    I haven't read "Superheavy" yet, but some of my favorite Batman stories feature Dick in the batsuit. Dick and Gordon have been around almost as long as Bruce, have many fans, and have earned their...

    The money isn't *why* he's Batgod, but to me it will always be a part of the formula that lead to Batgod: the continual upping of the ante.

    Just to clarify my stance: The larger Bruce's stories...

    Maybe we could close this arc with Harvey and Dick getting together over a cup of coffee to commiserate over what it's like to fall victim to a flabbergastingly stupid editorial decision.

    Two-Face...

    Well, the mental image of Bruce's granny dentures makes *me* smile.

    I miss Elseworlds. In the nineties you could still sometimes go full Silver Age crazy without any pretense to canonicity.
  5. I've been waiting for a story about all the...

    I've been waiting for a story about all the reconstructive procedures Bruce, Dick, and Co. would need just to look passably normal. False teeth, new bridge for the nose, cybernetic hips, etc.

    I...

    I'd much rather see a Bruce who had less money, fewer connections, and less advanced technology, and was more independent and private.

    Little does DC care about what I want.

    Anyhow. I think the...

    For me, the Batfamily is pretty much what we're shown in the Batcave in "Death of the Family": Bruce, Dick, Jason, Tim, Damian, Barbara, and Alfred. I'd guess that most of the writers and many of the...

    Aw, poor Tim.

    I don't care a fig about most of the extended Batfamily, but I do like Tim, and the Robins generally. I think his problem is that he's such a middle son; Dick, Jason, and Damian...

    I don't think it matters who's with Babs, be it Dick or Bruce or anybody else. The writers will play with it, but it won't stick. She will date just about everybody eventually and DC will break them...

    That would be too reasonable for them.

    They've gotten really good at breaking things they could fix if they used their brains and acted quickly. Instead they stand around gaping like stupid little...

    Hard to do when she's everywhere. Her presence on a cover does reduce the likelihood that I will buy the book. I hold high hopes for Sejic's "Harleen," but that's because it looks unlike any other...

    There will be on the cover. But only on the cover.

    edit: Or maybe King will pull a real shocker and request a cover relevant to the manifest content of the issue. Or???!!! the cover will be tame...

    I like Ivy when she's written well and can sometimes, with an effort, like Harley for a moment. But her fans make it hard. One of my main grievances against Harley is that she has *always* gotten...

    Beautiful.

    I wish this were being made into a statue.

    More a minority position than an unpopular opinion, but: I have one hell of a time accepting resurrections if the death was carefully worked out and the resurrection occurs without due explanation.

    King's run is, in all seriousness, like an extremely LOOOOOOOOOONG student film--the voiceover poetry recitals, the self-insistent moodiness, the Oedipal themes, the irreverence toward the heritage,...

    The only Deathstroke I've read was "Deathstroke: Arkham," but honestly it felt like a parody of (or protest against), more than a participant in, the Kingverse, with all is deflated males and...

    I can't see how "just doing his job" is any excuse for King. The Nightwing thing isn't the one spot on an otherwise impeccable record of good stewardship and sound common sense. King appears...

    The Joker's murder of poor Jason is practically a running gag in Joker media. I have a James Groman Joker figure that has a Jason-shaped appendage sutured to his arm. If the "doll" had been Barbara,...

    I'll take Snyder's fanboyish excesses over King's Feelings Porn and devil-may-care attitude to canon, continuity, and characterization any day.

    I'd fully support a story where they interacted or where their stories were run in parallel to each other. I can't get behind a one night stand, though. I can't imagine the writers behaving like...

    I can only hope Fabok's trolling or exaggerating. From what I've seen, though, he seems serious.

    Anymore, my own interest in a comic invariably plummets once controversy is brought in as a...

    I have my preferences, but it really depends on the story's tone and subject matter. I'm prepared to accept different characterizations. Within the past week I've met with several distinct versions...
