Conspiracies in comic books
So I am NOT a comic book kinda guy but I've been gettin into a lot of Batman recently with my friend (nothing better to spend my dough on) to study the Gordon dynamic (philosophy of justice and such) and I was reading Batman issue 493 (part 3 of the Knightfall story) and on page 11 Batman sneaks into a school and on the board is

"Political Scioence 101
1. Iran-Contra
2. Bohemian Grove
3. JFK"

and right by Grove there's a a lamp superimposed over the board and damn if it doesn't look like a beehive.

Got me thinkin about DMZ (which, no offense to it's fans, it's an action stinker), the Illuminati Marvel series (which I have not read) and other comic book conspiracies. I know Batman is laced with stuff (especially the DEATHBLOW paperback which includes a story about a CIA terrorist attack in Gotham) and even Batman Begins which focuses on an ancient, Orient based secret society using mind-control-based tactics to illicit pure panic justifying a martial law crackdown!

Any comments?

Fascinating! There certainly are a lot of nuances in comics. Who are your vavoriate villans, mine was always Catwoman and Poison Ivy.

I'll be honest, I'm a Gordon fan, my favorite issues are the ones that don't involve a "super-villian" such as Long Halloween and Dark Victory (along with the GCPD/Gordon/Gotham Central offshoots) but I LOVE the way they draw Poison Ivy in the Jeph Loeb issues, so far Bane is a monster badass, but Two-Face has to be the best with his backstory, character, and relationship to Gordon and Batman.

Oh, I agree. I love the way they drew Poison Ivy.

This is my favorite rendition:

I can't find a pic of my favorite, but it's the one where she looks like just a group of intelligent spores with eyes floating through the wind

I looked around a bit and I couldn't find it either, but speaking of spore(s), have you checked out the new video game Spore? I bought a copy, through haven't installed it yet as I have to upgrade by video card to play it. It is loved by many and is supposedly very addicting.

Here is the wiki for it.

I used to be a BIG BIG BIG nerd back in high school and swore pretty much all of that off in my senior year so I have not owned a video game since (and I split the costs of all the comics I buy with a friend and give them all to him since I just don't want to have shit pilin around) but I must admit it looks damn fun and addicting

Wow...thanks. That seems like a pretty interesting storyline. I gotta check that out.
My fathers been collecting comics since he was younger than me, and still does. Every month he goes to the comic store and they have a pile of new releases that he wants waiting for him. I'm gonna tell him to check that out.
Ive been reading comics for a long time. Im not particularly a fan of any specific story line or anything but I do read whatever interests me.
One thing Ive noticed about the comic universe, since waking up especially, they have a huge slant towards globalism/one world government.
Especially recently, the X-men and others like Iron Man, and other characters like Nick Fury, the leader of SHIELD, have been very much into propping up global government.
I was playing a recently made MARVEL game in which Fury's character even mentions that they are under the U.N., which I thought was always a US agency in the older comics- so I had to look it up. and it seems that theyve changed it...from wiki.:
Quote:(S.H.I.E.L.D)Usually led by Nick Fury as executive director (although he reports to a twelve-member council, whose identities even he does not know), this organization often operates as much as a covert agency as a quasi-military one, initially depicted as affiliated with the United States government. Later, S.H.I.E.L.D. was depicted as under the jurisdiction of the United Nations, with vast technological resources at its disposal, with U.N. General Assembly Resolutions and legislation passed in signatory nations aiding many of their operations.

Not only that but there was the recent storyline in 2006 of the Superhuman Registration Act, check it out-- in which the good guys (The Avengers) are called the Illuminati. One side wants all superhumans to be registered with special ID cards, and the other headed by Cpt. America think its a move against freedom, and from that, the Civil War starts.

I was an aficionado at a point in my past, not so much anymore, however I still revisit comics when I take care of my buddy's house while he's away (he's a huge collector). Recently I've been interested in NLP, hypnosis, etc., and in my research I came across this video:

NLP in E-mails

It got me to thinking about the lettering that is done in comic books. Every speech bubble invariably has bolded text in it - take the time out to notice those words in the speech bubbles that are bolded or italicized....reading the Annihilation series I noted that most of the bolded words are very dark - DEATH, HATE, DESTROY, WAR, etc. Interested to hear what your experiences are with the books you're reading.

Your unconscious mind has been warned....

Oh yeah, they pick and choose very carefully, the strong words, I do wonder how much of the comic industry is invested in doomsday conditioning or warping religious thought
