And that’s the end of Hanna Barbarian, though it seems to have worked out for her.

Nice one! Granted I tend to overthink such things. I mean, establishing an alternate timeline can be a bit tedious but when done well it not only tells an interesting story but saves you other headaches later (namely whenever history doesn’t quite work for your story line). Of course, I also have always favored the model where changing the past just creates a parallel timeline that coexists as an alternate reality as opposed to overwriting events in history but that just ruins the joke. XD Also… I think I once again proved why I have a hard time writing a nice, concise, funny strip. 😉

It’s understandable that someone who dropped out of school in seventh grade became a Villain due to the lack of other work options. What I don’t get is how he became a SUPER Villain, let alone an Above Average Anything…

Eh, I appreciate the value of book smart as well as the rest of us. But there are other smarts as well that book smarts alone doesn’t cover. In this case I would say a lot depends on *why* he ended up dropping out. One possibility is that his mutation was even then making it tricky for him to interact normally with other people but I could think of one or two other reasons in a pinch and I imagine the rest of us could too. 🙂

I imagine the super powers helped with him becoming a super villain. There are plenty of dumb super villains.

I think we just got a clue to the guys weakness….

Huh. I wonder why he let Hanna off so easily, or did he just expect the Huns to do his job for him?

Er..Mongols, not Huns. For some reason I was think Attila.

Maybe he knew it wouldn’t alter history too much to send a berserker villain into the same place a bunch of marauding murderers were tearing shit up?

To dick with the other baddies. You see how freaked out Pachydermis is. The Tin Can-man there not only can kick your ass, but he can also send it back in time. Anywhere anywhen from what we can tell. Hanna probably went threw hell when she figured that she was in the past with no chance of getting back. It was a good thing she met someone that helped her get through it.

#2 Son was rereading the Chronicles of Claw (and enjoying himself VERY much) and observed that in the background here
is a suit that looks a tad familiar (and has some nice pink accents (time warping?)). Maybe someone found it on a scrap heap (reduce – reuse – recycle)? Or maybe Defender X discovered that the dark side really does have cookies?

It’s possible that he had no choice. It’s not like any superhero community after the 1940s is going to be all that happy with someone who sets himself up as judge, jury and executioner (& even in the 40s they seemed to be trying to move away from that and were a lot more mellow then the 1930s pulp heroes had been!). Hero types like Spectre, Creeper or Punisher seemed to accepted because they had too much muscle to be taken down rather than because they were loved and I recall both Spiderman and Captain America, to their credit, going out of their way to try to take down killer heroes of that sort. (Punisher in Spidey’s case and Forge in Captain America’s case).
