    I'm entirely with you on that front. Problem is I don't know who I think would be a great PG writer that we haven't seen because she's so niche, and with DC's weak editing I'm definitely worried...

    I'm of the mind that Russell deserves a shot. He's been pretty great on everything I've read from him.

    Well he saved Ollie that way later but that was a reference to DKR in setup so we can't let that color the inspiration. At worst, he did it to stop Ollie like the government wanted him to do with...

    Cosigned. I liked Superman and son, but goddammit Lois was done a great disservice in that status quo.

    Yeah, but the problem with reboots is that there's 80 years of content you're pretending to throw away, but it absolutely will get woven back into the narrative and then it just starts compounding...

    I love the first half of DKR. I just think it falls apart and not just as a fan of Superman, but because it doesn't even respect the rules it sets up and tries to play with. As a construct, Superman...

    Oh, a great many. In fact, a lot of Arthurian legends place the young Pendragon in humble beginnings as a squire who does little more than clean after where others shit and fetching their belongings....

    This is correct, but he also positioned her so that those things could happen. Don't forget the sad state she was in before he brought her back and restored her Kyrptonian origin. Look, Johns isn't...

    Ah yes, DKR. The fight where Bruce gets a ton of help from Robin and Green Arrow while slapping Clark around. It's almost as if Clark showed up just to talk and wasn't taking the fight seriously....

    You magnificent son of a bitch.

    Putting "obvious choice" made me pause and think, okay, I won't go with those two because yeah that's too obvious. What stands out the most after them?

    Yeah and that's kind of why I don't want him taking over Ollie.

    Oliver being on any sort of agency that is in some way a super spy organization is really, really weird for him. I've toyed with...

    I wasn't a fan either, but on paper it's the best fit for them. If they weren't focused on adapting the Legion to Supergirl, I think starting with it would have enabled them to do something a lot...

    The seven makes it a bit harder because it really would just be Jefferson running the Outsiders since a lot of characters he interacts with have their own families, so to speak.

    For example, I...

    It's a lot easier to write a character in an ensemble book because all you need is solid characterization. When writing an adventure, you need to also bring in thematic elements, supporting cast to...

    There are those rumors of her getting a movie and JLD is something WB/AT&T has kept an eye on (even if they had to shoehorn Batman into it), so there's more hope for Zee than some other characters,...

    See, manwhohaseverything hates the Space Prince aspect and I kind of don't love it either. I don't like Clark essentially being a royal figure because it conflicts with his nature as a man of the...

    I feel for you and SacredKnight, dude. You guys must not be enjoying the double scoop of Living Kents and Superdad and Supermarriage waffle cone DC's got on special right now.

    Gen Lost was definitely Winick, who I normally cannot stand, but he did fine there. Giffen was co-plotting, I think, so maybe that's why. He took over the solo after Jimmy/Amanda's run and man did it...

    I actually liked the most recent run. Sucks it got cut short, but outside of the Ordway run and Jeff Smith's take, it's been the most I've enjoyed Captain Marvel in print for a very long time.

    If it does go full comics, I really hope DC redoubles their efforts in scanning, cleaning and digitizing old books they've yet to do. A lot of their library is unaccounted for. Obviously they'd be...

    I disagree a bit about Johns misusing Karen in JSA. She definitely was mopier than usual, but he was leaning into the tragedy of her story so it'd be strange if she didn't get bent out of shape over...
