Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for December 04, 1988
calvin: who is this mysterious masked man?? and why has he never been photographed together with handsome, six-year-old millionaire playboy calvin? a solitary caped figure runs across a moonlit building top! a crimson bolt blasts across the night sky, striking fear into the hearts of all evildoers! yes, it's stupendous man, champion of liberty, defender of free will! some diabolical fiend threatens to establish a totalitarian system of rule! only stupendous man can save the day! aha! just as i suspected! my evil archnemesis, mom-lady! mom: didn't i tell you to go to bed?!!? calvin: oh, no! stupendous man's stupendous powers are no match against his adversary! stupendous man is vanquished! this would have been plenty humiliating without the goodnight kiss. mom: and take off that silly hood before you smother in your sleep.
