Fact: Pied Piper is the best reformed villain in comics and the best gay character in comics as well.
>>107606520>You can tell the joker is gay, there arz signals, he kills peopleHow did they get away with this ???
>>107606555It was a different time.
>>107606555It's to set up the punchline, that being Wally, who was talking up about "signals" didn't catch on to the fact that Piper was gay.
say what you want about countdown but I did like his friendship with Trickster
>>107606520Why did Wally think the Joker was gay?
>>107607631Because he is colorful.
>>107607631Wally was originally extremely conservative. It was an established part of his character, considering he grew up in the midwest.
>>107607631Because apparently there were rumors. I wouldn't be surprised why there were, considering the stuff the Joker keeps doing in the comics. He hadn't showed any interest in women by that point. And even after Harley Quinn was created, he still stayed a lot more focused on playing with Batman rather than her.
>>107606555Are you a fucking moron?
>>107606520Would Hal beat his face in if Pied Piper was his villain? Hal Jordan is a conservative.
>>107607631He's a sadist and a psychopath
>>107606520>Wally pretending he knew the whole time>Piper enjoying making him feel awkwardThese two are wonderful
>>107608683>>107606520what is this sjw shit2016 is the year the world ends i swear to god
>>107608714Their reluctant team-up in Countdown was one of the very few things I kind of liked about that shitty comic. The moment they killed one of them off was the moment I quit reading.
>>107606520Messner-Loebs is the best Flash writer
>>107608784Literally if they dropped the endless gay jokes and remembered that James and Hartley were already pretty friendly with each other and he had been out for years in continuity already that part of the book would've been the best part of the whole weekly
>>107608784That part pissed me off too. I'm just glad they eventually brought him back.Never did care for Axel that much.
>>107608784The only good part of Countdown was Piper blowing up Apokolips.
>>107609230>Blowing up ApokalipsWhy? And How? I didn’t read Countdown.
>>107609238You should read it! It's great!
>>107609289What issue then? I don’t wanna read that entire dungheap of a series. I just wanna know why and how.
>>107609303Don't listen to him, Countdown is infamously terrible
>>107609303You need to start at issue one. It might be a long read but it all comes together nicely at the end. It's worth it.
>>107607631Have you seen the way Batman and him interact?
