    It's a byproduct of the hero's history in the real world.

    When Superman first appeared he was a power fantasy for a lot of children. Kids don't think in rational terms and say that just because...

    Whether he was in the military or not, I'd prefer Sam was now living in Pittsdale and having a good life with Ella. Military personnel often retire early and then find other things to do.

    I guess it was so long between season 2 and season 3 that I forgot what was so egregious about Billy and only remembered the good stuff. To me he was good at being the typical bad boy from 1980s...

    If you're proposing that the term "bad art" is totally useless--because no two people can agree on what's bad--then I'd agree with that proposition. So let's stop calling it bad art, because such...

    If WONDER WOMAN 1984 was coming out sooner, as it was supposed to, then BIRDS OF PREY would be a non-issue for me. It's only because of WW84's timing that I care, since I don't want to see that movie...

    That "sweetcorn" confuses me, because corn isn't exactly sweet.

    In Canada, we have a mix of American and British words and (officially) we mostly use British spelling, which I tend to prefer....

    I don't want to spoil a key plot detail, but there's something involving Black Mask that's hard to see how they could make it work. And these things are delicate. You never know how they're going to...

    I know Margot Robbie is a star, but she's not a writer or a director. The movie sounds like a vanity project--which sometimes is worth the gamble because even if such movies don't do well, it's worth...

    If you read the 1939 stories--edited by Vin Sullivan--there's a very different feel to the comics than when Robin shows up and Whitney Ellsworth is editor. This primordial Batman, the creature of the...

    I'd have to study some Greg Land comics to see how he's adapting the photos for comics, but there was a great old Superman story where an artist explains to a gang of thugs that you can't just trace...

    What about women who were crooks that turned good, like Molly Mayne aka Harlequin and Selena Kyle aka Catwoman, in the 1940s?

    There was Batgirl (Babs) in the 1960s yes, but there was also Bat-Girl...

    Split them off into their own imprint and keep all the continuity from Earth-One intact. Meanwhile have another imprint that actually reboots the whole universe from scratch.

    THE NEW TEEN TITANS was probably a strong argument for the Crisis--in the interest of trying to change all of the DC Universe so it could be on the same level as the Titans--and it's definitely the...

    I'd rather have a universe that was based in the 1940s comics. I can see why this makes problems for other super-heroes that have large supporting casts of regular mortals--which means they either...

    That THE KILLING JOKE is called a classic makes me feel old. That comic just came out not too long ago, didn't it?

    ACTION and DETECTIVE turning 1000 makes me feel old. I remember when those comics...

    Pre-Crisis, on Earth-One, Pittsdale was probably further away from Metropolis than Smallville. It often seemed like Smallville was very close to Metropolis. Given the name Pittsdale, I'd assume that...

    Let's not forget that henna comes from North Africa and Asia Minor where it's been used for thousands of years not just for body art but also for dying the hair red.

    In the Schaffenberger days, Sam and Ella lived on a farm. Since most every farm had at least one horse (in the old days), they must have had one or more horses.

    Can't believe that was the 50th issue of NEW TEEN TITANS and they couldn't get Romeo Tanghal to ink it. Had to settle for Mike DeCarlo--yikes.
