    The thing with Hypertime, is that it's not something you implement or don't; it's a description of a naturally-occurring and unavoidable situation. Discontinuities and conflations will occur in...

    It's not as if we haven't seen plenty of stories of Batman being hunted and pursued by the authorities, including past friends. Bruce seen as going too far or out of the public or authoritarian good...

    Wouldn't Steve Rogers, who'd had a nearly ten year general absence from comics, be the biggest in terms of anglophone comics? Cap's got to be the actually most successful, right?

    There've been a number of "why don't you give it all to charity?" and "being Batman is expensive, can't you open a hospital?" stories.

    Let's not forget that Batman/Bruce can't stand up under...

    Have you got a link to anything on that? More, the "girlfriend," issue, as the genderless pronoun thing bounces around pretty actively all the time, with different groups or different proposed terms....

    He also received Lazarus Pit fluid infusion a few years ago. If this really bugs anybody, there are several ways, in-story, that explain his relative youthful appearance and energy, for the days,...

    Ellis' Stormwatch, which was a good mix of politically-minded action pieces. Most of the first two years of The Authority are slambang stuff. The Establishment is funny, weird stuff. Adam Warren's...

    Some of the artists have done them very young, the last few years.

    Hitch drew Apollo as good-looking and healthy and all, but he looked a man with some years under his belt. Excellent hair. And,...

    I love Night Cries. Not something I'll read every week, but it looks fantastic, the characterizations are solid, and it's one of the smarter focuses on James Gordon.

    The (new) WildStorm Universe versions will be showing up in the stuff Warren Ellis is curating/partially-writing.

    I kind of hope they either get a solid reinvention or they're back to "classic"...

    It was during Hama's Wolverine, but it was apparently an editor's rewrite and Hama ends up "punishing" the father a few issues later, when he could. Wolverine catches the X-Men's neighbor in a...

    Finally got around to reading Eidolon straight through. That was a lot more fun than I was expecting.

    Some aspects were always dodgy. Fairchild's butt being the main focus during her getting to know her father scenes in an early issue, etc.

    Some points look better now than they probably did at the...

    It's a push for Tim. And, not a terrible one.

    But, it was also just a teensy bit ridiculous.

    Different talent are reachable on different social media (or, often, by their public emails), and since we have no stars in anglophone comics, as it is, most of them are easier to hear back from...

    Uh huh.

    So, no one has the same powers, really, except the stretchy one, and none of them have the same personalities, and none of them have the same dynamics, but they're... the same.

    "Batgod" has always been overblown by some fans, and likely always will be.

    Like, "Batman is realistic," it's something that no year's worth of comics will ever actually bear out.

    As much as they get compared by people who don't seem to really enjoy anything FF, I have to wonder if there really is much crossover appeal in a big way.
