Don't know what to tag this with so I did Image as they were the original publisher way back.

...

'Octopusses' is correct. 'Octopi' is not. 'Octopodes' is also acceptable. The rest of that conversation is amusing, but...nyargh.

The political/social media parody is a bit flat...accurate, but flat.

If that guy with the Union Jack is that one obnoxious person I know but don't know the name of, his mouth is way too small.

This seems pretty different than the original Fathom. Which was much less about an open superhero and much more about a secret civilization starting up a war.

Since I only recognize Milo Yiannopoulos, I clearly don't. (Which isn't comforting, since I'm familiar with Milo frigging Yiannopoulos.)

I didn't even catch that they were meant to resemble real people.

The woman with the earrings is supposed to be Anita Sarkeesian. I get that she's supposed to be a parody, but criticizing a "real" person for their fashion choices isn't the level of her usual discourse. Making her this flavor of straw-woman smacks of lazy writing.
