|Sorry, General, "old" is not a super power.|

Here we are for another installment of everybody's favorite shrinking/growing super heroine Elasti-Girl/Rita Farr. Sorry for the delay in getting this up, but I was out of state helping my mom move and found myself with no free time or reliable internet access.
Every week (or so) I'm going to go back to an old Doom Patrol story and pull out the parts that feature Rita being either really big or tiny. And maybe a few images that strike my fancy. I'm probably stretching the "fair use" provisions of copyright law as it is so I can't show you everything and be a good netizen. That means that most installments won't show coherent plots since I'm going to be ditching most of that crap.
We've reached My Greatest Adventures #84 and Rita's fifth adventure. This issue marks the second cover in a row where Rita isn't featured grown or shrunk so we skip straight to the splash page. A trend that I hope goes away real soon.
General Immortus returns with another convoluted plot. We didn't get to see too much of GI in his last go around, but he is front and center here. I've taken to reading the Chief's dialog in Prof. Farnsworth's voice so I'm going to read the General's in Mr. Burns'.
Looking at the splash page I'm reminded of the comparisons that people have made between this series and the Fantastic Four. Well mostly they compare this series to X-Men, but I think that they both owe a lot to Reed's team. Negative Man is really giving me a Johnny Storm vibe in this image and lead covered Cliff is almost bulked up enough to be the Thing. Rita breaks the mold by being large and in charge instead of invisible and incompetent.

I finally broke down and took and looked into making a promotional video for the Taedis "brand." I wasn't sure if there would be anything useful for the sort of material that I create, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a few clips that worked from a tiny man's POV. I'm actually quiet impressed with the results. They provided the clip and the music. All I had to do was figure out which video and music that I wanted and plug in the text that I wanted. The only thing they didn't provide was the logo which was a piece of stock footage I'd already purchased.
