    Awesome! Been waiting to see Snowflame again, he's so freakin' awesome!

    Oh well, I better get back to finishing my work for the theme song contest, keep up the good work.

    (btw, when New Guardians ended, did the heroes continue in some other comic or did it just.. end?)

    Well, I know some of them moved on to different things. Floronic Man became a villain again, Jet became a member of the Global Guardians... I don't recall seeing Ram, Extrano, or Betty again. And Harbinger was killed in an issue of Superman/Batman, which just made me grumble since it felt like it was just shoving her out of the way so she wouldn't be around for Infinite Crisis.

    Ah, okay. Don't know that much about DC since the only comics I read when I was young was Spiderman comics and once in a while maybe a Batman comic. ^^

    Not to mention that the comics always take such a long time to get here (I live in Sweden), for example: The latest Spiderman issue, that is getting released next month... Is One More Day.

    Edit: Oops, got my information wrong. (That's what I get for not keeping up with released), we're appearantly on Identity Crisis now. Odd, I saw a OMD ad yesterday. :/

    Extraño could SO work nowadays.

    ... or not. Given that he dresses as Dr. Strange. His name MEANS "Strange". And he's a flamboyant caricature of both latinos and homosexuals.

    I'm so sad Millenium is the only big event series I own all issues from...

    The Supergirl introduction arc was otherwise awesome though. And wow you know I've watched this video a few times but I didn't notice that quick flash of text on the second time the Hitler clip was used until now.
  • pomaflah
    What does that text say?

    now then all we need to do is make a Snowflame/deadpool/cable comic and the best comic ever will have been made!
  • CmdNuppu
    Snowflame is so awesome! :D
    A sketch of him might be pre gold if done right :D
  • YigSnakeDaddy
    Hemogoblin must be some sort of AIDS-vampire, which is pretty fucking WTF.
    Not not nearly as WTF or awesome as Snowflame.
  • Sir Tobbii
    avatar
    Yeah, but let's not forget that vampires are pretty much invincible, so Aids shouldn't kill them :P
  • Lieutenant Fish

    Ahhh Snowflame, you're always good for a laugh. I'd use some of his quotes in everyday situations, except for the small drawback of no one understanding what the hell I was talking about.
  • Marioh

    god!...

    Cartoon figures that warn us about aids SUCK BALLS!!
    what the hell was the message in all that?
    if you get Aids your dead??
    whats the point of that!? c'mon if you want to Warn people from getting aids... at least make it realistic! c'mon, if your bitten by a (h)Emo goblin youl die in a week!?
    there is abselutaly nothing to learn!

    the worst part of it is the time this *thing* was relised, there was alot of debates about, how peoples lives dont end after getting aids... this comic with its lame start and end sentence "life is hard, then you die"
    goes the COMPLETE other way!!
    gorsh i hate this!


    by the way!
    Linkara, spread your superpower!!! its a demand!! for beeing a MAAAAAAAAAAN!
    you know that the world needs your super human genes!
  • Squeaks  - We need more Snowflame!
    avatar
    Ah, we finally meet the notorious Snowflame! It really is a shame he only lasted one comic because, to be honest, he seems like a creative villain if nothing more and his Ultimate Warrior style of speech is pure gold. I honestly think we need to start petitioning for a Snowflame comic. Because the only other way we could get dialog like that is to ask for more Warrior, but dear god I don't think ANYONE wants to see that again.
  • Lowcifur

    I was morbidly hoping Linkara would be covering the remaining issues of Warrior, though I can completely understand why he would move on to something else. After all, it took the collective efforts of what I understand to be EVERY REVIEWER ON THE INTERNET to handle the first issue.

    "Life is hard, and then you die." Well, that's slightly disconcerting. And how many times does that quote show up in the comic? Talk about repititive.

    I loved your miss Cleo comment. Her commercials from years ago still ring in my damn ears after all this time.

    A villain powered by cocaine is extreme win. Forget solar powered or radioactive super villains, drugged out villains is where it's at.

    Your very last question is very interesting. I happened to be thinking that during the entire review. He shouldn't be in the group.lol.
  • Xylon Lionheart

    I was thinking about that last comment you made all throughout the video after it was revealed that one guy was gay. It really doesn't make sense. Maybe he's bi or willing to suffer the horrible fate of having sex with a woman for the betterment of mankind.
  • Domanese  - Snowflame is God.
    And why DC refuses to revive his sheer awesomeness is beyond me. I can honestly say that I am for the group of him being the most awesome supervillain ever. Or at least among the top ten.

