Household Hints From Captain Universe

bbwhitestachehead In "Marvel Spotlight" #10, "meek housewife" Ann Dodgson Stanford is transformed into the heroic Captain Universe. And she uses her newfound abilities like a bold housewife.

Y'know, Storm Boy also "sprays forth in a most uncharacteristic manner." I've told him he oughta get that shit checked out but he never listens to me.

I wonder how many children read this comic and then turned a fire extinguisher on their little brothers. Don't try this at home, kids! Or if you do, stick with an aerosol-based desert topping.

(This scene takes place in a gym, so don't get any dirty ideas about "Rooney's trainers." 'Cause, eww. )

Ann's twin sister Clare knows all about her obsession with cleanliness. Check it out!

Here, Clare fixes the window she smashed through a couple of minutes before. Not because it's the right thing to do, mind you. It's just that she knows Ann is going to moan and complain about her broken window and all the glass shards in her expensive carpeting and frankly, Clare is in no mood for that shit. Gosh, it's almost like they're married!

Tomorrow: more domestically-inspired heroics from Ann Dodgson Stanford!

Why can't I have an aerosol window cleaner that envelops my assalaint into an impenatrable energy cocoon? no fair.

You'd think that if you had those kinds of powers of energy manipulation, you'd just phase through the window in the first place or something.
