Lead Pipe Alert!

Last year, I posted something celebrating when Kyle whacked Hal with a lead pipe.

As I said then, I love these sorts of scenes. When everything else failed, and the hero doesn't really have a prayer of winning but still tries one last bit of defiance. Usually through whacking.

Well Diamondrock told me about All-Star Squadron #35, which has a scene that actually makes the Red Bee cool to me:

He hit Baron Blitzkrieg with a 2x4.

The RED BEE hit BARON BLITZKRIEG with a 2x4.

And it has a comedic sound effect! "Whomp!"

Dude! I instantly love this character.

...shame about what happens next. But at least he goes out being the guy who awesomely whomped Blitzkrieg with a 2x4.

There are worse legacies. :-)

    It's true. Hitting people over the head always makes for a good time. I don't know what happens to the Red Bee, but I don't imagine that it's anything good.

    Poor poor Red Bee.

    What happens next? I always wondered how he went to Bee Heaven (since he appears in Starman as one of the Dearly Departed). I can't believe you wouldn't scan those panels and show us. I'm crying inside.

    It sounds silly to say now, but the fate of the Red Bee was one of the biggest shocks in my comics reading experience up to that point. (I'd probably been reading for about 7 years when it was published.) The story (and Baron Blitzkrieg) made quite an impression on me.

    10 bucks says the JSA put that on his statue in the JSA Museum.

    Every single appearance I've seen this guy make has been awesome and yet nothing has ever been able to distract me from his sleaves.

    Pink guaze? What the hell were you thinking, Raleigh?!

    I like marvel movies, but comics really sucks they are boring.
