    Aw man

    apparently the original New 52 pitch for Green Arrow was by an unannounced, but supposedly prominent, writer that cast Ollie as a dude who was fed up with all of the supervillains and bullshit in Star City so he tackles crime the only way he knows how: with a bow and arrow. Presumably he was either a sport archer or kept the shipwrecked story.

    instead we got JT Krul writing Ollie Queen as NOTSteve Jobs, making qPads and qPhones and going up against the "Jersey Shore of supervillains".

    Yes that is an actual quote from the solicit.

    Fuckin' DC.

    I'm not shocked at this point. Waiting for John Constantine to become a 15 year old who finds a wizard school has prevented such emotions

    They also changed up the Speed Force in a way I really like

    basically it is no longer this nebulous thing that powers all Speedsters and is also Speedster Heaven or whatever the fuck it was

    it is basically the realm of time and the timeline of Earth

    Flash is, essentially, its antibody

    It powers him and grants him superspeed and he protects Earth and makes sure everything is going alright

    He also serves as a generator for it, so everytime he runs he keeps the Speed Force going. He's basically a renewable energy source for it.

    Just localized to Earth?

    Its a sad fact that mobsters don't sell as well as supervillians.

    There's a reason the new Batman adventures forgot who Rupert Thorne and Roland Dagget were.

    I would love the mob in Gotham to have an insane resurgence because Arkham keeps the police and Batman so busy.

    the secret is to give the mob as much personality as the more colourful villains

    just because they're sane doesn't mean they have to be boring

    and a sane opponent might be able to challenge batman in ways he's not used to. he's so used to solving riddles and escaping elaborate deathtraps that dealing with mundane corruption might throw him off

    Ha anybody read the comic series Locke and Key?

    My girlfriend bought the first collection and gave it to me when she finished. I liked it alright. The writer does a good thing of depicting the mental state of people who have been through a traumatic event.

    Though I'm not really sure where the story is headed. Though it isn't hard to guess there will be Lovecraftian stuff.

    Yeah, Locke and Key is really good. It is a bit of a slow boil series, overall, but it conistently manages to get crazier and crazier as it goes on. Without ever seeming like it has gone off the rails, either. Just a slow march of fracturing horror.

    It gets so much better. Keep reading. The fifth (out of six) volume just finished up in singles so the hardcover should be out in July or so

    So in the Spider-Man episode of EMH, Drake Bell voices Peter Parker like in USM. He's 17 and looks just like Bagley/Immonen Peter so it makes sense.

    But

    according to Josh Keaton's Twitter, he recorded all of Spidey's lines for EMH, which they then cut out and replaced with Bell's without telling him.

    FUCKING LOEB WHY

    KEATON IS THE BEST SPIDER-MAN

    This is

    Josh Keaton is a rad dude who just loves Spider-Man.

    Yeah.

    That and while Bell isn't bad, Keaton is seriously how I read Spider-Man's voice after Spectacular Spider-Man and MvC.

    He is just perfect at it.

    SpecSpidey is how I picture every Spider-Man character now when I think of them.

    Everyone's all, "Willem Dafoe is the perfect Norman!" and I'm just, "listen."

    Ed Boon hints at Doomsday, Nightwing and Robin in Injustice

    normally I wouldn't buy into it at all since it is just him saying STAY TUNED

    but apparently he did this sort of thing with the MK9 cast and would just outright say no if a character wasn't going to be in and MAAAAYBE to those who were

    Best Hulk
    It looks like the Greendale Human Being from Community got hit by gamma rays.

    Also, Thor looks a bit like meatloaf (but that might be the batwing hat.) I love the hammer

    "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall posess the power of THUR." (Might be a trick of the light, but I still think it's funny.

    Well to be fair, they are somewhat similar characters.

    Both are geniuses and use a psychotic motif with their gadgets and sadistic humor

    Goblin tends to have that effect in many adaptions. Never got that vibe from the comics, though.

    I love it when Joker acts like that, as well
    In the comics he's too much of a horror character for my tastes
