Comic Vine Twitter Question Results: What's the most ridiculous item in comics?

We want to know what items you find silly, and we got a ton of responses!

It's time for the results to the Twitter Question of the week! Every Monday, we ask our followers on Twitter a question about comic books and take your answers and put them into this nice little package. Without a doubt, there's a lot of silly items in comic books. Whether it's an invisible jet for a character who can fly or a spider-car, everyone has one item they just can't stand. So we asked our followers "What's the most ridiculous item in comics?" Here's some of the responses.

Jonathan wants to nullify one item...

Julius knows one item that's a HUGE problem for a character

Ben is always forgetting about King Shark!

Mark likes his gauntlets finite

Brett doesn't consider Mogo a character

Walter is just jealous of Wonder Woman

Thomas likes his arrows basic


Let's see what the staff had to say this week!

Tony found the weirdest thing in comics

Gregg also likes his arrows basic

I hate Psycho Man... and his toys

There you have another week of answers about comic books. If you want to get in on the fun, make sure to follow us on Twitter where we post the question a few times on Mondays, and make sure to use #CVTQ when replying; otherwise, we'll have no clue you answered!

Definitely the Infinity Gauntlet or UN...both are really lame.

LOL. When I read your comment, for a second I thought you were talking about the United Nations before I realized you meant Ultimate Nullifier.

Hmmm, my first thought was the ultimate nulifier as well.

Closer runner up has gotta be Batman's utility belt.

@arturocalakayvee: I've been thinking about this for a while now, and I've come to the conclusion that the big two are stuck in the 90s.

I love them both - controversially, I really enjoy the New 52 and Marvel NOW! - but they're doing a lot of things tried and tested in the 90s that don't really hold up. DC did a universe-wide reboot in 2011... okay, fine, there've been reboots for ages, but many of the costumes, storylines, origins and the picking and choosing of old story arcs that they wish to retcon or include (there's no clear timeline: some things are left unchanged from the old timeline, and others have been changed for no reason) all scream 1990s.

And then there's Marvel, who keep constantly doing crossovers and events, and having tons of variants covers that are becoming more and more expensive. Most infamously, at the moment anyway, they're doing weird things with Spider-Man (Clone Saga in the 90s, Superior now - I don't care how critically acclaimed Superior is, I find it really unsettling) and unnecessarily relaunching titles with every creative team change - why is there ANOTHER Fantastic Four renumbering when it only happened a year ago? And ANOTHER costume change? As I said, I love the comics and the characters, but they're both sticking with these notions which I feel don't work.

Just my thoughts.

@staypuffed: You're not the only one who has been claiming both companies are stuck in the 90's. I personally don't see it because I started reading in the 90's so I naturally think 90's stories are awesome. The stories now? I enjoy a lot of Marvels but I hate most of DC's…so for me, I don't necessarily see it but I totally understand where you're coming from.
