Another Comic Idea that Amuses Only Me.

I've determined that a comic that I'd really like to see is Alfred and Ma Hunkel teaming up to run a domestic agency. To hire out maids, butlers and housekeepers to up and coming young superheroes.

It'd include tips like how to properly tend for a secret lair when you're the only person allowed in. Seminars on the pros and cons of robotic household assistance, and what in the world gets THOSE stains out of spandex.

Sometimes I suspect I'm weird.

    Anything that would combine Alfred with Ma Hunkel would be delightful.

    Nah, it's not just you. My friends and I come up with stuff like that all the time. X-Men stories where they're only doing boring everyday stuff, or "What does the Marvel/DC universe look like from the perspective of someone who does something ordinary like (X) for a living?"

    Now that's an idea I can support. Now all we need is someone to actually write and draw it!

    As the baseline from which normalcy is derived I can emphatically state you're perfectly average...

    Have YOU been injured by the vigilante activities of your boss?At the law firm of Gowger and Sleeze, we specialize in obtaining due compensation for butlers, housemaids, gardeners and other household servants who suffer injury due to the careless actions of their crimefighting employers. Hey, most of these bastards are millionaires, they can afford it!
    Hear these testimonials from actual clients:

    "My drunken employer's Mento helmet sent a psionic blast through the kitchen, knocking me unconscious, rupturing my spleen and causing my souffle to fall. Then his son came charging through in the form of a green buffalo and trampled me into a pulp. I woke up in intensive care. But Gowger & Sleeze got me fair compensation, and now I can retire to the Island of Kooeykooeykooey! Thank you, Gowger & Sleeze!"

    "My master's insistence on maintaining an underground crimefighting lair beneath the manor resulted in horrendous devastation during the Gotham City Earth quake. I was buried in the rubble and could quite easily have perished. Thanks to Gowger & Sleeze, I received a sizable settlement for emotional distress, as well as punitive damages, and, most importantly, full custody of Robin."

    "I dedicated virtually my entire life to my mercenary employer, following him around the globe on perilous missions. I even offered to adopt his daughter, but he refused. Then, after he was de-aged and developed amnesia, he abruptly terminated my employment. Now he's making millions capturing monsters for cheesy infomercial television, and I'm left without even a pension fund. But with Gowger & Sleeze representing me, I'm confident I'll collect what's rightfully mine."


    Don't let a vigilante employer get away with exploiting you! Call 1-800-UPY-RSIR for a free consultation.

    They could have an intercompany crossover with Jarvis.

    You know, there are quite a few wealthy supervillains out there. One wonders what a villainous domestic staff is like? Are they all robots, cyborg gorillas, and mind-controlled zombie types, or does (say) the Red Skull have a sinister Nazi butler waiting for him at home somewhere? Surely they can't use mere run-of-the-mill henchmen as domestics, right?

    I'd pay good money to read the story of Alfred's epic struggle with Ras al Ghul's heretotfore unknown butler.
