    I mean as much as I agree with you that this show has a lot of potential to go off the rails, kids getting more attention than Kal, stuff like that - I have no idea what you mean about "keeping the...

    I'm a sucker for the Golden Age, two-fisted adventures with Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder. Always outnumbered, never outfought! I've got a few collections of the newspaper strips and I've read the...

    I've been thinking about the nature of Batman and a couple of variable elements to his character. There's how emotionally approachable he is, how vulnerable he is on a standard adventure, etc.

    I guess theoretically, when the Pocket Earth came into being in the Legion's world during Zero Hour (I think it was Zero Hour), it's possible that its Zone came with it, and that if somebody had...

    Yeah, that's true, I've only read very little Hawkman - almost all of it Hakworld - and everything else I've ever seen with him is in JSA or something - and it's still a continuity heavy mess!

    I think that's a reasonable take. I don't think Damian is particularly good at being Robin. That's not to say he's a bad character. Just that Dick, Jay, Carrie, Tim, and even Steph, all started out...

    I voted for "Iffy", but it sure is true that I wanted Man of Steel II and got this instead. Still, it could be a good show. I'm planning to watch it. We just gotta wait and see if it's any good.

    I hate when people give Diana a formal speech pattern to be honest. When she's very polite in formal situations, that's one thing, but whenever she just doesn't use contractions it just grates on me....

    I rarely pursue Batman or the Green Lantern Corps.

    My idea of Cosmic DC is really caught up in the Legion of Super-Heroes or even L.E.G.I.O.N., and I guess I just never really could get behind a...

    That'd be cool.

    I keep hoping they'll rerelease more of the Dan Garrett stuff and the original Ditko Kord stuff. I've got the Ditko Kord stuff, but it just bugs me that it's hard to get.

    I absolutely disagree with the claim that Sanders has an unrealistic plan. If anyone reading this wants Sanders to have a chance and has yet to vote, don't write the primary off. Get out there and V...

    Did it? Well shoot, I was thinking of checking it out, but not if it spends all its time shitting on Ted!

    And this is what I meant when I said I wished Jaime was exactly the same but just... not a...

    The skis are no sillier than the Silver Surfer's surfboard. I'd definitely advocate keeping them around. I just like them.

    Agreed 100%.

    The thing is, I don't even think the self-doubt thing is a real arc. I think it stands in for major growth, trying to maximize the illusion of change by making the character walk away...

    I think there's an unfair stigma attached to the concept of "flat" or "static" characters. I think the descriptive names themselves contain a judgmental implication. "Flat" sounds boring or lacking...

    Sure! We need more non-binary representation in comics. But it is kind of funny, it's not mythologically accurate, it's just that the writers stopped kind of paying attention. But I'll take my enby...

    What about the Glimmer, that guy from the Wonderworld arc of JLA? DC hasn't used that name in a while, and it's the same naming convention as the Flash.

    Nix Uotan doesn't show up that often, but whenever he does, he is always cosmic in scope.

    Cyborg is definitely cosmic. This guy has been written as having the ability to coordinate hundreds of...

    I prefer Lex growing up in Suicide Slum a lot more than I like him growing up in Smallville, but I like the characterization of the Lex who grew up in Smallville more than the characterization of...

    Yeah, there were a lot of Superman retcons that made a big difference to the Mythos under Byrne. The Birthing Matrix was not one of them.

    Wasn't there a reveal that a 5-D imp similar to Mxyzptlk...

    My concern is that this is the first Legion book since like 2013 or whenever the last one was cancelled. I feel a probably-misguided obligation to buy the Legion... even though I read like five pages...

    I really like that flavor, Ascended. The early New 52 did some good stuff with Jim and Clark hanging out and playing video games, and I was loving it. Jimmy even describes Clark as his best friend at...

    I agree that that's a really nasty trend, that "you need to be a little bit evil in order to be a good hero" idea.

    I was intrigued that in Batman v Superman, Clark's hair was more full-bodied and Superman's was slicked back. I wonder if they were making a Lois and Clark reference.

    Personally, I'm pretty much...
