Minnie is a slut.
Mortimer has very disturbing/poor posture.

Even his car is a jerk.
Also, I don't think I've ever seen Mickey so resentful.
Back in the day, when Mickey was allowed to get mad. And get even.
Yeah, he's an unrelatable, unfunny, over-merchandised, malignant cancer on the realm of American creative history.
And Mortimer's a jerk, too.
Didn't Outland have a Mortimer Mouse character designed specifically to not be property of the Disney corporation? Either it was an elaborate joke or they didn't know about this guy.
Also, I thought Mickey was gonna sock Minnie at the last second. He was definitely giving her the stink eye.
Outland Mortimer is the basis for one of the coolest stories in recent comic strip history.
Mort was created as a spoof of creatively bankrupt pop culture icons. When Disney threatened to sue, Breathed retaliated with a storyline telling us Mort's origins as Mickey's older brother and stunt double, who was wounded fighting in World War II and returned home only to be blacklisted as a commie and thrown out unto the street by an ungrateful Walt.
Disney then sent Breathed a letter from their legal department. He responded with a three-week story wherein Bill the Cat is kidnapped by a mysterious villain who turns out to be Michael Eisner. The gang storms the Magic Kingdom and many severely copyrighted Disney characters make appearances.
After that, Disney gave up. Outland was awesome.
That was a truly amazing experience. I saw a Disney video on YouTube.
If Mortimer were a real person, I imagine I'd have an urge to punch him rising right about now.
