Independence Day Blow-Out Finale!!!

Cap has some awesome villains- Red Skull, Crossbones, Batroc, and the Serpent Society to name a few. Cap also has his fair share of stupid villains, like Trump the evil stage magician or The Tumbler the evil... tumbler. With his amazing ROOSTER powers, I'm guessing the Battling Bantam falls in the latter category.

I'm 99% positive that Blistik is a cold sore remedy.

Free Spirit got her powers when she was experimented on by the evil feminist Superia; a side effect of the experiment made Spirit attracted to men and that's how she became a superheroine. When I type it out like that, it doesn't sound offensive at all!

You can tell this is from the 1990's because EVERYONE in the '90's but on a goofy suit of armor at one point or another.

Very stirring. Of course, it was more stirring when the same motif was used for Superman #75 a few years earlier, but whatever.

Ah, Rob Liefeld. First, notice how everyone's positioned so he doesn't have to draw feet. Second, he's blocked the scene carefully so he only has to draw half as many hands as there are characters depicted.

You know, I never noticed before, but Crossbones is a perfect stand-in for nWo era Hulk Hogan. Look at his posture in the background- I can almost hear Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile" in the air.

This is how Glen Beck sees Obama.

Happy Fourth of July everyone!
