    He's been at this long enough I don't see him being in it just for the money. Back in the days of Jinxworld him and folks like Ron Marz and Gail Simone would go toe to toe about the merits of Joe...

    Always glad to see more of the Multiverse! Earth-11 seems like one of the most revisited.

    Something to note about Bomshell Batwoman being present, this is the first time the Bombshell earth has been shown as part of the 52. I'm not complaining- I'm glad it's part of it.

    Now, full disclosure. I prefer the Silver Age characteriztion and if I were in charge of DC, Arthur would be the guy who stitll had that straightlaced, sincere persona. That ship sailed in '85...

    Black Canary was the Post-Crisis replacement for Wonder Woman, since Legends screwed up her origin by only after her showing up in Man's World in then-current continuity.

    Personally, I don't mind...

    That was Giffen and Dematties' joke with Mistress Mary. This isn't the one from Final Crisis.

    This was a fun issue! Good concepts, fun character moments and nice grungy art.

    I'm very conflicted about these. I really, really wish they would make stuff that's non-Batman in origin. At the same time, though, they *aren't* just remaking the same stuff we've had from other...

    Superman, as originally created by Siegal & Schuster, is a sci-fi update of the Moses legend likely combined with the Golem of Prague legend. The Last Son of a Dying Planet sent off to a remote...

    Yup, Morrison shows up in Ostrander's Suicide Squad a few years later, in addition to potentially being one of the Seven Tailors of Slaughter Swamp in Seven Soldiers. Fans interpreted those as the...

    X-Force was the edgy series. X-Force varied quite a bit, but was often comedic in David's well received run. Like, one of the villains was a guy with a giant fan on his head called #1 Fan. it's...

    I don't think it satirizes superhero tropes, no. It has fun with them and plays around, but it's purpose isn't to say the superhero genre is dumb or anything. To bring it back to comics, it's akin to...

    No, I wouldn't say that qualifies GotG as a parody. A parody is, by definition, a satire of a work that criticizes it through broad humor. GotG has actual character development, stakes, plot and...

    If you watched Guardians of the Galaxy and thought they were parodies, I'm not sure what to say. They were certainly comedic in parts but there is plenty of pathos in there too. Especially in Vol.2....

    Polka Dot Man, assuming he made his own tech, was capable of making hover discs large enough to support human weightas well as combat ready gimmick dots, so he's not as goofy. I can see him having...

    He means the original Earth-2 from the '60s to the '80s, where the JSA lived. Earth-1 was the main variation where the JLA lived. These were combined after 1985's Crisis on Infinite Earths, then...

    Your reading of the Metaverse seems mostly correct, though it seems like Earth-1, etc., are the actual timelines. The Metaverse is created anew and the old just splits off. It's like if you have a...

    One of the first posts in this thread is someone calling the series fantastic, which you wouldn't get without a good story. Ultimately, stories are in the eye of the beholder and people come to...

    If it's a discussion you're after, you'll want to explain your issues in more than just 'don't like 'em.'.

    Considering the sort of idolization Snyder has for Morrison, I'm confident that'll come into play. Anyone who thinks this'll either last or be 'serious grimdark' is selling it short.

    Note that the Tree-Man is empty and hollowed out, similar to the etymology of "Hulk" that Ewing has referenced numerous times and turned into a key plot point. In addition, some believe Tree-Man is a...

    Ah, ok. I've never actually gotten around to reading the comics due to money reasons, but that makes sense.

    I'm guessing that ends up being the difference between the two Earths in the Injustice series. I wouldn't be surprised if they retcon them being a split timeline.

    If anyone's curious, the elderly...

    This was a fun issue. I really like Taylor's DC work and this is no exception.
