    This whole show could be "How the Doom Patrol became the Doom Patrol." It's less about the destination than the journey.

    This has me wondering it anyone ever did a what if story where the shoe was on the other foot. Dick Grayson sees his parents killed before his eyes and becomes a Boy Wonder Detective to solve the...

    If you wanted to concoct a reason, you could say that the lead filters out yellow sun radiation and over time Superman's powers decrease if he wears the lead suit for an extended period.

    The whole...

    "Henry Cavill Claimed To Be In The Flash" is...

    "Henry Cavill Claimed To Be In The Flash" is ambiguous. It's an odd construction, as it could be taken to mean that, at one time, Henry Cavill claimed to be in THE FLASH.

    LANCELOT LINK, SECRET CHIMP (1970). A Saturday morning live action show, starring chimpanzees with a heavy GET SMART! influence. Lancelot Link and his fellow agents worked for A.P.E. While the...

    I've been doing meditating lately and this "be in the moment" thing is what I have a problem with. Seems to me if I try to be in the moment it's like watching cars go past--each moment goes by and is...

    I don't know how many more words I have to attach to each post to cover myself. I thought I had said enough in my previous post to avoid this kind of reprimand that I foresaw coming. I may have to...

    People always say you should live in the moment, but how is that possible? Our brains are constantly going through a process of remembering and predicting to construct our perception of time....

    Funnily enough, if you added the votes for NEW FUN [COMICS] and MORE FUN COMICS, that title would have the most votes. And comically, if you added NEW COMICS and NEW ADVENTURE COMICS and ADVENTURE...

    I only voted for NEW FUN (as explained above), but if I had voted for others, I'd put them in this historical order:


    NEW FUN (first new material comic)
    NEW COMICS (a note to follow FUN--and...

    Well, there's a certain aesthetic, like in the Burton Batman movies and in the animated series, which is akin to steam punk--in which modern settings are mashed-up with artifacts of the past. But I...

    The one thing that's very clear to me is that the show is (intentionally) not very clear about when the original J.S.A. existed. If all these clues in the show were supposed to inform us on the...

    Not in the same location but, the first time he was killed, he was on board a ship and dumped in the ocean--so, each time he returns, it's in the nearest body of water relative to where he was last...

    I know I'm not the only one who remembers THE INVADERS (1967). A Quinn Martin production--his shows always had a distinctive format. This was so popular, it's odd it only went one season.

    There...

    Like I said on the Wonder Woman forum, it's a function of the market. Maybe something we don't want to admit--if we are white males who buy super-hero comics. Although I'm too poor to consider myself...

    I can never remember if it was the 1940s Hawkman that had Ninth Metal and the 1960s Hawkman that had Nth Metal, or if it was the other way around. It seems to me while an anti-gravity metal is...

    For you, sure. But my counting is different from yours. I wasn't trying to make a legal argument that Marvel couldn't use them. I was just saying that Marvel will use any and every name they can get...

    It's too bad they so botched the Mother Boxes. As designed by Jack Kirby in 1970, a Mother Box was a handy device with thousands of uses, that you held in your hand--and sometimes held up to your...

    Funnily enough, although Harry Donenfeld went after Victor Fox for the Wonder Man character (and Will Eisner testified that he was told to copy Superman), the same thing didn't happen when Ned Pines...

    The privileged class still exerting their power, despite all the messaging on diversity--that's certainly a factor why female super-heroes don't get the respect they should. But there are other...

    My cost saving measure for Solomon Grundy is to do what was done in the comics--where every time he "dies," he comes back different. So if they don't have the budget, he comes back as simply a tall...

    This is an "Art in current comic books" subject. Like with other current comic art, those examples are too crowded. It's about subtraction--taking away the details that overstuff the image and...

    Not forgotten but always dumped on is MY MOTHER THE CAR. But I remember liking the show. It was in my lane, when I was a kid. We already had a talking horse, a witch--and next a jeannie and later a...

    Elinore, sure, as a retcon. But it was Ella before that. And it was definitely Ellen on LOIS & CLARK--I rewatched all four seasons and did a post on that, not so long ago, where I tracked these kinds...
