    Smile comic books question #16

    In the sentence below, what does "cannon-slinging" mean?

    There' a madman on the loose, Superman. A cannon-slinging lunatic who calls himself Bloodsports.

    "Bloodsport"

    He goes around carrying a cannon rather as cowboys went around wearing revolvers in a holster slung from a belt. They were "gun-slinging", so he is "cannon-slinging".
