Which one bothers me more, that Ellen's calling Buddy on shit she'd have learned to deal with years ago, or that the shit she's calling on him has never been one of Buddy's things since, well, fucking ever?

It gets worse!

(sorry this scan is bigger and still looks shitty. this is why i don't like using my own scans)

I'm-- I'm really beside myself with anger right now. I found it jarring to find Buddy fighting supervillains to begin with when this mini started, but to completely change his role as a superhero only to set up fucking this is infuriating! Family always came first for Buddy! And Maxine, dammit, Maxine was supposed to grow up to be Animal Girl. :( :( :(

There's more bullshit with Cliff who's grown up to be a workaholic lawyer to be like his dad, but Conway essentially bulldozes all of Buddy' relationships with his family (which is what made him worth reading to begin with!) so he can give us this:

Fuck this book. You can see what I'm guessing might be Prismatik coming in on the last panel to beat them up, well let her have him! I don't give a shit anymore, I'd rather save the money for food.

And here I was gonna come on here to fanwank about the League of Titans (Dick's Nightwing again, and hardly looks the mid-to-late forties he should be, discuss) and the really poor color consistency (Clark' eyes can decide if they're blue or green (i almost wanted to think it was Kon, since it would've been fun if he got Lex's eyes, but no dice), Kory's eyes being yellow, and Cliff going blond sometime in the skipped fifteen years), but the book had to come and along and distract me, by sucking.

I'll give it one thing, Chris Batista brings it pretty fierce, but even he can't save this sinking ship.

So wait, how old is Kory? Is it an alien, non-aging thing?

When I wrote the first comment I hadn't even read the interview that mentions this is a time-skipped mini, I thought he'd just known her since she was really young. Buddy looks like he hasn't shaved or slept, not like he's had a time-skip!

Dick, currently, should be mid/late 20s. Dick started at 16, in current canon, yes? So, if he started ~3 years after Batman, that puts him at 23-28. (Batman and Superman have been around for somewhere between 10 and 15 years.) Add 15 to that, and he's in his late 30s to early 40s, here.

I can't imagine any continuity where he would have been 16 when he started.

But he is, I think, pretty consistently mid-20s now.

Yeah, I always tend to go by more of a vague idea about how old they all are based less on a number and more on "stage of life." And let's face it, once they get past 20 they pretty much all have a window of ages they can be. I think most people just go by the age the character seems based on whatever factors they pick up on, and keeping them relative to each other. Like I know somebody at one point said Bruce started at 19, which I just can't see. Batman has never been a teengager to me. It just wouldn't have worked, even with Bruce. Babs is older than Dick, who's older than Jason, who's older than Tim...but the Robins have gotten closer to each other in age to each other over the years. Kind of a sliding scale to give everybody a spot.
