A lame superhero

Boo! Rubbish! But this character would be redeemed in my eyes if that last panel was a literal representation of her power in action. In other words, if her head triples in size and detaches from her body in a hail of purple healing beams, she's fucking cool. If not, she's lame.

Those scans are from Adventure Comics Presents Dial H For Hero #489. I used to love Dial H For Hero when I was a lad. But, after buying several issues for 30p at last Sunday's mart, I realise it was bollocks. For those who don't know, the basic premise of the comic was that kids could send in their ideas for superheroes . The best submissions would then appear in the comic. There were some really bad ones, worse than Unicorn even...

Actually, Jelly Woman sounds quite good. I'll have to track down a copy of Adventure Comics #488 to see her wobbling greatness in action.

I always thought Jelly Woman was a trifle derivative.

That didn't really work did it? What?

Sorry, you'll have to type louder I'm a trifle deaf.

Nope, still not working.

I'll go now.
