Amazing Spider-Man #380
Issue(s): Amazing Spider-Man #380
They also calm the rioting crowds, each in their own (sometimes ridiculous) way.
And that results in a Care Bears moment.
I love that the one guy had to add that "most of us" qualifier. That guy in the back, with the mustache? He's not good people. He's an asshole.
Anyway, Shriek is able to fight back against the crowd's love.
She re-mobifies the crowd, and that's our cliffhanger.
Oh by the way, there are a lot of random super-heroes in this story, but you know who's not pulling his weight? Molten Man.
What's the deal, dude? Waiting around watching TV and waiting to be "saved". You have super powers! Get out there! If you're going to have super-powers and be in this story, you have to do something.

Can you blame that guy for wanting to steal that computer? Its hard drive is 80 megabytes!

One of the problems with Venom as a "hero" is that the villains have to be completely-over-the-top-evil to make him look heroic. So you get villains mind controlling innocent citizens to murder their children and commit rape.

By the way is there a blatant coloring error shown in the scans Fnord provided or were women threatening to throw their babies off rooftops all over town?

OH, man, that "heroes bring people to their senses" page is so much funnier than intended.

But Cecil. He's "an accountant", which as we all know means he can't possibly be a sexual predator...for some reason.
Also I know comic books like to utilize "Light=Purification" tropes, but Firestar's "light" is from microwave energy. Unless you want a dose of concetrated radiation, I don't think it's going to "calm" anyone's psyche.

It is amazing that the guy in an American flag costume is the most genuinely dignified thing in this issue. I love that Cap's disapproval is enough to break the spell, not being sarcastic here at all. Though it probably helps with some of the other ways the heroes are snapping the others back to their senses.
