Young Justice Robin is seriously ‘roiding. We thought that was Speedy’s job.
Yeah Mike you are gonna hafta try way harder than that. I mean the girl has already decided she is going to Marry YOU. She does not shock that easy.
Maybe he can bang her mom all over the parking lot and use the wet spot to make the sign.
Makes me wonder if she’s resigned to the fact that at some point Mike will bang her mum and she’s made peace with it.
I know it’s set in the future, but I think she’s inevitably going to find out that Jacob banged her mom. And by find out, I mean she’ll walk in on them. At her wedding. At this point, Mike may feel inadequate and have to one-up him.
Which means that the only way for Mike to shock her is to bang her father.
He already did a gay bang in order to mess with her mind.
He’s not trying though. You have to go personal with that stuff. Dead hamhams that include her pets would be personal.
I don’t think he is all that opposed to marrying her but feels he has to be mike about the whole thing.
I think the thing that bothers him the most is that it caught him off guard.
Other people get caught off guard. Not Mike.
Is Mike going a little soft on Amber or is Amber had Mike by the balls?
Can I say both? Yeah, I’ll go with both.
But this doesn’t feel like a both.
Hm, no, you’re right, that definitely feels like only one testicle.
Dun Dun DUUUUUNNNNN!!
And this is why I love Amber and Mike together.
Disagreed. I now hate Mike for even mentioning the above idea.
Everyone knows the answer is 73 from the episode of “How it’s Made.”
116 cats if he decides to spell it out using the ‘Comic Sans MS’ font.
Nothing says break up like “Will you marry me” in the worst font known to man, chimp and bisexual universe.
And it would be JUST like Mike XD
Don’t be silly. You can use cats to make a Comic Sans font. They have tails! That automatically limits you to serif fonts.
Unless you cut the tails off or use only bobtail cats.
I recommend using humans instead. More entrails.
I particularly recommend humans suggesting harming cats… which includes most of this conversation line.
Here I was think that you’d use *only* the tails for maximum flexibility.
If he was minimalist he could use 53. I counted.
If Mike glares any harder he’ll be able to etch the words onto her forehead with heat vision.
I think after all this time, Amber has finally figured out how to really deal with Mike. In a way it reminds me of Dina, who also just took everything he said at face value. But she did it accidentally.
Psst, hey Mike. If you want to get a rise out of her, use dead hamsters. But you’ll need a lot of them. Dead ponies would do the trick as well.
You need to dye the colour of the dead ponies so they look more like her favourites, after all it’s the thought that counts.
If Galasso finds dead pastel colored ponies in his parking lot, he’ll sell them as life-sized Friendship is Magic merch.
See?Not only is it thoughtful, it’s profitable too.
And very good source of nightmare fuel for the kiddies.
This dead pony thing is looking better and better all the time.
How about we just use those Kung Zhu hamsters that are clogging up the shelves everywhere? I mean, TRU can’t even GIVE them away with any $20 purchase (local store manager has had folks turn down a free toy!).
That way less horses and cats die, the store gets rid of unproductive merchandise and we can get some room on the action figure aisles for new product!
It’s a Win-Win!
You’re being practical. this isn’t about practicality.
It’s about being shocking and offensive.
And maybe a little about traumatizing children.
If it is about shock value he can just use one, if he shreds it fine enough.
At some level, it stops being a cat and starts being just a thing, so one cat might just lose a little of the shock value.
Or you could shave them and then tattoo the appropriate cutie marks in place. Less accurate but the message is there and I think bald ponies would add a certain flair to the situation.
I think branding the cutie marks on would be much faster and more traumatic.
Are you saying Mike….wrote cupcakes?
I’m surprised Mike isn’t going to spell it out with the bodies of all the moms he’s slept with.
And now, I imagine the meeting… Nude mid-aged women waiting the orders of Mike and write “Will you marry me ?” with their bodies laid down on the ground.
And I can’t help but ask myself how Mike would convince them…
Probably in this universe murdering mid-aged women still is illegal (in most cases), as opposed to murdering cats.
Last Panel Mike has that “AH SHIT, that didn’t work!” look on his face.
I was thinking that was a ‘You’re really going to make me say it, aren’t you?’
