    It is. The reasons have been discussed on other threads, but it's a fun topic. Personally, I see 3 main ones: A small group was creating all the content, and it was easier to recycle villains than...

    I really don't think of it as annexing as Marvel was pretty highly interconnected from its beginning. Electro, for example, was used as a Daredevil antagonist pretty early in the latter's title (in a...

    Pre-Crisis? Hippolyta, who repeatedly dinked with her memory. Post-Crisis? The Pantheon who were constantly using her as their go-to rook in their divine games. Since then? The cascade of writers who...

    Kal-el's dual identity works because his muscular control is so absolute, Clark Kent and Superman look just different enough to confound both human observers and AI. It takes him less effort than it...

    That's because the FF were a retooled version of TCotU by the creator of both.

    I'm of two minds about secret identities. They are a foundational trope of the genre, and I'd hate to see them go. They were also a way to speak to comics primary audience (children) who held a...

    Flash probably could have bridged the times as is, but GL might have been a different matter. "Magic" wasn't cool any more by the mid-1950s. It was space travel and aliens that were all the rage....

    I can't say that I have a favorite. I have some I dislike (won't go down that trail). Some belong to a certain time, and they are best for that time, i.e. Hal fits best in the Silver Age. I'd prefer...

    I'm rewatching S1 of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. Coulson just said "Our job just keeps getting easier...between Facebook, Instagram, and Flikr, people are suveilling themselves." Having read today's...

    Yeah, the lasso and bracelets, along with Green Lantern's battery/ring are DC's Mjolnir. They are the Ultimate Instruments. Anything that can destroy them should blow the entire planet apart.

    So murderous criminal cartels brazenly operating in the open are better than serial kills stalking in the shadows?

    Yeah, that's an extreme analogy. However, no more so than claiming there's some...

    Need one? Probably not. Hurt by one? Probably not.

    Superheroics as a whole have some troubling implications, ranging from vigilantism to fascism. I don't see where secret identities significantly...

    I did like him as Phantasm.

    That's probably enough going on to merit three films rather than three acts. I'd be good with that.

    No. We're stating that American aspirations have become more narcissistic over the last few of generations.

    In a world like this, I can see why some find secret identities a hard sell for anyone other than Superman or the street vigilante types. Too many Americans would rather project themselves on a...

    I could see Barry, but Clark's been through multiple phases. I will say that Superman has been pretty consistent ever since they dialed back his social avenger depiction in the late 1930s, but how...

    I loved that story, but I wish it had been Wally's lightning bolt, rather than Barry's that Barry transformed into.

    I guess it depends on which version of the T-Bolts you prefer. Half the fun of Busiek's group was their backstory (not to mention one of the best plot twists in all comics, ever). I can see how it...

    Since his revival, probably so. But he's a far span from the one sane guy in a nutty world that he was in his original Quality run.

    I'd throw a vote for Ras al Ghul. He's been brilliant,...

    Better start counting to ten slowly. The MCU never did the world-building it would take to give us Busiek's T-Bolts. I know they had only so many films to work with, but I really would have loved to...
