    A long time since I read...can’t even remember how far I got through series.

    Never hate.

    But a fair amount of leg pulling, of course. And long ago dear old mum gently suggested that I was maybe too old to read comics...but it never came across that she was really worried...

    He gives insanity a bad name..

    Put it this way if he’d been in the team featured in “One flew other the Cuckoo’s Nest” they would been well shafted.

    In general I think DC has “struggled” in recent decades to consistently put out good quality Superman stories, the contrast with Batman has been marked. Maybe, it’s down to this? (Not understanding...

    Lol. How very predictable! It’s a perfect illustration of the “nothing good has ever been done by Western civilisation” mantra that I was commenting on.

    True.

    And I accept your (implied) suggestion that it’s “small beer”. If same standards are applied to Donald T and Elizabeth W...it’s Elizabeth that consistently comes across as a decent person.
