I'd say I have to agree with Mike here. The Boys is interesting, but if you like our comics, there's NO guarantee you'll like The Boys. It's basically a "What if the JLA were a bunch of sex-maniac assholes". It's also pretty graphic and gross, stopping short of...well nothing. It actually reminds me a a lot of Supreme Power, except that Supreme Power is something you don't have to be ashamed to own.
I guess if I'm going to dismiss Scott's recommendations, I would have to offer Young Justice, and Joe Kelly's run on Deadpool if you like our brand of humor. I don't know where you'll be able to find them, as neither has been TPBed beyond the first 6 issues...but they're worth it. (complete collections pop up on ebay every now and then)
As to the strip above, a friend of ours actually commented that we characterized Magneto perfectly, since he's always coming up with some hair brained scheme. I mean if he really was the master of magnetism...couldn't he just move a car out of a parking spot? I guess if you're going to ask inane questions like that, then it would be fair to ask why can't Superman just always fly around the Earth and turn back time?
That was secretly a test please award yourself the folloiwng points based on your reaction to the above statement.
Wow, you are right. Superman should be invincible.
You are confusing movie Superman with comic Superman. The movie is not comic-canon. Even Earth-2 Superman who is uber powerful, is no longer alive and couldn't do that. (unless of course Superboy-Prime punched time, and merged movie-canon with comic-canon)
If you scored 1 point, you are a normal human being. If you scored 2 points, you are a huge comic nerd....Yes I am aware that it is more desirable to have a smaller score. I am also aware that I would have scored a 2.
