Snark Free Corner for 5/21

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

COMIC THING I MISS

How come superheroes don’t get romantically involved with “normal” people anymore?

In fact, we barely even SEE normal people anymore, do we?

Grant Morrison has Batman dating a normal person (well, relatively normal – she’s not a superhero, at least), and Superman has his usual cast of normal folks (same with Spider-Man).

But otherwise, it seems like every other book is filled with supporting cast members who are superheroes, former superheroes, related to superheroes, etc.

I would like to see more NORMAL supporting cast members, especially romantic interests.

Remember how cool Linda Park was in the Flash?

Remember how interesting it was when Heather Hudson was just a “norm”?

Remember how cool Alex DeWitt was before she was killed (I had a joke here about oh, so THAT’S why we don’t see more normal romantic interests, but I realized that that would probably be classified as “snark,” so I held back)?

More normal cast members, please!!

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

Good luck! A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

What DC superhero who has never been in the Justice League would make the best addition to the Justice League?

This week’s game is as follows…

Name me a cover (and remember, only one cover per commenter) like the following cover (and NOT COUNTING the following cover) that features Batman punching Superman.

Good luck!
