"Captain elaborated beard"?? You just created that comic to write yourself in!
Captain Elaborate Beard is a Betty Sue isn't he? Come on, fess up.
Yes I'm quite sure "Captain Elaborate Beard" would make a great comic. But is there a market for bearded heroes these days?Bearded Heroines of course are rarities and are accepted but Heroes are a dime a dozen.
Green Arrow was, of course, the gold standard proof of this axiom. Maybe people just thought that Oliver Queen was just so creepily obsessed with GA that he insisted on styling his beard the same way.
That's sort of like He-Man. His secret identity had a pet green and yellow talking tiger, which noone else seemed to have. And He-Man looked exactly the same (same hair, face, etc) with a green and yellow talking tiger....AND NOONE CONNECTED THEM!!!!!!!!
Captain Elaborate Beard was TOTALLY a member of the Legion of Substitute Supstitute Super-Pet Instructors. I thought everyone knew that...And remember its ELABORATE. There was never a Captain Elaborated Beard. A Proffesor Elaboreted Beard yes. But he was a villain. A member of the Fairly Naughty Eleven IIRC...
Gustavo: I'm sure I have no idea what you're talking about *hastily removes glasses and fedora*Jon: The very IDEA. Harumph! Harumph, I say to you now.Captain Koma: I can think of a particular "niche" market that would go positively "nuts" for a bearded hero. (I'm referring, of course, to ham radio enthusiasts.)Dean: I have an alternate theory, based on zero proof: there are vast herds of men shuffling about Star City with that exact same beard. It's nice to think about, anyway.Comixbear: That makes Green Arrow's beard seem totally sensible!Lurker: Heh. Now, try to get some sleep, pal; you're hallucinating. I don't care if you're at work. BLOCKADE BOY COMMANDS IT! Er, sorry. I didn't mean to snap at you like that. I guess I need some sleep, too!
I may have found another great-great grandfather. How many can a lad have, for goodness sake?Oh, right. Eight.
"Green Arrow was, of course, the gold standard proof of this axiom."In the Mike Grell run, Oliver Queen's "disguise" was considered so flimsy that, one time, the police captain just showed up at the Queen residence to compare notes on a case. He didn't even realize that Green Arrow's civilian identity was intended to be secret.Under Kevin Smith, too, the "disguise" was considered effectively nonexistent -- Mia Dearden instantly saw through it, and probably lots of other people did too.
