So, are you saying the Rogues from Countdown are from another earth?

I won an award for drug awareness for my Captain Cold/Mirror Master issue. I'm just being a jerk.

Ok, i got the impression only Mirror Master did blow, and Heatwave was concerned about him doing those line because they were for the hookers. I kinda like MM being a cokehead, it was well portrayed in the Suicide Squad issue of CHECKMATE.

I found that moment out of place as well, but looking back at several issues, I took the whole "partying Rogues" aspect of the story as what they do when their leader isn't watching.

It made for an interesting display of team dynamics: Captain Cold, the leader, is off planning with Inertia. Abra Kadabra, always a loner, is off somewhere by himself. Heat Wave, Mirror Master and Weather Wizard are living it up in whatever manner they can, while Piper and Trickster try (and fail) to fit in.

And hey, congrats on the award! I hadn't heard about that!

It really bugged me to see Heat Wave even near drugs. Him burning people I'm ok with, but drugs... ummmm no.

I'm with you 100 percent.
 
There's a Flash section here? Where is it? ;-)

I also can't imagine Piper and probably Trickster pummeling a kid to death.

In fact, I can't imagine any of the older rogues doing that past Mirror Master II, Kadabra, and Zoom.

Big step back in the character development side of things, to me.

It was said that Piper was running after them to try and pull them off by Marc.

I always likes what Trey Parker and Matt Stone said about drugs. "People always ask us what we were on when we wrote certain epsisodes, and the answer is nothing. Have you ever tried to write something funny while high? The next day NOTHING you wrote is funny."

I can't imagine fighting the Flash with dulled reflexes would be a good thing either.

Yeah, I'm surprised that there wasn't a lot of head busting when cold showed up. And i'm surprised Heatwave was cool with it. Maybe it'll be the fall of one of the rogues later. Ohhh DrugBust!

Which all goes to my theory that something is wrong with New Earth since the Crisis and needs to be "fixed". The multiverse is back, but there are cracks in it. (i.e. Rogues doing drugs, Jimmy Olsen knowing too much, et al)

Which is why you must fix DC. At least the Flash books. Return to us, o saviour.

Dude, I was kind of miffed it was ignored in Countdown. I thought it made Captain Cold awesomer and made the Rogues seem legitimate/competent criminals.

And yes it's really me.
