Put it on your dick…
good thinking, we don’t have bone structures down there, thus reducing his trips to the hospital for broken bones. you sir are a genius!
And so a new hero born….Super Finger!
Or screaming flying person.
Super Finger would be the super hero that the guy’s finger turns into, after being ripped from the rest of his body.
Right. And it gives villains the finger.
It’s not actually a ring, it’s a belt for a tiny person.
It’s actually a nose ring. That’s why it’s not working properly. He put it on his finger when he should have attached it to his nose.
I… think you are… wrong? It would be entertaining to see it though.
I can think of much worse places to have it pierced through.
I believe it is a belly button ring. Better to put it on the center of mass.
Maybe on a girl. Not so much a fan of navel rings on guys.
I don’t get the association. Is this a parody of any particular comic character?
Ring of power? Green Lantern most likely.
Can’t be. We already have a Green Lantern stand-in.
Going by the color maybe a blue lantern (hope), can’t do much but fly, bring hope, and supercharge other ring bearers.
There isn’t a 1:1 ratio of parody characters to inspirations, and there’s certainly not one Lantern in the DC universe either.
True. I really wouldn’t expect two very close to each other, but the Green Lantern parody arc was a couple hundred pages back, I think. Since it hasn’t been done in so long, it would be safe to do another.
It still probably isn’t intended as a Lantern parody, but your point is valid.
I think it is just going with the common theme of the comics of what would the main negative side effect of super powers. Therefore since it is the ring is imbued with levitation powers only the ring itself actually moves freely and the person is just pulled along.
Hmm, perhaps you could call it something like a monkey’s paw super power? They do a lot of one-off strips like that, in this comic.
Probably, or it might be Captain Sarcastic’s Mighty-O’s ring.
Sarcastro/the psychiatrist’s ring, you mean?
Nah, the MTV short.
Ah. I haven’t had a cable or satellite subscription for at least 7 or 8 years now. I’m not familiar with it.
There’s more than one Green Lantern. Maybe this is a John Stewart parody?
The Legion of Super-Heroes have flight rings, so maybe it’s a reference to that.
Sounds like it then, yeah. I’m not familiar with that group.
They’re like the Justice League, but from the future. And like 75% of them are space aliens.
They get flight rings because I guess they figure it’s better if all superheroes can fly, and not just the ones who already possess that ability. I think they also let you survive in the vacuum of space, but I might be wrong about that.
Ah. Yeah, I haven’t really ever kept up with DC. I mostly just know the most mainstream things from that side of things.
Sounds like a good strategy for the team, though. The mobility boost that would provide to the team is probably one of the greatest across-the-board additions.
Honestly, I don’t really keep up with them either. Mostly I just acquire this knowledge through osmosis, I guess.
Yup. You pick up about 10% of stuff, and every once in a while, when something obscure pops up, it randomly happens to be within your very limited knowledge of the subject.
The ring has a lot of uses, like providing communication among the Legion members in the vacuum of space and distance communication.
Sometimes is comparable to a Green Lantern ring:
I assume this would apply to any realm with a ring of flight, any decent fantasy realm with magic. Noticeably in Disc World, telekinesis did cause a counter-force on the brain, and arm-fall-off boy wasn’t able to use Phantom Girl’s flight ring. (according to
I hereby dub this hero…Dead Weight! ‘Cause if he keeps flying like that, that’s all he’ll be soon enough.
Or Captain Nine Fingers… (gets punched while flying) wait. Eight Fingers!
The amazing finger and his sidekick, deadweight, in action!
I sense an impending Robin-incident, in the not-too-distant future.
Especially if he pulls more than one G.
Mmmm I wonder how you could use that power effectively… Let’s see…
Well an obvious answer would be “don’t wear the ring, put it on a board or something and ride the board, duh”
But what if the ring only work when worn? I think the board idea still work, you would just like… need to bend low to grab the opposites edges of the board with your hand. The one wearing the ring so that instead of it draggin you it lift the board and the other hand for stability/preventing youself from flipping over.
Maybe he could create a structure, short of a modified knucklebuster to split the stress of the ring’s pull between all the fingers and the hand. Still not comfortable but a great deal less painful. Maybe things could be pushed farther, create some kind of exoskeleton to divide the stress on his whole body.
Lower budget solution would be wearing rollerblades or using a skateboard and using the ring pull yourself forward without actually lifting yourself. Probably not the most impressive but depending on how fast it goes you could save some money, or even make some.
It all depend on how the ring works, how much control he has on it… In fact if he can control the ring with his mind and the ring doesn’t need to be worn to fly maybe he can use it as a remote controlled weapon.
But knowing this universe I’m going this ring work in the most inconvenient way, which make it utterly useless.
Iron man armor. Let the ring lift the armor.
Mount the ring into a board, and it’d be finger-activated and finger-controlled.
I don’t think he realizes the full properties of that ring yet:
#1: It’s cursed so he can’t take it off.
#2: It mystically augments his structural cohesiveness, such that he can’t be torn limb from limb; his bone structure WILL remain intact (even if his bones are reduced to powder, they will still keep their shape). There is no other form of immunity granted, not even against pain.
#3: He doesn’t have *full* control over it…such as, it doesn’t obey when he wants to land. Or land *safely*, anyway.
Or the ring makers hate fingers. Or the ring makers are sadists. Or the ring makers are stupid. Or this is a practice ring that someone made… poorly. Or you need to RTFM before using, and adjust the settings correctly.
Well, they did say that the ring is infused with the power of flight. They didn’t say that it would grant the wearer the power of flight. The ring can fly when activated. The wearer on the other hand……
I wonder if he was the “chosen one” because he still has all his fingers.
Lousy extradimensional entities and their sub-standard design schemes….
How do you know it was substandard? Maybe the extra-dimensional entities are just assholes, and this is how they get their laughs.
Or maybe those extra-dimensional beings transform into something like worms when they manifest in this dimension. A ring would fit them like a belt.
Another addition to the stellar corps?
