    He should keep a bottle of Rogain in a utility belt or something LOL

    Chust? I guess they didn’t have spell check back then. (Or an editor…..)

  3. Jeff Hebert says:

    He’s an evil German mastermind, so that’s supposed to be accented dialog. Of course, ALL villains back then were German masterminds.

  4. Sutter_Kaine says:

    How else would you spell “chust”?

  5. Dan says:

    Clearly he’s a german mastermind. Who else could invent scissors so efficient that they can cut off all his hair with one chop?

  6. TheNate says:

    Shave both sides and add Manic Panic, he’d really be a punk.

  7. X-stacy says:

    Is he really evil, or is he just trying to protect innocent apartment buildings and factories?

    Dan: You know the Germans always make good stuff.

    @ The Eric (8): Great! Now I have this stuck in my head.

    Now chust a minute there, Jeff. Some of them were Japanese evil masterminds – and even a Russian evil mastermind once! (Small superman story – he took Hitler and Stalin before the world court. This was before the US entered WW2.)

    As to the character of Samson himself – was it always the hair, or did the authors actually look at the history of the biblical Samson first? Among the other requirements for the vow which granted him his strength was no drinking wine; it’d be interesting to see a story where the villain took out the hero by tricking him into drinking a glass of Bordeaux or similar. From the date, I’d say this was probably before the CCA took off, so the drinking ought to have been allowed…

    @punkjay, is he Sanf “The Barber” Beefcake? 😉

  13. frankie says:

    No, his name is Sampson Chust. The editer didn’t notice that there was no comma after his name.

    Or just put it in a pony tail to make it that much easier for them to cut it….
