On one hand, I was thinking -prompted by the recent discussions about Babs' disability- it might be cool to have a community or at least a series of posts devoted to the technological, scientific, economic and political aspects of the DCU (and perhaps other universes in comics). Issues of technological diffusion, international relationships, political structure, law, finances... all of those topics fascinate me in the real world, and no doubt would be extremely interesting to consider in the context of comics.

On the other hand, the DCU just doesn't make any *sense*, technologically or economically. At all. The inconsistencies between what they are capable of, technologically, and what they do, are so staggering that the community would soon devolve into long, increasingly rambling posts of incoherent geeky rage. If you aren't ready to deal with the implications of advanced technology, don't write it into your fictional world. Sheesh. It's like establishing emotional and professional ties between a character and other characters, then killing her gruesomely and have most everybody else never mention her again.

Oh, wait. Right.

So I won't touch the issue anymore. Much. At least in public.

See? Proactive stress avoidance: demonstrated!
