Boomerang - My Boomerang Won't Comeback - J.D. Coughlan

Panel 1: A stage in a seedy comedy club. Various low-grade supervillains from DC and Marvel sit in the audience. A banner reads "ANNUAL SUPERVILLAIN INSULT COMIC TOURNAMENT". On one side of the stage is Boomerang, on the other is Captain Boomerang. For simplicity, they are referred to here by their surnames (Myers and Harkness, respectively).

HARKNESS: Sorry, mate, but I don't even know who you are. Were you one of the Goblins?

MYERS: Hey, at least I was the leader of my team. You weren't even the best captain in yours.

AUDIENCE: Oooooooooooh!

Panel 2: Close-up on Harkness. He remains smug.

HARKNESS: Oh that's right; the Sinister Second-stringers.

AUDIENCE (O.P.): Hahaha!

Panel 3: Close-up on Myers, also smug.

MYERS: I know, I know, it's not like being handpicked for a team called "the Suicide Squad." How bad d'you have to be to get chosen for a team whose mission is to die?

AUDIENCE (O.P.): Hahahahahahahaha!

Panel 4: On Harkness again, angrier. Pointing at Myers.

HARKNESS: I'm not the one who's been defeated by just about every hero out there. Spider-Man, Hulk, Daredevil, even bloody Iron Fist!

Panel 5: On Myers again, extremely smug.

MYERS: Whereas you've only ever been defeated by the Flash... and Robin's dad.

AUDIENCE (O.P.): Oooooooooh!

Panel 6: Shot of the stage again. Harkness looks grumpily defeated. Myers shrugs to the audience.

MYERS: Looks like this boomerang won't comeback!
