    I do agree that Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew are tailor-made for animation and plushy toys.

    But, DC never seems to know what gold it has in its vaults. If they had worked more closely with...

    I don't think the Light Lass costume was a fan design. I've never seen any indication it was not a Cockrum original.

    Given how Betty Boop was created to be a sexpot flapper girl in the 1930s, I can already see the problems trying to sell that to today's audience.

    However, if you change the character to be an...

    For the Friday the 13th series, my favorite final girl was Ginny, played by Amy Steel, in Part 2. She was the first to survive Jason, and I think she had a bit more grit than the other finals. The...

    The Legion has been blessed with a lot of great artists, and they generally brought their A-game to the book.

    However, since I began reading Legion with Mike Grell, he'll always be my sentimental...

    KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS - First time I was disappointed by a Laika movie. Both the story and characters were uninteresting to me. Also, the movie looked too CGI and not stop-motioney enough. ...

    I don't agree with that because even in their heyday, there were no members of the NTT or LSH that were as breakout-popular as Wolverine, Gambit, Rogue, etc. And, I do think that a lot of the X-Men...

    Well, I'm not a fan, but I'm not a hater of the show, either. However, I feel that when all was said and done, the show didn't stick the landing and ending up being a disappointment. The journey...

    Some people brought up the X-Men, but while NTT and LSH were popular in the 1980s, they don't have the fundamental gravitas at their cores that X-Men does.

    The X-Men has the persecuted minority...

    I've only seen Lost once -- on DVD a few years ago -- but I remember the smart guy they introduced in Season 5, I think (the American guy with the 2 British parents), kept saying "whatever happened,...

    1930s actor Buster Crabbe probably played the most amount of heroic roles from comic books, comic strips, and pulps:

    - Tarzan
    - Flash Gordon
    - Buck Rogers
    - Red Barry
    - Thun'da (a short-lived...

    Switching to primetime soaps for a second:

    DALLAS - of course, the dream season (DVD Season 9). Even if Bobby had not died, the Angelica Nero character and storyline was idiotic and a failed...

    Any Friday the 13th after Part IV: The Final Chapter

    Any Halloween after the first. I did like IV, H20, and Zombie's first, but they're all pretty ignorable.

    Any Terminator after Part 2:...

    I'd agree that DC Comics back in the 1970s weren't really written to be "pivotal." Of course, every cover promised that something pivotal was going to happen within the comic, but it was mostly just...

    Does Thundarr the Barbarian count as a superhero?

    Not my first-ever comic, but my first LEGION comic was the issue before yours: Superboy 203, which was Mike Grell's first issue on pencils and where Invisible Kid gets killed by Validus.

    I would simply say the Pre-Crisis Legion -- certainly the pre-5YL Legion.

    The original Legion was the only one that was popular. Everything else was just hoping for that level of popularity, but...

    I'm not in the loop as to what the "headband" thing is referring to.

    I don't know about any of this.

    First, in the Entertainment Weekly article linked at the OP, we don't really get a sense that Jeph Loeb actually said "nobody gives a shit about Asian people." To...

    With Superfriends, the Wendy-Marvin theme was actually completely different from the Zan-Jayna themes even though they feel the same in spirit. All Superfriends themes from "All-New Super Friends...

    I believe Ray Fisher that Whedon may have been verbally abusive to him and the other cast/crew members, but tyrannical directors on a power trip who are abusive to their casts/crews goes all the way...

    In general, I liked Identity Crisis. I like mystery stories, and I liked how previous continuity was used to set the story in a specific era of the past that I remembered.

    However, I wasn't crazy...

    My memory isn't that Bosom Buddies "ditched the Billy Joel theme" while the show was originally on. It was just that in syndication, they dubbed in a new theme to avoid paying for the song anymore. ...
