    One of the most memorable, or quoted moments from Season 5 might have been 'borrowed' from DC comics. From The Infinite Evolutions of Batman and Superman (1965)

    Was this the genesis of caveman vs astronaut?

    I thought it was something that happened in the writers room so they decided to incorporate it into the show.

    It might have been. I just thought as Joss is a big comic book guy he might have gotten the inspiration from that.

    Could be. :)
    Batman's forehead does somewhat resemble Angel's in that pic...

    Although if its cavemen vs. atronauts 'from the future' then I definitely think the spacemen would win thanks to that big frontal lobe of theirs.

    The Future Batman looks like an alien from Mars Attacks. Also, Caveman Superman's club looks delicious (not had breakfast yet).

    I was thinking he looks strikingly similar to those guys from Star Trek TOS.

    Agreed. It's clearly a GIANT Bernard Matthews turkey drumstick. Delicious but also deadly in hand-to-hand combat. :)
    Bootiful.

    Aha! Yeah, he surely does. Plus the fact both the comic and show were from the same time.

    Oh man, those Bernard Matthews turkey drums should stay in the past along with Caveman Superman.

    They alwasy tasted like they were past due anyway. Better used as some sort of weapon in that case. :D
