Every comic I’ve ever read that has taken place on New Genesis or Apokolips (or Oa, Rann, Thangar, Krypton, etc.) there is one thing I’ve never seen. For all the advanced knowledge and technologies that exist on these other worlds I have never seen a screen. No screens on windows, no screened in porches, no sliding screen doors. If you open a window on a planet not named earth, flies are going to come right in.
“HEY, DESAAD, CRACK A WINDOW IN HERE, WON’T YOU? IT’S HOT HERE, Y’KNOW”
“I…uh…wouldn’t recommend that, my liege.”
“COME ON! WE LIVE ON APOKALIPS! AND IT’S AUGUST!”
“Okay, just remember I told you so…”
Desaad opens a window only for a giant swarm of flies to come in
“You killed our brothers!!! Attack!!!”
It’s like the beginning of 1776.
Desaad: Can we compromise here?
Granny: Voooote yes! (To torturing more orphans.)
Darkseid: No! Too many flies here!
Granny: Voooote yes!
Darkseid: Oh for my sake, Granny, sit down!
I love the responses these get.
FYI, Nu52 felt like she had to talk about how awesome you are on the weekly podcast, Fans of the DC Universe!
Also never actually thought but how do apokoliptian flies or any other bugs look like. Do they even have them?
