    I don't hate the solar battery idea and actually have it play a part in my head cannon. I've just seen too many stories that lean too far into "just a human being with sun powers" making Superman...

    To me there just should never be a "before" and "after" to Clark's abilities.

    If we were doing a reboot as this thread asks, I'd get rid of the solar basis for the powers and return to the idea...

    Right. But as Clark he has connections that had no ties to Superman. These people are now on the radar, as well. And that hot dog vendor might be more interesting as a target when you realize...

    Sure Lois and Jimmy were always connected to Superman and logical targets, but now things only connected to Clark are public. The professor he had in Superman: Heroes, for example, had no connection...

    1) Lois Lane- Neutral as she can bring out Superman's better qualities or his worst depending on the writer.
    2) Lana Lang- Negative as she traps him in his boyhood and the Clark Kent side of his...

    I think I read somewhere that either Weisinger or Ellsworth had actually requested the writers to make Superman stories more like the comedic Lucy adventures. So Lois as Lucy Ricardo to Superman's...

    I don't respect Superman for his powers. I respect him for his use of the powers. For me the high level of his powers is just a way to remove societal pressure as a motivator. Superman could run...

    My take was that since Superman never referenced his powers ever being lesser during the 1940's that they never were. The stuff that seemed to stymie him in 1939 but not 1942 wasn't his powers...
  9. Anyone else ever buy a series they weren't reading?

    I somehow find myself putting together my monthly pull list and realizing I am pulling a title every month that I actually haven't read in months. Not one of those usual things where DC is late in...

    Why?

    Your average athlete runs a mile in 4 minutes and feels challenged to see if he can cut that down to 3:59. That athlete is motivated to train every day if necessary to shave that second off...

    He didn't become better through his own efforts. His level o power changed to keep him ahead of the pack.

    In 1938, leaping an 1/8 of a mile and outrunning a train let him be in a class by...

    This is DC so there will be no fresh start for the whole universe. Even if Generation Zero or Death Metal undoes many of the major events of the past decade (or decades), based on ever prior attempt...

    To me Superman was never about striving to be the best. It was about being the best. Not in a "Superman never gets beaten" or a "Superman outclasses every other member of the JLA" manner, but in the...

    I half agree. I think the supernatural stuff works a bit better than trying to come up with a purely time-based McGuffin. And I don't dislike Constantine or Charlie as characters. But the...

    In theory I agree with your crazy idea, but if I was making a film I'd want people to see it. If someone turned in a 100% perfect performance and some outside factor (like their public profile)...

    1) Conservative does not equal Trump or even necessarily being 100% Republican.

    I think this thread pretty much shows why a conservative hero would never fly on the CW. No one knows what a conservative is and any attempt at a definition is either a bunch of strawman arguments...

    But when did Dick Grayson become less iconic? Because DC has never made a move to put Dick back as Robin, but I'd assume most of what cemented Bruce and Batman as iconic would also apply to Dick...

    Actually, with time travel you have to wonder just how the Doctor's incarnations even work.

    Is there some linear Gallifrey where all of Tom Baker's visits happen before Colin Baker's trial...

    I've advocated for a while that if DC had phased out Bruce and replaced him with Dick in the Batsuit permanently it would have worked. But the consensus is that Bruce Wayne is Batman and always will...

    Even on Eath-2, Roy Thomas covered them by writing a story to let the street level JSAers remain close to their physical primes when they were over 60 years old.

    It's more than just that. Even if they don't reach a "retirement age" there is the question of a Batman whose physical feats are less impressive. A story where Nightwing or Batgirl is doing most of...

    It's not a bad thing up to a point. The two-fold problem is that publishers believe new readers aren't interested in a hero who is as old or older than their parents and (some) long-time readers...

    I could be misremembering but wasn't the 1940's Robin written younger like closer to 13 (as an average) where as by the early 60's he was written closer to say 16-17 (as an average)so that the idea...
