    It's no big loss if they leave out the island origin or retcon it around.

    It's just a funky Elseworld like John Byrne's Generations minis except the costumes follow classic style guides!

    Instead of viewing the Linearverse as some big continuity initiative, try viewing it as Dan Jurgens' toybox where everything kind of happened somehow.

    I favor each creator who's proven themselves...

    As I said elsewhere, I don't see why Power Girl can't be 50. Plenty of knockout female celebs at that age and it's a gap not covered. She was mentored by a Clark Kent who would be over 100 now back...

    Young adult.

    Like Dick Grayson, she's a first crush character for lots of guys and gals and nonbinary pals. With an aging audience, you either have to deny that aspect of her character or it turns...

    I think we just need a hard reversion to the pre-New 52 version.

    It was the last tenable setup.

    For what it's worth, I think it works better if Supergirl has real history with the team and is...

    Right now or the last 5 years, Hickman would be solid.

    I can't help but think at the time that something like Morrison and Pacheco would have been the right call.

    This is in a nutshell what I would do.

    I would restore them as part of Superman's past and focus on how they fit into Superman's history and Supergirl's.

    From there, we're left with an adult...

    Anyone else find this whole thing ironic since Johns was the one who shoehorned Cyborg in as a founding member of the JL, instead of racebending Barry Allen or giving up a spot for John Stewart or...

    Superman: Reborn already did most of that including setting the Johns/Lee JL after Final Crisis and having Superman wearing the New 52 suit basically from the end of the Electric Saga (around Jon's...

    My recollection from a Bob Rozakis answer column is that the unnamed copy boy at the Daily Star/Planet on Earth-2 was not Jimmy Olsen but was Beany Martin, a nod to the copyboy from the radio serial...

    As a game, I'd have adapted the 2000s Return to Krypton with elements from Godfall and other game franchises like Bioshock.

    You could work in Brainiac, Eradicator, Phantom Zoners...

    They were very adamant about his character being "James". Maybe he has a kid cousin named "Jimmy". Preferably a younger dork type.

    Sometimes these shows misname characters. Winn absolutely should...

    The writers absolutely had thought about going down this route though! Both in the infamous "master plan" and at various other points. And they rejected it. And now that rejection has been walked...

    Because the Doctor was never at any real risk of dying or running out of regenerations.

    Why couldn't we have gotten Howard Overman?

    I guarantee the plots and humor would be more inventive and I doubt we'd have been subjected to this.

    To be absolutely clear: this makes rewatching...

    This also gets into why DC does fairly loose story adaptations/mashups.

    When they do All-Star Superman animated, Morrison gets a check for the story and each new character and they omitted a few...

    Yes. In fact. I know from conversations with people that he did.

    He really viewed his job to be a hate sponge of sorts.

    There's at least three occasions I can think of where somebody else below...

    This is a valid criticism. I'm not defending it. When you see people in comics say that Dan took unnecessary heat or blame, part of what they're talking about is Dan's belief that good business...

    Because Dan had a habit (IMHO a bad one) of freezing characters when he had a big creative team developing a pitch with them. See: Plastic Man, Firestorm. He also micromanaged the crap out of certain...

    Any number of pros could tell you the same thing.

    Fine. Whatever. You bought it because you were supposed to. Same goes for the talent, who he also...

    Very much this.

    Dan was bombarded with pitches from people who wanted to bring back Kara, Barry, Hal, etc.

    Those pitches never stopped. Jurgens would have brought back Kara in 1992 if they'd...

    Right but... This is a bit complicated.

    Dan didn't "hate" Nightwing.

    Nightwing gave him a headache because it created a conflict between making everything as absolutely simple and continuity...
