    I agree on both counts. Unlike the trunks, the capes are too iconic to get rid of at this point, Robanker.

    Yep.

    If management wants to use Barbara as tech support, so be it. Cass or Steph were fine Batgirls in the past and would be so in the future, IMO. But the idea that it wouldn't be a stepdown for...

    Yeah, Oracle is just not on the same level as Batgirl. Working the computers is not the same as being a superhero. Is there someone who would want their favorite crimefighter be relegated to master...

    Same here, though Infantino was the first (I read Barry's origin in Secret Origins #1 back in 1973).

    Hated? Nah. Scratch my head over the idea that the most popular superhero is outdated? Oh, definitely that! :D



    Bruce is just as rich as he was back in '39, but a dollar doesn't buy what it...

    I can't personally do anything beyond scolding :), but a super moderator or administrator can ban for a time or even permanently a poster who appears to be disrupting a thread and/or forum.

    Guys, let's keep it civil here. Not a request, either.

    I know, that's why I said Cyborg instead. Now if this were 2002, then you would be correct.

    A random pick would have been Black Racer or Ron Troupe (now that's really random!), not the most recognizable African-American superhero at DC. :)

    Do people still use the word "hobo" nowadays?...

    Do people still use the word "hobo" nowadays? When my brother and I dressed up like one for Halloween back in the '70s it was okay, but that was a million years ago. :)

    New books: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1962) by Ken Kesey.

    He was fairly satisfied with the investigation until he realized he still wasn't going to play Cyborg. :)

    What I'm getting from this is that none of this is going to oust Johns from his job, IMO.
  16. It's more accurate to say that Marvel is a...

    It's more accurate to say that Marvel is a descendant of Atlas Comics, the latter forming after the Timely era ended. Marvel started from scratch in the early '60s, with the exception of brining back...

    He attacks Hamada because he's the biggest obstacle for getting his career back on track, which I believe is now a futile endeavor at this point.

    So was I, which is when I started to formulate my views. Again, the people most vocal about it here always seemed to have someone to take Vic's place in the lineup. Now I was specifically addressing...

    But by then, Hal was back in the saddle (blocking John) and going gangbusters, so Cyborg was the best choice available not named Static based on his recognizability.

    Not the best move on DC's part, to be sure.

    As was the case in 2011, Cyborg made the JLA in '85 because he was the most recognizable black superhero for DC (besides Black Vulcan, of course :)).
  22. I don't know. If the New 52 had been created 17...

    I don't know. If the New 52 had been created 17 years ago, John Stewart would have been in the JL instead due to his popularity. As the lead of his own shown, Static would have been an even more...

    I personally don't like the idea of jumping on the bandwagon against people I don't like (whether they be celebrity, politician, etc.) I'm not saying it's easy sometimes, mind you :), but I try to...

    They have to defend Hamada, because not doing so means that he and WB were in a conspiracy against Fisher (which I doubt, FWIW). As for Johns, that he still works for the company after the...

    I can't say I would be shocked if any of that happens.
