    I like the three books that Ralph Cosentino did on Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. They do what I wish other origin stories would do--coherent versions of the origins that synthesize the best...

    When I was making my Fall and Rise of the Supers list for the 1950s, I debated with myself whether to include western heroes. I mean, aren't they the guys that replaced super-heroes--so they don't...

    Does being a comic book fan mean that you have an understanding of the industry of comic book properties and the commercial viability of concepts? I guess if you have a youtube channel that might be...

    It's true especially for parents on T.V. shows. I like John Wesley Shipp, because he's the Flash. So I watch DAWSON'S CREEK because he plays the dad there--only to see his character killed off a few...

    I don't know. I didn't really bother much with either Waid reboot. I only really got into the Threeboot when Jim Shooter came on the book. Mark Waid did come out of Legion fandom--heavily influenced...

    Just because your parents die, that doesn't stop them from being involved in your life. They're with you always. That kind of love never dies.

    For me, the biggest reason not to have the Kents...

    The Legion of Super-Heroes appears before the Justice League of America and before the Teen Titans.

    Granted the Legion didn't get their own series until later. What pushed them was fan response....

    Searching Air Wave's previous posts, THE WATCHMEN was in this poll (I voted for it)--

    In my more petty moments, I get annoyed that there's all this stuff from the classic Superboy comics that we got, because of Superboy, but then they want to take the Superboy out of the story. No. I...

    I prefer to think that there are multiple possible futures. That was the premise of LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES 300 (June 1983).

    And SUPERMAN 295 (January 1976)--itself a follow-up to KAMANDI, THE LAST...

    I guess if we have issues with how Siegel and Shuster constructed Superman then we'll just have to wait until we pass on to the other side and sit down with them on a cloud and talk it over. Short of...

    Not really. If you've been following all of Air Wave's polls, the titles are spread out, so I'm guessing at some point WATCHMEN is going to be on another poll. After all, it's impossible to put every...

    So I wonder, who told the O.P. that the Kent's absolutely needed to be in Superman's adult life? It seems like this must have been someone in a position of authority.

    There's no need to bring creationism into or to make it about the Bible or to scoff at the logic, since this kind of thing happens in nature all the time. After all, if we're a newly evolved type of...

    In BATMAN 232 (June 1971), Bruce "was not yet old enough to vote." Michael Fleisher's encyclopaedia used this quote to establish that Bruce was not yet 21 when he embarked on his career.

    I see it as compensation for not having a Superboy (the Adventures of Superman when he was a Boy) comic. If Smallville is a trademark part of the Superman world (trademark = money), how do you keep...

    I'm ambivalent about villains gaining their own solo series--unless they're general purpose villains with no primary foe--because it takes away from the pleasure of seeing them battle their enemy, in...

    This version of GREEN LANTERN CORPS was the continuation of the GREEN LANTERN title that began in 1960. I really liked ANGEL LOVE and the original run of BOOSTER GOLD was also pretty good.

    I would lean into that rather than deleting it. It's so fascinating how in ADVENTURE COMICS 247, the costumes worn by Saturn Girl, Lightning Boy and Cosmic are a weird mix of futuristic space opera...

    It's odd that the number and range of powers developed steadily from the beginning into the 1960s and then after that nothing really. In fact, his powers were cut back except for heat vision which...

    These blanket statements always bug me. If someone said, "In the current version of Batman, he treats everyone like a sidekick or worse, not just Nightwing," I would have no qualms. But when these...

    I watched the first twenty minutes of IN THE HEIGHTS and then turned it off. Maybe as a Broadway musical it's great--I watched a youtube on the musical that pointed out why it was important--but the...

    THE OUTSIDERS was the deluxe format comic, which came after BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS.

    If I could have given a negative vote, I would have given it to HEX. I hated that comic--and what I hated...

    I was saying that the version of dystopias we've got in comic books are often very simplistic and not sophisticated--they appeal to us when we're teens, because we think we know everything. With...

    The dystopian vision of the future has been with us for a very very long time--maybe as long as the utopian vision.

    At one time, I hoped that the fad for dystopian futures would wear itself out...
