    Every franchise has its small and overarching pros and cons. Until recently I didn't much like Batman because of the cons foremost and then the way he's put over Superman in everything. Well actually...

    Can we admit that Golden Child is a briefly previewed, pending story with only one line associated stories, and skip all the off topic rants? If not I think this all can wait until we get a legit...

    I think it's easy to come up with several reasons why tornados and severe storms are so popular with a young or turbulent Superman. One of my favorite gags pre crisis had him literally eat a tornado,...

    Oh I thought the line was cancelled.

    I want to like Venditti but the approach he has taken to some characters I like are too far away from what I like about them, namely Hawkman. But we'll see.

    This was really something along the lines of what I think about the return of the classic costume. After they switched back we saw Wolverine get the Byrne costume largely discarded in 1992, Cap...

    A few years into the golden age, we get pa on his deathbed essentially talking Clark into becoming Superman. Notably he mentions being on the side of the law. Different from what was basically a cold...

    Not really. I mean the Legion's history with Superboy was summarized early on by Byrne, it's just that we were also told that it wasn't the same Kal El as the one readers followed. I still don't...

    You just can't think about it too hard. It's kind if annoying that writers flip the rules and meaning at convenience, but that's the only way to do it and still come away with something fun. Bizarro...

    So one other solicit: World's Finest. There are at least two killer, high demand Batman trades published more cost effectively, but doing Bronze Superman is pretty special.

    That's a funky Superman. It's weird that the hauntingly beautiful art of Maleev sometimes doesn't stick a landing. You get something like this or his raggedy Namor.

    Oh and I'd expect the event...

    From 1986 to 2003 you clearly have Hank Henshaw, Lex Luthor, Brainiac, and Doomsday... then maybe Intergang? It's sort of up for grabs after the top 4, but Intergang includes so many characters.

    Yeah, it's more or less defined as an Azzarello "cynical, sci fi potboiler" forced to occupy the same space as Jim Lee's"Labors of Superman." Bleak with shifty morality, complex issues both realistic...

    I think being afraid of silly is its own problem though. You take his first five villains with staying power, and the only one who's not arguably silly is Luthor.
