    Ever read Alan Moore's Marvelman?

    At the end of that story, Marvelman and co. take over the world, and it ultimately ushers in a new golden age, but there's a lot of lingering questions about what...

    My only concern with Emma Watson is that she's 30. I would want Kara to be much younger, college age at the oldest, and fairly emotionally open, and unsure of herself and the world, like she was...

    I know there are a few stories where Kal is raised by someone else and becomes a monster or a weapon, like the episode of Superboy where he's raised by a fascist and becomes a fascist for example, or...

    I don't think there's a good argument for making her Kal's sister. I don't see what it would change. They're already each others' only living relative, so it wouldn't make them closer or anything...

    In the JLTAS two-parter "A Better World," one of those bargain basement Evil Supermen you see all over the place these days has taken over the world following what looks vaguely like a nuclear crisis...

    True! About a month ago I rewatched "the Laughing Fish" and was astounded to find that I actually really like Joker when he's being funny and not trying to destroy the bedrock of Batman's life or the...

    The hum of a refrigerator and the ticking of several clocks in this and adjacent rooms, as the floorboards occasionally crick and creak, settling down for the night, these sounds interrupted only by...

    I heard it as Superman, Tarzan, Holmes, Robin Hood, and Mickey Mouse, as the most iconic pop culture icons.

    That said, that was said back in the mid 20th century, I believe. If any characters have...

    I wonder how the contest winner felt about being killed off by Prometheus before he even got to meet the Justice League. I didn't know he was based on a real person.

    I like Retro (the character,)...

    All retcons in which one character's role in a story is replaced with another, are unsustainable at best. Iron Munro might be the best version of that, but I still think he only really works because...

    Didio had ups and downs, but under his heading, DC put out some of my favorite stories - and some stories I really didn't love as well.

    I agree that basically he delivered content that sold pretty...

    Despite the '90s overall reputation in the realm of comics, DC has a pretty strong collection of stories during that period.

    The latter half of the '80s and the '90s are probably the most...

    Thanks!

    Yeah, Rosenbaum is generally lauded as the greatest live action Luthor with very good reason!

    I don't really have a rule of thumb with regards to Luthor's backstory or time periods -...

    That's true, and maybe I should have made that clearer in my post, haha! Luthor still caused their destruction, accidentally or not, and assigned Superman total responsibility. He's as blinded by...

    But that's the thing, right, I'm pretty sure the callousness and ease with which Luthor kills King (in Action Comics # 407, I discovered)- and plans to kill King's son Mike in turn, indicates that...

    Routh's Superman isn't literally supposed to be Reeve's Superman, he's more like a distant folk memory of him.
    That's as true in Superman Returns as it is in Crisis. Returns obviously isn't...

    I believe that story is referenced in the issue I mentioned wherein Thomas had Luthor threaten to blow up the world in DC Special Series # 26. Do you happen to remember what issue that story with...

    I really don't have any time for that idea at all.

    I mean, I jest, but I really do strongly dislike the idea! ;)

    I'd like him to wear the suit he wore in Crisis, with the black background on the KC "S". It's unique, and it looks really good.

    This is something that I think about a lot with regard to Earth 1 Lex - and maybe just Lex in general. Different Luthor writers often write him in totally irreconcilable ways, and nowhere is that...

    Routh was robbed twice, and any content he can get, he should get. Now that doesn't mean I wouldn't rather he get an HBO Max series, but if "what he can get" is a role in the Flash movie, then hell...

    'cause Socrates is a li'l b*tch, that's why.

    No in all honesty, I don't think Socrates is a good move here. He's mostly known for just tearing everything down, right? Not on board with that....

    Superman # 417 features an imaginary story where Kal just straight up grows up on Mars. I've never read it, but I remembered the cover. Pretty similar to what you posted.

    I think I had event fatigue before I ever once read an event. I just noticed, as a more detached fan than I later became, that Marvel and DC both had huge sprawling, unwieldy stories occasionally,...
