Calling All Flash And Wonder Woman Fans.

Calling All Flash And Wonder Woman Fans.

Over on Comicvine the following organised petition is taking place. I feel any true comic fan, who would like to see a Wonder Woman or Flash movie, and more done with DC characters outside of Batman and Superman will support our cause.

For Injustice Gods Among Us: Game Promotion, they´re holding a tournament of the best DC fighters.

I´m trying to get a large number of comic book fans to vote for Wonder Woman and Flash in the next round to show their popularity. In addition to voting for them in their next battles against Batman and Joker respectively, I am trying to organize a tweeting campaign on their message board, demanding more is done with DC characters outside Batman and Superman.

I´d like to make clear, I love Batman and Superman and have a huge collection of comics from both characters. This isn´t about our favorites or who we think would actually win.

This campaign is about showing us comic book and comic book movie fans support for characters other than Superman and Batman. By tweeting and voting for them, we can show they´re popular enough to hold their own movies, their own graphic novels, animated series or animated features. Wonder Woman especially needs our support, as the official policy of DC is now not to put out anymore animated films with female leads, even though Wonder Woman is now there fourth biggest selling title, and one of the most critically acclaimed features.

I´m pissed off with all DC´s excuses about characters not being relatable, or women can´t be leads in films, and all the other hog wash they use to jive the fans and stay in their insulated little comfort zone of Batman. For Batman fans as well, which includes myself, Rebooting Batman every five years is not going to do great things for the character I can assure you. It will get stale eventually. So why not use some of their other great characters. At the moment on Comicvine we are getting together to organise a time where we will all tweet together on the Injustice Gods Among Us message board, so as to flood the message board with requests from CBM fans - demanding things such as:

"We want a Batman Begins, Man Of Steel like Wonder Woman film"

"We want a Rucka written Earth One Wonder Woman Graphic Novel"

"We want a Wonder Woman/Flash Solo Movie, Animated Series, Graphic Novels Please."

"We want less Superman/Batman Animated Features, More Wonder Woman/Flash/Birds Of Prey etc Please"

If we can try and tweet and share this with people who want DC to get off their ass and do stuff for the rest of their great characters, Wonder Woman and Flash being the first, we should try. It may not be much, but it´s more affective than bitching all the time on this and other sites, having our wishes fall on deaf ears.

Please support the cause, it´s a good one.

Batman and Wonder Woman are next. It is a tall order to get her to win, so if you support this idea please let me know from replies, so we can organise a unified action. Also please share this with people you know agree. If you let me know how many people you´ve got to vote we can at least give Wonder Woman and Flash a fighting chance.

Well Batman won the fight against Wonder Woman. But at least the Flash won against the Joker!

#16 Posted by Bruxae (16801 posts) - - Show Bio

Indeed, dissapointing.. But I did get really happy Joker wont be taking it home atleast.

#17 Posted by jphulk26 (2033 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanks everyone, we tried. But atleast Flash won as you said, bittersweet, but we tried.

@Press Oblivion: @Bruxae: On the bright side, we´ve got a ton of fun as Batman fanboys try and explain how Batman would defeat a guy who can move faster than the speed of light. I really want to hear some of these excuses. :)

#19 Posted by Black_Claw (3366 posts) - - Show Bio

Dude you won't believe how many people were raging and making excuses for the Joker when Flash owned him. Lmao

@jphulk26: Tbh theres one reason and one reason only the Bat won.. The Dark Knight Trilogy.

Outside of comic book readers (the gaming crowd for once) people just dont know Wonder Woman well enough, so they will fanboy over the Bat and Joker.

@Bruxae: Well lets be thankful the Jokers fanboys didn't take home the gold this week.

#22 Posted by jphulk26 (2033 posts) - - Show Bio

@Black_Claw: Yeah thats true, Lex Luthor should have won; but I really don´t see how they can justify Batman beating Flash. Flash is in some ways the most powerful superhero there is according to physics. I mean I think Joker if anything has more of a chance to beat him than Batman if its down to planning. I mean Bats fighting skills has nothing to do with it, the only way he could win is through a strategy and Jokers probably as good if not a better strategist than Batman. He frequently twists Batman into his world of madness and is the only person who confounds Batman rationality and plans regularly.

@jphulk26: Those are some good points. I'm voting for Flash Next week, but in the end it's highly likely that the final fight will be Batman vs Superman. Largely, because of TDK trilogy and on top of that, Superman has a new movie coming out this year. But then again you never know, Flash surprised everyone today despite the large amount of Joker fanboys.

@Black_Claw: I´m voting Flash as well. I think he may have a good chance, cause more people are aware of his powers than WW. Her powers and abilities are a bit more complex and haven´t been depicted at anywhere near there real level in anywhere apart from the comics. Flash on the other hand is different, "swing voters" ;) (god this is getting serious) may well end up choosing Flash, cause really if you cant even see a guy, and he can be in an infinite amount of places all at the same time, you really can´t beat him, unless your Superman or Wonder Woman level power, that can one, nearly keep up with him and two, are durable enough to take the punishment. I´ve always said Flash is kinda probably one of the only guys in the league I´d think twice about in terms of someone who could beat the likes of Superman and Wonder Woman in a straight fight. Martian Manhunter being a far second, cause of his obvious weakness.

@jphulk26: Well, I hope Flash goes for glory! But then again, somethings telling me that Jokers fanboys might vote for Batman out of spite. Lol

#26 Posted by jphulk26 (2033 posts) - - Show Bio

@Black_Claw: True. Do you think Flash could beat Superman? what are your thoughts, just interested.

#27 Posted by comicace3 (9916 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll go for flash... not WW though.

#28 Posted by Black_Claw (3366 posts) - - Show Bio

@jphulk26: I don't know to be honest. Superman could put up a good fight for obvious reasons, but then again, Flash is capable of moving faster than the speed of light. Not to mention that his speed alone makes his attacks a lot more powerful and painful than they should be. On top of that, he can vibrate his molecules to make himself intangible, so even if super man decided to hit Flash with a long range attack like heat vision or ice breath Flash could either simply run to avoid it or phase right through it.

Plus, his powers can be very destructive if he decides to go all out. There was one episode in the old Justice League cartoon where Flash and Lex Luthor switched bodies and Lex used Flash's powers to do things such as create tornadoes and vibrate an objects molecules so fast so that they could explode. With that said I think it would be a pretty close fight.

@Black_Claw: My thought is this, Flash could beat superman killing him, in two ways, but both would involve a voluntary suicide or him paralyzing himself. 1. infinite mass one inch punch. He could literally punch supes out with a one inch punch at the speed of light or more, which would be 50 million million times the strength of a punch from Doomsday. That would kill superman, but considering, Flash´s body is as vulnerable as any human, that would also shatter him from the inside out. 2 The second again involves moving faster than the speed light, running so throwing his whole body into a single blow, but again, same problem, his body would not be able to with stand the force of the impact. Kind of like a car crash, it does a shit load of damage to the still thing it hits, but ends up pretty damaged in the process. Thats my thought anyway.

@jphulk26: But remember, Flash can also vibrate a persons or objects molecules to the point where the person/object could explode. So Flash could probably make Supes explode without suffering the type of recoil damage you've just explained.

@Black_Claw: good point.
