I think one of these might need a content warning. So, um...

Content Warning! Violence against Women!


So, the DCnU Justice League book has a Shazam back-up. New backstory for Billy Batson. New backstory which turns Billy from this sweet natured little optimist to a tiny tool who has been kicked out of several foster homes.

Way to completely miss the point of the character, dudes.

Also, the Amazons are now mass-murdering slave owners.




So, back in the day, there was an issue of the X-men in which Wolverine tries to stop Rachel from breaking the 'X-men don't kill' rule... stabbing her to death.


I thought that it's kinda funny that Wolverine is back to being Mr Stabby Stabby Death Death and is friends with Rachel again. Although I guess it's less about him killing and more about him stopping others from killing. Though Rachel had totally killed before this. And Wolverine actually went back later and tried to murder the hell out of Selene.

So, in conclusion, I've totally lost track of what I was trying to say with this.

I always love it when Wolverine is called out on his hypocrisy :)

I never quite saw the Wolverine one as him being hypocritical. He DOES kill, he's good at it, and he knows this and acknowledges it, but he's basically one mortal guy (Okay, stop giggling, you know what I meant)

Rachel, when possessed of the Phoenix Force, is closer to deity level than human, she can, literally, kill with a stray thought. The Phoenix Force, as it was used at the time, also has something of a bad rep when it comes to justifying the inflicting of cosmic scale casualties (6 billion brocolli people served.. char grilled in fact).

For her to start thinking she can act as judge jury and executioner based on human emotional repsonses is a VERY bad place for someone who already has some mental issues (Her guilt complex from the horrors she witnessed and inflicted during her Hound days) to be, especially when backed.

Selene is an "easy" kill, she deserves to die for more counts of murder than we have numbers for, over the past countless millenia. But can we rely on someone as emotionally fragile as Rachel Summers to always be able to control her instincts in such cases, when for her thought and deed can be the same thing?

Not that I don't agree with the sentiment, but I believe over in Wondyland the Amazons are now a buncha raping, murdering slave-sellers - as in, male babies = marketable commodity.

...Though I tend to read DCnU titles between fingers over my eyes, so it's possible I missed something about slaves on the island earlier...

Hey auggie18, I always find your comics entertaining but the way you've been doing black hair is just killing me; Billy, Selene, Wonder Woman, Conner etc.. all end up looking like they've gone grey.
I understand if you don't want to do a straight fill like you do for every other hair colour if you're concerned about it being darker than the lines, but have you considered blocking the hair completely when you draw the original lines (rather than suggesting strands as you do now)?
That way when you adjust the balance the hair should end up dark enough without becoming too dark.

I don't know the context for the Billy Batson stuff, but I just want to say for the record that I wouldn't blame a kid in the foster care system for being sceptical about people who want to adopt them.

Kids from unstable backgrounds tend to act out as a way of testing prospective caregivers, to see if they really care about them or if they're just going to bail at the first sign of trouble.

Mostly they do bail. That, and the fact that it often takes years for the process of adoption to be completed, tends to make kids in the system extremely wary of forming lasting attachments to the "perfectly nice people" who want to adopt them.

what issue of X-men was that?!?!

hoenstly more people should call him out on that stuff...

and while i am still on the fence about Wonder Woman (that particular 'scenario" not the comic itself. it's going to take alot more than that to make me hate that book) i LOVE her expression in that final panel :D

though i miss your wanda/jean stuff... maybe you could do a scene where it turns out Wanda and Jean are responsible for Rachel:D

I keep on imagining DCnu Billy as a typical 90's douchebag.
