Uncle: I think when and if I get married, I’m going to use this as the art on my invitations. That’ll make the family glad.
Anyway, why don’t you start us off by telling us why you chose this issue?
@traincat: There are two things that can get me to read any comic, and that’s Johnny Storm and weddings, so in theory this should be my favorite issue. It’s not, but in theory. One of my favorite things about long running superhero comics is how malleable canon get. Nothing is sacred! You write Johnny Storm marrying Ben’s true love and 57 issues later, Tom DeFalco’s saying this Alicia is actually a shapeshifting alien spy from outer space after one issue of foreshadowing! Anything’s possible! It’s the kind of storytelling you can’t really accomplish with a lot of other mediums. I love that sense that anything can happen, as long as it’s for the drama.
That being said, Ben and the Puppet Master are both big moods here.
i’m a young jewish woman, and i deserve to be treated with basic fucking decency. i should be able to relax and enjoy my holiday, say shanah tovah and not have to deal with goyische bullshit.
for those of you who haven’t heard, this years cw superhero supercrossover fuckdome is entitled “crisis on earth x”. earth x is the earth of the CWSeed’s new animated show The Ray, where canonically jewish characters/jewish coded characters such as barry allen, ray palmer, and kara zor el along with multiple other superheroes are nazis. i’m not going to explain why this is gross because you have google right at your fingertips.
comic books are jewish american culture. that’s right, say it with me. COMIC BOOKS ARE JEWISH AMERICAN CULTURE. every classic comic superhero you love was created by jews and tells a jewish story. batman? jewish. superman? jewish. wonderwoman? jewish. every single one of them tells a jewish story.
by making these characters nazis, they turn our own creations against us. we contributed to society, but they’d rather see a world where we’re dead than one where they give us credit for everything we’ve contributed.
so here’s the deal: don’t watch the crossover live. don’t give them the ratings. if you’re really despesrate, but the seasons on amazon or something and watch it right after it airs. watch it illegally online. don’t give them the ratings, let them know that this isn’t ok.
yell on social media. tweet the dctv writers. be vocal about how ugly this is. do something this is so bad please protect ur local jews.
That is literally me, Tom and I are literally same person, his love for Spiderman is so strong ! I need to meet this man ASAP to tell him how much I love him and I’m so proud he followed his dreams. He ain’t no idiot, he perfect. Love of my life right there!
