    I was very into Birthright being the official origin because Man of Steel wasn't at all appropriate for what they were trying to do with the regular books. A fitting origin is better off canon while...

    I think there are many possible perspectives, but to me it involves forming two different questions: whether one is a part or merely facade, and which if any identity is dominant. Any situation is...

    It's funny because I finally sat down with Thanos Part 1 for Christmas and couldn't believe how the first half hour was just that Marvel banter. Meanwhile Jor El attended his son's birth by flying...

    That twist in perception is why I use a lot of quotation marks. Batman is every bit as blessed as Superman in his narrative, and he's literally a rich guy who drives to the city from his mansion to...

    Poor Man of Steel just fell victim to the feedback cycle. Things that are praised and popular lead people in with a ton of optimism, and bad feedback prompts people to come out of the woodwork to...

    I guess... I like everything. I dunno. The character has this massive presentation, from the akimbo pose perched high with a swelling orchestra to silently sitting on a mound at the end of the...

    Moreso I go by what I like and those stories don't really require anything on my part to fit. Which is a shot in the dark because when you buy it's typically too late. Maybe I can sell off a stinker...

    World Against has 10 issues instead of eight, arranged in a different order. Which works because it is a nonlinear story.

    I think whatever blame is just a matter of taste. People are going to like Batman more no matter what D.C. wants. If they sell with...

    Well, Batman is like the worst example lol. He's anywhere from gathered by untrained thugs to wiping out scores of ninja. And that also goes for his character: the original monster men story saw him...

    You and others have indeed repsonded in eloquent and elaborate neutrality, CK. Unfortunately other comments seem to misunderstand: discussing the personal life of someone vaguely relevant, and...

    I can see that. And even though I thought those books had real pacing issues, it's disappointing to see those kind of flaws pointed out there when they're worse with Bendis.

    I like it though....

    I'll have to wait until much later to finish reading. Originally I thought up a big rant on the failings of Marvel method coupled with probably the most awkward dialogue I can remember (toolsters...

    I liked everything about the electric blue era except the actual Blue powers. They seemed to have no idea how to give them a good hook. Also it just went too long for how they pulled off the split...

    I thought her fight with Clark over Lois, and subsequent move to Metropolis for Lexcorp, were good for her character. Her character arcs were she wasn't an expy were often a little... pathetic? Like...

    It's not out to read for us yet, and it sounds completely impossible for you to enjoy it at this point anyway. Why bother bashing it?

    He's a master at selling hype and frills... unfortunately. I want to be excited about this radical change but they're just trying too hard to sell it imo as I'm not one to drool over those chart...

    The post crisis experience, for those of us hooked between 1986 and 2005, really has an unwritten rule imo. It involves leaving to delve into pre crisis, and then coming back to make sense of the...

    Maybe he byrnes it off with heat vision in a mirror.

    Excellent. I love the outsider attention, especially the rather typical perspective on the character. They need to release that volume 2 on...

    Comics.org makes it clear that they are the newspaper original strips for issue 772 at least. Likely throughout the run but not all data is collected. 1939, featuring the original with Jor L and...

    It seemed like of all the changes were directed at readers who didn't get both. You could synch the stories up more and do a note to check the other title for reference, but I also think it's nice to...

    Yeah, those are two things in contrast: the way he treats character vs plot. The plot thing... I probably sounded harsh before. The pace is ridiculous, but it's fixed by a binge read and then it's...

    That's not exclusive to Superman though, that's the nature of the genre. I'm a pretty big 616 Punisher fan and he has the same problem even though it defeats his purpose.

    That's my favorite Brainiac, who adopted that design in the Brainiac trilogy. For some reason it always comes up that people get confused and call him Milton Fine.

    Design wise I can understand if...

    For some reason I don't feel all that surprised if Bendis referenced them.

    I guess they sorta got lost in the teen boom, somewhere before Supermen of America and Young justice. Sometimes when I...
