    I have my reasons.

    I also find "Rational" people tend to stand around going "Let's be reasonable fellas?" While someone is being beaten half to death.

    Not making that up.

    I don't recognize your name, so I won't mentally lump you in with the posters who've actually turned my stomach over all this.

    Well, OL is aware of the issues and also smart enough to ask for advice.

    Also that analysis of Overgirl's situation and the human condition in general was very nicely done.

    Good show.

    (I also liked the self aware britain joke :D)

    I'm really looking forward to how this will play out.

    Not the whole world, but with Kryptonian tech and Overman and the other Statesmen . . . And a fuck of a lot of genocide while Overman was away . . . Greater Germany probably has a few continents under their belt.

    Most of Europe. Most of North America. Most of Central and Southern Africa. The Moon. Mars.

    Because I'm sure they felt the need to "cleanse" the colonial empires they'd have inherited from the defeated. Gotta build Mittelafrika somehow.

    And even when you live in the areas outside of Nazi control your only other options are simply other ethnonationalist states that are also probably fascist as fuck. At least if you plan on staying in the solar system.

    . . . At least you get to live in utopic conditions if you aren't their idea of sub-human?

    Incidentally, both Tara Strong and Arleen Sorkin - who portrayed Harley in BTAS and the Atkham Games - are Jewish.

    Miss Quinn is from New Joisey, much further south and a different dialect. She'd never Paak a Caa in Haavaad Yaad.

    And anything else would be a pale imitation of literary genius.

    Hey Zoat would OL have altered Blackfires inner desires like he did with Mammon if she was more like her pre flashpoint comic counterpart and betrayed her people and tortured, abused and had her.
    sister raped.
    Altering would make sense seeing as her attitude in the comics resulted in severe consequences for her and her people, like when that guy tried to warn them that their planet was going to be destroyed and she ordered him to be killed without hearing him out, and i am not sure that OL would allow her to continue doing her insane and evil shit, torturing her sister, but if he frees Starfire Blackfire would try to kill him so alteration seems to be in order, plus he can't exactly work on her long term rehabilliation like he is doing with Angelika because she has committed some truly evil acts and will not listen to him if he helps her sister
    Honestly the most positive portrayal of Blackfire, where she isn't a massive evil bitch, would have to be her post flashpoint version. She may have sold her sister into slavery but only did that to protect her people while other versions did that because they hated her, while new 52 Blackfire loved her sister and regretted doing that, though this may be because nu52 Blackfire never lost the ability to fly.
    The other most positive version is the earth one version and she was a mentally simplistic and physically degrading clone of her sister in that one.

    This is why when someone asks what power ring someone like Superman or All Might should have, I tend to think of the Blue Ring of Hope first, unless I've specifically got Green Lantern on the brain at the time.

    'Helmet.' 'Helmut' is a German name (kind of appropriate at the moment, but not accurate). I do agree that the choices involved are very important to OL, and generally to me (even if I'm pretty sure that I would be far less comfortable than OL appears to be with this situation).

    Yes, this. If Overgirl actually hurt someone OL cares about, he'd be far less inclined to be nice about things. There's also the fact that for a Nazi, Overgirl has been surprisingly calm and reasonable about the situation. If she were acting the way that we'd expect a Nazi to, OL would respond rather differently, as well.

    To be fair, OL has shown that he is not that specific kind of 'rational' person.

    I mean, given the orange light and all, OL isn't rational. He's a self focused fix ficcer with meta gaming ability.

    I get your sentiment but Harley isn't a Layman, Dr. Harleen Quinzel is a psychiatrist. She has a Ph.D. in Psychology and has spent years working as a practicing psychiatrist handling tough cases. Ofc she's also nuts, but that's a whole 'nother matter entirely :p

    At what point in the Draka timeline? I don't know the Draka timeline well, but I understand that they went in for some fairly radical biomodification towards the end. Also, Draka society is dependent on their serfs, whereas Nazi society on Earth would find the idea of being dependent on subhumans utterly disgusting.
    Remember what I said about grammar?

    Probably not. It's more likely that he'd have killed her when he destroyed the Citadel Complex.
    Harleen is perfectly sane.

    Oh man. The Draka. I remember them being disgusted by the Holocaust. Not because they found it morally wrong. The Draka regularly get up to shit that make the Nazis look tame. They just thought the Nazis were being wasteful by exterminating people instead of enslaving them.

    Screw the messed up society, the technology dispartity, and the people who decided running around with their underwear on their outside was the best way to deal with crime.

    It doesn't take a child to be uncomfortable about saying what we've been taught is the most repugnant word in the English language. Which, as I understand it, is an American thing in this case.


    I consider myself rational, but if violence is happening and I have a way to stop it I do so as quickly as possible. In fact I have actually put a stop to someone literally being beaten to death (no joke, I'm told the ER doctors said if I'd walked into that restroom 30 seconds later it would've been too late to save the guy). It was very much not a situation I ever want to find myself in again, but I would not hesitate to physically intervene again if I did. If you're actually witnessing violence then going "Let's be reasonable fellas?" is not a rational response. But initiating violence when none is yet occurring and it can still be avoided is never a rational action.

    I think I understand your reasons and they are understandable. But regardless of how disgusting a thought crime is initiating violence just because you don't like how someone thinks is never justified. Violence - even in self defense - is something that you should only resort to when there is no other option.

    Though, for perspective, Sensai (multiple Sensais through the years actually) taught me that the ultimate knife-defense technique is to hand over your wallet. I've had the idea of avoiding violence at all costs drilled into my head by several self-defense and martial arts instructors over the course of multiple decades.

    Thought Harley was from Jersey.

    True in text format Jersey and Bawsten [southie] look the same but do sound different.
    At least it's not New York Cabby. :p

    Hey Zoat could OL introduce the Sivana children, Georgia and TJ, to the chinese government, because if he wants them to pursue a more legal path in using their intelligence then having them help the chinese with their superhuman defence would work, like making sure that Immortal Man in Darkness doesn't need to be replaced when the previous one dies?

    How does Alan look now, i seem to remember OL mentioning that he looks like someone in his fifties, but after using his ring he looked like he was in his prime and i was wondering how he looks now?

    Can you give us a description of the history between Apokalips and the Maltusian race?
    When OL was talking to Hinon i think he mentioned something about them being responsible for their creation, or something like that i couldn't exactly follow because i didn't have the necessary comic knowledge and haven't been able to find it, something about splitting planets and Wonderworld.

    How old is Apokalyptian civilization in your story?
    When i read that tidbit about Raker Quarigats oath in year 5 he mentioned something about four million years and still not dead, so i was wondering if that means that they are 4 million years old seeing as the GLC appears to be only a million years old in your story?

    Is OL going to follow up on that suggestion he gave to Superman about releasing those prisoners in the Phantom Zone whose imprisonment time has passed?
    It would be really dangerous to leave them there seeing as they can potentially go insane beyond rehabilitation and like General Lane said when he was talking to the renegade about their anti kryptonian weaponry someone could figure out a way to open a portal to there and out comes a superpowered psychopath. If the ones they let out are beyond rehabilitation OL could simply kill them.
    Building a base on a planet with a red sun and putting red sunlight emitters in said base is a good countermeasure against them escaping.
