This Week in Panels: Week 225

January 13th, 2014 by | Tags: , , , ,

It’s a day late, but better late than never, I guess. It’s the Gavin’s Burning the Candle at More Ends Than Candles Actually Have Edition of This Week in Panels. Huge batch this time around with help from Matlock and Gaijin Dan.

Great week in terms of digital comics. Deadpool: The Gauntlet came out, they’re building to the release of the Down Set Fight! graphic novel via releasing pieces of it in digital form. And I’m a happy guy because the second season of Injustice just started! Nobody cares about the game anymore, but whatever! The comic is still great!

Recently at Den of Geek US, I wrote a piece on 11 Comics That Act as Movie Sequels. That one took me a long time to finish due to the research. Which reminds me, some of that research will find its way here in a day or so. But now, let’s panel up.

  1. Injustice today features the introduction of an intriguing concept: a woman who has literally never read a history book. ‘Cause I’m fairly certain that by being situationally willing to flip the hell out and kill someone on less than ideologically pure grounds, Clark finally proved he was a fairly typical human.
    Also, Detective Comics 27 produces precious wisdom that will never be heeded.


  2. @Drakyn: That’s not what her point is. She’s calling him out on the same, “Why don’t you put the whole world in a bottle?” mentality from Red Son. He’s acting like we’re his pets and we have to do what he says because he knows better when the real Superman knows to let humanity figure things out for themselves, but catch them when they’re falling.


  3. @Gavok: Yeah, but disregarding less powerful people as being ants beneath you who you should manipulate for their own good is ALSO fairly common human behavior that doesn’t have anything to do with whether or not you’re from Krypton, Kansas, or Cameroon. The language used here puts humanity on a pedestal: before he was an almost completely unnatural example of virtue in nearly every way, and that was considered so human he ‘fooled’ them, because he was ‘like us.’ Now that he’s sliding into typically human vices and views of the powerful (albeit with a grossly magnified set of personal capabilities), he’s inhuman.


  4. We Idealise the best of humanity and otherise the parts we don’t like.

    I.e acting against the interests of humanity = inhumane


  5. here’s a question how long until we get the chapter where scorpion beats up Trigon, like kinda wonder how they going to explain a guy who normally a puppet of gods winning a match against a ruler of one… did Scorpion got his hands on those Super-Pills? Also Gavok http://www.4thletter.net/sfmk/sethsub.jpg that lady in the bottom right seems to be the fifth character capcom been alluding to… though I kinda wish for Daniel Bryan from that middle picture or Sub Zero given it’s the First issue of the series.


  6. oh wait did I say bottom right?! I mean Bottom Left… though Who knows the gender on the person in the right.
