I dunno, Jon, I think I have to come in as either Mantis or Ms Marvel, but the options for chixors are kind of slim among the Avengers.

Laurel (Laurel), Saturday, 17 February 2007 18:58 (fifteen years ago) link

i owned both original brother power comics too, but i sold them when i sold my collection :(


"Brother Power was originally a mannequin abandoned in an empty tailor's shop. The shop was taken over by hippies Nick Cranston and Paul Cymbalist, who dressed up the dummy in Paul's wet and bloodied "hip threads" to keep them from shrinking, having been attacked by Hound Dawg and other war hawks. Forgotten for months, but eventually struck by lightning, Brother Power was brought to life and endowed with super power and speed.

Shortly after his creation, Brother Power was kidnapped by the "Psychedelic Circus". After escaping, he was fixed up and given a face by another hippie named Cindy, and attempted to run for United States Congress. His misadventures with the establishment led to finding work and encouraging other hippies to do so, eventually getting hired by the J.P. Acme Corporation just as it was taken over by the wicked Lord Sliderule. Brother Power's ingenuity still made the assembly line run more efficiently. Brother Power was last seen being shot into space on orders from Governor Ronald Reagan, after trying to prevent the sabotage of a rocket launch by Mad Dawg and his gang, knowing it would be blamed on hippies."

"as a mutant, dazzler has the power to transmute light into sound"

this sentence appears virtually intact at least once in every issue

I dunno if geographical is the best way to go here, surely Noize Bored is actually the X-Men?? Scorned and hated by a society that does not understand their awesome power etc. Which would make the Freaky Trigger/poptimist people the Avengers (if we did DC they'd be the Justice Society by now, I think.)

Also, the moderator request threads where it was finally decided to make the boards reg only = "Civil War"!!
