Among the questions Chris and Matt take on this week is one about a hypothetical crossover called Blackest Friday:
CHRIS: I would want it to be all of the holiday characters that were killed off in a crossover that we never saw. Because you know that, like, just as DC has a list of characters that it’s okay to kill that the Martian Manhunter is constantly on top of, if they were publishing Christmas comics, they would have a similar list. Santa is not going anywhere. Rudolph, which they did publish back in the ’70s, is not going anywhere. But Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey? Dead. Little Drummer Boy? Dead. Cricket on the Hearth? Dead. So I would think it would be all of those third-tier Rankin & Bass characters that, in a crossover we never saw, got killed by the Heat Miser, and then they come back and Santa has to fight them just like in Dreamworks’ Rise of the Guardians, in theaters now.
MATT: My idea would be just using strictly DC superheroes. All of the Justice League is trapped inside whatever department store DC wants to partner with, we’ll say Target. They’re all inside a Target, and the staff has all been killed somehow by some mysterious force. The doors are set to open at 5 AM, and there are hordes of Black Lanterns outside the doors pounding on them to get inside the Target. It’s up to the heroes over the next three hours to stack up enough hot merchandise to keep them at bay so they can escape.
CHRIS: A couple questions.
CHRIS: Why is the Justice League trapped in a Target? I’m pretty sure even the worst Justice Leaguer could get out of a Target. Geo-Force could get out of a Target.
MATT: I guess the Black Lanterns have pushed them towards the Target to the point where they had to go inside and now they’re totally surrounded. It’s like a zombie movie scenario, and we sort of have to ignore the fact that Superman could fly everyone out through the ceiling. That’s the situation I envision.
CHRIS: Second question: When you say they need to stack up hot merchandise, do you mean to form a physical barrier, or like an obstacle course of bargains that the Black Lanterns would get distracted by?
