Storm Warning: The Dark Side Club

Filed under: Blurbs — David Uzumeri @ 12:55 pm

Sometimes, I’m reading the weekend previews, and an image or a panel jumps out at me as something to mention. This week, in the preview for Teen Titans #59, we see Darkseid’s “gangsta” iteration from Seven Soldiers: Mister Miracle. Morrison’s Dark Side was an imposing figure, in a sort of Suge Knight way, and spoke a bit more colloquially, but at the end of the day he was still pretty much Darkseid.

So. Without further ado or judgment, I present the image I think we’ll be seeing a lot of on the blogosphere next week, an image from a book that displays the CCA symbol and is ostensibly one of their more youth-friendly titles:

Does he treat the Female Furies like this?

Does he treat the Female Furies like this?

  1. “Does he treat the Female Furies like this?”
    Probably, since in Seven Soldiers the Furies were actual prostitues.

    Also I wouldn’t put this in the same league as Ms. Marvel-Dr. Doom.

    Still, don’t know why they even have the CCA on books anymore.

  2. Yeah, I was gonna say pretty much exactly what kwaku did. I’m sure he does, since the revamped Furies are actual prostitutes (and Granny is their pimp, which is awesome in so many ways).

    And c’mon, it’s Darkseid. He is not a bad guy, he is the Worst Guy. Doom has that air of always being a gentleman when he’s not currently trying to laser-blast your face off; he wouldn’t call a woman a whore. I don’t expect politeness from Darkseid.

  3. The Dark Side club is a gang, and Dark Side is a gangster, but is he really a “gangsta”? He doesn’t present himself in that way. Are all black gangsters necessarily “gangstas”?

  4. Yeah, Doom only calls women fat.
