Comic-Con Extra: "Mommy, why is Kitty Pryde taking off her uniform?"

Spotted at the end of the day Saturday as we were driving from the Comic-Con to In-N-Out Burger: the adult entertainment club "Pure Platinum," with inflated letter balloons on the front spelling out "COMIC CON" and a sign reading: "Welcome Comic-Con!":
Pure Platinum

Q: So how exactly are they planning to appeal to comics fans?:
Your host: Wolverine!

A: The exotic show is hosted by Wolverine.

Hmmm, I guess that finally explains this outfit of Kitty Pryde's:
How can she even be over eighteen yet?

By the way, John told me to make certain you know we were jus' passin' by.

Kitty Porn?

I know you live in New York, so I suggest you take a walk to the corner of 53rd and Broadway.

On the north side of the street is 1700 Broadway, home of DC Comics (and you can usually see Superman looking out one of the windows). On the south side is FlashDancers, one of the last strip clubs in Times Square.

I have it on good authority that every time John McCrea visits the editorial office, he tries to get them to take him to the club on the company dime. (I swear I am not making that up).

I think there could be better synergy between the comics and stripping industries. Hey, lonely nerds are lonely nerds.

Sleestak: ew.
