Unless you're a big name writer's pet character, I guess.

Congo Bill is still looking for his pal Malavar, the gorilla scientist who Prometheus kidnapped back in CRY FOR JUSTICE. From what he's been able to piece together, Malavar escaped and was last seen searching for the legendary Fountain of Youth. Figuring that wherever the Fountain is, it's their best lead, Bill and Starman seek out an individual they know for a fact knows its location.

They track down the Fountain of Youth, which turns out be a Lazarus Pit, in Florida. Malavar's there too.

Some bad guys attack, so Blue and Gold and friends have to fend them off long enough for Malavar's friend to fully resurrect. They do, and he does:

They use the JLA teleporters to send him home.

Interesting, this looks actually kind of interesting, if only for one issue.

As Linkara said, Cry for Justice should have been about Congorilla and Mikaal, as they were the only two that did anything interesting.

...Well the Shade did too, but I'm massively biased in regard to him anyways.

From what I remember, the quote from Starman in which Jack Knight is suprised that Mikaal is now dating a bloke, having previously been in a relationship with a woman, had Mikaal basically saying: "Jack, I'm an alien. You could no sooner understand my sexuality than you could a dolphin's."

You mean Mik has got a restraining order from SeaWorld like Troy McClure? "When we say he sleeps with the fishes, we MEAN he sleeps with the fishes"

More it's completely different to a regular human's sexuality and as a member of a completely seperate and unrelated species to humanity, Jack's confusion about him not conforming to one sexuality or another is interpreted by Mikaal as "since I come from another planet and am a member of a completely different alien species, and, unlike Superman who is all for all intents and purposes a naturalised human, grew up on the other planet, trying to place me in terms like gay or straight won't work as my sexuality is as different from you, as your's is from a dolphin."

(note: him being an alien dating human's could be another factor that Mikaal is mentioning)

Oh, I understand a dolphin's sexuality all right, those rapist bastards.

Actually, I don't think a dolphin's sexuality would be remarkably different, would it?

We can observe a dolphins sexual habits and make inferences based on the wider behaviour of the species, but because we can't communicate with them on their own terms, we can't comprehend what makes a particular dolphin be attracted to a particular other dolphin, not on an individual basis at least.

And as it turns out dolphin sexuality is confusing enough.

You could say the same thing about humans, couldn't you? As in, "I have no idea what she sees in him."

Ah, dolphin love.

Oh indeed you can at the basest level, but assigning it to another species increases the indication of "other-ness". You could look at a flamboyant "out" guy and guess he was gay. Possibly dolphins do the same thing, but we have no concept of what would count as "flamboyant" to them (Though pierced fins, glitter on the flukes, a blowhole ring might be indicative I suppose)

And why, when you say "dolphin love", do I hear it in Barry White's awesome rumbling growl, with a funk soundtrack underpinning it?
