Welcome, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week 60 of Obscurity of DC’s Ultr-Obscure Book Club! This week we’ll starting a 2-week focus on…
AGE SUGGESTION: 17+
Number of Issues: 8 (Please only read 1-8)
Synopsis from dcuniverseinfinite.com: Ever wonder who’s calling the shots? Ever wonder if those in control are reviewing all the resumes? If not, consider the case of Kid Eternity. Everyone knows someone like the Kid-the dude who seems just too cool to live. In his case, though, it’s true. Kid Eternity is dead, though he tries not to let that cramp his style. In a lot of ways, he’s a pretty typical teenager-more interested in the world in his head than in the job at hand, which is to help humanity raise its consciousness and climb the next rung of evolution’s ladder. Okay, so the Kid can call on anyone in all history to aid him in his quest, but there we go assuming the Kid’s going to notice it when he needs help. The Kid has this small denial problem. When your whole (after)life is just one damned thing after another, you tend to be pretty jaded, and things have to get awfully weird before the Kid gets moving.
Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:
- Why does Kid Eternity use Cupid to bring the bickering Val and Jerry together? How does this relate to his mission throughout the series?
- When Kid Eternity summons Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung to help him in issue two, what information do we learn about Kid Eternity? Do his companions’ insights help him in any way?
- After confronting the racists of Kurmville in issue four, do you think Willie’s anger towards Kid Eternity was justified or not? Explain.
- Out of all the prominent villains introduced in this part of the series (the demons Sara, Beelzebub, Fetish, Stalker, and Infinity Jones), which villain was the most interesting in this series? What made unique as antagonists?
- In this part of the series, Kid Eternity’s shown to have a noble goal, but he’s lacking some heroic qualities. At this point in time, would you describe Kid Eternity as a hero or not? Explain.
