    I'm a huge fan of the Spectre and would love to see him used frequently...



    Maybe so. I certainly have no objections to that.

    But I think the epilogue ARROW ep will deal with wherever...

    Somewhat paradoxically, the era during which Bruce was most frequently pushing his allies away was also the one where the Bat-Family underwent its most rapid expansion.

    Oh, definitely, "Quiver" too! I was almost kind of surprised Kevin Smith didn't mention that on the Aftermath special, but then, I think he's much more excited to be there as a fan than to discuss...

    Generally, my preference would be for a Bruce Wayne in the Bronze Age mold, who's not only capable of healthy relationships but even makes wisecracks.

    That said, I don't find Rucka's Bruce Wayne...

    Oliver as the Spectre is a pretty cool twist. Wonder if that's inspired by Hal Jordan's time in the role?

    Interesting. I think Bruce is a heroic, inherently decent human being even in his more obsessive incarnations (in the mainstream books, I mean, not alternate realities). I've never seen him as being...

    Just to be clear, I wasn't arguing that cycles are a bad thing, or that King's run can only be judged by whether he makes lasting changes to Batman's characterization.

    I'd say the Batman line has...

    I think that's the intention, to explore the ways in which even perceived invulnerable badasses are fragile human beings.

    Pretty much, yes. Every serialized protagonist falls in and out of certain cycles, but I think the influence and impact of Born Again and Knightfall is more significant than other comparable stories,...

    Very true.

    I also think that, for a variety of reasons, the 80s characterization of major characters tends to stick in a way that others don't. When it comes to escaping the potentially...

    I feel like Knightfall is the Batman franchise's "Born Again"--and that's not intended as a criticism, just an observation. We've gotten a lot of great comics driven by that model.



    It's a good...

    To a certain extent, sure, it's corporate superhero comics--but so were the various Silver and Bronze Age takes on Batman. There's no logical reason why a less obsessive Batman couldn't take hold...

    I'm baffled by Marvel having not collected the DeMatteis/Buscema SSM run in its entirety.

    Question that's slightly off topic, but I think it's relevant:

    I feel like post-Knightfall, nearly every major Batman writer has a story in mind where they break Bruce (in different ways, mind...

    I've always loved GHOSTBUSTERS II and never understood the hate.

    Tonally, the transition from the first to second film is a lot like comparing Lee/Ditko's Spider-Man to Lee/Romita's. You trade...

    Most likely a reference to SUPERMAN #75, the issue where he died.

    With regard to 2046's Oliver, I feel like they're setting up something there and I expect him to reappear before Crisis is over.

    He really is perfect as Monitor. Can't wait to hear his interpretation of Anti-Monitor!

    Bloodwork was one of the strongest FLASH villains IMO. The actor did a great job, especially in those last two episodes.

    Oliver tells Diggle to make sure the kids make it back to 2040, so best guess is the Canaries do that and then get stuck there.

    Though the 2040 future we've seen will be an alternate one if...

    I haven't watched Supergirl in quite some time, either, and I've never seen an episode with Braniac 5, but I thought he did great. Conveyed that sense of awkwardness I'd expect from a higher alien...

    Great episode. Started off strong and didn't let up.

    A minor complaint: since Oliver has said his goodbyes quite a few times already, I think his last line should have been, "Then it's not time."...

    It's well thought out. As for the 'interesting' part, I mostly meant that I'd never really heard Obi-Wan faulted for not reporting his suspicions about Anakin and Padme to the Council. I tend to see...

    That's an interesting take. I've always felt like Obi-Wan was the only one holding Anakin back from the Dark Side for as long as he did, and that Palpatine specifically manipulated events to keep...

    I want to say the underground railroad ties were mentioned a few time in the 90s. It makes sense the Waynes have an extensive history in Gotham and Wayne Manor has always seemed like an old money...
