So, now that I've looked that word up, would they be using the original meaning, or the milder more-modern interpretation?

I can't remember the guy's name but I saw a Canadian stand-up comedian at the Edingburgh Festival a few years back who pleaded with his audience to "pity us poor Canadians. We live next door to the Americans, in the snow, with the French".  Razz

Well, he did have that period where he was wearing a short skirt as his "fighting togs".

It was the 70s. Mitigating circumstances, Major. Anyway, he still didn't look as stupid as Cosmic Boy.

Have you been exposed to any color / colour of Kryptonite lately?


(Yes, I know this is a Marvel thread, but we had a nekkid Stan Lee in the Favo(u)rite DC Comics Character thread, so it's all good.)

She has never seemed to suffer from either, despite being very athletic. She did briefly switch to some sort of grey bodystocking thing with a spider printed on it in the eighties, but it wasn't really her kind of look.

At least 50% of superheroes must have 'the ability to survive while wearing this costume' as a supplementary superpower/mutation.

In the case of Wonder Woman, don't forget her magnetic boobs, without which her top would constantly be slipping down to her waist because of the weight of the WW symbol...

Valkyrie of the Defenders has them, too. They're a special kind of implant, the only doctor qualified to carry out the procedure is Dr Polaris.

She's originally from Russia, so she's use to temperature extremes.

It's amazing what you can find using a Google image search.  Razz 

I once was searching for an image of a Quetzalcoatl when I was substitute teaching for an 8th grade Spanish class and stumbled on a picture of a man with a Quetzalcoatl tattoo . . . below the belt, with his "soldier" very much at attention!  Shocked 

(Thankfully, I did my search when no students were in the room.)
