    The barriers to mass producing enough for billions is not just a few patents. Moderna for example announced it's not enforcing its COVID patents. It's not enough of the vaccine producing...

    There was simply never going to be an easy end to COVID. A worldwide end to COVID would require nearly 5-6 Billion people getting vaccinated. I don't think people realize the complexity of that feat...

    That's not true at all! Didio literally takes credit for it in his letter column in the last Flash issue (for Wally) before Flash Rebirth in gleefully confessing that it was something he wanted to do...

    We are seeing the final death throes of DC Comics. The mass firings by AT&T have deprived them of some of their most experienced staff (for better or for worse).

    In a shared fictional universe like comics, you can have all these interpretations (if you have enough retcons or squint hard enough). The only-one-true-personal-canon-can-reign supreme turned DC...

    And to many people who were born afterwards, Y1 is basically the start of Batman for them. Again privileging one's own personal experiences (of what stories "count") over the opinions/experiences of...

    It would basically be Robinson's Earth-2, but set in the mainline continuity. It basically destroys a huge chunk of the mythology and allure of the JSA just for the sake of "continuity", a fluid...

    Manga (and its links with Japan's animation industry) is a more viable corporate model (compared to Europes BDs) to project soft power. In that they are pretty much successful as we see with the...

    Not really. Damien in that story (Batman 666) was suppose to be immortal since he claimed he sold his soul to the Devil to keep Gotham safe and iirc he survived Gotham PD filling him up with lead...

    They were creations of Dr. Hurt to replace Batman. Morrison's run on the Batman ongoing is pretty much self-contained (since he originally had plans to stick around only until Batman RIP). Hurt's...

    That's not true. The formation of the original JSA is too anchored in WW2 and the Greatest Generation as well as their dissolution during the McCarthy Era. I think this is likely due to the work of...

    I think it shows that DC lurches from one extreme to another. From Didio's anti-80s/90s stance in bringing back Hal/Barry/Batgirl and destroying marriages to the current extreme of trying to undo...

    Not really. Ystin had no connection to the GA era iteration of the SSoV. She was always connected to the Morrison version.
