Batman and the Outsiders #9 - Pages 6-7
Halo and Black Lightning already have access to school subplots (the former's solo tale this issue will show more, and there's always Dangerous Minds for BL), so why not give Geo-Force the same kind of opportunities? In the name of "variety", he'll enroll in Gotham Community College. COMMUNITY COLLEGE? Can't a foreign prince get into a more upscale school?!Also, Markovian schools don't have windows as high as three men end to end. Wait... MARKOVIAN UNIVERSITIES?! Last time we visited that craphole of a country, it looked like it was still in the middle ages! My guess was that princes studied out of the country. Guess not. And I do so hate it when international students get annoyed with their host country's realities. Dude, when you say "quiet and disciplined", all I hear is "fascist". You heard me, you pampered monarchist.
Oh yeah, and another thing about North Americans: We're jerks.
Filthy bohemian bearded students... Can't Geo-Force make a SINGLE American friend? Isn't there SOMEONE out there who doesn't immediately see through his royal veneer to the pathetic poser beneath? Yes, ONE:
Meet hot librarian en devenir, Denise Howard. She'll help Prince Brion enroll. She has no ulterior motive. None. (I haven't checked ahead, so I'm playing naive.) This girl has got it together. Not only does she know how enrollment works in these pre-Internet days (kids I work with today can't believe I lined up with pieces of paper and 4000 other students to get into my courses), but she's also already bought some of her text books. ORGANIZED! And she can tell he's going into a graduate program. World's Greatest Detective, or...?
Ah. The more likely "it's really obvious". Earth sciences? Well, at least he'll learn how to better use those powers of his. Maybe. He does know he'll have to write a thesis, right? Community colleges in New Brunswick are basically trade schools, so I didn't even know they had graduate programs, so I'm really not the best person to evaluate whether or not registration in all graduate programs would be done by two guys sitting at the same fold-out table. I'll let you decide.
Denise is taking Natural Science this quarter, another vague subject, and only for a short time... How do those graduate programs work anyway? And Geo-Force, well, he sort of brushes her off. GF doesn't need a GF.
Tomorrow: We check in with Katana and all things Japanese. Sadly, no Godzilla.
