^Old Captain Armadillo is dead, deal with it!
But he was only the true Captain Armadillo. All those new versions are cheap imitations. I know because he was the first Captain Armadillo I ever read about . . . and my childhood trumps your childhood!
Heck, kids these days have never even seen the old black-and-white "Captain Armadillo" serials, so what do they know? They don't count as real fans!
