The Colbert Cut of Justice League is funnier, a lot shorter
Stephen Colbert either pithily encapsulated an infamous Hollywood ego trip or trolled some furious fanboys when, on Monday’s Late Show, he described the thought process behind recent release of the hysterically hashtagged-to-heaven “Snyder Cut” of the 2017 superhero bust Justice League. Calling the newly unleashed, shrug-inducing, expensively re-jiggered four-hour-and-two-minute version of the DC Comics second try the perfect thing for people who thought, “Yeah, that film sucked, but what it was twice as long?,” Colbert—who was interviewing a star of a non-Snyder-ed comics cinematic universe later that night—happily joined the collective DC dog pile.

Runaways has always had a tenuous relationship with its superhero identity. The book has always been best when it downplays superhero elements to focus on the challenges faced by a group of teens and young adults on the run from authority figures, and writer Rainbow Rowell fully understands this strength.

The latest arc of Rowell’s outstanding run leans into the superhero element harder than the series ever has before, bringing the group under the wing of a Los Angeles superhero looking to revive his team of young costumed crusaders from the ’90s: Doc Justice And The J-Team. This story is a fascinating journey through teen superhero team history, and it’s a particularly strong showcase for Gertrude, who is forced to sit on the sidelines because none of the J-Team’s old costumes fit her plus-sized body.