Then again, it might be “Ah shit, I need to find more cats from somewhere, I already killed all the ones in this area.”
was mike trying to ask amber to marry him? 8o
That’s what I’m thinking. This strip looks like a Mike proposal, but she didn’t notice, or didn’t want to take notice.
It is the blissfully ignorant helpful response or just helpful response. Hmmm
Makes a lot of sense, that, combined with his expression of “Damnit are you really going to make me actually ask?!” in the last panel.
Oh man, he’s going to need a lot of cats, especially if he’s having her stand on the roof to view the message.
This is the end of Garfield.
And Heathcliff, just for good measure.
It had to happen some time.
And, tragically, Cats and Company.
and that’s terrible!
Let’s not forget the Aristocats.
Can’t we please, please forget all about them?
Well, Dead Cats might not be a good idea after all.
I mean, do YOU want Razor and T-Bone knocking at your door wondering who killed all the Kats?
Not to mention the Turbokat bombing Shortpacked out of existance in retaliation.
Don’t forget the Samurai Pizza Cats.
You all forgot the Samurai Pizza Cats, didn’t you?
Why does everybody but me aways forget the Samurai Pizza Cats?
Samurai Pizza Kats? I just passed them on the freeway this morning……
Just so long as Singularitkitty is left out of Mike’s proposal.
Mike cannot even think of using Singularikitty until he removes it from Robin by eviscerating her.
Don’t you mean Leslie?
He could probably write the whole thing just with Singularikitty. In cursive.
You say that like it’s a bad thing.
As long as the SWAT Kats stay alive.
Cat in the hat?(no wait screw him.)
The Cheshire cat?
well romantic=1/2(c)^2 with c being cats…
Wait, are cats in the numerator or the denominator?
(This has to be the single oddest math question I’ve ever asked…)
I think you multiply the cat’s by the fraction. It’s sorta like saying:
2 cats = 1 romantic
Totally being “that guy”, but actually 2 cats => 2 romantic as the cats are squared. But in awesome news: for cats= 100, Romantic(cats)= 5,000!!! Awwww!
Dead Cats? No. Weak. Brad should arrange her clothes, ‘My liitttle pony’ collection, and other possessions to spell out ‘Would you marry me ?’ and then burn it all and put a video of it on youtube.
Amber’s invisible other boyfriend who is always standing just over Mike’s left shoulder.
How could you have forgotten him?
You should not mock Brad, for he watches and he sees.
Seriously, Brad is my favorite character. I mean, in general, I love Willis’ ability to round out his characters and flesh them out in a way that makes them feel like real people having a conversation, but overall, Brad has got to have the most gripping character development. I mean maybe I’m just biased because his story kind of strikes a chord with me but Brad’s big moment in the last story arc actually brought a tear to my eye.
Oh, I know what you mean.
I liked Brad from his introduction, but his evolution has made for one of the most amazing character arcs I’ve ever read.
A better option would be to melt down her collection and spell it out, with the hair from the toys surrounding it in a fashion that lets you know where it came from while still holding the ‘appearance flare’ (or flair, bleh.)
omfg, i want to see how they’re wedding will be. if he proposes with dead cats, it can only get more insufferably bizarre, grotesque and awesome.
There are sort of ‘Wednesday Adams in love’ jokes.
You know Mike doesn’t really mean it, or he would’ve used hamsters and would’ve already done it.
This being Mike, he’d already done the math long before asking with eight possible pet creatures.
I think the Boy Wonder has the mumps. Look at those cheeks!
Mike is escalating. Amber’s holding steady, which infuriates him. I can’t tell whether this will end comically or tragically.
It could be tragicomic.
Amber goes out to the parking lot and sees “It’s over” spelled out in dead cats
She goes out there to see “It’s Over.” written in Knocked Out cats. When Amber asks shouldn’t they be dead, Mike answers “I couldn’t be bothered to kill them, THAT’S HOW MUCH OUR RELATIONSHIP MEANS TO ME!”
Also works for “Marry Me.” Actually…
I cannot wait to see the end of this.
Also, obligatory LONG CAT IS LONG.
I was wondering when someone would say it.
