    Pure tradition suggests to me that Mandarin belongs with Iron Man, and as a larger, global threat. However, I can't see Disney letting Marvel position their conflict as an East.v.West struggle in...

    Never saw them outside of the Who's Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe #9 (1985), but I instantly thought The Olympian was blisteringly cool. Of course, keeping up with 50 heroes...

    The first entry of Deathlok into the main MU that I remember was back in the 1980s, as part of Marvel Two-in-One's Project Pegasus Saga. Later in the 1980s, he turned up in the pages of Captain...

    That seems unclear. I haven't read the originals, but Don Markham was pretty thorough with his research, and tagged Golden Age Ka-Zar as dwelling in Equatorial Africa. Alternatively, Wikipedia has...

    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...

    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...

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