    Yeah, it's pretty daunting, but there's a lot of gold in there for Superman fans.
  2. This is gorgeous! Who’s the artist?

    This is gorgeous! Who’s the artist?

    No worries, BatmanJones. When I hoped for a nuanced discussion of this topic in my initial post, I knew that the usual Comicsgate talking points would get trotted out sooner or later. Well, at least...

    Did they keep the Olympic athlete part of Jefferson’s origin in his TV show? I stopped watching at the start of the second season so I am out of the loop there, but I seem to remember his origin...

    It's a tricky thing, though, because fans get mixed messages about the effectiveness of their persistent harping about what they don't like.

    Would Hal Jordan had been redeemed and brought back to...
  6. Sharing elements is perfectly fine. It's when...

    Sharing elements is perfectly fine. It's when they outright "steal Superman stories and file the serial numbers off" as the Supergirl writers room freely admitted to doing when I get annoyed.

    This...

    If there's anything comics fans excel at, it's obsessively-compulsively fixating on something no matter how annoying or unwanted it is ;)
  8. Ha! Yeah, it's kind of ironic that PAD's run is...

    Ha! Yeah, it's kind of ironic that PAD's run is probably the longest a Supergirl solo book and he managed to do it with the convoluted mess that was the Post-Crisis incarnation of the character.
  9. Pete Ross is never mentioned in the pilot, is he?...

    Pete Ross is never mentioned in the pilot, is he? He’s a character that has always seemed lost in the woods for decades. The Smallville TV essentially replaced him with Chloe and the comics have had...
  10. Englehart and, I think, Volkes did a wonderful...

    Englehart and, I think, Volkes did a wonderful Congorilla miniseries back in the 90s that I really adored. I think the character could still work, but I can also see how the white colonialist...
  11. The speed at which you're throwing up...

    The speed at which you're throwing up counterpoints to strawman arguments no one in this thread is making is pretty remarkable. It might be more helpful if you disengage from what you've no doubt...
  12. Since I never cut off the characters I was...

    Since I never cut off the characters I was talking about at the 50s, your point is kinda redundant.

    I was mostly referring to the 30s to the 60s, which indeed comprise the majority of the most...
  13. I need some help with a skippable viewing of Smallville

    I have a pair of students that got hooked by the pilot of Smallville and want to dive into the series proper. The problem is Smallville is a decade long and chock full of mediocre to outright...
  14. This all comes down to the approach for me....

    This all comes down to the approach for me. Historically, Supergirl has almost never managed to sustain an ongoing solo title for long. I'll give it a shot, as I have for every other Supergirl title...

    As a white guy and Jew, I'm confused by this comment. Just because there have been literally centuries of atrocities and injustices committed against Jews doesn't mean there aren't also Jews who are...
  16. You don't need to view them as white men, but...

    You don't need to view them as white men, but they most certainly were, and mostly Jewish, too. As a half Jewish white man myself, I don't view that as a negative, but it does mean that these...

    I am outraged! Everyone knows we fans buy superhero comics for the kissy parts! Unacceptable! ;)
  18. The whole test pilot turned superhero was much...

    The whole test pilot turned superhero was much more common back in the 50s & 60s, but there’s still a few left. Hal is easily DC’s most prominent test pilot, but there’s also Larry Trainor from the...

    Have you watched this?

    It happens with a lot of franchises after a great creative run ends. Nobody good wants to try to follow it, so the book falls into the hands of lesser creators. To be fair, though, Venditti rebounded...

    God getting punched by a giant green boxing glove is up there for me.

    And Hal giving the entire Earth a time out for being intoxicated was pretty funny, too.

    That issue is probably my favorite...

    Here me out:

    CHILLI ON INFINITE EARTHS, the next big DCU crossover event!
  23. I donít think being a test pilot will ever be a...

    I donít think being a test pilot will ever be a down to earth job, but Iím glad the character still works for you with only that. For me, I think itís the combination of all the various elements of...
  24. I think that's the crux of the problem. When Hal...

    I think that's the crux of the problem. When Hal was first invented, being a test pilot turned space ranger was the height of cool. Now, not so much. My fondness for the character lies largely...

    His yellow peril origins, unfortunately, have not aged as well.
