Rann/Thanagar: A counterpoint

I am afraid that I must file a minority report in the statement of sides in the Rann/Thanagar Conflict.

While my more pacifistic compatriots have decided to support the cause of the peace loving Rann(ians? sters?), I make my bold claim that I stand by the side of Thanagar. I make this decision not lightly, nor simply to be contrary to Cronin and his "cajoling." My reasons for picking Thanagar are quite valid, and shall be outlined below.

First off, appearance. Thangarians look so much cooler than the Rannsters. It all basically comes down to the basic, age-old debate of wings vs. fins. Wings are infinitely better than fins, providing a much broader range of versitility. Fins, when you think about it, are quite pussy-esque in nature. What are the Rannsters going to do, swim at me? Please. Ah, but wings, on the other hand, are regal and majestic. From the soaring Eagles (Go Philly!) to the diving hawks, wings win without question.

Point the second. Military aptitude. Thanagar is basically a bunch of army dudes. Rann is a bunch of nerdy dudes. Plus Adam Strange. And maybe this is just me, but I highly doubt that one guy can take on an army. I mean, Thanagar has battalions and squadrons and brigades. There's just no competing with that.

Point number three. Relations with Earth. Yeah, ok, so Thanagar tried to invade us. At least they noticed us! When was the last time Rann did anything for Earth? I can't even remember getting a Christmas card from them last year. I mean, yeah, we kinda fell out of touch after college, and we both went our separate ways, but would a phonecall every now and again be too much to ask for? Would it Rann? Would it?

Ahem. In conclusion, Thanagar is the side that I pledge my allegiance to. Cronin and Whitmore be damned.

So eloquent! Bravo!

I shall quote this at my site!

By the way, guys...

think anyone at DC has any idea that "Rann/Thanagar" rather than the other summer series is generating the "heat" on blogs?
