Joker as Riff Raff
Harley as Magenta
Robin (which one i don't know) as Columbia (perfect)
Wonder Woman as Janet (Slut!) Weiss
Superman/Clark as Brad (I can make you a man) Majors
and Batman (c. Adam West judging by the mask) as the Doctor Frank-N-Furter himself

Actually, I think Supes is supposed to be Rocky. I know he's wearing glasses, but the shorts...

nonono, he's gotta be Brad. He and WW!Janet are holding hands, and look at the socks.

But that still leaves the question, who IS Gotham's Rocky?

The Robin has to be Dick. :) He would also make a great Doctor. He would SO rock those fishnets! ;)

Oh boy. Way to ruin a perfectly hilarious nerd-picture by the Supes/Wondy handholding :headdesk: I know I'm really sensitive about this, but I am SO sick of seeing — okay, okay, I'm actually not going to say anything more for fear of ranting inanely.

WHERE is that legality scan from? Because it's the greatest face-off I never considered.

Sorry about that — it's just that the Supes/Wondy coupling is something I hate with the power of a thousand exploding suns for about fifty different reasons, and it's overuse just makes me gnash my teeth. Yeah, Wondy just can't not be with Supes right? All strong women need a stronger man and...okay, okay, I'm stopping now.

Well, these are just a small fraction of the aforementioned reasons for my hate:
1) No, a strong man wouldn't need a stronger woman. Sure, it's probably attractive in a purely sexual way, but Supes has never accidentally hurt anyone except when his powers were screwed up, so the idea of "accidentally hurting" is a complete bust. And even so, common powers = compatible? That's it? These are people, they're not so shallow that all they need is similar powers to hook up, nor are they so shallow that they wouldn't accept someone physically weaker than themselves.
2) Supes and Wondy sit exactly on that line where they're too similar to provide a colorful clash of personality, yet come from such completely different background and such different philosophies that they have absolutely nothing in common. Sure, they make good friends, but how could they possibly live together? Clark is a farmboy-turned-big city reporter. Diana is an Amazonian princess with a mythological culture. Who's going to abandon their entire origin, identity, home base and supporting cast to live with the other? Clark? Diana? Both, becoming some icky god and goddess lording it over humans? Neither Clark nor Diana would be willing to abandon Metropolis or Themyscira.
3) Supes is not a fish out of water. At all. He has no memories of Krypton, has grown up around humans since he was a newborn, didn't know he was an alien until he was a teenager, and has always thought of himself as human. Sure, the Pre-Crisis version of him was more alien than human, but he hasn't been that way at all since 1986. Diana IS a fish out of water in "man's world", but again she's not alone (well, wasn't for years, until certain recent retcons, but since I'm talking about her long-established personality here...) - she's got all the Amazons and their society to go back to when she's not superheroing, so she wouldn't exactly be lonely and looking for companionship anyway. about the uber-long rant. My pet peeves tend to be very detailed ;)

From: [personal profile] baxter2814
No. Jesus no. Kill Bill's speech was absolutely 100% bullcrap as it applies to Superman nowadays. Bill's speech was about PRE-CRISIS Superman. He's a completely different character than post-crisis Superman. Post-Crisis, Clark is the original personality, and Superman is the disguise. And no, learning he was an alien didn't change Clark's outlook much at all. It was developing powers that made him realize he had to help people. Sure, it changed his life, but not his character. And the Fortress of Solitude...well, it doesn't get used much. Occasionally it's a place where he can be alone to think, and to hold Kryptonian tech that Supes doesn't know where else to put. It's mainly a holdover from before COIE.

As for the other points...well, you say those are valid arguments, I vehemently disagree. Eh, difference in opinion.

Why'd you hate that story? The plot was kind of stupid, but the devotion part was touching.

From: [personal profile] baxter2814
Actually, you can find a gazillion instances where it's firmly established that Clark is the "original" personality. Some people like Birthright's explanation that there's "Daily Planet Clark" (who's partly fake), "Superman" (who's also partly fake) and "Real Clark" (the original person). This has been tacitly accepted as "sure why not" kind of origin, but it's been clarified, many, many, many times, that Clark is the person underneath Superman. I'm sorry, but it's not opinion, it's fact. I'm taking this straight from the evidence of the books, and neither Birthright nor Infinite Crisis changed the way the writers have been writing his personality in the present day.

Now of course, with a character like Superman, who goes through dozens of different writers and pops up as a minor character in loads of non-Superman titles, of course there'll be some writers who didn't do the research and imply that Clark Kent is just a disguise, so I'm not denying you can totally find scans from comics that will support the alternate theory, but any slip-ups like that will be outnumbered ten to one by other canon instances of Clark mentioning how Clark is the original guy. This conflicting canon is just a side effect of the way comics are written in the present day — it's a phenomenon Tv Tropes calls "Running The Asylum", in which canon becomes indistinguishable from fan fiction.

As for the story: Clark didn't forget who Lois was. He forgot her last name or something, but he never forgot her. And he was tempted to sleep with Diana, but he held back because he still remembered Lois, so it wasn't really saying "lol Supes/Wondy is dumb" as much as "Supes really loves Lois". I'm not sure if that comic has been posted on this site or not, but I'm sure I've got a scanned copy of it on some thumb drive here. (I do agree that that comic was kind of stupid and pointless though).

Oh, puh-leeze. As if Mr. My Parents Are Dead Batman can pull that off. Diana should have been the good doctor.

Batman is Janet.
