Oh yeah I forgot about superdickery.

Speaking of which, this person does some fun parodies of classic-era style comics. My favorite is this one:

Disney bought Fox's film and entertainment division, which means X-Men and Fantastic Four are back with Marvel Studios. It's a pretty big merger and it has a lot more consequences than just Marvel films, so I've got some mixed feelings. Disney is getting pretty huge.

Member when, in Return of the Joker, there were two Jokerz girls who were apparently Harley Quinn's grand-daughters? And everyone thought they were Joker's grand-daughters, leading to shipper overdrive? "Jo-Quin CONFIRMED?!!! XFD ^O^"

(note: this did not happen)

Weeeell it turns out

Spoiler: show
They're Dick Grayson's.


So that was a thing, coming on the heels of A Killing Joke. Not a thing I care for.

Amourshipping is so much more accessible.

I honestly cried a bit when I found out Harley used Joker toxin to subdue Nightwing specifically because it reminded me of RotJ. "Consenting" or no, the implications are just too icky.


At least it appears to take place in a separate universe than the official DCAU canon. So there's that.

Doomsday Clock - the current era in DC comic books - is attempting to retcon Watchman's ending and combine it with the DC universe.

To not speak of there technical attempt to do this is a disservice the original (the premise being, Ozzy is trying to save the world from himself...), it speaks to two truisms:

1. That DC, out of either greed or desperation, is willing to incorporate whatever IP it can into its universe to drive sales
2. Fanboys are infested with Ouborous faecalis - a parasitic centipede species that connects a mammal's own mouth and anus, creating a closed loop. Defecation contractions pipe excrement up and back down into the esophagus. The stomach finds it's a familiar if disgusting meal, but better that than swallow the progressivism dominating Marvel comics, hmm?

Ultimately, I think #2 is more offensive than #1. Greed and desperation are two of the most empathic of human emotions that you don't have to experience. But I have a strong prejudice against escapism, which seems to be the driving force in the "critical acclaim" or what can only be poorly written fanfiction, cause Alan Moore has no part of this.
