Detective Comics #241 March, 1957

"I must do this because of reasons. And things.”
Batman - as a character, mythos, story - used to be Hella fucking stupid, until Neal Adams and Denny O’Neil did right by him. Then Frank Miller got all the credit they deserved when Batman became fuckin’ Batman.

A Memorial Inscription’s Grim Origins

The preview text is a bit misleading as well. There are no questions. In the context of the original quote, it’s undoubtedly inappropriate.

The short version: this isn’t some ode to victims of savagery or brave soldiers heading into battle. It’s spoken to the perpetrators of a heinous crime in advance of their punishment. The context, then, isn’t that they won’t be forgotten for their sacrifices. It’s that their actions were so heinous that they will be defined by them, and their punishment will reflect that.

Sometimes, just sometimes, sentiment is enough. Other times, context matters.

It matters here because thousands of people were murdered by zealots. Zealots that were motivated a combination of historical ignorance and contemporary malice.

In that sense, there are few quotes that could be less appropriate.

Unused cover painting for the CAPTAIN AMERICA MOVIE ADAPTATION by Joe Jusko, 1989

Just a reminder that:
There was a movie adaptation of “Captain America” made in 1989.
It starred J.D. Salinger’s son as Captain America. Seriously.
J.D. Salinger’s son was a black hole of charisma in the role.
One of the main threads of the movie was Cap pretending he was going to be sick so someone would pull over, then he would run back to the car and steal it.
There was a comic book adaptation of all this. Which means…
Someone had to write and draw, in comic form, the heroic Captain America pretending to be carsick over and over again and stealing cars.
FWIW, with it being WrestleMania weekend I’ve been working/on-call and haven’t had a chance to go see the new Cap movie. But I bet Chris Evans doesn’t pretend to be carsick so he can steal cars.

For immediate release!
Marvel and DC officially announce the return of THE AMALGAM UNIVERSE!
For the first co-publishing venture in over a decade, Marvel and DC have come to an agreement to bring back The Amalgam Universe, a universe comprised of ‘amalgam characters’ of some of the most beloved superheroes of the two most exciting comic book publishers in the entire world.
 Spinning out of the events of Forever Evil and Original Sin, The Amalgam Universe is a brand-new, 12 part maxi series by super scribes Geoff Johns and Brian Michael Bendis with artwork by Olivier Copiel, Bryan Hitch, John Romita jr., Alex Maleev, Mike Deodato jr., and comics legend John Byrne, making his long awaited return to mainstream comics.
The Amalgam Universe will be published biweekly this September with many of your favorite regular comics ‘going dark’ for the duration of the series.
"The fallout from The Amalgam Universe is so big to both comic book universes, the changes so overwhelming, that you won’t recognize most of your favorite titles at the end of it.” said Bendis.
 When asked: why now? Both publishers, in a joint statement said: because announcing it tomorrow just isn’t that funny.
 Stay tuned for more details.
 

Bolded emphasis is mine.
Love it. Even if it’s cheating by doing it a day early, I still love it.
