The Complete Origin of Dr. Sivana in Just Six Panels

(And that’s counting the two-panel framing sequence!)

Now I think I like Judd Winick’s portrayal of Sivana as Lex Luthor 2.0 in First Thunder even less.

Holy cow! With a completely awesome origin like that, I would totally sign up as a minion of Sivana!

Note: I am not being sarcastic. I truly am not. Why must modern DC suck all the goofy fun out of some characters?

I know, after reading that I totally wanted a SIVANA: YEAR ONE miniseries. I can't decide what my favorite part of that sequence is, baby Beautia's astonished look at her dad's nutty laugh, or Captain Marvel expressing his emotional reaction by simply shouting said emotion at the end of the story, "Sad!"
