    Has to be All-Star Squadron. You can just feel the love Roy has for taking existing comics and history trivia as building blocks for his stories. And you can see how the loss of that undercut a lot...

    I prefer the Pre-Crisis take where he was Clark's bossover the obvious "big business bogeyman" or "secret head of Intergang".

    The Pre-Crisis take gave us a well rounded character that could be...

    Not knowing a thing about the characters and not really caring to learn has pretty much been the WB formula.
  4. Except that sounds more like the Roy Thomas'...

    Except that sounds more like the Roy Thomas' explanation for the longevity of the JSA members or the weird John Byrne explanation in She Hulk about character's aging being tied to whether they were...
  5. If anyone ever read Roy Thomas' Anthem I'd work...

    If anyone ever read Roy Thomas' Anthem I'd work one of his concepts from there in. We'd pick up just prior to where Young All Stars occurred on the original Earth-Two (The Trinity plus Robin, Speedy...

    The problem with the Hawks is that the situation is somewhere between rare and unique. It's not fair to judge their relationship based on things that don't apply- like only having only three score...

    I can see what the writer was going for but it just fell flat for me.

    The inspirational story felt like something made up (yeah, i know it's all made up). Watters was just a name and the events...

    The problem with a mantle is that it is always comparing itself to itself.

    Every Robin is judged based on the best qualities of all the other Robins. Jason was defined as either a "Grayson...

    I went with five of the classic seven:
    Barry, Hal, Diana, Arthur and Clark.

    I could be persuaded to swap out J'onn for Clark. Just couldn't see them both and I'm a Superman fan.

    Picked...

    see below- accidental double post and the second one is better worded.

    The Kents are the original anti-vaxxers and Clark has kept up with that stance.

    Or, you know, the whole faked records thing

    I think I read somewhere that when the smallpox vaccine was something...

    I think it would only be a physics lesson if the writer kept trying to explain stuff and/or bringing up what couldn't be done. It could just as easily be a book where the creative team works out the...

    1) Luthor
    2) If you are counting Cyborg, then I'm going with Commander Steel as my #2

    There was a line in a Pre-Crisis story where Jonathan Kent came back from the grave and revealed the Superman was Clark to Lois in order to get his son to move forward in that relationship. Lois...

    Hitler isn't taken out for being a dictator. He's taken out for invading Poland. Superman might intervene earlier than 1939 but he's not going there in 1933 and my scenario is that he basically...

    it would if in 1939 Superman made it clear that Hitler was just the opening round. If Fuhrer 2.0 kept up the same tricks, then he suffers the same fate. And then Fuhrer 3.0 and so on until we get...

    So who are we throwing under the bus to get them that page time, because unless we increase the page count exponentially someone has to get the short end of the stick.

    Clark is more "grounded in reality" if that makes sense for these characters. Superman is an extraordinary being who was raised in an ordinary environment. Regardless of whether "Clark" is the real...

    There was an obvious hierarchy on the show. Batman was at the very top. John Stewart and Hawkgirl were next. And Diana was pretty much the bottom.

    It makes sense as John and Shayera were pretty...

    Or they could have rebooted her the same way they rebooted Superman- or that they rebooted her in Rebirth. Perez gets a mini like Man of Steel set in the past with her series then picking up in the...

    I'm kind of torn. I liked the Silver/Bronze Age where Superman could visit several alien worlds in a day and still be back to make his 6pm news broadcast. That type of thing is just second nature to...

    I can still recall Superman dressed up in a giant bird costume terrorizing his neighbor's pet bird in a story.

    Clark is pet-sitting the poor thing and the bird at one point chirps "Clark Kent is...

    To me, Krypton was only intended as a McGuffin. You needed a place for this superhuman person to come from and Siegel and Shuster went with another planet after considering the future. It wasn't...
