Eighteen years ago, I had a powerful dream where I was visited by ethereal beings who defied classification. I literally could not visually perceive them, they were just a digitized blur inside my brain. It was easily the most terrifying dream I ever had; I felt so completely undone and insignificant in their presence in a way that no person or wild animal could ever make me feel. As I sat there, dumbfounded, I barely had the presence of mind to ask myself, "why can't I see them?" and immediately I knew "I wasn't allowed to perceive them because I lacked the capacity to do so without suffering brain damage." I was astonished by how sure I was of that answer, like as sure as how to spell my name.

As soon as I asked myself the next question "How am I so sure?" I was aware that the information was placed in my brain, uploaded so to speak, directly by these beings because that's how telepathy works. There's no voice, no conversation just the instantaneous transfer of information from one brain to the next. The last thing I remember asking was "what do they want from me?" Once again I knew that they wanted me to fulfil my goals of becoming an artist so that I may be one of many agents in "the field" who are working to bring about change by challenging the status quo and stimulating conversation among the people.

The Lord can lead us to water but People can't be made to think. Only Art can do that and that's why they always use artists and amateur scientists who are liberated from accepted Groupthink by Objective Perception. That was the last thing I remembered about the dream and I haven't had another one since.

So, needless to say, I was inspired. Of course, I don't plan on changing the world by rambling on the internet, I have a 240 page comic book to get that ball rolling. Rambling on the internet allows me an opportunity to hone my argument beforehand while my editor irons out the last typos and some of the placeholder text before it's released next month.

I'm sure I'll get lots of push back for my views but that's the way it goes when individuals challenge the establishment.


I think I missed the drama that lead to this point, but holy fuck. :lol: :lol:

I want to believe that you're a genuine crazy, and this isn't an act. It would make this post much better.

I've been having too much fun with the Marvel NOW survey data. Plus I'm tired.

Maybe later, once all this silly dies down and we all need some laughs for another day or so.

Just throwing this out there and I don't care if I get reported or yelled at for it at this point. I'm going to be as blunt as possible:

You know how crazy this reads to most people right? I mean you have to understand that.

But I've never seen Grant speak at length about Batman and Superman being some sort of Winterfolk and trying to pass off that it's okay to be blatantly racist and slighty xenophobic. :smt102

Plus Grant apparently loves Thai food so that has to mean something.

Tsk Tsk Tsk. That's because everyone knows that Batman and Superman are winterfolk. :P

Batman spends a shitload of time in a cave underneath his home. And where is his home? Gotham City - a place normally located in the northern US of A. Doesn't sound like a summer place to me.

Superman is trickier since he's a fucking alien. Now, Krypton had a red sun, right? It's a place that doesn't have a warm, yellow sun. It's colder.

When Superman arrives as a little super baby, he has the abilities of the average human child. By the time he's in his teens, the kid has absorbed plenty of yellow sunlight to do shit like fly around and shoot laser beams out of his eyes. What's everyone else doing? Powerless as fuck. Of course, Superman can't openly flaunt his winterfolk-ness around so he's got to act like summer folk by wearing glasses and shit.

Superman represents winter folk, while the humans are summer folk. His relationship to the people of Earth represents the winter folk's amazing abilities and their equally-powerful humility.









Or I could just be typing a bunch of shit that I made up on the fly. :P
