The Calder Mobile?

The hard part would have been driving it while it was hanging from a ceiling.

probably not "the aerodynamic mobile"

Quick! To the Piece of Crap-mobile!

Famous for no apparent reason mobile?

Also, I'd like to admit I laughed aloud at this.

And now everyone's staring at me. Thanks, jerk.

He'd have the Red Thingamajig, of course.

But why are there two 'r's in your title - isn't a querry a groom? Do you still have wedding on the brain?

It would be the CaldeRocket of course! God, I WISH Alexander Calder had been a superhero!

Are you actually looking for THE answer, or is this a You (understood) kind of thing? OK, fine I'll bite.

"To the Mobile Mobile, Spool-of-Wire Lad. Our arch nemisis The Realist has escaped the Guggenheim Correctional Institute yet again!"

yes it would have been the Calder Mobile... and it would have been a De Lorean painted Calder Red.

Mr. Yen,

Excellent point. Perhaps this is why he did not fight crime.

Anand,

Probably not.

Sky Dad,

It took me a long time to realize that art was subjective. I always assumed that people who were famous or in museums were automatically good. I now take great pleasure in walking through galleries judging: crap, art, art, crap, art, art, crap, crap, crap, art, crap, fantastic load of unbelievable crap! Who slept with whom to have that hanging in this museum? Etc.

P@D,

Had I known, I would have made sure I posted this right when you were drinking a glass of milk!

GkL,

Mistake? What mistake?

Laaw-yuhr,

The flip side of the coin is, why are all superheroes crime fighters? Take Aquaman. He could have been the best marine biologist ever! But as a crime fighter...

Pezda,

I'm not sure. I secretly wanted someone to respond with the "correct" answer as you did (spot on by the way,) but now that I see it I think it may have played better unspoken.

MiniJB,

My dad knew a guy who had a yellow De Lorean. There is a special and expensive pain-in-the-ass process you have to go through to treat the stainless steel so that you can paint it. So if you ever see someone driving a DMC in any color than bare brushed stainless, you know they are an exceptionally pompous ass.
