Well, being that you’re a guy and there’s better than an 85% chance that you are heterosexual, I figure it’s a safe guess that you wouldn’t appreciate the desire to see a sleek, well-muscled, attractive man in tights (even if he is only a drawing) jump out of a cake. Either that, or you’re not reading Identity Crisis.
Basically, the late Sue Dibney plans a surprise birthdy party for her husband every year, and sends him off on a wild goose chase so she can prepare it. To make sure it’s actually a surprise, she never plans the party on Ralph’s actual birthday. Of course, since Ralph has considerable detective skills, he’s never surprised, but he always pretends to be to keep from hurting Sue’s feelings.
Anyhoo, this year, the Green Arrow was supposed to jump out of a cake (mmm, sleek attractive well muscled man in tights jumping out of a cake, and so what if he’s only a drawing) but before everyone could be gathered and Ollie actually put inside the cake, Sue got blowed up real good. So far, Dr. Light has been the prime suspect, but now it seems that he’s not the actual blower-upper.
So, now, I’ll never get to see the Green Arrow jump out of a cake.
Oh, and Big Bad Voodoo Lou, shame on you for even suggesting that anyone could possibly think of a solution that even a well prepared Batman couldn’t think of in time. I don’t even think it could happen in Elseworlds.
Bad Lou. No biscuit.
Besides, I seem to recall something in the OP about events that didn’t happen because of some ASSPD sufferer messing things up. As far as I know, the Blue Beetle does not suffer from ASSPD, although you could probably make a case that the Batman does.
