You're one to talk about accuracy when it comes to this book! You thought Nemesis used to be a good guy!


I just said it's the same concept as Irredeemable, and that was based on Millar's own statements that the concept of the book was "What if Batman was an asshole?" And it's pretty much correct. It's a low-brow version of Irredeemable, minus any effort put into motivation or characterization.

Well, you'll have to get in touch with him yourself as I no longer have access to his Facebook account! :P

No, the 20something's are not a bunch of idiots and I'd watch that off the cuff insulting when it actually feels like an insult. They are no more idiots then say, the British group that always seem to come across as arrogant assholes but are not actually like that.

And if you think this was more sexually twisted then anything you could think of I suggest checking out your local courthouse. There are people out there who do a lot worse in the "real world." Of course perhaps there should be a discussion on if Millar wrote this because of some possible sexual desire he may have for a sister or a even a brother.

But it's not the same concept. It's a similar tag-line, but that's just a tag-line, not the story. It's nothing like Irredeemable.

But Millar's books are 90% tag-line. What if superheroes fought each other? What if Unforgiven starred Wolverine? What if The Avengers were generic movie-badasses? What if Batman was an asshole?

There is no formal 'British Group'.

And I can't believe I'm getting stick for not being sick and twisted! It's a good thing to be shocked by this stuff.

I'd disagree with that. He has strong high-concepts, but the stories are always more than that. You are literally judging Nemesis by it's cover here.

I really could care less about the second part. He's a comic book writer, really he's nothing in the grand scheme of life.

All I'm saying is the insult was taken personally and I've asked you to knock it off. Next up is an official warning.

And maybe you Brits should ban together. You wouldn't want us American's to kick your ass... AGAIN! :P

He's something in the grand scheme of a thread about reviewing comics.

And if GHERU took it personally than the problem is with him. If I wanted to insult him personally, I would.

Which is proof that it's more than the tag-line.

I see, because the 20somethings aren't really people, they are a group. American's had that same attitude with blacks and Hitler had the same idea with Jews. Nice Punch, you are showing a whole new side of yourself.

The 20somethings suffered in the Bible? I thought Jesus died when he was 33!
