The small robot looks similar to the first prototype for the Android mascot: www.theverge.com/2013/1/3/3833376/the-fi...cots-were-terrifying
Although the talking dirty and the cigarette butts bring to mind a certain Bender Bending Rodriguez.
Or some kind of dildo-bot. Offhand, I don't remember any story with a dildo-bot.

A couple clarifications:
1. Since the overall theme seems to be Infinity Inc, I'm guessing that the scarab brooch comes from the Silver Scarab (son of the Golden Age Hawkman and Hawkgirl), not from the Blue Beetle.
2. The Cosmic Converter Belt was indeed Silvester Pemberton's (Star-Spangled Kid/Skyman) gimmick, but Courtney Whitmore (the second Star-Spangled Kid) was not his stepdaughter; rather, she was the stepdaughter of Pemberton's former sidekick, Pat Dugan a.k.a. Stripesy (who became *her* sidekick using an armored suit named S.T.R.I.P.E.) After Jack Knight (the seventh Starman) retired from superheroing, he gave her his power staff, and she took the name Stargirl.

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

No, although given what its intended use was, and how it actually performed it, this is uncomfortably close. If I were Annarchy, I would be afraid around this thing (though I am not sure if 'fear' is a concept she understands).

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!

Behind the tower is a seaplane hangar. Where it has been all these years remains a mystery which at least two different navies would like answered, as is how it got to Whateley.



is this a double hull sub? originally built for the Japanese Imperial Navy?

No, this is Surcouf. If Surcouf wasn't the strangest submarine ever built, it ranks up there. The Washington Naval Treaty limited cruiser construction, while submarines were more or less unlimited. The French had a brilliant idea, in the tradition of all the other brilliant French military ideas of the last two centuries: build a submarine that could function as a cruiser. The glorious success of the idea is demonstrated by how many other submarine-cruisers were built.

Hey, at least it wasn't a submarine aircraft carrier...

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.

A teenaged girl, possibly of Polynesian, Latin American, or mixed African and Asian descent, wearing a scarf, and a pair of goggles which are perched on her head. Over her shoulder is a carryall covered in travel stickers reading things such as 'Hogwarts', 'Cynosure', and 'Tannhauser Gate'. She insists that she isn't lost, however, because she's always right where she needs to be.

I'll answer one of my outstanding items RSN, but for now I have a new one: a large suit of full-plate armor which appears to be enameled in black, with yellow highlights. Attached to the back is a pole carrying a white flag. The owner will want this back eventually, but for now he's earned that respite he said he'd never had before.

If it was, the steel trousers would be rusted
