Good evening owls of /co/,
You might ask, can it get worse than last night?
Previous thread in the archives: >>77932518
Drinking game: shot for every would-be badass cliche that comes out of Slade's mouth, management not responsible for any liver damage resulting
Deepest realization last night: sadness that no one seems to write a "continuity heavy ultra violent fuckfest" and make it GOOD
Well if you're writing a ultra violent fuckfest, you kind of have to make it OUT of continuity since most characters are either going to be dead or hilariously out of character by the end of it.
Or push the reset button, that can always be fun!
Ray is VERY SAD he is in this comic.
>who want to see a woman incinerate a guy with her vagina
Ray deserves better than this shit.
He also deserved better than Cry for Justice.
At least Brandon Routh is fun in Arrow right now (even though his character is really supposed to be Ted Kord)
Anon who came late to storytime also said, accurately:
>God, this was so awful. I now understand why there are older readers who like Lobdell and Hopeless: compared to this their runs are harmless
Wonderful violent Middy
when is HE going to meet Mera, hmm?
They were tagging a lot of the books that spun out of that status quo with the heading, Krul's shitty Green Arrow was as well
Hey 21JQQQISJ5WAY, do you have an address listed? Doesn't seem to be working.
Roy's getting his rapeface on!
Zealot is obligatory on any ultraviolence team.
Jared is too avoidant for the team, much as I love him.
>Nursery Cryme is the third studio album from the English rock band Genesis, released in November 1971 on Charisma Records.
Christ, that IS a hanging offense.
Isn't Slipknot, like, a nü metal band?
>Sweet Jesus, what am I becoming?
Sadly no one in Editorial stopped to think that.
Is this dude all "I don't care if you kill a few prisoners?"
Okay, this has to be some intentional comedy of misreadings
One guard with a ridiculous trigger like that?
Oh, it's Arkham, the worst-run prison ever, right
Osiris is so off his rocker right now that I think we're supposed to read him as the prison guard sees him.
Even though he was probably right about to end the conversation and walk off.
Roy: I'm high, everything is fun now!
I don't know why but Ray saying that line with such serious determination is cracking me up.
is that Killer Moth? And Dr. Phosphorus, isn't he like cancer from being within five feet of him?
(Sobek ate Osiris. It was pretty shocking.)
Is it just me or is he checking out Slade's pecs?
>A word that means 'fake' in Italian slang and has been mistaken for the military acronym 'fubar' (fucked up beyond all recognition) by kids who like a punk band.
I'm losing it, now
Been chilling around in the Secret Santa thread all day. I think I'm done running contests in there though, I'm about at the end of my budget
and a little burnt out on playing Christmas carols at the moment.
I don't have the faintest idea what Editorial could have been doing through this shitfest.
It was a million times worse when I re-read it after reading Johns' JSA with Black Adam in it.
He could've been redeemed. He could've left it all behind and lived a nice happy life with his family. But no, Johns must have us suffer instead.
>keep bitching that nobody uses the Wonder rogues
>the Finches plan on using the, which will most likely not end well
.... The term "monkey's paw" comes to mind.
Barbara, being an evil archaeologist, is at least hard to fuck up, in theory.
He was probably answering to someone else, but he has a lot to answer for himself, then
or just a standard "don't stick your dick in a walking pile of STDs" joke
I love how Killer Croc is confused about this random kid givin' him guff. Poor bastard.
Incidentally, intelligent swamp gangster Croc is best Croc. Dumb Croc can be funny, but hard to take seriously as an antagonist.
21JQQQISJ5WAY here, d'oh, i fixed it.
Maybe SeeKing could write a decent Slade and Dick plot
may they not have to, any time soon
something will be coming your way
I want someone else to do something with Shadow Thief, but most of all, WHERE IS MARK SHAW
Christ this art
and this BLOOD
Wouldn't this be improved by being Batman: Odyssey?
Oh my god, it's evil pedo Willie Nelson
this is not fucking okay
>He also deserved better than Cry for Justice.
He also deserved better than Countdown. I don't really know much about Ray or the Atom in general, but apparently the universe hates him
I have not. My brain might genuinely explode.
Bestwatch makes me sad because none of its good parts are presently in play, either
I've always been partial to describing her as evil Lara Croft, but Belloq with tits works too.
She did start by trying to steal the Lasso after all.
>There is nothing you can acquire that I cannot take away.
Oh yeah, it's just that the sustained attention that storytiming takes, it's the kind of thing where brain is all TOO MUCH BEEP BOOP
Indiana Jones (or Lara Croft, or Uncharted...) with Wonder Woman would be pretty fun. Give her a chance to bounce off of different cultures and histories rather than just being in America all the time.
Bring back Amy, dammit!
OH, in the ANAD Betting Pool:
Red Wolf, how many issues, considering the diversity press online panned it. 6?
It's a goddamn shame she hasn't shown up in anything recently, but DC seems to have abandoned developing most of their magic side of things ever since Trinity of Sin failed, and now Gotham by Midnight is dead too.
Speaking of things DC will never follow up on WHERE'S MY GODDAMN BLACK AND BLUE ONGOING, DIDIO.
Anon who asked last thread how bad this is for Osiris:
because you're genre-savvy, Ray. And you survived Countdown.
