Snapper Carr Appreciation!!!

It occurs to me that certain people lack a proper appreciation for one of my favorite comic characters ever, Lucas "Snapper" Carr!

...

Yes, I said Snapper Carr. Anyway. I feel, as is my hypocritical right, that I must amend this atrocity by using this week to highlight the many reasons to like Snapper Carr!

Okay, maybe not the WHOLE week, but at least until I get bored!

Today I want to showcase one time in which Snapper was actually, legitimately, cool: Hourman #8. Wherein Snapper Carr gets to save everyone! With food stuffs!

A brief bit of background, everyone's acting odd and cranky and ill-tempered and somehow, Snapper subsequently figures out that there's a demon involved and messing with people. This leads to:



Amateur Demon Summoning! Via Ketchup!

Now, naturally summoning the demon leads to a bit of trouble. Hourman, by the way, is too busy to help as he's got a crisis of his own. But Snapper has a plan! Involving cheesecake!



So, the demon does indeed like the cheesecake, but wonders what the point of all this is. Snapper explains, using some career counseling 101:



Which leads to a nice happy new friend! And a lesson in homophones!



So see, Snapper summoned a demon, talked it into a job change, and got a new friend! All while wearing a Blue Devil tanktop! Snapper is GREAT!

Oh and in honor of this being my 600th post here on Pretty Fizzy Paradise, I'm going to add a bonus image for everyone. The single greatest Snapper Carr T-shirt ever (from Hourman 10):



Good night everybody!

    You're right. That's a wonderful T-Shirt.

    (I almost said fantastic, but realised that the other adjective fit better.)

    Ooh, I look forward to this. Snapper has always seemed like the kind of character I'd like, but I never knew much about him.

    That's the first time a demon summoning has ever made me hungry, though.

    Damn! this is one of the most bizzare/sureal/cool excepts I've seen! DAMN!:)

    Wonderfish: a while back in BATMAN
    Joker summoned Etigan
    All would have gone well
    But the plan went all to Hell!
    A lesson for amateur Demon summoners I have to tell
    Let the paint dry before casting the damn spell!
    Or be knocked around pell mell you shall!

    It's fun to channel Etigan hehe;)

    Off for my copy of WW III see thee!

    Snapper is comfortable as hell with himself if he can walk around in that.

    Anyway, kinda like Rick Jones about the same time in Captain Marvel, Snapper became funny and interesting and upstaged the title character a bit too much, and then bam! Cancelled. Maybe he needs to be sent to the JSA or something.

    You know I would by a entire line of Snapper Carr t-shirts... best designs about super-heroes and villains that I ever saw.

    Snapper is an idiot! There, I've said it. He runs around SNAPPING HIS FINGERS for God's sake, and seems to feel that this makes him a legitimate help to the Justice League! Gah! He probably draws pictures of Hal Jordan with little hearts on them!

    He wears a Wonder Woman t-shirt in public!

    However...(grumbling to herself) summoning a demon with ketchup is...almost...awesome. Until the demon probably bit his head off, because he couldn't take one more minute of...SNAPPING HIS FINGERS!

    When you said he pacified a demon through cheesecake...

    I thought you meant the chick in tube top.

    Sorry.

    For more of Snapper being awesome (and wearing better t-shirts), there's the later half of Young Justice.

    Yeah, that was my initial presumption as well - silly me! I wonder: any chance it was meta-textual?

    Lucas "Snapper" Carr is a fictional character in the DC Comics universe, most famous as a supporting character to the superhero team the Justice League of America (JLA). He has often been referred to as the team's mascot. Snapper Carr, along with the Justice League, first appears in The Brave and the Bold #28, written by Gardner Fox and drawn by Mike Sekowsky. As the JLA could not have the sidekicks of all its members occasionally wandering through its secret headquarters, but needed a character to whom the reader could relate, the group needed a distinct character not associated with the home town of any of its members.[citation needed] In order to rationalize that an ordinary person could become an honorary member of the JLA, he had to be important to them at the moment of that group's formation

    When the Justice League of America faces the threat of Starro, a giant alien starfish with mind-control powers, young Lucas Carr — called "Snapper" for his penchant for snapping his fingers — is immune to Starro's attacks, by the good fortune of his just having put lime on the lawn. It is Green Lantern who recalls that various sea invertebrates are susceptible to lime, and by these means, Starro is defeated
