    Yeah exactly, although to be fair "some fans" are mainly people on this website, which is sharply oriented towards superheroes. So there's that. But it's still kind of jarring when someone says...

    This, my hope is that her goodwill with creators will draw them back to work with DC properties. With Harras gone, it feels like a cloud has been lifted, particularly with female creators.

    Both "All-Star Batman and Robin" and DKSA are fantastic. Year 100 is among the very best Batman stories of the last 20 years.

    On the other hand, "The Cult" is completely terrible except for the...

    Didn't we have this exact conversation back in the DCYou days? This thread is some serious deja vu. I always thought DCYou was a good direction in terms of looser continuity and more freedom from...

    I see, thanks for the update. I rarely read comic news so I guess my knowledge of these things is generally outdated. So I guess an in-continuity answer to the Mobius Chair's answer is not...

    I thought Johns said it's in continuity? Here's a quote from this very site:

    To be clear, I wasn't suggesting that's why they called her that. It was a joke. To me, the name smells like a generic decision-by-committee, run-it-by-the-focus-group kind of thing. Or it could be...

    Ryan Reynolds starred in a pretty terrible movie back in the early 2000s called "Van Wilder". The name "Ryan Wilder" seems like the sort of blunder-by-committee that you would expect from network TV.

    I imagine the Joker storyline was mandated. Assuming it was, I'm hoping he really runs with the whole being relatively broke thing and we see a less omniscient Batman now.

    I really liked this issue. A nice back to basics reset. Hopefully that's the last we see of Catwoman for a while as she has her own stuff to do, I'm sure.
