Meteorology in Apex City

"Good morning! I'm meteorologist Misty Hazen, with the seven-day forecast here in the Apex area, home of the Martian Manhunter. Which is located in southern Florida, you know.

"Today, expect meteors, particularly in the center of town.

"Tuesday, no change, with continuing meteors.

"Wednesday, the meteors should turn to falling missiles from space,

with possible gusts of flying saucers.

"Thursday, things should be clear most of the day, but plan for a possible whump of flaming meteor from space in the late afternoon.

"Friday looks to bring falling bombs...

but that'll be mostly off the coast,
turning late in the day...

" meteors again.

"Saturday will be lovely and warm, so you can get some great sun, with only scattered floating objects.

"Sunday, the weather will return to normal, so be prepared for...

a whump of meteors.

"This is Misty Hazen, saying,
'Look to the skies! Keep watching the skies!' "

Dude. It is just like Pensacola! Before the Martian Manhunter, they had Braxton Bragg. Before that, Andrew Jackson.

A meteorologist named Misty Hazen. That's the best charactonym since a war correspondent named Wolf Blitzer.

Man, I thought that living in Smallville was bad, with their daily shower of meteors, but this is ridiculous!

I wouldn't want to sell insurance in Apex, Fla!

Didn't Hal Jordan have that job once?

Looks like Stripesy worked as a sailor after WWII.

Pretty funny how J'onn is all "You're in no danger, folks, while I'm on the job!" while the art depicts the plummeting meteor about 2 inches from his emerald noggin. Maybe he's using his Martian telekinesis to slow it down or something.

Haw! Another fine Scipio concept that should be adopted by the "canon" DCU, along with the mind-bending vastness of Central City. (Really, more DCU cities should have preternatural qualities. I mean, why shouldn't Metropolis be surrounded by a flat, featureless plain, Wayne Boring-style?)

Thanks, BB. But it's not just meteors; in Apex City, everything is either aflame or falling/flying. Planks. Bollides. Safes. Bombs. Missiles. Cars. Trucks. Houses. Entire buildings. Neighborhoods even. ISLANDS.

The place is insane!

Why couldn't all these things fall on Central City, where there's so much more room?

I was thinking along the same lines that Sally: Smallville is childs play compared to this. Of course, luckily for J'onn there is no Lana here.

( verification word: xxrzgcw. CW? Smallville? can you say "spinoff"? This fall, the CW brings you....APEX! Somebody saaaaaaave meeeeeee....)
