Okay, I get that you’re a morally upstanding superdude from a bright and brilliant future where the entire human race lives in peace and non-aggressive harmony and mankind has finally reached it’s full potential as a species.

But when you time-travel back to the past, and some foot-tall creeps are trying to alternately climb under your  girlfriend’s clothes and tear them off, it’s time to activate the Magna-Boots and make with the stomping.

Batman just *knew* when Robin started wearing eyeliner and insisting they listen to My Chemical Romance and Bullet For My Valentine on the Batmobile’s stereo, nothing good would come of it.

Ever wonder what it would’ve been like if Stephen King had been head writer for Marvel Comics in the 1960s instead of Stan Lee?

“There’s this nebbish kid, Peter Parker, see, and a radioactive spider comes along . . . ”

If you think that’s scary, wait until you read the issue of Uncanny X-Men where, as a prank, Iceman rigs a bucket of pig’s blood to dump on Jean Grey’s head at the spring formal at Professor Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters.

Thanks for stopping by Public Domain!  It may not have been the droids you were Googling for, but since you’re already here — and in the spirit of the endlessly spiralling, time-devouring Habitrail of Doom the Internet best embodies  — why not check out some of our past posts?

The funny, nerdy stuff is here, reviews are here, and thoughts / opinions / observations on various writing-related topics here.  Two of our regular ongoing features are Tales to Admonish!, which pokes sarcastic fun at old comic books, and we’re big on memes in these parts, which you can find over here.  (Wow, it’s like having your own personal digital concierge.  Now if only we could figure out how to make a spout pop out of the side of your monitor / laptop screen / tablet / smartphone and serve your favorite beverage.  Science, forget the jetpacks and flying cars, and get on that instead.)
