The DCU Has Gone to the Cats

May 27th, 2010 by | Tags: ,

And I love it.

The best thing to emerge from Blackest Night?

Ruffles the Rage Kitty in Green Lantern #54.  I don’t care what he’s doing.  Even burning people alive is hilarious and adorable.

And I confess that my favorite part of Power Girl #12 is the cat.  And Power Girl is an excellent comic.

I even like it when they get kicked.

Rraaoww.  Delightful.

I amend my wishes of the Fourcast #46.  I want a Batgirls Book, a Guaranteed Happy Heroes Book, and a Cat Book.  And if that makes me the lowest common denominator, then, well, fine.  At least I’ll have the numbers behind me.  Come on DC, make a cat book.  Ninety percent of the internet can’t be wrong!

  1. Uh… Esther? I don’t know if I’d be so happy about DC and their use of cats.

  2. @Gavok: Arsenal raping a dead cat?

    I wish I could say I’m surprised at DC printing that, but…

  3. Just like in Wednesday Comics I love the way Amanda Conner draws cats…

  4. The power ring on the tail of Rage-Kitty is what did it for me.

  5. @Gavok: Waffleimages links don’t work outside of SA. You’re gonna have to reupload it elsewhere.

    @Al Loggins: He didn’t rape a cat, he thought it was his daughter.

  6. You forgot the image of Roy beating some junkies with a dead cat this week.

  7. Really, Hal? “Get some Meow Mix, Garfield.” A lifetime of professional super-heroics, and that’s the best line you can come up with? Sheesh. I expect better from you, man.
    Wait… Cry For Justice.
    No I don’t.

  8. @Gavok: I’m going to assume, since the link is broken, that the picture was Batman and Superman playing with a kitten.

    What? You say it was what? I can’t hear you.

  9. IIRC the cat’s name is Dex-Starr, which on anything other than an evil kitty that vomits napalm would be one of the stupidest names in the history of the written language.

    When you give it to an evil kitty that vomits napalm, however, it somehow becomes cool. If it’s not just residula cool bleeding over from the fact that it’s a kitty that vomits napalm*, I gt no clue.

    * Because seriously, “evil kitty that vomits napalm” is just about as cool a villain concept as “undead Nazi made of bees”.

  10. Oh, and because I forgot to mention this before, Power Girl using her heat vision as a laser pointer cat toy is almost ridiculously adorable. I love Amanda Conner’s art so much.

  11. Damnation! That’ll teach me to be lazy.

    @Esther Inglis-Arkell: Here, I’ll post it a second time in the comments because it’s just THAT important.

  12. @Gavok: Still can’t see it. La la la, it’s all Supergirl playing with Streaky. La.

  13. Oh no… Esther. Esther, please you have to answer this question for me. It’s important!

    Do you know who Max Lord is?

  14. @Gavok:Of course. He’s that fun guy in I Can’t Believe It’s Not The Justice League.

  15. @david brothers:

    You wrote: “@Al Loggins: He didn’t rape a cat, he thought it was his daughter.”

    Sadly, in the New DC, that wouldn’t necessarily preclude him from raping the cat. 😉

  16. @Esther Inglis-Arkell: Oh. Huh. I guess we’re just dealing with insanity-based denial and not world-spanning mind control here. Carry on.

  17. Maybe Roy was strung out on the H and just a dead cat, and thought it was a cheeseburger.

  18. Y’know, it sort of looks to me like Roy’s trying to stick the dead cat down the side of his boot.
    I don’t know why. Maybe he’s going to grind it up and use it to cut his cocaine with or something.

  19. Dex-Star is the greatest, love the way Mahnke drew his face at the end of the issue :c00l:

  20. @Esther Inglis-Arkell: Ted Kord and Maxwell Lord

    Best Friends Forever
