    The mask in the shape of her eyeglasses is pretty good, too.

    uh-oh, pessimistic view: I now see Gabriela’s parents suing Capt. O for breaking there dears lil wrist.

    I’m not positive, but I believe here in Michigan, where the comic takes place, the bill falls to the driver’s insurance co. since they did get ticketed.

    Beautiful! Go Big O!
    “True story.” And we all know that truth is stranger than fiction.

    This isn’t the first time Mrs. Olsen has made a personal sacrifice for her students. Doesn’t anyone else remember the Christmas series “A Mall and the Right Visitor”? I think it ran in 2010.
    Mrs. O worked as a mall Santa to earn money to take a trip to Vegas, but ended up giving it to a student so she could visit her father. (I think.)
    It was a series that stretched over a few weeks, and was written all in rhyme. Really very well done.
    I’ve tried to find it, to no avail. All I could find is this two strip excerpt, about half way down the page, here.

    You know, it just occurred to me – every superhero needs a theme song. Frazz…? Maybe sung by her students?
    Teachers as unsung heroes, no more!

    and Sideshow Starlet:


    And the shoes – don’t forget the shoes. – Though I’m with Edna Mode on the cape . . .

    She doesn’t look any worse in spandex than a lot of the Real Life Superheroes who actually exist and insist on wearing it in public.

    The “Olsen/Santa” strip run was the 2003 NEA holiday comics special but it does not appear to be online anymore.

    As a kid i spent a lot of time with my Grandparents and Mrs Olson would have fit right in with the clique of old Norwegian women Grandma hung out with at church


    I learned to drink strong coffee during many coffee and cookie sessions with them, I suspect those old ladies were making my Nuclear Coffee long before I ever discovered it


    I can totally picture a Nuclear Coffee powered Mrs O, but I would really rather not have pictured her in Spandex
