ITT: Scenes/moments/pages that made you fall in love with a character
Fuck that was a good scene. This and the battle against Lex/Brainiac was what made me fall in love with Wally West Flash.
Wonder Woman taking on Black Canary, Huntress, Hawkgirl, and Vixen all at once in that one JLU episode. Shit was fucking based.
Even if she were under mind control, I had no idea WW could be such a badass fighter man. And it was a well-animated, well-choreographed fight scene too. Plus it gave me more respect for the others to, especially Vixen.
Shit nigga, just watch it:
Batrok is up there with Dr. Doom and Thanos for my favourite comic villains.
I've always had a weak spot for characters like Hawkeye, Frank Castle, and Batrok who aren't enhanced beyond normal human abilities, they just train hard to be good enough. Because of that I find they're more relatable and their humanist cynicism is a welcome relief to the ideals of lofty Übermensches in spandex.
It doesn't really make sense. Why can't people still be motivated to reach their personal potential just because an alien is on the planet?
Why doesn't he do the things he says he can do to be an inspiration for them?
Superman saves people from falling off towers, but Lex could end disease and save countless lives. He acts like only one man can ever be in the news or idolized ever. It's not like there is some conspiracy the media is being controlled by some secret alien menace.
You know, that makes me realize how much Luthor would hate Dragon Ball. Like, think, story is supposedly about practicing and overcoming your limits - but that's bull, because all the REAL important battlers are Saiyans or androids or something like that, and can reach power way beyond what humans are capable of! Krillin or Yamcha could never even try to be something as powerful as them. So what Dragon Ball is really about? Knowing your place and letting the REAL powerful people do all the job? Like, one scene where Mr Satan urges people to give power to the Goku isn't him being useful, in fact it just is perfect exemplification of the idea of "usefulness" human characters have in DBZ.
Luthor would hate the fuck out of this. Would probably love Gurren Lagann though.
>Which brings us to another philosophical question - is discussing /co/ characters /a/ taste, material for /co/?
Pic related is a good argument. As it is now humans are always striving for improvement. In scientific fields, in moral ways, etc. But if we ever saw someone with godlike abilities and near-perfect moral standing, we'll realize there's no way that any individual can reach that. Right now we have no limit, no cap because we don't know what we're capable of. If we're shown something we can't be why strive to get there?
>But if we ever saw someone with godlike abilities and near-perfect moral standing, we'll realize there's no way that any individual can reach that.
Except that's completely untrue. Superman is powerful, yes, but there are plenty of human characters in the DC Universe that have continued to strive to better themselves and do great things. Luthor is just looking for an excuse, a flimsy justification for why he hasn't done everything he says he could do. He's not looking out for humanity's best interests, he's a man obsessed with defeating the only other being that could potentially take the spotlight off of his own accomplishments.
This fucking page is what convinced me that Deadpool is great
It's kinda really cheesy but come on, it's Deadpool we talk about
Wouldn't the exact opposite be true? We strive for more but we also have no idea what's truly possible. Superman's existence shows that that much power is obtainable so we could delve into genetics to try to recreate it.
Time travel looks like it's probably completely impossible but if a time traveler appeared people would swarm into temporal research.
I loved Batroc explaining WHY he was worth a $100k for 5 minutes worth of body guard work. He does one service that nobody else can do for that precise amount of cash and he KNOWS he will never be as tough as Captain America. But he can keep Cap really fucking busy for 5 minutes, and thats what you pay for. Yea Batroc's one issue special elevated him in my eyes to serious underdog status.
But if he did those things, wouldn't be be exactly what he claims superman is? No one else can do what Lex does. He's superhuman. He sees other people the way he claims superman does. Lex just projects his own faults onto superman
episode 47 Comfort and Joy:
-- GL and Hawkgirl starts a bar fight.
-- Flash and Ultra-Humanite (this line makes me laugh: "you hit me first")
-- (Christmas with the Kents) Superman and J'onn
[Comicbook] Justice League: Unlimited #28
Wally's gift, Bruce's reaction, Wally's reward
Every single Deadpool appearance in this comic was great. Reading it felt great after going through the dissapointment that was Waypool
A bit late, but you forget to post the page after that.
Lex is full of shit.
This is a nice scene. I'll never forgive MoS for what they did to the Kents.
Hitman and Tommy had a lot of great moments but this is what made me love the the book.
I feel Darkseid needs more of this. More random turning up in places, apparently having done good deeds to people who have no idea who he is, to the sheer terror of those people in the know.
Here's the (hard to find) full episode:
Just saw that there are also other JLU episodes on the site.
Reminds me of a story:
The first Krispy Kreme in our area was opening up and a line started forming. The newspaper had an article about the PD sending units to guard the donut store and ensure the folks remained peaceful. To which a co-worker of mine (who is a retired cop) snickered and noted: "Yeah! They're thre to guard the store; and not *steal* the first spot in the line".
>The only thing Officer Rolly Polly there knows how to patrol is a donut store.
The page from Geoff Johns JSA where Wildcat takes on the whole injustice society in the base. Also, did anyone find it really fucking retarded Mr. Terrific modeled the base's computer with a supervillain's mind?
This page is why Captain Marvel is my favorite.
This scene really made me love MAX Bullseye, as well as the notepad scene. He's just such an utter fucking psycho it's hilarious. There's no reasoning with him, no bribing him, no scaring him, no nothing. Talk about a villain.
My nigga, you've never read Shazam! Power of Hope? Basically Billy spends a week hanging with some sick kids in a hospital. I'd storytime it, but I'm afraid it might of the image limit with other people posting.
