Like most fans, I have a lot of weird ideas for comics in the fantasy world in which I am a comic creator, and my favorite among them is a revival of this title…

Starring this guy…

The Outsiders (1985 series) featured back-up stories in most issues. Many of these stories were humorous in nature and non-canon. Issue 6 contains “The Outsiders at the Bat,” which is a funny adaptation of the poem “Casey at the Bat” and features the Outsiders playing baseball against Kobra.

Funny you should say that, I was watching the film as you wrote this.:slightly_smiling_face:
I was watching it for the first time, the movie wasn’t as bad as it seem.
I think Shaq did a great job playing John Henry Iron.:slightly_smiling_face::basketball:

I have not seen it but I can’t imagine it being the worst film. Plus Shaquille is a likable guy I imagine he helps

DC Super-Stars #11 by Rozakis, Dillin, and McLaughlin from December 1976, “The Great Super-Star Game!” Nine heroes vs. nine villains in a classic baseball game. Black Canary batted .600 in that game and Plastic Man disguised his foot as first base to trick Sportsmaster into an out. I still think to this day that instead of The Batman catching it should have been Swam Thing. I mean he just “plants” himself back there and there’s no way a wild pitch or a passed ball is getting by him. Just like Gary Sanchez–right?
