1. "Bat" & "Cat". It's a stupid, childish attempt to Sound Cool.
|Zdarksy. Of course. Who else would think imitating Tom King is a way to sound cool?|
|It's creepy in its relentlessness. Why can't they fixate on circus boys in swimming trunks, like normal Americans?|
|"Uncovered"; oh, it's not naughty ambiguity, it's a genuine exploration of her as feminist anti-hero icon, blah blah blah. At least in the Golden Age when she wore a split-skirt and plunging neckline, they were more honest about it.|
|Who is this FOR?! People who fetishize grown-up circus boys in swimming trunks?|
|Although ever time you DON"T lampshade it, some fool who missed the joke will inevitably start to take it seriously (e.g., Lobo, Sentry, the Extremists, the Watchmen), and, inevitably, that will include not just readers but writers.|
9 & 10. Chip Zdarsky and The League of Overused XXXtreme Batman Tropes.
|"Batman descends on Gotham City, full of rage and force, more driven than ever to save his home. But the new landscape has turned friends into foes. Can anyone stop his reign of terror? Should they? The Gotham War continues in this second chapter!"|
