Better put this up right in front: when I keep using phrases like "the ninety-nine percent" in the Dark Knight Rises segment, I am, believe it or not, at least subconsciously aware that principal photography had already been completed (or, at least, was very nearly completed) at the time such OWS-derived language entered the common parlance; certainly I should have chosen my words more carefully. Nonetheless, I think my broader point about the film's political point of view -- a pean to the necessity of authoritarian force upon an unruly, largely stupid population base, for that base's own demonstrated good -- remains applicable even with its anachronistic use of terminology. Sorry, and enjoy!

I think the key to contemporary Ennis is his second Nick Fury miniseries, Nick Fury: Peacemaker. It basically states his current obsessions right-out. The futility of special forces/individuals and their need for never ending war.

You're probably right; I think it gets overlooked since it (a) dropped right in the midst of Punisher MAX, and (b) hews *very* closely to the War Story/Battlefields style, if longer in duration. The present Fury is kneaded into the now-concluded Punisher MAX style, which I think makes it more visible... or, as visible as an out-of-continuity Marvel comic for Mature Readers is likely to get... but yeah.

That's a great point. It's been too long since I've read Peacemaker anyway. Thanks man.

Superman in David Gordon Green's "George Washington".


You see, everyone was making Terrence Malick jokes and I was all "THIS LOOKS NOTHING LIKE JACK FISK, NOTHING," as the tears dripped down, down, salting my popcorn. [FIN]

I still think it looks like Glazer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mze1YggXyew
