    I think Adumar has more concentrated humor - Allstonís A-Game is well above most of his peers in both the series and the novel... but for some reason, Wes Janson, of all people, being the straight...

    That Shadow of the Batgirl book showed how you can do a “mundane” supporting cast for Cass... it just has to be admitted that she can’t really have the Tim Drake or Stephanie Brown-style...

    Crimson Empire is the epitome of the kind of “hard action movie” stuff SW could do without needing the Force to play a very big role. Kir Kanos vs Carnor Jax *does* give Jax the Force, but it’s still...

    Cir-El, The Strange Visitor

    Warlord Zsinj is an amazingly creative and fun villain in Allston’s hands.

    His Raptors were also kind fo sadly forgotten after those books were done. If they made a TV show with it, I’d abuse the...

    And I think that’s a useful villain to have occasionally.

    And honestly? A Neo-Nazi school shooter and “mind-molester” who commits patricide out of insecurity at his weakness, and who’s still...

    Yeah!... though I’ll confess I read the book Jackson Miller published instead of the comic. The “Sith Court” made up of that single family was a nice twist in the usual idea about them!

    Xanatos was an archetypal “Dark Jedi” villain for that series, a bit over the top in his obvious villains and cut-and-paste pseudo-Sith design.... but I still liked him!;)

    Resurrected this thread because I noticed some similar thoughts in threads about Metallo, Parasite, Toyman, and others.

    And I’m going to repackage the posts I had in those threads for this one......

    Yeah, the key to Power Girl is the attitude and personality, but the attribute everyone mentions first with her is her... assets.

    At least Spoiler’s Young Justice redesign was smart in the it simply tweaked the design in an aesthetically pleasing way. A brown Nightwing suit with a red belt does not make a good costume for Tim....
