Remember the days of when DC Comics would micromanage Wildstorm's Authority, leading to plenty of post-production censorship? So we got this kind of thing.

Authority-13-splice-1 Authority-13-splice-2

My bread and butter back in the day, that was.

Sadly these days, it just goes ahead. Such as the Suicide Squad short in the back of Convergence: Flash… set in Eastern Ukraine…


Where the Russians have placed Rocket Red military tech.


Ripped out of the headlines like a beating heart. This is not your Paul Levitz DC Comics. But there's no way this could actually spark an international incident is there? Probably not.

Now do North Korea.
