Comic books have often played out the fantasies of younger males, so it need to come as no surprise that their male characters are virtually constantly single and open to playing the discipline. Mickey in no way wed Minnie ``and in no way will,'' according to a Disney representative. It took 60 years for Superman to marry Lois Lane, following which a plot line was promptly introduced exactly where the Man of Steel split into two separate individuals. Was the timing coincidental? No, we do not believe so.
We can only hope greater items are in shop for Popeye and Olive Oyl, who tie the knot in a comic launched by Ocean Comics this week. But early indications never bode nicely. Popeye once yet again tells his decades-prolonged gal, ``I yam what I yam,'' and has only a cigar band to give her as a ring. He doesn't even consider the corncob pipe from his mouth when he kisses the bride. Ewwww!
Truly, the proceedings are quite tame until the ultimate web page. After they kiss, Popeye tells Olive, ``So 旅遊策劃 we're finally hitched! Well, blow me down!''
Olive replies, ``Later, Popeye, later on.''
