    I don't believe it's a dumb question, but it's obvious that it's being interpreted all different ways here.

    Agreed, Jim. DC started following their own Code when the Joker stopped killing people during the early '40s.
  3. But it's impossible to compare decades based on...

    But it's impossible to compare decades based on quality when there were different rules, audiences, and economic factors involved. It's like comparing Super Friends with Justice League Unlimited when...

    The decade(s) where DC was #1 would have to be the best, so basically almost none of us remember it (I was a toddler at the tail end of DC's glory days).
  5. I don't think Flash should be a million times...

    I don't think Flash should be a million times faster, but he definitely should be the fastest man alive.
  6. Superman's bag of tricks can beat anybody else's....

    Superman's bag of tricks can beat anybody else's. No, he isn't omnipotent and can be licked temporarily, but in the end he will win (except against Batman, of course ;)). It doesn't matter what...

    Latest Kindle reads: the short story The Vampire Maid (1900) by Hume Nisbet and the novel Fool's Fate (2004) - the latter being the final installment from The Tawny Man Trilogy by Robin Hobb.

    It was really just an excuse for DC to use instead of saying "We need to shake things up with something major or we're out of business, guys!" If sales had been as good or better than Marvel's,...

    They were immersed in typical Burton weirdness (which Gotham emulated), but they weren't funny films. Unlike Adam West, Keaton and Kilmer played it seriously. Clooney tried to straddle the line, but...

    The show was great comedy (even nominated for an Emmy as such), but let's not pretend it was really Batman in the comics (except for a time during the show's run).

    I haven't forgotten anything. Of the four films, there is only one that completely soaked in the old television show vibe. The other three are just not on the same level (even Batman Forever), IMO....

    While I understand people who want multiple Darkseids, I don't understand why it's dumb not to have them. Seems pretty logical to only have one in this context.

    The Batman '66 campiness of B & R killed its chances at the box office more than anything else, IMO.

    My first comic was 15 cents, so I can definitely empathize.

    On the Kindle front, it's the short story The Demon Spell (1894) by Hume Nisbet and then The Saint and Mr. Teal (1933) - the latter being the ninth Simon Templar novel by Leslie Charteris.

    Quite a few good choices here, but I selected the relatively underappreciated Skyrocket.

    It's more like "I'm a minority, too" than "some of my best friends are black," IMO.

    YZ for me.

    Oh, creatively, there's always a way to explain it. I would have zero problem with it myself. I'm just tired of Ray E. Coyote going to his next Acme project after the last one didn't work, that's all.

    So Kal-El wouldn't have been related to his black grandfather by blood? I'm pretty sure that would have been spun negatively by Fisher and others, too.
  23. Poll: I'll go with XS, too.

    I'll go with XS, too.
  24. Fisher won't stop until he gets to play Cyborg...

    Fisher won't stop until he gets to play Cyborg again regardless of who is in charge. The Dalai Lama could replace Hamada tomorrow and Ray would be tweeting crap about him instead. :)

    As someone who directs for a living, I'm glad you agree with me. :)
