So for today's edition of What The Fuck Were They Thinking, I decided to pick out an obvious honoree, the one the only(well, not really it seems) The Living Eraser!
Apparently he's down with DX it seems. Or they stole the crotch chop from him, you decide.
If only you could've been too, and stayed that way.
Dubbed the living eraser, this unnamed alien invader from Dimension Z came to Earth as a potential invader for his race of......living Erasers I guess. He first appeared in the comic Tales To Astonish#49 in November of 1963, and has baffled readers ever since. Well maybe not, since I'm sure the causal fan doesn't even remember this jack-off. Probably for the best since Mr.Eraser hasn't aged very well as an antagonist or concept.
He was sent from Dimension Z to kidnap a handful of very important scientists, and bring them back to his home world, where they'd serve the Supremacy.
Talk to the hand girlfriend!
Hank Pym, then known as Ant-Man, was one of the scientists on the Eraser's scientist shopping list. Unfortunately for him, he didn't know Pym was a super-hero, nor that the Wasp hid long enough to become abducted along with Pym, thus proving to be the Eraser's undoing.
His powers, with the use of a device called a Dimensionalizer, was to use the technology to transport you to another dimension. Of course the process was bizarre in that it looked like you were literally being erased before you're very eyes. In reality, parts of you were being shunted off to another dimension. But fuck, how trippy would that shit be to see that process go down and live in living color? I'd seriously have to give up smoking the Chiba for a bit if I saw that shit.
Much like the Space Phantom, there are/were other "Erasers" around, all equally unnamed and looking pretty much the same. So this dude could've been named Bob, and then before you know it, you're fighting his brother-in-law, or some wacky-ass shit like that.
Anyways, Ant-Man and the Wasp kicked his ass, and sent him packing for parts unknown.....
13 years later in Marvel Two-In-One#15, the Eraser returns, this time having overthrown the Supremacy(king) of his dimension and wanted to once again take-over our Earth. He obviously picked a bad day to pull that, seeing as how The Thing and Morbius were there to kick his ass again. Sure he brought to his home dimension, bu they escaped with the help of the Supremacy, and that should've been all we ever heard about him or his people ever again.
John Byrne didn't seem to think so, and brought him back in Sensational She-Hulk#;s 35-37. Well, a second version, since the first one got executed for that poorly-thought out coup he attempted.
This Eraser was sent to kidnap She-Hulk, since the Supremacy fell in love with her. I guess her being Green like them helped, as did the fact that she's fucking hot!
So to get her to be more cooperative, they kidnapped her then boyfriend Wyatt Wingfoot. Predictably she saved him and took off back to Earth.
After that, the evil Yondroth(the evil sorcerer that used to bother the Defenders all the time) used a squad of Erasers to invade Japan in Defenders#1(Vol.2) 2001.
Since then, it's been quiet on the Eraser front. And it should be, especially ever since the Magic Eraser from Mr. Clean was invented.
I wonder of those two ever met?
That's the villain known as "The Human Eraser". Yeah someone got drunk/high/both, and came up with that winner of a concept too. The fuck man?
Alright kids, have a good to great weekend, and stay away from the dirty hookers. Unless they're clean and and an show you a piece of paper from your town's local health department saying otherwise;)
