    Default Scott Lobdell's Bad Guy Diagrams In Today's DC Comics (SPOILERS)

    Today, Scott Lobdell writes DC's two main bad guys, Lex Luthor and The Joker? And how do we know they're bad guys? Because they both use diagrams!

    In Superman #15 we have the incarcerated Lex Luther getting access to holo pen and holo paper to sketch out a certain Fortress Of Solitude, plotting out a way in...



    And in the Joker die-cut covered Teen Titans #15 we have The Joker giving us, well, a less intricate blackboard drawing of his own plans.



    All bad guys draw their plans out. All the good guys keep them in their heads. That's basically, according to Lobdell, is how you tell the difference.

    Maybe that's why he's leaving Red Hood And The Outlaws? Too much hitting, exploding, stretching and posing in that title and not enough diagrammage?

    Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London. Currently enjoying a half price sale!

    I'm not sure how to comment on this. Is this another news article for the sole purpose of a lame joke?
    The last one didn't go so well, did it? Not that this should generate any backlash, on the other hand I would worry how this kind of Front Page news reflects on the site.

    Here lately, I think they're more likely to use it as a stick to beat Rich. Tolerance for Rich's more lame jokes seems to have run right out.

    There was a comedian Lee Camp I think his name is, that has a bit about bad guys always having plans, it went something along lines of most people's Thursdays consists of watching tv and being with their families but Haliburton's Thursdays consist of power point meetings on how to destabilize a third world country and gain access to thier natural resources. It was a lot funnier when he said it.

    And it's really no surprise, seeing how lame they have become.

    Is that upspeak or a Ron Burgundy impression?
