In the Silver AgeSuperman disguised the multi-ton key to his Fortress of Solitude as an "airplane marker" pointing to the North Pole. He maintained this facade well into the Bronze Agelong after such markers had become forgotten relics — but there's still a line of them running across the United Statesand yes, they used to be painted bright yellow.
Parsed by Chinese characters, it would be Kong Ke-nan.
And Kong is the surname of none other than Confucius derived from Kong Fu-zi. For instance, according to the Romans the Celtic people, as a rule, left no written records the historical Gauls really were said to be terrified of the sky falling on their heads, and to have shot arrows at the sky during thunderstorms to just dare it to come down.
Occasionally Cacofonix will be depicted with his instruments besides his signature lyre, usually a ridiculous-looking bagpipe-like thing and an even more ridiculous horn with an animal head, all of which are the instruments the real Gauls would have used — bagpipe-like instruments were known to have been played by the Romans notably by Nero, who was also said to have been very bad at itand the horn is a carnyx, a kind of early trumpet with a boar's mouth-shaped bell.
At Varius Flavus's orgy in Asterix in Switzerland, the women are wearing ridiculous, apocalyptic hairstyles with a bonnet-shaped mass of tight curls at the front of the head.
That is a hairstyle seen quite commonly on busts of rich Roman women. One gag in Asterix the Gladiator involves a trio of Romans in silly costumes walking into the arena covered in advertising slogans before a gladiator fight, while Caesar wonders whether or not people are bothered by all of the commercials.
This is obviously a joke about television advertising but was an actual practice — gladiator matches were preceded by advertising and sometimes the gladiators themselves would carry advertising pennants, wear slogans or use sponsored equipment.
Many fans had thought that Linkara made up "It's magic, I don't have to explain it," unaware that it's a jab at Joe Quesadawho said it to justify the controversial changes made to Spider-Man in One More Day.
The exact quote is a case of Beam Me Up, Scotty! Quesada, upon being asked why he essentially responded with "It's magic. We don't need to explain it," in regards to the story, said that other Marvel characters used magic and no one needed an explanation for those.
One of the many things that Linkara criticized from the comic Holy Terror was the ridiculous looking knife on the cover page with spikes on the underside of the guard. In a later video, he says it was pointed out to him by a fan that the ridiculous looking knife actually exists, although the spikes on the underside of the guard would be detached from it if wielded as a weapon.
The Solicitine sisterhood in Castle Waiting have been criticised by some readers as imposing modern feminist ideals on Middle Ages female monasticism.
However, they are very similar to the real beguine movement in Middle Ages Northern Europe, which similarly involved women living together as a religious order with significantly laxer conditions than full nuns - notably, and as depicted in the comic, they were allowed to own property and run businesses, and to leave the community without question if they decided that they wanted to marry a man.
People smile in disbelief today if you tell them Illustrator Frank Frazetta 's art, and similar heroic fantasy creations including some pretty good amateur works, used to appear on vans.

Some fans were likewise unaware that Hawk the Slayer is a real movie. Though this may become less of an example since Hawk the Slayer has been featured on Rifftrax.

It's got to be a fake, right? Mint tried it, from to In the 35 years it was produced, less than half-a million were struck, at all three U. There was a Garfield strip where he put on another performance on top of the fence and had money thrown at him by the resident of some distant Pacific island in the form of a millstone.
The Yap islands in the Pacific really do use enormous round stone discs with a hole in the middle as a form of currency. See The Other Wiki for details. Anyone who grew up in the '60s or '70s would remember the Yap stone coin's frequent appearances in Ripley's Believe It or Not!
Most people in Sweden, where Elvis is published, know that Smurf Hits is a real thing. But the fact that the song that Elvis' daughter is listening to, which goes "Kokobom smurf smurf, kokobom smurf smurf," is real will surprise a lot of readers since it sounds more like a parody.
