While discussing the "Wonder Woman" movie this weekend (it's awesome, go see it if you haven't already!), I started thinking about how DC organizes its heroes and villains into duos of opposites.
So Batman, the champion of justice, is opposed by The Joker, the champion of random meaninglessness. There can be no justice in a world where fate is usurped by chaos.
Wonder Woman, the champion of peace and all that is noble in humanity, is opposed by Ares, the god of war who believes all humans are evil and worthless.
Which brings me to Superman, and for the life of me I can't quite put my finger on why Lex Luthor is his opposite.
So I'm asking you -- what's your best explanation for why Lex is Superman's antithesis?
What you see here is the place where virtually the entire Marvel Universe sprang forth from the brush and mind of Jack "King" Kirby:
I love this photo, and I want to tell you why.
In the course of this testing I'm realizing how long it's been since I drew anything. Good lord.
Hey folks, nothing major, but I just wanted you to know that Ye Olde Jeffe is still alive and kicking. The mods are doing a great job and I'm so happy you all are creating and having fun, but if there's anything you'd like to see us do more or less of please let me know.
I am also working on a Sooper Sekrit project that will hopefully pave the way for a HeroMachine 4 that is HTML-based instead of relying on Flash. Which is good, because Flash is, sadly, going to be pretty much non-existent at some point in the near future.
Anyway, thanks for being such a great community and keep on creating!
Hey folks, just wanted to give you a heads-up that the server's been crashing the last couple of nights. I'm trying to keep an eye on it while we figure out the root cause, but if you can't get to it please drop me a line and let me know.
My apologies for any frustration!
I just got a scary email from Kaldath's sister:
Hey I am Kaldath's sister. He is in the hospital here in NJ and VERY sick. He is having surgery tomorrow and could use some prayers. Don't know how to work this website so maybe you can put the word out for him. He has is personal cell phone but right now it is off as the battery is dead and no charger with him.
I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope things go well for him tomorrow, I can honestly say that much of this community wouldn't exist without Kaldath. All the best, my friend, get well soon and completely.
