Pornographized violence

Occasional Superheroine, former staffer at DC, presents one of the nastiest scenes from Infinite Crisis, where Deathstroke spears Phantom Lady to death. One of the most insulting things about the panel from the miniseries is the apparent "self-commentary" in Slade Wilson's word balloon, when he says, "just business."

And the worst thing about the panel featured is how it mixes sexuality with violence. Aside from that Deathstroke was still being portrayed out-of-character, that panel is definitely in bad taste, and another minus to Geoff Johns' record.

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.
