1991, New Candidates

1991 New Candidates

Much to the consternation of mothers everywhere, 1991 was about ripped jeans and tatty flannels. And there were goatees and long hair, too. And angst.

Actually, for one of us here at the Hall of Miller and Eric, every year since 1991 has been about ripped jeans and tatty flannels. The goatee is now a beard, the long hair is now shorter, and the angst only manifests itself during difficult financial decision making.


What happens on the upper lip stays on the upper lip

But 1991 at the HoME shouldn’t involve too many difficult decisions. While Captain America’s civilian identity walks amongst our newbies, that famous name won’t shield him from the obit-man should that be his fate. If a certain famous fireman should be smothered by us, he won’t be able to hang on to his handlebars for support. And if a longtime lefty doesn’t like to get the hook, we’ll ‘Koos us.

Anyway, we’ve got three new slots plus nine deferred ones to fill, so it’s time to get crackin’ once again.

One thought on “1991 New Candidates

  1. I know everybody, including me, uses “underrated” way to much. But Staub is truly one of the most underrated players of the era.
