YOUR COMICS-RELATED BLOG POST THAT MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD OF THE DAY: Dave Intermittent (from almost two months ago) on DC's The Great Ten: "I mean, c'mon: the Mother of Champions, who can, and I quote, "birth a litter" of superhumans every couple of hours? Why not just call her the Yellow Horde and be done with it. And no less than four characters who look like folks with homes on Zu, the Magic Mountain? This is like having an JLA made up of three cowboys, Scarface, and two rappers (which was, the lineup of JLA Detroit, of course)." Hehehehehee.

(And yes, Morrison's involved with The Great Ten, so there's a very good chance he's playing with our expectations of what Chinese superheroes should be like, or commenting on the one-child policy, or blah blah blah blah, but he may have gotten too clever for his own good with Mother of Champions.)
