Solomon Grundy Calls for More Research into Pediatric Cancer.....

Memphis, TN-During a widely publicized press conference held today at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Solomon Grundy, a former member of both the Legion of Doom and Lex Luthor's Injustice Gang, called for an increase in government financial support of research that may lead to a cure for childhood cancers.

"This is a real shock to the pediatric oncology community," St. Jude spokesperson Jim Whitstock explains. "We really didn't see this coming from someone so, well, I mean, he's an evil two hundred year old zombie for pete's sake."

Grundy, a frequent nemesis of Superman, Batman and the Green Lantern explains "Me Solomon Grundy think children are future. Also me have niece with leukemia."

Knudsen, you are doing a fine public service here. Apparently, you are the only member of the news media who covered Grundy's news conference.

What is with the mainstream news services, that any kind of positive spin on SuperVillains is rountinely ignored? Their superior intellects deserve to be respected, even worshipped. The villains are superbeings too, with feelings and families just like everybody else.

a new and loyal reader,
Dr. Doom

I'm no fan of lazy journalism, the likes of which is frequently displayed by the mainstream media. And I agree that there is often an agenda, especially in regards to coverage of things like science, health, supervillains and our overseas activities in places like the Iraq.
