Radio-Active Man Vs. Radioactive Man




The Simpsons have been renewed for at least two more seasons, pushing them well past the 30-year mark.  While it isn't the must-see show for me that it was in its first five years or so, I still find myself laughing out loud a couple of times per episode.  It's a testament to the strength of the characters and world that Matt Groening created that the show has stood the test of time so well.

like you, the show is very adaptable. a 'reverse ' kind of Twilight Zone where anything DOES happen. ( I would have loved to have seen Atomic Mouse sitting and eating ,watching the fight from the sidelines.)

[As for the show itself, I would do an opening having Lisa at the blackboard, writing in place of Bart, "I will not steal Bart's lines" over and over.....and have Bart in music class playing the triangle for one note, in Lisa's place.]

That head on that body and with three fingers to boot! Only Thunderbunny can make that look work.

@Marc: Ross has obviously made it work on this one, too.

@Ross: Thank you-thank you-THANK YOU!!!! For finally granting my wish.

:-D

On the subject of cartoons, how about something featuring Young Justice or the cartoon versions of the Avengers. For once, it wouldn't even have to be inter-company. I'd love to see a cover of the Mike Sekowsky JLA vs. their Young Justice counter-parts, or one with Adam West, Keaton, Clooney, Affleck et. al vs. all of the Animated Batmen.

And thinking about the Sekowsky JLA, I wonder if anybody has ever done a version of the JLA #21 cover but instead of the JSA coming out of the smoke, it's the DCEU (movie) JLA. The caption, of course, would be: "Who the F**k are THOSE guys?!"

Nice bit of artistic license-taking, there. Hyphenating Chen Lu's alias so we'd know to root for the resident superhero of Springfield.

Ross said...

No license taken, the hyphen was there when I searched for a logo.

Really? Heh! Every other comic book website has his alias written without it. Whereas I thought it would've been similar to the difference between Steve Ditko's "Spider-Man" and Joe Simon's "Spiderman."

Is The Simpsons The American Doctor Who in longevity?

Why is he wearing Dazzlers dress anyway?

Now this is a crossover I really want to see.

I think Comic Book Guy would say "Finally" once it hit shelves.

@BrotherBarnes: yes, definitely.

@BrotherBarnes: maybe she outgrew it?

With Radioactive Man's (The Simpsons) "Up and atom!", maybe Atom Ant could meet Adam and the Ants. :)

Cary Comic said...

Or, failing that, he could meet the Atom (Ray Palmer) and Ant-Man (Hank Pym).

Have Ant-Man and Blue Beetle ever met on this blog? I couldn't see that match in the labels.

@ my namesake: I think they met behind the scenes at the first--and only--meeting of "Insects Incorporated" @ STF #988.
