Re: General Comics Trivia

I just doublechecked and it's actually the Impossible Woman and not Impossible Man who was the "dress", though given how Impossible Woman came to be that might be splitting hairs a little.

5 Stan Lee Resents
8 Invisible Woman
12 A dollar

 

7/14/2021 6:14 am  #789


Re: General Comics Trivia

Those three are correct. Looking back on the Impossible Woman scene (from the first Summer Spectacular), it's puzzling that the usually more demur Sue wasn't at least wearing underpants. Even when dresses aren't sentient, accidents happen in fashion shows. Even with the Canadian exchange rate Sim got a very good deal.

One question left!
