How can she be wearing wonder support hose, when her legs are bare?
(unless it’s invisible, like her plane?)

Okay, wait, maybe I sort of kind of get part of this: are they actually peeing in the snow? And Green Lantern’s is green for some reason, but the other guys’ are… white??
No, the more I think I get it, the more confused I am.

I don’t have an actual Ewww comic for today, but I suspect that any explanation for this one will be suitably unpleasant.

A bit off-topic, I guess, but…
I’ve been wondering how religion can exist at all in the comic book world, given what the people see around them: Creating life has been done and done some more. Change water into wine? Dozens of people can do that. The Scarlet Witch can change the very nature of reality without pausing from putting on her make-up.
That whole resurrection thing? Please! Superman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Jason Todd, Electra, Jean Grey, Jean Grey, Jean Grey… Just over the past month or so, the Flash, Kid Flash and Superboy all returned from the dead. We’re not talking “missing and presumed dead” here, but dead-as-a-doorbell, bodies buried. Captain America is supposedly coming back this week. Later this summer, apparently, a slew of dead DC characters are coming back en masse. True, they’ll be sort-of zombies, but you can bet that the more popular characters will somehow end up whole. Comic book heroes die, nobody even bothers to cancel their newspaper deliveries.
So in the DC and Marvel Universes, how is it possible for anybody to look at God/Jesus/Allah and see Somebody worthy of worship?

I haven’t seen Watchmen yet, but I have noticed that there doesn’t seem to be a single review of the film that fails to mention Dr. Manhattan’s penis. This seems to be a major obsession. I’ve heard rumors that the studio is negotiating to give Dr. Manhattan’s penis its own spin-off.
The son of one of my wife’s friends asked “If this is supposed to be the most powerful man in the universe, why can’t he find himself a pair of pants?” The kid’s missing the point: If the most powerful man in the universe wants to run around with everything hanging out, who’s going to tell him he can’t? “Hey, buddy, you got a problem with it? Talk to the penis.”
