Cyborg #6 storytime. Nothing in the archive, so here we go.
Many people have pointed out that superhero comics strongly appeal to fascist sensibilities. And even if I think it's true that there are fascist elements in superhero fiction, I think they aren't nearly strong enough.
In my opinion superhero comics would be a lot better if they embraced those themes. I don't mean that they should try to promote a fascist political agenda, but that they should stop trying to hide them behind "everyman" characterization and "down-to-earth" writing. Superheroes are at their best when they do grandiose feats and perform inspiring speeches and throw badass one-liners. Not when they're trying to balance their high-school romance or day job with crimefighting, or when they're quipping at each other and making sexual innuendos.
Sure, the fact that most superheroes have an ordinary human side creates a lot of interesting dynamics and makes them more relatable. But the downside of this ambivalent approach is that many many superhero comics end up as soap operas with fantastical elements. Nothing's really impressive anymore because galactic threats are treated as less important than the character's love affairs and daily hassles.
At the end of the day I don't want to relate to the characters and their issues, I want to witness a spectacular display of power and idealized moral drama. Something superhuman.
The same thing can be said of Pro Wrestling by the way.
I agree, but at the same time Moore seemed very critical of this kind of fiction.
But at least he didn't try to dilute it, he showed us super-heroes in their most inspiring and magnificent state.
Depends on the character. The reason Spider-Man is so popular is because of the "Trying to balance a superhero life with a regular life, and both negatively impacting each other" angle. He'd be a much weaker character without it.
Video released today, what do you guys think?
So what she's saying is...
It's that time of year again folks so spike the eggnog, feed the dog some chocolate, and dampen your socks with our old /co/ family tradition.

Clear trailer for the German spot finally came out:
Also ending sequence rumor from mayimbe:
The closing credits on Batman v Superman will consist of a montage sequence reminiscent of what Zack Snyder did with the opening credits on Watchmen. Unless mayimbe's trolling 4ch, that's another thing that matches up with the anon who called up Bizzaro to Doomsday. First hints of confirmation on that the very nect day, now seemingly the same story woth an ending montage of the League just saving...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You're the same anon that was spewing bullshit that day, and you fed Mayimbe with this info just like you did with comicbookmovie
Just admit it
It's stupid and unnecessary to form the JL at the end of BvS if you have 2 movies to form the team
Hey, kid! I'm a computer!
...is a DUCK?!
Rest in peace, sweet prince.
I don't usually use the term "mean-spirited" but it really does describe what this series has become to a T.
When does the Serenity Thread start? I don't want to miss it.
1. Does anyone read IDW Transformers comics 2. How has transformers of all things managed to become filled with liberal progtard shit like gay robot marriage and 'girl' transformers everywhere?
They are an entire race of of Sexless humanoid robots, that are the same time majorly Masculine, and have always been able to feel strong emotions.
Is the "gay marriage" thing is not a surprise.
1. There are websites that show the sale numbers
2. Girl robots existed since 1985. Pseudo-gay stuff (they are all genderless, despite their masculine or feminine looks, which makes all relationships purely emotional, not sexual) touches maybe 10 out of over 500 characters.
>A girl from our universe is trapped in the Marvel Universe, so to avoid dying, she deliberately designs herself to be as popular as possible by ripping off the two hottest characters right now
This is Fucking brilliant
What specials are you guys watching?
I watched this episode and it has not aged well. I don't mean the writing itself, but the animation isn't very fluid and there are times when you can see static(?) at the bottom of the screen, as if the episode was ripped from a standard VHS. And this is the digital release verison.
