Finally, we’d like to take a moment to honor the forgotten beards. Those bearded men who, throughout the month of November, slipped through our fingers.
Let’s say the evil Black Diamond terrorist cell seizes an Alpine resort, and GI Joe needs to send an agent to rescue the hostages. You’d better believe they’ll turn to Snowjob, their resident skiing-themed agent. Also? I think that insincere suggestion I made might be the coolest idea for a Snowjob story to date.
Brock Samson grow a beard (and a gut) between seasons of the Venture Brothers, but it wasn’t long before he was clean-shaven and back down to fighting weight.
In Marvel’s Wha…Huh? one-shot a few-years back, Mark Millar and Jim Mahfood treated us to a bewhiskered version of the Avengers. And we never got the chance to thank them!
In the Justice League animated series 2-parter Hereafter, Superman is catapulted through time to a post-apocalyptic wasteland where he becomes a sort of Sci-Fi barbarian until an unlikely ally comes to his aid. Definitely worth a look, if you haven’t seen it.
I pity the fool who don’t take his glamor shots seriously! Mr. T’s bearded face adorned our televisions, lunchboxes, and even our cereal boxes for the good part of the decade. He reminded us to drink our milk, he treated his mother like a saint, and he could turn any vehicle into a tank over the course of a 2 minute montage.
Extra points to any God that has a beard, a lot of them can choose what form to take and they purposely pick one with a beard.
I couldn’t leave out hobo ass kicking Matt Murdock from the Daredevil Born Again storyline. It’s such a rarity seeing Murdock with facial that I literally had to take a picture of the panel because I couldn’t find a decent one online.
Seneca Crane, head Gamemaker in The Hunger Games, sports the sweetest beard I’ve ever seen. May the Beard be ever in your favor.
Now you can put Seneca’s beard on anyone!
How can we not honor this facial hair? This man is directly responsible for a significant portion of the billions of potato fragments found in beards each year.
I really just wanted to write about Wilson, but since he doesn’t have a beard, I guess we’ll include Tom Hanks
