It's a British thing. We seriously have an alcohol problem as a nation. I think a lot of guys overe here would see 'can handle her drink' as a major plus when looking for a g/f.

Yeah I don't get it either. Unless they are noticably short, I won't notice it on the big screen.

And that said, I don't think i've ever seen a Tom Cruise flick and thought 'man he looks well short'.

Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.

'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
