On a scale of Loki to Superman how well do you handle being adopted.
I obsess over little things.
On a scale of Loki to Superman how well do you handle being adopted.
We didn’t reset the counter on this one, but seriously?
The behind-the-scenes footage from the Man of Steel bluray is going to matter so much more than the movie itself, you guys.
One of the things I liked about Amy in this role is that she sort of….played on societal expectations about a woman in this kind of situation. It’s clear that Lois (as per usual) has been a huge pest to these guys bc they tried to get an Injunction to get her off their backs. So, we know even before the narrative started that she was essentially being a huge pain in their ass.
But then they meet her and for a split second, they see that sweet face (bc Amy does have that notoriously pretty and kind Princess face) and every societal expectation and you almost see them start to back down or dismiss her. She doesn’t “look” scary (and let’s face it—-how many women actually do with their physical size/appearance) so they can probably relax. Right? Wrong.
Lois knows exactly what they see when they look at her. But she diffuses the situation immediately.
And…it totally works. This is a totally valid, fresh interpretation of Lois Lane. Don’t get me wrong, I equally love other interpretations where she’s more obviously aggressive at first glance. But I also think this is valid and different while still maintaining the core of the character which is that she doesn’t like to be screwed with and ultimately, will never stop once she’s on to something. She will be a pain in your ass until the end. Ultimately, this is Lois defying the expectations two guys had of her. They assumed, when they saw her, that they didn’t actually have to be scared of her.
They underestimated her. I like it.

Also he’s turned Gotham into an arena for playing out his own twisted little psychodrama, avenging his parents’ death over and over again, which is why he doesn’t just fucking kill the recurring villains and spare everybody the danger of their continual reappearances.
He’s a big rich man and he doesn’t want to deal with his feelings in any kind of healthy way, so an entire city is vulnerable to terrorist attack on a more or less daily basis for the sake of his sad, creepy power games.
You’re all making very valid socio-economic points
I like Batman anyway
This is the kind of bullshit spewed by dummies who never read Batman comics and never watched Batman: The Animated Series and have never met me.
BASICALLY YOU GUYS ARE ALL STUPID AND DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT BATMAN.
First off, Batman fights those would would endanger others. That’s it. The majority of Batman’s villains have amassed criminal fortunes at the cost of innocent lives. Batman doesn’t give a damn about property or social status or even his own inherited wealth (except that it can be used to prevent tragedies like the one that defined his life), he only cares about saving lives. Preventing crime. Capturing criminals.
On top of that, dude is all the time giving criminals second chances. He gets ex-cons and even ex-Arkham patients(!) jobs at his own damn company, geniuses! Yeah, he’s such a Republican. Dude helps fund the police crime lab, manages outreach programs and scholarships, donates to every freaking charity in the city, and STILL spends all his time and money saving your hatin’ ass, because THAT’S WHO HE IS.
Please tell me Bruce Wayne isn’t for higher taxes for after school programs, public housing, and healthcare, all of which reduce crime, because I like arguing with people who don’t know shit. If Batman cared about his money, he’d be running Wayne Enterprises instead of letting his pal Lucius do that stuff. And he sure as heck wouldn’t be funding Batman, Inc. all over the world if it was just about getting his kicks punching poor criminals in the face.
Batman poured his bleeding heart out on the floor before congress to get federal assistance when Gotham needed it.
Batman FREQUENTLY adopts orphans whose parents he couldn’t save or who generally just need his help. (Robinhood is like the Big Brother program, but replace Big with Bat.)
Batman is hardcore BFFs with the biggest liberal softy in the DCU, Superman, whom he respects, both for his work as a superhero AND a member of the fourth estate.
Batman fights rich criminals all the damn time, son. And you know what? If you hench for a homicidal maniac, sometimes you get batarang’d and them’s the breaks. You don’t get to hurt people and get away with it in Gotham City. Not anymore.
Batman doesn’t kill. Batman doesn’t use guns. Batman wants the mentally ill to get help, not be sent to prison. Is it working out great? NOT REALLY, BECAUSE WE ALL WANT MORE ROGUES GALLERY STORIES. Blame the fans for the failure of Arkham, not Batman. Dude’s doing his level best, and it’s a damn sight better than any of you are doing.
But if you’re having trouble getting your head around there being ONE GOOD RICH GUY (and he’s fictional), let me break it down for you:
LEX LUTHOR IS A CONSERVATIVE.
BATMAN IS A LIBERAL.
Dean Trippe drops the damn mic.
And this is the moment I fell in love this Dean Trippe.
Reblogging because I heard this argument again. Guys. I have strong opinions about Batman. For reasons.
"You fill the uniform well, Dick. Bruce Would be proud of you. I know I am."
Internally, Dick is squealing with delight.

A League of One: Wonder Woman Takes Down the Justice League
Part III: Wonder Woman vs. Superman
Writer/Artist: Christopher Moeller
A recap: Wonder Woman is taking down the members of the Justice League so that she can fight a dragon alone, because a prophecy foretold that whoever fought the dragon would beat her - but also die. So being selfless, Diana gets her team members out of the way so that she will be the only one to die. It pains her to put them in danger and betray their trust, but she strongly believes that the world is better off without her, rather than without the rest of the League. She loves her team - her family - that much. Enough that she sucker-punched Superman.
Also, I believe Diana and Superman are equal in combat ability when their powers are included. Although the scans above say that Diana doesn’t think she can beat Superman in combat, I think it’s more apt to say that she can’t beat him and then have the strength left over to fight the dragon. Honestly, a Wonder Woman/Superman fight would last a long time.
I’ll also post the battle between Wondy and the dragon, because it’s a really good one, too.
As I first reported Faora the bad ass villain from Man of Steel reappears in comics soon in both Action Comics Annual #2 and Superman and his Wonder Girl Friend.
The return of Faora was first seen in pencils by Tony Daniel for the cover for the latter book. You can see she has tall black boots and seems to be well proportioned. The top of her suit is similar to that in the movie focusing on hardware rather than boobage.
Below is the version appearing in the Action Comics Annual #2 with pencils Kenneth Rocafort. The boots are gone and we know have a smaller, waist. Her top has been redesigned as well enabling the proper comic presentation of her boobs.
Booth is joined on the issue by Scott Lobdell.
Let’s hope this female warrior from another planet doesn’t recreate their famous panel of another female warrior from another planet.
though don’t you mean Rocafort? I
praydon’t think Booth is involved in this.
Roboworks I’m feeling a bit depressed today. There’s a lot going on in my life that’s out of my control, but I have to remember that even the mightiest among us have to overcome these things that define our human condition and we must rise above it.
Oh, this is heartbreaking. Clark is one of my favorite characters of all time, and often people seem to forget that his heart is as powerful as the rest of him. This really makes it clear. The mix of god-like power and absolute *passion* — however focused on grief — is phenomenal. Thank you!
I think that’s what I like about it the most. He’s a very sympathetic character, there’s plenty in his life to feel sorry about, but he understands that there are greater problems than his own.
Go home, Superman, you’re drunk.
There’s something strangely adorable about a fat, post-middleaged Mark running a bar with a framed photo of his glory days in the background
and he’s still wearing his damn costume theme
