    The COIE comic book, for better or worse, rewrote DC continuity forever, its effects being felt to this very day. The TV Arrowverse is unlikely to endure for as long, but do you see the COIE TV...

    Unexpected DC hits?

    Which characters or titles throughout DC history, which initially didn't appear to hold much promise or were expected to do well, defied all odds to become runaway hits and ongoing success stories?

    The ROM license is presently with IDW Comics. IDW did a run a few years ago, but it wasn't nearly as successful as the Marvel run of the 1980s. The problem was that Marvel built Rom's mythos...

    I think Rom was their only action toy, and it tanked hard. The toy was a complete failure, but improbably, the Marvel Comic became an unexpected hit and lasted for 75 issues (including five or six...

    Marvel books from the late 1970s and early 1980s adapted from toys of the time, and somehow turned out better in the comics than they seemed to have a right to be.

    Wally West isn't a murderer. What happened was an accident. At worst, it was involuntary manslaughter (and even that characterization would be shaky). The problem lies more in the cover-up that...

    Well, Marvel can tell me that those GODZILLA, SHOGUN WARRIORS, and ROM stories I read during my youth in the 1970s and early 1980s are still part of their present continuity, but it's hard to sustain...

    Wally West as Multiverse explorer/protector. I've *vaguely* suggested something like that before. ;)

    Geoff Johns, yes. Paul Levitz, no. Levitz's calling card is keeping Silver/Bronze Age heroes dead and buried.

    The 1990s weren't sweet times for ALL DC fans, you know? ;)

    In a way, DOOMSDAY CLOCK has *already* "fixed" continuity, insofar as we now have a viable in-comic explanation for Golden Age, Silver/Bronze Age, Post-COIE, New 52, and present day Superman that...

    I thought this whole affair was going to be a retread of FOREVER EVIL, but it actually looks quite intriguing.

    I saw that more as a function of Han being old and rusty than Rey being super-great.

    It's a bit annoying that these days, when discussing the Flash/Barry Allen with newer fans, it's sometimes necessary to explain to them that for the first fifty years of Barry's history, his mother...

    It's coming up on fifty years since the Beatles broke up, and to this day, we don't have the definitive word on why they did. Even Paul and Ringo don't remember the reason anymore, and if John and...

    Of course, he had a huge hand in creating the DC Bronze Age in the first place. I guess the Giordano giveth, and the Giordano taketh away.

    I enjoyed his years as the original Robin, and didn't necessarily feel it needed to end...at least not in 1984. I wasn't ready to relinquish the Bronze Age status quo, and were it my call, I would...

    Who do we blame for ending Dick Grayson's days as Robin, killing off Barry Allen in COIE, eliminating the original DC Multiverse, and bringing the curtain down on the Bronze Age, Bored? :)
