My thoughts on Strange Adventures #2 by Tom King, Evan Shaner and Mitch Gerads:

Two days ago I read Flex Mentallo, Grant Morrison's thesis on what heroes should represent in our society. His idea was that heroes are our modern mythology and should represent a sort of unbridled optimism that can be seldom found elsewhere. This isn't to say that heroes are perfect, but when they're freque more

Can Adam Strange handle the truth? After the cosmic adventurer was accused of murder and had his whole record as a soldier questioned, he turned to Batman for help clearing his name. But someone else was needed to ensure that the investigation would be truly impartial. Enter Mr. Terrific, the man for whom “Fair Play” is a credo to live by.

Oh my fucking god. I am so sorry. I mixed up Alan Moore's Tom Strong with Grant Morrison's Flex Mentallo. I always do that for some reason. Despite being aware of who Flex Mentallo *and* Tom Strong both are. I feel ultra embarassed. My point still stands, even if Grant Morrison never contradicted himself lol

Br'er Lapin AKA 20-Ish Ceiln - Jul 26, 2020

You know what is funny though? Tom King's Batman was based entirely on Grant's ideology of heroes. Tom King took Grant's advice who said you must kill Batman and have him rise back up to win in the end (not exact words). Then Grant Morrison roasted his Batman in GL Blackstars for doing the very same thing he told him to do! For the most part though Grant is definitely not hypocritical. He likes his silver age DC heroes. Just recently he reiterated on his ideal hero in an interview on GL.

This just got spicy. With the conspiracy we are left with in Issue 2, King jumps the gun and kicks the story into high gear. The image of Adam Strange and what exactly happened on Rann, as well as what might happen to Earth is now becoming more and more muddled and elusive as this issue goes on, and thats exactly what King wants you to see. King is hiding something, and he is hiding it damn well. more
