    Right, but using either Luke or Mary could be plausible. Ryan? There's really no way to do it with any semblance of logic it behind it, IMO.

    I understand what you're saying, but why don't they make her empress of Freedonia, too? I don't see any value at all making her CEO, so why do it? At least Luke, Mary, and even Alice have more of a...

    There are many things I can wave away, while other things I can't. Ryan as CEO doesn't remotely past that credibility test - even for a superhero show.

    I'm pretty sure the people in charge are more concerned about losing money than anything else, FWIW.

    If there is no more corporation, then she would be only a pretend CEO.

    That was indeed truly bad, but this actually might be worse. Does anybody know of a multi-billion dollar corporation whose board of directors approved of a candidate with the qualifications Ryan...

    It's been there as far back as her first appearance, so I'm in total agreement with you.

    Agreed. Anything to show the program isn't single-character driven would be preferable, IMO.

    I follow you now. Well, I have come into a couple of other series late written by other authors, which prompted me to start them from the beginning. Yes, many won't do that, but I guess enough will...

    As someone who considered him to be my favorite actor of my childhood (the '70s) , I was very moved seeing William Shatner make it into space today.

    Then they should have called it The JSA instead. It's not like it had to be named after a single character.

    I lover her work, too. IMO, she's a cut and above the average writer in her field.

    As for your concern, I haven't got to that point yet (this is my tenth novel from her), but I may feel the same...

    I don't think it's a CW thing. Stargirl was doing it on HBO last season, FWIW.

    Heh. Though I was very young, I can recall when they were saying that years ago. Even as a kid, I thought it was silly (I have never bought into children knowing more than their elders). Besides, I...

    That's the problem with so many superheroes marooned on a program ostensibly about a single one. Better off creating anthology programs instead where the focus could be on a particular hero and do...

    Agreed, especially since it makes more sense in regard to the Robins. That's why Bruce being confirmed to be in late twenties during the Bronze Age was plausible.

    Unless specifically mentioned in a comic book, nobody is in their forties or beyond. It doesn't matter what any of us think here, but what DC says (or doesn't say) about it.

    Yeah, it's sometimes hard figuring out a B picture pre-Code. For example, a '40s movie that's only 60-75 minutes will always be a B. Earlier films, however, are not always that easy to spot. Having...

    Though he was very entertaining, Hackman's Luthor was the least like Lex in comparison to the CB version. I don't even think it's close, either.

    Talbot was a lead, but never in an A picture. I guess James Cagney, Dick Powell, Errol Flynn, Edward G. Robinson, Paul Muni, George Raft, Pat O'Brien, and even Joe. E. Brown made it difficult for...

    Post-COIE, yes, but they were pretty straight about the ages during the Bronze Age.
