False God, false Universe

Left click to enlarge
I'm sure by now most of you have seen that Batman Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer with that scene of the Superman statue with the "False God" graffiti right? It made me think of this panel from Checkmate 24 (2008) in which Superman teams up with Checkmate in order to take down a Kobra plot. Fuck the new DCU for having some cheap Kobra knock off (Basilisk) instead of the real thing. The New DCU, a false universe.

Suicide Squad 30 (1989)

  1. And how did that story not end with Superman(with all of his powers) not take out Kobra and have him arrested?

  3. Shit, as powerful as Superman is, there's no fucking way he couldn't find and take him down like Osama Bin Saggin' if he didn't really want to. That nigga' ain't Batman.

    1. well it's not like Kobra and Superman went mano e mano. Kobra has a lot of weapons at his disposal such as the art of deception, an army of ISIS like religious fanatic followers and even magic. plus that story arc was written by Greg Rucka so there's that to.

  4. Kobra was such a great foe in the DCU, but I think King nailed why he hasn't resurfaced. Still stinks though.

  5. I guess man, I just don't see(outside of necessary story-telling purposes) that one wouldn't be wrapped up in 10 seconds, army or no army.

  6. Nerd nitpick: Some dumbass writer decided the original honorific "naja-naja" was incorrect and changed it to "naga-naga." This was around the time of the Janus Directive crossover that ruined Suicide Squad.

    For the record a *naja* is another name for a cobra and a *naga* is a stupid looking monster from D&D. So there.
