    If it’s never a good thing why does he keep doing it?

    Is Jason Aaron the only writer that relentlessly overpowers his characters? I seem to recall Mark Waid increasing Wally West’s abilities…and...

    If Flash wants to travel in time, he can use a time machine. Oh…and he could kill millions of people if he goes rogue…unless some other heroes are fast enough to catch him.

    They are all fictional characters, none of them “need” to do anything but feature in interesting stories.

    I’ve never bought into the “logic” that Wonder Woman’s and Superman’s powers should be limited by reference to other DC heroes.

    Nothing that you want them to do, maybe…

    But plenty of us want both Wonder Woman and Superman to be top tier speedsters and not completely outclassed by Flash. (After all how many Flashes, and...

    Presently reading through Greg Rucka’s run.

    Too much tragedy?

    I always smile a bit at the almost universal conceit that Batman is a tragic character but Superman isn’t.

    Completely agree.

    Surely nobody buys the line that a powered young Clark will wait till he’s 18 plus before using those powers to help people.

    So to write a sensible origin without Superboy...

    Once you’ve steeled yourself about the lack of hirsute adornment, think you’re really enjoy the read...overall the run reminded me a lot of the Frank Miller Daredevil run.

    Precisely.

    People on the board buying large wedges of their own shares (if at full market price rather than some sweetheart deal) is a fairly good sign that’s all’s well and large disposals by...
