Captain Hero and Super-Dagwood



When I was a kid I wondered why characters like Jughead Jones or Dagwood Bumstead were depicted so lean and lanky despite how often they were shown chowing down on burgers or giant sandwiches.  The answer was clear of course - they burned off all of those extra calories by fighting crime as costumed vigilantes in their spare time!  It all makes sense now.

Superdagwood? Is that real?
Did Dagwood use a Kandorian tailor? His costume looks like a cross been Nightwing and Flamebird.

Sorry that should have said a cross between...

But, really, that's a great cover.

I agree with the Anonymice. I especially loved the shot Dirty Demon laid out on the ground! He was my favorite of Capt. Hero's Rogues Gallery. There's just something about a renegade dry cleaner that's more frightening than any mad scientist or alien world conqueror from outer space.

Re: Dagwood and Jughead eating a lot and staying thin - I always figured they just had that kind of metabolism. I know a couple of people who are like that.

How about Jughead vs. Wimpy in "Battle for the Burgers" or "The Ultimate Burger Battle?"

Those two are members of my "Burger Masters" team, check the archives to see the cover!

They seem like great candidates for the Legion of Awesome!

You know, I'd like to see Jughead/Captain Hero meet the Captain Hero from Drawn Together.
And whup his ass.
