Justice League Unofficial Rules of Order: Alcohol

#31: Unless you are Kryptonian, Wonder Woman, the Flash, or Icon, do not drink from the shelf in the liquor cabinet labeled “danger.” That is not alcohol. The aforementioned people can only get drunk from neurotoxins. You will die.

#12: Captain Marvel may technically be an adult, but Billy is not allowed in the liquor cabinet in either form.

#46: Do not drink Bruce’s port. He will find creative ways to get revenge.

#374: Do not drink anything Aquaman offers you. He has terrible taste.

#463: If you value your sanity, DO NOT, under any circumstances, ask Tim Drake what he puts in his coffee.

happy birthday, billie holiday // april 7, 1915 - july 17, 1959 // “there’s no damn business like show business - you have to smile to keep from throwing up”

“Behind me, Billie was on her last song. I picked up the refrain, humming a few bars. Her voice sounded different to me now. Beneath the layers of hurt, beneath the ragged laughter, I heard a willingness to endure. Endure- and make music that wasn’t there before.“ President Barack Obama

“Once, when [I was] playing at the Apollo, [Billie] was working a block away at the Harlem Opera House. Some of us went over between shows to catch her, and afterward, we went backstage. I did something then, and I still don’t know if it was the right thing to do - I asked her for her autograph.”  Ella Fitzgerald 

“With few exceptions, every major pop singer in the US during her generation has been touched in some way by her genius. It is Billie Holiday who was, and still remains, the greatest single musical influence on me. Lady Day is unquestionably the most important influence on American popular singing." Frank Sinatra

"If I hear a record once, I usually never listen to it again. I rarely listen to music - unless it’s Billie Holiday." Barbra Streisand

“She could express more emotion in one chorus than most actresses can in three acts.” Jeanne Moreau

"I have the ability to sing with emotion and feeling, but if you say I sound like Billie Holiday, that’s cool. Let’s look at who Billie was: she was this person, this singer, this beautiful diva who could move the audience with the slightest gesture of her hand." Erykah Badu

"Billie Holiday….she is so subtle, she can milk you with two notes. She can go no farther than from a to b, and she can make you feel like she told you the whole universe." Janis Joplin

"My great hero is Billie Holiday." Tim Curry

Justice League Nerds

JLA members occasionally hear Diana and Arthur having loud angry fights with each other in Ancient Greek. Even Bruce avoids them when they’re doing this, as everyone thinks that they’re having some fight about moral codes or politics or something.

The first time that they had one of their fights while Billy was on the Watchtower, he cracked up and informed the rest of the League that they were arguing over whether Zeus or Poseidon would win in a fight.

You wanna know what sucks even more about the CW’s mishandling of Vixen’s TV Movie, and not promoting it at all? 

It’s the fact that this isn’t the first time Vixen has been screwed over by mismanagement. According to Wikipedia, Vixen was supposed to be DC’s first African Woman to headline her own comic. But due to outside forces and DC comics Implosion (which apparently was a time when DC cancelled plenty of comic books) it never saw fruition. 

And now, DC and Warner Brothers had the perfect opportunity to rectify past mistakes by giving Vixen a big push into the mainstream with her cartoon. And even still, she could have been a perfect answer to Marvel’s Storm (who, let’s face it, hasn’t been getting any kind of respect over at Marvel because they don’t own the movie rights to the Mutants) 

Vixen is not only an interesting character but she breaks a lot of stereotypes about Black women. She’s strong without needing to sacrifice her femininity. Her power set is versatile and unique, and opens up a lot of future stories for African lore.

There really isn’t an excuse as for why she can’t be on the Justice League proper.

1. Her powers don’t clash with anyone else’s, and she’d add another woman to the team.

2. She actually fits the Justice League=Greek Gods motiff perfectly. If memory serves, Artemis was the goddess of animals, right? 

3. Don’t fucking tell me we can’t have more than 7 people on the JL because that’s bullshit. During Justice League: Throne of Atlantis we had fucking 8 members (and I still think its ridiculous that they tried to shove Shazam onto the roster.  

A successful Vixen TV movie could have lead into something more, and would have been a perfect companion to the upcoming Black Lightning series. 

But now we’re gonna have to wait who know’s how long for Vixen to get an opportunity again. 

Meanwhile, Aquaman got how many fucking chances to build an audience?  

anonymous asked:

Plot twist. Every earthling super hero can trace their lineage to Ra's. Everybody is related. Ra's helped birthed the majority of the superhero community. He literally fathered his own worst enemies. Reap what you sow (plus side Damian is happy to be related to Grayson. Downside he's related to Drake. There is always a negative).

I mean, what else do you expect to happen when you have an immortal traveler that likes to hook up with every woman he meets?

hewwoweeny  asked:

give me Jewish hc of the entire justice League ( well the main 6 anyway djajahhd )

  • if you don’t think barry impresses everyone by singing chad gadya at superspeed you’re wrong and a fool (and yes he’s teaching wally because mary west? jewish. (rudolph’s a goy))
  • hal absolutely gets drunk on manischewitz. nobody knows how. but he’s drunk on it and singing 
    • he keeps looking at barry and grinning really wide because he loves him 
    • he drunkenly flirts with iris and barry and cries when they tell him they’re all dating
  • ted wears these dumb Chanukah glasses even on the holidays that aren’t Chanukah. somehow while they’re kissing booster ends up with them.
  • clark’s a good jewish boy with good jewish parents so the kents host a seder for the whole entire justice league every other year (not every year, they can’t afford that)
  • diana’s not really jewish but she comes to the seders anyways and is genuinely thinking about converting because she loves the values of judaism.
  • batfamily holidays are absolutely wild. seriously. especially on Chanukah-you should see bruce’s kids fight over who gets to light the candles. it’s incredible. and of course alfred makes the best matzo ball soup around.
  • vic is a sweetheart so he always gets gar really heartfelt Chanukah gifts before kicking his ass at dreidel (he’s the best there is-the whole league plays and vic wins every time and nobody can figure out how because he’s definitely not cheating so…)
  • billy holds the concept of mitzvahs and tzedakah very very close to his heart and believes in them very strongly and does his very best. 
    • clark came to his bar mitzvah and cried because he loves billy so much and he’s so proud of him.
  • atlantis has several major religions and judaism is one of them which arthur was super happy about since he was raised jewish.
    • yes there are waterproof torahs. don’t question it.
  • barry always feels bad that he can’t fast for yom kippur because if he doesn’t eat every day then he’ll literally die but the league cheers him up and tells him that hashem doesn’t want him to put his life or his health in danger to fast
  • not entirely justice league related but shadowpact has at least two jews on it so?? i mean???? They’re All Jewish Now and they have seders.
    • bruce: kate you wanna come over for passover this year
      kate, looking at her shitty friends cheering for basil as he shapeshifts to reenact the story of the maccabees: nah i’m good
  • they’re ALL SO GOOD and SO FUCKING JEWISH.

“Alright, now Noora’s problem is solved we can move on to Yousef”  can we, Billy? Can we, ever?
