Went and saw Jurassic Park 3D this weekend (I have never seen it in theaters and it was a blast)
Thought of how different the movie could seem from another perspective.
wait is this not the plot of the movie??
“am i not beautiful? and terrible? do you not fear me? you should.”
TRIGGER WARNING for what seems an awful lot like anti gay violence. This was a short backup story from WF #302, published in 1984, so it’s very possible that it comments on that in a roundabout, 80s way.
After a mission, Batman wanted to have lunch and a heart to heart with Superman, so they find a bar.
However, some asshole patrons of the bar have a problem with their tender handtouching.
But since this is taking place shortly after Superman and Batman made up after their infamous breakup, Batman won’t let them interrupt his avalanche of mushy feelings he needs to tell Superman because OMG it’s been like THREE ISSUES since he told him how much he means to him.
And when they’re done with the bullies, they go home to eat Alfred’s awesome food.
This is the greatest thing I have ever seen.
This isn’t about trying to prove anything to anyone, not anymore… This isn’t about me chasing after some boy… This isn’t about having hope… about me saving the one person who’s ever given a real crap about me. This is about keeping promises, about being a hero. My name? Stephanie Brown— I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again—

There wasn’t much to being a super hero. It was all about finding yourself in a position where you’re the only one around who can save the day. Do you freak out and walk away? Or do you grit your teeth and walk into hell if that’s what it takes? If risking your life could save the lives of everyone else, what would you do?

While I on vacation this week I have a series of guest posts from readers, bloggers and other writers. This guest post is by Josie Campbell whose name you may recognize from her work writing news at Comic Book Resources. Josie is writing on the importance of Wonder Woman. It’s a terrific essay and I ask that you read the whole thing. Her thoughts follow,
Of all the superheroes in all the world there is only one, in my eyes, who has fundamentally changed our culture as a whole — and it ain’t Superman, Batman, Spider-Man or any of the other superlative-Men who get trotted out in that capacity.
That superhero is Wonder Woman.
Thinking about how, if Thor was a woman, the movie never would have been made because her origin story would have been deemed “too complicated.”
