A top DC executive admits to wanting to kill an employee over creative differences.

Law-abiding citizens around the country were shocked Thursday to learn that mild-mannered DC Comics executive and lazy cat Jim Lee is actually a bloodthirsty murder conspirator who admits to wanting to kill one of his own employees. The news comes via a report from potential victim and Superman Unchained writer Scott Snyder, who described Lee's reaction to requests that Lee draw excessive variations of the Batmobile in a retrospective interview about the series:

No, we didn't have any disagreements. I think there was one moment when he wanted to kill me, and I didn't realize, like, how bad this would be. I've since come to realize how rough certain things are for artists.

But with Jim, it was when I did that piece where I was like, "Guess what, Jim? Batman throws every Batmobile in history at Wraith! How fun is that!?" He was like, "Every Batmobile in history..." [Laughs] I'm like, "Wait, what? What's the problem?" You know, you think about how fun that is as a story, and then you think, and you're like, "Oh my God. That would be a huge mountain," you know? To his credit, he didn't tell me until afterwards he was kind of mad about that. Like, he did it and did this great job, and he was like, "You know, I pretty much wanted to kill you when you said that." I was like, "What!?" So I'm much more aware of it now, I think. You know, I'm still pretty green. I'm still learning. So that was probably the tensest moment between us, and he never even let me know he was mad.

Luckily, Lee's plans were thwarted when the DC Co-Publisher located a warm, sunny spot on the carpet in his office, scratched at it with his paws for a few moments, and then settled in for a seventeen hour nap. At last report, Snyder was still amongst the living, but it's believed that Lee, a notorious catnip abuser, could snap and attack him at any moment, like the time he drove Chris Claremont off Marvel's X-Books in the early nineties by scratching the writer with his claws and then crawling behind a desk in Claremont's office and hissing until he evacuated the premises.
