    Gorgeous but Stupid Film.

    The Untouchables (1987). The costumes were elegant. The sets were delightful. The cinematography was beautiful. The score was luscious. The acting was...fine.

    Leaving history aside for a moment,...

    Subjective assessment, but tough to argue.

    Query: had anybody else ever used MI's gimmick of incorporating scenes from each episode de jour into the opening? That was extra-double cool. If for no...

    I'd think we weren't talking about The Amazons anymore, since The Amazons are artifacts of Greek Mythology. If that's the case, we're really talking about something more akin to Marvel's Inhumans...

    I have enjoyed the way Bendis has written Kal-el/Clark (bit of a shock to me actually). I have hated The Knockoff-Doomsday-With-The Bad-Teeth he inflicted upon us.

    Rage, no. He was booted for being underage and sent to the New Warriors. Firestar and Justice, on the other hand, left the NWs to join the Avengers. They were probationary at first.[/QUOTE]

    The real answer here, of course, is branding. When the movies began to hit, Marvel wanted to attach the name Avengers to as many properties as they could.

    I'm not 100% sure that it qualifies, but Miller's "Batman: Year One." The idea that Wayne had something of a strategy-driven mission to what he was doing just fits better than just randomly bashing...

    Firefox works well enough to keep me happy. Aside from the aforementioned privacy issues, I prefer to touch the mouse as little as necessary, and Chrome also doesn't really support ctrl+ and alt+...

    Weren't both Lee and Kirby dead by the time Captain Marvel came out?

    Forbes had an interesting reflection on the film's anniversary, claiming that Batman, rather than Star Wars put the Cinema industry on the path to the place it's currently in.

    Which "They" are you discussing? WB? DC? AT&T? To this point, all of those have been run as relatively self-contained units.

    The DC staff have next to zip control over what goes into the cinematic...

    A little boy has some interesting potential. He could be written with a real identity struggle if he's superhuman, but never gets to a point where mama can't take him across her knee. It also has a...

    I thought that I might get away with mixing and matching series. My original thought was to use Goliath Foster, but aside from being dead, his one series never got that far. That being the case, I'd...

    I'd submit that -for the characters they film - Marvel actually has more control over their characters, they just don't control the whole library. While DC has access to its entire library, their...
