Look Who's Stalking!

s183willyoupleasestop

Y'know, take away the whole Superboy/Gravity Girl angle and this scenario starts to look more like something you'd see reenacted on "America's Most Wanted." ("What Kent didn't realize is that the whole bloody massacre would be witnessed by eleven-year-old Willaby Fenton, who had made a habit of peeking through the windows of the Lang residence...")

Oh, and I see they're passing that one menswear shop frequented by Colonel Sanders, John Travolta, and Mister Roarke from "Fantasy Island."

Are Clark's hands down his pants?

The Mutt said...

So, does Clark really suspect her? Or is he just being a superdick again?

And did this sstory come before or after the Insect Queen epic?

Obsessive fanboys want to know!

Sleestak said...

But who is the mysterious shadowed figure around the corner you can see through the glass?!?!

Bill S. said...

I suspect Superdickery, myself. No wonder Superboy got on so well with the Legion: he was a pioneer in the realm of being a jerk.

(I think The Question is the person we see in the window.)

I love that you have gotten so much mileage out of a single story.

Blockade Boy said...

Jon: Well, is there really any other way to stalk someone?

The Mutt and Bill S.: It's Superdickery, plain and simple. And a Google search tells me the Insect Queen story came about four years after this one. So Clark's motive here is "petty vengence."

Sleestak: Gah! I never even noticed that guy! Apparently I'm eminently stalkable myself.

Stalkable? Isn't t hat how you met Plant Lad, he followed you around pretending to be a ficus?

Kai said...

I altered Clark's words slightly to make him sound creepier than he already is.

The Silver Age: creepiness in every panel.

I'm pretty sure he's flashing her.

"Hang around" should be in quotation marks.

Johnathan said...

Oh, and that's totally the Phantom Stranger in the background.

Blockade Boy said...

MaGnUs: No, see, my family was on a camping trip and I had to pee really bad so I went behind this bush and... well, I'll leave the rest of it up to your imagination.

Kai: Yipes! The really creepy part for me is wondering how he's planning on "proving it."

Jonathan: And he's shopping for turtlenecks!

MaGnUs said...

So he wasn't disguised as a ficus, he was disguised as a wild bush.. .same thing...
