Snapper is Clueless.

Please note that the below panel includes a term that could be considered offensive in this day and age

The Justice League has a rare laid back moment…

“Hey, I’m sure there are no crimes to fight… let’s help Snapper do his homework.”

Seriously?

And to show just how clueless about Brotherhood Snapper is…

Gee Snapper, I dunno… maybe because it’s 1967 and he isn’t a W.A.S.P. like you?

So the team decides to go out and help Joel (plus two others). So who gets Snapper?

Sorry about that short straw there, Katar.

    I'm not sure how many people find “Negro” offensive these days. I still hear the term a lot, and I haven't heard a lot of outrage over it. I think calling the Apache “Jerry Nimo” is far worse. Partly because it's a horrible, horrible pun.

    Anyway! Clearly, it's a slow day in the superheroing business. When Snapper Carr is allowed to be the center of attention, you know boredom has sunk to a new low.

    And Harvey Young may be the worst, depending on whether he's a volunteer working in India or an actual Indian. If it's the latter, way to get an authentic Indian name, guys.

    At least Snapper's not talking in jive. Thank God for small favors.

    Oh good, watching Snapper do his homework. Maybe later we can watch Diana file her nails and Bruce do push-ups.

    It was around this time that “Snapper” Carr became “Fatso” Carr.

    And being overweight myself I can use the word 'Fatso'.

    Wait, no-one commented on the obvious sexual innuendo in the first two panels? Could Hawkman and Flash look any more femine/gay? And the way Green Arrow lures over Snapper? Boy, I didn't even mention the way Bats, Supes and WW leave.

    We all know what Flash is thinking when Hawkman asks how GA wants to help snapper.

    Jerry is obviously the interracial child of Captain Nemo! Or not, you know.

    And why did nobody tell me this site was back in business? I had to redo my RSS feed list when I found out myself a few days ago. I'm now happy person.

    If there was a comic book starring Captain Nemo's half-Apache son, I would totally buy it.

    What on Earth is up with Green Arrow in that last panel? He looks sixty years old!
