    Watching Babylon 5 in 2019

    So, been rewatching B5 (still in S1). Some of it has a real, relevant gut-punch.

    Like multiple races doing stupid stuff because they're frightened, arrogant, or angry.

    Like examples of Our...

    I was not a fan of Nu52. I thought it was a good idea ruined by crap execution.

    I was a fan of Crisis, and Post-Crisis DCU. Looking back, however, Crisis was pretty bad in most departments, and...

    I'm normally a "stick with cannon" guy, but I can see an exception here. Getting BL out from under the shadow of operating in Superman's turf is for the best. What's more, he wouldn't be the first DC...

    I'm getting a headache! Can Supes just go back to leaping tall buildings, interrogating sleazy lobbyists by playing high-toss, and slamming domestic-batterers into walls?

    I like the Legion answer. Of course a fun one-off would replay some of the key scenes of Doctor Manhattan trying to figure it out, and concealed behind him, Mister Mxyzptlk snickering at the chaos...

    There were light inferences from "The Flash of Two Worlds" on about the dates things happened that tied them to the era. An example would be the dates used in the Huntress' origin specifying she was...

    IMO, that's a huge problem. It deprives the character of any sense of stakes.

    Let Lionmane kill Hawkman? No problem, there's an oblivious reincarnated version just down the street whose memory...

    And that's going to become a problem. Those numbers are going to add up to ever more crotchety ages as we go. So this is a fix that can only last a finite period of time, unless DC commits to turning...

    I will say two things for this effort:
    If imperfect, it's still an impressive attempt at being comprehensive
    If DC imposes some discipline on authors, it offers a great opportunity to do Astro...

    As much as I loved All-Star Squadron, IMO, that's really where DC got it's mania for dates. Up to that point, yeah, we all knew GA DC had stories set in WWII, but prior to All-SS, the stories didn't...

    We may as all relax and wait for the next reboot. By fixing their origins to a specific point in time, DC's assured that we'll be doing this again as soon as somebody in a few years starts asking "so...

    I really like that idea.

    Unless they're concerned about overpopulation by people that they know (from hard experience) lack their discipline.

    If you really want to condemn evil, The Red Skull is a candidate. Of course, the film would probably become a cinematic The Turner Diaries, and probably shouldn't be done.

    I don't care how much of an artistic triumph Joker is, turning villains into protagonists without a clear, unambiguous redemption arc, is not good for us.

    It made sense in the TV show where it originated, as it so sharply contrasted with Stewart's relationship with Hawkgirl. However, outside that context, yeah, I agree with you.

    As an aside, I still...

    These royal characters were created when comics were largely accepted as being for kids. Bogging a Liege down with the complexities of a constitutional monarchy carved a lot of cool off them for most...
  22. All Live Action Marvel Coming Under Feige and Co.

    I'm surprised I'm the first one to mention the reports of Disney consolidating all live-action Marvel Properties under Marvel Studios. What do you think that means? Any hope for MAoS to enter the big...

    Unless I'm seriously mistaken, Perez didn't create Barbara/Cheetah, she was a Bronze Age character that replaced Priscilla, and Perez just adapted the more recent incarnation.
