    Life is a little more complicated than that, particularly for gay people born and raised during the mid-20th Century. I'm sure there's going to be more nuance to Alan's past relationships with women...

    Agreed about Hal being pansexual, but I think it's unlikely that DC is going to pursue that much, particularly when they've now got Alan as a closeted gay man in the 1940s, which might be a little...

    I hope the folks at DC who've lost their jobs today land on their feet and this most recent corporate shakeup lead to a stronger company moving forward that further shifts its focus away from chasing...

    I did a revamp of the late ‘60s DC era. Take a look.

    Hope you are feeling better from Covid.

    As for Hal's mistreatment, it mostly stems from fans whose first exposure to the character were during the brief period of time in which he was DC's most...

    Taking a break for your own mental and emotional health are always a great idea. I think you've been taking the treatment of the character too seriously (and pessimistically) for far too long...

    I have no problem with Steppenwulf having a bunch of different looks. Even Kirby redesigned him when he came back to him for the Super Powers line. The defining feature of the character is his axe....

    A completely evil Luthor isn't very compelling to me. There needs to be some vestiges of humanity left in him underneath the raging ego and and the ruthless sociopath. Otherwise, he's just Earthbound...

    Absolutely Superman vs Muhammad Ali. Can't believe I forgot that one.

    Those Starlin comics are also great.

    Which issues by Maggin are considered his best outside of his novels?

    It's kind of shocking to me that I've been enjoying DCeased and Injustice: Year Zero more than pretty much everything DC is putting out in their main books, with the notable exception of Morrison &...
  12. What are the definitive Bronze Age Superman stories?

    For the Man Who Has Everything and Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow are pretty much the only stories that I know of that are universally pointed to by fans. Elliot S. Maggin's Miracle Monday...

    When they gave Black Lightning his post-Infinite Crisis origin, they retconned his two kids into the story as being there from the beginning. While it's clear Tony Isabella hates the idea, I think...

    I have been loving this series so far, but King burned me too badly with Heroes in Crisis for me to have a lot of faith that Strange Adventures isn't going to leave Adam and Alanna in an unusable...

    The weird thing is, as much as I love this scene, it makes no sense in terms of the story's timeline. How did Hal join the Air Force in peacetime, serve through the entire Korean War from 1950 to...

    Agreed. I initially thought it was too truncated, but I've shown it to enough students with no prior knowledge of the comic and it always works like gangbusters for them.

    That said, I would have...

    Worst: Millennium and Genesis were both lame cash-grabs, but I haven't read either Amazons Attack nor Trinity War because of how bad their reputations are.

    Best: I love Sinestro Corps War, and I...

    Ooooo, what are the other two?

    Mine are New Frontier, Sinestro Corps War, and Hal's whole arc during Crisis on Infinite Earths.

    I loves me some Ultra-Humanite so I am digging this so far. I like the new twist on his brain swapping shtick.

    Whatever this is, I am down for it. I've loved everything Tom Taylor has done so far, despite being utterly indifferent to the core ideas behind some of the comics he's written like DCeased and...

    Neither the Golden nor Silver Age comics were known for giving their characters much in the way of distinct personalities. The appeal was the high concept stories, powers and high adventure. However,...

    I don't know who called it, but whomever guessed that this Ted Kord is the one from the Dark Multiverse Infinite Crisis issue is right on the money.

    This is Ted Kord, but not the one Max shot in...

    Which is why they switched back to the old origins for Supergirl and Power Girl as soon as Mike Carlin was replaced with Dan Didio, who understand that their backstories were pointlessly convoluted. ...

    I am really enjoying this, despite only getting a measly 1 page of Sook art.

    I am not a longtime Legion fan, so I don't know if this is typical Cosmic Boy behavior, but he is not coming off well...
