How do you pronounce “Djinn?”



As badly as i want to say that ‘D’, it is silent. if it helps, you can think gin, as in the booze, as one would find in a gin and tonic.

Good to know!

Thanks, y’all. My brain always tried to throw that d in there, too, but I wasn’t sure.

First time reading the conclusion.

My favorite aspect was how the teamwork just wasn’t there. In most team books, they fight well together from the gist even if the dialogue says otherwise. “We need to train more!” while they do everything perfectly . Here, they really did need to train more.

My favorite specific moment was the “I’m peeing now!” bit. That made me laugh out loud.

What do you mean? What’s not to buy? Do you not believe someone could actually enjoy is blood soup?

Roundhouse (was that his name?) was hilarious! Crusher was awesome while holding up that building. Djinn is…dangerous, but so far annoying.

Yeah, that’s not a good thing. He’s definitely crossing the line there. What will Dad say??!?

ooo. HERE’S the TT new stuff thread! I’ll add comments later, almost done with it.

Intriguing anyway. The mix of new and seldom-used characters reminds me of the Bendis Young Justice stuff.

  1. Yes, this is my first time reading TT Full Throttle.

  2. Favorite moments are between Crush and Roundhouse, toooo funny.

  3. Daimian’s story in special: way way too dark. I truly hope he didn’t actually murder all those people a la Punisher.

  4. Favorite new character: torn between Djinn and Roundhouse.

  5. What do I think of Damian’s secret jail? Horrible. I have no idea how Damian survives this untouched and shows up in Legion #3 recently.

  6. Yes, let’s keep reading. That upcoming confrontation with Red Hood looks fun!


So I’ve read bits and pieces of this series. But not the Special. I think it if all these I’ve only read the last issue, 24.

I like that Crush held up the whole building. Reminded me of Secret War when Hulk holds up that mountain with all the heros under it. I also like how Crush points out the obvious, that they all have secrets and don’t really trust each other but do have to depend on each other.

I’m not sure. Damian being a jerk continually like this makes me wonder if there will every be any character growth. If anything he has had so many going points of his life. Working with Batman to get past no killing, withing with Dick Grayson to actually be affable and good with partners, dying and coming back to life, His growth in Supersons, but no… His character always comes back to jerk who needs to be better than others and not trust anyone around him. I get that it’s the easiest way to write him, but it also is him alienating all the people he had connections to.

Roundhouse is fantastic. Don’t quite have a bead on what his powers are yet though.

For sure his secret prison won’t bite him in the ass.

@DEATHBONE Where are these images coming from?
