The Cad and the Bat


When you’re out cruisin’ for love, nothing throws the old Pussy Wagon into reverse quite as effectively as the idea of committing statutory rape, something that the following encounter between Green Arrow and a teenage Batgirl well demonstrates.

Your attempt to impress the ladies has FAILED.

An American Supervillain Thanksgiving


If you need something to be thankful for this year, I’d say that not having Dr. Thaddeus Bodog Sivana as the designated turkey carver at your family’s dinner table most certainly qualifies.

I'd like to see how skillfully he can separate the white meat from the dark meat with that thing...

The Supervillain Relationship Age Gap


Any relationship where there’s a significant age difference between two partners requires some adjustment. This is apparently just as true for regular people as it is for those on the wrong side of the superpowered law, as the following discussion between supervillain-turned-superhero Max Damage and his (appropriately-named) underage (ex-)girlfriend/sidekick Jailbait attests to:

She's a criminal. And criminals are HOT!

Brotherly Love


When superhero-turned-supervillain the Plutonian discovers that the mind of his archenemy Modeus now inhabits the body of his deceased former partner and best friend Samsara, he’s a little emotionally conflicted to say the least.

That's gonna leave a mark...

Comic Book Sexual Innuendo – Part 16


When mankind is in danger, you call in the World’s Finest Team. When the World’s Finest Team needs a distraction, they call in Power Girl.

Those're certainly the nicest pair of distractions I've ever seen.

Thou Shalt Not Worship False Idols


If you’re going to make humiliating public confessions to someone you admire, make sure you’re 100% certain that you’re addressing the right person before shooting off your mouth. Unlike, say, our friend Runpen Binta here, who’s so awed at the prospect of meeting his idol, mysterious fellow lolicon manga artist Oozutsu Cannon, that he jumps to exactly the wrong conclusion:

Who better to write underage porn manga than someone who's underage?

This case of mistaken identity has been brought to you by Cannon-Sensei, You’re Going Too Far! (キャノン先生トばしすぎ/Cannon-Sensei Tobashisugi) (January 14, 2008) by Gorgeous Takarada.

This Side of Paradise Island


When an all-female incarnation of the Justice League Task Force is sent on a rescue/search-and-retrieve mission to a subterranean African realm ruled by a green-skinned tribe of warrior women known as the Daals, the peculiarities of the latter’s culture promotes a rather enlightening discussion amongst the team members.

I'm pretty sure the men were glad they didn't have to listen to your nagging.

Hooray for Capitalism!


There’s a certain comfort in knowing that, no matter who you are, you can always find exactly what you’re looking for at the World’s Biggest Online Marketplace.

I'm sure SOMEONE lost their Power Seller status because of THAT transaction.
