1[[quoteright:350:[[Comicbook/ManyHappyReturns]]]]˛[[caption-width-right:350:Because... No reason, [[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]]]]˛˛* Somewhat disturbing example: in ''Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' volume 2, when Mina Murray learns that Hyde has taken care of the Invisible Man, he is quick to assure her that "I attended to his ''end''. Rest assured, it was... comfortable." Being a proper Victorian lady, Mina takes comfort in this assurance of a painless death, not twigging for a second that this ''actually'' means that [[spoiler:Hyde brutally sodomized the Invisible Man before beating him to death.]]˛* In ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', a caption describes devil-turned-nightclub-owner Lucifer playing a medley of unreleased (fictional) Cole Porter songs that Porter only performed privately for friends, ending with "She Never Went Down on the Titanic." (Someone really needs to write the lyrics to that.)˛* Though [[HaveAGayOldTime almost certainly unintentional]], rereading some old comics can have readers in gales of uncontrollable laughter, [[ due to the slang of the day]].˛* A storyline in ''ComicBook/CableAndDeadpool'' involved Deadpool's friend Weasel joining HYDRA under the very inspired name Penetrator (or, rather, Penetraitor). Predictably, this caused some choice dialogue.˛-->'''Henchman 1:''' It seems... I don't know... provocative.\˛'''Henchman 2:''' In almost a... ''gratuitous'' fashion.\˛'''Penetrator:''' ''What?'' We're going to use the Penetrator to ''penetrate'' the warm, comfortable walls of mother Earth! This machine will ''ram'' home our agenda! All will know HYDRA has ''thrust'' themselves into the very ''womb'' of civilization! What's gratuitous about that...?˛** Later:˛-->'''Wolverine:''' ... so I can show the Penetrator here something long and hard -- and cold and sharp!\˛'''Penetrator:''' Okay, I deserve the silly entendre, since I chose this name, but I really think you don't understand--˛** And again:˛-->'''Deadpool:''' The Penetrator is my friend... Okay, wait, lemme try that again... Weasel is my friend -- and he happens to be sheathed in a protective coating that allows him to safely penetrate things... Okay, wait, lemme try that again--\˛'''Wolverine:''' Shut up!˛** Earlier during the run, when Deadpool attacked the Great Lakes Champions, he made fun of Mr. Immortal for owning the X-Men card set, Mr. Immortal replying they were only for flipping.˛-->'''Deadpool:''' Yeah, I'd like to flip Kitty Pryde.\˛'''ComicBook/SquirrelGirl:''' Shut your evil, evil pie hole!˛*** Though, in this case [[ it might not actually have been a double entendre.]]˛** Cable and Deadpool's "Bodyslide by two".˛** [[PrivateEyeMonologue "My name is Wilson]]. [[ Wade Wilson. I'm a dick."]]˛** A conversation during Deadpool's fight against ComicBook/{{Taskmaster}}:˛-->'''Deadpool:''' Scared the pants out of me... Well, not literally, 'cause then you'd be all distracted by my two bazookas. You know -- on account of I got one '''real''' bazooka -- and the ''other'' bazooka would be a metaphor for--\˛'''Taskmaster:''' Shut up! I get it. You think it was '''deep''' or something? Like your humour requires footnotes?˛** Also, while fighting '''Rhino''':˛-->'''Deadpool:''' Me am '''horny'''. Okay, that was too obvious even for me.˛** In Deadpool & Cable, Deadpool gloats that he has become more popular than Cable, and thus his name is on the first line:˛-->'''Deadpool:''' More pop culture fans cosplay me at one con in one weekend than they have you in like, twenty years! And now I finally get to be on top! I always had to be on the bottom, but I didn't really like it. I just accepted it. You were bigger, older, more experienced, so you deserved to be on top. But it's my turn now, baby!˛* "Finbarr Saunders and his Double Entendres" is a strip in ''ComicBook/{{Viz}}'' in which the title character laughs at various DoubleEntendre-sounding phrases exchanged between his mother and his neighbor. It always culminates in him realizing it's all perfectly innocent, only for the last DoubleEntendre to ''actually'' have the sexual meaning and the strip to end with his mother and the neighbor shagging.