Not a fan of that variant cover. Not at all.
unknownfacts - 1/18/2013, 4:46 PM
The second pic looks like it was drawn by MAD magazine.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 4:53 PM
Aquaman must be out his damn mind, he thinks he can take Diana?



And did Geoff Johns just forget that Superman was there with the them or did he think it wise for Aquaman not to try to take on Superman? I think the latter.

Also, Geoff Johns will always be my favorite writers as long as he continues to make Batman a punching bag. Always prepared for everything, except when you're not.

...THAT COVER!
DioFoRio - 1/18/2013, 5:05 PM
@unknown lol
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 5:09 PM
Anyone else notice that DC turned Diana's pants blue again?
pesmerga44 - 1/18/2013, 5:13 PM
LOL at that variant cover I mean Superman looks a little like a douche, Wonder Woman got some real big lips there, and Aquaman looks like a badly drawn Sylvester Stalone cartoon character. Was this like a competition for under 15 year old kids to draw a cover for a DC comic. If was even that they didn't have a good pool to chose from because I have seen kids that age and younger draw much much better then that.

Nobody touches the Batman! Nobody!
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 5:22 PM
@ MarkV -



Gotta love Geoff Johns.
AnitaDick - 1/18/2013, 5:27 PM
Man, that variant cover sucks! But still Aquaman > Batman hands down!
DioFoRio - 1/18/2013, 5:38 PM
the second cover looks like a cosplay party getting into it at a golden corral.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 5:46 PM
Uh batman was not taken out by aquaman but succumbed to a sneak attack from Orm. Batman is the best super hero there is. Face it.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 5:48 PM
Variant cover is shit BTW!
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 5:49 PM
KnightofSteel did I insult you? No. So watch your mouth you insulate bitch. I'm entitled to my own opinion.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 5:53 PM
@ JayOh -

TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 5:55 PM
KnightofSteel Whatever peon. How does Geoff John's dick taste?

And btw. DC's highest grossing character and considered to he apart of their big 3 with not a single super power. Sounds like you're just a typical hater.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 5:55 PM
Also, Batman wasn't taken out by Aquaman because Diana saved his ass. What was Batman going to do? Fight Aquaman?


Silly Billy. =D
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 5:56 PM
PatriotsSuperguy you damn straight I am [frick]boy.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 5:57 PM
Yes batman would have fought him. Back down would have been the last thing he'd do though we know you woulda
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:01 PM
@ Jayoh - Batman is DC's highest grossing character because Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns made him into Bat-God. He had the appeal of a human with no superpowers, but he could bring down godly beings like Superman, Darkseid and Galactus.

Clearly Geoff Johns has learned that if Batman can do everything, why have superpowered heroes at all? Just let Batman be take care of everything.


Also, he's one of the big three because, thanks to Superman, he was one of the only three superheroes to survive the Congress code of conduct of the 1940s (Notice how the three are all in DC and all have a close relationship with the Big blue Guy?). He's not a member of the big three because he's special, DC just has to make him special and unbeatable or people will wonder why is Batman on the team.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:03 PM
Batman = Most overrated character in comics.

If not the most overrated, he's tie with that idiot Marvel has with the kitty claws.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:05 PM
P.S...I hate Batman, pretty sure KnightofSteel is a fan of Batman...hence the KNIGHT being a part of his name.

I love Geoff Johns.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:06 PM
Who even addressed you, you simple minded dipshit. I stated my opinion and that makes me a "Battard"? Only a lame fanboy stuck in his mothers basement would come up with that. Get off my big black dick hater. @PatriotsSuperGay
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:10 PM
If you guys like each other so much then how bout y'all both get together and jump on John's dick. [frick]ing faggots. @KnightofSteel and @PatriotsSuperGay.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:11 PM
The term is your, not you dumb ass @PatriotsSuperGay
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:12 PM
@FagofSteel*
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:13 PM
I'm no troll but I just don't understand being attacked for my opinion which was aimed at no one. @PatriotsSuperGay started it if anything.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:14 PM




CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:18 PM
@ KnightofSteel - I like how all of them give Superman the "At least he's not stupid" look.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:21 PM
@ KnightofSteel - Yep, I don't actually hate him. He's not my favorite, but I don't hate him.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:22 PM
I'm convinced you two are somewhere in the same room rubbing each others bare asses as you burn batman comics. [frick]ing lames. Your mothers must have been too busy [frick]ing men other than your fathers to teach you speak when spoken to. Get off my and Geoff Johns dick.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:24 PM
I love Geoff Johns writing Batman, I have a buddy who absolutely hates it. I tell him, if DC keeps allowing Frank Miller to write Superman to be such a tool, Geoff Johns can make Batman a punching bag.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:25 PM
@ KnightofSteel - Neither, these people actually believe Batman is an unstoppable force.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:26 PM
Bitch didn't I say I'm no troll. I visit this site daily and post regularly and never bother anyone despite their opinions. So you're not going to attack me for no reason and not expect retaliation.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:27 PM
I'm 22. Live on my own. Have a very attractive girlfriend. Making more money than most people my age and in art school. More than either of you can say I'm sure.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 1/18/2013, 6:29 PM
Fagofsteel your attack was lame and that of a butt hurt batman hater. Which you are. I'm done. Really don't know why I wasted the time on you cattle.
CavEl - 1/18/2013, 6:31 PM
@ JayOh - Yap, yap, yap. Batman gets owned on a regular basis in the DCnU.
