    I don't want to harsh anyone's buzz--lower level superman stories are fun, I love UNBREAKABLE--but I don't think it's any more realistic to have a guy that's much stronger than any normal man, but...

    Really? I don't remember that episode at all. I would think she's best remembered for being on THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW--but I actually enjoyed her more on her own spin-off show, PHYLLIS--where I...

    I realize that Cloris Leachman is better known for her more significant roles, but with the star's passing I wanted to acknowledge her work as Queen Hippolyta in THE NEW ORIGINAL WONDER WOMAN 1975...

    As they have said Grant Morrison is leaving comic books, after THE GREEN LANTERN, do you think someone else could pick up the Superwatch? It seems to me there are hundreds of ideas that Morrison has...

    L.E.G.I.O.N. was the present day version of the Legion. So they could do that again. I liked it okay, but it wasn't the real Legion for me. However, I can see doing a series like that as a way of...

    Well, there's a whole lot of the classic (pre-1989) Legion that's available to read (which is what I'm doing).

    I've started rewatching LOIS & CLARK from the beginning and to my untrained ear it sounds like the theme composer, Jay Gruska, used elements of the John Williams score for his new work. It has that...

    Well, the Legion sold well in the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s and even in the 1990s. When it didn't do well back then, it was because of stupid editorial decisions (like moving them out of ADVENTURE...

    What's Shawn McManus doing these days? I just simply love his art.

    I did some looking back at the publishing history to see which comic book was dropped first--not counting any one-shots and not including later acquisitions like Quality. In fact the National...

    I was not that unhappy with the Levitz third round on the Legion--but I still dropped it when the New 52 happened, because I dropped everything when the new 52 happened and stopped making that long...

    I hate that everything has to be connected. You use to have comics that existed in their own world and didn't have to be connected with everything else. That's still the case with most entertainment....

    This is a bit of a spoiler, but I was watching the first HOP-A-LONG CASSIDY movie from 1935, which is essentially his origin story, and in it Uncle Ben dies.

    It's Superman because Superman popularized the term super-hero for action heroes. He was super, after all, and a hero. Retroactively you can say that all these other action heroes that came before...

    It's the 32nd century, the United Planets is gone, the Earth has been abandoned. There's no Science Police and no Legion of Super-Heroes. A bunch of young people from different worlds come together...

    If they had just stuck with the 1980s idea that the Legion adventures happen in real time--and therefore the earlier members are adults (they just don't show it because it's a thousand years in the...

    Lois was supposed to learn Clark Kent was Superman in the unpublished "K-Metal from Krypton" story, from 1940.

    Lois and Clark got married in the Superman comic strip in 1949. Alvin Schwartz...

    All of the reasons people have offered are features of the group that made them popular--and at one time one of the most popular groups that the publisher had.

    So many (which maybe I'll talk about in a later post), but the one I always think of when this subject comes up is VEXT (1999). That lasted all of six issues--from Keith Giffen and Mike McKone. It...

    It's more like social media has dumbed down discourse, so movie criticism is reduced to blanket value judgements--this was trash, that was the best, this is stupid, that's too complicated. Movie...

    I didn't really like the Chaykin. I liked the Helfer much more. But the run that I loved the most was the 1973 O'Neil edited comic book with art by Michael Wm. Kaluta, Frank Robbins and E.R. Cruz.

    Every Saturday, of late, I've been reading a story from my Ray Bradbury Bantam Books (that I got in the 1960s and 1970s). I started with THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES, as that's the one with the earliest...
