(30) Flash #115
by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson

Here's Flash, fastest man alive, suddenly weighing in at 1,000 pounds! That WOULD make it a bit difficult to run, but would thinking "I'm becoming so fat I can hardly run!" really be anyone's first reaction to being suddenly and inexplicably made this FAT? I doubt it.

Instead, they'd probably rush to a mirror and scream! Then call Jenny Craig and ask what the hell happened. "I swear I stuck to the plan!" You know what, reader? The Scarlet Speedster's only partly-puzzled reaction to his pleasantly plump plight is just more than just a little bit ...

(29) Superman #221
by Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson

Flash weighed only a mere 1,000 pounds. Piker! Superman easily tops that amount in "The Two Ton Superman!" He's so fat he literally busts out of a phone booth, as he thinks "I've become a Super-Fatso!"

But look at him! THAT'S "two tons"? He's definitely on the heavy side, but 4,000 pounds? Labeling the overweight Man of Steel "two tons" is a major put-down of overweight people that would never be used in a modern comic. Why? Well, for one thing, many of them read comics. For another, it's politically incorrect. And finally, because the whole scene is exceedingly (guess what) ...
SICK!

(28) Jimmy Olsen #59
by Curt Swan

They were jealous of Jimmy Olsen's "good looks," so they changed him into a "freak." And what constitutes a "freak"? Well, what else? He's FAT! And all fat people are freaks, right Silver Age DC editors? Yes, I can see they also gave Jimmy big pointy ears, but you know that's not why he's called a freak. It's the weight. "I'm a human balloon!" Jimbo laments to Superman.

Superman, ever the optimist, sees Jimmy, and immediately thinks, "There's no hope that he'll ever change back to normal again!" Thanks a bunch, "pal." Join those three laughing goons in mocking poor, hopelessly fat Jimmy the freak, why don't you? That is not nice, that is wrong, and that is ...
SICK!

(27) Lois Lane #5
by Curt Swan and Stan Kaye

Lois Lane, never at a loss for strange transformations, gets fat in this issue. Or not just "fat," but "the Fattest Girl in Metropolis!" Obviously a city where REALLY fat people are not allowed to enter. So what does Lois worry about? Her health? A heart attack? No! She has but one thought, which she must say out loud: "If Superman ever saw me now, I'd die!"

That's bad enough, but look who's just around the corner -- Lois' "boyfriend," good old Superman! Can't he hear what she just said? She said she'd DIE, you cad! Take a hint. Fly away! What are you doing there anyway, stalking her? If you let Lois see you, you are just plain ...
SICK!

(26) JLA #7
by Mike Sekowsky and Murphy Anderson

Once, the entire JLA had their bodies transformed into weird shapes. GA got squashed, GL was stretched, Flash had his usual huge head -- and Wonder Woman? Well, she's a "woman," so naturally she became FAT! But here's the really twisted part: Look at her expression as she checks out her lovely new "figure." She's grinning ear to ear! She's one happy fat chick!

I, Robby Reed, will pay one million dollars to the first person who can show me ANY woman on planet Earth who would react the same way to being so transformed. WW's reaction is just totally, totally abnormal, another word for ...
