Now it’s been emphasized again in ch125 that the S4 were just trying to make people happy with their performances, and that Blavat was just using them… just like Fassad was using Salsa to deliver Happy Boxes to the people of Tazmily Village (and New Pork City).
For the other three S4′s, it was simply about making the audience “smile”:
For Violet, however, it’s more personal than that. He wanted to make the other S4 smile and be happy again….
Blue Beetle making Star Trek references. More to be added as I find them. I’m currently 45 issues deep in Justice League International, though, so it might take some time for me to go back through them and check for the geeky jokes.
Also, I completely forgot about the reference he makes in Convergence (thanks for reminding me, babemagi)! I need to figure out where my copy of that issue is (probably buried under my 45 retro comic books) so I can add it to the post.
EDIT: Babemagi was rad and found some more! See her post here.
Also, someone remind me to grab the issue numbers for my first couple of pictures. I think the first two are from the same issue but I’m not 100% sure.
Also also, macgyvertape is gonna try to look for/scan some more, so keep an eye out for links(?) to that! Gosh you are all so awesome.
Torchwood: outside the government, beyond the police. Tracking down alien life on Earth, arming the human race against the future. The twenty-first century is when everything changes. And you’ve got to be ready.
