At least for a little while...

As I ponder the UK's bewildering referendum decision to leave the European Union I may need to retreat into silliness (it helps deaden the disappintment and pain).

Weirdly enough, my first foray into that is going to be via Jason Todd, in a classic romance comic situation.... kinda....

Sometimes, they come along with the one you'd be expected to be thinking.

That happened to Erica Roberson (born Erica Seleski) when she was in the hospital.

She'd ended up there after her nuclear dad'd exploded in her face.

Something came after her.

Something from space. )

"Thor is about a rebellious son who can’t please his father no matter what he does. Odin’s a jerk. He claims to have a very clear vision of Thor’s destiny, one that doesn’t involve wasting time with Earthlings, but like many fathers, he’s much better at articulating what Thor isn’t supposed to do than what he is supposed to do. There’s poor Thor, just trying to follow his heart, while Odin--time and again with all the compassion of a hurricane--punishes Thor for breaking specious rules that were never very clear to begin with. THAT, I got. THAT, hundreds of thousands of teenage readers have been getting since 1962. Characters, if they’re to have any longevity, have to speak to universal concerns." -- Mark Waid

'I also always thought this scenario would be creepy, an alien dropping a powerful weapon on our planet and saying, “Right now you have to protect this place.” That’s weird. I thought that this is basically an alien culture interfering with the native culture for reasons of their own interest.' -- Kieron Gillen

"I really do just dive down inside myself and connect [to characters I write] however I can. With Banner, I see a guy who claims he's driven by all the right things but, secretly, knows that some of his momentum comes from darker places he doesn't want to address — places like jealousy, regret, fear of never leaving a mark. And he's come to find that it's all self-sabotaging nonsense." -- Mark Waid

"On average I would say the Marvel Universe is a science fiction universe. There's magic in it, but at its heart it leans toward science. Even its cosmic stuff leans toward science. There's a difference between The Power Cosmic and magic. Its philosophy leans toward the star children and gods and space mysticism, which is essentially science overstretched, as opposed to magic which is a fundamentally different system. Now if you want to flip that around for a second, magic is a lot more important in the DC Universe in terms of its fundamental character." -- Kieron Gillen

'Then there’s the question of what [late discovery adoptees] do with the anger. There’s a famous book about adoption called “The Primal Wound” by Nancy Newton Verrier, which talks about the idea that there is a primal betrayal at that moment early on and it remains in the person’s psyche. Sometimes that negative emotion is transferred upon the parents who raised them or in some cases on the parents who chose to leave them. The question of how Tony feels is ongoing.' -- Kieron Gillen

"We also get some journalism at last. . . . I get to be TRANSMETROPOLITAN Warren Ellis for a few pages." -- Kieron Gillen

Now that the Annual came out this week, this is no longer the latest issue, so here are seven pages from Part 4 of "Iron Metropolitan."

"There’s a British designer called Matt Jones that said, the quote is, let me see if I can get it right, 'A city is a battle suit for surviving the future.' Basically, the concept of Iron Metropolitan is, what if the Marvel Universe’s greatest designer of battle suits put his mind to design a city?" -- Kieron Gillen

"If you’re a superhero mainstream fan, you may think of a riff on a certain major comics property, and you’d be correct. I’ll maybe talk about this more down the line, as there’s much to reveal. While I play up to it in certain places in the story (as here), we’ll be downplaying it elsewhere." -- Kieron Gillen, touching on the similarity between his new Iron Man villains and a certain hot DC property.

'I think most people see the fact that this is additive rather than destructive . . . And it introduces ideas like "Who are Tony's parents?" and "Who is Arno?" I haven't removed anything from Tony. There are no stories from the past that we can't do anymore. I've only created new ones. To me, that fits a Hippocratic Oath kind of vibe. I do no harm!' -- Kieron Gillen, on the big retcon

A new arc, "Iron Metropolitan," begins...

Since Stunner's returning next week in Superior Spider-Man, I thought I'd post about her role in the resurrection of Doctor Octopus, and what happened to her. It's a little bit of a follow-up to my last post where we were introduced to Stunner and saw Otto get killed.

It was mentioned before that Deathstroke's history with the Titans was wiped out by Flashpoint.

Here's how the story of his son Grant Wilson went down in the new continuity.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #20 came out in February, and covered Max Lord's motivations. How he went from "manipulative but decent" to "shoot Ted Kord in the head."
A teenaged Max comes home and finds his father dead from an apparent suicide. Max's mother has a different opinion.

"...good people are going to get hurt."
