Villain or View?

Galactus showing up to eat your planet is scary enough, but here's one of his relatives -- Numinus, another universal guiding spirit of that level in the Marvel Universe -- who's even worse:


Can anyone tell me why an ultra-powerful being with the power cosmic decided to host a daytime talk show? I don't know, but I don't like it, and apparently neither does Galactus:

Galactus and Numinus

You'd think he'd just be happy it was Whoopi Goldberg instead of Rosie O'Donnell popping up in N-Space to interview him, but apparently not so much.

(Edited on January 19 to say explicitly that Numiunus looks like Whoopi Goldberg.)

    Is that just me, or is that a spitting image of Whoopi Goldberg? It’s actually kinda creepy…

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    Yeah, that was kind of the point of the post — “Rosie” as in Rosie O’Donnell, “Villain or View” as in “The View”, the daytime talk show which Whoopi hosts, etc.

    I debated whether I should just put up a post that said “By all that’s good and right, why in the hell is Whoopi Goldberg one of the holders of the Power Cosmic?” and putting up the image, but I wanted to see if people would see the same thing I saw or if I was just, you know, nuts.

    My god… I wonder what happened to Numinus/Whoopie in Current marvel time lines….

    Yeah, I didn’t get the talk show gimmick. Maybe you should dumb the jokes down for the rest of us :-]

  5. Me says:

    …heh, another vote for “looks like Whoopi”.

    Jacknife, I don’t know. Don’t want to know. Please, please, do not tell me! =:-o

    Oh, you are SOOO pshittin’ me, here. NO WAY that is a real Marvel character. No, Nu-huh. Nyet. Nada. Negatory. Nope, I ain’t believing it, nossir, you can’t make me.

    Cripes, at least tell me this was during Assistant Editor’s Month, or something.

    I shit thee negatory, this is a bona fide Marvel super-villain. Things got a little crazy around there in the Seventies and Eighties.
