It WAS a little hard to walk with, but it worked. I was the new HQ, aka the cartoon, who wears the old outfit and has the new hair.

I LOVE this! I am hoping they extend this to adults. I am tired of trying to integrate my cane into my costume. (Usually as a staff, but last year, as Harley Quinn’s mallet.)

It also came off as kinda weird when Mike ran over Jordan -- like, both Wildcat and Hourman just had moral crises over killing their opponents, and now a 12-year-old can just kill an adult as a punchline?

For me, it’s never about whether or not a villain “deserves” it. It’s about what gives the hero the right to play judge, jury, and executioner. We’re split in this country over the death penalty (for a variety of reasons), and we’re supposed to be okay with people in masks with zero accountability killing people? Read more

I had the same take on this show. It seems conflicted. First, it is a show that is for a younger audience. That’s obvious. Yet they have not just one, but two of the “good guys” straight up murder two of the bad guys. You can’t forget the little brother at the end just plowing into icicle as a stupid punchline.

That’s why it’s called a microaggression: it’s one small thing that, on its own, is probably a nothing, but when it adds up over time with others, it becomes a real problem. Especially because it’s such a small act done by a stranger who’s not aware of it. Did you ever see that Key & Peele sketch about the substitute

Not at an awards ceremony. If the task is to announce people’s names to bestow honor, the host should learn or be told how to pronounce all of the names. Read more

“It’s a weird business, the film business,” Shuler Donner said. “We honor creativity and talent and we forgive the brilliant ones. Unconsciously, we probably do enable them by turning a blind eye to whatever they’re doing and taking their product and putting it out to the world.” Read more
