    Dressing up pirates in stereotypical garb is not expediency. A generic look is expediency. This was clearly done with specificity in mind. And you can't give Miller the benefit of the doubt due to...

    What Kirby knows is irrelevant since that Lori suggestion would rewrite the story. It's not about keeping people from saying critical things. It's to make Lori an actual interesting character and not...

    Definitely. Having both Lori and Clark as Navel Recruits hiding their true selves and abilities would create an actual meaningful for connection, instead of "win me, win me".

    You realize the base is in America, right? Near San Diego. We're pretty far from the African coast and Somalia. And Somali pirates don't all dress in one uniform way that fit the stereotypical look...

    Agreed. Miller doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room for interpretation here. Denying the problematic nature of that scene is really to be in denial.

    And additionally on the navy. Where the hell were...

    There literally was no seen female character in this issue that wasn't threatened with sexual violence at some point. And of course while Pa Kent got mentioned a few times, Ma wasn't mentioned once.

    Welp, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Frank Miller sucks at writing women. Geez, how'd this Islamaphobic, sexist nonsense make it past editorial?

    Scott Snyder has shown interest in doing exactly that. And Snyder is certainly in a position to make something like that happen.

    I definitely see what you're saying there. Of course, Bendis's stuff so far has given me no faith in his ability to write Jon, so I'm not sure an extra six issues would have made a difference.

    You can't base character growth and development on things we didn't see. That's bad storytelling. It's like Bendis just wanted to hit fast forward on Jon's character and that's one of the things that...
