What if Superman decided to be a real A-Hole. That's basically the gist of the story behind 'The Mighty'.

i just saw a tv series that was done in china called Heaven and hell and they stuck a pole down a man's throat as a way to kill him without showing any outward evidence as to how he died..... this is what I think of when I see this image.....

What do you mean he's being an a-hole. He's obviously giving the guy free dental work.

the light coming out of the victims nose is probably my favorite thing about this.
who publishes the mighty? I don't think I've seen it anywhere.

DC does. You should buy it because it's a great book.

They've already done that a couple times.

In Justice League Unlimited he's not just an a-hole, he's downright terrifying.

The penultimate answer to why we need morally sound heroes is the evil Superman.

This actually reminds me of an "Elseworlds" story D.C put out called "Silver Bullets".
In it, Kal-El was found by the Waynes instead of the Kents. This Bruce Wayne discovered his powers when his parents were murdered. The gist is that, this Batman was more brutal, liked melting crooks' faces with his heat vision.

Yeah, I know, it's not Superman but it dose remind me of the animated Justice Lords warped version of Superman. Lobotomized Doomsday.

Also, if the eyes of the other guy were rolled back a little, that would make it eerie. And there would be yellow smoke coming out of his mouth and nostrils.

me: ... am I the only person who finds this image absurd?
them: No.
me: So it doesn't make any sense to you, either.
me: It's a picture of Superman shooting his ... lampvision? Into what I think is Captain America's mouth.
me: I mean, that is just absolutely nonsensical.
me: Seriously, what are we even looking at?
them: And it's coming out his eyes.
them: I mean, if Superman was shooting stuff into someone's mouth, it would come out THE BACK OF THEIR SKULL
them: Because he's fucking Superman and HE WILL END YOU
them: HIS GOODWILL and a Kryptonite tranquilizer are all that stands between us and his totalitarian dictatorship.
me: Yes, exactly. That's why I had to conclude it was lampvision. because it's clearly not a laser.
me: But it is unpleasant enough to make that guy very unhappy.
me: Maybe it's a distasteful lamp.
them: He's self-conscious about his tonsils.
me: Like a lava lamp.
me: Yeah, maybe Captain America has strep or something.
them: "Don't look at me! My esophagus is hideous! I'm a monster! *sob*"
