    Sadly, given all the work George Perez and Marv Wolfman put into it, I don't consider THE HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE to have any legitimacy. It came out after CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS had ended but...
  2. I don't know. It seems like the current vogue in...

    I don't know. It seems like the current vogue in writing is to delay the audience satisfaction as long as possible--on the theory that this anticipation will keep the audience interested for more...

    Read AN UNLIKELY PROPHET by Alvin Schwartz, if you haven't already. At least the first part where he talks about his time at D.C. Schwartz felt that he knew who these characters were and when they...
  4. Poll: I'm still enough of a Batman fan that I get my...

    I'm still enough of a Batman fan that I get my back up when people say Bruce is the worst. Because it isn't Bruce--it's the people that write the character. Just because a writer changes the...

    Yes. The New 52 gave me a good reason to stop buying all the D.C. titles because they all ended. If there had been a title that continued that I was reading, that might have kept me going back to the...

    How well off was Jack Kirby when he died? For all the work he did over his lifetime, it doesn't seem like he ever got rich from it. I don't know if this is just his bad luck or what. All the ventures...

    Hm, when I think about it, I realize that Denny O'Neil screwed up both these guys and their relationships with their young partners.

    Before that, I think Bruce was the better mentor. The first...
  8. To give this concept more consideration than it's...

    To give this concept more consideration than it's worth, I'd like to ask Peter David how this applies to folks that are gay, non-binary, pansexual. Do they become the reverse, too? How far can you...
  9. By "Ulysses" do you mean the version of Odysseus...

    By "Ulysses" do you mean the version of Odysseus that's presented in the Aeneid? Virgil had an agenda, since his book is about Aeneas, a Trojan, he has to make the Greeks look bad. So from that...
  10. Poll: Do you think the green hood was a colouring...

    Do you think the green hood was a colouring error? It seems likely that someone just got it wrong and nobody bothered to correct them because it wasn't considered that important back then.

    Funny...

    Well I mentioned it in one of my comments above. I said it was a spoof story. Maybe some people take it seriously, but I think of it as being outside of any real continuity. It's in the story about...

    I could understand TENET perfectly well and I only watched it once. But maybe that's because I knew something about it going in. It's not because it's toooo intelligent that I was indifferent toward...

    I don't know that Roy Thomas could do it now (for a mixture of reasons) but I don't know anyone else who has the particular set of skills to qualify them for the job.

    What made ALL-STAR SQUADRON...

    Nobody else has answered this question, so I will. Yes, he's related to John Landis. He's his son.

    This sounds like double speak. DEMON SLAYER (not available on streaming) falls almost as much as MORTAL KOMBAT--but that's okay because reasons. Yet MORTAL KOMBAT falling is bad because? Seems like...

    I remember one of my teachers reading THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE out loud to the class. Probably not my grade one teacher--not a very nice woman--who gave me nothing but X on my report...

    Colour weaknesses--yellow, red, green stuff--were probably used because the comic books were in colour and the publishers believed it was a good idea to exploit the colours they could offer in their...

    What is the lead in NIGHT COURT? I guess Harry is supposed to be, but really every character was a lead on that show. If it had just been all about the judge, I don't think it would have been as...

    Well really, there were only two types ever used with great regularity. Pink is just in a spoof story as far as I know. Anti-Kryptonite had to be invented because readers spotted an error in the...

    "Gold K" was the Kryptonite that gave me the most scares. With the green stuff, I always knew Superman and Supergirl were going to come back from it--even if they literally died from exposure. And...

    Are posters trying to break my soul? Seeing that break down of Kryptonites is hurting my geeky nerves. Gold K removes powers permanently. Red K is unpredictable and each isotope causes different...

    One of the things I loved about Earth-Two (and also the Legion in the 30th century) is it allowed the characters to exist in real time. People grew older, others were born, some died. Once they put...

    Huh? I was thinking maybe I didn't understand the topic, because Bud Collyer is the obvious answer. I don't need to be slapped in the face with a wet fish. Collyer was the voice of Superman on the...
