Weekly Wonderous Moment in Comics #15

Deep, deep into the darkest regions of Africa we travel this week for our Weekly Wonder. Congo Bill, backup feature in Action Comics back in the 50s, has just witnessed the launch of a spaceship carrying three animals. The spaceship lands and amazingly enough, all three animals have superpowers. What were the animals? Well, the ram could suddenly butt through anything, the lion could fly, and the hippo?

Yeah, the hippo can shoot flames out it's mouth as well as run fast enough to get speedlines!! Look at those cold soulless eyes, that lumbering gate, those fangs?!?!?!? That is one Bad@$$ Hippo! How do I know?
He just melted a friggin' jeep! "What'll happen if the hippo enters the village?" Good question, Einstein. Any normal person would thing that a flame-throwin hippo in a village made entirely out of dry grass would be cause for alarm, but I think in this situation we just might be able to get away with having him melt up some fondue and heat up a few 'smores.

I gotta admit that flame-breathing hippos are ALMOST as awesome as robot sharks and Nazis-riding-dinosaurs. God, I love comics.
