JLA ponderings

So Lois is married to Superman... or is she married to Clark? How does that work?

And speaking of alter egos, take Bats and Diana. Like Lois and Supes, he has a secret identity, she doesn't. Say they decided to hook up, what's less problematic: to be a couple as Diana and Bruce Wayne (and have people start wondering about a connection between Bruce Wayne and the Justice League) or as Diana and Batman (and have to maintain the Bruce Wayne persona as the womanizing playboy on the side)?

These are the kinds of things I think about when I'm driving between Stockton and Oakley twice a day.

Well, and I think about the driving, of course. Unhuh.

Actually I figure if I just keep posting about this stuff, sjhw_tolerance will eventually write me B/D fic.

That's certainly the cheapest way to do it ;)

Not to mention the sanest. The first thing anyone finds out when they get into comics via another medium? There is no one canon continuity. Both DC and Marvel have rebooted multiple times; what was true 20 or 10 or even 5 years ago in either universe may not be true any more.

People who've been following a character or team all their adult lives sometimes end up whimpering in corners. Poor unsuspecting fans of a movie or TV adaptation who wander in unawares can get lost and never seen again...
Man, I've only been exploring the non-animatedseries areas of the characters for a few days and I can SO already see that. Just the differences between the animated series (What they're currently calling JLU) and the JLA comics are pretty significant, I think. I don't know how people do it.
*chuckle* I only know the barest bones of DC continuity, and most of my information is two or three reboots outdated. (I read Teen Titans for most of the 80s.)

Then again, I know a lot more about Marvel (and particularly X-Men) continuity, and it's still barely the tip of the iceberg. Mostly because I went cold turkey several years before there were THIRTEEN X-titles for a while there.

Their own writers can't keep track of them. But fans keep trying...

The nice thing about it is that you can cherry-pick comics background stuff to inform your toon fic as you see fit. Unless they decide to use that element on the series, and use it differently, nobody has a leg to stand on to tell you you're wrong. Not that some probably won't try, but they won't have a leg to stand on. Anyone who tries to be a purist is already cherry-picking anyway, so you can feel free to ignore them when they're hypocrites about it. ;->
