Here's a question, since you do know who the President is in DC: Did Chavez have any notable or memorable characteristics?

This means Obama gave the greenlight to Sam Lane's genocide of the Kryptonians (I believe Lane said the President was with him) and explicitly gave a Presidential Pardon to Lex Luthor for his role in making the bomb that led to the genocide of said Kryptonians?

See this is why it is a good to have fictional presidents in your fictional comic universes.

How does the Eradicator "work" in post-Infinite Crisis Superman history? Wikipedia says: In the distant past, a dying alien race creates a number of containment devices in which to preserve their culture. They send them into space with contact teams, intent on meeting other civilizations. When a small group of these aliens arrive on the planet Krypton, they are met by the militant Kem-L, who kills them and corrupts one of the devices. Its new mission is to preserve his ideal of Kryptonian culture by eradicating all others — and thus the device becomes known as the "Eradicator."

Basically, I"m wondering how Superman found the Eradicator since he never left Earth ("Exiled") since he never killed those Pocket Universe Kryptonians (which was referenced all the way into 2003). The Eradicator's "deal" is mostly trying to turn Kal-El into a "proper" Kryptonian, although one about 200,000 years out of date. It even created the "first" Fortress of Solitude, using Kryptonian artifacts from the Phantom Zone, IIRC.

Hey, Barack Obama is the DCU president. Good on you, mate!

I'm probably the only one, but I totally misread the last page as saying "-the better to kill you with, my dear!" I think I'm over-tired.


I like the art, though Superman's quite a bit prettier here than I'm used to. Also, wasn't Pete Ross recently president? (I know, I know. The DCU changes presidents more often than X-men come back from the dead. Still...)

From: [personal profile] darkknightjrk
Pete Ross was thrown out some years back, before Infinite Crisis started. Last story he was prominent in was him becoming a super-villain called Ruin, though I'm pretty sure the whole thing was retconned after Infinite Crisis.

After Luthor, there was Ross for a short time, then another generic president, Jonathan Horne, until DC Decision, at which point Suarez was elected.

Or in other words, after Lex they really had no ideas on what to do with the job.

From: [personal profile] baxter2814
Oh Supes, you rescued Doomsday? I keep forgetting how stupidly adorable you are :D Love his "busted!" remark upon getting found out — it's like the inverse of people who are not as nice as Clark doing something that seems altruistic when they actually have an ulterior motive. "Hey, I totally have this coldly calculated plan for how Doomsday will be useful to me! It's...well...actually I was just worried about the poor guy."

I love that Obama is the Prez here, but I'm worried: the DCU changes it's presidents like crazy, and I'll bet anything a lot of them get killed by supervillains.

It is something of a softening of his stance on DD. Time heals wounds, I guess.

I don't think a single DC President has died in office oddly enough. Well, unless the generic one from "DC Decisions" did off-screen leading to this.

They do get held hostage or captured often enough, though :) (Morrison's JLA Earth-2 by the CSA, President Lex by both Joker and Despero, one of the generic recent ones by the Citizenry at the end of Gail's Wonder Woman).

Hank Henshaw fascinates me as a character simply because he's one of the few DC or Marvel cast members who reacts to all the traumatic things that have happened to the way a real person would; by going completely bugfuck insane. Most superheroes and -villains have been through events that would shatter a normal person's psyche, and they just keep trucking merrily along. Seriously, who the hell would ever get over being buried alive in real life?

Also, I can't see Obama calling on Superman on national television. He would know the Republicans would crucify him for it. "Why does he need this alien to do the job he was elected to do?" Besides, E.G. Marshall did it better.
