I will be upset if Black Manta don't constantly bring up Aquaman's son in their intro banters and clash banters in Injustice 2 when he's available as DLC.

I will also be disappointed if Black Manta don't find ways to compare every other character to Aquaman.

Not him but as someone who's been 6'3" since middle school but has been a toneless skinnyfat (slowly turning to fatfat now that my 20s are ending) the whole "manlets, when will they learn?" thing has been baffling to me. I never thought about my height. Do short guys really think it's that big a deal?

It's actually kind of sad how bad some short peoples' self esteem is. I've got a friend who always whines about how short he is and how it means no woman will ever date him. He completely ignores the fact that we have a shorter friend who's in a stable long-term relationship, because he doesn't drive everyone crazy whining about how unfair women are.

>>53324969
Eh, I've never liked when villains are written so they'll never actually kill the heroes. It just makes them pretty toothless to me. Sure, they can still be villains and murder civilians, friends, family, etc. but when you put the villain and hero in a room together, all the tension is just gone.

That was a really great scene. Perfectly shows Black Manta's obsession with Aquaman.

>>53325136
To be fair, I'm pretty sure the company that makes these figures started with Batman first, so I can kinda see why they'd make him the center of everything. But at least he isn't as bad as Green Arrow in Arrow. Jesus, that show is trying to be a Batman show so hard it hurts.

They had a lot of interaction in the DCAU. So people made a few jokes about it, then people actually started seriously considering it. More or less.

>>53326090
Any universe that begins with superheroes fighting each other of their own free will is pretty much guaranteed to be shit. I don't know about anyone else, but I outgrew the "my superhero can beat up your superhero" shit a long time ago. It just seems childish to me now. And it also completely fucks up the idea that these two people are supposed to be friends when they start trying to kill each other. Like in Civil War. Sure, Tony, yeah, you and Steve were such great friends, despite never getting along and now trying to throw the other in jail.

Sometimes he commit crimes unrelated to Aquaman just so that he can get the funding or equipment to mess with Aquaman.

Basically, if he's working with a supervillain to steal an experimental seismic disruption machine, it's because he wants to use it to earthquake the shit out of Atlantis.

An Earth-3 comic could be pretty cool. Though you'd have to set a bunch of ground rules first, since there are so many ways to interpret the idea of an inverted Earth. Like, do the Lantern Corps still exist? Do their colors still match up to what they match up to in the regular Earth? Is this Earth's version of Atrocitus the Blue Lantern Pacificus? And it's a small thing, but I would've prefered Dextro for an opposite Sinestro.

But yeah, the idea of an inverted Black Manta would be awesome. Hmm, would what be the closes Earth-3 character to the mainstream Black Manta though? Jay Garrick's counterpart? Saint Walker's, Dick Grayson's?
>>
>>53333414
>Dick Grayson's
Well Dick Grayson's counterpart is Talon. Got adopted by Owlman, he betrays Owlman when he realized Owlman killed his parents.

I forget if it was /co/ or here but there was a conversation about Earth 3 Thawne He traveled through time to try and Johnny Quick's life good as possible but no matter what he does he ends up being a scumbag.
>>
>>53333501
Right. I just didn't know anything about him as Talon. Earth-3 stories just focus on the main villains of the Syndicate, other characters like Talon only get mentioned in passing. But I guess the better question would be who is the nicest person in the DCU, and then making an Earth-3 version of that person.

Nice. What would he be called? Reverse-Quick? Maybe The Ally, like the opposite of The Rival?
>>
>>53333633
Just going off memory I think it was played off the name Professor Zoom so he was Doctor Speed.

Nicest person in the DCU would probably be Billy Batson so he probably kicks dogs and commits incest with the Marvel family or some messed up shit.
