    On the Robin and Jimmy thing, I don't think he hates Robin or Jimmy, I just think Snyder didn't really have a place for them in his version of the DCU. Nolan didn't have a place for Robin either, so...
  2. Yeah, I agree with some of that. The New Gods'...

    Yeah, I agree with some of that. The New Gods' structure points to a greater depth, there's no doubt about that. But, Kirby never spells out what that depth is or how it works, not even in a pair of...

    Yeah, that drives me nuts too - or comparing him to Dr. Manhattan is another common one.

    Dr. Manhattan struggles to care about the world. Superman cares so much it hurts. Dr. Manhattan felt he...

    I mean, absolutely none of what you just said is from Kirby. And I think that's the biggest problem with the New Gods overall. Other writers have added so many other things on top of them that...

    Yeah, I agree with most of the last few posts. The heroes are better in season 3 than in the first two seasons, they're awful in those first two seasons, and ultimately the reason seems pretty clear...

    None of y'all gonna bring up "Knives Out"? The Last Jedi is my favorite Star Wars movie by a lot, ya'll are wrong for dissing it, but Knives Out is the bigger reason I'd want to see Rian Johnson do a...

    Funnily enough, before The Rise of Skywalker came out, I was totally on board with the idea of JJ Abrams doing Superman - albeit with Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, as I am aggressively against a...

    Honestly, I like very little of the adult heroes in YJ.

    Superman's better in season 3 than in the previous two, I suppose. Aquaman is pretty solid in that one s1 episode. Zatara's a nice touch,...

    Shoot, for a split second I misread "Unproduced" as "Upcoming" and I got really excited.

    Yeah, Michelle "MJ" Jones doesn't really do it for me, either. Where's that party girl covering the trauma of an abusive childhood by dancing all night? Who's this sarcastic nerd?

    I actually like...

    I think Birds of Prey was really excellent, but it's true that it didn't get the sales they were hoping for. Couldn't tell you why for sure, but I suspect it was undermarketed, and that coming out at...

    I'm normally a real sitckler for keeping Kirby's characters as close to Kirby's vision as possible, but I always thought the original Forager was more than a little unintentionally fascistic. I'm...

    I really like Hulk myself. No other movie goes for that psychological side of the character, which is really the most important thing about him.

    Never saw Spawn.

    I agree that Harley's pushed because she's popular, and not popular because she was pushed.

    I do think certain general creative movements with Harley have happened as a way to capitalize on her...

    Are these controversial? I agree, both Darkseid and Joker should be given a break, and probably Luthor too at this point.

    I was gung-ho for Luthor during the "Good Lex" arc early on in Rebirth,...

    Everything in a Zack Snyder DC movie is from somewhere in a comic, he rarely if ever just makes something up. He's clearly very passionate about these characters, and he's thought a lot about them...

    My experience with Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Justice League, and the fan reaction to them, was kind of like this:

    Man of Steel was really good, and most fans seemed to like it. A lot of...

    Like OP here, I would have a hard time rating the "DCAU Superman" as a whole - because he changes so much as the different shows go on. I won't rank him overall in the poll, because I just don't...

    Funnily enough, I don't like Byrne's run all that much overall, but I love the arc with Superboy and the Legion in it, even though I think the Legion and Superman, and even Byrne's own run*, might...

    Now that's possibly the only movie with Cavill's Superman I'd be against - a reboot wherein Clark has to deal with coming to terms with his alien heritage. Because... we already got that one, you...

    I kind of don't want to see more of Leto's Joker just because Jared Leto himself seems to be such a creep, and I don't really want him to get any more money or success, rather than because I have a...

    Come to think of it, I'm not a huge Johns fan either. I think Superman and the Legion deals in too much to the "Superman as a miserable lonely kid" thing, which I don't think really comes from...

    Interesting. I like Batman & Robin because it's hilarious, I like Batman v Superman because it's literary, I like Hulk because it's true to the psychological themes of the comics, and I think Iron...

    Yeah. I just can't get behind that detail - or the post-Crisis anti-Krypton approach to begin with.

    I'm always kind of torn on the post-Crisis Krypton to begin with. On the one hand, it actually...

    Interesting. Lashina was always my favorite Fury, after Barda, because of her stint feigning amnesia in Suicide Squad. Because of that, I can imagine that she might actually be a more subversive mate...
