Snark Free Corner for 4/9

Snark Free Corner for 4/9

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

SNARK FREE THEME DAY

This week’s theme is “Reform School Girls,” or rather, when superheroes fall for reformed female super villains.

1. Batman and Catwoman are the most notable example, as the pair have had two notable romances, most recently during the Hush storyline.

2. Green Lantern (Alan Scott) married the former villain, Harlequinn, and the two are still married.

3. Both Vision AND the Scarlet Witch were once villains, before they hooked up.

4. Captain America dated the reformed villain, Diamondback, for a long time during Mark Gruenwald’s Captain America run.

5. Iron Man got involved with Madame Masque, who was reformed off and on.

6. Both Hawkeye and Daredevil fell for the former Russian villain, Black Widow.

7. Captain Atom married the former villain Plastique.

8. Martian Manhunter was romantically involved with the villain Scorch, and I BELIEVE she was reformed for a time. I am not positive about that.

Any I missed?

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

Good luck! One cool point to the first one who figures it out!

SNARK FREE CHALLENGE

Name me a Marvel or DC superhero who has a truly secret identity, one in which no character other than the hero him/herself knows who they really are.

COVER HOMAGE

Here’s how this one works.

I give you a cover, and you have to tell me a comic cover that homages this cover.

I’m mixing it up a bit this week, in that I am going to give you three homages myself, leaving you to name me more than the three.

In return for the more difficult assignment, you get TWO cool points for each cover (two cool points per commenter, so one single commenter can’t just blow it all in one fell swoop).

Here’s the cover…

Here are three covers that homage it…

Superman #147

Simpsons Comics #68

Legion of Superheroes #88

How awesome is the look Curt Swan gave to Superboy on that cover?!? Amazing.
