Double Dare Adventures #1 (Harvey Comics, Dec. 1966)

To paraphrase Rosey Grier:

"I love Bee-Man. And I'd like all of you to love him too. And so tonight, when you hit your knees, please ask God to love him."

Why?, You might ask....

How can you not love someone like's like he swallowed a bottle of hyperbole pills (the same brand that Stan Lee has been taking for 50 years)....

So....what's Bee-Man's deal? Why's he so full of hate for the human race?

He got stung by bees. No shit. I couldn't make this up if I wanted to....but take note: they were really fucking BIG bees from outer space. If'n I'd gotten stung by space bees, I'd be looking for something useful to do with it myself. Like take over the' stuff.

The thing that makes Bee-Man such an oddity is the fact that he's one of the few strips of the era that whose protagonist was a bad guy. Too bad he was also incredibly goofy, as well.
