I was thinking. We always talk about killjoys outside the zones, livingn in dofferwnt climates and their different forms of fighting. And i realized that destroya probably wouldnt be something that spread to these people, sure everyone in the zones and around battery city knew of it. But i doubt a killjoy living out on the other side of the country would.
These ‘joys might have their own myths and legends, much like their own version of destroya. Like imagine a huge robot in a clearing of a forest somewhere in the upper midwest with trees growing through it that is worshipped by the people around it. Or the rumor through the bayou that theres an anchient god living beneath the waters. Or the myth of some deep sea creature on the east coast that protects them.
Also on this note, i would think that the Phoenix witch would exist everywhere. But her appearance is always different depending on the culture of the area
I’m not a fan of the Killjoy comics, but man…considering the reactions to subtle gay characters like Josh Gad’s character in Beauty and the Beast, it was pretty gutsy to have multiple openly LGBT characters in same-sex relationships. Like, another writer probably wouldn’t have even bothered with lesbian characters, and made Korse “subtly” gay. Like “Oooh, is this character gay? He acts a bit feminine and flamboyant, so maybe he’s gay! But whoa, hold on there, we don’t want to offend the homophobes in the audience. We’ll quickly back off so you can imagine that he’s straight and the ‘gayness’ was just a joke. Is Korse gay? We’ll never tell!!”
And let’s be honest…any other writer probably would have made Korse fall in love with Blue and played up some cheesy “forbidden love” angle, which tragically ends with Blue dying as she tries to escape.
Im desperately trying to find an explanation for radiation in the zones, but there just… is none.
There is no kind of bomb that would cause nuclear fallout that lasts decades long that still remains harmful unless were talkin nuclear power plant meltdown like Chernobyl but the closet power plant to L.A in real life really isnt that close to be an issue for Battery City
Nuclear fallout doesnt really last long at all! In a few hours, intensity drops to 10% and after a week or two is just at 0.1% because it’s all used and burnt up on impact.
Like, Ive even looked at hypothetical bombs to create lasting radiation residual but it just doesnt work like that.
In short, there is no radiation in the zones or city, however, people that survived through the Helium Wars will have injuries and health effects from fission bombs
