    gaaaah! i'm so confused now! Who edits the editors who edited the book that asked who monitors the monitors and the question coming from the guy who pictures the pictures into a video and-

    Definitely. The only thing that Linkara missed is the tone that the writing has from time to time.

    Every so often, the writing has a "I have no mouth AND I MUST SCREAM" feel to it. The Question's "They couldn't kill time (effectively)!" comment, the "Green lantern club", and other moments just scream that the writers know they're stuck making trash and that they're trying to make it as ludicrous, funny and subtly insulting to the editors as possible.

    Oh, and I think that Stuporboy Premo would have worked better had he actually looked like the whiny teenager he acts like. Just take the superboy from "The Return of Superman", paint him in "The Crow" makeup and imagine that image instead of Duperman Whine, er, Superboy Prime.

    Mind you, I don't think it would work much better, as Superboy Prime is a dose of sucktastic fail. It would just make more sense.

    Thank GOD the Young Justice Cartoon did Superman Prime right. For any who didn't see it, he couldn't talk.

    Thank the great beings in the skies!

    TEAR THIS CONVOLUTED CRAP COMIC TO BITS ONCE MORE!

    And I hope you get a nice vacation down in the Bahamas for torturing yourself with Countdown.

    I love the ending when you're fighting all those comics and you defeated them using the green ranger's dagger COOL!!!

    Love this video!

    I also like to point out i agree with your honorable killing of a main character thing. The death of Captain American is what turned me off to comics forever. Shot by a sniper coming out of a court house...... Since then I've never picked up a comic again..
  • megamonmon
    rule number one of comics(that i made up)
    never get too attached to a character because they either die, get screwed up or both
    perfect example ultimatum
    (shudders as thinking about ultimatum) :(
  • rowdycmoore  - You showed them!

    Everyone complained that you didn't use the "Final Countdown" music...

    NEVER DOUBT LINKARA!!!!!!!
  • Re-Todd  - Ha...
    Good one, Linkara!

    Linkara's pinky > me

    A fountain of knowledge you are, good sir. The definitive comic guy out there. If these weren't so much fun, I'd suggest doing a series for good comics.

    I used to have a Kenner Darkseid action figure back in the 1980s. I didn't have a Superman one, though, so I just had him beat up He-Man with a cape a lot.

    Linkara.. you win.
    Why? Because you made a Final Countdown reference!!!! :woohoo:

    Once again, the band Europe sees its entire existence reduced to a witty sound-bite. Somehow, that's a fitting for monument for the epic fail of comics.

    Speaking of sound bites... TEAM ROCKET music? Wow!
  • Atma  - Okay fess up.

    The laughing you used for the Countdown monster, that's Carnage's laugh from the genesis spider-man games, isn't it?
  • Linkara
    avatar
    Yup. Love that laugh. Had to go through several different tries during the end credits to get the laugh without music in the background.

    avatar
    And now I will never have to read Countdown. Thank you!

    Great video. Loved the Countdown monster at the end and the Power Rangers flashbacks I got from the Dragonzord Flute.

    Linkara, you are the best that TGWTG has to offer!
  • AdamTheGreat91  - Thanks Linkara
    avatar
    I nearly pissed myself when you did the whole character change bit where the character learned the true meaning of christmas. You always make me laugh. Keep it up. But i really need to go finish 52 because i didn't know booster golds little robot was evil or Rene Montoya becomes the next question or why she becomes that. I recognize these things but i don't know what significance they all had.

    So ... Countdown to Final Crisis has nothing to do with Final Crisis?

    ... weird.

    Great review, Linkara. I was kinda hoping you would say "I AM A MAN" when you were fighting. I'm sorry that you had to put up with all those Countdown comics.

    I have to wonder what reaction Terminator Linkara is going for...

    Great review, as always.

    @9:30 Well obviously Kyle Reiner was still under influence from Mary Marvel abusing him as a flail to have found that line funny.
  • DanManX
    avatar
    Awesome. That's...that's all there is to say. :lol:

    Mary Marvel's butt flew at me over fifteen times, and I liked it.

    But not Countdown though. It'd almost be funny in a Douglas Adams kind of way if that were it's intention. What I mean is that it was completely ignored for the super-comic it was building up to, but so many things happened and then were tossed away in such a backlash of Canon Discontinuity that it almost seems like fan fiction.

    Linkara, I don't know you personally, but until proven otherwise, you're a good man.

    I knew you'd bring up the orgasma rod, I was waiting for it :P ...seriously that is strange stuff. Countdown to me was a waste of time that I will never get back, thanks for nothing DC.
