    Eh. That's near impossible to measure. You are welcome to see the such. Which was kind of the point of this whole thread. :)

    I like all that you say, but I'd keep to his original origin: a desperado's kid adopted by a space criminal that killed his father over some loot and adopted the boy, who would eventually grow up to...

    Yes, I agree Doom is tragic, but I have a few quibbles and questions.

    I just reread FF Annual 2, which gave Doom's origin story. It had his mother "slain" by the Latverian aristocrats, but didn't...

    Am I remembering right that each of the Losers had an individual feature (except Gunner & Sarge, who were always a package deal) that was discontinued before the Losers rolled out? If so, had there...

    Seriously?

    There's a bit of a wrong turn in that need to start with the beginning that both of the Big Two made starting in the 1980s (it seems to me). Up to that point, there'd been some editorial paradigms...

    Looking through the postings, I find I most like the illustrations of Z that convey fun-loving or playful qualities of the character.

    Well, there was that thing where Dr. Doom was mainly hunted because he was running a series of scams on the aristocrats he (justly) blamed for his father's death, including one that made a dude go...

    Particularly the Timm-DCAU version of him. Not evil, just sad, and hopelessly unable to understand the world in which he was born.

    What about Luthor? In every sense, he is the Ubermensch, except envy eats him alive, and it's just Superman on which it fixates.

    Then there's The Leader. Deformed by the thing that elevated him...

    I don't know that I'd want a B5 reboot. The effects could be improved, certainly, and maybe even some of the dialogue, but I don't know that the story can be improved.

  17. Creative Superpower Uses You Love (or Would Love To See).

    Some of my favorite superhero depictions have featured characters doing something inventive with their powers (as opposed to straight up punching, blasting, etc.).

    Firestorm's original series, Firestorm: The Nuclear Man, only lasted five issues before getting caught up in the DC Implosion of the late 1970s, and he was trundled off to the JLA, along...

    I can't go along with the premise that there is a "The Best" in the category. Several of those mentioned are really great. And there are several others to add to them.

    Batman spends too high a percent of his time in costume. To truly be effective in his mission, he should spend a greater percent of his time in guises like Matches Malone.
