And while we’re on the subject of DC Comics and Facebook, allow me to present to you DC Comics: 3 White, Straight, Able-Bodied, Angry Cis Dudes.
Says it all, really. And of these guys, two of them are rich (I’m assuming Arthur is, being royalty).
All I could think of when I saw this was this 1935 short entitled “Donkey Baseball”.
But before your peals of laughter subside from Manatee Baseball (with special guests octopus, whales, and turtle!), check out Aquaman’s cro-magnon expression:
I would play the fuck out of those walrus-riding water games.
If I don’t get pants, nobody gets pants.

CLARK GETS A CAPE AND BRUCE GETS A JACKET. HAHAHAHAHAHA. AND BRUCE’S BRA!I CAN’T. AND HAL’S DRESS OH GOD. HAHAHAHAAHAH. GENUIS.
And Wally gets the thong (Really, Hal should be the one to get the G string)
To continue my grumpy old internet man kick, but: what an awful cover. Not Gary Frank’s best, even if you ignore the awful relaunch costumes and focus on the blocking/posing. Say what you will about old homage covers, at least there was a story involved, rather than generic pin-ups. Also, this is apparently for the issue where they relaunch Captain Billy Marvel as SHAZAM! Because of reasons. Stupid reasons.
Supes looks like he got punched in the face and then his mouth froze that way.
One of the few good things about this cover is that it’s got Wondy in a pose you might find a male character in. But seriously, it’s completely undynamic, and doesn’t make me interested in whatever story it’s covering at all.
Also, Cyborg’s reboot costume is still unbelievably stupid and Superman needs his goddamn red underpants and old neckline back.
(And Bruce, crouching in the shadows only works if you’re in the shadows.)
Parting Shot: The Justice League — Without Pants
The two final covers for the Justice League of America #1 relaunch have been released at The Source, featuring the return to Wonder Woman’s swimsuit-style costume from from her previous redesign with full pants. While I tend to think shorts are a better sartorial choice for the Amazonian warrior, turnabout is still fair play, so I couldn’t help but be amused by this Photoshop by CA reader Mario Pieda imagining the rest of the JLA — sans pants.
Do you see now, DC? Do you see how stupid, how unmodern a speedo looks on a modern-day superhero? BRING BACK HER PANTS. — Ryking
Looking good, dudes.
Omg dying XXD
This is a thing of beauty.
(What gets me is that Vic’s original costume had no pants, so this is just a return to his roots for him)
