    I don't have a favorite, and so didn't vote. Each was right for his time, and I liked them all (although, I will admit Bart comes in a distant last).

    ETA: I will say that Barry's setup as a CSI...

    Except when it didn't, and it dumped you into Earth X, or let The Crime Syndicate loose on you.

    It always felt a little forced to me, and I doubt it would have happened had Firestorm not lost his title. As Willis said to Campbell in Armageddon , it was a lack of options.

    As for what happened...

    Some of them were supposed to look dumb. They were cunning, and streetwise, but not necessarily either intelligent or worldly.

    Video media has an easier time conveying a character's personality. That's not to say comics can't do it, but not as economically.

    The MCU was built on non-A-List actors (even RDJ at the time). Disney probably believes there are legions of actors eager to take up MCU roles.

    I should have thought of that one. The show was far less interesting when Garner's Sydney Bristo's life lost its tether to any world other than the espionage shit hole.

    IMO, they're a lot less hung up on temporal consistency than most on this thread :)

    Gotta say I went Robot Man, choosing to interpret it as Bob Crane, alias Paul Dennis. The original Iron Man.

    James MacArthur's Daniel "Danno" Williams leaving Hawaii 5-0. The show tried a slightly less idealized and more contemporary vibe going forward, but it just wasn't the same again. Presenting the...

    Actually, if I not mistaken, both Nth and Ninth Metal are (or, at least, were) specific to the Golden Age Hawks. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    The Silver-Bronze Age Hawks talked about...

    The golden age stories are what I was mainly thinking of. Flash Comics #1 called Nth's Metal (or "Ninth Metal" as it was originally labeled) Carter Hall's "discovery," but left ambiguous whether that...

    IMO, DC was pretty true to Ditko's BB when the book launched in 1987. I don't know, but it sort of felt like they were hoping for great things from him. Now Giffin over in JL on the other hand? Still...

    Hawkman's Nth metal could make international transport cheap and almost emissions free. You could fly cargo carriers the size of mountains over almost any distance.

    As originally conceived,...

    I thought so as a kid, but I've been rereading the Silver Age (currently in 1966). I'm noticing that there are differences in the characters, just not extreme ones. Green Lantern and Flash probably...
  19. DC might be able to put the name on a cover,...

    DC might be able to put the name on a cover, probably not in a cover's title, and definitely not in the comic's indicia. Of course, DC ain't poking that bear with Disney behind it over one of their...

    Not, I think, radioactive, but he had the same problem as Flash and Green Lantern. Revisions that split his fanbase.

    Got to agree with Kirby on this one. Anyone openly confronting their mental illness has got guts. Very few have the kind of heat on them a presumptive champion in one of the Olympics' most prominent...

    Your point about "legal" is valid. It was probably contestable, but legality would have had to be established in a court contest. DC was in no position to field a challenge; the name wasn't one of...

    Our mileage varies. The ongoing broke up one of the only consistently non-disfunctional couples in comics, and created continuity tangles that DC struggled with all the way through the Nu52 (where he...

    M*A*S*H also came first to my mind, until I recalled that the replacements came pretty early in the series.

    Nice. It almost sounds like the way Butcher treated angels in his Dresden books, vastly powerful, but utterly shorn of agency.
