    Since you invoked my name, I guess I have to think up an answer. I don't believe any of them were that fast relative to later powers. But I know that Superman and Flash were both fast enough to...

    I realize you're just being funny ;), but the racist egg was when she was still at full strength and under Robert Kanigher, Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. The Modesty Blaise style Diana Prince began...

    I think the supernatural heroes are even more restricted than the science based ones. In fiction, it always seems like there's consequences for every magic act and sometimes it's better not to do...

    While they had some success with their horror/supernatural/mature comics in the 1980s, I feel like they were on the next level by the early 1990s with many titles in that area--what would eventually...

    If not Superman, then who? Someone has to be the top super-hero. Who else should it be?

    April 18th is the date ACTION was registered with the Library of Congress, not the date it went on sale.

    I'd rather think that Superman was born on that fateful night when Jerry Siegel thought him...

    Yep. I just went off on a tangent. I assume we all know the D.C. stuff, so I didn't get much into all that.

    Another important creation that I stupidly missed--but I added to the above list now--is...

    I think the thing that's against D.C. in its later decades is that it was always number 2. And Marvel was number 1. However, it beat Marvel/Atlas/Timely in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s--it wasn't even...

    I think the most thankless job was being an Editor-in-Chief at Marvel Comics. It seems to me like every guy who had the post got bad-mouthed by the people who had to work for him. This is probably...

    Actually, I tried to put them in chronological order, so they wouldn't be "all over the calendar." But no, I didn't have some grand thesis in mind. MajorHoy's post reminded me that it wasn't actually...

    For sheer output, maybe Paul S. Newman.

    But among my personal favourites, it's hard to say. As soon as I think of one, then I think of another just as important to me.

    Most of the writers I love are dead. I guess the only ones left that I'd like to see return are Cary Bates, Elliot S! Maggin and Bob Rozakis. They should have a ticker-tape parade and give them the...

    National Allied which would later be Detective Comics, Inc., started in January of 1935. So really their decades should start on the 5s--1935 - 1944, 1945 - 1954, 1955 - 1964, etc. I'm a pedant.

    I took it as who was considered the greatest at the time. And by that, I mean not who I think really was the greatest, but just who fandom in general thought was the greatest.

    If you ask me who I...

    Fawcett published the last issue of THE MARVEL FAMILY in September 1953--that was it for the three Cheeses. This was right at the time of the big 3-D comics boom.

    Charlton began publication of...

    At the time, I would have said Denny O'Neil. I don't even have to think about it, that's the name that comes to mind. Stan Lee had worn out his welcome by then and was considered old hat. He had that...

    Since the Code came in the middle of the decade it splits the 1950s down the middle. But in terms of D.C, it didn't matter that much because they already had their own in-house Code, which they had...

    I like the 1950s, because the demise of super-heroes gave other genres a chance to shine. I think the real glory days of National Comics/D.C. were when they were a big tent and put out comics for...

    I don't know. For me the numbers don't add up.

    In North America, the Baby Boom began in 1946 (nine months after the war ended). So by 1954, the first Boomers would be eight years old--which seems...

    In Canada, it's not definite when a person can get the second shot. It can be months.

    Here's something that adds to my anxieties. Suppose the vaccine you got is later withdrawn before you get your...

    DAS LEBEN DER ANDEREN (2006)--in English this was released as THE LIVES OF OTHERS, but I think that's a slight mistranslation and it should really be "The Life of Others" as "das Leben" is singular...

    In the Kurt Busiek/George Perez JLA/AVENGERS they say that the D.C. Universe isn't bound by the same rules that bind the Marvel Universe, which is why our super-heroes can do so many things that...

    Prior to 1988 and THE KILLING JOKE, it doesn't seem to me that there was any clear attitude on the part of the Joker. He starts out as an enigmatic killer, with no real back story, then transforms...

    It's reprinted in SUPERMAN IN THE EIGHTIES (2006), SHOWCASE PRESENTS: THE SPECTRE (2012), SHOWCASE PRESENTS: DC COMICS PRESENTS: THE SUPERMAN TEAM-UPS Vol. 2 (2013). Stupidly it's not reprinted in...

    Surely one of the greatest Man of Steel stories ever done is "Where No Superman Has Gone Before" by Len Wein, Jim Starlin and Romeo Tanghal--in DC COMICS PRESENTS 29 (January 1981), the conclusion of...
