    I hate the Quitely style of art and I really think Miller should have done this separately from The Dark Knight Returns universe but whatever. Let's see how this goes.

    Yeah, for a story that tries so hard to ape the good old Loeb days of Superman/Batman, it was surprisingly light on the occasional uber-gay subtext of the latter.

    Untrue. If a character is interesting, then minimal push will be enough to launch them to popularity. If they are bland and boring, then continuously forcing them on an audience that made it clear...

    Outside of the regulars like Dick, Jason, Damian, Barbara and some others like Cassandra Cain, the quality starts to rapidly drop off. Some that once were interesting (Tim Drake) are now long overdue...

    That's not a valid defense. Just because they are in other cities or otherwise doing fuck all doesn't mean they need to exist at all. They are superfluous and add nothing that no-one else already...

    Yeah, because an appreciation thread with a handful of people posting is totally proof that people love Duke Thomas.



    Hardly a minority. People might have been indifferent to him at first but...

    Didn't Scott Snyder plan on doing something like this with Duke Thomas? He only didn't go through with it because nobody actually liked Duke Thomas.

    Don't really give a damn. Most Telltale "games" are not really games so much as interactive movies where none of your choices really matter. For all that I loathe "Detroit: Become Human" at least...

    Quite a few times, actually. Frankly, given Bendis' disastrous track record on Supes so far, I really wish they'd put him on something else, like Wonder Woman or Green Arrow or somewhere his damage...

    Well, King's run has definitely pushed Catwoman more than Batman and Tynion's Detective Comics run for a long time was all about pushing the Bat-Family at the expense of making Batman look like a...

    Legion of Super-Heroes always survived by being one of those "not-quite-mainstream-not-quite-niche" titles that you occasionally get really, really good stories out of. I can't even remember the last...

    Don't know where you live but I've known at least two Dicks, one of them in his 20's, the other in his 30's. Changing it would be like changing Peter Parker's name to Paul Parker because Peter is...
  13. Not remotely the same thing. The symbol and the...

    Not remotely the same thing. The symbol and the costume are an integral part of mainstream Superman along with Krypton and crash-landing on Earth. The Daily Planet is not. It is optional furniture...

    Well, by next movie, I assume you mean a reboot, so...

    Cut out The Daily Planet. It's really not that interesting and hell, we might actually get an opportunity to do something new with Superman....

    The flip-out, double-bladed lightsaber serves no useful function. Kind of how Kylo Ren's crossguard lightsaber is more of a safety hazard than anything else, Rey's new lightsaber serves absolutely no...

    When did "Dick" stop being acceptable for modern fans anyway? People still use it today in the real world. If your only justification for changing it is "haha, penis reference", then the problem...

    I didn't know eating junk food gave you the figure of a supermodel.

    3 issues is too little. Miller needs at least 6 to flesh this out, even the best of the best would be hard-pressed to write a story as dense as this in 3 issues.

    Other than that, interesting take....

    Red Son was an average story arc but I'm curious what Man of Tomorrow will bring. My first association was For Tomorrow but hoping to high heavens that's not anywhere close to where they are drawing...

    Oh lovely, another Superman to get upstaged by Super-Kara and sing her endless praises.



    Oh, so the same stalker-ish, mopey, creepy Superman that we got in Returns?

    Yeah, Routh seems like a...

    Not any more than anyone else like Jimmy or Kara or Perry or Cat or Lana or the Kents, etc, etc. In fact, I'd argue that Lois gets more attention in Superman comics than what she really warrants and...

    Superman fights a monster in a fight for his life, he dies killing it, an impostor/impostors rise up to replace him but do a shitty job of it, then Superman comes back to life to kick their ass and...

    It's unnecessary garbage. The whole story already got done as a great 2007 adaption which cut out all the pointless fluff in favor of the actual meat of the story. And no matter what anyone says, ALL...

    While I can appreciate SM/WW, I will forever hold that the New 52's "You're Strong - I Know" was one of the stupidest, shallowest ways to kick off the whole thing (it basically validates that SM and...

    Pre-New-52 continuity movies were also mostly garbage, though. Wonder Woman movie was garbage. Justice League: Doom was garbage. Superman vs. The Elite was garbage. Superman: Unbound was dull at...
