Huh?

I feel like a lost pet finding service would be more than lucrative enough to cover the living expenses of five aliens.
>>
>>89552617
An algorithm is a self contained program designed for specific purposes, Dokk created one to predict the actions of domesticated animals when they find themselves separated from their familes
>>
>>89552652
I feel like having a shitload of gold and being totally self-sufficient is more than enough
>>
>>89552740
I feel like having enough gold for ten lifetimes from an entirely foreign source would have percussion. Or maybe not used sparingly five gay aliens expenses probably isn't enough to harmfully impact anything.

>>89552617
They wanted the benefits of living on Earth, but were not interested in bettering it.
>>
>>89552718
But what would be the variables needed for it to work?
>>
>>89553436
Pretty sure that the people who lost their pets disagree.
>>
>>89552824
yeah but the only reason gold is valuable on EArth is because it's rare. Introducing more of it from outside the planet would cause it to be less valuable especially if it became public knowledge that aliens had brought a bunch to earth.
>>
>>89553685
DC Humans need to stop being faggots and realize they are in a wider universe, and that they have more than enough super scientists to provide Earth with galactic travel
>>
>>89553730
Barring some individuals (like Superman, Martian Manhunter and other heroes) most aliens in the DCU are huge fucking douchebags.
>>
>>89553573
Why? So you can steal their tech and kick them off earth but still find Fido? Facist.

Sounds pretty fucking American to me. Most people just do their job to make money and Fuck everyone else. We'll give to charity occasionally, but genuinely altruistic people are very rare and the egocentric culture of America ain't helping.

As long as they keep their radios down and don't litter I wouldn't mind living next to Dokk and his bros.
>>

>genuinely altruistic people are very rare and the egocentric culture of America ain't helping.
Then this was the point Superman was making here. Its a pretty common message too.

MAKE the world a better place.

>>89552617

weirdest part is supes acting flustered about illegal immigration, seems way out of character
>>
>>89553920
Problem is that metaphor also gets dragged into an immigration debate. Which is were Supes comes off like a pompous ass for trying to tell other aliens who weren't hurting anyone that they needed to leave.

>How come you guys don't have invincible God powers and spend all your time saving the world like I do?
>>
>>89553974
I mean he IS from Kansas.
>>
>>89553842
Fine. Fuck them. I don't need their algorithm. I will make my own lost-pet-finding algorithm, and it will be the best pet finding algorithm of the galaxy! Because it will be 100%, genuine Earth-made, to prove that we don't need extraterrestrial products in this planet!
>>
>>89554021

yeah sure but why is he complaining about it?

IT just comes off weird, like OH GOSH LITTLE BLUE MANLETS WHY DO YOU HAVE DOP BOTHER ME NOW IN THIS MOMENT IN TIME.

Seems like a jimmy olsen or support character line, supes should just be there to help. I duno, it seems really off to me.
>>
>>89554010
Well more do your bit.
Also STOP FUCKING UP THE PRICE OF OUR GOLD!
>>
>>89554101
Oh so its alright when the FIVE JEW BANKERS do it...
>>
>>89554010
He didn't tell them to leave.

He DID threaten to expose them if they didn't use their tech to help a dying man. This speaks to the idea of having the responsibility to help when you are more than capable of it.
>>
>>89554157
Like someone having a miracle cure, but keeps it for themselves, then justifies that they are not taking anything away either.
>>
>>89553436
If they use their gold to pay for goods and services then they are bettering it. Not everyone needs to cure cancer.
>>
>>89554066
Blame the writer?

A character is only as good as the person who writes them.

>>89554239
I suppose...
>>
>>89554239
But using extraterrestrial gold doesn't better the economy.
Isn't it basically tantamount to using counterfeit bills?
>>
>>89554240

I will sir, thank you. Honestly I think I get what is bugging me, maybe I'm missing context but it almost comes off as supes complaining he has to save people again. Like rolling his eyes then diving down to save Lois from falling again.

I duno, is this some weird preqeul to injustice when he is starting to get sick of everyone's shit?
>>
>>89554239
How do they deal with taxes and audits?

