Darkseid, on Confidence

As we've said before, of all the villainous virtues, the greatest is Confidence...

"My thinking is flawless, Stranger! My planning impeccable!"
Darkseid, "Send for...the Suicide Squad!"

He's split off from the real universe, living in a bleak cul-de-sac on the other side of the dimensional tracks. His every follower is a spineless lickspittle whose collective spunk and ability for independent thought is less than that a Daily Planet cub reporter or an enfeebled British manservant. He wears fishing boots, a mini-skirt, and a crash helmet.

And, despite a fantastic press machine, he has...never...done...anything.

BUT. His thinking is flawless, his planning impeccable. So watch out.

I just wanted to say I love your site. I was a long time Marvel fan who didn't get into much DC till the late 90's. Now I have a ton of DC books and find myself buying more DC than Marvel. I loved your explanation of the differences in the two universes. It captures their feel perfectly.

I want to do more examples of the difference between DC and Marvel, so I'm glad to know you liked that.
