    The X-Men were also created in a time where assimilation was a goal. Most marginalized groups now seem to push toward distinct identity-based communities with equal privilege.

    Magneto and his (then) entire Brotherhood got de-aged to infants in a Defenders story that came along while the X-Men's title was on hiatus. Claremont had a Shiar agent re-age him to his physical...

    JLA 123 didn't suggest it, Bates and Maggin explicitly stated it. Just nobody else ever picked it up.

    I agree, it wouldn't be easy, but it would side-step all the nagging age questions.

    I get that, I was just curious why they went from his literary name to the code name.

    Jeez! Between making my mouth water, and weeping for what might have been, that list is dehydrating me.

    Bates and Maggin proposed what I thought a fairly elegant solution to the entire JSA age thing back in 1975: simply assume time passes more slowly on E2 than on E1.

    Robin (the original) is not a creature of his time exactly, but his origin is. Circuses are disappearing.

    I'd agree that Hal Jordan's occupation hasn't aged well. Being a pilot is still neat, but...

    The subject of this thread is the publisher/creators. The subject of your (💯 legit) complaint is the fans. Not the same thing.

    Wait. What?

    Your Second must contact My Second.

    Because, clearly, only a duel may settel the disparagement of such a wonderful (if judiciously applied) condiment.

    Just my opinion, but I kind of suspect that was Thomas doing all he could to pay a respectful homage to DC's magnificent history before Wolfman and Perez overwrote it. I think he echoed that by...

    I was being a jerk.

    As I understand it, especially in Greece and Japan, there's some debate about whether it was song or poetry recital.

    But I ain't an expert.

    One of the tough things about doing the movies is they want all of them to have a Big Space Battle. The only one that didn't deliver that (TMP) is generally considered the weakest of the bunch...

    Um, no. That's the obvious, real-world-view interpretation, but the in-verse validity of that comparison came to a screeching halt, barely more than a year into their existence, with Cap's Kooky...

    I was going to say both Hawkgirl/man and Elongated Man, but Frontier already had it covered.

    Even discounting Civil War, the Avengers have been more likely to draw serious public ire over their history. Their membership has brought out bigots of every stripe against them. Further, their...

    My apologies if false. If I see a denial from Paramount, I'll edit the post and dump the link.

    They were fun, but it's probably for the best they were on the team together for limited runs. I doubt even Stark could have paid for the regular wreckage their personalities would have inflicted on...

    I don't even know if there was an Atlantis in E2. Golden Age Aquaman was an experiment of his father's. The Atlantis retcon came later, but I'm not sure when.

    This was late in the second run of All-Star Comics, #74 published in 1978. The last issue of the title's revival before the DC Implosion got it.
