    The problem is comic book movies draw on a thin sliver of what's available in comic books. I'd like to see them looking for material in the wider landscape.

    Nostalgia comics can never really replicate the era they're referencing, unfortunately.

    That and cursive singing. I don't mind accented singing, where the accent is genuine to a place or culture, but cursive singing seems to be an invented accent that doesn't exist in reality. It's so...

    Well obviously they do co-exist. I'm not blind. I'm just saying how I like my Batman comics and my own preferences. It's not anything for anyone else to agree with or disagree with.
  5. Do you? I'm not sure you do from all that you...

    Do you? I'm not sure you do from all that you posted. You might actually agree with me and we've just got our wires crossed.

    I've always made a distinction between the Batman in the solo stories in his own book and the Batman in the team-up stories in other books (WORLD'S FINEST COMICS, THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD, JUSTICE...

    Woke was a perfectly okay word until the people against those who were so-called woke took hold of it and made it a slur. Funny how the opposite side of a thing always gets away with that. Now they...

    Yuban--“That’s odd, Jim never has a second cup of coffee at home…” (parodied in AIRPLANE! with Lee Bryant, the same woman from the commercial).

    The Old Wizard's name used to be Shazamo. When he was the Champion of Canaan, his magic word was "VLAREM!"
  10. Poll: Maybe if they couldn't say "Shazam" without...

    Maybe if they couldn't say "Shazam" without accidentally changing, that would push them to give each other nicknames--just like in the old comics Billy and Mary always called Shazam the Old Wizard.

    Some movie sites make a big deal about the variable pricing on movie tickets these days. But this is nothing new. Movie tickets have always had fluctuating prices, since the very beginning.

    Does it have Mrs. Olson?
  13. Poll: In the movie SHAZAM!, I don't believe they ever...

    In the movie SHAZAM!, I don't believe they ever call Billy by that name. They have fun with different names and I think that's what I prefer. Sometimes heroes never actually go by the name in the...

    And I only started buying Superman comics at the very end of 1966. So I just missed the very best time to be a Superman reader. Even then, I think I instinctively knew this. And ever since I've been...

    Up until the 1990s, there wasn't such a huge proliferation of Bat-villains with super-powers and freakish mutations. Killer Croc was just a gangster with a skin condition. Poison Ivy was a regular...

    Although I tried out two issues of Fox & Sekowsky JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA in the 1960s, I never got the bug for the book until I picked up an issue by Mike Friedrich, Dick Dillin and Joe Giella in...

    My parents always drank instant coffee, except when company came over (originally they would bring out the big percolator but later had a drip coffee maker). They liked Folger's but it wasn't...

    Like I've said, I don't really have an informed opiinon on most of these movies, so I haven't voted on the poll.

    I saw WONDER WOMAN in the theatre nine times. And then I bought my own copy of the...

    When I turn on my P.C. (not my Mac), I always get a homepage that comes up and has "news" items on it. I have no choice in this matter--maybe there's some way to filter this out, but I'm not that...

    I think what gives me a greater affection for the earlier comics is that I felt like the guys creating those comics were my friends and family. Obviously this was delusional and I knew very little...

    Fawcett comics called Mary the Marvel Girl. When she was revived in the 1970s, National Periodicals called her the Shazam Girl.

    But before she was Phoenix, Jean Grey was Marvel Girl. There is also...

    I think they were trying to do that. BATMAN BEGINS and SUPERMAN RETURNS are similar sounding names for movies. I think they intentionally wanted us to think they were related and might have tried to...

    Hoppy the Magic Bunny was actually acquired from Fawcett by Charlton, which continued publication of FUNNY ANIMALS starting with issue 84 (April 1954). But now the rabbit was called Happy or Hoppy...
  24. Poll: The thing is the Distinguished Competition...

    The thing is the Distinguished Competition doesn't want to over-advertise for MarvelTM. They might be able to get away with using the word "marvel"--but they would be pushing it if they tried to use...

    There's a good number of characters that have no powers or very limited powers that would fit into this kind of universe. I really liked THE LIBERTY FILES with the Bat, the Clock and the Owl. If...
