Cr1tikal is hilarious on his own but the funniest thing about him is that he hid his identity for like 9 years (longer??) and people judged from his unusual voice and rude way of speaking that he was either this super obese guy or hideous deformed degenerate
fast forward almost 10 years later and the punchline is revealed: he’s looks like he was carved by angels and everyone loses their shit
In terms of raw power, would you say America Chavez is on the same playing field/an even match for (or stronger than) any given Kryptonian?
Now, if I was in my serious writer mode, I’d argue that separating any superhero character from the context of their universe just doesn’t work. Nothing is neutral, and superhero stories are stories, not simulations. When you do crossovers between universes, the rules are always fudged (i.e. created a new set of rules which tries to give a significant level of dignity to all individuals). My go to example is always Superman vs the Authority. If Superman fought the Authority in the DC universe, the story,… well, the story would probably go like ACTION COMICS 775. If Superman fought the Authority in the old DC universe, he’d be turned into ham-salami in two seconds in a gloriously cynical punchline. Or to put it another way - “Batman only wins” only works in a universe which is willing to go along with that. As such, we can’t really compare them in any 1:1 which is fair. They’re different fictional constructs with different purposes - though America was explicitly me doing a riff on Wonder Woman, which may help place her. I’ve always meant to write a little essay on my thinking behind America.
Now, if I was in a less serious and terrible troll mode, I’d probably say something like “America’s magic. She’d kick Superman’s head clean off.”
Gonna try to update daily for the next 4 or 5 days. Also - yes, that is Sans’ lab. My story assumes the reader knows a few of undertale’s “secrets” ….hopefully that won’t be too confusing? :x And this punchline of the comic won’t be “don’t forget”. I promise.
Honestly kinda tying in with what I mentioned last night, I’m not a big fan of ripping out Flowey’s petals intended to be the punchline of a joke, for the same basic reasons, and especially if by Frisk. I wind up just seeing it as the equivalent of a little kid getting their hair painfully ripped out and that’s just not funny it’s sorta just fucked.
bellamy and clarke are both stand-up comedians, and as bellamy insists: they’re the comedy world brangelina. everybody loves them. they’re good, maybe the best. then the mount weather fiasco ensues, and after that, london. as a result, clarke commits some serious comedy crime: she steals bellamy’s jokes, and tells him goodbye.
