I definitely see what you mean. Although I can't fault them for it. Ultimately the entire story is essentially the fractured Justice League creating a tyrannical justice system to control the whims of everyone. For the reader, you're not necessarily supposed to like it. Particularly when Superman is the antagonist and The Flash is a failure of a superhero.

It's really not, they are despotic rulers and the antagonists of the series, you are supposed to disagree with them because their methods are extreme and retarded i.e. a "thing is bad, people do thing, let's kill people" mentality over petty acts
The only way this is politicising is by posting it out of context and having it portrayed as if what Flash said is right.

Just because the Flash is winning does not mean that he is "Right" all it means is that superman is now distracted and thinking about what he said, where as flash is free to just play chess. its proof that he is thinking.

That may or may not have been the author's attention, and it might be contextualized to clarify on later pages. however, this is the first time i've seen this explanation, and i've always thought of it as the author character in this comic. Even if I think guns are neat, I thought of the comic as shitty.
My most compelling argument for the game of chess being intended as a metaphor is that if it wasn't, they'd be doing the ever popular running around at the speed of sound^12034971349587 thing. The chessboard also has a lot of tradition as metaphor for out of the game intellectual competition. with the exception of the Robert Downey Jr sherlock movie, where he intentionally loses the game, to buy more time , you never see the one who loses the chess game win the debate.

Flash is pointing out a flaw in superman's logic.
Its not a political view.
#14 - anon (02/16/2016) [-]
I can't say I ever personally took much notice to the Flash winning the chess game repeatedly to be a metaphor.

That said, I don't agree with your first statement about this being 'objectively right' politically. It's established very early on that Superman is no longer the pioneer he usually is. . So although this is definitely political talk, it doesn't say anything about the moral standing because Superman and The Flash no longer possess the moral authority to decide that.

Not objectively right obviously. They are having a debate or argument. Both are giving their opinion which means it's subjective. And in the argument the side that the author is on, which seems to be The Flash as he is getting the final say and making points that throw Superman off his feet, causing him to lose at chess, is being portrayed as the one that is "winning."

I suppose it seems almost like a straw man.

"political comics"
Dude, that whole thing is essentially based around that Superman is huge fuck-up goes crazy and enslaves earth thinking he's doing the right thing with Flash, Cyborg, Robin and Wonder Woman supporting him because they are too idiotic to understand what's going on but simply because "hur he's superman he knows what's good"
Anyway what I'm trying to say is that Injustice "Let's kill an established character every issue" Gods Among Us isn't political but absolutely hilarious

This is political. Even if it's in a fictional universe it is talking about real world issues. I'm not implying the entire comic i political, but this section is. Especially when posted alone and out of context like this.

I know what you mean - seems to me the only way people of all nations will stand together is is they all have a common enemy or alien species to be wary about together - I call it "The Watchmen Conundrum"

I think that even in the midst of an alien invasion, we'd still be racist, bigoted idiots. People don't change.

True, but discrimination is relative, people used to descriminate based on culture within their race, then globalization happens and now instead of "frank or celt" its "white or black" when we discover aliens white or black will seem paltry in comparison to "my own species or xelbolb the 5 legged slug alien"
#93 - sirquidam (02/11/2016) [-]
You'd be surprised what fear does to people. End of world, end of everything you know, and possibly the end of your own life. Some people would try go out by finishing everything they want to do before dying, some would take up arms and resist, some might try to barter with aliens. You'd be seeing lot of people turning into complete opposite of what they were, both good and bad.

Human nature is complex thing, but one thing that we can reliably predict. Nobody fucks with planet Earth except for us.

Why would a more advanced alien race want to enslave other races, when machines can do the same work as slaves exponentially better and more efficiently?
User avatar
#240 - sirquidam (02/12/2016) [-]
Enslave, no. Harvest, yes. It's only reason I can think of why aliens would come here, perhaps Earth or human body possess something they find valuable.

For now, anyway.


The most difficult thing about invading another star system and taking it over is actually just getting to that star system, destroying all inhabitants of every solid surface in the solar system would be a cake walk by comparison.

This is something I always think. For some reason, we always prefer anger and hatred as a unifier.

Because people seriously underestimate the power of being fucking pissed. It's so powerful it can overpower your self-preservation instincts and make it so all your other emotions basically don't exist. No love, no regret, no fear, no pain, you don't even care about your own life, there is only rage and the desire to fucking destroy the thing that caused said rage. And if someone is helping you do that, you couldn't give less of a fuck about their race, nationality, religion or anything other than the fact that they are not the thing you want to destroy.

Seriously, it's powerful stuff. People always keep going on and on about the power of love, but I've never seen love give someone the ability to completely ignore broken bones and bleeding wounds.

Totally agree. I actually had this thought earlier today.

Countless wars have been fought throughout history in part to create a common enemy for the people and thus unite the population. Tribes used to wage war against other tribes, thus strengthening the sense of community. Countries have waged war against other countries, which united the population. But where do we go now? A continent vs. another one? No. We need an extra-terrestrial enemy to truly unite humanity.
