Great Moments in Bad Comics: Daredevil!! In a FAT Suit.


Here's a panel From Amazing Spider-Man #287, one of the seemingly interminable Gang War storyline. A recently "Born Again" Daredevil is seen here trying to teach Spider-Man complicated moral lessons by posing as the Kingpin and allowing Spider-Man to literally punch his face off in a positively Weisinger-esque hoax sequence. Not one of either heroes' finest moments, but truly a great moment in bad comics.

OMG, I have to de-lurk for this.

I was just re-reading this very issue, and had forgotten the sheer ridiculousness of this scene.

Written by Jim Owsley, who has done MUCH better work. Well, obviously. . . but seriously, I like Owsley.

A bad, bad comic. . .
