A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
That’s a really interesting chair, Supergirl. In fact, I’m not sure that that’s a chair at all. I think that’s just a pile of pillows on the floor.
And don’t worry, Supergirl, in a few years, your hair will be so curly you won’t even know what to do with it, so you’ll start wearing one of those super 80s sports headbands.
(Supergirl Costume Tally: 7. I’ve decided her cape is just tucked behind her.)
With that we conclude the penultimate page of the letter C! Come back tomorrow for the final set of C words The Super Dictionary thought were important enough to include for the benefit of (American) children everywhere!
Check out under the cut for today’s unchopped page!
Or tries to be. But this time it succeeds!
Well guess what, Superboy, Supergirl is way closer to being a cowgirl than you are to being a cowboy. She has a horse!
(This definition is in desperate need of a picture à la Jimmy Olsen in Arizona.)
That’s great and everything, Super Dictionary, I’m glad Lois keeps in contact with her extended family.
I’m just confused by one thing:
Why didn’t you use Superman and Supergirl for this definition? You know. Those two characters featured in this book who are actually cousins?
Just because they’re from another planet doesn’t invalidate their familial ties!
Good! Because Batgirl is brave!
Way braver than Supergirl is, anyway.
You know what would help your mysterious friend find your cottage, mysterious blonde? Giving a better description than “by the lake.”
But who is this mysterious blonde anyway? Black Canary? Supergirl? Jonna?!
We’ll never know.
Is she checking the crops for Pa Kent?
That’s awfully nice of her!
(Supergirl Costume Tally: still 7. I really like this costume, though. I wish it had made more appearances.)
That looks an awful lot like Superman to me. I mean, I guess it’s possible that Supergirl traveled to the 30th century to see if she’s faster than Superboy, but I just don’t think that’s very likely.
And I’m not really sure what Supergirl’s left leg is doing. It doesn’t look very comfortable, whatever’s going on with it.
(Supergirl Costume Tally: 7. We may have reached the maximum, but we have a few hundred more pages to go! And seven is still a lot of different outfits for one character.)
Yeah okay, fair enough.
This dictionary does its job best when it keeps it short and to the point.
While this final definition is pretty disappointing on humor-levels, at least it’s educational! And you can always go back a few pages and look at Hal buying a singing duck, Flash threatening to probably throw people into the speed force, or Superbaby throwing a tantrum and eating a sign! Or you can just look under the cut.
As promised, I’ll have another page up for you today!
Check out under the cut to look at today’s full page!
I didn’t know that Kryptonian telescopic vision was literally telescopic! And that’s pretty clever of Supergirl, being able to pinpoint Superman as you circle the world at super speed!
(Supergirl Costume Tally: 7! In a drastic departure from the hotpants or the skirt, we have Supergirl in a much more Superman-like costume!)