Maybe Clayface is like Stealth, and you can get high off him
But Roy's not on heroin, he's on little kids right now
This COULDN'T be the plot of "Am I still an okay guy if I kill that helpless villain", could it?
maybe he finally learned not to stick his dick in crazy
People say the Joker is just pointless edge, and that's usually how stories with him go nowadays but there's nothing about him that fundamentally requires him to be edgy. Zsasz very core and concept as a character is pointless edge that just makes Batman look retarded for not killing.
Originally cool then overhyped and debased?
These Royfaces are pretty amazing
how are you owls?
I mean, there's a story where he gets thrown around by Vader but there's also one where he gets into a lightsaber battle with him and survives, so it kinda evens out.
Those boxes fading to white are a horrible design choice
Yes there are quite a few reaction images to be made with storytime and the last
okay, I actually laughed at this one
>implying it's possible to survive as a prison guard at Arkham for eight years
I put up with a lot of obvious bullshit this run, but that's more of a butchery of the universe than I can stomach. I'm out.
>how are you owls?
Doing fine. This is the first "Owls" storytime I've been in (Besides the first set of issues of this). Just eating some pulled pork and listening to the Bubblegum Crisis OST
There's an Ink one-shot/mini/something that came before this and after Final Crisis that we seem to have missed, but, well
So Ryan was killed by a sea cucumber?
The drinking game turned out to be a little meaner than I'd thought it would be
Time for more voyeurism!
Wiki sez yes, but also in OT
>The biblical phrase "an eye for an eye" in Exodus and Leviticus (עין תחת עין, ayin tachat ayin) literally means 'an eye in place of an eye' while a slightly different phrase (עַיִן בְּעַיִן שֵׁן בְּשֵׁן, literally "eye for an eye; tooth for a tooth") is used another passage (in Deuteronomy) of the Jewish Bible, specifically, in the first of its three subdivisions, the Torah. For example, a passage in Leviticus states, "And a man who injures his countryman -- as he has done, so it shall be done to him [namely,] fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. Just as he has injured a person, so it shall be done to him." (Lev. 24:19–21)
Sure looks that way!
I mean, holy shit, what the fuck Osiris
I'm not Judge, but I suspect that gun is some applied bullshit.
(Judge, I suspect is all NOT READING THIS AGAIN, sane person that he is)
>In Isis' name.
OH! I just realized who Osiris reminds me of. Mithos from Tales of Symphonia. It's only a matter of time til the kid founds some insane religion around his sister.
>Mithos from Tales of Symphonia. It's only a matter of time til the kid founds some insane religion around his sister.
Oh fuck you're right. Jesus christ even his voice fits Osiris.
All we need is art of him in that mech that Mithos is in during his final fight and we're good
I'm surprised a MAX book hasn't gone there
or has it
Here's another candidate for "the reboot really did do some good here", now that it comes up
BTW, we haven't yet hit the stupidest plot in this entire run.
now I wanna ask Hi-Fi about working on this the next time someone pops up in a JL3K1 thread
>All we need is art of him in that mech that Mithos is in during his final fight and we're good
The hell WAS that mech anyway? I mean, it's clearly a combination of those weird minibosses you fight all over Deris Karlan, but... why?
Symbolic enemies are such a headache.
>Symbolic enemies are such a headache.
You'd get a kick out of Persona, or SMT as a whole. From what I've played of that series (Which isn't that much), it's all about the fucking symbolism.
It's fine, anon. This is some shitty comics.
I think they are going for something ala KC in the art here
>it's not going to suck itself.jpg
raise your hand if you are shocked this is gonna involve Slade's kids somehow
this is just begging for some going-to-hell-humor jihadi photoshop, I'm sorry
Time for another drinking game. Take a shot every time someone angsts over their dead/missing kid. Take shots if it's Slade. Down the whole fucking bottle if the current arc revolves around his kids
If you really hate yourself but want to learn something about comics, reading TT from Johns through to this will do it
Wasn't that the last arc Johns did before BN
Maybe because it was the first one I read (Granted it was via trades in a library that didn't have the full collection, but still), but I still like Johns Titans
Johns Titans isn't incompetent, it's just obviously Editorially dictated and racked by unproductive nostalgic mandates
Put you in this comic, my dear.
If we read one more, we can finish this shitfest tomorrow...
this might not be the worst thing I've ever run, either
You are also clearly the goddess of underboob
There's not enough really crazy stupid shit in tonight's issues
But I think this Drago plot might be the dumbest, for the whole mutilation theme going on
Ahhh, look at Dwarfstar, chilling in the hospital
I mean, what else would he be? Death on four legs?
At this point, I'd be totally down for a team up of Roy and Snowflame as they go around the world dishing out drug fueled justice. Maybe get Hourman in on that too (Since he's also drug fueled from what I've heard)
Nicely done, Doris. Heh heh heh!
I approve of this psychological torture of supervillains. Physical torture on the other hand is...
>I'm Ray Palmer. Welcome to pain.
also look at this edgy dude's costume. it's pretty weird and edgy, innit?
Ha ha, letters!
Five issues left! TOmorrow!
I salute everyone who's made it this far.
Fuck this comic and thank you OP. This is certainly getting up there as one of the most painful and edgy comics to read. I really hesitate to call most things edgy, but jesus christ this is just edge incarnate
Gore and Body Horror go together a lot, to be fair.
also, comments like this are why I <3 you all
Did they ever bother to explain how Dwarfstar got out of being amoeba-sized?
I mean he wasn't a scientist or anything, he was just an arsehole who got off on torturing coeds who got given a shrinking belt by an evil organisation and sicced on Choi. Then Choi took his belt and left him microscopic. His story was done and dusted.
