Still way under the weather…

…so all I’ve got today is Jack Kirby’s embodiment of Death from the New Gods, the Black Racer:

Only Kirby could take something as potentially goofy-looking as the Black Racer and make it…well, still kinda goofy-looking, but with a good portion of kick-ass, too. If your embodiment of Death is a guy in armor on skis who flies, well, the only way you’re gonna sell it to the reader is to just throw yourself completely into it. And by God, Kirby gave us the coolest flying-armored-Death-on-skis that has ever been seen, before or since.

So, the Black Racer. Cool character, or coolest character?
