I've got a double posting this Sunday for all my droobs out there. Ok I'm pretty sure you all have seen the Road Warrior right? I've seen the movie since I was a kid more times then I can remember. In my innocence back then little did I know what an asshole Mel Gibson would turn out to be. Anyways, if you haven't seen it you might as well skip this posting because your not going to get what I'm talking about. So you see the clip art to the left (Suicide Squad #1 2008 9 issue mini-series) and what's going on of course. Ya know the thing is with Capt. Boomerang is that people kept under estimating him as an adversary. Yeah he's kind of a schmuck and all but it's important to remember that he's a stone cold killer and even though he has no super powers he does have a deadly skill just like Deadshot. Plus with that distracting eye sore of a costume he wears you might find yourself with the nickname of lefty like this guy here if your not careful. He managed to catch and throw back the first Boomerang thrown at him but when he tries to catch the next one in the Captain's arsenal it didn't quite work out so well for him.
In the Road Warrior there was this feral kid that was running around grunting and growling and throwing this boomerang at the bad guys. Two guys got whacked pretty good with that thing. One was this fem guy that was like the "boy toy" for the bad guys who got cracked in the head with that boomerang. I guess in the Apocalyptic world of the Road Warrior guys there were in a jail house kinda situation as far as options go if you know what I mean. The other guy who got nailed (no pun intended) was like the chump of the group who tried to catch it in mid air after it was thrown again. And like our Capt. Boomerang who has one, the Boomerang in the movie was also a "razor-rang" cause it lopped that dudes fingers right off ( crickey!) much to the amusement of his "friends". I don't know why it's taken me years to make this connection but the Road Warrior, an Australian movie and Capt. Boomerang, an Australian character. A coincidence that the creative team of this series might come up with this fight sequence? I think not, what say you my friends? And also, how about we petition the comic book industry to finally give us a villain or hero from New Zealand? I mean really in a day and age where we've had heroes and villain's that were everything from disabled to gay, is it too much to ask to have one from New Zealand?
