    The Miserable Green Giant was a tinned foods marketing disaster.

    ‘…No, not at all. Maybe it would be a clichĂ© if he was a LITTLE green man from space but this is a BIG green man from space – and look, I didn’t give him antennae see.’

    My brain hurts from entering Star Wars ™ territory for a comment.

    “Take myself too seriously, you say? No, not at all . . . well, maybe just a little.”

  5. Ryan Says:

    The Empire waist and slit skirt are bold fashion choices when paired with shoulder boarded capes, but those jeweled boots are the thing. If you are going to go visiting planet to planet, go big.

    @Ryan “when you see the universe, the universe sees you.”

  7. Francis Boyle Says:

    Bet that thing can’t even undo screws.

  8. B. Chiclit Says:

    @Ryan—The boots, however stylish, are really just an attempt to hide the fact that Mr. Green Genes has a serious case of Popeye arms in his calves.

    No wonder my spaceship has been misfiring. He stole one of the spark plugs!

    It would appear our visitor took a sartorial cue from classic Earth television.

  11. Anna T. Says:

    Our green friend here was clearly trying to bring a Greco-Roman aesthetic to space, but didn’t quite succeed.

    I’m not sure what the magic wand thing is, though.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Ryan: Braniac is looking particularly fabulous, isn’t he?

    Is that skirt of his slit all the way up to his belt? If so, he’s one strong wind away from becoming “Flash” Gordon.

  13. Bibliomancer Says:

    I prefer this Green Man.

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    He’s got a Brissle accent and a ‘liddle friend’ to help you cross the road safely.

  15. fred Says:

    What appears to be a rising breeze is probably what confirms the visitors gender.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Ryan: I’m not sure if it’s shoulder boards on his cape, or a curtain rod — as I see @Lillie Awesome beat me to commenting.

    @BC: obviously ignores arm day. And maybe the green skin is due to spinach?

    @Tat: implies probable evil in another role, dunnit?

    @Bruce: we can only hope for Cosmic Underpants.

    How about this chap?

  17. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Perhaps he can hook up with the Green Girl?

    @GSS ex-noob: at first I thought the green went all the way to the belt, but upon closer inspection of the expanded picture there’s some uncertainty. There still exists room for hope, and underpants.

    B. Chiclit: be fair. On his home planet, Popeye legs may be the height of masculinity.

  18. MakkaPakka Says:

    “Here, hold this. It’s an earthling fashion accessory. We call it dynamite.”

  19. Outis Says:

    All right, this is truly glorious and meme-worthy even if it’s from 1946, no less. “Serious alien is serious”. Good show Sir!
