(From “Black Cobra” number 1, 1954. Yes, 1954, people! And I think he also anticipated the Valley Girl dialect with it at the same time.)

    Well, first ever use of it as an onomotopeia, I’d guess…

    Only in 1954 can a super hero named “Black Cobra” be a white guy in blue sweats.

  3. Dan, that one made me laugh right out loud, thank you!
