I'm back! Where was I, you ask? In ur base, killin ur d00ds. Sucker.

I hope to resume a reasonable update frequency now. To start with, here are Derek's latest two Smallville fivers, "Sneeze" and "Wither." Enjoy.

When you're done, you should probably check on your d00ds.

Oliver: Ha! I was the one behind Lex's kidnapping! I'm also really good with the bow and arrow. Not that the two have any connection really....
(Oliver shoots arrows at the Daily Planet at Ludicrous Speed)


Green Arrow?

Yep. After repeated attempts by the producers of Smallville to introduce Bruce Wayne/Batman, which were constantly nixed by the powers that be because they were afraid of it interfering with Batman Begins (However that works), the Smallville producers decided to just give up and use Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. Not a bad idea, really, considering pre-1970s Green Arrow was basically a Batman clone, complete with Arrowmobile and Arrowcave. So any story ideas they had for Batman are probably going to be moved to GA.

Now whether GA will keep his post-70s ideology is yet to be seen.

I hope he does -- it's become integral to the character. Almost as integral as his being an enormous jackass (but still very much a hero). He could make a good foil for Clark.

what ideology was that? I never kept up too closely with the various characters, especially when they got rebooted so many times.

^ I was wondering about that, too. I only vaguely remember Green Arrow, and that was pre-70s anyway.

Thanks for bringing the Bat-Embargo up, no matter how covertly.

I'm not terribly familiar with all things Green Arrow, so what I'm about to say is a summarized form of Wikipedia (whose depth of knowledge about comic book characters is somewhat frightening).

Initially, Oliver Queen/Green Arrow was a Batman clone. Unashamedly so. To the point of them having Oliver Queen meet Bruce Wayne early in his career and decide to mimic Bruce's shtick. Sincerest form of flattery and all that.

Finally, DC decided that, hey, maybe we should have the much less interesting second banana do something else. So Oliver Queen, billionaire (just like Bruce Wayne), lost his fortune. After slumming for a bit, he kind of got a shift of perspective and changed party affiliations from Republican to Democrat. Okay, not really, but sort of. He's definitely more on the political left than others, and certainly more outspoken.

As for what Smallville will do, who knows? Nothing creative certainly. I suspect they'll have him be the Bruce Wayne lookalike for all their Batman storylines they've got locked away, and then if the character's still interesting, they might have him lose his fortune. Or not. Meanwhile he'll continue to pursue Lois, and Clark, who has shown zero romantic interest in Lois, will start up the good ol' angst machine because he apparently wants all the girls of the show for himself, whether he's interested in them or not.

Um, </rant>, apparently.

Don't be absurd. He's an archer, not a fencer.

Wonder if Steve Bakula bumped into him on his time jaunts them.

I have a soft spot for obscure and inane puns.

Yes?

(I know far too many Steves, and a disproportionate number of them are also Steve Ms)

Steve Bakula=Jonathan Archer actor. Sheesh, it's not like I haven't had a joke echo in a full house or leave a bad taste in people's ears before, but come on! Is my wit that obscure? Does it take that much of a leap to get the joke?

PS: There is another subtle reference in that last paragraph. Places everyone, places! Take two!

A quantum leap is actually not that big, you know.

Yeah.

See, that was where I was getting hung up: trying to understand the significance of the substitution of "Steve" for "Scott"...

...and getting nowhere.

Yikes, I'm fallable! My "wit" gored me! There's nothing left for me but to slash...MY PRICES!

Hey, if you gotta have a tacky death scene, steal from Friends.

The joke still stands, though.
