365 Days of KirbyTech, Day 53: Apokoliptian Ground Probe

And now, a little bit of personal time for Scott Free and Big Barda.

That is, until some pesky groundhog interrupts. No, wait, it's not Comics Oughta Be Fun!'s beloved furry rodent favorite Grover Groundhog, but the forces of baddie-planet Apokolips, searching underground for Mister M. and Big B. by using a frankly fantastic Ground Probe! Ah, if only Bill Murray had had one of these in Caddyshack.

Luckily Mister Miracle has one more trick up his sleeve: the equivalent of shining a flashlight in the eyes of somebody wearing night-vision goggles, or sprinkling Tabasco sauce on Matt Murdock's tongue. SENSORY OVERLOAD AHOY!

Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha! That trick never gets old! You won't believe how many times Blue Beetle and Booster Gold fell for this when they were in the JLI with Mister Miracle.
