The Infinitors don’t look as though they’re doing so well here, do they?
What has Batman done that would lead Fury to convince Catwoman to kill Batman?! Surely this can’t be resolved in a single issue?
So there I was on the weekend, catching up with some back issues of Infinity, Inc from the late 80s (because that’s how I spend the ridiculously hot yet rare summer days here in the UK) when I came across #42.
Fury is pregnant (and most everyone knows how that turns out) so is taking some time off, and the rest of the team organise a going away beach party for her. Wildcat, as a rock magazine journalist, hires a band to play at the party and we get a splash page of the team enjoying themselves in civvies:
It’s nice to see a group of heroes relaxing every now and then as it makes a change from the constant round of battle after battle.
That said, I have to admit I did a double take when I noticed the name of the band:
Now I don’t know if that’s there because of Roy and Dann Thomas, the writers, or whether one of the artists slipped it in for the hell of it, but The Family Jewels . . . honestly!?
Whoever did it had some balls, that’s all I can say.
