It was the original Red Tornado who wore a pot as a helmet.

I don't think print comedy necessrily died. I just think all the best of the print comedy crop are doing their thing on the internet instead of the more traditional printed periodicals.

modern comics are almost all print comedy,
a FARCE THAT IS!
Written by awful persons,
who have no idea of stylistic story telling
and lack any form of syntactical tact,
I'd say its worse than fan-fiction,
but it's just about on par.

I know it has nothing to do with the subject, but this article reminded me of the "What If..." comics with the Watcher(s) giving alternate timelines and story archs. For example, one issue would be "What if Jean Grey never became Phoenix" or "What If Bruce Banner never became the Hulk", etc. I don't know why, but that just popped into my head. 'Nuff Said.

"It was the original Red Tornado who wore a pot as a helmet."
I was going to say Don Quixote, but does he not count as a hero?

DQ wore a shaving bowl, and I do not think he counts as a superhero.

Not Brand Echh ran in 67 and 68, so we're talking some time ago.

I am, in fact, a comic geek. For example, the Red Tornado we are referring to is a woman.

When I saw the title, "Not Brand Ecch", I thought it was a Mad parody special that they've done from time to time. While I haven't read the rag in many years, I used to grab one while shopping with my grandparents, I wouldn't think that they've tamed or decreased in quality through the years. They've just changed along with the audience. It also seems that the source material that they spoof these days is getting easier and easier to crack on because the quality of the film and television industries has suffered greatly through the decades. I mean, how good can a spoof of a basically spoof be? Ever crack jokes about Police Squad? I just think that back in the day, they had to TRY to make jokes and funniness. Except for their political spoofage, those guys have always been right on the line of idiocy and ripe for satire and parody.

Oddly enough, Forbush Man showed up in Nextwave, recently. He had some form of mind-control powers and would make people see their worst nightmares, I believe. However, his mind powers didn't work on Tabetha (Boom-Boom, Boomer, whatever) because she didn't have a mind, lol.

Nextwave was so wacky. We need a review of that sometime soon, because its pure unadulturated insanity.

you speak of Ma Hunkel, correct? (the original Red Tornado) I know of her not through the recent JSA but through THIS:

Yes, DCD made some awesomely obscure choices for their Minimates! There is even a Lobo and Ambush Bug two pack!
