Batman is the Caped Crusader, Dark Knight, or one half of the Dynamic Duo. Superman is the Man of Steel, Man of Tomorrow, or Last son of Krypton. Wonder Woman is the Avenging Amazon (which is odd, because I never got the impression she was avenging anything… but I digress)\ Green Lantern is most commonly […]
Poor, poor Johnny. That’s a long wait you’re gonna have there, son. Hey, don’t look at me! Talk to Greg Rucka!
I’m sorry, but this just looks wrong. BAD TOUCH!
The following subtext is brought to you by Jason Todd’s envy of Batman spending time with Catwoman instead of him: Robin’s jealousy would come out as not so odd, if it weren’t for Batman’s behavior. Batman can’t just talk to Jason, oh no. Instead he steals bits of the boy’s clothing to lure him down […]
Commissioner Gordon implies something This may be the first example I’ve found of a Batman character suggesting there’s something untoward about the dynamic.
Batman/Robin slash is done to death. Check this out: “I’m dirty Alfred! Dirty! Punish me and tell me what a bad little boy I’ve been!”
Dick, are you going to sit there and take that abuse? Okay, so Dick actually would take that abuse. Is there anyone in Gotham who doesn’t think they’re a couple? Also… I’m guessing those are “real dolls”, seeing how they’re jsut like hookers.
You can’t tell me this wasn’t deliberate. Yes Dick, tell us, does Bruce enjoy “musical theater”? How about you, little boy? Hey Dick, do you like movies about gladiators?
“Bruce? Why are you taking your clothes off in my bedroom? Why are you giving me that look?” Go to your Happy Place, Dick.
This is one that can’t be chalked up to a “lingual shift”, as it is from this decade. When did “have your way with me” imply anything other than impending attempted rape?
Naw, there’s nothing squicky about an underage boy talking about buying a blow-up doll. It’s perfectly normal!
Don’t get too excited – This is tame by today’s standards? So Kory (and presumably Dick?) are hot-tubbing naked while hanging out with their friends? and all of the sudden Dick gets shy about her body? Now that I think about it, this also counts as another example of his being possessive (and there are […]
Lingual Shift Alert. Slang has ruined me. Seriously, if you heard someone talking about another man “squatting on his moneymaker”, what would you think? Where No Man Has Gone Before. Namely, the woman’s washroom. I love the woman in the first panel. Two lunatics in costumes knock the door straight off the hinges and her […]
Ollie has a long history of two-timing. No, not just since Winnik, or even Grell. It goes back even further. He’s such a slut. One also has to love how dumb Roy is. “What is he hiding from me?” Um? you just saw, Roy? Wow Roy, you really are slow. “Something said… not good.” Of […]
Forget her recently retconned roll in the hay with of a certain sanity-challenged supervillain. The below is in continuity proof that Gwen was a bit of a tease: “Hey baby, wanna go see some softcore?” For the time, “Curious Yellow” was very controversial. Plus, this was in a Code Approved book, before the standards had […]
The Titans have dirty mouths. All this talk of “love arrows” being in “quivers” made me check for the comic code seal.
Beast Boy is very upset. He’s off to show Larry that he’s as good a D.P.er as the next guy. How? Okay, yeah, I’m trying to think of anything freakier than D.P.ing your foster mom. It’s a short list.
Watch the bad guy’s left hand.. “Oh. Oh my. No-one’s ever done that to me in battle before.”
The early WW issues have these neat features about famous women. In the one about the founder of the Girl Scouts, an out of vogue term is used. Anyone else ever read Pratchett & Gaiman’s Good Omens?
I don’t care if I get a rep as a “Feminized Male” for this post, I need to get something off of my chest. First, go here. I won’t have the image display here because, frankly, I believe it to be offensive (some may consider Not Safe for Work). I may have found the MJ […]
People, myself included, have been a bit upset about some recent depictions of rape in comic books (to say the least). Using rape as a story element smacks of sensationalism, most likely because it generally is. You know what’s still fairly rare though? Male protagonists who get raped by female antagonists. I can think of […]
Lorelei, sluttier little sister of the Enchantress (yes, it is possible), plans to seduce ThorÂ… HmmmÂ… no, no subtext here folks. Move along, nothing to seeÂ… Being broke really, really sucks. Thanks to everyone who sent donations. Payday cannot come fast enough.
Here’s an awesome motto, right here: “My hammer swings only for justice” needs to be on a T Shirt. Also, amazing how little editing this dialog needs to be transformed into a scene from an adult filmâ€¦
Hello, sailor! Okay, so the rest of the thought balloon is “’cause he was always a big tipper!”, but really, for a second there I was a bit taken aback. Going to be offline next Monday-Wednesday for Pessach (Passover to the Gentiles in the room). Sir James MacQuarrie will be my proxy poster during that […]
