Vacation's End

I, Doctor Polaris, have returned!

I will spare you the astonishing stories of my vacation... For now. Instead, I wish to discuss the recent October solicitations for DC Comics.

Behold! Blue Beetle #32:

The man behind all the recent mayhem comes out of the Super-Villain closet. Meet the new Doctor Polaris and find out what else he has in store for Blue Beetle!
On sale October 22 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US
It would appear that someone -- perhaps myself -- has come out of the "Super-Villain Closet." I do not know where this closet is located. Though I imagine that in addition to storing incognito super-villains and their costumes, it also stores copious quantities of gimicky weapons. (razor boomerangs, umbrella machine guns, etc.)

But I digress. The important point here is that come October Doctor Polaris is featured on the cover of a major comic book. This, gentle readers, is cause for celebration. Let the word ring forth from this time and place: Polaris is pleased.

But know also that I will be considerably less pleased if it is revealed that the "new" Doctor Polaris is not another of my personalities, awakened during alcohol-induced blackouts.

Admittedly, that doesn't happen often. But it does happen on occasion, and I did spend some time in Mexico on my vacation. Perhaps tequila explains my appearance in Blue Beetle...

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that the REAL Doctor Polaris will be making an appearance, and not some trumped-up imposter.

If it IS you, please go easy on the new Blue Beetle however. He's really a very nice boy.
