That was I believe a comic set in Brazil and originally written in French specifically for the European market which was later translated and published stateside.

I'm sure you absolutely needed all of that info.

I think I have the story with that OG Batman post included in this anthology, which I have owned since I was maybe 8-9 years old:

Swamp Thing is basically a plant-based Punisher, though. He's never had any qualms about killing. Presumably because he views humanity through the eyes of a rutabaga.

I don’t think that first Batman appearance fits, as it’s not a deliberate kill; but rather the classic self-defense punch which causes the attacker to fall to his death.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Thursday, 8 August 2019 17:52 (four months ago) link

it was real and very charming... at least if you like the more laid-back "teens hanging out" aspects of Claremont's new mutants. Jo Duffy had bigger plans for the title that didn't materialize, so it ended up being kind of a curio. maybe most important for giving Multiple Man several of his ongoing concepts/issues with regard to the dupes having individual lives/experiences. (PAD would then re-do all this in X-Factor without acknowledging the source material.)

one of the new characters, Ariel the teleporter, made minor appearances in the late 2000s san francisco period. the other ones - Gomi and his lobsters, and the power-altering Chance, were never seen again AFAIK. i assume that either claremont or marc silvestri liked the idea of a streetwise, asian-american teen hero, and cooked up Jubilee on the premise that she should have combat-ready powers, or something. i guess we should be grateful Liefeld never saw fit to introduce pouch-laden, rifle-toting lobsters when he brought Siryn in for X-Force.

I was just catching up and saw discussion of this upthread but you beat me to exactly what I wanted to say (re: Year None). It's kind of shocking that the OG Ambush Bug crew was responsible for that POS.

McGrief the Crying Dog (Old Lunch), Friday, 30 August 2019 18:30 (three months ago) link

It should have been on matte paper, but it's definitely one of the greatest jokes in the history of Ambush Bug that issue by issue Didio was reading it and going "Making fun of Identity Crisis? Ha ha, so true, we didn't know what we were doing back then! Hey, Infinite Crisis too? Well, there were some excesses, in hindsight. Taking the piss out of 52? Boy, were the plates spinning on that one!"

And then it got to gags about Final Crisis or whatever was current and he freaked out and pulled the entire final issue of this six-issue making-fun-of-DC miniseries.

the darklord swapped them into each other's bodies, and Criss used his pure hate for Paul Stanley to kill him, so that Stanley would be trapped in Criss' pathetic form and lower royalty entitlement forevermore?

(also, judging from the balloons, this is one of the 1970s Kiss comics traced over digitally and recoloured in the early '00s? whose appalling notion was this?)

I'm rereading Busiek's Avengers run, and I totally forgot Warbird/Carol Danvers kills the Master of the World! The MotW actually tries to use the superhero no-kill-code for his advantage, saying that as an Avenger Carol wouldn't kill her, but she replies that since there's a war going on (this in the middle of the "Kang war" arc), the rules are different. Makes sense for the character too, at this point it'd been already revealed that before her first appearance in Captain Marvel she'd been working in military Special Ops, so she probably has less qualms about killing enemy combatants than the other Avengers.

Pretty graphic stuff, including extreme violence against a woman, so a genuine trigger (er, quiver) warning — this page and the following pages from Mike Grell’s Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters depict Ollie Queen freeing Dinah Lance from some very bad dudes... and he ain’t using “trick” arrows this time.
