It's fun to rearrange the letters in a word to get a descriptive phrase. For instance, from ELLIOT S! MAGGIN, we get SOMALI EGG LINT, and GENITALS GO SLIM.

Martin Pasko can be rearranged into KARMA IN POST, proof he was made for the internet.

In a description of Weisenger's authoritarianism, Mort Weisenger is WORSE REGIMENT, or if you prefer your Weisengers whimsical, there's METEOR SWINGER.

Reword Al Shroeder, you get LARD HEROES. Though I'm sure Al likes his heroes in fighting trim like the rest of us!

Rearrange the letters in Steve Englehart, and you get AVENGER SHTETL, or THE REGAL EVENTS (appropo, for the guy that created the Avengers "event" story)

Meteor Swinger sounds like a character that Fred Hembeck might have made in the late 70's. Smiley

Well, JULIUS SCHWARTZ gives us:

CHRISTS ZULU JAW...which while nonsensical would be an awesome name for a band.

CULTUS WHIZ JARS.  I think the Branch Davidians used these to relieve themselves after the Feds cut off their running water.

AS WIZ JUST LURCH.  Stage directions for Dumbledore's fight scene?

************

MURPHY ANDERSON finds trouble follows him all his life as he has SPURNED HARMONY.  But then he wins fame and fortune with his invention, the UNDERARM SYPHON.

************

Asked if he ever tired of drawing all the time, CURT SWAN answered, "What else am I going to do? CAN WURST?"  

************

AL PLASTINO hated plane rides thanks to bad experiences with ANAL PILOTS.  He never did master whistling as he had ATONAL LIPS.  In fact, a Mexican beauty once mistook his whistling for a come-on and gave him a LATINO SLAP.  Asked by his friend if it hurt, he said, "Yes, it PAINS ALLOT."  Fearing another slap, he hid behind a display of TALL PIANOS.

************

CARY BATES so loved his beach vacations that he could have fun on even the BAREST CAY.  Though he appeared shy to many, reports are he was a RACY BEAST with the ladies.  

*************

ED HAMILTON made a small fortune during his time with Phillip Morris by developing the MENTHOL AID, and picked up extra cash at night manning the DAM HOTLINE.  He also gained fame as the winner of a Star-Spangled Banner singing contest on TV called ANTHEM IDOL.  He never wore jeans as he was known to LOATHE DENIM.  He was kicked out of a circus act with Tom Thumb when he accidentally INHALED TOM.  

*************

A great lover of trees, nothing pleased WAYNE BORING more than the sight of an ABORNING YEW.  Once he stole a sapling and fled the scene one step ahead of its BAYING OWNER.  Celebrating his escape, he enjoyed a few bottles of vino at the BOGAN WINERY, where he later claimed to have met a BONNY EARWIG.  Suddenly a loudspeaker announced, "OBEY WARNING! Get off the property now!"  Unmoved, he put his feet up on the table and made of himself a YAWNING BORE.

Of course when Wayne Boring took over from Shuster, it was a Gain by Owner.

Quote from: "TELLE"
Siegel and Shuster
Sane Led Sue Rights

You saw me coming; I was trying to come up with one for Siegel and Shuster, but it's tough to make one that has any sense to it. Don't even try using their first names: that leaves you with two Js, and you won't be getting rid of them soon.

Ah, yes, OTTO BINDER.  He authored the infamous expose on the dubious parentage of Dorothy Gale's beloved dog: INBRED TOTO.  When the "Atomic Mouse" book was cancelled, it was he who wrote the RODENT OBIT.  A friend of many celebrities, he was often found in the NOTED ORBIT of Bette Davis.  Sadly, most of his best work is never downloaded from file-sharing sites because of its mysterious BITNET ODOR.

***********

Legion scribe JIM SHOOTER was said to get story ideas by watching the news, after which he would JOT HEROISM down in his notepad whenever he saw it.  His "Comedy Lad" character was rejected by an editor who wrote simply, "OMIT JOSHER."

***********

Homely inker GEORGE KLEIN fell down so much in the DC offices he was nicknamed the KEELING OGRE.  

Fellow inker BOB OKSNER was known to BONK BORES who pretended to be wealthier than they were, proclaiming, "There's nothing worse than a BROKE SNOB!"

***********

NICK CARDY was accused of leading a shady double-life as a pimp named CANDY RICK, but frankly only a DARK CYNIC would believe such rumors.

***********

And though I'm loathe to even bring him up, VINCE COLLETA ran a LITTLE CONCLAVE of rotten inkers out to destroy the comics biz.  Thankfully he was attacked by giant bugs and dragged off to a life of hard labor in the ANT COLLECTIVE.
