Why Deacon Blackfire Mattered

I heard Blackfire being mentioned recently. Which is a pretty big deal if it's him. I hope they aren't retconning this as his first time crossing Batmans' path. Mainly because it was one of the most important Jason Todd stories when he was a Robin. But the mythos set up in Batman The Cult are pretty compelling and I hate for any of it to be lost in a relaunched origin for the character.

SPOILERS of course for Batman The Cult.

Superdickery Day 23: Ruining Jimmys' love life

Okay I have no idea what the context is but it looks like Superman is intentionally giving people the impression he's Jimmys' lover. Why? Well why does he do anything? You gotta love Jimmys' fake enthusiasm as he realizes the awkward position he's in now.

Superdickery Day 22: Calling his his girlfriends stupid for something no one else figures out

I mean it's not like they were the only ones fooled by the glasses thing. Lex Luthor is supposed to be a genius and even he doesn't know. (*1) And Jimmy Olsen is his biggest fan. Although this might explain why Clarks' pissy all the time--he's sick of all the dumb people on Earth.

*1 Actually there was a non-Silver Age story that had Luthor figure it out but he dismissed it because the idea was too ridiculous.

July Solicits AND September Solicits

Too bad we don't have covers for September but at least we have an idea.

Superdickery Day 21: Won't even try to save Jimmy

I like how Superman refuses to even attempt to help because he's more concerned about himself. Nevermind his powers it's just not worth the risk.

DCC decides to do Justice League Dark

They start with Zatanna and Constantine. I don't plan on getting any of the figures so far but it's good to see their expanding.

Superdickery Day 20: Superboy becomes Hitler?

Either that or he really likes screwing with people's heads. ...It's him screwing with them isn't it?
