Did Shang Chi ever wear shoes or any kind of footwear during his first series? I only have a handful of issues, but in all of them he was always barefoot. Now that's bad-ass.

Archie Comics' brief revival of their superhero line during the 1980s opened my eyes to other publishers aside from DC and Marvel. As a kid, I was wowed by the fact that there were other superheroes not under the DC or Marvel banner. I even thought these guys were new heroes (well, Darkling was at the time) and didn't know 'til later that some of the Mighty Crusaders have been around since the 1940s.

Aahh... Karb-Brak. The Superman adversary who wasn't only allergic to his own alien race, but also allergic to Superman. And Vartox (to be fair, who ISN'T allergic to Vartox?). You can read all about the insanity that is Karb-Brak here.

It's an amusing coincidence that the major players in OMAC are slang words for "friend," like my title suggests. We have "Buddy" Blank, OMAC's non-powered alter ego, "Bro"-ther Eye, the satellite that gives him his powers, and the main character himself, O-"MAC." Yeah, I dwell on these things too much.
