    "Supergirl" came to the CW from CBS, because CBS deemed its ratings sub-par. Which was okay for CW because those rating were considered better for their station/shows/ranking. (more or less as you...

    Some have wondered whether Mary will become a cape too, and I'm not against that, but I think the current episode shows there are plenty of meaty stories for Mary and Catherine too. It was a slow...

    Sorry if this is not the right/best place to discuss the CW's Batwoman, but I had to say that each episode seems better, like they're finding their ground.

    The story about what happened to...

    I thought Val was not really a mutant, just a genius. Maybe I missed that, lol.

    Yes, I agree with this. Actors are more likely to have or get or find inside scoops. Or anyone who is employed there. That is why in some cases they threaten jobs, etc. for those who might spoil.

    I think both actors for BB and Medusa were good/credible, but cgi for the hair was just not good enough. I felt the actors were okay/enough and might grow more into their roles, but the budget and...

    It may be that they'll just play that off of 'bigots' who never changed. The occasional and horrid malcontent who still won't bake for gay weddings, etc.

    Yep, known. The Bette is a nickname off of Elizabeth, obviously.
  9. Yes, I agree on the confusion of similar names. ...

    Yes, I agree on the confusion of similar names. I really don't think Mary will be sidekick fighter kind of person. But I think she will be a valuable member of Kate's team. Who knows, and I agree...

    Yes, Betty was originally a bookend to Robin per the comic code and/or public backlash on Batman and comics back then.

    Possibly the intent of her revival and retcon as Flamebird is homage but it...

    Those are good and fair questions. The answers are murky and maybe unfair - but mostly to Bette or Betty, snicker.

    The original Batwoman never totally went out of canon, I'm pretty sure. Just not...

    I was actually able to watch "Batwoman" again as the encore presentation, last night after "The Flash" and I guess while I noticed just a little of what I missed or didn't pick up on, I'm fairly...

    I "got" the Havok and Wasp thing. It was in one of the early runs of Uncanny Avengers and the whole Planet X story, Apocalyse twins, Hang, etc was pretty awesome. I always thought the perfect ending...

    I finally caught it and was mildly pleased. I am thinking better than 'ok'. so I liked it; I'm not very hard to please. I think there are points where Kate's delivery is just a little flat, but...

    I, sadly, will have to catch this later, in the week even. I work today and then my 2nd job is from 7 to 9 tonight and then I have to rush and make a potluck for an event I'm going to tomorrow...

    In "Elegy" one of the earlier works about Batwoman, Bette is reintroduced in the story as a cousin who has always been fond of Kate. Jacob and Cathy both try to get Kate to notice Bette more, but...

    I think there is another point to bring up. From a cultural perspective, how do we even know that Atlanteans have the same hang ups or thoughts / concerns over same sex/gender issues. Maybe they...

    I have a 'head-canon' about Bette's parents. Semi - ooky - like any soap operatic themed comic might be.

    Twins run in families, so Bette's father is Jacob's brother. Let's call him Phillip, since...

    "Betty" Hamilton... is that Archie's Betty?

    But yeah, simplify. I suspect that Mary will become a vigilante at some point. Possibly "Flamebird" even.

    I remember reading this story, reprinted in one of the Marvel reprint series of the late '60s. I was also reading/knew of Sub-Marinar at that time due to his cartoon and stories in the more current...

    MN1, I'm sorry you feel that way. I don't mean to bash Steph but do believe that almost all concepts are recycled, even if not exactly. That is why we have a Batwoman, who is almost the original...

    My own take on Sue and Namor (and I really liked the 'idea' of their attraction, just not the actual implementation) {also, reader of FF consistently since 1968}

    is that Sue and Namor feel deep...

    Namor fighting off the crown/Marchan's influence could explain almost everything about Namor in the 'modern' era. His attraction to women that he shouldn't be, but a lot of stuff.
