Even though I took my super-heroes very seriously when I was growing up, I did enjoy it when comic companies were able to poke fun at themselves. Marvel's Not Brand Ecch and the all-humor issue of What If? were fun reads. DC had Ambush Bug to point out the absurdities of a life in the DCU and as a comic character in general. I always got a kick out of his appearances and I loved watching Henry Winkler voicing him in the final episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Has he been back in comics recently? I'd love to see the Bug's reaction to the New 52.
