    That crossed my mind too but I think it's too literal. Everything about this fantasyland of Wanda's is metaphor and metacommentary and illusion. I think we have to look at what things represent more...

    So Wandavision hit, and I have to say I was not disappointed at all. Beneath all the ridiculousness and sit-com inspired over-acting is this unsettling and uncomfortable psychological tension, and I...

    I thought it was brilliant.

    Sure, some of the acting was over-done, especially in the first episode, but they're riffing on sit-coms and that's how we think of them. And the "creepy" moments are...

    For what it's worth I'm with you. I posted a more even minded opinion earlier and that's my "official" stance, but in all honesty.....I know Babs-as-Batgirl has its fans and I'm not trying to...

    Yeah, I think I agree.

    But really it's foolish as hell for us to act like we know more than we do about this book. For all we know, the first few issues take place in Bludhaven and the next arc...

    Yeah, the troupe is a little worn out, I know. I'm hoping that, in the execution, it could come off as "lovingly retro" instead of just "tired." If the writing is good, even the old troupes can still...

    This.

    Orion is one of the strongest, toughest beings in all of reality; a god who exists above and beyond the physical multiverse. Aquaman is a badass, but he's not on that level.

    It's kind of...

    I was thinking the same thing.

    In my head, Wally is still built like a linebacker, the way artists drew him in the 90's.

    But now he's drawn like a kid because DC views him as one. Secondary...

    Just as a very rough guesstimate I'd say the first 25-33% of the film should be on earth-2. We need to spend *some* time there to elicit a emotional response from the audience when it's destroyed. We...

    I dunno if I agree that big budget films and theaters are doomed. That joke from the Simpsons about how the global economy relies on big Avenger style films isn't quite as ridiculous as we might...

    For the foreseeable future, I don't want the West kids in costumes at all. We've got a lot of speedsters already who need a lot of TLC, and how the family fits together as a whole really needs a lot...

    I haven't read Future State, so I dunno if there's any good ideas there worth carrying over.

    I'm not actually fond of the idea of the NTT generation remaining together as Titans, and the issues...

    It's been tossed around some, but not much. Most of the time when I see it mentioned it's as a potential new home for the Titans, not for a single hero. I guess the shows aren't popular on CBR?

    I...

    I think "out grow" might be the wrong term.

    There was no real need, from a character standpoint, for Babs to outgrow the mantle; she wasn't a kid sidekick and being Batgirl wasn't especially tied...

    You're not wrong. But if someone with Clark's powers showed up, this would be what happens anyway. You could save all the cats from all the trees, make all the speeches about humanity driving...

    Years ago I would've agreed with you about the multiverse thing, but general audiences have become accustomed to alternate realities, different timelines, and so on. It's not the hurdle it used to...

    Jesse Quick and Wally were both Titans in the...early 00's, I guess? Seemed to work just fine.

    With speedsters, you do have the benefit of them applying their powers in different ways, and you...

    While I definitely think a hero's rogues gallery should be made up mostly of their own original foes who're created specifically to reinforce the hero's themes, personality, etc., I do think there's...

    Oh, I agree. If I actually had the power to make such changes I'd ultimately keep Clark in spandex (the Reborn suit if I could swing it; perfect update!) and Conner would keep the t-shirt. But I'll...

    At a guess? Flash already had a sidekick in Wally and for much of its history the IP wasn't popular enough to support a "girl variant" Lady Flash in the same way Clark and Bruce were able to support...

    At one point we did have a growing, flourishing setting, supporting cast, and rogues gallery. We look back on the original solo and Dixon era with a fair degree of scorn now, because the "Bat...

    I agree with Sacred and Alpha; the Future's End look, where the hair is longer but not "80's Metallica" long, plus the beard, is the best look. Hell, if we could get that look in the main canon,...
