Missed Opportunity: Hostess Fruit Pie Corps!

This frivolous complaints about Blackest Night thread is a fun read. My favorite is on page 4, with these two comments.

Greg Owens:

Nekron was not defeated by the use of delicious Hostess Fruit Pies. Complete and utter failure on DC’s part.


Not just fruit pies, but a fruit pie corps. Seven different-colored pies to represent the flavor spectrum.

I can just imagine DC trying to work the low-rent villains and nonsensical plots from those Hostess ads that were all over late 1970s/early 1980s comics into modern continuity…only to make them all darker and edgier.
