My last post kicked up an old debate about superheroes killing villains. So I thought I'd examine the history of a character who is arguably one of the fiercest proponents of the no-killing rule regarding this matter.

Batman never kills... or does he? )

And it's... really creeping me out.

One page from the preview of Invincible Iron Man #500 on CBR.

By this, I mean the little ditty in Invincible Iron man #2 in 2008. They revealed a Filipino super hero team called the "Triumph Division", and a bunch of people had about a dozen bones to pick with Matt Fraction for it.



.... mongoose? Seriously? )

My last couple of posts have dealt with moral issues regarding the world of superheroes, so on a lighter vein, I return to the Martian Manhunter series for a couple of (unintentionally) humorous moments.

I have a question about Huntress and Arsenal's one night stand so of course I turn to the lovely ladies and gents of scans_daily to hopefully find the answer.

The first I heard of it was in BoP: Dinah, Babs and Helena are meeting in a park to discuss whether or not they can work together as a team and the subject of Helena's one night stands with Dick and Roy comes up and Helena has the brilliant line 'Archers... they pull a mighty bow but they're quick to let fly'. Which of course pisses Dinah off royally and nearly ends the team before it even begins.

I went back and read the Outsiders issues where Helena takes Roy's place on the team while he recovers from being shot, thinking that would be where I could find the Huntress/Arsenal stuff (I'm a massive Huntress fan and I've been trying to track down and read pretty much everything she's been in because yes I am obsessive) but apart from the kiss at the end )


there's not really any interaction between the two and certainly no sexy times going on between the pair.

So folks my question is this: is this the first time it's ever referenced or is does the Helena/Roy stuff happen in different issues to the ones I've been reading?
