mr-cappadocia said: So why does Cracked CONSTANTLY push Feminist propaganda so hard? And let's not bullshit ourselves. You do. Just yesterday you published five articles. Two specifically referenced either Feminism or Feminist backed statistics. Conversely whenever you cover anything related to the opposition you not only mislead about their views... you straight up fucking lie about them and people let you get away with it because you're a "humor magazine". So I'm wondering why you propagandize *so hard*. Why?
Because we’re true believers!
Let me take this moment to say how Cracked could have gone another direction 7 or 8 years ago, a more Maximy, Booby Gallery of the Day direction if not for the steadfast resistance of David Wong and Jack O’Brien. I barely acknowledge the side that opposes feminism, but Wong goes out of his way to understand people who are mad at feminists, and he writes about those views with more sensitivity and understanding that I could ever muster.
To sum up: We don’t have an explicit agenda but if one comes across, It’s not one I’m ashamed of.
Kristi is a liar. I remember the meeting where the Cracked brain trust sat down and was like “From now on let’s occasionally post articles that either directly or conspiratorially tangentially support equal rights for women so we can accomplish our ultimate end goal: Hack into the penis of every man and make it a smaller penis, or a penis that is otherwise laughable for a different reason upon which we all agree. It almost sounds TOO easy,” Jack said, as he (via the mainframe) hacked a young Robert Brockway’s penis. “I think my wife deserves my respect,” the now-neutered Brockway yelped.
It is weird that we do it so constantly, when everybody knows that people only deserve equal rights and treatment between the hours of4 and 7 pm on alternate February the 29ths. At first we worried that we couldn’t cover it all with our current propaganda budget, but we were able to transfer some funding to supporting feminism from our “Don’t be an asshole” budget because it turns out they overlap completely.
Look, I get it buddy. You’re pissed off because you’ve tried to be a good person your whole life and still you feel like you’ve been consistently stripped of the things you thought were guaranteed , and now there is a whole organized movement saying you still have too much, that you, just trying to live your life, is an affront to an entire gender. That’s a shitty feeling, but here’s the thing: no one is actually trying to take anything from you. That sickening feeling you have that your being robbed of basic human rights, there are people around you in your life who are feeling a worse version of that everyday. If you don’t believe me, look at any of the secret camera videos women have taken on the street to catch the verbal abuse they suffer, listen to any of the stories of guys who touch women on crowded trains and then smile at them as they leave because they know there’s nothing she can do about it, read any of the millions of accounts from human beings about the exhausting and demoralizing abuse they put up with every day. And you might not be the guy making them feel that way, I hope you’re not, but holy shit, you can actually help. You can help other people instead of standing in their way because it feels like another inconvenience. Finally, even if the absolute worse case scenario is true: this is one big conspiracy, Cracked and feminists and a huge chunk of the Internet are villainizing men unfairly and creating a culture where you’re no longer allowed to even voice your opinions without people getting angry- even if all of that is true- isn’t that worth preventing an inarguably high percentage of sexual abuse and dangerous objectification of your daughter/ your sister/ your wife?
Not all the stabs at equality will be smart, or entirely on point or even helpful. This form of feminism is new, chillingly new for how long this shit has been going on, and not everyone is good at it yet, but holy shit, friend, how can you argue against the aim of basic respect for another human being?
SALES TRENDS | Because we love knowing how our books are doing.
- Between Earth-2 and Worlds’ Finest, Earth-2 sells the most books.
- September Events provide temporary sales boosts for both books. (Mostly).
- The First Contact event temporarily boosted sales for Worlds’ Finest. (Though not by much).
- The inclusion of Thomas Wayne as Batman did NOT increase sales for Earth-2 and continued the downwards trend. (Effectively invalidating the ‘only Batman sells’ argument).
- Earth-2 got a brief sales boost in the issue where Val-Zod became Superman (Earth-2 #24).
It may have also gotten a brief bump because it was Nicola Scott’s last issue.

this could have been so cool but why did it need to be an ass shot????
And the whole “let’s shade her ass so it looks like her suit is going completely up her butt crack so we can make it look like she’s naked” thing. The rest of this cover is so good and that one part just ruins it.
Why the Hell would you follow up Fabok, Garner and Nguyen’s covers with THIS CRAP?! Seriously, WHY?!!
Anonymous said: Do you think Val-Zod would've worked on the pre-Crisis Earth-Two? What identity do you think he would've used pre-Crisis?
I do think Val-Zod would’ve easily worked on the pre-Crisis Earth-2.
Actually, if he had been introduced within the context of this version of Earth-2, it would’ve been far less problematic than the way he was introduced in the New 52, which came at the complete expense of Power Girl as the legitimate successor of Superman.
On the original Earth-2, Kal retired his seat in the Justice Society to Kara, and it was Kara who made the decision to exist as her own independent hero, which is why she chose the name ‘Power Girl.’ She also chose how she was going to protect her new world, and made her own rules.
If Val had been introduced under these circumstances, he would not have been usurping Power Girl’s place on Earth-2, because Power Girl herself had already chosen her place.
Additionally, because the original Earth-2 was about legacy, if he had followed the pattern of all of the second generation superheroes, it’s very likely he too would have chosen his own purpose as a superhero, and his own identity. That’s exactly what all the children of the JSA members did, and even other characters who were not related to the Justice Society.
An excellent case in point was Charlie Bullock, who was Helena Wayne’s associate at her law firm and also a man of colour. Helena was already operating as the Huntress in Gotham when he decided to become Blackwing, citing Batman as his inspiration. He modelled his costume after Batman’s but chose a unique name for himself, just like the Huntress did.
He actually debuted in a Huntress solo story.
Manueluv and I are convinced Agent K is Coulson’s father. Hell, MIB is even owned by Marvel.
Welp. Never gonna unsee this.
