HAHAHAHAHA!

It's a reference to a famous act of bowdlerizing* to one of Jim Steranko's stories, in Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD #2 (July 1968).

Here's an article from CBR that spells things out: "Comic Book Legends Revealed #219"

(The Marvel Fandom site says John Romita Sr. made the edits to the page.)

*This wasn't "censorship." Censorship would be a government entity ordering the changes.

Thanks for the link, CK! I just got back in, and your link explained it better than I ever could!

"Steranko would have put that parrot in a HOLSTER."

Well, it's head is in a bush.

Nice! (I say this to congratulate both you AND Batman...)

Ha, thanks!

Incidentally, I read this issue of Batman today, and really liked it. It looks like the upswing in mood after a dour year is finally happening!
