One of These Things is Not Like the Other....


You know, at a meeting of mob bosses, you have certain expectations, even in the DCU. Black Mask. Lex Luthor. The Ventriloquist.

I can barely handle Magpie sitting there, but ok.

What is Kite-Man doing there?

Seriously.

Kite-Man.

There's a time you can sneak in old, forgotten characters and it's charming. This is not one of those times.

I'm making it enjoyable by imagining what led up to him being a bloody heap in the chair. They invited him over, and he thought the bad guy community was taking him seriously for a change. Then, when he showed up thinking he was part of the crowd, they all laughed at him and insulted his gimmick while he was manually disemboweled. That's a scene right out of a Stephen King book right there!

We've got a problem when the stuff I make up off-panel is more interesting than what I actually see.
