.FANTASTIC PRODUCT PLACEMENT
Torch Roasts Burgers to Flame Broiled Perfection!

Burger King has a promotional deal going with the Fantastic Four movie. They'll be offering different FF toys at Burger Kings (like the light-up torch firgure pictured right), and the FF movie, in return, will feature some of the most blatant product placements ever seen in film! Case in point: the picture above. You may not see it, but there's a discreet little Burger King sign in the background. It's hard to notice, what with it being billboard sized, and filling the entire frame and all. It looks like they're trying to make a joke out of it by having Johnny walk in front of this sign, which just HAPPENS to say: "Fire grilled perfection." Get it? FIRE-GRILLER ON!

ROBBY DIALS H FOR HERO
.
Meet... The Cometeer!

When I dial B for BLOG, I turn into a HUMAN BLOG, and a new issue appears on this site -- but when I dial H for HERO, I turn into a SUPERHERO! A different one almost every time. At least 1,001. The Cometeer is one of my favorites, because it was only the second hero I ever turned into, right after I first became Giantboy! Both from House of Mystery #156 -- sigh -- my origin story! That's right, reader. I gots my very own origin story. Jealous much?

Let me tell you, it's shocking enough being transformed into a giant boy, but turning into a human comet was worse! See, at first, I didn't know that every time I used my dial, I would change into a DIFFERENT superhero. I "fingered" my dial, like it says in the caption below. Errr... never mind about the fingering part. Anyway, here I was, all ready to be changed into Giantboy, like I was the first time , and BAM! Suddenly, I got all ... tingly. I felt myself changing into something pretty weird.

But as you'll see, I adapted almost immediately to my new form, and set out to prevent a dam from breaking, and flooding the town! Don't believe me? OK -- I'll post EVERY SINGLE PANEL from the ENTIRE CAREER of the Cometeer right here on Dial B for BLOG. It's not quite as long as it sounds. Here it is, reader... enjoy!

My finest hour -- I stopped the dam from breaking! Yay Cometeer!

... and, luckily for me, they DIDN'T suspect me as Robby Reed! And thus ended the
brief but illustrious career of THE COMETEER. Hey, don't laugh. I did save that dam!
