Why Does The Flash Need A Car?

I picked one of these up the other day and love the design, but it obviously begs the question — why would The Flash need a car?

My working hypothesis: this is like on of those Flintstones cars that doesn’t have an engine, but rather The Flash sticks his feet through the floorboards and gets to motoring while a goofy sound effect plays in the background.

(Whereas my wife wonders what the hell I needed with a car that even The Flash doesn’t seem to need. Working hypothesis: to go with the other 100 or so super-hero themed cars and motorcycles, of course!)

DC Direct Zatanna 1:6 Scale Action Figure

Like all the other DC Direct 1:6 scale female figure, the hair on this Zatanna figure is molded plastic which is a major annoyance. But if you can get past that, this isn’t a half-bad figure. And since nobody seems to collect Zatanna, this figure which has an MSRP of $99.99 and was released in November 2009 can already be found for about $60 online.
