Official: The DC Universe a piece of crap

No, that's not some not-so-clever attempt at a jab against some latest DC development. I'm referring to a plot point in the latest issue (#9) of Doom Patrol, which remains a great read.

So the bad guys, the Pan-Dimensional Gentrifiers, are after Danny the Brick (formerly Danny the World).



In case it's too small to read, the text Danny's displaying reads: Mmm. World War One chic. Quite dashing.







The Gentrifiers are preparing to take over the Earth (or possibly the universe; it's not clear), when they run a property viability assessment. They decide they don't want it after all.


All those Crises and mega-events were good for something!

Danny is a brick and gay?

He started as a transvestite street. Then he became a planet. Now he's a brick... and gay.

Not really a huge leap, if you think about it...

Wait, I didn't know he was gay. I knew he was a transvestite, but the gay thing is new to me.

Ok, I hate to ask, pardon my ignorance but how can a street be a transvestite?

It's kind of hard to describe, but Danny was full of macho, manly shops, like ammo stores and mens outfitters, but is always window dressed in feminine style.

*giggle* I would love to see a street that looked like that, in a comic or in real life. Got any images of transvestite!street!Danny to share? *makes puppy face*

ILU. Oh, that is very cute. I'm particularly fond of the gun shop's pink curtains.

Here's a wider shot. The writeup even includes an explanation of his name.

It's a two way street.

He's transvestite and camp as hell, but he's never been stated as gay.

... You know, describing Danny as 'camp' makes me think...

He gives rather a new meaning to 'camp as a row of tents'...

And 'pitching a tent.'

Lucky brick.

Meh. For the reasons mentioned above, he's unlikely to appreciate it.

I think I remember a shortpacked comic about that.

Girl: Would like to see my chest?
Guy: Sure.
Girl: Oh, I was hoping that you were gay.
Guy: I am but I don't mind looking.

Or something much funnier. XD

That was hysterical--but I do hope she took the brick out before she shrunk, otherwise...clothing malfunction on a Giganta level. :O

[identity profile] daningram.insanejournal.com 2010-04-08 12:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Not really. It's a normal sized brick, it didn't grow or shrink with her. Might be a little uncomfortable, depending on how the costume stretches, but nothing that bad.

Pointy brick on a skintight chest suit piece? Which is already constricting her breasts?

I can't imagine it NOT hurting. D:

For context's sake, he turned into a beach bungalow by the end of the issue.

...Yeah.

When Danny finally gets pulled out of Rita's top he'll 'say' : Eh, should've gone with Cliff's pants.
