Any fans of Platoon out there? My second favorite quote* from that movie is when Charlie Sheen wonders why Willem Defoe smokes pot, if it’s just to feel good, and Defoe says, “Feelin’ good’s good enough.” If Gail Simone had just made Catman into a badass with the personality of a cat, that would have been enough. A great reinvention that puts life into a previously lifeless d-lister.
But she adds layers to him, giving him a kid.
God, I love this comic.
*My first favorite Platoon quote: “Ain’t nothin’ like a good piece of pussy. ‘Cept maybe the Indy 500.”
