    With Characters like Batman, it's near impossible to break the top ten in the villain hierarchy. At best your settling for a future minor cameo villain. To me, it's the mid-tier heroes like Aquaman...

    What's the difference functionally, between being weak against magic and not having any natural defense against it in a story situation?

    You mean saved Daredevil from cancelation. All that whimsy wasn't doing all that well in the '70s.

    Why not? There is nothing in Superman's powerset that indicates that he should have any defenses against magical attacks. All his powers are physically based. It goes back to the thread that I had...

    Kamala, Tim, and Cass all took monikers that weren't in use when the took them up. They weren't replacing anybody. Barbara Gordon hadn't been Batgirl for years, Dick Grayson hadn't been Robin for...

    A. The original character is so obscure that no one will miss them. Mister Terrific is a good example of this.

  8. Toy man: What is your favorite version.

    I Still think the Toyman in the animated series Is the best one visually. The Jester version never really worked for me . A lot of the more modern ones either don’t look menacing enough or aren’t...

    If Superman didn’t live in a shared universe this would be true but he does. Not being much of a threat to anyone other then Superman is a factor, perhaps a small factor, but a factor none the less.

    I don’t think their is anything wrong with Cheetah, I’m just not not happy with her status by default role.
  11. Why is Cheetah, Wonderwoman’s Archenemy?

    She’s Diana’s most commonly used protagonist. Their has been more versions of her then Diana herself. But why is that? Only recently has she been made into a physical threat to Diana. And why did...

    The problem with Metallo is that he really doesn't have much of use outside of Superman and the Superman mythos. Besides the Kryptonite gimmick, what makes him interesting? Giant superstrong robots...

    Maksai works as a villain but perhaps not her main nemesis. I agree the evil relative angle is kind of played out. They seem to have her on the typical "female character road to redemption arche,"...

    Harley was pushed but she was also pretty popular from the begining. It just shows that you cant really create popularity. Some characters are just created at the right time with the right...

    I’ve always thought Animal man and Vixen being able to mimic aliens and magic creatures was a little overkill. Their are enough obscure and interesting real animal abilities out their that they...

    I use to think that Diana didn't need a city, but as time has gone on I've come to appreciate the benefits that having a city of their own can have for a superhero. I think a lot of the issues that...

    Can you name any unique settings on Themyscira? Can you identify any locals of note? Gotham is Gotham because it isn't some vague local. It's a very specific local with iconic settings within it....

    Honestly, I'd put Parasite over Metallo, as far as uniqueness and actual threat potential. Toyman is on the same level of usage. Metallo suffers from having a rather limited theme. He's a robot...

  21. Did reboots like Crisis, and New 52 ultimately prove to be pointless?

    What do they accomplish other than piss people off and confuse people? They don't really simplify thinks all that much, in fact with a lot of characters it makes them more convoluted.

    because it's where she comes from.
    I feel the abundance of Themyscira appearances is due to the lack of other iconic locations in Wonder woman's mythos. Most Superheroes have a plethera of other...
  23. Is Themyscira used to much in Wonderwoman stories?

    I've always felt that the whole point of the island is that she leaves it to become a hero and go on her adventures, but increasingly most of her stories tend to revolve around the island its...

    That's my question too. We live in a country where mass shootings are a common enough occurrence that asking this question is not silly.
