The Authority #15|
Greetings,scans_daily! New poster here. For my first trick I thought I'd share some of the latest The Authority. Yes, that comic no body reads any more!

|runespoor7's post of Jason Todd talking to Mia Dearden led to a thread discussion about billionaire vigilantes beating up poor criminals. |
A panel from THE AUTHORITY: TRANSFER OF POWER shows that at least a few comic creators are aware of this.

Fulfilling My Own Request|
So since I heard that there was an awesome-tearjerky scene regarding Apollo and Midnighter (one of my favorite couples in comics) in the most recent run of The Authority I have been impatiently waiting for someone to upload scans. When I was at my local shop on Thursday, I decided to see if I could find it. And lo and behold, in the Authority #3 I found it. And it is everything everyone promised.

The Authority - Halloween Hijinks with the World's Finest Couple|
I feel an urge to spread some Apollo/Midnighter love, so here's a few random pretties from various places, plus a snippet from The Breaks, which is one of the other stories in the Earth Inferno and other Stories TPB.
For anyone not familiar, Apollo and Midnighter are part of the Authority, a team of superheroes who strive for a finer world by tackling not only supervillians and alien threats, but also the injustices that humankind perpetrate on each other. The two were originally conceived as Superman and Batman equivalents, hence the resemblance, with the added wrinkle that they're a canon couple. They're now married, in a wedding that took the rhetoric of "could they be more gay?"and considered it a challenge, and have an adopted daughter, Jenny Quantum, who's the spirit of the 21st Century. I am more than a little charmed by the notion that the spirit of the 21st century is being raised by two dads. And here's living proof that Apollo is like the best dad ever:
They also let their daughter smoke and wear ugg boots, but let's not go there.
