What is it with American writers destroying Europe these days? Last week in Flashpoint #1, we saw that hundreds of millions of Europeans had been plunged into the sea after Atlantis attacked the continent, and all thirty-two million Britain's men had been genocidally massacred by Wonder Woman's new empire.
And this week, in Invincible Iron Man #504 from Marvel Comics, tracking the ear Itself Hammer than fell on France, Iron Man discovers it has been claimed by the Grey Gargoyle (remember this), that all the Parisians have been turned to stone and the resultant sight smashed up hundreds, if not thousands of stone Frenchmen.
So even if, and it's a big if, Iron Man does find a way to turn stone back into flesh and blood, thousands will remain in fleshy lumps.
You're telling me.
I always get rankled by Americans verbally abusing the French. They're the people we're supposed to verbally abuse. What do they think Mexico and Canada are for?
