Similar, but … more Golden Age DC. He couldn't grow to Giant-Man/Goliath size, but he could shrink to literally subatomic size, which let him do things like travel through telephone lines. All while controlling not only his size but his mass, so that he could pop out of a phone, grow to a few inches high while in… »
She can obey the law — she can even be justified — in ways that still help her lose an election, which is what I see shaping up here.
But I won't pretend to say whether she is "fit to be president," considering what a stunning number of dopes, crooks and manipulators who have actually held the job. And it's not just… »
