Aquaman is often called the worst, or most useless, of all the mainstream superheroes.
He is the butt of many jokes in TV Shows & an comic books.
Even the Batman: The Brave & The Bold animated series portrays him as an arrogant buffoon.

I think a big part of the problem is that his PR person went against the idea of creating a theme song for him.
I can see why though. I mean, have you ever tried singing underwater?

Batman's next challenge is teaching Supes to put URLs directly into the address bar, and not the Google search.

I have been told that there are some people who won’t understand this comic.
Although that is nothing new for me, I thought it might be good to explain this one a bit.

The joke in this comic is based on a very iconic scene, from the first “Superman” movie, which starred Christopher Reeve in the role of Superman. Lois Lane gets killed when her car falls into a hole created by a massive earthquake. She dies, buried in her car in the desert. After finding Lois Lane dead, Superman flies around the Earth’s perimeter so quickly that it reverses the planet’s rotation. After time has rewound to an appropriate point, Superman returns the planet to its original direction.  Lois is now alive again, as are the others who may have perished in the earthquake, and he can then save her before the accident occurs.

Push off

If superheroes had Push Notifications turned on, they would never get a moments rest.

Some heroes do have the equivalent of push notifications via “emergency notification” signalling devices that can be used in times of need. The only ones I can think of are:

  • Batman (via Bat signal and the Hotline in the Commissioners office)
  • Superman (via that silly watch he gave to Jimmy Olsen)
  • The JLA (via the JLA signal devices)
  • Fantastic Four (via the FF Flare gun)
  • Atom Ant (via his mainframe computer)

I am sure there are more than these in comic world.

Push notifications are the annoying little voices that you let into your life via your smartphone.

Most apps these days will politely request if they can send you notifications.
They ask so nicely, that you think “Sure, why not?” and hit OK.
THEN they start their devious work.

They remind you about upgrades. They tell you what friends are doing. They let you know if you are popular enough to have recieved a tag or a message. And they NAG.

That is really what they are doing. It is electronic nagging and you get used to it.
I believe this is only the first step in preparing humans to accept robot wives or husbands in the future. Bythe time they exist, we will already have been conditioned to do what they say. Of course, WE will think that we are the ones incontrol.

This will not be the thruth however, and when the machines finally take over, we won’t even notice….
