bluefall: Starbuck looking unimpressed (what the frak)
[personal profile] bluefall posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Four pages from this week's BATMAN: CONFIDENTIAL, and the continuing saga of Batman vs old Blackhawk enemies.




Brief recap: some majorly high-tech plane engines have been stolen by an old enemy of the Blackhawks. Blackhawk's body is also missing. Zinda actually gets a sort of nice moment here when Bruce says "he'll use the engines to make superplanes" and Zinda rattles off all the other high tech stuff he'd also need, proving she does inded know her stuff as a pilot, but it's a bit irrelevant since obviously Bruce has already figured all this out and has them en route to the old Blackhawk Island. (With Zinda flying, and yet she seems surprised when they get there.)

At the island, Bruce tells Zinda to circle the plane. Zinda, for some reason, makes a halfhearted, pretty childish protest, calls him "worse than Huntress" (not Helena, mind) as he jumps down onto the island, and then quietly follows him on her own, hoping he won't be mad.





Jesus, this guy. Look, again, DC, that is not how evil!Zinda worked. She was not Shark's loyal half-mindless devoted lover. She was a conniving badass supervillain who actually took over Shark's operation for herself on at least one occasion. Do some fucking research and stop trying to retcon Zinda into a passive traumatized victim.



Aaaaand that's the full extent of their fight.

Meanwhile Batman finds the supposed corpse of Blackhawk, finds out it's... not Blackhawk, and has a video chat with the bad guy.



.... you stay classy, DC.

Oh, and the bad guy is, predictably, apparently Blackhawk himself. Wait, I'm wrong, the scene just reads that way at first because the writing is shitty and Bruce raids Blackhawk's house and beats up on and extorts information out of his employees as to his whereabouts. Whatever, McGraw. At this point I don't even care.

If you find that offensive then I think that's probably more proof that you need to relax. lmao

I was just pointing out that bluefall's posts are more often than not very negative. She seems to enjoy hating comics more than she likes reading them, which kind of seems like the norm around here. <_<;

bluefall's posts are more often than not very negative.

But that's just . . . not true. Does "When Wondy Was Awesome" ring any bells? In fact, check bluefall's second most recent post. Doesn't seem very negative to me . . . but then I do need to lighten up, right?

I didn't mean they were all negative, just... most of them, maybe 99%. lol

The "When Wondy Was Awesome" posts were still kind of negative because well... the title is still implicating some negativity. lol

I would say the fact you had to make a big "postive" post in response to claims of excessive negativity supports my claims. <_<; And the overreacting with sarcasm and assumptions is really off-putting.

I'm not being passive aggressive or condescending. That was genuine advice. <_<; And I always type smilies in almost everything. I hope you don't work in the industry, because you handle some polite criticism like this I'd hate to see how you react to someone who really is being rude. o_o

I actually have to be told by my assistant that something is sarcastic since I can't understand it, I just know it's suppose to be rude ._.

LoL, I think you're adorable. But telling comic book fanboys/girls to take a chill pill is like trying to put out a forestfire with a teaspoon. On the whole, I think scans daily balances out it's own negativity with lots of wholesome hilarity. We're not here just to express our massive fan rage, even though it seems like that sometimes.

First of all, this.

Secondly,

I hope you don't work in the industry, because you handle some polite criticism like this I'd hate to see how you react to someone who really is being rude.

Polite criticism =/= "you need to relax" or "I hope you don't work in the industry". That's rude, condescending, not to mention insulting, and bookending such remarks between smiley faces = passive aggressive on the Internet.

Polite criticism = "Hey Bluefall, I really think you're overlooking the cool red colouring on some of those pages, and the fact that this is still a comic featuring Zinda post-Birds of Prey and does not include a reference to threesomes. It's not Blackest Night, either. I liked those aspects. Also, Batman."

Not liking what I like the way I like it = "Negative."

You know, a lot of cutsie smilies doesn't actually does a lot to shift the tone of your posts maybe in the way that you intend them to.

And yes, bluefall has done entire series of positive, scan-filled posts.

I always found [personal profile] bluefall's Oracle posts to be annoyingly positive.
