killer penguins: a proud JLA tradition
So, recently maslego posted a battle from Blue Beetle where Jaime and Guy fight a flock of killer penguins.
but this isn't actually the first time in the modern era where the JLA went up against these deadly swarming nightmares of the Antarctic. .
oh, they so ARE part of the Justice League.
The Injustice League decides to try one last big heist, but things get a little out of their hands:
don't you just hate it when your diamond heist is ruined by another villain team?
Major Disaster decides to make the best of things, work is still work:
and Max is devious:
Shenanigans follow which mainly consist of snark and slapfights. Skipping ahead:
G'Nort calls in the rest of JLAnt, where they stumble across an old crackly video, as you do in these situations:
Other teammembers Scarlet Skier and Big Sir are still outside:
Max gets worried:
and sends in back-up:
unfortunately, neither Blue Beetle (Ted) nor Guy Gardner were part of the ground crew for this mission, so there is no page I can put in direct response, but you get the idea.
did you know:
penguins are universally carnivorous predators?
smaller species live on krill, larger, on squid and fish.
while all species of penguin are native only to the southern hemisphere, they are widespread across all latitudes, from the temperate Galapagos Islands to frigid Antarctica. (YOU CAN RUN, BUT YOU CANNOT HIDE.)
Micheal Phelps swam the 200 meters in 1 minute 4Emperor penguins, on average, swim at about 6.7 mph and have been observed at 8.9. (NVM YOU CAN'T EVEN RUN. well, run, yes, but YOU CAN'T SWIM.)
depending on the species, a single colony can range up to several hundred thousand pairs.
some ancient species were the size of humans. HP Lovecraft drew inspiration from this when he wrote "At the Mountains of Madness". No, really.
Unfortunately most penguin species, especially the arctic ones, are seriously threatened by global warming:
Penguin Decline in Antarctica Linked With Climate Change
King Penguins Declining Due to Global Warming
Climate Change To Devastate Or Destroy Many Penguin Colonies
Future generations may only get to see these vicious predators in the zoo, or worse, in books or old footage.
