    The only time Kryptonians have ever been actually extinct in the universe was right after Doomsday killed Superman and that only lasted for a few months.

    The Last Son of Krypton thing is symbolic...

    Agreed about Planetary. It's probably the best and most thorough deconstruction of pulp fiction that comics have seen, with the notable exception of Watchmen.

    Were Hawk & Dove ever removed from continuity?...

    Were Hawk & Dove ever removed from continuity? They had a crappy New 52 comic by Leifeld, didn't they? And then they appeared again in Titans Hunt. Currently, they haven't been seen, but I don't...

    Unnecessarily complicated has been DC's guiding principle for decades now ;)

    Remember when Pre-Crisis Black Canary's origin was that she thought she was her mother because she was stuck in another...

    Oooo, good call. I hope he comes back soon. If there's any concern about his existence aging Ollie too much, they can just say that he's from the future or that Ollie knocked up Connor's mom when he...

    Totally agreed that Steel has been given the short end of the stick, but I was talking more about characters who had been retconned out of continuity by Flashpoint, but haven't been restored yet.

    Who's still MIA in the DCU?

    While not everyone gets equal time in the spotlight, there were a few characters that were removed from continuity altogether thanks to all the time shenanigans.

    Is everybody back know or is there...

    Can't believe I forgot about Jon "Superboy" Kent, his age, and his very existence ;)

    Ha, yes. I gotta edit that ;)

    As to Superman/Supergirl and Batman/Batgirl, I think you could do it with either, but Superman is more high profile and universally adored by the public within the...

    Yeah, I think Hal did have a lot to prove right after his rebirth, but I'm glad we're getting the more mellow version from Morrison now.

    I don't think creators should be making creative decisions based upon what homophobic bigots might argue. ;)

    There are plenty of gay men who have biological children that are also gay.
  14. What are the main sticking points within Superman fandom?

    Discussions among Superman fans tend to come down to disagreements over a handful of key issues.

    Political vs Apolitical

    Should Superman be an agent of change actively working to fix the...

    I am not saying there should be radical shifts in the status quo each time a new creative team jumps on board. The basics are generally always the same, but give creators more wiggle room to play...

    I think you’re misunderstanding what I am proposing. I don't think they need to radically change the status quo every few months, but rather find a great creative team that has an interesting...

    I think you could try this approach with the monthly books and it could work. I mean, at this point, what do they have to lose?

    Why? Why is consistency necessary for a character to be popular? The important aspects of Superman have been very consistent for decades. He's the last son from a doomed planet sent to Earth who was...

    I'm saying take the "whatever is best for the story" approach of the one-shots and elseworlds books and apply it to the monthly books to see if it works longform.

    DC can and should still establish a solid creative direction with a clear foundation on the monthly books, which aren't going anywhere, but, let's be honest, they are going to matter less and less...

    Darwyn's New Frontier and Robinson's Golden Age are exactly what I was thinking, too.

    I mean, yeah, this idea could be done badly, but I'd rather hope for the best than assume the worst. Based...

    I prefer the Wildstorm stuff on their own Earth, but there's potential in this idea if it's done right. Really all depends on the story and creative team.

    That's what I was thinking.

    Supergirl and Superman are a great way to show how society and our media portray people of similar expertise, but when one of them is a young woman. I don't think this...

    I slot jeans and T-shirt Superman into my head canon in between the death of Ma & Pa Kent and him joining the Daily Planet.

    If they could relaunch the Earth One Superman, it should be done with...

    I think it's all about leaving all the toys in the toybox for all creators. Why limit everyone to one version of Krypton? Let them play with all of them and let the readers figure out how it all...
