49 Things That Comics Imply About Christmas
The holidays always brings out the best in comic book cover artists. They also brings out the weirdness.
Comics strongly imply that Santa is never able to do his job without help
Because his sleigh always seems to break down
Or he forgets his reindeer
So he mostly relies on the labor of others
Though Batman really isn't pulling his weight
These three didn't even use the chimney...
Honestly, Superman just wants Claus' job
and is kinda a jerk about it
Santa gets upstaged a lot
In strange and unique ways..
He appears to dislike his job
As he has to deal with greed
Santa's helpers fare no better
No one trusts Saint Nick to do his job so they pose as him...
With varying degrees of success
You're not fooling anyone Optimus
No one can get into the spirit of the holidays
Mostly in Christmas ornaments
I guess because they are shiny?
and they end up having a horrible holiday season
Heroes make the holidays a total downer
Because someone is either screwing up
Or plotting world domination
Or having financial problems
Or just attempting to destroy the world
And some heroes take the religious aspect a bit too seriously
I mean Superman is an alien, I didn't expect him to be preachy
So its no surprise when Santa blows his stack
and attempts vehicular homicide
or assaults Iron Man with a death ray...
turns himself into a zombie...
or creates clones of himself...
Santa will use whatever means necessary
However, sometimes things don't always come up Santa
and the results are tragic
But the holidays are also a time for romance
and every so often the heroes do something truly noble to keep Santa from going over the edge
