Well, what could be more positive than the wedding of Scott Free and Big Barda?

Backstory: Scott and Barda have just confessed their love for each other, and the Apokolips Nows have taken Scott prisoner to be killed in a death-trap. So good to see everyone in character.

Remember, kids. If you're a New God, there's no reason at all you should leave it at "I used my superpowers to fake you out, suckers" when you can simulate it, THUS.

You must admit, Orion has always been a charisma vacuum "anguished warrior," but I'll take the variant that says things like "Thus, we turn a death trap into a life journey" with a straight face over the growling, monosyllabic badass he's become.

So the Source is God, right? That's right, GOD Himself decreed that Big Barda and Scott Free should get married. That Jack Kirby, he doesn't mess around when it comes to shipping.

Darkseid should be careful. The puns you invite by acting like a dick while wearing that helmet... brr.

I want an entire series of Darkseid just being a dick to people. Like, he puts laxatives in Batman's coffee, puts itching powder in Louis Lane's panties, covers Hal's toilet in yellow shrinkwrap. And he has to act like every act is an absolute act of evil incarnate.

"HAHAHAHAHA Foolish Batman can you outrun the Omega Laxative, the death that is shit?"

This is why I liked Final Crisis so much; it raised Darkseid's levels of dickishness so that he had power at the level of a fundamentalist's vision of Jesus. Essentially, he became Jack Chick.

Darkseid had the absolute best part in Final Crsis. That scene where he talks about how he stares at you with 6 billion eyes was so unbelivably badass that the entire series was worth it.

And then you have that lovely bit at the end where it is revealed that, like other organisers of militant, intolerant religions - i.e., the Pope - he is little more than a small-minded old man ranting desperately about how everything would be much better with him in charge.

Curious coincidence - the area I'm currently at is scheduled to be hit by crippling weather, possibly destroying landlines and flooding certain areas.

I don't even remember that scene. Oh well. I liked FC for the fact that Darkseid became scary again as well.

(although I really think we could've held off using Darkseid for a few more years, and instead, made the villain the evil vampiric Monitor all along. I don't know, that would've worked better for me. YMMV)

I love it. Darkseid gets the same joy from spoiling a wedding as he does from murdering the Earth. He is my favorite supervillian.

Twice married, as it turns out. Once, to Suli, which produced Kalibak (Suli was killed by Ma Darkseid's machinations), once to Tigra, which produced Orion (Big D had them both banished)

Holy Shit, Darkseid has a mom?!

"Lil Darkseid did you commit genocide again?"

"Hey mom, Anti Life justifies my fun!"

I thought it was funny that he had a stupid name as a child (Uxas).

Heggra, his mother, only gave him the name so that she could listen to other kids point and say "He's Uxas" (Say it out loud a couple of times), and then giggle maniacally.

*begins giggling maniacally*

But here's a hint, don't do it when your family is in the room.

According to Kirby, Darkseid was always called Darkseid. If someone else decided to retcon that, just retcon them right back.

(One of my big pet peeves here is when youngsters confuse non-Kirby stuff with Kirby stuff, or worse still, complain about Kirby getting his own creations wrong.)

I was joking about this:

I'm not funny, I know...

Buddy, when The Source says this wedding's happening, you'd better fucking believe that shit is going down!

Okay, so using a death-trap in generic is chronic genre blindness, but how stupid do you have to be to use one on Scott Free?

I'm also amused by the comment "He fights like a para-demon!" He fights like a crappy mass-produced mook?

It no worse then having someone saying that Scott's costume reminded them of Nacho Libre. >

I love how PHILOSOPHICAL Darkseid is here. 'Oh, well, so I didn't wreck their wedding completely - but I did a little bit! Evil has been done here today - by me - and that gives Darkseid great joy! HAHAHAHAHAHA! Zen, baby.'
