[personal profile] flint_marko posting in [community profile] scans_daily

This is from the Great Ten #9 by Tony Bedard and Scott McDaniel.


Her husband leaves her and she buries herself in her work, while at home "she was alone with the fear that no man would ever want her once they learned she was barren."



By the fourth day the children formed the nucleus of a special forces platoon overseen by Director Jiang.

Could it be because the Immortal Man in Darkness is a little bit more alive than a rotting corpse and the Seven Deadly Brothers are just enough of a collection of violent sociopaths to seven-team her?

Because that is really skeevy.

i get that it illustrates the point, but none of the people shown are really metahuman enough for their definition of " sex produces organism with same abilities "; two of them are just normal schmucks who got infusions from an external source, and the third's more or less wearing a Durlan

but, hell, " any sufficiently advanced.. thing " and all that

and i suppose wearing something derived from the symbiotic tech of shapeshifters probably does a genetic number on you as well

Being merged with Durlan DNA would pretty much guarantee your kids were partly Durlan in origin, plus yes, it's not like standard genetics has much to do with her nature.

I wonder if they'll reference the one child that Nightwing saved for her, one that had been experimented on by Dr. Creighton Kendall and which IIRC was aging normally.

I was wondering that myself, and then I realized that the person telling the story above refers to her as "mother" and her other children as "sisters and brothers". So maybe this is told from the POV of that one surviving child?

timgueugen: (not buying it)
From: [personal profile] timgueugen
The idea of her having sex with her fellow team members seems rather more complication than would be needed. Given the concept it would be just as likely the other members of the Great Ten would be ordered to make regular sperm donations that would be yanked out of a freezer as needed. Amongst other things it would avoid any potential jealousy and other interpersonal problems between team members.

The idea of her being a publicly known figure also seems wrong. I could imagine say North Korea going that route, but China? The international PR inplications of such a program would be obvious to the Chinese government. The PRC of today isn't the PRC of the '50s, they're a bit more aware than that.

The idea of the same government that champions (and ruthlessly enforces in some provinces) a one-child policy (even though its starting to cause major demographic damage with infanticide of baby girls) making a "hero" out of someone who pops out 20 babies at a time is ridiculous. Even the Communist Party of China wouldn't be that PUBLICLY hypocritical. You can tell it was a Westerner who came up with this character (Morrison, no?)

This is just so creepy. This is DC's idea of diversity? I'm sorry but this is the one member of the Great Ten that I not only find uninteresting but offensive as well - her super-power is breeding? From the country that brought us the one-child policy they use cops to enforce with sterilization (among other unpleasant things)? WTF?

Lord, it went from "bad idea, dudes" to "OMG WTF WERE YOU THINKING?!" now that they've written her backstory.

Seriously? Woman goes from top-level particle physicist to supersoldier breeding machine?

Given the tone of the issue so far, I suppose there's no chance of her attitude about her 'powers' being: "Yeah, it's my duty to my country, but it still sucks, hurry up with the epidural already so I can get off my back and go do some actual goddamn physics research -- you know, the stuff I spent my whole life learning to do, and that I'm really damned GOOD AT!"

An attitude like that might at least make this a little less jaw-droppingly WTF.

This is what bugged me a great deal about it too, on top of everything else you get an origin that screams of 'woman's place is having babies, not doing science!' Ugh.

As a whole, i'm annoyed. I really liked the rest of this. The other characters included some genuinely interesting and original ideas.

I'm afraid that, for me, this particular character rather ruins the whole thing. I'm worried that that makes me sound hyperbolic, but really, it's just that bad. And I have the added worry that, if the minds behind these characters are the same, what if this character is only the more obviously offensive one - are the others actually pissing off Chinese or part Chinese folks who have a greater knowledge of their own culture?

Honestly, my biggest worry is that this presumably got through planning without someone saying "Hey, you know, maybe this isn't a good idea". Or, perhaps worse, that someone did, but it was dismissed.

Wait a week? That's their lifespan? That's particularly creepy.

I thought her power was having kids who aged to maturity in 25 days, stayed at peak abilities for 25 years and at any one time she could have 25 litters of 25 for up to 625 children, a small army.

Where the hell did I get that idea now? Hmm...

OK, I'm stupid here but is this comic taking place during a time of severe conflict that they NEED an army of meta human kids?

Cause it seems like setting her aside to breed more kids constantly is a waste of resources unless they needed armies. they could just leave her on the side lines as a last resort.

Or am I missing something?
