So my dryer died.
Apparently the heating element (or “the guts that make it hot”) have failed. Evidence was found of wet unheated clothing with motion sickness from pointless spinning.
For the life of me, I can’t remember off the top of my head if it’s gas or electric but I have to buy a new one. I can’t do much research without knowing this key attribute in the decision tree. After all, if you’re not aware, buying a gas dryer vs an electric one is a different cost for the same size/same feature dryer.
BUT I SWEAR, WITH MY FIST IN THE AIR, MY DRYER, YOU WILL BE AVENGED! I WILL BECOME AN AVENGER!

Which brings me to a copy of The Avenger #1
Nooo this isn’t the Avengers. It’s THE Avenger. He’s from 1955. They’re from 1963.
He’s not to be confused with The Avenger, the pulp comic hero.
And no, he’s not a Dodge Avenger, although he is quite the acrobat in the cover to issue #1 while attacking a foreign built automobile.
I’m talking about The Avenger, the scientist-turned-superhero who fought to avenge the death of his brother at the hands of Cold War Russian baddies. I don’t think the ideal costume to take on the Ruskie Reds would be a red leotard, but who am I to judge? It is oddly familiar, thinking about red tights, russians, and jumping and leaping….
Can’t put my finger on it. But how, HOW can I possibly tie this all together? Well, let’s see…
My dryer died.
I need to avenge its death.
I need to choose an avenger.
I need to buy American (or at least not Russian).
Red seems to be a recurring color.
SO I end up here:
Whirlpool – 7.0 Cu Ft. 14-Cycle Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer – Magna Red Gloss
My god… this is what happens when you let comic books make decisions for you.
