Superhero Costumes,cheap Superhero Costumes
It's HerefordMan, complete with black nasty. Actually there's probably a BlacknastyMan out there somewhere, taping up the baddies while taking it up the shitter.

Why do people read these things? Some people big them up as a kind of social commentary, wrapped up in a good story. But why do the main characters always have to dress themselves up as dildoes with speshul powers in order to get the commentary across?
I reckon your ex did you a favour, mate; protecting you from yourself.
There's a common thread to all these 'super heroes'. They all do different things; x-ray eyes or immense strength and they all wear silly costumes.
They also, to a man share a vulnerable quality, just like every flaming TV detective.
They sit there on the bog, tights round their ankles and cape trussed up, head in hands, remembering a terrible trauma or injustice and weep into their gussets, before tighting up to save the world.
I can't imagine anybody other than a complete vegetable wanting to read these comics.

I must admit I found Watchmen a little over rated & IMHO certainly not the incredible work of modern fiction it's supposed to be, although it passed time adequately enough. The rest of the superhero stuff with the exception of Batman leaves me cold.
Really enjoyed V For Vendetta and The League Of Extraordinary Gentlement, though, the latter for some superb draughtsmanship & rather clever conceits. The Joe Sacco stuff from Yugoslavia also meant a lot, although that could have been the time & place I was reading it.
Anyway, the best ever cartoon series* is Asterix, closely followed by Tintin. I use the former as an aid to learning new languages & have a shelf full of the things.
*As in not in a comic. The old style Beano/Dandy/Warlord/Commando & their ilk still have a special place in my heart.To eat well in England one must have breakfast three times a day
London: its "buzz" and "vibrancy"... can be codewords for drugs, late-night noise and multi-culturalism run (literally) riot.

The dam was about to burst, the nuclear powerplant was in the hands of Evilman, there was only one man who could save the townsfolk; with dread in their hearts they braved the route to his hideaway.
'Help us, only you have the mystical keys which will unleash vengeance on Evilman, and stop the dam from bursting and destroying the orphanage!' They cried.
