Oh, man, what a perfect start to the weekend!! Sunny, mild, a huge pile of comics to read...why, absolutely nothing can bring me down!!
Well, of course young Bruce Wayne is a little bit gloomy.
Still, that's not gonna bring me down!! The Justice League is finally fully assembled (see what I did there?), and it's time for some grand super-hero style fun!!
You know, getting picked last for the basketball team isn't really the worst trauma in the world, so when Geoff Johns and Jim Lee seem to equate that childhood tragedy with Bruce Wayne's...I hope Batman punches them. Plus, really, do we need a Superman who has had an unhappy childhood?
(Then again, those two panels of Clark Kent's youth are more than we've had from every other nu52 book combined so far, so maybe we shouldn't kvetch...)
All righty, then, let's press on with modern super-heroic glee!!
Wait, you guys have already covered this part of Vic's life to death. Really, you got nothing else?
I wish the Leaguers could see and comment on each others' "I've had a hard life" flashbacks:
VIC: Man up, Clark. At least your parents came to see your sporting events!
BRUCE: At least you have a dad, Victor. Mine's dead.
CLARK: Shut up, Mr. "No Favorite Color." You were never picked last for anything.
Look, it's a glorious day, and I'm not going to let the "everyone in the JL had childhood issues that motivate their lives as heroes" theme get me down!! Besides, every Leaguer can't have had childhood trauma, right? Right??
Oh, well...so much for the happy cheerful day...anyone have some Prozac?
