Was noting some old comics of Icon and remembered how the guy's a Lawyer. It had slipped my mind and it got me thinking.

As far as I know, DC does not have any guys who are Lawyer Superheroes active in the front of the company right now. They still have interest in the Dakotaverse (Static still being in YJ season 3 confirms this to me), even if somethings up with having them in the comics right now.

Then again, they'd brought back a lot of obscure characters in Rebirth issues so whose to say the Dakota heroes aren't behind the non Midighter/Apollo Wildstorm heroes not in Ellis's toolbox.

So, assuming that the Dakota issues are smoothed out and the guy comes back, perhaps an ongoing that explores his legal side and hero side could be interesting. And given that Daredevil and She Hulk both have writers who implement these elements the same way Flash Rebirth has a writer who knows crime dramas, perhaps tapping one fo them to write him could create a ongoing with a decent life span to it.

But who'd write him? I'd first suggest Mark Waid because I like his Daredevil work and he has worked with Superman before so he can cover the power level, but he seems pretty tied up in Marvel at the moment. Any of the writers of the guy free at the moment?

Not nearly as bad as in other mediums. I question his use in the magical bits of the series over Wonder Woman but that is about it.

They are cool in their own ways: one is the villain of nightmares and the other the leader of hope.

If the Inhumans somehow pull off a 'we could have avoided this', I am avoiding the internet for a few days.

Still since most of them are off in space after this event, I feel the Mutants will have some measure of win, more than AvX gave them.

I can't help but wonder if the 'official mutants are bad in the Inhuman conflict but we all side with them' thing is intended.

Ever since AvX and especially with IvX, are the writers giving subtle efforts along the lines of 'we think the Inhumans who aren't Kamala suck but Perlmutter will make us lick goats if we are blatant on it'?

@ursaber: I wonder if it would be a scenario like this if they did try though?


Internet: What?! They want Chris Evans to play Captain America? He can't do it, it's wrong! The movie's going to fail.

This single page gave me more respect for the guy than I've felt in years.

Given that movies tend to do the characters more justice than the comics much of the time, do you think that we'll see the MCU Jameson?

Amazing didn't tackle the guy beyond a text cameo (one that I remember rather vivedly), but will the MCU tackle him? I mean, if they made a Raccoon with guns the star of the film and pulled off 4 billion dollar+ hits surely they can find someone who can be sufficiently hammy as to replace the original JJJ?

I have a fanfiction idea where either one of them ends up in the Marvel Universe in the aftermath of Civil War 2 and get ideas for working to take the world over.

How far could they get without going into Identity!Deathstroke or Cry!Prometheus territory? This is assuming they are being as intelligent as they can be and don't start their plans by going up to Peter Parker and declaring their intent to take over the world.

For all we might complain about this event, it feels a hell of a lot more natural than trying to imagine anything like this occurring in DC.

Trinity War did not break out into giant fights. There was some basic hero confrontation, but after the first major one it quickly changed paces to looking into the cause, and later fights were caused by Pandora's box.

The Titans teen or not, the Justice League, the Justice Society, they just seem so much less likely to break into a fight than the Avengers and X-Men did.


Heck even the Fantastic Four getting into a fight with the other teams feels more likely.


Is that just me, or do you feel it to? And if so, why do you think the teams at Marvel seem a lot more apart than the DC ones?
