    I'm Baaaaack!! Did you all have fun without me? Anyway, for anyone who hasn't gone, Universal Studios Orlando has an awesome Halloween thing going on, and the Ghostbusters Haunted House is worth...

    I'm still packing, so here goes: :)



    I'm saying it's a movie, not an ethics class. He doesn't conform to one, he makes a choice and goes with it. There's some Golden Age "can do" goodness I'd...

    I like it. Maybe a lot of stand alone films would be better than them having a big plan. They've never been able to manage that without a road map that I can tell (roadmap example being Harry...

    Partly, it *is* because of people's notions of who Superman is, absolutely. But it's also about what attracts them to the character.

    Snyder's not a Batman fan like Timm, but I do feel he "gets"...

    Oh, you missed my edits. That's my bad, sorry about that!

    What I'm saying isn't that people are right, just understanding why they reacted how they did. Part of people "knowing" Superman's...
  6. It's not a judgement call on that, I'm just...

    It's not a judgement call on that, I'm just saying why people would react the way they reacted to them in MoS. Of course Golden Age Superman will always matter. Heck, I wrote a draft movie version...
  7. It does and it doesn't. As I said before, I...

    It does and it doesn't. As I said before, I didn't have much problem with the Kents' characterization (aside from the "maybe" line a *tiny* bit) as they were in MoS (my biggest fault with them is...
  8. You'd have to swing pretty loose with most...

    You'd have to swing pretty loose with most versions of canon (Golden Age above aside) to get the Kents where they are in MoS. I personally didn't mind the take on the Kents necessarily (though I can...

    But that doesn't change the fact that this characterization of Hippolyta is at least somewhat canonical (if not quite to the same degree):
  10. I don't think the intention was to show he was...

    I don't think the intention was to show he was reckless, but because they didn't put a bow on him learning as these things happen, people got that impression (I just saw it as writing/editing...
  11. I don't think it's the "rookie Superman" thing...

    I don't think it's the "rookie Superman" thing alone that does it, though. If they'd put more of a bow on these being learning experiences (like it blows up and you see his reaction; the catalyst...

    For me (with sound), it depends on if he's ready for it; if Superman can hone in on frequencies, that means he can kinda tone them out, too. That would make him much harder for someone like Canary...

    Oh, gotcha. Thanks for the clarification, I took that completely the wrong direction, lol!

    Amen. Holy moly, was that on point. Well done!



    True. And if I was writing him, he'd know better - for the same reason he no longer tells people to "slap a"... you know where I'm going with...

    Maybe at the start of S:TM I could see that, yeah. By Superman III, though? Reeve was pretty bulky by then.

    Well, they're not *exactly* the same person. Their various realities would have shaped them all a bit differently - just in a more subtle way than, say, the Earth where all the genders and/or races...

    I know there have been numerous "passive" takes on Superman, but I think it's been a lot of what has kept modern takes from really connecting. He doesn't need to be active all the time, but a movie...

    Wow, no kidding. I mean, in one picture, he already does.

    Well, kinda. He comes out of hiding because otherwise Zod will destroy the planet. But that was my big problem with the movie - as much action as their is, for much of it he's technically a passive...

    That new pic looks good! Much better than the last one (clearer). The stubble still strikes me as at least semi-retired, but maybe he hadn't shaved it yet? Either way, he looks good!

    Yes. Also, yes.

    *pause*

    I said yes, right?

    Only trouble I see is how little they used Firestorm to make things more equal, narratively.. it means that they'd come up with something to keep...

    That kinda speaks to what I was saying. Can you find enough things in the Snyder films to conclude that he was a good person who wants to help? Absolutely. Were we shown enough of that to fully...

    Same. I think the most we're going to get from Kingdom Come is that he's older and he's lost Lois - there will be so many players in this thing, I doubt they'll have much more time for exploration...

    Him being "Superdad" wouldn't have to mean Superman is secondary. It could be just an ensemble cast, with the three of them (Lois, Jon, and Clark) as mains. Maybe some episodes focus more on one or...
