Snark Free Corner for 9/4

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

Special Labor Day edition!!

Enjoy!

WEIRD COMIC THINGS

A weird aspect of Hal Jordan's past is how many odd jobs the man has had over the years. Originally (and most memorably), Hal was a test pilot for Ferris, where he dated his boss, Carol Ferris. However, he resigned from that job about thirty years ago!

Since then, Hal has sold insurance, he's sold toys (!?!?), he's been a migrant farm worker (!?!??), he's been a full-time Green Lantern, he's been a Spirit of Vengeance and only recently, he once again became a Test Pilot, this time for the military.

Has any comic book hero ever had as many odd jobs as Hal Jordan?

4. Linda Park had her pregnancy ended prematurely by the villain Zoom, but then, just as suddenly, after a later battle with Zoom, the effect was reversed and Linda gave birth almost right away!

5. Ms. Marvel gave "birth" to the guy who had brainwashed her and impregnated her with himself while there were all sorts of temporal oddities outside of Avengers Mansion.