˛* From ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' storyline ''Comicbook/ManyHappyReturns'':˛-->'''Kara Zor-El:''' I'm looking through it. It's amazing. All the '''equipment''' I'm seeing. So many sizes and shapes...\˛'''Linda Danvers:''' All the ...? '''Kara'''! Just '''where''' are you looking?!\˛'''Kara:''' The equipment room, where they keep all the sporting stuff, why?\˛'''Linda:''' Oh, I thought you were peeping in at the guy's lock-- Forget it. My '''own''' dirty mind.˛* Shockingly enough, a fairly G-rated newspaper comic ''Pickles'' got a double entendre through once; the wife is tired of waiting for her husband to unclog the sink and the husband replies he'll get to it in a "sec". The wife grows furious and states "I spent half of my time waiting for secs! I don't want to hear any more about secs!" Her husband is then laughing very hard for obvious reasons and the wife is clueless as to why he is laughing. While her use of "secs" was something innocent, the husband saw that in an obviously different light.˛* Ditto for ''Moon Mullins'', in which Emmy Schmaltz keeps trying to get young Kayo to turn off the TV and get to work on his homework. Kayo (repeatedly): "Just a sec, Emmy!" -- which results in an exasperated: "No, Kayo! No more 'secs!'" -- much to the surprise of Lord Plushbottom (speaking of double entendres) in the next room.˛* In ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'', this exchange takes place between [[TheStoic Batman]] and [[WhipItGood Catwoman]] ([[ItMakesSenseInContext it really does make sense in context]]).˛-->'''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}:''' Well? Or do I have to purr in your ear?\˛'''Batman:''' No... but maybe later you could scratch my back.\˛'''Catwoman:''' What's the matter? No itches in the '''''front'''''?˛* In a JLA Classified storyline where the Supervillain Blackguard is moving in next door. His real name is Richard Hurtz. But he prefers to be called Dick.˛* [[ The Giant-Sized Man-Thing]], or the fact that [[ Kang]] is a purple-headed invader. The latter was actually pointed out in ''ComicStrip/TwistedToyfareTheatre''.˛-->'''Franchise/SpiderMan:''' Anybody ever point out that you're a purple-headed invader, or has Creator/StanLee been laughing to himself for the last forty years?\˛'''Kang:''' Eh, you know Stan.˛* Hawaiian Dick˛* From ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' #103: Huntress and Judo Master commenting on Big Barda's choice of weapon.˛-->'''Huntress:''' Looks like she pulled out her mega rod.\˛'''Judo Master:''' It's quite a devastating mega rod.\˛'''Huntress:''' Her massive mega rod looms large in her hand.˛* Nico from ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' is a witch whose powers come from a big staff that gets absorbed into her body when she's not using it. In one issue, she fights a thug carrying a crowbar. Their dialogue goes like this:˛-->'''Wrecker:''' Sister, you just earned yourself a taste of the ''big stick''.\˛'''Nico:''' Bet mine's bigger than yours.˛* ''Knight & Squire'', Paul Cornell's [=DC Comics=] miniseries about British superheroes, features a pair of villains called Double Entendre, who speak in these.˛-->"I swear, if tonight doesn't get more exciting, I'll go to the top of Big Ben and toss myself off."˛* When Bullseye asks {{ComicBook/Daken}} which side he is on as the ComicBook/DarkAvengers and Dark X-Men quarrel, [[DepravedBisexual Daken]] responds that he always did like playing for both teams.˛* One arc of ''ComicBook/NewAvengers'' was a FantasticVoyagePlot. When Ant-Man and Doctor Strange go into Luke Cage's body to retrieve an explosive device from his heart, Spider-Man can't resist reminding Luke that "you have two men inside you right now."˛* Inverted in ''ComicBook/SwampThing'' vol. 2 #56. The title character, stranded on a distant planet without sapient life, fashions a vegetable replica of his lover Abby, choosing to ignore that it's he who's making her move and speak. As he fights the growing realization that he's [[GoMadFromTheIsolation going mad from the isolation]], "Abby" tries to seduce him by saying "Lie with me." The [[Literature/TheBible KingJamesVersion]] term for "have sex" also has the meaning here of "deliberately engage in falsehood."˛----
