(From "Master Comics" number 51, 1944.)
I don’t know, I kind of like the idea of superheroes going around saying “Stop that! that’s a crime!” Sort of like SuperNanny or something. This whole beat-them-with-my-bare-hands sort of thing seems so touchy feely.
What is he…Pollution Control Man? Political Correctness Man? Mommy Man? If I am reading the balloon in the lower right corner correctly, all the guy was doing is burning paper. But then, the guy is OBVIOUSLY a career criminal… look at that neatly trimmed hair, pullover sweater and tie. Heaven forbid, a superhero go after actual villains. 😉
In Bulletman’s defense, the page was actually about not burning paper during a war supplies drive. I think they were getting people to save it up to donate to the war effort, like rubber and nylons and such. I wanted to crop that dialog out but I needed the hand and the funny bullet helmet to make it funnier 🙂
I had actually failed to notice the phallic imagery of the helmet until you mentioned the helmet thing, Senor Jeff. Thank you for making every Bulletman panel that much dirtier.
