->ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} rarely used the power of super-hypnotism. It was more of a skill, developed by Franchise/{{Superman}}Âs teaching and reinforced by her super-brain and super-vision. Now, she decided it was time to give it a try.

->You have to give the creators of the newspaper ''Spider-Man'' credit for always exploring new frontiers of total lameness on the part of their characters. In one corner, we have Big Time, a criminal mastermind [[ClockKing so committed to his laughable clock theme]] that he has some sort of clock-shaped pop-gun that spits out its minute hand as ammunition and is thus presumably useless after two shots; and in the other, we have the Amazing Spider-Man, who boasts of his 'spider reflexes,' which will help him dodge a projectile that hasnÂt managed to cover about three feet of space in the time its taken him to thought-balloon a sentence and a half  only to have said reflexes completely disabled by ''a loud noise''. Determining the winner in this battle will be like a philosophical conundrum: can an object with no mass be moved by an infinitely weak force?

->Magneto finally realizes that it was Cortez who launched the missile, trying to provoke Magneto into wiping out humanity. Magneto confronts him, but it turns out that heÂs grown dependent on CortezÂs powers, which are uh hang on 'the ability to bolster another mutantÂs power.' So heÂs basically the s**tty class in an {{MMORPG}}. No wonder heÂs so mad all the time.

->Mister Midnight and Midnight Maid reached in their belt-pouches and came up with weapons. Chuck's was the blackout device, Joyce held the Torch. She activated hers a second before his and blasted the Poet's eyes with a ray of intense brightness. A second later, Chuck's gimmick projected a cone of blackness, engulfing their foe.\\

->Despite a range of powers that extend to "bright lights that can hurt a bit," [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Jubilee]] has been in every group and series with an "X" in the title except [=XXXtube=] (give it time)... They've tried for years to make her kick ass, equipping her with everything from graviton gloves through Pym Particles to antigravity plates. They even -- no shit -- turned her into a vampire, going so far as to transfuse her with Wolverine's blood. They even got rid of her stupid original powers, but it's a lost cause: If traumatic orphanization doesn't make you kick ass at fighting crime, nothing will. (Her main function is now as a living museum of the superheroic fashion mistakes.)
