> Yes, it's true that Grundy's strength has fluctuated over the years, but did you get the impression that this was one of his wimp versions? He tossed Red Tornado around like he was nothing, and was fully prepared to duke it out with the whole JLA. So, do you think he was stronger or weaker than a tree?

I commented on your origial post, but I had to jump in here. I hate people who make assumptions and ignorant comments. It's fine for you not to like something, but don't put down other people who do. There's a lot of fans of that book, and I have yet to meet one who is a bloodthirsty mysoginist. And FYI I didn't enjoy Sin City comic, but I did enjoy the movie.



...And on topic. I loved this issue of JLA.

Ah, so you're one of those who have an 'anything goes' philosophy. Sorry, but in a democratic society, it's hardly ignorant to be condemning of a form of entertainment(and those who consume it), that can be seen as damaging to society in general(ignorance implies the critic doesn't know what he's talking about). Are people who engage in(or view for fun) extreme fighting, dwarf-tossing, drag-racing, jackass movies, etc, etc above criticism? If they like it so much, then they should be able to defend their choice from those who don't.

Which brings me to another point. Since you liked it so much, why didn't you say what was so redeeming about the film? Alot of people say they liked the movie but never say why. Was it the scene where Bruce Willis rips the pedophiles genitals off with his bare hands? Or where Jessica Alba gets a whipping, but looks as if she's enjoying it? Please elaborate.

How does this tie in to JLA? Did we really need to see Tornado's arm get ripped off? Kids do read comics you know. It seems to me that Meltzer wants to be the new Miller. In an adult comic that's fine. You'll forgive my 'ignorance' if I remain critical of something that's also meant to be enjoyed by children.
