God sure didn't have a problem bending backwards for his accuser.

Job, that poor unfortunate fuck.
That guy
God's all like, "Scrutable? You want me to be scrutable? Fuck you. I mean, I may be fully opposed to the devil, but we also go way back, you mortal turd."

I never liked the story of Job. It's basically, "Fuck you because I'm God, I don't have to explain a damn thing to you, because might makes right."

It teaches the lesson that the ultimate moral authority is whoever can fuck you over for whatever reason they pull out of their asses and you have no right to question their motives or actions. Oh, and by the way, you're a sinner and your whole family is dead, fuck you.

That guy
....ok, but imagine it as a piece of Bronze Age religious literature including it's own criticism, and thereby being stronger. In that regard, it's amazing. (Lampshading itself maybe?)

Also, if you look at the other religions from that time and place, the gods are fairly grim, remote, inscrutable, etc.

In case anyone actually wants to nerd out on that:
The Gilgamesh Epic and Old Testament Parallels
by Alexander Heidel
It's about 250 pages and it's pretty interesting.

In the only Superbook clip I could find (which I have resubmitted at http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=40800 ) it's implied that Job knew about the bet. This version is more true to the Bible.
Jet Bin Fever
That robot looks terrible.
Kid Fenris
With the robot and kids and computer-rendered imagery, this feels like the buildup to a video game's final boss battle.
Sanest Man Alive
This is almost exactly how at least one Shin Megami Tensei game ended.

Job you really need to grow a backbone.
Maggot Brain
Something that's always left out of the Job story is that Job is more or less in on what's happening and is a bit taken back by the way God didn't have faith in him.

Anaxagoras
Yes, They even forgot to include that part in original version in the Bible.

I tell ya: the Bible authors were seriously sloppy.

Maggot Brain
Oh, fuck you. Like any of this happened anyway.

Woah! Superbook's been around since the early 80s, and was developed by Tatsunoko, whom I'm sure you're all familiar with.
cognitivedissonance
Oh yeah, Tatsunoko is my go-to guy for that thing that he does. Ain't nothing like a Tatsunoko. Why, the first time I saw Tatsunoko, I said "Tatsunoko definitely does what Tatsunoko does!" and I told me friends, "Friends, it's all about Tatsunoko now".

Tatsunoko fan from way, way back. Don't talk to me about Tatsunoko. I don't think you can handle how much I know about Tatsunoko.

infinite zest
Tatsunoko sold me drugs and said he'd hook me up with his sister. I was so high that I didn't know it was Tatsunoko.

oddeye
He that "Iron Man" fella? I don't think I know THAT Tatsunoko...

Rodents of Unusual Size
Oh the things Tatsunoko has done. My stars! I can't even count them all.

Tatsunoko is just about the end all for anything that I can think of. If it isn't Tatsunoko I just don't even think it's comparable to Tatsunoko. It's like Tatsunoko always says, "When you're in doubt, just Tatsunoko".

Sexy Duck Cop
God is such a cunt. Throughout the whole book of Job, his entire thesis is "I am more powerful than you." And Job is like "Yes, you sure are." Then his friends bitch at him for about 40 pages before God appears and says "I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU. WHICH IS WHY I AM GOING TO PUNISH YOU FOR DEFENDING ME RHETORICALLY. JOB, YOU'VE DONE EXACTLY WHAT YOU SHOULD, BUT LET ME JUST FLOP OUT MY WANG HERE AND REMIND YOU HOW POWERFUL I AM."

"Yeah, I get it. You're powerful."

"I AM POWERFUL."

"Yep. Powerful indeed."

"THAT MEANS I'M RIGHT."

"Hey, no argument here."

"FUCK YOU. HAVE A MILLION DOLLARS AND THE CURE TO AIDS."
