Assuming, of course, you have a lick of sense and thus expected them to be terrible. First of all, they’re not called “Fatalities,” as we knew, but instead are called “Heroic Brutalities” which is actually so ridiculous and nonsensical it’s a little awesome.
Unfortunately, the actual moves don’t match up. The Flash runs around in a circle, makes a little hurricane, and then punches his opponent, which would be lame as a regular special movie. Green Lantern, meanwhile, creates an energy ball around his foe, then shrinks it violently, which manges to be both visually unexciting and still far more violent than just killing him, since it clearly reduces the guy into a small ball of flesh, with his spine and bones obviously in pieces. Brutal? Yes. Heroic? Not so much, I’m thinking.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
