Captain Kerosene


A World War Two related tale enabled me to revive a character I created for Marvel (UK) in the 1990s Captain Kerosene. Now a crazy old man, Captain K was originally a reservist for the Invaders, but his powers were always considered too unstable to use. This appearance gave us an excuse to show his long-awaited origin. Awesome art by Kev Hopgood.

Salesman: "How will you use your chronograph?" Customer: "Use it? I hadn't thought about that." Chronographs are not just for timing races - they offer many practical uses. Tracking cooking times, parking meters, walks or runs, bike rides, exercise routines, meetings, and guaranteed pizza delivery are often omega replica cited. So is determining the shortest commuting route. With your chronograph, you can find out how long an "instant" oil change really takes. Or, try this: when they tell you your table will be ready in five minutes, press the start button. When your wife says she will be ready in five minutes, press the no, wait, that's a bad idea. Lawyers replica breitling and others who sell units of time can track billable hours. Or you can pass the time by measuring intervals spent stuck in traffic, watching TV commercials, or waiting for the rolex replica doctor/dentist. Activate your chronograph for a short time when you have an idea you want to remember. Later, when you see the odd elapsed time, it will jog your memory (assuming the idea is still in there). Other replique montre uses require that the watch have particular features. For example, most chronographs can't be operated under water, and many can't time hours-long events. Some chronographs are designed to run continuously, while others are not (more on this later). Choose carefully if these are features you desire.
