Will Emmons

Will Emmons thinks they should start calling her Powerwoman instead of Powergirl. She's the Chair of the Justice Society and she's been around since the '70s. He also wants to join Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters. Uncle Sam is clearly one of the top ten most bad ass superheroes. He hopes his friends don't think he's a sell out for joining a government-sponsored superhero team. He also knows that the coolest two regular members of the Justice League are the Flash and Zatanna.

Anti-Imperialist Dance Party! Funky and Fly!

UPDATE by Will Emmons: Just got back from this event and it went insanely well. Providence SDS showed up with an anti-imperialist funk machine in the form of two speakers in a shopping cart jury-rigged to a car battery and connected to someone’s mp3 player.  The funk machine was decorated with mad anti-war signs and flags. …

TWitM #23 rocks Race and the New Frontier

Justice League: New Frontier, the cartoon adaption of Darwyn Cooke’s instant classic about the dawn of the Silver Age of DC Comics, came out on DVD last week. When I was watching it, I was somewhat disappointed. My friends who hadn’t read the miniseries thought it was sweet, but I guess the actual comics ruined …

Left of the Left Says No to Nader

That left-wing nutjob David Segal gave us his two cents about Nader a couple days ago. Looks like Chris Maisano of the Young Democratic Socialists (a fine organization of wonderful left-wing nutjobs) is basically in agreement. Nader represents nobody but himself at this point in his career trajectory. He is not attached to any third …
