And there was the original look for Black Canary, back in the world of DC by Carmine Infantino:

She's wearing fishnets! Those blue legs with the crosshatching are how her fishnets were depicted for decades.

It just makes her look like she's got blue legs. Maybe she's caught a chill.

Notice how in the third picture Johnny Thunder's just basically staring at her bum?

That seems like a logical course of action, to me.

Yeah, he's checking to see how the hypothermia in her lower regions is progressing.

I actually didn't mind that look. But then, I have a bit of a soft spot for the eighties. I also liked Guy Gardner's moon boots. And I never could resist a woman in leg warmers...

So, you approved of Marvel's Valkyrie with her Ugg® boots?

I know I didn't. To me, they were "ugh" boots. Val's original costume was a classic, I don't understand why Marvel are obsessed with changing their characters looks every five minutes these days.

To sell action figures?

Those boots don't look very practical for a warrior, although they'd be very trendy on a student.

I think the only Valkyrie figure they've ever released had the classic costume.

But they could've released a figure with boots made from real fur.

It would be rather an expensive figure. And PETA would probably attack Toys R Us.

Please . . . faux-fur is the more expen$ive term to use.

And her new costume made her look like she belonged in Elfquest.

So even with the U.K., people seem to like Batman?

(He is the character with the most votes so far, though all the other votes added together would beat him up and leave him crying for his Mommy . . . who happens to be dead, but, whatever.)

Actually, the Scotch egg was apparently invented by London department store Fortnum & Mason in 1738. And who invented the first telephone is a matter of some debate, with an Italian named Antonio Meucci being a strong contender.

So the invention of the Scotch egg wasn't important? It was a major culinary innovation!

Must be important only in certain areas, though according to Wikipedia, they can even be served on a stick!

By the way, did the Scotch invent Scotch tape?  Wink

Shouldn't that be a Scots Egg and Scots Tape?

BTW Major, the Scots aren't Scotch. As an uncle of mine used to say, "Scotch is a drink."

Yes. Real Scotch has to be produced in Scotland, by law.

Does all whisky spelled with an E, i.e. whiskey, have to be produced in Ireland?

"Whisky" would look like a cutesy brand of cat food or something.

it's clearly not used to the correct spelling of words like "Spelt" and "color".
