    There’s a sign in the cartoon that says “Victory for Justice”. So, he presumably does know what “V-J” means.

    I’m not sure if you know how to read the entirety of something before commenting though.

    Green Lantern/Green Arrow is for comics what All in the Family is for TV — they took a medium that had been little more than light entertainment before then, and addressed Serious Social Issues.

    Also, at this point in time, both seem really preachy, even if you agree with the message.

    It’s also worth noting that All in the Family was a huge hit; GL/GA was cancelled pretty quickly. (On the other hand, DC Comics was willing to publish the stories because sales on the book were lousy, anyway. They wouldn’t have done a story where Superman discovered Jimmy Olsen was a junkie!)

    You do a grievous insult to the suffering people of North Korea by that remark.

    I’d like to see you say that to someone who has been fortunate enough to escape the hell-hole that the Kims have created. They would certainly explain to you what dictatorship really is, and you would hopefully grow up a little.

    Be careful; Pastis used to be an attorney. He’ll sue you so hard this will become the New Adventures of Viscountess Victoria.

    " The Nielsen ratings dispute your claims, however."

    All Fox’s ratings prove is their success is pandering to a target audience.

    Let me see if I get this straight…

    Over the top: making fun of wild conspiracy theories about plots by the Big Bad Barack to enslave Texans by using Wal-Mart.

    Not over the top: Believing those theories.

    Gotcha…

    There’s two possibilities I see.
    1) The Governor of Texas takes these rumors seriously enough to respond to them.
    2) The Governor of Texas knows the rumors are ludicrous, but is willing actually take action to humor a crackpot faction in Texas that does believe them.

    I’m not sure what’s worse.

    Because when you want you good, solid scientific information, what better source than a site devoted to claiming the world is about to end, just like it has been for two thousand years.

    I’m gonna get nerdy here. DC Comics has an explanation of why Superman didn’t stop the Nazis. Hitler possessed the Spear of Destiny — the spear used to stab Christ during the crucifixion. This allowed him to perform a mystic ritual, and any super-powered being who came into German territory would be mentally controlled by Hitler himself. So, Superman and others fought against German agents on the home front.

    I also remember a story, though I can’t remember if it was a Marvel or DC story. FDR met with a group of superheroes, and said he couldn’t let them win the war for the US, because, to disprove the Nazi’s ideas about the ubermensch, the common soldier had to do it.
