    Yep. That's when he started becoming "The Big Blue Boy Scout" in print, which he really wasn't before that, IMO.

    Reeve was Superman for me back in '78 (though people here are wrong that he nailed it perfectly - Supes/Clark in the comics back then was different than in the Donnerverse), but Cavill's is the...

    Newest read: The Glory of Their Times (1966) by Lawrence S. Ritter. Though I have taken it out quite a few times from the library since the early '80s, I finally have included it as part of my own...

    Yeah, if incest were only Lazarus Long-like relationships between consenting adults that you find in later Robert Heinlein novels, that would be one thing (though still yucky to me :eek:), but with a...

    I remember seeing him for the first time on his variety show Rollin' on the River back in the early '70s, as well as an old commercial from around that time that featured his testimonial for a guitar...

    I frankly don't understand the concept of liking a character, but not to the point of reading his/her stories in solo form. The only thing that has ever held me back in regard to purchasing a solo...

    That's because it was still a superhero show when Firestorm left, which hasn't been the case for quite a while now.

    If it wasn't the smartest the writers allowed Barry to be, it certainly was up there. :)

    Well, Barry's scientific knowledge extends beyond mere forensics on the show, but that is usually ignored due to the team aspect of TV programs in the modern age.

    Wonder Woman was where I first noticed him (though he wasn't nearly as noticeable to me as Lynda Carter was :)). I thought he was likable as Steve Trevor, FWIW. He wasn't bad on The Carol Burnett...

    Does the exclusion also go for the Phantom Stranger? I know he wasn't a full-time JLA member, but he was as powerful as anybody pre-COIE.

    During the Bronze Age, they were considered to be of equal strength. Neither one was considered superior than the other. It was only post-COIE that the JSA became secondary in relation to the JL.

    I don't know what to say. The Martian Manhunter always seems to play sidekick to Kara on Supergirl, despite his formidable abilities. Ollie seemed to be the one to constantly save the day on Arrow,...

    Seriously. The choice between the death of the Speed Force and the end of everything is kind of a no-brainer.

    Unless you don't have any friends or family, outing yourself just doesn't make any sense, IMO.
