    Yeah, that was a pretty trippy episode of Hogan’s Heroes. No way would I have guessed that Sergeant Schultz had a superhero alter-ego.

    Not Black Adam vs not Capt. Jack Harkness from the comic not by Grant Morrison from an idea not by Michael Moorcock, film to be directed not by Kenneth Branagh screenplay not by Neil Gaiman.

    I recognized those “jazz hands” right away:

    No complaints about perspective and attention to detail, but a definite 11/10 on the cheese-o-meter.

    Would the lightning coming from his hands count as “threaded-ting”?

  5. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Stop it! That tickles!

    (Looking more closely, the soldier’s rather limited reaction may be due to the lightning missing him entirely. Flying dude needs to go back to barn-hitting school.)

    So a WWII guy with a tommy gun is taking on a campy vinyl clad man with zappy fingers.

    Tommy Gun there at least has it pointed towards where it might be pretty effective, though he seems not too well balanced. Still, if the recoil doesn’t cause him to fall down, I’m betting on him vs. Panto Alien.

    SFC must not have read much adventure in decades, judging by the blurb.

    I think the expression on Flying Sinbad is one of fear, not aggression: one of his wings has lost all aerodynamic stability and he’s about to death spiral thousands of feet to the ground.

    The culture war moves up a notch as death squads who think it’s still 1940 are sent after cabaret performers.

    @JJYoyo: so he’s lightning-pissing himself?

  11. fred Says:

    Capt. Jack, Capt. Jack, just reach down, put your finger throught the ring on the end of his Santas’ elf boot, pull it off and hit him across the face with it.

    The title could also be read \\IARRIaRS.
