It’s jarring because the beauty pageant scene, while hamfistedly sexist, is comedic in tone, it doesn’t seem like it belongs in the same story as the rape scene. It robs the rape scene of its gravitas. The writers I mentioned typically wouldn’t make that kind of mistake.

Bingo. It’s a jarring mess that is not sure what it really wants to convey other than woman power and men are terrible beings

An example that does it well is in BMB’s Alias, where Jessica tells Luke about her history with the Purple Man. That was a very powerful issue, some of Bendis’s absolute best writing.

I wont lie, doesnt matter if she does sound like Ed Asner, i’d hit young Goodness.
Come to think of it, maybe sex w. Darkseid is WHY she sounds like Ed Asner? Blowing a cock thats essentially a throbbing stalagmite w. boulder balls and taking a full load of godly semen to the back of the throat has GOT to damage the vocal cords... :-X

Thinking back on that scene (god help me), its just as left field and "the fuck is this shit"
as that "reveal" of Absorbing Man having raped a woman in the past, or Omega Red being
hinted on being a pedophile.

Its reassuring that DC can also write dreck as bad as Marvel's.

Everything about that page just screamed cringe, forced, unnecessary, out of character,
and retarded.

Now you're getting it!  Said the rape sloth!

They even make them have a smile competition

This seems like a parody.  One would think beauty is not celebrated at all on Apokolips.

^^^ Exactly. Parody and rape don’t go together. It makes the writer seem both humorless and without empathy.

I don’t think even someone like Mel Brooks, who has made humor out of torture and slavery, could pull it off. I forget who said it, but tragedy needs time to become comedy.

They really don't realize that this for Ed pandering is backfiring on them, do they?

This is a comedy story, inadvertently.

Re-reading this scene and the only context I could see this working was if the Joker was doing this, and again, in a non-sexual way...its so foreign to what Darkseid does.

It truly is a parody, wtf.
