    Yup. It was supposed to be Wookiees. The legend is, and I want to say Lucas himself has confirmed it at some point but I can't recall anymore, was that being that he had become a dad by this time,...

    When the story first broke my first instinct was to take up for Tanrantino on the grounds that it was clearly a satirical take. What he responded with though was pretty tone-deaf, as he did not...

    The Ric thing astounds me for being greenlit. All this for a name? If you wanted to try and get a different nickname to catch on other than Dick, just have him start going by that name of his own...

    Fair point there. I'd go even further and say that, while this is a disappointing fact in its own right, a lack of hype for comics period is a thing these days, let alone a Superman direction. This...

    Yeah, we just simply disagree at a base level. I don't think any of that is true, not for Lana. There's no evidence on the page that the connection began because of strength or physical ability on...

    Again though, this does not stand up to scrutiny of Lana in issue #1. She does not throw herself at Clark. They share a mutual interest from afar, they both find more common ground when they're...

    This is fine and not fine. Fine in the sense I was disappointed with the run. Not fine because its very often now that writers I think going in will do a good job leave me disappointed. Let's hope...

    WW was cool in DKIII, but then again so was Superman after the debacle of the first two chapters and Azz had a lot to do with that one. But on the other hand I see more similarities with this...

    I would disagree there's nothing built up with Lana in issue #1. It was fast, but it was there, and it was not about physical strength. Lana was not interested in Clark just because he was big and...

    Gah, I meant to mention the heat vision actually and forgot. That was really cool. I especially liked comparing it to the red sun. Come to think of it, has Superman's heat vision ever been...

    That's why I said its a shared sentiment. He's a prize to her, and then he comes back and fights for her hand, basically.

    And that 2000 year old myth is part of the inspiration for the material...

    I haven't read Miller's other works in regards to the Islamophobia. I concede that to those who have.

    But the incest and prize arguments are reaches. We're talking about a society that is a mix...

    Some thoughts:

    Clark's relationship with the his superior was interesting. I liked how close he came to really knowing what Clark was, and was cool with it. Also that he knew of at least some...

    No really. Now, people whose opinions I trust and those whose tastes tend to align with mine praise the story, so I take that to heart. It probably is well-crafted. But I just was never cared much...

    So Alfred is going to be gone for a while until a chalky-skinned dude calling himself The Outsider shows up.

    Ha.

    Same. I really thought in the beginning that steps were being made to put that focus on the man. Not on elements of his mythos taken for others, but Superman himself. Now I don't know what to...

    Would "like" Myskin's posts a thousand times if such a feature was available. Great stuff on the over-romanticizing about the Rebirth era for Superman.

    No one can really answer that 100%, but at least in regards to sales, it wasn't doing anything spectacular beyond the norm for Superman. It burst out of the gate as a new initiative as those were...

    Yup. All of Superman's legacy with the Legion was just given to Jon.

    In many ways I consider this a worse slap in the face than just outright removing it in 86.
