How To Avoid A Marriage Proposal, Golden Age Style!!

Jim Corrigan has a date....but the lovely Clarice has an ulterior motive!



Yeah, telling her the truth is clearly not an option...? Because you're kind of a super-hero ghost, right?

"What a spot," indeed! How ever will you get out of this, Jim?


Ah, the convenient lion attack stratagem!




What a convenient rampage! [SPOILER ALERT: Despite his pretty much total power over time and space, the Spectre was not responsible for jungle animals running amok in the city. It was one of those dang scientists and their damn teleportation rays...]

Remember...the Spectre is this powerful...

...but he's completely nonplussed by a woman wanting to talk about tying the knot!

The key takeaway from today's lesson: when you're girlfriend is pressing for marriage, and you don't want to admit that you're technically dead, just wait for the inevitable lion attract to distract her!!

From More Fun Comics #73 (1941). Showcase #61 is from 1966.

Hey, admitting you're dead would be a tough conversation!

Seems a bit too convenient for that to happen. Maybe he really is that tight with God;)

Why wasn't "The Presence" this helpful in the other comics?
