Lot of comic stuff on my dash lately and it’s made me think of issue 17 of the Jaime’s original run. It’s basically has everything that made the title great in one issue and, to me anyway, is the single greatest comic issue ever written.

Do not barricade the door with damp towels.
Do not wave a white flag out of the window.
Do not take the plunge from several storeys up.
Do not shed a tear for your lover trapped behind a wall of flame.
Do not curse the combination of fuel, heat, and oxygen.
Do not ask why the fire fighters are not coming.
When they say: Don’t fight fire with fire.
What they mean is: Stand and burn.

You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone
