if male superheroes posed like wonderwoman

cool post on coelasquid the other day about the newest David Finch justice league cover featuring wonder woman posing rather provocatively. coelasquid, aka Kelly Turnbull, drew up an artist's rendering of male superheroes in the same pose.

more male superheroes wonder woman-ized at BleedingCool.

Riots in London

Croydon Shop fire
A 140-year-old furniture store burning.

Youths are rioting near me right now: Hackney, Tottenham, Clapham Junction, Ealing, Brixton, Lewisham, and basically every high street in London.

People are talking about it in Lavender Hill.

All the reporters on the BBC sound like they're running for their lives-- they keep explaining how impossible it is to get pictures of anything because the kids just keep popping up everywhere.

Clapham Junction Debenham's, on fire.
Right now the Debenham's I ride my bike past every day is on fire.

Lots of faraway sirens but it's way quieter than usual-- I think all the youth from my neighborhood are out rioting instead of shouting at each other, which is what they usually do.
