I just replied to this, so let me instead point out why Batman should not be okay with killing. He’s very much a victim of deathly violence firsthand. From his point of view, death traumatized him and he understood what it truly is to lose the most important people in his life. He was the survivor in that shooting and he will never get to see the ones he loves ever again. And he doesn’t want that feeling on anyone. No matter how satisfying, no matter how many other lives it MAY save in the future, to take a life would ultimately make him no different than the criminal who casually and callously took the lives of the people he loved most.
Superheroes are ultimately about hope for a better world. Batman, for all his skulking about and brooding and issues and whatnot, is ultimately just trying to create a world where an 8 year-old doesn’t lose their parents like he did.
that moment when dean had a full on panic attack
He didn’t have panic attacks at any other point. This is the one. He freaked out sometimes, but literally the only thing that can send Dean Winchester into a panic attack is his Baby being missing.
The Impala is Dean’s home, his only home. This is like walking down your street and finding that your house has burned down.
Yeah, and Dean’s already experienced THAT trauma too.
At least this time he didn’t stop TALKING…
ha ha, i love Bela Talbot :)
I just saw this on the Welcome to Night Vale tvtropes page. This pun is perfect, and I hate and despair and love this perfect pun in equal measure.
oh. my. fucking. god.
well, fuck me sideways.
I see what you did there Joseph Fink
Omg, the top panel is really well-known (because it’s precious), but I had no idea the entire scene is so cute! Love idea of Superman doing stuff like this to make people happy, that’s so him. And Dick’s smile in the last panel.
