    Although gravity made a kind of sense in the early days, when it was like John Carter of Mars and Superman was simply better at stuff because he was in a relatively lighter gravity--it became a...

    There was a period in THE NEW TEEN TITANS where Dick Grayson was just Dick Grayson--he wasn't Robin anymore and he wasn't yet Nightwing. Wally quit the team early on. Roy wasn't featured much during...

    I like the first part of this. That's my take. Yellow--on/red--off. But I don't like the idea that his cells store the energy. Cells are too macro level. I prefer to think that there's something...

    I just find it ridiculous that anyone would allow themselves to drool over a collectable comic book and destroy its resale value. That's insanity.

    I realize that a twelve year old in those days had a tough time finding any porn--but a mainstream comic book hardly seems like it would have satisfied that interest.

    If I could talk to Paul Kupperberg, I would ask him what his plans were for Lisa Davis. He clearly was headed toward some big plot twist for Clark Kent's love interest, but THE NEW ADVENTURES OF...

    In Canada, when I was in high school in the 1970s, while we were multi-cultural there weren't a lot of African-Americans--most Black kids came from other countries and had their own culture. But...

    I think they wanted to have a young actor to balance out the ages of those in the Justice League--never mind that they already had a young actor playing Victor Stone. But that was in 2016 when Ezra...

    I'd have to go back and rewatch that episode where Ed went undercover on board the Krill ship. I thought they were like Muslims--people of the book. The Ahnkana is like their Quran. To the degree...

    With inscrutable beings, sometimes less is more. Hire a good actor, like John de Lancie, and Bob's your uncle. I found with that certain inscrutable presence in THE ORVILLE there were too many...

    Of course, if you included the Legion of Super-Pets as a greater part of the Legion, then you'd have some sentient characters that don't look human. Maybe the translation of the Interlac is wrong and...

    This also seems arbitary. And it's one of those things that seems true but isn't really in our physical universe. In relativity theory, we all move through space-time and we all warp space-time as we...

    I guess it's a controversial opinion because it was never true. Jerry Siegel went ahead and created the Spectre (with Bernard Bailey). And that was in 1940, when Superman was not as powerful as he...

    I don't like the use of the word "nostalgia." When people use it, I think they mean something else from the dictionary meaning. Just don't use the word "nostalgia." Come up with a different word that...

    I started to wonder why people in the U.S. say "Canadian bacon" when what they really mean is back bacon. I found that it's all the fault of Mother Britain. Apparently, back in colonial times, the...

    The way Vic originally talked in the comic didn't make sense to a lot of us at the time. They tried to explain it as Vic trying to sound street--but it was pretty clumsy. That's not something that...

    I saw ROAD WARRIOR when it first came out. I remember my film studies prof. being over the moon--she loved that movie a lot. It was something that everyone was talking about.

    My final position on this is to wait. The movie is not scheduled to come out for almost a year. A lot can happen in that time. There's nothing to be done now as it is.

    The prime directive that THE ORVILLE has taken from Star Trek is the one that goes "First send your most senior officers into a potentially dangerous situation."

    I haven't seen a lot of these shows from the last twenty odd years.

    The one show I liked the best was THE LEFTOVERS. I think it was pretty good throughout. But it had to reinvent itself every...

    As I say, I haven't read any Bendis Legion. I'm okay with re-skinning and re-colouring most of the Legion. They are aliens after all--you could just argue that the colourists got it wrong before--and...
