I’ll pretty much put together a blog post about any stupid thing.

So sometime between the release of Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #122 in 1969 and today:

…the previous owner of a copy of that very comic decided Jimmy Olsen needed a snazzier look more appropriate for the modern gentleman. And thus, with the gentle application of a ballpoint pen, Mr. Olsen went from snoozy:

…to groovy:

Sure, it’s a little on the bluish side, but in the Superman comics, whose hair isn’t? Well, aside from Lana’s. And Perry’s. And Lex’s. Well, young Lex.

By the way, have I mentioned I have a moustache category on my site? All the cool sites do.

NOTE: Moustachioed copy acquired in a collection on Thursday. Non-moustachioed copy from the Vast Mikester Comic Archives, and shown for comparison. I’m spelling this out because someone’s gonna ask why I drew on a copy of this comic for a blog post. Someone probably still will. I’ll bet that person won’t have a cool moustache.

I mean, just look at it.

from The Return to the Planet of the Apes episode “Invasion of the Underdwellers” (1975)

A clever title for a post about fan-designed Robin costumes goes here.

So anyway, I was looking through a copy of Batman #259 (Nov-Dec 1974) when I saw a special feature wherein readers submitted their own new costume ideas for Robin.

This one, frankly, isn’t too different from the standard model:

…but seems to be given just that little bit of extra…somethin’-somethin’ to push Robin over into “exotic dancer” territory. Perhaps this redesign should be kept in mind if the Batman burlesque stage show ever comes to pass.

Now this costume (by a noted fandom figure and author) is pure awesome:

Not so much for the costume, which is pretty much just giving Robin some limb coverage, but for this fantastic power ‘stache:

I am certain it is within Grant Morrison’s power to somehow squeeze this version of Robin into the forthcoming Batman, Inc. series. WE KNOW YOU CAN DO IT, GRANT.

Yes, this is really what I’m posting about today.

For some reason, I found myself oddly amused and compelled by Chuck “Bouncing Boy” Taine’s moustache, first appearing late in Vol. 3 of Legion of Super-Heroes.

I was unsure about it at first, but ultimately I think it gives Chuck a little more character, just a touch more realism. It makes him look more like a plain ‘ol guy, you know…comfortable with himself and not at all imposed by all the perfect physiques in the skin-tight outfits runnin’ around him.

I was certain there was a shot of him using his bouncing powers with moustache, but I can’t find it at the moment. That’s okay, because I’m sure it can’t match how I’m picturing in my mind – a thin strip of hair, stretched across his surface like a furry equator.

Keep rockin’ that ‘stache, Chuck.
