A shining example of the unstoppable, never-say-die determination that's made Captain Comet a household name!
Well, that's encouraging.

From The Secret Society of Super-Villains #12, "The Plunder Plan!" Written by Gerry Conway, pencils by Mike Vosburg, ins by Bob McLedd.

In Comet's defense, it is the super-villains book, and he's not the only hero having a hard time of it this month:
I don't know how strong Blockbuster's supposed to be, but strong enough Robin's not going anywhere for a while, not so strong as to outright kill him. That's one of the little oddities of the old DC universe, one that's especially obvious in books like Legion of Super-Heroes: there's the characters with pretty super strength, like Blockbuster here, or maybe Timber Wolf. Guys that could throw around a semi-truck pretty easily. Then there's super, super strength: like, duh, Superman, who could push the planet across the galaxy. And not a lot of in-between there, for some reason.

Anyway, I'm dogging it out tonight, and hope this is the weekend I get to finally see either the Simpsons or Rise of the Silver Surfer, or Rao forbid, both. Wish me luck!
