I didn’t know this. It appears that J.K. Rowling is a huge racist, just look at her books. A bunch of white kids save their mostly white school from a bunch of bad guys. Wait, you say that isn’t enough to call her a racist? You need more? Well, how about a nice poem about how racist she is…

Everybody knows Harry Houdini, even today, nearly a hundred years after his death, he’s still a household name. He was a very interesting man with a very interesting life, and if they put half as much effort into this as they did The Hatfields and McCoys or as they are currently putting into Vikings, this could be an amazing show.

What would happen if X fought Y? It’s a terrible question when dealing with comics because the only correct answer is, “Who is writing and what does the story call for?” It doesn’t matter who the two fighters are, whether it’s Superman versus another high powered character like Goku, or someone without powers, like the Punisher, or even Deadpools geriatric “friend” Blind Al.
