Oh Billy, you look so small right there…
Superman’s sheer anger over Billy Batson’s situation is a sight to behold. Batman and Robin get away with it because he knows it’s the world’s best internship and that Bruce is willing to put out all the stops to protect him. But Billy? He doesn’t have anyone looking out for him. And that pisses off Superman more than anything.
Seriously, Clark’s face here
He is ready to kick the ass of whoever put this boy in this situation SO HARD
Next page he really lets the Wizard Shazam have it.
Shit, son. I might have to buy this book for those last two panels alone.
When Superman is written well he is an amazing goddamned character.
these few pages are some of my favourite in comic book history. So good. For anyone wondering what the next few pages look like, here you go:
This is a bigger deal than some of you might think, because Superman is one of the heroes in the DC Universe who keeps his secret identity pretty damn secret, because as probably the most powerful and influential person on earth, a lot of people do not wish him well - and would jump at the chance to hold people dear to him as leverage.
Yet, he trusts this poor, scared little kid. To comfort him, and entrust him with his biggest secret - just as Billy did for him.
Superman is just really important, ok?
this for people to truly understand superman
I DID MATH FOR THIS.
SO I FUCKING CALCULATED WHAT THE ODDS ARE OF DRAWING THE 10 SAME FUCKING CARDS THAT YUGI ALWAYS FUCKING USES (DARK MAGICIAN, LIVING ARROW, THAT FUCKING TRIBBLE CARD + THE MULTIPLIER, MIRROR FORCE, CURSE OF DRAGON, GAIA THE FIERCE KNIGHT, CELTIC WARRIOR, MAGICAL HAT, AND THE STUPID BOX TRICK)
AND FOR ONE GAME (ONE FUCKING GAME!!!!!!!!) THE ODDS ARE 1 IN 92 279 716 000 000 000.
SO DOING THAT LIKE EIGHT FUCKING TIMES IN A ROW ARE SO ASTRONOMICALLY IMPROBABLE THAT IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED IMPOSSIBLE
DO YOU KNOW WHAT WAS CONSIDERED “IMPOSSIBLE” IN YGO? ASSEMBLING EXODIA. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE ODDS OF DRAWING EXODIA ARE?
1 in 658 008!!!!!!!
SO IT IS INFINITELY MORE LIKELY TO DRAW ALL FIVE PIECES OF EXODIA ON THE FIRST DRAW THAN IT IS TO DRAW THE CARDS THAT YUGI USES FROM THE FUCKING GET GO ALL THE GODDAMN MOTHERFUCKING TIME
I’M CALLING SHENANIGANS ON THIS BULLHONKY.
