Avengers Assemble

Today I noticed a very tiny beetle crawling on my shirt. After a few mintues of playing with it followed by a few minutes of fearing the necessity of an exterminator, I flicked the little guy or girl away. S/he reminded me a little bit of the Blue Beetle, that DC Superhero who was a member of the Justice League of America for a little while.

I don't actually remember what Blue Beetle's powers were, but I do know that nobody thought he was cool. I think he invented things, and that's about it. He was blue and had yellow goggles. Beetle's appearance doesn't exactly strike fear into the hearts of the cowardly and superstitions. I feel a bit sorry for him. I mean, even Aquaman had fans.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

So I'm reading this biography of Joan of Arc now. I am a total slacker.

I need to crown somebody king, like, right now. We could skip the whole being burned alive thing and I could be canonized in a couple years.

St. Joan II, Electric Boogaloo
