This story takes place a few years back when there were a lot less Marvel Comic character films out and I was less familiar with the ones that were. I was a DC Comics fan when I was growing up and never read Marvel Comics. My exposure to Marvel Comics where from TV shows for Spiderman, Captain America, The Hulk and The Fantastic Four. Even when these shows were on, I rarely watched them.
Halloween was a big thing for the teenagers in the town where I grew up. Sales of toilet paper and soap increased exponentially at all of the grocery stores. These sales went to teens who had never been to the grocery store without their mom and mothers restocking their shelves at home that had been raided by their teens. The sales of toilet paper and soap paled in comparison to the sale of eggs. Egg throwing on Halloween was the favorite pastime of most teenagers in our little town and the surrounding community. As the local police force turned a blind eye to everything but the worst of hijinks, our fair city became a little Hershey’s omelet every October 31.
TheThe Halloween party for my fraternity was approaching during my freshman year of college. One of my best friends and I decided that we would go to the party dressed as a couple of the members of the administrative staff of the school. We selected this couple because of their distinct appearance. He was going to go as a rather large member of the administration and I planned to go as the man’s wife. At the time, she served as the Dean of Students. The lady had a fashion sense that appeared to be more appropriate for the 1950’s rather than the early 1980’s. He had a hard time coming up with a costume that captured the essence of the man and he backed out of the plan. I stuck with the original idea and recruited a couple of people to help me put together a costume that would be as authentic as possible.
