    Love Return. Great story of nostalgia-turned-nightmare, with a truly cathartic climax. Year One is also fantastic.

    Favorite single issue is probably this one:

    That's a great pitch and angle on the character. Would love to read more stories that emphasize those aspects.

    To add to the point that the Amazons are only vaguely Greek, in Greek Mythology the gods created humanity generally, which obviously goes beyond just white people, and there were Ethiopians and other...

    Hmm, that's a good question.

    The big guns have quite a few villains...but then again, there are plenty of B and C-list heroes who don't have many villains of their own. And those major characters...

    I think he's built up enough awareness in other mediums the that a strong push could be right around the corner. He was prominent in Scott Snyder's JL, it's not impossible to imagine someone coming...

    Both are fresh in my mind, I think they're great. Year One ranks up there as one of the best JL origins with great character work, even if it is a little drawn out. And Brave & the Bold is a...

    The New 52. I tried with Flash, which was okay at first, but it felt so empty without the rest of the Flash family, and weird with the dead mom stuff, and then the writing just fell off for me, so I...

    Glad this thread is here. I've only just watched the first 3 episodes on HBO Max so I might avoid the other posts for now, but I do enjoy it and like noticing lots of details specific to that time...

    Haven't watched yet, how are people liking this show? Is it more or less comparable to the other CW shows in strengths and weaknesses?

    She can still be one of the strongest beings in DC and bleed from heavy rounds without being seriously hurt. Head to head she's top tier based on her physical ability and skill, that doesn't mean her...

    Plenty of people here in New York would not call Rosie Perez black. Afro-Latin@s vary in shade and features, I don't see Perez as a vast departure, certainly not from any inconsistency in skin color.

    This is simply not the perspective of fans, as opposed to business entities. I'm not only concerned about whether it sells, I'm concerned about how we relate to these stories and characters, and who...

    That's a good point, but then she could just grab them with her bear hands like Superman so often does. The bracelets (to me at least) communicate a shielding.

    I agree with others that a...

    I think you'll find plenty of people of color, including myself, who legitimately prefer authentically diverse characters over race-swapped ones.

    I don't know if I'd really call Rosie Perez inconsistent with Renee in terms of racial category.

    This is an impressive way to incorporate both the JSA and the Crime Syndicate. I like it. It even has Flash of Two Worlds in there. A story with Mongul is cool, and connecting Diana to the Hawks'...

    You always say she's supposed to be as physically durable as a Kryptonian, but that's a subjective opinion.

    If she's completely bulletproof, she has less of a reason to defend herself against...

    I wouldn't want Diana to be fully bullet-proof; I like the suggestion that she still bleed, but not be fatally impacted (similar to Aquaman). I'm attached to the visual of her defending herself from...

    I agree with the bolded - but that's precisely what I think people are now incapable of imagining him doing in good faith: using his power to disrupt the status quo. Aside from Morrison's run, he's...

    Diana is up there, though I think she'd shine brightest if her Amazon sisters could come through. Bull-leaping, javelin contests, Dionysian dancing, an abundance of music and wine and fruit.
