I Love Ya But You’re Strange – A Bunch of Vehicles Talk Smack About Wonder Woman’s Robot Plane

by  in Comic News Comment

Every week, I will spotlight strange but ultimately endearing comic stories (basically, we’re talking lots and lots of Silver Age comic books). Here is the archive of all the installments of this feature. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have a suggestion for a future installment!

Today we look at a delightfully bizarre tale of Wonder Woman’s robot plane getting mocked by other historic vehicles during a time it was on loan to a museum.

The second story in Wonder Woman #86 was written by Robert Kanigher and drawn by H.G. Peter. This 1956 tale was soon before Ross Andru and Mike Esposito took over the book and re-designed the robot plane.

So anyhow, the plane is on loan to the local museum for an exhibit about famous vehicles…


Sp the other vehicles proceed to talk shit about the robot plane…



This does not impress the other vehicles…


So the plane tells another one.

They’re STILL not impressed…


I love how dickish the other vehicles are about the plane getting stolen. “Oh well, who cares?”

Then, of course, the plane proves itself…


Some fair weather friends you got there, robot plane!

I now want to see a future Justice League story where the Batmobile insults the robot plane. Don’t let me down, Geoff Johns!
