In ur 'hood, pwnin' ur homiez

In honour of his upcoming appearances in Blackest Night, I bring you a scene from Suicide Squad #49.



Life is rough enough as a street punk but think how much more dangerous it must be in the comic book universes. Not only do you have rival gangs, angsty drug lords, tweakin' homies, and the risk that the mark you've chosen is an out-of-uniform cop, you have the added risk that the mark you've chosen is an out-of-costume super-villain.








....Well that was anti-climactic.

Yeah, that's got to be a real hazard in the big cities like Metropolis and Gotham (well, maybe not Gotham... I don't think Batman's villains ever go out in civvies).

And if you live in Keystone/Central, the chance of running into a Rogue out of costume is pretty damned high...

I do love Digger's smirk in the third panel. He is totally going to enjoy pwning these idiots.

Well, the Rogues generally don't have to expel effort to take down street punks. The superhero community might consider them as jokes, but they're all formidable fighters. Didn't Cold ice a guy who attempted to stick-up the corner store where Cold was buying batteries?

Snort, oh that is awesome! I love the bit with Len and Tarpit at the Combines game, where he makes Angie hold his beer and stomps down to help Flash 'cause he actually paid for the tickets....

The Rogues really have that 'this is OUR city' possessiveness you usually only see in the heroes, don't they?
