The Spectre: Fighting for better-smelling bad guys!

The Spectre continues his crusade to rid the world of evil-doers who scorn soap and deodorant! Seriously, I think Casper's true motives are quite clear here:

That's right -- if you stink, the Spectre's gonna hunt you down ...

... especially if you smell bad enough to make dead people crawl outta their graves:

Wow. Now THAT's stinky.

No doubt about it, the Spectre really does have a serious issue with bad smells -- and you bad guys WILL hear about it, that's for sure. He seems especially fond of using the word "putrid," in particular:

Attention, manufacturers of personal hygiene products: If you need a commercial endorsement for soap or deodorant, the Spectre is your man, er, ghost!

Geez, that company would make millions. MILLIONS!


SallyP said... IS fun to say putrid. Stench is another fun word. The Specre doesn't just like to punish the bad guys,he also likes to humiliate them a bit by making fun of their personal hygiene.

Don't mess with the Spectre.

Incidentally, did Hal run around calling everyone stinkypants when HE was Spectre?

Nah, Hal was always trying too hard to be NICE to everybody -- much to the Spectre's dismay. Actually, it would be a very funny exercise to do a direct comparison between the Jim Corrigan Spectre ("DIE by the hands of your OWN FOULNESS, evil-doer!!!") and the Hal Jordan Spectre ("Oh, I know you really didn't MEAN to shoot that little old lady in the head. I forgive you!"). It would be like trying to compare Anton Chigurh with a Care Bear. ;-)

I don't know enough about the Crispus Allen Spectre to make any comparisons.

SallyP said...

Heh. Hal certainly did have his moments. I really enjoyed it when he brought Ollie back from the dead, because the two of them managed to maintain their sense of humor throughout the whole thing.

Crispus Allen doesn't seem to HAVE a sense of humor. I think that Jim Corrigan did, which is why he ran around yelling "putrid" all the time.

Sea_of_Green said...

Corrigan was just MEAN. Yeah, he did have a rather jaded sense of humor, but basically he was a rather mean guy -- and that trait was exaggerated by the Spectre. Hal, on the other hand, for all his macho posturing, doesn't really have a mean bone in his entire body.

Jonah Hex was always referring to thugs as "skunks". Fleisher must have had a sensitive nose.

LOL! Well, he certainly did have a flair for colorful insults. :-)
