Suddenly, Aquaman isn’t useless.

oh my god this is brilliant

OH FUCK

OUTRAGEOUS!

Paging Angela.

This would make Aquaman a way less sucky super hero. 

I don’t think there has ever been a more important comic book-based discussion.

Ever.

Okay. I know it’s popular to make fun of Aquaman, but do people seriously not even read the comics? The dude has ridiculously superhuman strength, that isn’t limited to him being in the water:

Telepathy, even if he suffers from bad one-liners:

As opposed to a guy that’s just wearing a bat costume:

This makes sense to me.

Laura Hudson’s must-read: The Big Sexy Problem with Superheroines and Their ‘Liberated Sexuality’

But this is what comics like this tell me about myself, as a lady: They tell me that I can be beautiful and powerful, but only if I wear as few clothes as possible. They tell me that I can have exciting adventures, as long as I have enormous breasts that I constantly contort to display to the people around me. They tell me I can be sexually adventurous and pursue my physical desires, as long as I do it in ways that feel inauthentic and contrived to appeal to men and kind of creep me out.

18. Tim Burton on Kevin Smith (after Smith jokingly accused Burton of stealing the ending of Planet of the Apes from a Smith comic book):
“Anyone who knows me knows I would never read a comic book. And I would especially never read anything created by Kevin Smith.”

19. Kevin Smith on Tim Burton (in response to “I would never read a comic book”):
“Which, to me, explains fucking Batman.”

Batman: The Movie, 1966

Would Superman Pass the Birther Test? Blawgers discuss Clark Kent’s citizenship, Wolverine’s health insurance, and why Bruce Wayne needs a good lawyer.

Mother Jones:

If you had the ability to shoot plasma from your hands, would you need a concealed weapons permit? It’s a silly question, we know. Of course you would—and the state would be obligated to grant you one, provided you had no serious criminal history and the plasma-blasting was something you could control.

At least, that’s the legal conclusion drawn by James Daily of Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, and Ryan Davidson, an insurance lawyer from Fort Wayne, Indiana. Daily and Davidson are the founders of Law and the Multiverse, the first blawg to seriously consider such questions as: Would mutants be protected by the Americans for Disabilities Act? Is Batman a state actor? And what’s the best place for a super-villain to build his super-secret hideaway? (Answers: yes, yes, and outer space). Law and the Multiverse is where DC Comics meets D.C. v. Heller, and habeas corpus meets levicorpus.

Mother Jones spoke with the dynamic duo recently about the Affordable Care Act, Citizens United, and the zombie apocalypse.

My favorite part:

MJ: Prior to the Affordable Care Act, would health insurers have been permitted to discriminate against mutants? Is that the ultimate pre-existing condition?

James Daily: Most mutant conditions don’t seem to involve a lot of special health care needs.

Ryan Davidson: Quite the opposite.

JD: Wolverine for example would be a health insurer’s dream.

RD: They’d sign him up any day of the week.

JD: Now, separate from the issue of whether or not they have a mutation, is being a superhero. That does seem to be fairly dangerous and does land folks in the hospital on a fairly regular basis. They always seem to make a miraculous recovery, but still, they do need medical attention quite frequently. So listing “superhero” as your occupation might make your health insurance premiums pretty high.

RD: Life insurance premiums would also be pretty bad—particularly as some of those people might die more than once.