    Anyway, Linkara my first comment goes to you. Pure entertainment is guaranteed with you. I eagerly await the day when you start ripping Countdown to shreds.

    That plant guy hanging from the tree looks like one of those dancing reggae muppets from Labyrinth.

    lol, Coocoo for Cocaine Pops.
  • laughingman  - Team America, F*** YEAH!
    avatar
    Nice Team America include. B)

    Personal opinion: the "What This Comic Taught Me" should be featured in all your reviews. I love recaps of the absurd :silly:

    You have a really good point at the end there.

    Great as always, btw.

    You know, if they're such vastly superior beings who can apparently survive being shot, and are the ones meant to, as you put it, have lots of sex to save the world, how the hell were they able to contract AIDS so easily? You would think that, if these six were the ones to keep humanity going or whatever the premise to this weird-ass comic series was, wouldn't the ones that granted them their powers would have, oh I dunno, made them immune to any and all disease just to make sure they wouldn't all be killed by like swine flu or something? And yet apparently they managed to contract AIDS within the very first comic.

    I've never experienced such a strange mixture of pity and complete and utter idiocity.

    I'm guessing Snowflame is the love child born from Warrior and Sanata's horriying rape night in that one picture from the Warrior review....actually, that makes a little TOO much sense when you really think about it.

    I was wondering when this comic would get its own video.
    And I was wondering if you'd get around to the Extrano question.
    Actually, the way the series explains it, those characters are the ones with the right genes necessary to help push humanity's evolution to the next stage on the way to becoming Guardians; the idea that one might not like procreative sex didn't seem to occur to the Guardians.
    Poor Joe Staton. This is definitely a low point in his career. An entire series based on "real-life relevance". It still remains an embarrassment to DC.
  • Morgenstern
    There is a small mistake in the Video about Salvia and HIV. While it is true that one cannot infect himself through Salvia (at least no case is know), the Virus can still be found in it (the same goes with tears).


    btw: if anyone is interested in what adolf is saying:

    "We dont want to lie, we dont want to cheat."

    at least if I got it right. Hitler talked in a rather weird accent that is often hard to understand, for example he rolls his "r" with is something not usually done by Germans (maybe Austrians. not sure about them).

    Ah, the return of Snowflame to Linkara's world...and he's the BEST part of the comic? Holy mamma jamma!

    Talk about comic book with lot of information mistakes and lame heroes and also lame villain. Thats one comic book that can't redeem itself.
  • Noll_UK
    avatar
    Ah brilliant!!!

    nothing but laughs, and the team america link, great!

    I think what I can take away from this comic

    drugs should never be mentioned by "super heros"

    What a suckfest of stereotyped insanity and a weird story that seemed like a possible crack fantasy

    BTW I think the cocaine guy is pretty awesome too.
  • NowCompleteWith  - The Gay guy is there...

    for moral support. Think about it Linkara. It makes sense. Really it does. Really.

    He listens to their dating woes and does their hair. No, wait, his hair is horrid, no one lets him near them!
  • Dectilon
    I'm surprised not more artists refuse to draw for such utterly stupid crap.

    By the way, I think you have some desync in the middle somewhere.
  • Linkara
    avatar
    Yeah, the tape I used had some issues and a section was garbled and since I didn't want to reshoot, I just made a new voiceover and salvaged what I could of the lipsync.
  • lanthroviel
    Easter egg SPOTTED! :D...Who's tytrope? ^^

    Anyway, nice one,about the part with aids being contracted with bite, I do remember an old episode of some show my mom watch (one of the Wolf Dick one) where a thug bite a cop to try to give her aids...But wikipedia says you can't :p.

    Also, where does the spaniard said he was gay? XD
    But nice indeed,too bad snowflame died so soon...

    TvTropes is a wiki filled with every archetype, idiom, cliche, etc. ever found in fiction. It's notable for its witty writing and sheer addictiveness.

    Linkara's been quoted a few times over there, and he's used a few terms made popular by the wiki, so this is just one of many shout outs to it.
