Super Different Fashion Sense

Superheroes: Same goals, very different fashion senses

Spiro loved his black latex suit.
Not because it showed off his muscles.

Said it made him look like a giant eggplant.

Beauty and the V8

Chick flees Hemi

Hemi was an all-state quarterback and he was crazy about Chick, the coach’s daughter and cute as a peep. Naturally everyone in school thought they were destined to be together.

Get up, get up! An In-law invasion is imminent!

Awkward Symbiosis

Calamites and No-see-ums

The Calamites communicate via No-see-ums, a symbiotic singularity to be certain.

It's fascinating to watch the Calamites attempt to flee their principal means of communication while their very words seem to mock them.

Portrait of St. Cheddarhausen

Saint Cheddarhausen claimed complete bewilderment at the number of people praying to him for domestic hegemony.

It was well known among lower-atmosphere saints, however, that he regularly encouraged devotion through such minor miracles as afflicting spouses with laryngitis during arguments or having the love letters of long lost flames appear in the stack of the day’s mail, always parting the celestial curtain just enough to allow the beneficiary to know to whom they could attribute their sudden upper hand.

Dogfight in the Clouds

Stupid MechBears and SkySharks

Do not trust mechanical animal antipathies;
Their loathing has no staying power.

Take the MechBears and SkySharks for instance.

One day they’re sworn enemies.
The next they’re symbioting to drop bombs on you.
