So Sayeth the Odinson: Questions about Comic Books that make Me go Hmmm…

Greetings from the Odinson,

I have been reading comic books for as long as I can remember and over these many years I have contemplated many questions.  Here are but a few.

Questions about Comic Books that make the Odinson go Hmmm…

If Jericho made contact and took control of someone’s body, but then Deadman takes possession of that same body, who would have control?

If the Absorbing Man, Parasite, and Rogue all touched each other simultaneously, what would happen?

If there is a Batman Who Laughs, is there also a Joker Who Broods?

Can the Omega Effect of Darkseid affect Doctor Manhattan?

Can Deadpool survive being thrown into the sun?

What exactly does it sound like when doves cry?

When Superman was in his Blue energy form in the ‘90s, did Kryptonite still affect him? (I really don’t remember.)

Can the touch of Man-Thing burn Daredevil?

If Rob Liefeld draws a comic book written by Brian Michael Bendis does that mean the 7th Seal of the Apocalypse has broken?

How many variant covers is too many?

Do you think Lobo and Orion could be friends?

Can the Saint of Killers kill Doctor Manhattan?

Jonah Hex, Frank Castle, Jesse Custer (No powers), Snake Plissken, Nick Fury, and Stone Cold Steve Austin walk into a bar.  Who is the last S.O.B. standing?

How did Betamax survive until 2016?

Remember in the 1980s when toxic waste and radioactive chemicals was a big deal? From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Return of the Living Dead to the Toxic Avenger, it seemed like toxic waste was the crux of all problems.  Today we hardly hear anything about it.  Did they fix the problem?

Mesmero and the Purple Man in a staring contest – who wins?

What would happen to the Grey Gargoyle if he looked at Medusa?

Does anyone have Shia LaBeouf’s number?  I forgot what it is exactly I’m supposed to do?

Since Daredevil’s other four senses are all amped up to the Nth degree, including his sense of touch, which he uses to read newsprint with his fingers, then every time he gets punched in the face, shouldn’t the pain be amplified a dozen times over? 

Are Luke Cage’s eyes bullet proof?

Will Aquaman eat a tuna fish sandwich?

Would Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam’s lives have turned out better if Bugs Bunny had taken that darn left turn at Albuquerque?

When the Flash flips the switch, can he get into bed before the lights go out?

Can Poison Ivy influence the Swamp Thing?

If Kitty Pryde phased through Vision while he was intangible, would she muck up his circuitry? 

How hard would the Sub-Mariner laugh if he was attacked by Hydro Man?

If Hercules can defeat Zeus and Zeus can manhandle the Hulk, then how come Hulk can beat up Hercules?

If Bizarro is Superman’s opposite, then who is Ultraman’s opposite? Superman?

Do you think Rapunzel, Medusa, Sindel, and Starfire all get their hair done at the same place?

You’ve heard of the hair club for men, right?  What club does Hector Hammond, MODOK, and the Leader belong to?

Can Saitama knock out Frieza with one punch?

What if the Blob met John Carpenter’s The Thing?

Can Power Pack counter the power of Graviton?

Why haven’t Sandman and Quicksand joined forces?    

Who would win an arm-wrestling contest – Hellboy or Gully?

What would happen if the lightning of SHAZAM struck Livewire?

Beta Ray Bill, Steve Rogers, Eric Masterson, and Jane Foster have all proven worthy of being able to lift Thor’s hammer.  Can they pull Excalibur from the stone?

What would happen if somebody was bitten by a vampire, zombie, and a werewolf?

These are just some of the questions that make the Odinson go hmmm.  Maybe someday I shall get answers.

This is Odinson bidding thee farewell

      Yes, Dakota. I am currently working on the third book in Autumn’s trilogy. I hope to have it out by the end of this year or very early in 2022.
