with nothing to redeem it.
Except the Barbed Wire Gun.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY M.O.D.O.K. and THE TOP 10 M.O.D.O.K.s OF ALL TIME
I love me some M.O.D.O.K. And I’m not the only one. I mean, who doesn’t like a giant head with dinosaur hands and a spoiled baby attitude? The Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing first appeared way back in 1967 in Tales of Suspense #93, where Stan and Jack pitted him agains Captain America. Since then, there’s been Ms. Modok, zombie Modoks, Elvis Modoks, Modams, and all kinds of other joyous variations.
So, I think it’s time for a MODOK top 10! Click for more.
