  1. Was 1986 the most important year for superhero comics since 1938?

    Yes, I fell for the clickbait, but the author of this post on Nerdist makes a good point. A lot of seismic shifts hit all comics in 1986. Outside of the superhero explosion spanning 1939-40, has...

    Hate that BL missed out, but I'd be good with a League consisting of the leading 8 in the poll (as of this writing):
    Wonder Woman
    Superman
    Aquaman
    Batman
    Martian Manhunter
    Black Canary

    Um. The Captains Marvel have some daylight between them. As do the Ms. Marvels. The Power Men, etc.

    O'Neal & Adams would disagree. They didn't do anything to Batman Crisis didn't do to Superman, they just ignored what they found problematic instead of burning everything to the ground before hitting...

    "Ever" tends to be a bit less final a word in some places than everywhere else. At the moment, the internet's razor megaphone has shown remarkable power, but unless there's film, I won't call it. We...

    I get ya, and I agree. Sam should always have been his own thing. Not anybody's legacy or whatever, and that goes for both comics and MCU.

    That ship, unfortunately, has sailed. In both media.

    I liked it. I didn't realize that Whedon was attached until the end. I'll stay with it anyway.

    There are some dudes that got the Super Juice too, but yes, it does focus on a group of women, on...

    Rogers pretty much explicitly said that in CATFA. The exact quote escapes me, but in the scene just before going after Bucky, he told Carter that for the longest time he'd dreamed of serving his...

    DC should never have abandoned it's multiverse, but it did. Now it would be like trying to move back into a house you burned to the ground.

    Nothing is impossible, but DC has not demonstrated the...

    Heinlein's name came up already, but I didn't see Friday on anybody's list, and it should be. Good, ripping adventure yarn that includes espionage, military action and space travel all in one story....

    Some would say Inferno owns that title. I doubt we'll ever truly know.

    Okay. Got it. You don't like it. Doesn't align with your values. Isn't the way you would have written it. Those that enjoy it are deficient.

    Go in peace and watch something else.

    Bizzaro. He gets played as Dumb Superman, or Zombie Superman, or Rampaging Superman.

    Too rarely does he get his due as Imperfect Superman. All of Kal-el's best intentions, but with a flawed mind...

    Furthermore, it gave an in-story event to ground Sam's empathy for Karli's motives in genuine understanding, rather than simply a cynical attempt at manipulation, as he knows what it's like to be...

    I was a fan of almost all of Larry Niven's Known Space work. His characterization is not the strongest, and his characters are usually a bit quirky, but the plots are both fast and rich, and his...

    Yeah, when it comes to combat abilities, Spider-Man is probably one of the best, and most thoroughly thought-out protagonists in comics. It's been pretty impressive that they've been as consistent...

    There may be some room to quibble about levels, but yeah, Buck, all the (late) other Winter Soldiers, and the Flag Smashers are all SSS'd. We started seeing Buck go more-than-human in CAWS, when he...

    One thing I've got to say for F+WS and WandaVision: they both served the "MCU is too jokey" crowd an enormous spoonful of STFU.

    IMO, she doesn't need a separate continuity as much as she needs a corner of her own. Give her a hiatus from all teams and - most especially - Constantine, then build out a supporting cast for her in...
