    If anyone at WB thought they were going to get a big long-term sales boost from the identity outing, they need to be fired.

    Look at the numbers. Superman sells what Superman sells, and changes in...

    That's assuming the person who comes in (if Jim Lee doesn't just take over the whole role) isn't worse. This industry is in a weird place, where it's IP's are bigger than they've been for decades but...

    Yup. Just because Didio is leaving doesn't mean things are going to magically get better. There's a chance, but it's far from certain.

    I think we're likely too deep into the 5G stuff to put the brakes on completely. Creators are already probably well into their plans, and it takes time to change direction. 5G might not end up...

    To be fair, the general audience has little idea that legacy is even a thing with DC.

    In larger media, how many examples do we have of legacy? We've got some examples in Young Justice, with stuff...

    I'm giving it a C.

    There were some real gems under Didio. Truly, some fantastic stories have been told. Some serious duds too, and the human race is worse off for them having been published. But...

    Remember back when we were talking about the situation with Dick and I pointed out that, if Didio's personal bias really was the reason Dick has been treated so poorly, all we'd need is someone above...

    Before we all start to celebrate, let's find out what this actually is, where Didio ends up in the company (if he holds any position at all) and most importantly, who replaces him and what they...

    They've tried the "mentors" thing with the Titans before, and haven't had much success with it. Which is fine by me, I don't see "teaching" as a viable long-term choice for the NTT. Honestly, almost...

    On top of what others have said, I think DC not only considers the NTT totally redundant, but can't figure out what role they *could* fill. The League are the biggest and best heroes, the ones you...

    That's me too. I'm one of those weird fans who wants Bruce to be a total, Frank Miller style d-bag, but even I know that's not the best direction. The 90's cartoon hit a real nice balance for the...

    The movie. Not even a question.

    The first direct-to-DvD animated movie was pretty solid too.

    A few times from what I've seen. And it is f*cking hilarious. But you gotta get the humor, if the jokes in that show aren't your style the whole thing just looks offensive and crappy. But the clips...

    It's all subjective but I'd say the stuff we had right before the reboot, 2009-2010, was some of the worst I've ever read. The only saving grace of Grounded was Chris Roberson injecting some of his...

    I never read the tie-ins. How'd he come back? It never happens in the game itself, unless you count Cyborg's ending.....and that's not Dick, that's an abomination.



    Impossible to know. We don't...

    Well, one thing to keep in mind is that one person's "great story" is another person's abomination on paper. And Superman has been around a long time, there's a lot of different versions of him, and...

    Now that the third and final issue of Superman Smashes the Klan is out, I'm just saying that yes, this book is essential reading. Not just for Golden Age fans, but for Superman fans. Or hell, it...

    Just finished the third book. Oh, great Caesar's ghost, I love it so much. Perfect Superman. Morrison and Maggin should be proud.

    I've never actually listened to the the radio show. I'm going to...

    Man of Steel. It's a great sci-fi film even if it's a questionable superhero movie, it's got some of the best fight scenes in a DC film, and I enjoy and appreciate this take on Clark, who isn't the...

    I find this is an issue with Clark quite often. He's a nuanced character with a lot of layers and depth, and not all those layers are bright and perfect and shiny. But he doesn't have big obvious...

    Nix is a Monitor. I assume he's "plot device" powerful, and outclasses characters like Clark and Billy. Maybe being stuck in the orrery of worlds makes Nix weaker, but he's still a higher dimensional...

    Yeah, the Black Label mini thing is just a rumor out of Bleeding Cool. Right now, the only things we know for a fact about 5G is the stuff from Wonder Woman 750, Flash 750 (has that shipped yet? It's...

    Yeah it was.

    Maybe, if we're lucky and the gods are kind, this whole 5G thing will have had the time for some serious proof reading and we'll avoid the problems deadlines have caused past reboots....

    Haven't read the story yet. Figured I'd wait on word of mouth and see how it ended, then get the trade if I heard good things.

    This ending.....sounds like when he first tapped into the speed...
