Manic Monday Bonus--The Vanilla Ice Of 1941?!?

The Flash is stepping down from the Justice Society, because he got his own comic book (that's how things worked back then!!).

So who wants to replace him?

Well, the JSAers decide to have a little bit of fun with Johnny, to pay him back for his impertinence:

Killer McPanzee?!?


Ah, but it turns out that our heroes pulling Johnny's leg a bit...

A old guy with his own printing press, who prints up fake newspapers about how many people he's killed so people will think he's tough?

Ladies and gentlemen, Gardner Fox invented gangster rap several decades early!!

Of course, the JSA soon found out that it wasn't funny, as Johnny's misadventures uncovered many actual criminal enterprises, which required the heroes to get off their butts and actual fight crime.

NOTE: Is there anything more chilling than the Spectre's "Ho-ho-ho" "Ha-ha-ha!"?? I mean, do you really want this guy playing practical jokes...?

From All-Star Comics #6 (1941)

Golden Age of Dickish Superheroes, if you ask me.

Later comics record an incident where the Spectre and Dr. Fate went pub-crawling, and caused a bloody stampede by making bottles scream in the voices of the damned. Good times!

On the other hand, I can see their reasoning. Johnny IS really annoying sometimes.
