Hmmm...Maybe I should start a new series called "Badly Costumed Heroes" because here's yet another one. This one's called BOOMERANG and comes from TERRIFIC COMICS (which was a bit of a misnomer). While admiring his sartorial splendor, note also his sidekick, the fearsomely named...DIANA! Why do I suspect that ol' Mister Boomerang designed her costume for her? "Come on, honey. It's hep! It's stylish! Having so little of your flesh covered will HELP us in our crimefighting by distracting the enemy and so what if it's a little tight in the rear? It looks good on you! Heh, heh, heh!" Of course, one look at him should have told her that this guy's no Mister Blackwell either!


  1. What a riot! Badly Costumed Heroes is a great idea for series. I'm sure the comic world is ripe with possibilites!

  2. Actually, Boomerang is rescuing Diana from a Nazi prison at this point (Terrific Comics #2, "The Butcher of Berlin"). She's wearing what remained of her gown. Diana teamed up with Boomerang again in issues 3, 4, and 5. I believe you can see a version of the costume she chose in #3. (It's a lot more abbreviated than this.)
