  1. What if Leo Dorfman's Superman Red/Superman Blue had happened . . .

    In "The Amazing Story of Superman-Red and Superman-Blue," SUPERMAN 162 (July 1963)--by Leo Dorfman, Curt Swan and George Klein--the Man of Tomorrow splits in two, becoming Superman-Red and...

    What's that you're saying? STRANGE BREW is deliberate in its appearance of being stupid, yet actually being quite clever. There are all kinds of jokes within jokes, references to other things,...

    If Jenny was a gender bent Jimmy then who was that guy in BATMAN V SUPERMAN? But good ol' Jimmy Olsen is actually a better fit for a gender bent character (as he's been bent on many occasions in the...

    That was from PLOP! No. 5 (May-June 1974), when Clark's boss was Morgan Edge--so it made sense for him to be there at that time. Murph also included gags with the Flash and Batman for that issue.
  5. I didn't feel that way about the Jenny Olsen...

    I didn't feel that way about the Jenny Olsen scene. I felt like oh this character matters because they've given her some attention in the movie (but not much) and we're supposed to care about what...
  6. Well there's metaphor and there's literal truth....

    Well there's metaphor and there's literal truth. As a metaphor, Wonder Woman's story works because she's going against authority to go after who and what she loves. You don't need to be literally the...

    Frank Miller's story wasn't exactly breaking new ground. There's always been stories about Batman's possible future. And there was also the idea that Batman can't retire, because the task he's taken...
  8. Poll: Back in the day, when I was serious-minded about...

    Back in the day, when I was serious-minded about Batman and thought his costume needed to be more tactical, I thought why does it have to be yellow? The argument seems to always be over whether...
  9. How many movies after 9/11 have shown buildings...

    How many movies after 9/11 have shown buildings coming down, like they came down on that day? I'm sure my trauma doesn't compare to the trauma of people who were in New York that day and who lost...

    Wonder Woman has been more like a Judy Garland or a Bette Midler--someone who isn't necessarily gay herself, but someone with whom gay people identify. Gay men identify with Diana herself, so if she...

    I really hate Luc Besson and I avoid his movies like the plague, but I've seen enough of them to know what he's about. To me he's a very superficial director, even though he tries to make it seem...

    I think Reverse-Flash killing Nora Allen would be okay if it happened in the Flash's original timeline. Maybe the first thing Flash-fan Eobard Thawne does is go back in time to meet his hero, Barry...

    'MAZING MAN is a collage of different story types--some stories are just straight character drama. But when it comes to Denton working as a comic book writer for BC, the stuff he creates could...

    If Batman or even Superman is really what people aspire to be then we're screwed. I looked up to Muhammad Ali, I thought he was a hero, but I never aspired to be like him.

    I think what most...

    THE LITTLE HOURS (2017), directed by Jeff Baena, starring Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Kate Micucci. This is the kind of ribald comedy that I appreciate, but not many other people seem to...

    I was first taken with the weird things that Elongated Man could do to his body--to the point of being grotesque, like popping out his eyeballs--and when I showed these panels to my sister, she...

    I hear the Sea Devils will be in THE TRENCH--that's a deep dive into DC waters.

    Going by decades since I've been reading DC:

    The 1960s had a lot of upbeat comics, but if we can't include the humour comics (otherwise I'd say SUGAR AND SPIKE), then I'd name WORLD'S FINEST...

    When the three issue THE UNTOLD LEGEND OF THE BATMAN came out in 1980, the flashbacks of Bruce's early career showed him already having the yellow oval. Editor Paul Levitz explained that he thought...

    Just giving that list a quick glance, I see they don't have "The Perils of Poor Lois," SUPERMAN 24 (September-October 1943). I'd say that story fits the imaginary story criteria quite well. It does...

    The extended cut of BVS might have explained what was going on in more detail--but I actually understood all that when I saw the theatrical cut, so the extra scenes weren't really necessary for me....

    Isn't this a bit of navel-gazing. Here we are on a forum dedicated to comic books, a bunch of people who buy comic books, talking about the relevance of comic books. It's relevant to us.

    Well, I'm talking about the trailers, since I'm trying to understand what didn't pull people into the movie. I would have thought Batman, Superman--that's the pull so people must have seen something...

    The character who I thought didn't need to hide his true identity was Doll Man. In fact, Doctor Roberts and Martha clearly know that Darrel Dane is the Doll Man, because they were there when it all...

    Even with the negative word of mouth, I'd expect BVS to have done better, just because it has these big name heroes. Batman alone should have been enough of a draw.

    I never watched the trailers...
