It‘s Election Day here in the U.S., so what better day to learn about 1973 DC Comics superhero The Prez?
The quote on the top of the right page says, “One thing bothers me—if the clocks aren‘t on time, how do we know when it‘s election day?” 😂

Paid about a buck for the book and 3 for the bookmark. I‘m admittedly not a huge Buffy fan (I prefer the movie) but I thought the wooden bookmark was too awesome to pass up.

I love this book some truly odd heroes in here. I love stuff like this and I‘m always looking for quirky comics to add to my collection. Looks like I have another one to add to the want list now 😉

vivastory @BookishFeminist He is basically a copycat of wolverine's super powers. The best thing about him is definitely his name. 3y

Zippo, according to accompanying text "Balancing on carborundum wheels and equipped with a below-the-belt exoskeleton outfitted with a powerful compressed-air engine, Zippo turns into a veritable human meteor, traveling at ground speeds of as much as 65 miles an hour." The tagged book is an encyclopedia of superheroes who didn't work out so well.

I think there's no room for new superheroes. Everything good has been done already. Debuting in 1940, Madam Fatal is "a mix of the films Taken and Mrs Doubtfire"...
