No one knows how Endsville, the City of Devils, was created. But as soon as it appeared, it started to grow, and slowly eat up the world. You are an agent of Canti, the God of Black Flame. And you must Endsville from destroying the world. Your only weapon is flame. Matches, lighters, firebombs. Get the weapons, outsmart the firefighters, hide from the police, and torch the city. You must be careful, you cannot burn everything. If the entire city burns down, there will be no place to live. Thus, the battle is endless. There is no final justice. The only thing you can do is burn, and burn, and burn. Your highest goal is the receive the blessing of Canti, the God of Black Flame.

a basic game very similar to the one in the actual show.
what is on BET?
A dik-dik, pronounced “dĭk’ dĭk”, is a small antelope in the Genus Madoqua that lives in the bushes of eastern and southern Africa. Dik-diks stand 30–40 cm (approx. 12–16 inches) at the shoulder, are 50–70 cm (approx. 20-28 inches) long, weigh 3–6 kg (approx. 7-16 pounds) and can live for up to 10 years
i want one
can we share?
urge to hug.
I want to feel those lashes.
The most comfortable posing. Ever.
Okay. Guys. Guys. Two things.
1) I’m a martial artist. I’ve been studying since I was seven. I even wouldn’t hesitate to say that I’m good at it. I have done work as a fight choreographer for film, and I am trained in stage combat as well.
2) I’m a contortionist. Yes. Again, since childhood. I had to take a few years off due to some back issues, but I’m getting back into it again. I am Dick Grayson levels of flexible. Yes.
And Cassie’s pose?
Let’s forget for a minute that it is a supremely stupid and impractical pose for fighting because hey, it’s a comic book. If it looks neat, it doesn’t matter that a real fighter would never, ever do that, right? I mean, why use real positions when you can use made-up ones? Actual showy martial arts moves certainly don’t exist.
And it’s not like they look cool, or anything.
Hey, did you know that the makers of Avatar: The Last Airbender brought in martial arts experts to demonstrate moves, to make sure that they were both making sure things looked cool but also getting them realistic, thereby making it even more awesome?
Yeah. But. As I already said, let’s move past the whole it’s “stupid for fighting” thing.
I am, actually, physically capable of posing like Dick, Jason, Tim, and Damian in the comic above done by the wonderful (and often hilarious) Abby. It isn’t natural or comfortable of course (this is, keep in mind, coming from a person who can, and does, often browse the internets while maintaining a floating middle split), but it is physically possible for me, even with the intense exaggerated curve of the spine and position of the lower half of the body.
I am unable to imitate Cassie’s pose. Not it is difficult, not it is uncomfortable. It is impossible.
To further demonstrate, this is me doing a fairly extreme torso twist:
As you can see in the picture, I can position myself so that my upper half and lower half are, well. My chest is facing the floor and my knees are pointed towards the ceiling. I’m not sure how clear it is in the picture, but my shoulders are pretty much in line with my knees. And yet, the way Cassie’s torso is situated, coupled with her arm placement? Nope. Can’t.
Now I’m sure there are some people out there who probably are able to mimic the way Cassie (and so many other female comic characters) is positioned above. I’m also pretty sure that there aren’t many, and that Cassie can’t. Regardless of the fact that she was drawn that way. I’m going to go ahead and say she can’t.
Also, and go ahead and brick me for saying so, but I’m so turned around by how bad the art and positioning is that I really can’t find her sexy or anything. Which, you know, was probably the whole point of her being drawn that way. I guess some people find torso dislocation sexy? I’m not one of those people.
Just seriously. Artists. I understand artist license. I understand exaggeration. I understand suspending disbelief.
But if a martial artist who is also a contortionist can’t mimic a pose you use constantly for female fighters, there might be a problem in, you know, your choices on basic anatomy. I can’t be the only one who thinks this.
