Digging stuff out from the archives..

A while ago I wrote about J'onn J'onzz getting genderswapped into Joan J'onzz.  I never did post a scan, so here we go:

It's not the most progressive thing in the world is it?   It is however, a fun read.  And in it's defence it tries to be satirical.

Changing tack slightly, I think more people should be made aware of the existence of the Beefeater.  He had a Sybil Fawlty like wife and was created so the JLE could feature a caricatured, inept, posh Englishman.  He looked like a fool:

Lastly, there was a delightful Tremors rip off.  If you liked Tremors may I recommend you track down and purchase Justice League Europe 24 and 25.  Particularly because the man controlling the giant worms also had a giant tuning fork ready to hum with your hatred.  I shit you not:

I was wondering why JJ/MM's pouty lips were so appealing on that cover. If he's a shape shifter that doesn't really look like a human anyway, why does he have to change gender to look female? Or am I just confused by the JL cartoon?

Oh, geez, the Beefeater. And to think I'd almost succeeded in forgetting about him.

Good thing J'onn wasn't genderswapped while Hal Jordan was leading the JLE!

@ Darius: I haven't seen the JL cartoon so can't comment on that.
I guess he doesn't have to actually change gender, and I guess more accurately I should write he's changing the outward appearence of his (human) sex.
You'd think he'd be able to find some better clothes tho.
@ Sea: Ha! I hadn't thought of that!

I have to admit that Guy Gardner was MUCH more attractive when HE turned into a woman. But yes, Sea has a very valid point. J'onn is just lucky Hal wasn't around, that's for sure.

I'm rather fond of the Beefeater. And I liked JLE, but man, I hated that Bart Sears art.
