Things That Made Me Happy

... in my comics this week.

  • The Riddler drinks martinis.
  • Blue Beetle versus the Flash!
  • The Ironic Comeuppance of China White. Now, that, folks, is comics.
  • Oh my god, the Third Kryptonian is ... my mom.
  • Two-Face in two different comic books.
  • Superman vision? Cool. Crazy, but cool.
  • Jay Garrick, who, upon being transported from his girlfriend's front porch to an alien dimension says, "Where the hey am I?"
  • Alfred with a broken bottle.
  • Superman-Prime disarming an opponent.
  • Freddie E. Willaims' art in Robin. Great stuff.
  • Robin's angry dog.
  • You know, if they'd bothered to take Obsidian with them, they could have kept the kid in shadow... .
  • Peacemaker versus the Sinestro Corps.
  • Tobias freakin' Whale.
  • Kristen Wells? Heh; nice one, Kurt.
  • Hey, Flash-- would been nice to have had the real Aquaman to deal with those monsters, huh?
  • The shoulders of Black Condor. Sigh.
  • Tell the truth; you wonder what the Anti-Monitor looks like naked, don't you?
  • The Bat-Treehouse.
  • New Themyscira, Planet of the Babes.
  • So ... that's who Superwoman of Earth 3 married.
  • Jason Todd would never have been able to take out the real Aquaman.
  • The Bizarro Green Lantern is in the Sinestro Corps...?!
  • Stormy's intervention.
  • Thank god someone took the care not to write the Penguin as a boor.
  • Nadia, at a loss.
  • Pa Kent running around the farm in a homemade Superman costume.
  • Peacemaker's homemade backscratcher.
  • The Guardians' Greatest Weapon is darned impressive. They can unleash him on me any day.
  • Maybe to Young Clark, all his victims are "just comic book characters"...? I like seeing things from his perspective.

There were indeed many many things to be happy about this week. As you say, too bad about leaving Obsidian home. I guess he's not allowed outside anymore.

Jay Garrick is adorable.

China White absolutely deserved her comeuppance. I just hope that Superbrat Prime gets one as perfect.

Yes, Sodam Yat, the new Ion is quite the hunk. Did you see him last month prancing around in a mostly ripped costume? Rowrr!

Peacemaker is awesome. I really hope he's still around...it was a little bit iffy there at the end.

I was very disappointed Ion repaired his costume before going in to fight the half-naked Superbrat Prime.

*Very* disappointed.

However, I have never wondered what the Anti-Monitor looks like naked, so at least my mind is cleaner than yours, mister.

Tell the truth; you wonder what the Anti-Monitor looks like naked, don't you?

...Well, now I do.

"The Bizarro Green Lantern is in the Sinestro Corps...?!"

I loved that! I can't imagine what Sinestro or the rest would make of that guy, but what a nice, weird tie-in!

"Maybe to Young Clark, all his victims are "just comic book characters"...? I like seeing things from his perspective."

I think that's really it! There's a lack of empathy in both directions, because of the characters' different perspectives. From Superboy Prime's perspective, they're all just comic book characters... and badly written ones, to boot! For him it probably doesn't feel all that different from doing "bad" stuff in a video game... not like anyone's *really* getting hurt!

But of course the heroes don't see our Earth-Prime as being any more or less real than theirs, which makes Superboy Prime monstrously evil in their eyes. I actually felt for the guy a little in this special - he might be redeemable, even... but most likely not by leaving him locked up in a red-sun prison 24/7 to stew in his own crazy....

Pa Kent running around THE bedroom in a homemade Superman costume, revealing Ma Kent's darkest sexual fantasies...

Oh, and Blue Beetle totally pwned Evil Flash From The Future.
