I don't know if she ever got any, but if I were you, I'd give Harley Quinn some pancakes.

A Month of... Pancakes! Day 15: Thirty thousand pounds of pancakes


Hey, we all remember that time Deadpool make more than a quarter million (but fewer than a half million) pancakes, right? Capturing the Eisner Award for "Most Pancakes in a Single Issue?"

Why'd he'd do that, huh? So that if/when Domino falls in through his skylight, she has something to cushion her fall. (Something "else.")



Then, after Domino has her leather-clad body all over 'em, you can eat 'em for breakfast! Instead of, y'know, bagging them in Mylar.

366 Days with J. Jonah Jameson, Day 202: Oh mein Papa

Please join me today in wishing a happy 117th birthday to an American giant of literature, Ernest Hemingway! He's a pretty big deal, but did he ever get his picture in Marvel Comics, did he? Have you ever seen his picture in a Marvel comic? Hmmm? How can you say someone is great who's never had his picture in Marvel Comics?

Still, J. Jonah Jameson seems to like him.

So, if we can take anything from all this, it's that Ernest Hemingway has never had his picture in Marvel Comics.

366 Days with J. Jonah Jameson, Day 200: I just want your extra time and your kiss


Yesterday: J. Jonah Jameson had a heart attack and died!

Eh, I'm just foolin' ya. I (and Marvel) wouldn't do that to our favorite grumpy newspaperman. No, he survived...thanks to The Amazing Mouth-to-Mouth Resuscitation of Peter Parker!

And eventually he got better. And they all lived grumpily ever after.
