You know the one. Superhero leaps and lands, with: flat back. One hand directly beneath him/her, one arm extended. One leg tucked under, one leg out at an awkward 45 degree angle.
Where did this come from? I never read comic books much as a kid, and I’m not into Marvel movies…I can picture it in The Matrix, though. So who did it first?
Is there a mash-up of every usage – like the Wilhelm Scream?
