Disturbing Fetishes of the Supervillains, Part 17

Not to be confused with the DC Universe's Captain Boomerang, the Marvel Universe's Boomerang uses boomerangs as weapons and...um...he comes from Australia.

Oh wait, here's a good way to tell the Earth-1 from the Earth-616 model of toss-and-return supervillain: the Marvel one apparently has an interesting obsession with...um...well, let's just take a look:

Web of Spider-Man Annual #8
Panel from Web of Spider-Man Annual #8 (1992), script by David Michelinie, pencils by Scott McDaniel, inks by Keith Williams, colors by Bob Sharen, letters by Steve Dutro

Whoa. Way too much information, Boomie. What you collect in your own time is your little secret, okay?

Well, I guess it coulda been worse. Glad there wasn't a MAX version of Boomerang where he and Blacklash fought Squirrel Girl, I guess.

Like a seventh stringer like Boomerang could ever take down the great Elephant Steve.

Yeah, like there'd be any of him left for the police to identify after SG got done with him.