And when dealing with gold, dealers need to confirm it's source.

There's some economic fuckery afoot.
>>
>>89554309
No. Gold has intrinsic value, it's not like fiat currency. Unless they are throwing around so much gold that they depress that value, there would be no negative effects.
>>
>>89554339
>How do they deal with taxes and audits?

They would exchange their gold for local currency.

>And when dealing with gold, dealers need to confirm it's source.

Why would this be a problem? Do they have to live in secret for some reason? The source is outer space.
>>
>>89553886
>Sounds American
And in Europe they'd try to get on welfare or work as little as possible as soon as they could, then protest, beat, and kill anyone that threatened their convenient little lives even a little. Oh they don't give to charity but they'll vote so others certainly will.

So yeah, these guys sound pretty American.
>>
I'd love an entire series set in the DCU focusing on situations like this that stem from Earth now being a planet on the galactic stage.
>>
Lex Luthor is not a villain. He's just trying to make Superman apply for a green card made of kryptonite.
>>
>>89554414
>Why would this be a problem?
This is a legal issue. Dealers are required to confirm where the gold came from.
Is it a known source? Has claim been made and confirmed? Is it stolen?

Imagine you find suddenly find gold somewhere. You have to prove to the government that it is yours to claim, and the location is your source of income. Otherwise it's sketchy as hell.

Sure you could go to the black market, but you'd end up with more problems and things to explain, like source of income. Audits are a bitch, man.
>>
>>89554157
Pretty sure that Superman and his friends have plenty of alien tech that they doesn't share to make the world a better place.

Can they not live openly as aliens and say "I got this gold from gleebleborp"? I doubt anyone would question that. They are literally aliens, after all.
>>
>>89554309
No, gold is gold, maybe they'd wreck the market if they injected it all at once but slowly selling it does nothing
>>
>>89552824
>would have percussion.

Are we talking like John Bonham or Gene Krupa?
>>
>>89554328
No it was from Grounded, the part where it was written by JMS.

>I duno, is this some weird preqeul to injustice when he is starting to get sick of everyone's shit?

I wonder if it could be possible to remove any references to Luthor being evil in the JMS parts of Grounded and see if it would fit in with Injustice Regime universe (where Luthor wasn't evil).
>>

See >>89552617
>Could possible have picked a worse time to immigrate here illegally...?

Earth just had war with New Krypton, so exposing themselves as aliens would not have been feasible at the moment.

>>89554157
>He DID threaten to expose them if they didn't use their tech to help a dying man.

This just gets more complicated.
>>
>>89553974
It is. This arc is considered one of the worst Superman stories ever made.
>>
Can someone tl;dr the situation? Who are the blue guys, why are they on Earth, what do they want?
>>
>>89554713
They don't want to conquer Earth, they just want to fill their girth.
>>
>Use space gold to buy land in the middle of fucking nowhere
>Do their "self sufficient" thing

I'm not seeing the problem. If the aliens are self-sufficient and bought their land fair and square then there is no issue.

It does raise the question of whether or not Superman paid for that plot of land that he built his breathtaking crystal palace on, though.
>>
>>89554713
Space Illegal Immigrants who just want to be left alone, but Superman thinks part of living on Earth means being part of the community.

This is taking place while he's walking across america because of reasons, and refusing to use his superpowers or some junk.
>>
>>89553730

>#Not all Dominators.
>>
>>89554835
He's right about them being illegal, though. They wanted to settle in the US, I assume? They should have picked some uninhabited island in international waters where they could create a narcotics and child porn empire.
>>
>>89554239
Exactly. Gold isn't just for jewelry and shit, it's used in all kinds of technology. They'd be furthering the cause of human advancement just by buying stuff.
>>
>>89554969

that would but into the CIA's gig tho

>>89554833
Does anyone own the land of the Antarctic outback?
>>
>>89555071

According to google, it's divided up between 12 different countries
>>
>>89554044
I know your tricks, old friend. You'll just kidnap those pets and 'find' them for a convenient fee. Well, not this time. I found them, 20 minutes ago.
