Howard the Duck Defiled Again

In the latest South Park George Lucas and Steven Spielberg are depicted raping Indiana Jones in recreations of famous movie rape scenes. In the scene based on The Accused, the pinball machine which Lucas rapes Indy is from Howard the Duck the Film. I was a big Howard the Duck fan. I love the cleverness and wit of the original comic by Steve Gerber. Unfortunately as he lost control of Howard the Duck, Marvel claimed he was merely performed work for hire, Howard the Duck was in a death spiral. George Lucas' abuse was enough destroy Howard. Marvel has recently brought back Howard as some halfhearted zombie version of the original comic.
