    I don’t read current comics in “detail”, so I may well be wrong in what I’m about to suggest (it’s mainly based on reading the Lee/ Kirby, Byrne, and Hickman Fantastic Four runs a couple of years...

    I’d have said the Woodrue storyline in the great Alan Moore Swamp Thing run dealt with this explicitly...the Justice League is shown as helpless against the full force of nature (the Green), and...

    I enjoyed Jeff Lemire...though maybe quite a few of the central ideas were “borrowed” from Miller Daredevil and Fraction Iron Fist runs...wouldn’t mind seeing him return.

    In general I’d like to...

    I have never been able to understand that type of characterisation of what happens in DKR.

    To me what actually happen so:-

    1/ Superman is temporarily weakened by dealing with a nuclear missile....

    I agree.

    And I think...given weight of continuity..that that both characters place overwhelming weight on being sexually faithful to each other.

    I think it’s been obvious for ages that a...

    A tangent..of course...but I’ve said several times that I’d like Ben to be powered up, the one time strong man of the link has been the weakest link in the team for decades now. And moved...

    That's good to hear (I read my comics years in arrears these days...but hopefully will get round to reading this mini one day.)

    Let's hope it's developed logically (i.e. Sue is shown as working on...

    All good stuff. But I think Sue is already streets ahead of the other three in the power stakes. Indeed I think there's at least a plausible case to say that apart from the reality warpers at full...

    I agree. There are all sorts of candidates for No 2...apart from ones you mention...geezers like T.O. Morrow, Ray Palmer, Niles Caulder spring to mind. By quoting Luthor, Bruce, Holt as the "obvious"...

    Batman doesn’t have super intelligence?

    Try running that one past the Batman forum.

    He’s routinely rated as one of top three humans...Luthor, Bruce, Mr Terrific.
  11. Things like controlling speeds of other objects...

    Things like controlling speeds of other objects is I think substantially different from ability to move own body at super speed.

    An analogy might be if Superman could just move objects by power of...

    At a guess the Infinite Mass Punch...

    As you suggested earlier it can all be explained away by the “speed force” (or speed magic as I tend to think about it).

    The thing about the speed...

    But logically it does mean his invulnerability is up there with Superman’s...when Flash hits something with his hand or arm, an equal and opposite force is applied to him, to the thing he hits.

    It’s the preference of many Superman fans..especially those steeped in the Silver Age..fans that Superman is top echelon in his core powers, intelligence, vision, strength, speed, physical...

    That’s a good general question, I think.

    My personal opinion is that it’s usually a mistake for writers to come back to old stories years later...but one that will often be made for all sorts of...

    A long time since I read...can’t even remember how far I got through series.

    For me, thought series lost its way with decision to give both leads powers...I’d have actually preferred neither to...

    Never hate.

    But a fair amount of leg pulling, of course. And long ago dear old mum gently suggested that I was maybe too old to read comics...but it never came across that she was really worried...

    He gives insanity a bad name..

    Put it this way if he’d been in the team featured in “One flew other the Cuckoo’s Nest” they would been well shafted.
