Marvel and DC develop obsession with severed arms

Here's some pictorial examples of the gory madness that's been devouring both DC and Marvel of recent. For example, from Brightest Day 19, we had Black Manta slicing off Aquaman's right hand, as though it weren't enough that earlier, his left hand had been severed. And to make everything worse, Geoff Johns, who wrote the issue nearly 2 years ago, even has the gall to have Manta tell Aquaman, "you should be used to this by now", which is doubtlessly a subtle insult to the audience, to say nothing of Aquaman himself. Johns really loves Aquaman? Not if he's going to put him through such sensationalized misery he doesn't.

Then, more recently, in the relaunched Uncanny X-Men, in either issue 2 or 3, Emma Frost had her own left arm severed, even in her new diamond form:
I fail to see what the point is for this beyond more unremitting darkness for the X-world.

And then, in Justice League's 5th issue, even if it isn't cut off Green Lantern ends up with a crushed arm, courtesy of Darkseid:
So this is what they reintroduced the lead adversary of the New Gods for - just so that he can be depicted as sadistically violent towards the heroes.

And let's not forget Static Shock recently fell victim to this kind of violence too, in the first new issue:
On top of that, it's clear that they've lost themselves to an obsession with arm severing and bone breaking, and that's one of the leading reasons why their fortunes are dwindling.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
