...All I'm going to say is I'm really interested to see what Giffen's going to bring to the table in #4 and leave it at that.

I have always disliked the term skank, an ugly sounding word with an ugly meaning. I certainly don't like an ostensible hero using it, even if it is to provoke the baddies to make a mistake.

Did Rip Hunter start dying his hair? Because seriously that's what Ollie looks like in these scans.

"Sign of the Times"? I'm with Linkara on this one; equating videogame violence with THIS kind of psychopathic behavior is one HECK of a stretch...

I'm glad I'm not the only one watching his new series! Agree 100% that damn off-hand comment really threw me out of the comic.

Yeah, that bothered me, too.

I'd like to see his friend there chew him out for it when he gets back. Or perhaps Black Canary who may have been watching the proceedings.

It took you out of the comic? It annoyed me, and made me dislike the gal a bit, but it doesn't seem weird enough to take me out of the comic.

(Now, since it took a page and change for one of them to mention that they were watching a recording of what happened to Alpha, not a live feed, the fact that for the duration of that page I thought she and Ollie were calmly watching a man (even a wannabe thrill-seeking villain) get beaten to death without lifting a finger to stop it - THAT took me out of it briefly.)

So when does Ollie show up?

Seriously, has this guy ever smiled? Ever? In his life? It's like they took the idea of Bruce Wayne and took away all levity and sense of humor whatsoever.

I don't like this guy. One facial expression, no passion in anything he's doing other than INTENSE GLARE. Bleh, do not want.

Seriously. And, of course, when he's fighting a female "villain" in a rather tight bodice. Oi, DCnU, why?

Ahh you and I both watch his "That's All I'm Saying" series. As much as I like Green Arrow, that was a very stupid comment she made.

MTE. I'm still waiting for the guy with the goofy facial hair.

Yeah that comment was a real wtf for me and I was enjoying the issue(I still did). It was like way to target a group, who often reads comics.

The parts where he was with his friends he was a lot more light hearted, the old guy just brings tension and its hard to smile in a fight.

Not trying to tell anyone how to feel

And I understand why skank offends you all, but a part of this series seems to rail against the way pop culture glamours negetive behavior(Gangsters, out of control rich girls, recklessness). The women in this villian gang he is fighting seem to be the spoiled reality tv starlets we see in real life, with superpowers. Coupled with the fact that this is Oliver "my way or the highway"Queen its not surprising if he painted that vulgar of a picture of them.

I feel like I should be more offended, but sometimes its nice to have a hero who wont kill, but at the same time does not give a fuck about generally anything in between(including the bad guys feelings). Honestly I do not know how most heroes stay so polite with the person trying to kill them. Besides its Green fucking Arrow who doesn't expect this from him now, oddly enough he has not had sex in the new dc yet.

Completely took me out of the comic. Maybe it was the fact that a techie was saying those line that really made it still. More likely I am just so tired of that same old line of garbage. Books have "killed" more people than video games have even thought about killing.

Hn. Funny how peoples' reactions go in totally different directions sometimes.

Ollie using the word skank? Ollie using the word skank? With no quotations mark à la Jason-using-his-opponents-insults-against-them?

Just... what the fuck, Krul. What. The. Fuck.

Never once has one of my video games (virtual murder simulators) made me want to go out and hurt people.

This comic sort of does though.

I'm going to echo a previous GA post.

I've enjoyed the work of H.P. Lovecraft for years.

When will I succumb to my darker urges and start killing in the name of the Dread Cthulhu?

Because Alfred would wash their mouths out with soap (and yes, that includes ALL the superheroes, but just the Batclan, because Alfred is just that awesome)

I cheerfully admit to setting unrealistically high standards of my heroes, but that's why they are SUPERheroes IMHO.

You can make a case that video games are more active than comic books, where the reader's experience is still a very passive one.

Even in video games, the active-ness of players in a story is important. I felt a lot worse in the final Desmond/Lucy scene of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood than I did when Andrew Ryan and Jack did Golf in Bioshock. in Brotherhood, the game made me do something that I, as a player did not want to do.

However... their main point, that if people kill people in video games then how hard can it be to do it in real life is nonsense
