    Most of their redesigns and costumes are awful. Cosmic Boy looks less like the Legion's Captain America than he does like Magnetic Kid, Ultra Boy's suit colors are all messed up, Star Boy's golden...

    I wrote a piece of fanfiction a few years ago on this forum. Very short. Only a few paragraphs.

    In it, Clark was attending college in Wichita, I think, and he avoided all contact with DC media...

    I can't pretend to know the best of what Guy can offer as a character. I'm mostly familiar with him as a cartoonish buffoon, like I think most casual fans are. That said, when I read some Red...

    I found out there's a Dan Garrett radio show and I am here for it. Only lasted a few months, apparently, but I still like what I've heard of it!

    Less successful than Superman's radio show (duh!)...

    Batman & Robin is hilarious. It's not my favorite Batman movie but look, it's up there. You just have to put aside the desire for a serious Batman flick and strap yourself in for a ride.

    It's kind of annoying how few of the characters on the second Legion image here even look anything like they historically have. I was all set to question the need to change so many of the characters'...

    There's a handful of details about the Bronze Age Superman I really don't like or don't consider to be part of my ideal of the character, like his occasionally inconsistent characterization, or his...

    Yeah, of course. I'd love for Nightwing to embrace his Superman heritage more. The idea of Nightwing, at least for me, has always been that Robin grows up to be someone who embodies parts of both...

    I liked the comic a lot, but I fundamentally agree with Jim Kelly here that it doesn't feel like there's any pay-off. I did appreciate the basic shtick of framing a single story with multiple zany...

    I haven't been reading that long - I mean, for definitely well over a decade, but not for decades. And I only started reading monthly books on the reg, instead of picking up trades exclusively, in...

    Lots of folks are saying the Shazam Fam, and I couldn't agree more. Thunderworld was my favorite Shazam comic in a long time, and I concur that Captain Marvel being the # 1 hero on his own world is a...

    I think the DCAU Superman starts off really good, and becomes... something else.

    See, as a Superman fan, STAS does a lot for me. The worldbuilding of Superman's universe (not just Metropolis), the...

    I have a weird relationship with DC character ages... I like Batman to be in his forties to give him room for all the sidekicks he needs in his backstory, and also just because, well, I like Older...

    I was going to say him too, along with his appearance in the Justice League animated series. I haven't read a whole lot of comics with him, but anyone who can both mess with your head that badly, and...

    I always loved Chris, and when Jon first showed up I remember thinking how much less I liked him compared to Chris... I eventually warmed up to Jon, but I've still got a very soft spot in my heart...

    Right, Superman's "bioelectric aura" extends beyond his body whenever he picks up something really heavy, or grabs something at high speed, to keep its structural integrity intact. This is how he...

    I have two seemingly different but fully compatible answers:

    "I don't like it," and "yes, he's absolutely a good pick".

    He tends to make movies that are a certain breed of dumb fun, but he does...

    So in the original version from the '30s and '40s, Superman's outfit wasn't alien, but a material he invented himself. Sometime between then and the '50s, the trend of Superman's blanket coming from...

    I personally started calling him "Kal" as something of a reaction against that trend DKR started where certain people, in and out of universe, exclusively call him "Clark" regardless of whether he's...

    In my earliest memory of Superman, I already knew who he was. My grandpa had got me a Fleischer cartoons tape for my third or fourth birthday. It had "The Magnetic Telescope," "Japoteurs," and...

    Huh, I'm thinking of the pre-Crisis Maggin style of Superman, where Clark is like a really elaborate alternate reality game Superman plays. Obviously that doesn't apply to the whole pre-Crisis era,...

    "Fans and creators" is right. There's a whole fan culture that makes it pretty much impossible to move forward, because fans are constantly debating about what the past should be, and if we don't...

    Yeah, he's killed people. He killed two General Zods, two additional Kryptonian criminals, Doomsday multiple times, tried to kill Henshaw at least once, and killed Imperiex in Our Worlds At War and...
