DC Comics Comments on CM Punk Wedding Day Firing:

The company whose initials stand for Differences Creative is shocked to learn the details of Punk's departure from WWE.

DC Comics, a company whose embarrassing public feuds with its own employees have in large part led to a website whose sole purpose is to track how many times since the company last did something stupid, was stunned today after a comprehensive tell-all interview with professional wrestler CM Punk revealed the specific details of his split with World Wrestling Entertainment earlier this year. The comic book publisher, which recently allowed an announcement that it would be moving across the country (without some of its employees) to be made on tabloid website Bleeding Cool, was astonished to learn the details of CM Punk's treatment by the wrestling company, which included ignoring the wrestler's purple, bulging staff infection for months and forcing him to work after surgeries and concussions. Various DC Comics executives, who frequently find themselves the subject of public ridicule for ill-thought-out and tone deaf comments and actions, were bewildered at the senseless and cruel actions of the pro wrestling federation.

DC Co-Publisher Dan Didio, who presided over the company during a time when popular writer Gail Simone was temporarily fired from her job as Batgirl writer via email, reportedly remarked "damn, that's cold" when learning that Punk was officially fired from the WWE on the day of his wedding after being called "family" by a crying Vince McMahon when he went on sabbatical several months earlier. Punk decided to walk away from the company after years of not making as much money as other wrestlers and seeing a few older stars given preferential treatment over newer ones, which came as a shock to DC Comics, which once drove Batwoman creative team JH Williams III and W Haden Blackman off the book by refusing at the last minute to let them execute a long planned marriage for the character and then switched the creative team out early after they publicly announced their plans to leave. "That's just not right," said DC Editor in Chief Bob Harras in reference to WWE's actions. Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, whose corporate employer has been the subject of numerous accusations and lawsuits regarding the compensation of the creators of the intellectual properties that make them billions of dollars, was said to take issue with the WWE's forbidding of Punk signing an endorsement deal after skyrocketing in popularity and bringing attention and revenue to the company, despite allowing returning superstar Brock Lesnar to have his own sponsors a year later.

Co-Publisher Jim Lee was unavailable for comment due to prior comittments chasing a small laser dot around the carpet for several minutes before settling in for a fourteen hour nap. When he wakes up, he'll probably read the highlights of Punk's interview at PWInsider, or listen to it in full on Colt Cabana's podcast. CM Punk, just like many comic book creators driven from DC Comics, is now writing comic books for Marvel.
