    So, if you fling a Blanket over a Hero named Hydroman, does that explain the origin of the term “Wet Blanket”? 😀

    Methinks we have found a worthy successor to Bulletman for the title of Dumbest Superhero Ever.

    I guess Khan had to work his way up to Jim Kirk. Sort of a farm team system for villains. Hydroman is the hero used by the farm team for the farm team that feeds the farm team for the majors.

    I can’t blame Khan for wanting to cover up that costume. Although, judging by the flesh-tone legs, it could the the absence of costume he’s covering up….

    Alright. Now that you have the blanket over him, it’s time to hit Hydroman with the bar of soap wrapped up in a towel.

    I totally missed that it was Khan. My favorite bit, and what makes this one of my all-time favorite Random Panels, is the intro:

    “As Hydroman is temporarily blinded by the flying rabbits…”

    I wish every story started out that way.

    “As Oliver Twist was temporarily blinded by the flying rabbits … ”
    “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, as we were all temporarily blinded by the flying rabbits … ”
    “We the People of the United States of America, in order to form a more perfect union free of blinding by flying rabbits … ”
    “It was a dark and stormy night, and I was temporarily blinded by flying rabbits … ”

    It makes ANYTHING better!

    @Myro – The official blanket party weapon of choice is a bar of soap in a sock. A towel is too hard to manage since the handle is a bit bulky but a thick wool or cotton sock in just right.

    Not that I have any experience with it.

    Mr.MikeK (10): Thanks, that makes much more sense.
