    No, I thought it was a slur against Black men--as in "they are all pimps" and dress like that and talk like that and just exist to be made fun. That's about the only significant person of colour in...

    There are a series of videos on Youtube that redo the Harryhausen stop motion with a higher frame rate, so the movement seems more fluid. Kind of amazing to think that that's all the animation needed...

    Mostly old stuff, especially since the pandemic because I can't get to any comic book stores. But I read the odd new thing online--or take out books from the library. I recently finished reading all...

    This would seem to be one of those D.C. topics we're not supposed to talk about--but . . .

    I rewatched SUPERMAN (1978) yet again, just recently. I've lost count, but this must be like thirty times...

    Please get it right--

    "Say, Jim, whoo!"

    "Excuse me."

    "That's a bad outfit!"

    --I'm Jim.

    Thankfully, it's not a problem to find this material. So for me it's like the pre-Crisis comics never ended. And I'll never have enough time to get to it all. I'm like Burgess Meredith on THE...
  7. What I got from watching the Snyder Cut is that...

    What I got from watching the Snyder Cut is that Superman is returned from the dead using some technology that's a combo of Kryptonian and New Gods. So right there, that's a good reason for him to be...

    Well, I have a lot of time on my hands. Or more accurately, instead of thinking about the stuff I should be thinking about, I spend far too much time thinking about super-heroes. And when I do, it...
  9. Prior to Crisis, he was the strongest. Not as...

    Prior to Crisis, he was the strongest. Not as powerful as the Spectre--but then who is--the Spectre is the hand of God so really it's God who is the strongest, and the Spectre is just a hand-puppet....

    Up until BATMAN 198 [G-43] (February-March 1968), a giant which reprinted his origin story from 1948, and then BATMAN 200 (March 1968) which had a new retelling, Bruce's tragic origin story wasn't...

    Man alive! There was a T.V. program called MAN ALIVE in Canada from the 1960s to 2000, which was about faith (but not one of your religious programs)--the series took its title from a poem by a 2nd...
  12. Since you invoked my name, I guess I have to...

    Since you invoked my name, I guess I have to think up an answer. I don't believe any of them were that fast relative to later powers. But I know that Superman and Flash were both fast enough to...

    I realize you're just being funny ;), but the racist egg was when she was still at full strength and under Robert Kanigher, Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. The Modesty Blaise style Diana Prince began...

    I think the supernatural heroes are even more restricted than the science based ones. In fiction, it always seems like there's consequences for every magic act and sometimes it's better not to do...

    While they had some success with their horror/supernatural/mature comics in the 1980s, I feel like they were on the next level by the early 1990s with many titles in that area--what would eventually...

    If not Superman, then who? Someone has to be the top super-hero. Who else should it be?

    April 18th is the date ACTION was registered with the Library of Congress, not the date it went on sale.

    I'd rather think that Superman was born on that fateful night when Jerry Siegel thought him...

    Yep. I just went off on a tangent. I assume we all know the D.C. stuff, so I didn't get much into all that.

    Another important creation that I stupidly missed--but I added to the above list now--is...

    I think the thing that's against D.C. in its...

    I think the thing that's against D.C. in its later decades is that it was always number 2. And Marvel was number 1. However, it beat Marvel/Atlas/Timely in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s--it wasn't even...
  20. I think the most thankless job was being an...

    I think the most thankless job was being an Editor-in-Chief at Marvel Comics. It seems to me like every guy who had the post got bad-mouthed by the people who had to work for him. This is probably...

    Actually, I tried to put them in chronological order, so they wouldn't be "all over the calendar." But no, I didn't have some grand thesis in mind. MajorHoy's post reminded me that it wasn't actually...

    For sheer output, maybe Paul S. Newman.

    But among my personal favourites, it's hard to say. As soon as I think of one, then I think of another just as important to me.

    Most of the writers I love are dead. I guess the only ones left that I'd like to see return are Cary Bates, Elliot S! Maggin and Bob Rozakis. They should have a ticker-tape parade and give them the...

    National Allied which would later be Detective Comics, Inc., started in January of 1935. So really their decades should start on the 5s--1935 - 1944, 1945 - 1954, 1955 - 1964, etc. I'm a pedant.

    I took it as who was considered the greatest at the time. And by that, I mean not who I think really was the greatest, but just who fandom in general thought was the greatest.

    If you ask me who I...
