    Editors haven't been keepers of continuity for a long time, that's a vestige from when new and old stories weren't readily available for a writer to look through when they wanted to check something....
  2. Roy Thomas and Julie Schwartz had about ten years...

    Roy Thomas and Julie Schwartz had about ten years of published material and not even half the number of titles that we have now to keep track of though, it's an unfair comparison.
  3. Honestly, why bother? I like tight continuity as...

    Honestly, why bother? I like tight continuity as an idea, but writers won't be able to keep up with it and we'll just be back where we started. Things always turn into "anything the writer says...
  4. I liked #75, King put a familiar concept to good...

    I liked #75, King put a familiar concept to good use. Daniel is not to my taste at all though, the pages pencilled and colored by Gerards was in a different class. I just hope the solution won't...
  5. I thought it was pretty good. The pacing wasn't...

    I thought it was pretty good. The pacing wasn't great and the script sometimes felt a bit too kid-focused with meaningless action crammed in too often, but Hush is still a good hook for a mystery...
  6. I wouldn't pay too much heed to comic book...

    I wouldn't pay too much heed to comic book professionals either in this case, they wouldn't badmouth something from the parent company that writes their checks. Case in point, Dan Slott gushing over...
  7. That's not what I meant at all, just that the...

    That's not what I meant at all, just that the buzz in the leadup for the movie was terrible among both critics and "on the internet". It looked bad, was marketed badly, and turned out to be bad as...
  8. Test screenings are one thing, but as I remember...

    Test screenings are one thing, but as I remember it the general tone on the internet about BvS before and during the run-up to that film was highly negative. People and critics had their knives out...
  9. I read up on the rumors. I don't think we'll have...

    I read up on the rumors. I don't think we'll have to worry about him being an offensive stereotype, but doing it via hints and vague suggestions rather than outright statement could be considered...

    I just noticed Bane is on the DVD/BD cover, which is interesting considering he's one of few A-list villains who does not appear in the original story (unless I'm misremembering).
  11. Where does this come from? It's the first I've...

    Where does this come from? It's the first I've heard of it. I'd be very surprised if he turned out to be an offensive stereotype, especially as those are far and few apart these days even in more...
  12. A version of Luthor's speech takes place in that...

    A version of Luthor's speech takes place in that run too, although it's made with the Legion of Doom and the consequences looks to be different.

    I was honestly a bit unclear about the nature of...
  13. It can still be something like what you mention...

    It can still be something like what you mention in your first paragraph, established comic book villains doesn't have to look or act like they would in the 60's show or Schumacher's films. Think...

    That's just the point, he's able to take a weak concept and do great work with it.
  15. Did anyone else read Byron Burton's and John...

    Did anyone else read Byron Burton's and John Ottman's proposed script for a Beast solo movie that "leaked" a few days ago? I honestly think it's pretty good, certainly for a first draft.

    Well, if Tom King and Geoff Johns can break into Hollywood, why not?
  17. DC hasn't really "cared" about continuity as such...

    DC hasn't really "cared" about continuity as such for several years now, the current practice seems to be "If a writer feels like referencing something it's in continuity, no retcon or explanation...
  18. The problem with re-occurring "meat and...

    The problem with re-occurring "meat and potatoes"-villains for Superman is that to be a threat to Superman they pretty much have to be a threat to at least the whole planet, which by default elevate...

    I read it as being a woman, and someone you were never supposed to know exactly who it was. Just one of many henchmen and bystanders getting caught in Batman's crossfire during the years.

    I don't think it's implausible for Joker to send henchmen out with specific instructions to buy certain clothes or order them from tailors or online. He's usually dressed quite "loudly", but...

    I don't understand that statement, what do you mean?
  22. ...which would be true regardless of who the...

    ...which would be true regardless of who the current writer was. Still, disregarding personal taste, Vision, Sheriff of Bagdad, Omega Men and Mister Miracle make Tom King one of the biggest names...

    As late as 2002, the Batman title was averaging around 50.000 issues sold each month and hovered around the mid top 30 sales list. Hush, and a few years later the Nolan Batman films, really brought...

    That's not real. No one writes dialogue that bad, certainly not James Gunn, and it has spelling errors.

    I at least hope this has a better ending than "Batman comes back and beats everyone up - THE END -"
