Excuse me, do you have the time?

You know what I like about the Clock King?

He clearly made his costume himself.

It looks like what you end up with when you're trying to throw a Halloween costume together at the last minute. Let's see...I've got some blue pyjamas...I could paint some clocks on those. And I have this green hooded cape. That doesn't really match, and I don't really need it for anything...but it might look kinda cool. I suppose if I wear these green underwear over the pjs that would sort of match the cape. It would bring it all together. I'll need some sort of mask...preferably something that almost completely obscures my vision. I'll just poke some eye holes in this clock face, I guess. And secure it to my head with this rubber band. Now just add the white rubber boots and long blue gloves...voila! Alright, it's not as cool as my original design...the one where I had actual working clock gears rotating on my chest...but I'm on a budget here.

Lookin' good, Clock King! Though I'm kind of surprised that he doesn't seem to be wearing a watch.

Oh, and he also looks like Charles Bronson with his mask off:

Gee, Ollie and Roy. Way to rub it in! Granted Clock King is a doofus, but do you HAVE to make such a deal out of it?

I assume that he was robbing that store to make the money to get an ACTUAL costume made?

That's one of the great things about being a superhero - you get to make terrible puns about your enemies.

They have a really good union - full dental, too.

Isn't his secret identity "William Tockman" or something too? I love when stuff like that happens--there was a lame Marvel villain named the Basilisk whose actual name was--wait for it--Basil Elks.

Okay, I'm just confused; if his time's run out, then how is he going to have plenty of time? Roy, you're an idiot! No wonder you wound up a junkie with bastard offspring.

Roy has bastard offspring too?! Man, that Green Arrow gang is a motley crew.
