Hey, just read this in a talk bubble. Guy is on the phone to some heroine...... "The situation
lady? Try chaos
! " (Comic books emphasis!)
How much better can it get?
back then, dc has think their audience as children, not as adults. so, not familiar with talk bubble or this situation, lady?, chaos ?
dc has been in man's world for long time. dc heroines downgrade so look the weakest sex of man's world's superheroes. from the beginning in 60's, marvel always make both male and females equal or women heroes are powerful. a good example, in the fantastic four, sue reed is the most powerful member of the group. like dc's justice league - superman is the most powerful , then wonder woman.
dc over has improve using more adult content for audience. back in the 60's, more childless storyline, but never try to adult themes.
in 60's, marvel beginning, the first twenty issues of " the amazing spider-man ". it's read like a soap opera, with real problems that peter parker had. the audience reading it, felt that marvel treat as adult. even those kids reading the comic books probably to young understand the adult theme. enough action in the comic book for them enjoy it.
the situation, the lady, or chaos is just regular formula use in a comic book in the 40's to 70's in a man's world.
