  1. DC Clichés that need a looooong rest...

    Clichés often become clichés because they start out as good ideas, but, because of that, they often get used too often and end up wearing out their welcome. These are the ones that I don't need to...

    Blackest Night was kind of the high watermark for Johns's GL run. It's sort of downhill from there. Some cool stuff with the Emotional Spectrum entities, but it never got as good in my view.

    I...

    I'm taking a wait and see approach to this. After all the dust settles, I'll see which ones people thought were worthwhile and check them out, same as I did with Before Watchmen (which saved me a lot...

    And begin lowering your expectations now.

    The whole New Krypton story got derailed by editorial mismanagement and last minute changes of which no one was happy.

    However, if you go into it...

    I honestly can't think of any. Most of them are based upon personal preference and ignorance, like the old "Superman is boring because he can do anything" argument.

    Why do you think I'm saying differently? I literally said that he was ripoff in my first post. However, that's hardly a knock on the character since the creative teams at Fawcett took the character...

    DC gains absolutely nothing by committing to specific ages or dates for most of their big characters. I don't expect they'll ever release the timeline, except as an extra years from now whenever they...

    Ha! Yeah, I got Brock Samson and Doc Savage mixed up.

    Man, I would love to see this team-up ;)

    I think that's oversimplifying it a bit. One is based in sci-fi while the other is based in magic. The tone was also quite different. The Captain Marvel stories were very innovative for the time, to...

    Everybody was ripping everyone else off in comics.

    Superman owes a lot to John Carter of Mars, Flash Gordon, and Gladiator. His Fortress of Solitude is blatantly ripped off from Doc Samson.

    Agreed. I think Bendis excels at what made the early JLI comics so fun. Bouncing characters off each other in fun ways

    Give Bendis the Super Friends with the Wonder Twins, J'Onn and a rotating...

    I like that this is turning into a great place for one and done Superman stories by a variety of creative teams

    DING! DING! DING!

    This is something that I had to learn as well, but, once you understand that the GL franchise is never going to be about just one main character, it opens up the whole thing in...

    Quite right. My apologies.

    In regards to technology, I think the cell phone in itself would require a pretty major rewrite of countless stories

    Technology is one of the many reasons that adherence to strict continuity doesn't make any kind of sense within a sliding timeline. There's no way that certain stories could have happened exactly the...

    I think DC will be embracing the Multiverse a lot more moving forward, with lots of stand alone books aimed at the casual market and a variety of titles set within their own continuities that can...

    I did. It was certainly one of the more ambitious issues that Morrison & Sharp have attempted. It's definitely one that will require a re-read before I get a grasp on what they were attempting here....

    This whole book is like an eager to please puppy running around in circles as fast as it can after huffing paint in the garage.

    I love it.

    This decision, along with the similar decision to retcon away Superboy from the LSH and Hawkman & Hawkwoman's first arrival on Earth, were the three biggest blows to the Post-Crisis history that it...
