I’m going to address the two ton elephant in the fandom: the fan interpretation of Dick Grayson. So yeah, I’m basically going to say out loud what half of you are thinking and what the other half of you are ignorant of.
Dick Grayson is not an eternally happy-go-lucky, trusting, or friendly guy. There, I said it. Dick has flaws. Bring on the pitchforks, fandom, I’ll fight you to the death. I’m glad that Dick Grayson is such a popular character, but the fact that so many people characterize him wrong drives me crazy. Yes. You should love Dick Grayson. You should also make sure you’re loving Dick Grayson for the right reasons.
Journey Into Mystery #85
Trendsetter Loki Laufeyson single-handedly brings the zoot suit back.
I’m realizing I follow comics I don’t read in the same way that some people keep up with celebrities
"Oh, I hear Wolverine’s dead again. Wonder how long that will last."
"So…Nightwing’s a secret agent?"
"Looks like Guy Gardner has a beard now. I don’t like it."
RUSSIAN FRIENDSHIP IS INCREDIBLE
"Don’t worry, gents. We buried it for you."
he became deaf in Hawkeye v1 #4
which lasted around 15 years (in which there were only about 10 references to his hearing loss- i could post those panels if you want)
until, after some extreme 90s alt-universe event where all the heroes ended up dead,
the “heroes reborn” universe, where the panel above is from
he was revived in 1998 with completely restored hearing
it’s shown that he knows sign language when she-hulk attempts to unsubtly warn a revived hawkeye (after he died in avengers disassembled, not heroes reborn) of his impending doom
but he was napping in the jury
now, clint’s been deafened again in #15 of the current run of hawkeye
and it seems it’s being retconned that clint had actually been deaf for a time in childhood, before he sacrificed his hearing in hawkeye v1
"why is second son the way that he is"
"is it because of me"
"is it because he died a little bit once"
mysteriously gets a “yes it is, bruce, man the fuck up” message
wonders how long oracle has been spying on his searches
Cover commission homage to The Mighty Thor 147 by MC Wyman
I have wrestled dragons with my bare hands. Slain wolves the size of longboats. I have fought in more battles than most gods twice my age. So tell me… How much more worthy must I be?
