Law and...Order?

Have any of you seen that Law and Order episode, where the Woman CEO commits a crime, and tries to use the defense that she's suffering from serious Menopause symptoms? I don't even remember who she murdered, or why, but I'm sure that she thought it was for a good reason. Her defense, was that she was having hot flashes.

I've had hot flashes myself, but I rarely have contemplated murder. Ok, maybe after I've cleaned up the kitchen, and then walk into if five minutes later to find out that the kids have totally destroyed it in the meantime. But ONLY for a momen to two.

But for some reason, I started thinking about Power Girl, and her unfortunate addiction to diet soda, that was portrayed back in the old Justice League:Europe books. For some reason, Kara was always dieting, and the artificial sweeteners used in diet soda adversely affected her alien pysiology...or something. Anyway, she used to get REALLY cranky.

If, she had somehow managed to create a real mess...not just the type of mess that the JLE USUALLY made, could she be held accountable for it by the courts? Would the unintended effects of asparteme on her, be an alibi? It is basically a variation of the "twinkie" defense, but would it hold up in court?

And, for that matter, who IS ultimately responsible for all the mayhem left afterwards by your average super human tussle? I know that in the Marvel Universe, they have Damage Control, which frankly is one of their best ideas ever. And Superhuman Insurance. Does DC have something similar? If Orion accidentally blows up your house, is it an Act of God? Max Lord used to hush things up and pay for physical damage back in the old JLI days, who takes care of that for the current Justice League? Does Bruce Wayne own an insurance company?

And does anybody else think about these sorts of things?

Does Hal have the answer?

Doesn't Checkmate take care of a lot of these issues in the DCU these days...? Bruce and Ollie supposedly covered a lot of JLA expenses in the early days (until Ollie lost his fortune).

*Snicker.* I always laugh when I see Hal in that pose. That is by far his most common pose throughout his comic book history -- standing with one hand on his hip and the other hand rubbing the back of his neck. And he STILL poses that way. I'm gonna have to go through all my GL issues one of these days and document all the times he's been drawn in that pose.

Sally, In order to say thanks for such a great site, I made this for you. Nothing fancy, but since you said you liked Kyle Rayner, I figured you'd enjoy this:

Well, there are always butt shots of Hal of course, but the rubbing of the back of his neck HAS to be because he has a headache...again.

*snort*

I didn't even think about Checkmate picking up the tab.

Morgan that is very kind of you. I guess I didn't do it right, but I can't seem to find the picture.

"I know that in the Marvel Universe, they have Damage Control, which frankly is one of their best ideas ever."

Yeah, before that the standard answer was for the Marvel hero on the scene to say "Bill it to Tony Stark." Which was fine for somebody like Iron Man, Captain America, Wasp, Hank Pym, or any other Avenger to say. But soon EVERYBODY with longjohns who incurred property damage started saying "Bill it to Tony Stark". People who had no affiliation with Tony Stark whatsoever started saying "Bill it to Tony Stark." Even The Hulk started saying "Bill it to Tony Stark." And they DID bill it to him. Stark couldn't have been a happy camper. Probably explains the drinking problem.

Why, that's lovely, Morgan! Thank you very much!

I KNEW there had to be a reason for the drinking! Haw!

Hey, Sally, I did a follow-up post to this one, dealing with how superheroes handle the rebuilding. It's called "Foibles of the Reconstruction"
