AND THEN I MADE THAD
If anyone wants to use these, just let me know.
I was gone aaaall day at PPF, and guess what I learned?
One of the super-rare chase figures from the new Heroclix set is:
Rick got one, and I traded him basically the entire booster pack I bought for it. He’s gonna give it to me next Wednesday, he wants to play him this weekend.
In all, I walked away with two Wally figures, an Arrowette, a Li’l Lobo, a Superboy, a Secret, and an Empress. All of Young Justice, basically!
I have no idea how to draw Thad.
“Well”. I believe the word you were looking for is “well”.
Thanks for the view :)

“You found me?,i’m find you”
*Thanks for the view:)*
Right here, this is where it kills me.
Now, it might just be the lack of sleep talking—but I have a few things to say about this.
Thad is not a misunderstood character, he is a purely evil, crazy, murder; and heck, no one expected him to be. I mean he’s Bart’s clone, how evil can you be…VERY EVIL.
The thing about Thad is he doesn’t want to be recognized as Bart, doesn’t want to be seen as a goody do gooder type thing. I think one of the reasons he actually turned out insane as he did was because people thought of him at first to be like Bart wheN IN REALITY he was striving to be different…
I’m going to sleep now, sleep is good.
I shouldn’t be getting into this right now. It’s almost 5 am, and I’m sleepy and drunk, but damnit. I’ve been presenting this same argument since Thad was reintroduced in Flash: Fastest Man Alive.
Thad, Inertia, was created to be the opposite of Bart. To be everything that he, at the time, could not be. The first time Bart and Thad met, Bart was the poster child for ADHD, and Thad was The Bad Guy. That was it. Then the Mercury Falling arc happened. Bart was kidnapped and replaced by Thad, who planned on killing his mentor in order to completely break Bart before he killed him. But then something amazing happened.
Max Mercury, Helen, even Carol and the rest of the Manchester gang got through to him. They treated him as they always had, because they thought him to be the person they’d always know. Thad got a taste of what heroism felt like, and he liked it. So his plans changed. Instead of killing Max, he’d heal him, go take care of Bart, and live the rest of his life as Bart. Until he realized that that wasn’t what he wanted at all. He wanted to be recognized as a hero in his own right, loved for who he was, even though that went against everything he’d always been taught. It went against everything he was. No one loved Inertia, the clone. When Bart confronted him with this, he couldn’t stand it, and disappeared into the Speed Force.
A later arc of Impulse that takes place in the future (the Dark Tomorrow arc, where Bart meets his and Carol’s future selves) had President Thawne hinting that since he could no longer control the clone he’d made of Bart, he’d disposed of it, which is why he wanted the actual Bart on his side. When I first read that, I was very upset, because it meant that one of my favorite characters had been given a shitty, offscreen death. Now, I wish that that had actually been the case.
Flash: Fastest Man Alive was a terrible series that destroyed all the character development that the Mercury Falling arc gave to Inertia. Thad’s appearances in Teen Titans (written by Geoff Johns and Adam Beechen at their very worst) were equally bad, as they presented him as an easily-controlled buffoon. This is not the case. From the very beginning, Thad had been shown to be more intelligent than anyone Bart had ever met, if hideously socially inept. By the time All-Flash came out, there was nothing left to work with. In fact, by killing Thad in Rogue’s Revenge a couple of years later, that was DC’s way of ‘killing’ the entire Flash: FMA canon. None of the characters introduced in that series (namely, Valerie Perez) were ever mentioned again. And that was the tragedy of Inertia.
Is he a bad guy? Yes. Is he a true villain? Yes. Did he, at one point, have the potential to be good? Yes. Did DC shoot themselves in the dick when it came to exploring that potential? Hell to the yes. Is he evil? No.
Because when it comes down to it, what Thad wanted all along was not to be seen as the reverse Impulse, but to be seen as his own person. An entity separate from Bart. Wish granted, kind of.

favorite speedster family for today’s doodle because it was requested yesterday and IT’S DECEMBEEER YEAAAAAHH
originally Owen was pulling them all an a sled but frag that they were too heavy and squished together so here they are taking care off bbys during their first snow
Oh. My goddd.
Bart and Thad get to play with the babies all the time, because they live close to Wally and Linda. Like, in the same city. But Jenni lives far away and rarely gets to see them, so Jai is kind of like, “You look very familiar…” but he can’t quite place her even though his mommy told them that she was called Cousin Jenni and that she loved them very much. So he’s patting her face, as if that’ll help him remember her better. Irey loves her Cousin Bart, but she remembers Thad being mean to her when she was really little, and kept taking her doll away. He was trying to be playful, because he wasn’t really sure how to deal with babies, and that’s what Owen used to do to him, but she hated it. It’s why she grips her doll so tightly now. For his part, Owen was supposed to go on a snowboarding trip with Axel and his family, but then Meloni dropped the bomb that Jenni and her parents were coming to stay for the week between Christmas and New Years, and he was going to be in charge of watching the kids. He agreed, but only on the prerequisite that Digger was allowed to come to Christmas dinner. He likes his stepdad well enough, but he wanted to spend the holiday with everyone for a change. Axel keeps sending him pictures of the mountains, and of Joey wiping out everywhere. Owen is only slightly pissed that Axel took him instead, and his anger keeps getting negated by watching their taller friend practically throw himself at trees.

“Dude, you look like shit…”And then Meloni made Owen bring Bart and Thad to Axel’s.
“Mom, no, mom, listen. The ears and tails were cute for all of five minutes, but you know how Bart likes to be as annoying as possible in any way he can? And how Thad will take any annoying Bart throws at him and use it as an excuse to hit him? Yeah. So that’s what happened. And why one of my shoes is on the roof. Basically, and I’m saying this as nicely as I can, take your brats, Axel just got the new Borderlands expansion for XBox. I’ll be home tomorrow, or possibly Sunday. Love you.”
“FUCK OWEN FUCK WOULD YOU GET YOUR FUCKING BROTHER OFF MY FUCKING- GYAAAAAAH!”
“Axel, if they start picking up your foul mouth, I’m letting my stepdad arrest you.”
“YOU AND YOUR ENTIRE FUCKING FAMILY CAN EAT MY NUTS!”
“Don’t tempt him, he’s only hellbent on destroying your shirt right now.”
“HOW IS THE OTHER ONE SO CALM?!”
“I promised him he could play the Mad Moxxie expansion all he wanted if he sat still for the time it took me to get through this one.”
“…you’re going to let your hellspawn brother touch my XBox?”
“He’s a tiny gaming guru, he won’t hurt it. It’s Thad you’ve got to worry about.”
“No fucking kidding.”
i think we all have at least one fictional character whose death we’ll never recover from
