    I think "officially" Dick's on the reserve list. Or the "break in case of emergency" kit, anyway.

    But practically every adult hero is on one of those lists and Dick has only been called in two,...

    Of course not, but the people around him do and they rarely let an insult pass.

    I maintain that Smash is too special to turn into an attack on current events. Plenty of other stories to adapt for...

    I'm just happy he's maybe getting a chance to do it right. I really want to see what Cavill is capable of with the right people behind the camera and script. If that's just in a team up movie, okay....

    F*cking right I am!

    Give me Smash, done Pixar style and made for families. Don't screw with the story, just be completely loyal to the source material. Theatrical release, with a quick jump into...

    That's how it *should* be written. And once in a while that's how it is actually written. But most of the time, it's like that example someone mentioned upthread where just having magic in the air...

    Hmm. Well my first thought is "I'll believe it when I see it."

    My second thought is that WB should crawl on their hands and knees and beg Cavill to reprise the role, and promise him anything he...

    I've been looking at it from the perspective that Superman needs a big clean win.

    That, and Smash being set in the 40's is just awesome for a lot of reasons. You know me; I love me my Golden Age...

    No, he's definitely written sometimes as being more vulnerable to magic than the average guy. It doesn't just seem that way, it *is* that way.....depending on the writer at least, the good ones know...

    You got a point.

    I don't know if Superman is in the best position to be the one dropping that anvil right now, but you got a point.

    Sh*t, now you're appealing to my sense of social...

    I think people get hung up on exactly what the names mean.

    In the Golden Age, the character thought of himself as "Clark Kent" because he didn't know his origin and had no other name to use until...

    Well, if the goal was to create a perfect, Utopian society then yeah the JSA failed. Ultimately they failed to really make much of a dent even in the US, as the McCarthy trials prove.

    It very well could be. As you say, we don't know what the contract says.

    And if it turns out that Diamond couldn't have done things any differently for whatever reason/s, then okay. But as it...

    The only way Diamond can be viewed as *not* being a monopoly is because comics are legally lumped in with magazines, and since magazines are distributed by multiple companies, Diamond avoided the...

    Heavy is the head that wears the crown.

    Clark isn't the highest selling comic character, but he's still *the* comic character. He started it all and is still the most well known superhero on...

    Smash could very much work as a modern day story, and be just as poignant and on-the-nose.

    But I don't actually think that's a good idea. At least not right now.

    There was indeed. You're right, the issue itself makes the argument that the Elite's brand of justice is gratuitous. Shame that Clark couldn't muster even that much of a rebuttal to defend his own...

    And if the Legion hadn't been cut out of Clark's origin thirty-odd years ago, we'd say it's as integral to Clark's development as Bruce's time training is to Batman's.

    So if DC gave you a book with kid Jon, you'd pass on it because it's set "a couple years ago." Am I reading that right? Because it's pandering to give you what you want? Sorry, I'm not following your...
