To add to the Measles back-story, one also has to add his failed armored car heist w/ Wormy & Dewdrop during Tracy’s 50th anniversary story back in late 1981.
This is why I wished the strip had done clean re-boot when the new team took over. It’s imploding under its own mythology & while long-time, older readers are rewarded via nostalgia…this methodology goes a long way deterring new fans. And if this strip is to survive beyond the Curtis/Staton 2-3 year contract…it will need a new generation of fans.
