    It is. Totally agreed.

    It confuses me too. I mean, I think I can see the business sense of doing 5G successors. DC's trying to find new audiences and reach people they typically haven't reached...

    You're not wrong. Of course, we know like, three things about what'll happen, so I don't feel super great about the odds of this being what it *could* be as opposed to what it's *likely* to be. But...

    Like I've said, some recontextualizing is fine. Necessary, actually, to get all the various continuities fused together. But there's a difference, I think, between some necessary adjustments and...

    DC doesn't take blind pitches.

    He'd have to pitch to Image or one of the other indies (except Dark Horse, who also don't take blind pitches) and work his way up to get DC's notice.

    And then...

    They aren't. Which means Marvel would've tried harder than DC did. And DC managed to integrate their other IP's pretty well (for the most part).

    Ah, well no argument there!



    I'm not saying they were worthless, just that they didn't have the juice that today's League has. And they didn't.

    Taking orders, maybe not. Doing what he's asked, or listening to a good plan and being wise enough to roll with it?

    Ted Grant isn't a dude who does what he's told either, but he knows that when...

    I dunno, Pak's issues of Truth where Clark goes up against the cops was pretty legit.

    He probably only got to do that because Morrison did it first, but Pak definitely has the chops for it.

    I'm not thrilled by it, and I honestly don't know what it adds to her narrative. Being first certainly hasn't helped Clark in recent years. It feels a little too much like chasing synergy, maybe a...

    Couple things.

    Don't think of Doomsday as a character. He's not. Doomsday is a plot device. More like a natural disaster than anything. You can't expect a story where it has agency, it's how the...

    Damn straight.

    I'll take long hair (not a mullet, but long hair) over the crap haircuts Dick's had in recent years.

    Also, that Dan Mora cover is legit. Why isn't this guy doing more interiors?...

    Who says Uncle Sam has to be *the* elder statesman? He's not a JSA staple and that'll hold him back with traditionalist fans, but he'd be a natural fit and I believe a lot of writers wouldn't be able...

    These companies can't juggle all the IP's they actually own man. No, Marvel would've put their own Z-listers on ice to make room for the more profitable DC properties.
