Comic Book Quote of the Month:
Impulse: "I'm confused."
Riddler: "Why?"
Impulse: "It's just…I thought you were a hero. A kind of hero, anyway. Always seeking the truth…"
Riddler: "What?"
Impulse: "Isn't that your trademark? But I thought you didn't have a face…"
Riddler: "I am not THE QUESTION!"

Riddler: "I've planted a bomb just like this one under the porch of one house in this fair burg! In two minutes it'll go off! I've brilliantly condensed the clues to where it is into six rhymed couplets and you need only to solve them to find the bomb. So riddle me this -- What is both red and green, black and white, walks by day and runs by night, never drinks but always drunk -- HEY! "
Impulse: (Appears holding the bomb.) "I just looked under every porch in town until I found it."
Impulse #48
