Well, that's what happens when 1) Jim Lee is in overall charge of the art department at DC Comics and 2) your company isn't churning out ninety different titles a month so you can find talented people to draw your comics.

I'm not saying all Marvel Comics have bad art but I saw Squirrel Girl #21 and Hulk #7 and the art is bad in both cases for different reasons. The bar just seems to be really low these days over there.

Hulk #7 is drawn by one of the Crossed artists, so of course it's not going to look all that good. Besides, it's not even a really good choice for a comic that's suppose to be about emotion, drama, and inner torment when the artist is just about the grim, gritty, and ugly.

I actually really like the art on Squirrel Girl, it has an indie feel to it that suits the tone of the book. I get it's gonna be polarising because it's quite stylised but there's a difference between having a style that's not pandering to the lowest common denominator and being unskilled.

It's so weird to see Vixen, Animal Man, and Katana all just working for Ra's like this

Date: 2017-06-18 03:29 pm (UTC)
From: [personal profile] remial
well, Vixen and Animal Man at least are more closely tied to the animal aspects of the earth so seeing them aligned with someone trying to push back humanity from taking over the earth isn't that outlandish. They could justify it (to themselves at least) that they are fighting for the good of the rest of the earth's population.

how weird is it to see Ra's with a hairstyle that isn't x-men inspired?
(yes I know he did it first, but Wolverine and his ilk took it and ran with it)

Delia or Deidre

That was only for the Batman Beyond Universe.

In this universe, Lucy is the daughter of Joker and Harley, that she put into adoption for her safety, who only knows Harley as a Aunt. Harley says in her ending that she will reveal that she is her mother, when she feels that she is 100% stable.

It's a Netherrealm game. The same team that makes Mortal Kombat. In their games you have a story mode and a arcade made(It's called multiverse mode in Injustice 2). You go through Arcade fighting your opponents and then fight the main villain of the game(Story mode villain), and then the game will give you an ending depending on the character (except premier skins don't get a ending. So using Mr.Freeze will get you Captain Cold's ending all the time). All the endings, including Red Hood's ending are on youtube if you are curious. Also sometimes aspects of a characters ending will be used in the next game , just like Mortal Kombat 9 had Johnny Cage learning to use green energy powers in his ending, it became cannon that he used those powers to defeat Shinnok and that his daughter inherited his powers to beat Shinnok.

I'm aware of who made it (I own it), but I haven't played any of their other recent games, much as I'd like to. I knew about Multiverse mode, but I thought those were random event battle type things; which one is the one for Arcade mode?

You have to do multiverse tutorial and , then it will unlock battle simulator. That's the arcade.

...Lucy is the daughter Harley had with the Joker. The mother of Delia and Deidre Dennis is not Lucy. Harley survived getting knocked into the ravine in Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker and went into hiding. She eventually married a guy named "Davidson".

SPOILERS

He and the other Teen Titans were forced into the Phantom Zone by Superman (not very long after Metropolis blew up), after Superboy (who was mortally wounded but survived as a Phantom Wraith), tried to take the projector when he realised Superman was going to go off the deep end.

The annoying thing is that they are never mentioned afterwards. Cyborg states in both Injustice games that they Titans died in Metropolis, so presumably Supes lied to him. Starfire is being added as a DLC character soon so maybe she'll explain things.

My hope was we would get a Roy Harper skin for INJUSTICE 2. (Green Lantern with a different head, voice and dialogue). Now perhaps it is best we don't see Arsenal/Red Arrow.

Still, I had some hopes for intro dialogue.

"Red Arrow. Wow. That's an original name."
"And Green Arrow is sophisticated?"
"Branding is everything."

Roy being a Green Lantern would certainly be an unusual development, but if Hal wanted to piss Ollie off in the afterlife, it'd be a start!

starwolf_oakley means as a skin for Green Arrow. They made a John Stewart skin for Hal Jordan, but unlike the last game he has his own intro lines and clashes.

Yes, I meant a Green Arrow skin. Although...

"Roy Harper. You have the ability to overcome great fear."
"I do?"
"Uh, yes? And now you'll understand that having authority does NOT turn you into a freedom-hating fascist, OLLIE!"
"...I know that's you, Hal."
"...Who's Hal Jordan? He sounds handsome."

The games occasionally retcon or contradict things in the comics (for example, Martian Manhunter apparently survived and disguised himself as an Atlantean archivist (the same one that alternate-universe Aquaman met near the beginning of the game), and the incident that lead to Damien leaving Batman wasn't accidentally killing Dick Grayson but rather intentionally killing Zsasz).

SPOILERS for Cyborg's ending, but he ends up rescuing the Titans from the Phantom Zone when he beats Brainiac and we see Tim, Kon (who's apparently not dying anymore) and... Starfire. Non-canon, sure, but somewhat weird that Cyborg mentions she was "lost in Metropolis" when she's clearly shown here as being forced into the Phantom Zone.

I think he's under the impression that she died in Metropolis. Since no one really talks about them much, it makes me wonder if Supes didn't tell the Regime that the Titans were all in Metropolis after the fact. If they knew he'd sent them into the Phantom Zone, especially so early on the timeline, there might have been more push-back than he actually got.

All right, I really like the Daughter Of The Bat's name. Athanasia tickled my brain, so I looked it up and it's an early Christian creed describing the nature of the relationship between the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Clever, but I'd be quite annoyed if my name was a reference to where I fit among Bruce and Damian...

This comic is so good.
Ra's is kind of hard to argue with. He has a point but is going about it in a way that could lead to a biased dystopia. Alternatively, the heroes are more human, but can't really do anything to help the planet because of barriers. This is getting me conflicted but in a good way.
Art is good. I think Tom Taylor should write Harley Quinn.

Always a great story to fall back on (especially if you're a huge fan of the game which I am), and the artwork is gorgeous... but there was something about this that bothered me that I couldn't quite put my finger on... But I think I figured it out. It's Harley, or rather her look in the comics.

Now, don't get me wrong, Harley is well-drawn... but it seems like any outward hint of being around Joker for so long is just gone. She looks so stable and in control which is jarring for me having played the game.
