Hmmm... good question... I think Flash would be ok because he does the fast running thing, gotta be used to that kinda stuff... Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter have space flying experience, so I think they'd be ok too... hmmm... I don't think if Wonder Woman threw up, she'd swallow it back down because she doesn't want to look weak, so that leaves Green Arrow and Aquaman. I think Green Arrow would loose his lunch, because he looks like he probably drinks a lot on the job. Booze and spinning don't mix!

Even without reading Rich's thoughtful comment, my vote was for Green Arrow, too.

Brian said...

I'm going to bet on Aquaman blowing chunks first, since he is out of water and the spinning will dry him out and weaken him.

I think Aquaman has already thrown up in this picture. Look at the color of that shirt....

Perhaps the audience who had to read these 'Silver-Age' scenarios from cover to cover?

Anonymous said...

Jayar... Wha? Those Silver Age comics are incredible!!! They had fun, and amazing out of this world scenarios that allowed escape from real world problems... something I think modern comics could do with a little more of. But of course that's just my opinion.

todd said...

yeah, jayar--i love those old silver age chestnuts! they're fun and whimsical and bring me back to a simpler, more innocent time...
that said, yeah, i can't read four of 'em in a row without needing a break...but three in a row is perfect!

Ahhhh... Back when Justice League was fun to read.

And I vote for GA. All the rest are used to some sort of motion from flying or riding the waves.

I wish they were still doing stories like this.

Unknown said...

My vote's on Aquaman. Only fair since so many landjubbers blow chunks out at sea that the reverse happens to our orange shirted friend...
