    I absolutely agree that's what allowed them to successful. They didn't have to compete with the heroes, and didn't engender fan resentment by displacing them (since they'd been canceled a while ago...

    Agree. I'm all for new independent heroes. Just not derivative new versions old heroes, and especially not ones of heroes that are still being used or ones that get killed off or put on a bus so...

    I had not known about that example. It further illustrates a problem I've had in the past, though. Two of them, really. The first is using Alfred as a sort of "word of God" where whatever he says is...

    I'd have called the way he tried to keep her way from the YJ (not just Superboy) controlling and a hallmark of a abuser - isolating their victims from others. Don't think that was the intent, but...

    I'm the absolute opposite and have wanted them to wash their hands of him since the early 2000s. I pretty much think he is the bad guy (at least with Damian and Tim and Dick - Jason's got some...

    When I first heard the name, I very much associated it with her now not being Bruce's adopted child anymore. But I thought it meant that of course she'd be restored to her place as daughter...

    I thought that it was specifically stated back then that making Alfred really long-term dead was DC's reaction to the enormous fan reaction the death brought. My response then and now is "meh" -...

    Yes, absolutely, it's flaw. It makes him either treat others (family, friends, colleagues) as puppets or get petulant when they refuse to act as such. He has little regard for what others want, even...

    I admit I don't know much about that in terms of Greek mythololgy - it certainly seems true for certain Biblical figures. When you have something created over a long period of time by multiple...

    The story with Lian was also written by Wolfman. Cheshire Contract. So the blame lies with him on the 20-22 references in the two different Lian issues (meeting her and Roy getting custody) no...

    Yes, I know that said he was 16 then. I agree. I just think he was first said 15, then aged to 16 between 1980 and 1984. Like Vic, who had a 19th birthday during the run - only without an on-panel...

    I pretty much feel that way about all the gods, which is one reason I prefer a Diana less steeped in mythology (or the gods less like their mythological counterparts). I personally do have just a...

    No. Mostly because most that I see retiring, I see retiring because they can no longer do the job to the level the need to be able to (in able to not endanger colleagues or bystanders). Superman...

    Gar was actually 15 in 1980 when NTT started, I think, and then became 16 during the course of the run. Dick was 19. But I can't remember if Dick turned 20 or Gar turned 16 first. Probably Gar....

    Ooh, you hit a sore point with me. I hate the notion of Jason as near Dick's age or even halfway between Dick and Tim. Originally, Jason died shortly after an issue when he was shown to be in 7th...

    Gar's not that young. More half-way split between the two. He was 15 when Dick and Donna were 19 (and Wally and Vic 18) in the early NTT days. And I think he'd turned 16 by time COIE rolled around...

    Raven is definitely Dick's generation to me. I dislike how she (and Gar) were kept young/de-aged to be on teams with the younger gens. Couldn't even read when Kory was on Damian's Teen Titans. It...

    I'm in the minority - don't generally like silver age (for most Superman characters). Much preferred Jimmy in radio show or bronze age (though Mr. Action was a bit too far). I liked seeing him grow...

    I'd think so.
  20. The supporting characters supporting characters

    Do you have a favorite love interest for Jimmy (from any medium or era)? Favored characterization for Alice? Favorite makeup of Perry's family?

    I know I don't like Perry's son turning out not...

    I liked when she used special items, because she wanted it so much, then asked a god (I'd have preferred Aphrodite to Zeus, since she was their patron originally) and was granted Amazon powers. No...

    I like the original origin of Cassie (before the idea of Zeus as her father was introduced). I think it's much more empowering for her pursue powers. And being the child of Zeus is hardly unique in...

    I am so much more a fan of the pre-COIE route, and was so annoyed at Barbara being made a protege/trainee of Batman later.

    You know what also hasn't much been played with before - the idea of Superman as the first hero, who inspired others. I want to see that. But that's not the nature of the golden or silver age, and...
