    The original Excalibur weren't magic spe******ts, though. They were a regular superhero team during a time when superheroes used to by and large be generalists more than spe******ts. If anything,...

    Looks to me like Bambi: A Life in the Woods was copyrighted in the U.S. in 1926 but published in 1928. So, tricky stuff.

    Also, Winnie-the-Pooh will likely be a tricky one. He's one of those...

    Given how popular those types of characters were during that time period, that was probably typical '90s kid reasoning.

    Here's the opinion: This franchise. It's just . . . too much.

    It's too big and I've gotten too out-of-step with it. I've taken to reading titles that have favorite characters in them even when...

    Happy Public Domain Day! Woo! We've got Gatsby in there! Also, some Wodehouse, Agatha Christie and Oz. Also, glad to see more Doctor Dolittle entering the public domain. That's one of those...

    Why continue the show and have to pay the writers and directors when you can just profit off of the show's surprisingly good Disney+ traffic.

    Sorry. Just thinking like an executive there for a...

    It's half the Blue team but put in a really weird situation. Like, why are they the ones dealing with magic? Heck, why is X-Factor acting like they're spe******ts in it? They never seemed to know...

    It seems that almost no one has figured out how to develop Sunfire into a character who isn't just 40% national pride, 30% arrogance and 30% anger or they don't want to. That's probably why he isn't...
  9. Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, Fantastic Four,...

    Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Silver Surfer and yes, even Avengers. I'm one of the few people who actually liked the Avengers cartoon. But it was unusually geared...

    And expectations . . . don't apply to Marvel.

    I mean, I'm still attached to versions of Marvel characters from '90s cartoons.

    They didn't create one from scratch. They just had Skyman go as Starman instead to streamline the whole legacy thing a bit.

    I'm going to echo everyone's idea of not starting off with Doom. But what I'd also like to suggest is that they go somewhere cool. The FF in the comics are always going places like The Negative...

    The funny thing about the original plan is that it wasn't even some obscure thing that only the writer and editor knew. They put it on the frickin' trading cards. Ther text on the back of the...

    What confuses me is that I thought they were going in the direction of Penance being her own person way back in Faerber's Generation X run. But now we're back to her being a shell.

    Mainstream superhero creators make such a big deal about aging characters too much and then they stick these young characters in a role supervising other teenagers. The teacher role really calls for...

    Refrax isn't Budget Cyclops. He's Budget Chamber. Buff and Refrax were the "Good Girl and Bad Boy" teen archetypes in the movie like Husk and Chamber were in the comic, albeit played differently. ...

    Well, we kind of have an example from within DC continuity: Kon-El. Superboy was more or less designed to be like a young Superman if he didn't have the Kents to raise him and sand off his rougher...

    The one I’m looking forward to is Taro. It’s supposed to be the “fairy tale” Ultraman. And I’m a sucker for fairy tales, especially Japanese ones.

    I was using the Pluto TV app on my Roku.