I’m actually surprised Mike is trying such a pathetic attempt at freaking out Amber. They’ve been dating for a few years now. If half the shit he’s done so far hasn’t scared her off yet, nothing, not even dead cats, will ever do it now.
As for the YJ Robin toy… that joke won’t work with the nerds. After all, on the Young Justice show, Dick Grayson is the only Robin to exist right now. So its not so much he ate the other Robin, but rather that Bruce is feeding him steroids straight up. Keep at it Ethan.
Ask yourself why Dick Grayson is the only Robin in Young Justice though. If anything it only proves his point.
Umm… Because Dick Grayson is the guy who created the Robin identity, and thus is the first and only person to be Robin. So… nope, doesn’t prove his point. Try again.
It does look like this Robin has been hitting the Venom. Bruce should check the back of his head for a tube port.
It seems like a really strange choice of body type considering how this show uses a smaller and slightly more Puck-ish Robin.
“We thought that was Speedy’s job.”
I laughed at more than the comic itself. Good one.
Though, wasn’t Speedy doing heroin? I didn’t think that it was steroids.
Think back to every picture of a heroin user you have ever seen. Any of them have muscles like Roy Harper? There’s a reason for that.
Because he’s a super hero?
Wow. A dead cat joke on the day my cat dies.
I don’t know why, but I was kind of expecting this (Not from here in particular. Just that, inevitably, a dead cat would result in a dead cat joke. Life’s like that sometimes).
Sorry about your kitty. Insert glurgy but sincerely well-intentioned Rainbow Bridge comment here.
Cats? What kind of cat? The musical “Cats” ? Common cats? Thundercats?
If is mike, he can make something good…
not gonna lie i thought he planed to drain the cats of there blood into a bucket and use said bucket to paint it on the parking lot
Try again Mike.
Wow… She is going to force him to actually ask it plain and simple, isn’t she?
Originally, I thought she was just inadvertantly hitting all his soft spots, but now I’m starting to see that she is literally the dominant one in that relationship. She has COMPLETE and UTTER control over him.
Either that, or she really is that oblivious.
Mike was attracted to Amber because she could be just as ruthless and cruel as he is. She is not oblivious to him.
Mike wouldn’t have stayed after the blackmail was over if she was oblivious.
To Amber, Mike being an asshole is like a cat that scratches you. No matter how much you love it, a cat is still a cat, which means you get scratched sometimes.
Unless you declaw the little fucker….
I’m not sure where my analogy is going anymore so…Yeah.
Well in terms of declawing, there’s always liquor for Mike, which Dina succeeded in technically. While not cruel, she is very much ruthless and strong armed as he is, though, and she’s probably able to recognize when he’s doing something for fun and when he’s doing it as a replacement for saying something now.
You can just TELL by his expression in that last panel that he is brimming with Mike Love for her! She is his perfect foil. And, that appeals to him in a very weird way.
I love that Ethan has work in what he wants to do.
Dude! You threw me. I clicked on the link and it took me back to my own site! LOL
Thanks for the link, man. As a loyal reader, I’m geeking out a bit right now!
I can’t figure out if he’s trying to scare her off or if this his way of actually proposing..
Man, I usually love Mike & Amber and their play, and this would be really funny…. if my cat didn’t die two days ago. Ouch.
I’ve finally come to terms with Mike’s character, I think. I used to think of him as a “Force of Nature”, a one-note character done right, so to speak. Now, I can see his character development, he’s a lot more human. He is yet another example of a Walkyverse character developing from simple into a complex character.
But I dislike it. Mike was FAR funnier and more entertaining as a “Force of Nature” than as a realistic, complex character. I know this is strange to say, but skillful character development was the wrong choice, in my opinion. He was a great foil to Ethan’s decency with his evil, and to Ethans angst with his straightforwardness and confidence.
All of this is moot if Mike pulls off some grand scheme to hurt Amber at their wedding, which I’m hoping for
Yeah, you’re gonna have to actually do the work and kill all of those cats if you want a girl to marry you.
I wonder at this point, is Amber into Mike because she loves him? Or is it about punishing an asshole, like her father. Not the same kettle of fish & she does do things with him, but she does occasionally knock Mike, by being immune to bend annoyed (& criticism).
But their relationship, mostly seems about making Mike unhappy.
