Wait, I thought Power Girl's weakness was wood?

Well, the good news is that the worst thing to happen to the JSA is no longer Mike Carlin ordering their series canceled and for them all to be killed off because they were "too old".

Didio and Johns: Just when you think they've hit rock bottom, they tunnel even further.

Everyone on Earth 2 is going to be younger so Jade, Obsidian, and anyone else most likely have kids or even be married.

Most likely won't have kids or even be married.

Because you can't come out after having kids?

So they had a guy whose name was Oliver Queen, who wore a robin hood costume with a feather in his cap, and he's NOT the gay one?
 
2012-05-29 11:40:33 AM
Why not just go with the obvious choice, Robin?
 
2012-05-29 11:41:22 AM
So, Obsidian is gay, how come no one ever talks about that.

Granted, Obsidian kind of sucks as a character anyways. But still.

I thought the deal with superheroes is they never get to fark anyone, male or female. They don't even get to masturbate.

Many of them are married or have kids. The 'thing' with DC super heros is they are not allowed to kill, unless it's some sort fo uber monster or something, and then that's rare.

There was a big deal when the Green Lantern corps got the, ah, green light to use lethal force during the Sinestro Corps war. Likewise, when Wonder Woman killed that guy to end his zombie attack.

You mean Maxwell Lord? She only killed him so that he couldn't get Superman under his control again.The zombie thing was an entirely different story.

Eh, I knew he was controlling someone, zombie like. Wasn't referring to the blackest night events.

The only thing I've seen mentioned about JSA characters is from the Earth 2 relaunch about a month ago. So that Silver Age Green Lantern is going to be gay?

I mean, Black Lightning's daughter is gay and Grace from the Outsiders is gay, so what's the big shock value of this?

He's an old guy who dresses in red and green with a big collar on a cape and it's a shock that he's gay?

Well, the character perhaps. The actor behind the mask there is an absolute scoundrel with the ladies, if his autobiography is to be believed. And if it's all fake then he was at least thinking about it a lot.

Burt Ward was also reportedly hung like a stallion. So much so that in the TV special "Return to the Batcave" he talks about how his dong was so large they had to keep changing the crotch-area of his costume to keep the show from being obscene, and they eventually settled on taking pills to shrink his penis.

He was concerned about it going back to normal size. I would be too.

So, haven't been reading for a while. What about his wife? Or did she disappear during the relaunch?

Never mind that. Where does Supes drop a deuce? Most toilets are going to shatter down to the bedrock when assaulted with a Kryptonian grogan, and the sonic boom won't help, either.

Most likely disappeared much like Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown, etc.

All that political maneuvering to detach homosexuality from pedophilia is a waste of time if you're going to keep trying to put the issue directly in children's faces. All you're doing is giving the X-tians more ammo and the smug, self-serving rationalization to use it.
 
2012-05-29 12:11:45 PM
I'm only surprised because I thought they had forgotten him.

Still pandering, still pointless, and still NOT an "iconic" character. He's the old, forgotten great-grandpa green lantern who is put on a bus or killed as necessary. I mean, there have been arcs where good writers made good use of him, but this is the same as the gratuitous lesbians Montoya (lol female cops r' lesbians) and Batwoman.

I mean, really, a man whose weakness is wood and who dresses in the even-more over-the-top giant cape and has "flaming" powers?

Maybe he just flies into space and fires one in the opposite direction of earth.

Comics aren't just for kids, and most pedo's identify as heterosexual.

He just uses a toilet.

He's already mastered holding back his super-strength so that Clark Kent doesn't destroy doors, drinking glasses, eating utensils, etc. in day to day life.

Shoot, the Hulk takes a crap in a toilet just like you and me, and he's not nearly as disciplined as Supes.

And Hulk's crap is the strongest there is.

Last I saw (about 2 years ago) she and Terra were doing the sidekick/best friends/sisterhood thing. While that is easily and often put on the titillation train to tuna town it always ends with at least one eventually abandoning sapphic experimentation in favor of proper penis-worship and the other either ALSO turning away from such things or turning evil as part of the psycho lesbian subtrope.

In the original Golden Age comic story, the Green Lantern got his powers from a mystical green flame. You can make of that what you will.
 
2012-05-29 12:34:06 PM
Or they could, bear with me this is a shocking concept, come up with a great new character who's gay from the get-go.

The comic industry has had compelling storylines based on the troubles of racism, alcoholism, spousal abuse, and more. Why can't they take gay discrimination just as seriously without using one-dimensional disposable characters?

To me, lesbians don't count. It was a ploy to ramp up the bow chika bow factor. Just as obvious as Power Girl's laracroftism.

Tired of the retconning, reboots, and reimaginings.

You KNOW what I mean. So, now they're going to start clamoring for comics to have warning labels, and Walmart will stop carrying them. Next thing you know, they're only available in adult bookstores, and with the porn mags at the newsstands. Then what happens to the genre?
