Has anyone told PZ yet?

Seems like my blog-worlds are colliding quite a bit lately, between my fandom post earlier and this one. So, in the latest issue of DC’s weekly maxi-series “Countdown,” we’re introduced to a demon in a body made of dead babies, with a rather familiar name (click for a larger image):
Now, I can’t say that I know what the political views of writers Paul Dini, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Justin Gray are. But it seems to me that a demon named “Pharyngula,” dressed in dead babies, “harvester of stillborn souls,” threatening to suck the shit out of a young girl’s intestines, might potentially be a statement of criticism.

If so, I’ve really got to commend them on their subtlety. Almost as effective as Michael Crichton calling his critic a baby raper!

    Niiiiice……”Harvester of Stillborn Souls”, eh? I can think of worse. I have to go wipe undigested intestinal contents off of my chin, now.

    The demon’s first speech is in mangled Esperanto, suspiciously as if it were written by someone who does not actually know Esperanto but spent a few minutes researching it online.