The odd thing though is this is why Mike loves her. Mike wants someone who can put up with, or in this case flat out cancel, his evil plans.
I dunno. Mike is about the only main character that hasn’t ever had an inner dialogue or moment of reflection, across all the time he’s been around.
I don’t know, not sure you can definitively state what Mike wants. I think Zara is right & Mike needs some sort of inner dialogue. I mean, he’s basically been blackmailed into a relationship, which allows for his nastiness..
Yet at the same time, thwarts it, by just ignoring it. Or even pointing out its flaws. I don’t see how he can be happy with this, yet supposedly Mike could get out (per Jason) of the deal, if he really wanted to.
She released Mike from the blackmail, and Mike stuck around. That was the basis for her deciding that they would eventually be married.
It only takes one dead cat – just use the intestines and you can spell whatever you want. You may need to use other organs to dot the i.
And Then They Did It In The Utility Closet!
D’awwwwwwwwwww, Mike ^^
42, if you’re using small letters and a non-serifed font.
Or maybe just one reaally long cat.
That head… … INCREDIBOY
HOLY CRAP they made him HUGE!!! That is NOT what he looks like in the show.
TAKE A HINT WOMAN
Anyway, mike just needs to use Singularicat. Just stretch it around, and boom! Instant cat-based marriage proposal.
Amazi-Girl is immune to dead cats.
If Mike really wanted to end the relationship, simply give her a card with the message “IT’S OVER, BITCH!” written in glued on SNKRS entrails.
Nah, if I were Mike and wanted to mess with her I’d leave her flowers and an “I love you” note and disappear, never to be found again.
*shakes head* oh Amber, you are sooo dense. XD I am not surprised that Mike is asking Amber to marry him, Amber is one of the two girls(that we know of) who have caught Mike’s interest. :/ Every other girl has run away from Mike scared because of his personality, you truly have to be dense to be with Mike, so great job Amber you are now denser than Robin is at times. That’s a whole new level of dense.
I don’t know that I agree — what do you think Amber is ‘not getting’ here? I think she understands Mike about as well as anyone does, and for the part of Mike that is beyond human comprehension, she wouldn’t have to be dense to not comprehend it.
:/ …. Hmmm good point. Maybe she likes pulling on Mike’s strings. You know just annoying him to the point where he’ll just go out and say, “Will you marry me” in his own twisted, but interesting way. Good point my good man.
Mike can use a hamster to delivery the ring and a note to ask “Wold you marry me?”
This is more Ethan or Robin to ask to amber, not Mike. Is too nice to him… Hmmm… Drunk Mike?
I think it’d be about 50 cats. That’d be assuming you were using a cat for each line stroke.
I figured you could probably get away with only using three cats for the letter “O”
Oh Mike. I love you and how twisted you are.
If he wanted a reaction, he should have suggested dead hamsters…
Although that would take a LOT of hamsters… o_o
Oh Mike, dead cats aren’t the solution. They are uncooperative to arrange into shapes when alive and rigor mortis sets in really fast, especially in the skinnier cats… or so I’ve heard…
From experience with my two poor kitties last year, yes, it sets in VERY fast. And they were very thin and small. And as I learned with the first one, you’d better find a way to keep the eyes and mouth shut if you don’t want it looking horrific/scary/sad when you bury it. Also, put them in a box. It’s easier to throw dirt on a box than slowly watching your little one disappear under dirt. (The second kitty’s “funeral” went a lot better.)
Mike is so romantic.
I feel like I’m the only one who doesn’t like the Amber and Mike relationship.
she didn’t get it, he told her as good as only he can do and she didn’t get it!!!
I dunno if that is hilarious or just pissing me off XD
I feel the need to point out that The Perry Bible Fellowship thought of this before Mike. Not with cats, though:
I just did the math. It would take exactly 38 full-grown cats, and that’s counting dotting the “i” with a head.
Looking back on this, I know that Mike has the sound clip… Which means he was probably saving it for a special occasion that was NOT supposed to be what it turned into, and was hoping to do this a quick and harmless way.
All of Willis’ comics are better in hindsight, especially since he is known to use ‘arrows’. That is why I read them over and over again when I really should be doing something else.
