When I think of super hero's I usually think of Superman, Spiderman, Batman-- you know, the strong manly type. But I found part of a comic book recently in some stuff that was in my parent's garage and it had the strangest "super hero" featured inside. As the picture suggests, his name is "The Bouncing Boy." Huh? The comic book I found was this one. Inside it featured the marriage of the Bouncing Boy to Duo Damsel (need I ask that we skip the threesome jokes?) As I came across this all I could think of was one thing. Who comes up with this stuff? Maybe it's me, but if I'm a super-villain, somehow I doubt a guy who can bounce is going to scare me all that much. I mean, if I'm trying to think up some cool superhero to add to the superhero pantheon, at what point does the Bouncing Boy come to mind? Is this after Acne Man and Wonder Bra Woman have been used up? And when it comes to fighting Bouncing Boy I'd be thinking, Hmmm, I'm a pretty fair hand at dodge ball, all I gotta do is get out of the way. But it is kind of fun to look at. I'd love it if anyone else out there remembers any odd super-hero's from the old comic books and wants to share your recollections. That's what I'm here for.
