"Wojo was intimidated by Harris, who was pretty smart, and both of them -- and Barney, and Fish -- were intimidated by Dietrich, who knew everything.  Yemana was not intimidated by Deitrich, because he was cool like that."

Richard Willis replied to Captain Comics's discussion TV shows I am binging
"Back then, before Magnum, Wojo was the only Vietnam vet portrayed on TV (or in the movies) who wasn't a criminal, a lunatic or both. I kinda appreciated that, even though he wasn't portrayed as very smart."

Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.

Thank you Captain. I hope to be on your site for many years to come. I hope I can gleen as much information from your site about 1980s comics and politically incorrect ones. Thanks for having me.

Hey Captain, Someone named Ann who joined just two hours ago has tried to "friend" me, and wants to form a long term relationship with me! Lucky me! Can we investigate & ban this come-on? Thanks.
