    I think the discussion has gotten away from the question. Being a "True Love" doesn't necessarily mean that Steve is a great character or a continuing character in the story. If he serves the purpose...

    Even though that ethos of the 1950s male is passé (or should be), I think there's something about George Reeves as Clark Kent that's indelible, in the way that 1980s and 1990s comic book...
  4. Poll: Referring back to a book about Edgar Rice...

    Referring back to a book about Edgar Rice Burroughs by Dick Lupoff that I read many many years ago, I'd say it's harder for Superman or Batman to be in the same league as a Sherlock Holmes or a...

    I remember liking the book on its own merits. It was kind of great to see Byrne doing a throwback to the original Doom Patrol. There wasn't anything horrible about it on that score. It was just hard...

    I certainly liked Denny O'Neil's Batman a lot in the first half of the 1970s. But Frank Robbins was the other Batman writer at the time (he may have even wrote more stories than Denny) and it always...

    I might not be a big fan of what John Byrne did with Superman in the late 1980s, but his SUPERMAN & BATMAN: GENERATIONS (the first two series, not as much the third series) are the best fun I had...
  8. Poll: I quite liked the Steve Trevor that was being...

    I quite liked the Steve Trevor that was being fleshed out in Greg Rucka's last run. And I like the Steve Trevor in the Wonder Woman movies.

    The problem isn't Trevor or any other character--it's a...

    I'm a fan of the original Detective Chimp run--by John Broome and Carmine Infantino--in THE ADVENTURES OF REX THE WONDER DOG. But I have to say I have not read much of Bobo's recent stories. I...

    The main reason I would go to these big blockbusters on the preview night or opening day was in hopes of having a big communal experience as a packed audience watched said movie for the first time. I...
  11. Poll: Based on what the writers after Charles Moulton...

    Based on what the writers after Charles Moulton have done with him or based on my own sense of the character?

    I can see where, given how badly many writers have used him (but not all), one might...

    After Jack Schiff left the Batman books (in early 1964)--he took Martian Manhunter with him to HOUSE OF MYSTERY--and Julie Schwartz took over, bringing Ralph with him from THE FLASH--making the...

    Same for me, except it was WONDER WOMAN 202, which was the second part of that two-part story--it would be many years before I got the issue before it and the full story. Much to my chagrin. I read...

    Yeah I really hated seeing Morena Baccarin turned into a plot device to bookend the movie. I guess she wasn't available or they didn't want to pay her to actually be an active character in the movie....

    Metallo was a one-issue character (he died)--in the same comic that introduced Kara Zor-El by the way. Superman did dream about the man with the Kryptonite heart, but when they finally got around to...

    I watched this movie last year around this time. For some reason, I'd never seen it before, even though I was well aware of it. And it's a pretty great John Hughes movie.

    But as a Canadian, I find...

    When I think of best stories, I usually think of single issue stories or maybe a two-parter, not an entire run or an extended story arc.

    D.C. used to do "Best of" reprints--

    First in the...

    Just note that Bob Kane wasn't the writer on Batman. You could argue that he generated ideas which were made into stories, but other writers (especially Bill Finger) did all the work. If you put Bob...

    I think one of the reasons I enjoyed Marty Pasko's run so much is that--having been a comic book fan and a critic himself--he used everything he had learned from all those other writers and put it...

    I know that some movies are in production, but I don't imagine it's a high volume, especially with all the restrictions and procedures they have to follow. If movie theatres do open up by next...

    Hard to think of many houses or apartments where we got the complete floorplan--usually they were just confined to one or two rooms.

    I like Mac and Sally's place in San Francisco, MCMILLAN &...

    Writers like Alan Moore and Jack Kirby, as much as I like them, don't really pass the first test. To be a top Superman writer, they have to have written a considerable number of Superman stories--and...

    In reality yes. Anything in the universe is bound by the physical laws of the universe. That's what makes it a universe. The basic theory is that a universe comes already with the mathematical rules...
