Tons safer than football. This looks pretty safe and the kids are learning some cool stuff. It's definately better than taking them to an American Karate McDojo.
Plus, as a fan of the sport, this just means that in like ten years, fights are going to be bananas because these kids are going to be so good.
pikies have been doing this for generations they MMA'd it
Hydra is gonna recruit those girls.
Also, "there are bad people out there..."
What if your kid is one of them?
I wasn't thinking Hydra so much as Darkseid, whose original deal was that he corrupted people -- got them to turn to their "dark sides", if you will. A description of an early Darkseid story:
The Forever People is easily my least favorite of the Fourth World books, but this one, one of Darkseid’s earliest appearances, hits perfectly. It takes a pretty standard comic book cliché, the amusement park rigged up with deathtraps — which, admittedly, I love every single time it shows up — and twists it a step further into something that’s genuinely creepy. For Darkseid, his park isn’t abandoned or hidden, it’s a thriving business that’s full of customers who stream in to watch the people suffering. Darkseid masks their screams of terror and pain behind the flimsiest illusions of happiness, but in one of the most important and terrifying segments in superhero comics, he lets the children see exactly what’s happening.
Why? Because he knows that the adults (and their “cock and bull” stories) will teach the children to ignore the suffering around them, filtering out the needs of others to focus on themselves. They’ll grow up isolated and alone, not even realizing that they can choose a better way, secure in the knowledge that they can walk right past the horrors of the world and never stop to help — the exact opposite of the inspiration that they’re meant to draw from Superman.
Taught never to retreat, never to surrender..
Zealot weirdo parents are always a bummer but this seems way, way less crazy than kid pageants.
