This post centers on Impulse, because he's Impulse

I know He Who Must Not Be Named is persona non grata around her, but when I saw that the Young Justice 80-Page Giant was full of stories of other people writing YJ (admittedly, not as well), well, I had to share. I won't spoil the framing story, but suffice to say it's an excuse to present Young Justice in a bunch of cracky situations like hunting vampires in a silent film and being hit on by older women.

I don't know what's up with the western story, as instead of really having fun with the concept, it's just them saying lines of "Western" dialogue and then thought-bubbling about how lame their dialogue is. Next!

I'll pause for all the otaku in the audience to laugh uproariously.

Uh, funny. I always see Naruto being based on Impulse. One, they hyperactive knuckleheads that can make clones of themselves who never look before leaping. And now they have Robin looking almost like Kakashi.... What issue is this?

Man, that brings back memories. Remember when comics were as cool as manga? (And I say that with as completely ironic twat, since I buy more comics than manga.)

And now, an entirely relevant pair of link.

"How about MANGA superheroes."
OK, I'll admit, that part was funny.

"You look like a feline." Is that bad writing, or is Tim Drake really that much of a geek?

Neither. It's part of the 'badly translated/dubbed anime' format.

I forget the plot of the issue but the jist is that Young Justice is being forced to run through various genre cliches.

Robin is Kakashi, it's all coming together.

It is deeply disappointing to me that I will likely never get to use the phrase 'they're so crooked, they have to screw their socks on' in public. Similarly, that I seldom have the presence of mind to break out the many bizarre exclamations I have learned through comics, such as 'Sockamagee!', 'Cushlamochrie!' and 'Well, butter my ears and call me toasty!' I generally just go 'Whoa' or 'Wow' or something. Life is cruel.

If the bit with Secret had been written today, there would have been a Lolcats joke. We all know it's true.
