Ten Minor Things That Make Me Hate OMAC

I have tried several times to write one of my "standard-form" posts about OMAC, but I gave up. Instead, I'm just going to complain, with some new kvetches, and some repeated from previous posts.

1. The cover of OMAC #4 involves a projection of vagina dentata, with an OMAC-shaped head-penis projecting between Vienna's breasts.

2. An experienced 26 year old has sex with a 17 year old virgin boy, and afterwards swoons that its the best sex she's ever had. TOTALLY Mary Sue.

3. Mike and Vienna fly from Nevada (where the age of consent in 16) to California (where the age of consent in 18), and choose to have sex there. This gives new meaning to "Crossing state lines for immoral purposes." It wasn't statutory rape until they crossed the state line!

4. Superman looks into Vienna's womb the day after she and Mike have sex and tells him the she is "carrying" his child. Even if one of Vienna's eggs were fertilized when they had sex the day before, there is at least five days between fertilization and implantation. There is approximately a 50/50 chance that implantation will not occur successfully. It is really bad form to refer to Vienna as "carrying" anything before the fertilized egg attaches to her.

5. The cover of OMAC #7 shows only Mike and Vienna, but I count at least 5 hands.

6. Superman is trapped inside of Brother Eye because it has kryptonite walls, and he calls Mike to help him out? Not, like, Wonder Woman or Green Lantern?

7. I still have NOOOO idea what parts of the story are dream sequence and which are real. All I know for sure is that more than 25% of #7 was not "really happening."

8. Cover of OMAC #8? Meet vagina dentata. Again.

9. The OMAC virus is an STD that is passed from a virgin.

10. There is no way this is all going to get cleared up in only 22 more pages.

I haven't been reading OMAC because I pretty much had enough with all Infinite Crisis-related books once IC was half over. Looks like I didn't miss much.

But I have to say, I don't see five hands on the cover to #7. Are you seeing a hand in the folds of the tshirt?

Hi Rob!

I see two of Vienna's blue "OMAC" hands and two of Mike's "normal" hands.

Then, emerging from Vienna's navel is a shirt cuff and wrist, disappearing into what looks like another hand underneath's Mike's right hand. If it's not another arm, I don't know what it is, but it is certainly not part of anyone's shirt.
