    You make a good argument. Characters like that are all too common with few actual goals rather than bullying and exploiting people. Sue would see this as a behavior to be fought, but simple mind...

    The 3 2 1 [blastoff] numbering of the issue demands extra points be awarded.

    Do any of us really have a good idea of how DC Comics is doing? Number of books is one metric, but sales and licensing as well as digital and trade publications have a lot to do with it. But...
  4. It certainly could. Let me suggest another idea,...

    It certainly could. Let me suggest another idea, though. Sue's usual connections are those where she is the voice of reason and the mother figure for a more immature partner. Now if we put sure...
  5. The frenemy and "top of the rogue's gallery" are...

    The frenemy and "top of the rogue's gallery" are totally different people. Sue should have both. As to a rogue she "fears", Psycho-Man is the character I come to first. His exploiting people by...
  6. Yes, it is. People are discussing the...

    Yes, it is. People are discussing the possibilities from Doomsday Clock and how they connect with a Justice League solicit. People are correctly pointing out that the preponderance of "I'm not...
  7. Yep, you want the JSA YOUR way. And you get a...

    Yep, you want the JSA YOUR way. And you get a LOT of mileage about bitching about delays. You've said that again and again and made a point in numerous threads about how you're not reading the...

    The Major generally has a firm handle on what he's talking about.
  9. You're free to read or not read DClock but if you...

    You're free to read or not read DClock but if you haven't read it, your comments on it aren't to be taken seriously.

    As for the appearances of characters and their relative importance to the...
  10. Characters, at least many successful ones, have a...

    Characters, at least many successful ones, have a few qualities which define them and which shouldn't change if that character is successful.

    Superman should be a nice guy, fighting for fairness,...

    We could certainly discuss the writing tools used by Johns in the Rebirth special. But he did have both Manhattan's mechanization and the HUAC hearings in the issue. And using that as well as the...

  13. In my opinion, DC's choice of methodology for the...

    In my opinion, DC's choice of methodology for the return of the JSA is more important than in the past. The timeframe between the JSA original years and today is far enough so that there really is...
  14. A better gender balance would be nice but we have...

    A better gender balance would be nice but we have a team from the straight white male 1940s. As a matter of fact the existance of Canary and Wonder Woman on the same team was progressive for the...

    Which is cool. But sometimes there can be a fine line between curiosity and complaint. If we look at the picture, though, the Sandman's original costume is the most problematic element of the...
  16. While I respect people's desire for a close...

    While I respect people's desire for a close relation with the actual Golden Age continuity, does the shifting of membership over the WW2 years make that big of a difference? The biggest point of...

    The number of variants seems excessive. I suspect Marvel wants to get something special for this issue.
  18. I'm not familiar with Black Cat, but Sue could...

    I'm not familiar with Black Cat, but Sue could definitely use a foil with questionable methods. Especially one who handles it with a bit of humor. Now she deals with Ben and Johnny like that, but...
  19. The solicit has the JSA of the past which doesn't...

    The solicit has the JSA of the past which doesn't set a particular year, so this not-unusual line-up isn't particularly noteworthy. Roy Thomas was the last writer to follow Golden Age continuity...

    I realize that costumes are a big part of character differentiation in comic books, but if Sue's doing espionage, wouldn't civilian clothing be optimal? People in SHIELD or superhero uniforms do...

    I've pretty much acclimated myself to 12-24 issue runs before a renumbering. If Marvel was publishing a Dr Strange 21, who among us would really believe there would never be another Dr Strange 1? No...

    How dare you bring reasonable analysis and unemotional commentary into a comic book forum. :)

    The first point I agree with. But doesn't every company in every industry throw spaghetti against a wall and see what sticks?

    There certainly is a plan and cohesion. But the plan is unknown to...

    The Malice observation makes sense, but Sue is different than Malice. I'm not sure that Malice's persona would favor a heroic character. As for the tougher Connery, Dalton, and Craig Bonds, I'd...
