Captain America smoked too. Captain America #110, page 2 (Steranko art):

Ahh...but that's just a pipe, which many superheroes of that time smoked occasionally. But Tony Stark smoked cigarettes....an utter abomination to our health-conscious overlords!

In other words....PURE EVIL!

Jeff Rients

Reed Richards smokes a pipe.
The Red Skull smokes cigarettes.
Therefore: Pipe smoking is rad while cigarette smokers are Nazis.

Science doesn't lie, folks.

I wasn't going to play the science card just yet, but I thank Jeff for stepping to the plate and telling it like it is.


I don't think we wanna be currently using Reed Richards as a paragon a virtue and right.

Generally, though, I'd support this scientific generalization:

Cigarettes=evil agenda
Pipe=down-home sensibility
Cigar=takes no guff

Give me stogie-munchin' Ben Grimm, Nick Fury, or Logan anyday.

So where does that leave the snuff-chewers like the Rhino and Baron Mordo?

Excellent dancers.


Stan and Jack weren't old Shell Head's lone creators. Don't sell short Stan's brother Larry and Don Heck.
