    That's it. I had forgot those details, so thanks for reminding me.

    I like the original LAW & ORDER because the main characters don't get in the way of the episode's plot. In fact, the few times when we see Lenny struggling with his gambling addiction or Jack being...

    The femme fatales would just enable Bruce's bad behaviour. What he needs is to find his own self-worth and make a life for himself as a fully rounded individual. But comic book fans want him to be...

    That doesn't pass the smell test. I can believe that Wolfman might have said something like that--comic book professionals say a lot of things that I take with a grain of salt--they are pestered with...

    I think it would be cool if Matt Ryan played Constantine as though he was from a different Earth than the Arrowverse version. So there would be subtle differences between the two iterations of the...

    On the matter of white gloves, why does Bugs Bunny have yellow gloves in the promotion I see for HBO Max Looney Tunes? It seems to be a Mandela Effect a la Berenstein/Berenstain Bears. I remember...

    I think it was a general opinion that the old D.C. was boring and the new D.C. was better.

    Look at this way. In the early 1980s, the comics weren't selling as well as they had, and in the shops,...

    Copyright restrictions limit how many people may be shown a movie. I vaguely recall a recent case where a charity was charged a bundle for showing a movie at a gathering of parents and children--they...

    Two things about the Superman story that I never or rarely see, yet seem to be very important to the character are 1) Clark Kent is a talented writer of reportage and 2) Superman has encountered so...

    I was a full grown adult when STAR WARS came out in 1977. And I fell asleep the first time I saw it in the theatre. I did see it again and I bought the comics from Marvel. I even went to see CORVETTE...

    TONIGHT was the creation of Steve Allen, circa 1954, and he established the format of the talk show we know today. Allen became so busy that Ernie Kovacs was given the Monday and Tuesday night slots...

    Look at Gil Kane's body of work and you'll see that he's very good at hands. He uses hands to express a lot of what's going on in a scene. The ring has to contrast with the hand, for it to be...

    Since it hid the secret elevator, it was probably not a real tree. The "decorative foliage" was probably fake. But it looks like the kind of architectural concepts that were popular in the 1970s....

    I know that this idea that Cavill would do Hulk-like cameos in D.C. movies already went through the news cycle a couple years ago. I wonder if the news is just being run by a robot that sends out...

    I'd assume they are talking to him about doing reshoots and looping for the Snyder Cut. But I don't know how that works. For the theatrical cut that would all be in his contract for the movie--so...

    It seems to me that, unlike the other members of the Justice Society, the similarity between Earth-One and Earth-Two Superman and Batman was important for the writers at the time. Because this...

    It's a D.C. brand and I guess that stops anyone else from using it in that way. But I'm all for people having the right to use words however they want. So if you want to call a Marvel story an...

    She's an outcast because she's Chinese-American. People in that town are racist. They choose to hate her and make fun of her because of her appearance and her name. She could be the most brilliant...

    I think "the J.S.A. failed" perfectly fits the story that Levitz and Staton told where H.U.A.C. (or whatever) demanded they remove their masks and instead they disappeared. They had been trying to...

    According to Paul Levitz, when he was writing the Justice Society of America in ALL-STAR COMICS (and then ADVENTURE COMICS), Earth-Two was a better place than our Earth. They had got rid of apartheid...
