Character Donation #61
There's "silly" as in, "Oh, God! Robotman has a robot dog!" No, actually, that's "precious." ;-)
...and then there's just SILLY!
In a universe where women deflect bullets with bracelets and Earthmen receive power rings fueled on willpower, where exactly does SPACE CABBY fit into it all?
Answer: He doesn't.
What does he do?
He drives a frickin'... cab...in...The...22nd...century. Meaning it'll probably be just as hard for a Black man to hail a cab in the future as it is today.
Anyways, Marvel could use this character alot better than DC ever could. Just Imagine...Stan Lee! recreating Space Cabby as the cosmic "sage" of The Marvel Universe, dispensing "philosophy" to the likes of The Silver Surfer, Adam Warlock, Quasar and Thor.
Oh, the possibilities! The potential!
Besides, somebody's gotta take Donations 1 through 60 over to Marvel.
Space Cabby, destiny fulfilled.
Excelsior, Space Cabby! It was nice knowing ya!
