    Rapidly gaining and losing his powers based on whether or not he was exposed to a yellow sun caused Superboy-Prime to be chemically unstable. Alexander Luthor Jr may have exacerbated this by giving...

    Actually what is more hilarious was that after the lawsuit was when we started getting the DC Families (Supergirl, Batwoman, Bat-Girl, Wonder Tot, Wonder Girl …( so after suing Fawcett for stealing...

    I know they met during the New Krypton Saga but Chris was an adult there.

    Can't recall if they met during that weird between panels period in Last Son or if Conner was dead at that point. I'm...

    This.

    I never want to see Dick Grayson moved so far from the Batverse orbit that we get another Knightfall situation where Batman has to call in back-up and Grayson is an afterthought behind...

    I'm kind of on the fence.

    Given a choice I prefer a powerful Superman with brains over a near omnipotent one. Lifting buildings and the like don't bother me, but Superman escaping black holes,...

    I don't care for varied powers amongst Kryptonians. I don't mind there being the occasional meta-Kryptonian who has powers not tied to their being Kryptonian (like a Kryptonian with psionics), but...

    I prefer the original comics version. Cat as a nice person with a bit of a past. Not the man-hungry version on Lois & Clark, but someone whose road to the Planet may have been connected to her sex...

    Got to agree. I've bypassed even starting a lot of shows simply because I don't want to get into some mystery that will never be resolved.

    I take it collections like Superman From the 30's to the 70's (80's) or The Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told aren't what you are looking for. :cool:

    My only problem with setting it in the 1940's is the way so many writers try to put 2019 values in historic people.

    One of my favorite things in Roy Thomas' All-Star Squadron was his use of...

    I wasn't asking for the exact same cast (except with different names) as Clark had in school. I was asking to see him have friendships develop (which means multiple story arc uses) outside of Kathy...

    Actually Lana as the secret keeper wasn't really her role until recently. I was bothered more by Lana being made an also ran (the showrunners had Lois as endgame from day 1) . And she always had a...

    It also helps if the romance actually has some role in the story other than drama.

    Lois & Clark was largely if not entirely about both characters. The episodes focused on their work lives as...

    I blame Moonlighting. That show was falling apart behind the scenes by the time they got the two main characters together, but somehow Hollywood decided the lesson was "actually moving the...

    I think if Earth 2 even with all the other changes hadn't been set in a doomed universe it might have had a different sales fate. Maybe following whatever plan James Robinson had at the beginning...

    I'd have preferred a series that followed Jon's life from a lot younger and showed him developing friends besides Damian and Kathy. But somehow we missed out on his life prior to ten years old.

    I knew about the Dick Grayson/Talon retcon where he was intended to serve the Court instead of being Robin/Nightwing, but I incorrectly assumed the Gotham bit where the Court had a hand in the...

    I was thinking more of retcons that added new information rather than replacement origins. So the Crisis removing Wonder Woman from Donna's origin wasn't what I had in mind. All the attempts to...

    Origin Retcons

    I was thinking about how somewhat simple straightforward origins morph into these complex things.

    Batman's parents were originally just two people in the wrong place at the wrong time. Then we...

    Captain Nazi on Earth-S or in the Golden Age was a true threat. As part of the blended DCU he loses something when put in the same company as Baron Blitzkrieg as the two fill the same role of the...

    "Sneaking suspicion". To me her favored status couldn't be more obvious if it was accompanied by a flashing neon sign when she is on screen. For all the use of the Superman symbol- I think the...

    To be fair, while I would rather they go after Jor-El myself, if Seg decides to deal with Zod first it makes sense. As it stands now Seg and Nyssa have no idea where Brainiac's ship went and Zod is...
