I've spent half of today with my arm down a drain, trying to unblock it. That's the glamorous kind of lifestyle I dreamt of when I was a boy.
But what else did I dream of?
I dreamt of having super-powers.
And what of these things that men call, "Super-powers?" Do they bring happiness and contentment into their possessor's life?
There's only one way to find out - and that's to flush our minds down the drain that is the Temporal Vortex, watch it go round and round in circles, and see what the past has to offer us.
The Red Skull's still out to destroy us all.
Only another thirty seven weeks of this story to go.
At this rate, Tony Blair'll be Prime Minister before the Skull finally gets round to killing James Callaghan.
It's the return of the dreaded split covers, as Doc Samson continues his attempt to recruit the Hulk for his psychiatric purposes, while Battle for the Planet of the Apes...
...Hold on a minute.
Will miracles never cease?
The Red Skull's battle with Britain might be showing no signs of ending but, from the looks of it, Marvel's Battle for the Planet of the Apes is finally over. No doubt there'll be street parties all over Ape City.
My razor-sharp senses tell me, from the cover's speech balloons, that we may be blessed with the return of Jason and Alexander.
The preparations for Aunt May's wedding are clearly going swimmingly.
Still, they always say a bad rehearsal means a good wedding.
Fury may have been a flop but, fair play to it, it had easily the best covers of any Marvel UK weekly - not to mention a nifty way with alliteration.
