Repeat after me: I am the woman of my own dreams. I require no validation. My wish is my command. My life is my own. I build it. My voice is my own. I use it. I am relentless in my dedication to trusting myself. I am insatiable in my thirst for the extraordinary, and I do not settle for the mediocre.
The mid-90s version of DC vs Marvel crossover is pretty crazy. Batman and Nightwing are trying to figure out what’s going on when they got their Batmobile stolen by Gambit and Wolverine of the X-Men. And also, Mole Man is having fun invading the Batcave. Meanwhile, Tim Drake as Robin is having awkwardness with Jubilee of the X-Men.
- Marvel vs DC v1 #2, 1996
DC comics = Batman (Bruce Wayne), Nightwing (Dick Grayson) and Robin (Tim Drake)
Marvel comics = Gambit (Remy LeBeau), Wolverine (Jame Howlett/Logan), Jubilee (Jubilation Lee) and Mole Man (Harvey Elder)
Okay, but if Lee and Ed are going to be palling around and Jim and Oswald are going to be in conflict fighting against each other for an arc then there needs to be an episode towards the end of the first half of the season where some greater threat (Scarecrow? Pyg? Ra’s?) kidnaps Lee and Ed, so now Jim and Oswald are forced to put aside their differences and work together to save the loves of their lives. (Bonus points if poor, clueless Grundy!Butch is the one to run to Jim and Oswald for help after discovering that his new friends have gone missing.)
Robin Laananen: “The girls were putting freckles on their faces. I love the photos of them interacting like that. That was right before they were gonna go back on for the encore. That was really great tour. We had FACIAL as support band who are great friends, so it was good vibes the whole way. They’ve never decided to not go back on for an encore but they have changed what songs they’re going to play depending on their mood. This last tour in March they stopped going offstage, and just put the encore songs in the setlist. Encores are basically like a runner stopping a race and having to start running again; you lose momentum. When a band comes offstage you can tell right away if they’re having a good or bad show. This one was one of the ones when everyone was having a good time and they jam more when they’re enjoying it. It’s those moments of raw emotion where there’s no facade being put up and they’re honest with how their day is going that I love to capture”.
