    Oh, that sounds just terrible. If that's the case, then I won't be seeing it.

    Absolutely. He was just doing the right thing because he could. Because (he believed) it was the right thing to do. No trauma needed. As soon as he realized he had the abilities, he wanted to use...

    Look like 1930 to me (am on phone right now, but zoomed in and can see curve/middle bit), as it did when I read it originally. But your mileage may vary. Reading text in images on comics can be a...

    Definitely a thing. I've grown to like particular costume of hers from the bronze age just because it neither a feminized version of her father's, nor a copy of her mother's. She needs to be out of...

    Yeah, well there was some retconning there by someone somewhere along the line. When Dinah first crossed universes, she was likely mid to late 30s (Larry Lance's tombstone said he was born in 1930)...

    Don't think this has been mentioned but "secret reveal about the past" - often a previously unknown child or sibling. An innocuous or coincidental event that turns out to have actually been...

    I'd really like not to recycle names, anymore. Also, it's even more overt in the bio-kid-replaces-adopted-one (which many find distasteful) if Jon gets the same codename, too.

    I'm fond of the Golden Age Joker (well, at least at his introduction), who is absolutely not crazy or chaotic. He has strong plans, and is very theatrical. I actually think that is a great match for...

    I certainly agree with there too many and the "flattening" of characters. I can't agree with the Batfamily being made to look better being the cause for Bruce being an abusive jerk - he was already...

    To me, it's just another way to take an element of Clark's (like the Legion) and hand it off to someone else (Smallville Superboy for Kon, etc.). It further diminishes Jon's...

    I don't know the context but can't summon outrage. Sadly, it's par the course. We've seen several heroes and villains who should not be able to accomplish such things do so. And it's been this way a...

    The problem with that to me is that the age gap simply isn't sufficient. It's less than 15 years (per her original debut). By time Superman is ready to retire, she should have already adopted her...

    This is why I miss having a few good anthology titles. Back in the day we could have The Atom or Elongated Man with regular appearances even those like Roy Harper with short term ones. I like a the...

    Agreed.

    I personally don't mind billionaire - I just don't like him one of 50 (or even 300) the richest in the world , and I very much dislike how he's used that money in regards to other heroes. ...

    If you are starting from scratch, you have to pick what to keep and what to discard, because it can't all be kept. I think as long as you stick to what you pick, then you don't get the problems. ...

    He qualifies, since he doesn't have a biological/adoptive relationship to a character that well...grandfathers in grandparents.

    Edit: Blue Devil had a grandmother appear an issue of his series.

    I guess Vic Stone is a good choice. Still a teen when he became a superhero, but his paternal grandparents were alive.

    I really wasn't thinking of legacies and spinoffs (where the grandparent or...

    Adult heroes with grandparents

    We were talking about silver-age Sue Dibny's theoretical family money in another thread. And it got me to thinking - at the age she married it was likely that she and and Ralph not only had parents,...

    Yeah, I looked up Lian after I read here she was back. I really hate how it sounds. She doesn't even sound like Lian. They took away the relationship with Roy, which was the important part. And made...

    I agree. I really don't care for it. But if we're going for what most fans like, can't deny it's on the list. Likewise, I do no want Alfred raising Bruce, but many do.

    I particularly, strongly,...

    Dinah Drake Lance joined the JLA in an issue with a November 1969 cover date (moved earths the prior issue, when Larry died). I believe it was the issue first issue where Ollie had his goatee (also...
