    I don't disagree with Nightwing, and to each their own with DD.

    But Waid's DD exploited Matt's blindness/abilities for dramatic effect, something other writers largely neglected

    I have to disagree.

    DD was stuck in the grimness for decades with no reprieve.

    Waid worked to contrast DD outside of that. Given the enemies DD faced, I'm hard pressed to see how they could...

    I don't think people pay for Batjerk.

    Noir compliments the character, and Batman is pretty popular to begin with. But unrelenting grimness leads to repetitive story telling. DD was stuck in a...

    Yes, God yes.

    Yes, God yes.

    Just remembered. I started watching the third season because one of the villains was the guy from Boomtown. Things did not go his way, heh
  6. We may not have settled civil rights, but we do...

    We may not have settled civil rights, but we do have basic civil rights for everyone. Hell, even corporations have basic rights.

    Given that Vision worked in the White House, I find it hard to...
  7. Because her story isn't as compelling as other...

    Because her story isn't as compelling as other members of the cast. She wastes screen time that could have gone to Cass or Huntress.

    In a superhero movie, Renee is basic



    That perspective in...

    Justified.

    I watched the first episode, not impressed. Boyd wasn't Boyd yet, and Raylan was kinda a dick.

    Dunno why I came back, but I'm glad I did.
  9. It was day two of the end of the world, and...

    It was day two of the end of the world, and Bullock was asking for a mercy kill, so that too.

    Yeah, Cass and Laura pull from the same archtype, but I doubt Cass influenced anything with Laura's creation.
  11. I think Cass will be fine (relatively). Every...

    I think Cass will be fine (relatively). Every story like this needs a woobie ;)
  12. My standard is that they contribute to the plot...

    My standard is that they contribute to the plot and cast in equal measure, and be allowed to demonstrate their full character.

    Cass didn't get that. You could have named her character literally...
  13. As the Question, she's a hero. And as Renee, as...

    As the Question, she's a hero. And as Renee, as you point out, she's just a supporting character.

    Every genre has its cliches, but 'burned out cop' doesn't bring anything to a superhero movie.
  14. Fair enough BoP is traditionally set all...

    Fair enough



    BoP is traditionally set all over the world, actually. And while Gordon et all have appeared, they weren't cast members like Montoya is. Jim appeared in Justice League, didn't make...
  15. True, but Dinah is traditionally a white...

    True, but Dinah is traditionally a white character. So its a valid question, philosophically if nothing else, if you change the race of a white character and little else about the character, does...
  16. No version of Cass prior appears in BoP. In name...

    No version of Cass prior appears in BoP. In name only
  17. To compound the issue, IMO, they constantly had...

    To compound the issue, IMO, they constantly had the villains throw it in Danny's face. When the villains shit-talk has an actual point, that's when you have serious trouble, IMO.

    What's sad is...
  18. I don't think that Sun Girl was a legacy...

    I don't think that Sun Girl was a legacy character. But Su Girl does have a granddaughter who was introduced in Invaders, IIRC
  19. It felt rushed, and IMO, the writers screwed...

    It felt rushed, and IMO, the writers screwed Danny's character by having him desert his post for reasons he wasn't even sure of.

    As lame as Agents of Shield got, you could at least root for them...
  20. Agreed. It robs the X-Men of their longest human...

    Agreed. It robs the X-Men of their longest human ally, introduces a long line of WTF-ness to the entire run and will likely run roughshod over associated characters (Banshee, Wolfsbane, Excalibur...

    They make minor decisions, but Harley sets the tone (hell, she decides where the 3rd act happens) to the point that she controls where the 3rd act happens.

    It's fair to compare this t the first...
  22. Yes, ensemble movies often do have a clear lead,...

    Yes, ensemble movies often do have a clear lead, but they spread out the action/development to the entire cast.

    There are also ensemble movies that are hijacked by the most popular characters....
  23. Yeah, that's my opinion, basically. This was...

    Yeah, that's my opinion, basically. This was never an ensemble movie, just Harley with a known supporting cast
  24. I have found it's rather naive to believe...

    I have found it's rather naive to believe everyone who says that they have good motives, from politicians on down.

    And you're right, I don't have any direct evidence. But there is a great deal of...

    Is anyone short in live action?

    I'm serious, everyone who isn't the Rock or some special thug always seems to be about the same height (excluding those with dwarfism, obviously)
