    I also second (thrid?) the Joker. Often, people open their own businesses to have control of their schedules (usually doesn't work out that way, but that's what some are after). Now, I'll grant you,...

    Robin: From the 1940 introduction until the name change, but especially during the late 1960s-late 1970s, when he was more a guest star, but a highly self-actualized one

    Time will tell. IMO, there's a Paradise Lost element to AI in that it is imbued with not only the abilities of its creator, but some of their faults as well (The Wall Street Journal's AI Report has...

    It's a bit dated since it's creator passed, but the late Don Markstein's Toonopedia site has articles devoted to both of those characters, among a legion of others.

    Watching Babylon 5 in 2019

    So, been rewatching B5 (still in S1). Some of it has a real, relevant gut-punch.

    Like multiple races doing stupid stuff because they're frightened, arrogant, or angry.

    Like examples of Our...

    I was not a fan of Nu52. I thought it was a good idea ruined by crap execution.

    I was a fan of Crisis, and Post-Crisis DCU. Looking back, however, Crisis was pretty bad in most departments, and...

    I'm normally a "stick with cannon" guy, but I can see an exception here. Getting BL out from under the shadow of operating in Superman's turf is for the best. What's more, he wouldn't be the first DC...

    I'm getting a headache! Can Supes just go back to leaping tall buildings, interrogating sleazy lobbyists by playing high-toss, and slamming domestic-batterers into walls?

    I like the Legion answer. Of course a fun one-off would replay some of the key scenes of Doctor Manhattan trying to figure it out, and concealed behind him, Mister Mxyzptlk snickering at the chaos...

    There were light inferences from "The Flash of Two Worlds" on about the dates things happened that tied them to the era. An example would be the dates used in the Huntress' origin specifying she was...

    IMO, that's a huge problem. It deprives the character of any sense of stakes.

    Let Lionmane kill Hawkman? No problem, there's an oblivious reincarnated version just down the street whose memory...

    Amazing thing: 35 years later, we're just now realizing that erasing history is bad for a comics continuity..

    And that's going to become a problem. Those numbers are going to add up to ever more crotchety ages as we go. So this is a fix that can only last a finite period of time, unless DC commits to turning...

    I will say two things for this effort:
    If imperfect, it's still an impressive attempt at being comprehensive
    If DC imposes some discipline on authors, it offers a great opportunity to do Astro...

    As much as I loved All-Star Squadron, IMO, that's really where DC got it's mania for dates. Up to that point, yeah, we all knew GA DC had stories set in WWII, but prior to All-SS, the stories didn't...

    We may as all relax and wait for the next reboot. By fixing their origins to a specific point in time, DC's assured that we'll be doing this again as soon as somebody in a few years starts asking "so...

    I really like that idea.

    Unless they're concerned about overpopulation by people that they know (from hard experience) lack their discipline.

    If you really want to condemn evil, The Red Skull is a candidate. Of course, the film would probably become a cinematic The Turner Diaries, and probably shouldn't be done.

    I don't care how much of an artistic triumph Joker is, turning villains into protagonists without a clear, unambiguous redemption arc, is not good for us.

    It made sense in the TV show where it originated, as it so sharply contrasted with Stewart's relationship with Hawkgirl. However, outside that context, yeah, I agree with you.

    As an aside, I still...
