I think this post violates Godwin's Law. No, what I meant was, I HOPE this post violates Godwin's Law. Because clearly, Godwin needed to be violated.

I mean, his law. Yeah.

I initially had a Godwin's joke in here, but decided to just roll with the tenor of what's there, which is only slightly more exaggerated than what actually happens in these stories.

Because, having real all three of the books you sent me, I have come to the inescapable conclusion that the JSA are basically violence-prone lunatics who go around hitting people for frighteningly little reason.

I felt if I didn't, someone would, and it probably would be even less funny. One for the team.

Owning the whole run of that Archive, I cannot contest this conclusion.

Yeah, I'm getting that impression too. It really throws the All-Star Comics of the 70s into sharp relief, as it's clear that writing them as anything other than violence-prone psychopaths was a recent innovation.

Then again, maybe they were just projecting their unholy rage at having to drag around Johnny Thunder's stupid ass. I would.
