"I didn't remember the "sex toy" bit. Ew.  It does raise an issue I've thought about before, about how all the women in comics are gorgeous (even in crowd scenes), so how can you tell who is actually attractive? Evidently…"

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.
