I haven’t read comics since college, so I don’t really care whethere there are six different Spider Man characters, or who gets to be Robin this year.
But, I did get to thinking about some characters who have endured for 75 years – The Three Stooges.
What if in an alternative universe, there was no Larry, and Moe, Curly and Shemp were all Stooges at the same time? Would Shemp be “the guy in the middle?” Would his “eepeepeepeepeep” be the equal to Larry’s “Owwwwwwwww”?
Or would having Curly and Shemp in the lineup at the same time spin the earth out of balance and ultimately destroy the universe?
