Timing, part eleven.

Was that too far? Well, we'll see, the discussion isn't over yet.

I set these strips up, um, a couple of months ago. Then I couldn't get online, and then I spread them out a bit; and then the other day I was reading an issue of Trinity where Vixen asks if other JLA'ers have counterparts on Earth-3, or Earth-Evil. ("Tricksy? White Lightning?") Wonder Woman points out they probably don't, since the Crime Syndicate/League/Trinity whatever doesn't especially care for competition. Of course, at least once we have seen other evil counterparts--I know they appeared in a Justice League Quarterly, and I'm positive that's in continuity...oh, you can't see me rolling my eyes.

How about this: in the regular earth, the Trinity consider Beetle and Booster a bit annoying, a little embarrassing, and probably wouldn't volunteer to spend time with them; so on the evil Earth that's bizarro-reversed: Ultraman, Owlman, and Superwoman love the evil Blue and Gold. Hey, it makes at least as much sense as the evil money. They had the money with Benedict Arnold, right?

The idea of an evil, yet competent Booster and Beetle simply boggles the mind. And yet...what hi-jinks could ensue!

Merry Christmas!

They're just bad at being bad.

You just gotta love those two guys, no matter which universe they come from.
