Men in Tights!

Mike Peters, 5/24/12:
Some might look at this cartoon and assume that Peters doesn't know his Marvel from his DC. Not me.

In this summer of The Avengers, how could a working cartoonist not know what Superman and Batman are DC characters? Inconceivable!

So Peters is playing a deeper game here, and making the old insinuation that any man who runs around at night in his long underwear punching people must be awfully light in the loafers. And who's to say he's not right?
