    Fisher is still trying to put pressure on WB through social media with these statements, but is it even remotely having any impact on potential ticket buyers? I have asked similar questions before...

    Good point (in the NYC area, I'm not sure if it ever has left the airwaves in over 60 years), though the sketches still appeared on Jackie Gleason programs during the '50s and '60s. In fact, one of...

    Look how many shows from that era that we watched in rerun form that were only around two years: The Munsters, The Addams Family, and F Troop come to mind. How many two-year shows from this century...

    My sentiments exactly, BA. Same goes for the speedsters, too.

    It's probably been acknowledged for a variety of people here and there, but at the end of the day, there's only one World's Greatest Detective and he has had that sobriquet before I started reading...

    They didn't have the luxury to just snap their fingers and tell us we "evolved" like they do in the Trekverse 400 years in the future, though. ;)

    I'm shocked no one has questioned that yet (not me!) :)

    Best after Bruce? I'll go with Ralph, but it's kind of a spin-of-the-wheel pick with so many excellent choices out there.

    Heh. I recall her show on one of the NYC UHF channels. Her clothes always looked like they were going to fall off any minute. :)

    That I could definitely see. I remember her on The Merv Griffin Show back then - she was hot stuff for us teens! :D

    Just started The Autobiography of Malcom X (1965) by Alex Haley, a book I haven't read since my college days back in the mid-'80s.

    As someone who was a regular viewer from Season 2, I was satisfied with finale and will miss the show in the future. Thank you for the entertainment!
  13. Did Marston ever portray her as strong or...

    Did Marston ever portray her as strong or stronger than her male super-counterparts? I can't think of a GA story offhand, but I haven't read all of them. At any rate, I'm certainly all for her being...

    No problems. I only made my post because I wasn't sure how you defined the Silver Age, since some people (incorrectly) use it interchangeably with the Bronze Age. :)

    The vast majority of fiction has portrayed women as weaker than men for millennia. Yes, there are exceptions, but there is a reason why they are defined that way. It's only recently that the tide has...

    Captain Marvel was never around during the Silver Age, FWIW. During the Bronze Age, he was clearly comparable to Superman in the comics. It was post-COIE when things changed.
  17. Understood and I don't disagree, but creators...

    Understood and I don't disagree, but creators (and readers of both genders decades ago) just accepted, as in the real world, that the male superheroes would be stronger than the female ones.
  18. It's less politics or anything else, but based on...

    It's less politics or anything else, but based on reality - women are physically weaker than men. It's understandable that they were presented as such, even if anything is possible fictionally. Now...

    In 1980, she was ten years old, so I'm thinking Starfire wasn't inspired by Naomi. ;)
  20. I won't speak for younger generations, but I...

    I won't speak for younger generations, but I believe the Bronze Age generation that I belong to and those older thought Supe's power set was the #1 thing that made him who he was. Everything else,...

    Bates was the guy when I was a kid first reading Flash comics, so I went with him. Is he the greatest? It's impossible to say, since storytelling has changed over the years. Regardless, he was the...

    It has nothing to about hypocrisy, but money. If WB felt their bottom line would be hurt by keeping Heard on, she would have been jettisoned some time ago. Apparently, that's not the case. We shall...

    But how will Marvel handle legacies when they have them just half as long as DC has had them through quite a few decades? As I posted earlier in this thread, making comparisons between Marvel and DC...

    My favorite was #142, which featured the Atom, Aquaman, Elongated Man, and the beautiful green-haired Willow:
