    Thank you both for your posts. I suppose those explanations make sense. I've reading through the Satellite and JLI eras of the JL recently. I can identify with Ralph missing Barry and making the best...

    Johns' take on TT for the 2003 revamp was also a success. The first 50 issues (collected in a massive omnibus) are some of the best Titans material out there. After Johns left Titans, the book...

    Most likely a revamp. Same way how DCAU Brainiac was a combination of classic Brainiac and the Eradicator. Comic Volcana has only two appearances. While TAS version appeared several times on Superman...

    FatWS/Falcon and the Winter Soldier?

    Nightwing/Chris Kent/Lor-Zod used his Phantom Zone powers to absorb his father back into the PZ, in Superman's place. As Supes was prepared to make the...

    That's easy. Volcana made her debut in the comics in 1996. Action Comics vol 1 #725 1996. Superman TAS Volcana debuted in 1998. In the comics, Volcana is from Apokolis and only breathes fire. Instead...

    Thanks. So they never followed up with it. What a shame. I was curious what became of New 52 Kandor and all the other bottle worlds.

    Question:

    Does anyone know what happened to New 52 Brainiac’s colony ship from Morrison’s Action Comics run? Supes took it over at the end of the arc and used it as his satellite/fortress. Later...

    Or, it's like I said. A bunch of people who didn't have better ideas, all decided to tell a variant of the same story. The writers wouldn't know which WW origin the movie was going to use. Which was...

    I surmise it fit the narrative for the adventures with the gods story Azz was doing for his 36 issue run. The daughter of Zeus angle was Cassandra Sandsmark's pre-Flashpoint explanation for her...

    I wasn't really referring to Rucka or Morrison. Their books got sequels. It's more the obnoxious nature of releasing 4 in one year.


    I'll remove Secret Identity. I don't see any difference...

    That still leaves Birthright through Man of Tomorrow. That's 11 origins in less than 20 years. Byrne's MOS is anchor to show how obsessed and hurting for ideas DC is.

    I list Byrne's run to help demonstrate how super-saturated the last 15 to 20 years has been with day one origin stories. I can make a similar list of how many times Superman fights and kills...

    Continuity should matter, but WB/DC have been playing fast and loose with Supes and his line for years. Count the day one origins for Superman and then count how many of them got day twos.

    There...

    Not holding my breath on that one. With all the titles that have been cancelled or stuck in development hell. I'll believe it when I see it.

    AT&T did that. Not WB. AT&T yanked WB's chain...

    I stated in the OP I was looking for the greatest "runs" that carry the Justice League name. Not individual stories. Kingdom Come and the New Frontier for example are great JL tales. And I have...

    Because it's universally understood that the Legion, Teen Titans and Justice Society are lost causes. There hasn't been a single TT run since Wolfman/Perez that hasn't tried to emulate the that...

    1. Yes. The White Martian attack in Morrison's JLA is called "New World Order". The JL animated series adapted it in their premiere episodes, "Secret Origin".

    2. When people think of Kingdom Come,...

    Thanks, mate. I had to look the character up, he's so minor and obscure. That would've never worked for a twist or storytelling going forward.


    As much as I hate character assassination and...

    That's a bit of an odd and speculative question, but I'll humor you.

    Days of Future Past, Phoenix/Dark Phoenix Saga, The Cure, Wolverine in Japan, Age of Apocalypse.

    Does anyone remember the character they planned on using for Checkmate and Project OMAC portion in the lead up to Infinite Crisis?

    A reboot wouldn't accomplish anything. Why? Because WB does not want to spend money to make these films happen. Look at how many films have been announced and been delayed or cancelled. The execs at...

    It feels like that. I keep asking for that fifth great JL run, and no one has provided me an answer. At this point, I think I'm just going to have to list Johns' JSA run from 1999-2008 as the 5th...

    I didn’t say that the JL had no notable stories. I brought attention to the JL existing for 61 years and the agreed on top 4 runs and adaptions. Satellite Era, JLI, 90s JLA Morrison/Waid/Kelley and...

    @Bold
    Mate, that is the funniest and saddest thing I've read about Snyder's JL run. That makes his run sound like an absolute waste. This after the reported snoozefest that was Hitch's run.
