All caught up! Trenchcoat, I would've thought that after defeating the Red Skull within you mind in order to break free of the coma, you'd come back with at least a bit more respect for the tinier chested women of the world. Poor, poor Zoe. I'm a small tit snubber as well, but I've softened a bit.
All caught up! As everyone should be, since I'm keeping the show to a mere weekly schedule for now. The one thing about big-tittied whores is just how bitchy they all are. Uh...except for Vixen, of course.And at least I'm not as bad as Starhawk, who just flat-out rejects any bitch with less than a "B" cup.
Basically, the deal with Plastic Man and the multiple earths is this: DC never really had a company-wide plan saying "everyone must treat this character as being from this earth". So you'd have some writers putting characters on one earth, some putting them on another, some trying to explain away the others, and some completely ignoring the multiple earths and just putting the characters in the story whether they made sense or not.Plastic Man is one of those. He had several appearances that you might want to call Earth-1 but where the writer didn't really think it through.Aside from that problem, Plastic Man has another problem which affected most of the Quality heroes: When they reappeared in modern times they were shown as being from Earth-X. When Roy Thomas started All-Star Squadron, his original idea was that there were versions of the Quality characters on more than one Earth just like there was a Superman and Batman on more than one Earth. Later he changed his mind and wrote a story where all the Quality heroes moved from one earth to another to explain why they were on Earth X.As for Miss America, there was more than one character in the Golden Age, one from Quality and one from Marvel. The Quality one did become public domain, but that is not the reason why Marvel has one. (It's an obvious idea for someone to come up with independently. The Quality Miss America had the power to transform objects. In the Golden Age it did come from the Statue of Liberty but this got retconned in Young All-Stars to having gotten the powers from a government experiment.
All that is exactly why I hate DC and their multiple Earths. On a related note, I like the Kyle Baker version of Plastic Man; y'know, the one who was actually funny.At this point, most DC ongoing tiles suck, except for Wonder Woman, when Azzarello's on his game.And I'm not counting Astro City 'cause technically, that's a Vertigo book.Next: A DC series that was so good, they cancelled it multiple times...
I should had remembered, Miss America got her powers from the spirit of the Statue of Liberty. It's similar to Liberty Belle who got her powers from the Liberty Bell. Didn't know they retconned her origins.I liked the multiple Earths, it help solve the problem of who were those heroes from the 1940's. What was the problem with Plasticman? Adventure Comics, he was the present Earth-1 Plasticman with Woozy sidekick. In All Star Squadron, he was Earth-2 Plasticman, FBI.
Plastic Man would've been the oddest FBI agent this side of Twin Peaks' Agent Cooper.
