Chernobyl, twenty years on – and the Sunday Irae asks the question that’s on everybody’s lips…


“Where are all the mutant superheroes, then?”

I liked Spiderman. He could live up to his name, unlike that sissy Batman. I've got a feeling you're having a go a certain group of people, Ivan. If so, you're being unusually coy about it.

Uuuuh, no - I just liked the picture. Maybe my subconscious is at work here, then. Who did you have in mind, GB?

Gorilla Bananas said...

In that case, I don't want to put ideas in your head. Gorilla Bananas is no provocateur. Apparently the radiation from the Chernobyl accident did much less harm than expected.

That picture is obviously a fake. Are you going to tell me that his shoes mutated, too?

And GB, Batman is not a mutant, so that comparison is is little unfair. Which is not to say tbat he's not a complete and utter cunt.

Still, sooner Batman than Superman. At least it's possible for Batman to get hurt. Being invulnerable, why should Superman be considered brave? We're just a friggin' hobby to that weirdo. His long reign as an American icon might go some way to shed light upon some otherwise inexplicable displays of hubris in recent years...
