I picture Baron Winters and Captain Carrot always bickering with each other, like Green Arrow and Hawkman used to do.

Here’s a colorful cast of crazy characters from the May 1983 DC Comics retailer order form…click on the pic below for a larger image:

Now that’s a Justice League line-up I’d like to see.

I was trying to come up with some funny dialogue or a humorous caption for the above picture, but my fever-addled brain is having none of it, so you folks go ahead and give it a shot. My favorite gets…oh, I don’t know, a big fat plug for their webpage or whatever on my site, for all the good that’ll do you. Just keep it…somewhat clean, is all I ask. (Both the submission and the website you’d like me to plug.)

BONUS: house ad from Superboy #189 (August 1972):

  • Ummm…
    Starfire: “Hey, Swamp Thing! Your Man-Thing is missing! Teehee!”
    Robin: “Pretty slick!”

    I’m very sorry.
    And I would like to plug my girlfriend’s culinary blog: http://loveaffaironaplate.blogspot.com/
    It is the best Polish food blog ever, I’m sure you’ll agree, Mr. Sterling. She might disown me after finding out I linked to it after such a crappy joke, but I’m taking risks here.

  • Looks like Robin is mime.

  • Jonathan L. Miller says:

    Dream Girl: But..where’s Superman?
    Wildfire: Doin’ something a lot more important than this, probably.

  • Philip says:

    I have neither a caption nor a website, but the little “aw, shucks” thing that Firestorm is doing, makes me have a little crush on him.

  • A.L. Baroza says:

    You know Starfire’s thinking threesome. Robin too, probably. They’ve heard that Swampy’s packing some pretty big yams.

    Actually, you could come up with dirty captions for all of those characters. Except for Batman, because he’s a grumpus.

    Inner Dialog

    King Arthur: “Just six more months and this maxi-series gig will be wrapped up.”

    Firestorm: “Geez… that chick’s costume did not age well.”

    Liberty Belle: “Geez… that guy’s costume will not age well.”

    Swamp Thing: “I this new British writer is totally screwing up my chance to get a toy in The Super Powers Collection. I gotta get a new agent…”

    Starfire: “I wonder if Dick knows I use his razor to shave my legs…”

    Robin: “I wonder if Kori knows I use her razor to shave my legs…”

    Cyborg: “Yeah, I’m angry, but I have an IQ of 170, so I am not going to say ‘jive sucka’ no matter what that script says.”

    Batman: “And how come Batman doesn’t dance anymore? Remember the Batusi?”

    Baron Winters: “If Night Force finds out I left Wintersgate Manor for this photo shoot, they’re gonna kill me.”

    Captain Carrot: “Would it even be possible for this guy to smell more like moth balls?”

    Dream Girl: “I wonder if Robin knows I use his razor to shave my legs…”

    Wildfire: “And if Cyborg says, “I miss my legs” just one more time, I’m going to punch him right in the nuts. I swear to God, I’ll do it!”

  • Andres says:

    “You know, after you go vegetarian you won’t want this bird anymore.”

  • TomO. says:

    Swamp Thing: Well, hello there! You must be Koriand’r.

    Starfire: What makes you so sure?

    Swamp Thing: Because I can see us waking up together Tamaran and the next day and the next day…

  • Sean Murphy says:

    Robin: Sure, we are DC’s most popular book today, but three decades from now that guy’s TPBs will still be in print.

  • Jack Fear says:

    Is it petty of me to be appalled by the piss-poor paste-up job that leaves Robin and Cyborg leaning on… nothing?

  • Mikester says:

    Probably wasn’t clear enough…blame the fever. The pic I want the caption for is Swampy w/Starfire and Robin. (Though I appreciate MrJM’s submission!)

  • I reworked my crappy entry into a stupid picture, because Robin leaning on nothing bothered me. http://i56.tinypic.com/3167pn8.jpg

  • Mudpack says:

    I can’t believe you’re doing the “invisible bookcase thing” while Swamp Thing is wiping himself with my hair.

  • Casie says:

    Starfire: Swamp Thing, would you be a doll…I think I stepped in some glass.
    Swamp Thing: You know I cured Superman right?
    Starfire: Yeah, yeah. The glass honey.

  • Nat Gertler says:

    Swampy: Thanks, babe. That feels so much better than toilet paper.

  • Ha! says:

    You might find this entertaining:


    a few years ago, the local newspaper reprinted the first 12 or so issues of spiderman in little booklet inserts.

  • Ha! says:

    Someone could get lots of mileage out of all the adds on there

  • Julius Brown says:

    No, I don’t really know him, Dick. We went out for drinks once and he kept wanting me to eat the potatoes growing out of his back.

  • Troy Wilson says:

    Swamp Thing: Hey kids. Want…a tuber? First one’s…free.

    Starfire: Heck, yes!

    Robin: Uh, Kori, we’re slated for that anti-drug special, remember?

    Starfire: Aw, shit.

  • Tony Tiger says:

    Swamp Thing: “Meh…alien yeast infection.”
    Starfire: “Is that a tuber?”
    Robin: “Is that a tuber?”
