Parasha: Sandman, December 17th reading


Well, no time lost in Dee's making use of his little trinket, is there? Although I'm wondering how that especially helped him to escape, or if even it was just a matter of him deciding that that was a good time for it.

"I'm going to rule the world. Or destroy it." Nothing like keeping your options open, eh? And the whole little abnormal normalcy going on there is... creepy.

If the escape from Arkham doesn't set the tone for this particular segment, then Dee's ride does. Man... just... *shiver* Hrm, does it count as Stockholm Syndrome if the "hostage situation" is basically a carjacking/murder?

Gotta love how Dream appears to J'onn. I bet THAT would be a lot harder to disguise on the London subway. Also like the mention that "it's kind of hokey" when we're talking about a collection of trophies that a) a league of superheroes has taken and b) contains the powerful dream ruby that Dream is there for in the first place.

"I have a secret stash of oreos of which you are welcome to partake." I just love that for whatever reason. :)

The moving-across-the-city in dreams is rather nice, I thought, and fits in well with the particular chapter name of course. And I would love to hear the stories behind some of those trophies.

Notes:

The man that Dr. Dee is talking to during his escape is Dr. Johnathon Crane, aka The Scarecrow, one of Batman's villains.

The "Scott Free" fellow that Dream wakes and talks to is apparently Mister Miracle, although I don't know any more than Wiki Pete tells me about him!

J'onn J'onzz, the "last Martian" that they go to see, is also known as the Martian Manhunter.
