    Some great analysis in here.

    One thing I can maybe contribute is that the notion of whether superheroes are righteous vs oppressive is whether the social order that surrounds them is seen as...

    Broadly speaking, I'd go with generic large-scale invasions of Earth. It just feels so played out. I can only see spaceships floating in the sky so many times. A good story can probably use that...

    The first movie was way overstuffed, so it's a good point, but because all the mythology is out of the way, it allows for more intimate world-building and supporting cast.. Lin is great but I was...

    The thing with Atlantis is that you can have multiple pupils in the school of sorcery and have it feel organic, unlike having 5 robins around that each have to take a consecutive turn. I'm fine with...

    I could live the rest of my life without reading another story about a hero turning evil. But I think to categorically dismiss the idea denies the potential. Perhaps that's a value related to how we...

    Its quality shows across eras and is apparent even to those averse to that kind of story, I would say. I hope you enjoy it.

    I'm curious exactly how controversial it is both inside and outside of GL fandom, but I found Hal's journey into villainy quite compelling. The source of his grief and conflict with the corps - the...

    It's a good point. Even just creating these concepts and expanding on them like he did is something special the others can't fully claim.

    This problem largely goes away when the character has to solve problems more complex than a fist fight.

    Summer 2021 seems so long from now. I say keep the date and release it on HBO max in January. (Going by gut rather than any kind of knowledge/expertise)

    Definitely.

    I would personally prefer the realism of the Arkham character designs, as I'm not a fan of the mainstream CGI kids' movie style where characters have such exaggerated features.

    I agree with those saying that the hero's character and struggles takes priority; I think that's where the best villains come from. Joker tests Batman's moral logic like no one else, Lex questions...

    I think you're right. I don't think it's a rule that had to do with the original success of the genre, but it has clearly transformed and sustained the life of a variety of heroes.

    If you look at...

    Yeah, it has to be the 2010's. Some great stories if we were to select the cream of the crop, but thare are too many problems across the board. I've also lost my excitement for reading new comics.

    I used to imagine that I'd show up with a bang and scare the world into meeting every social goal with a warning, but it would probably be too distorting and lead to unsustainable changes.

    I'd be open to it. It fits better with the other Greek figures, though maybe there is something to be said about having a tether to the Judeo-Christian tradition? But maybe not.

    I think it's a cool pitch, though I wonder what the character arc is for Bruce. No doubt the concept itself is a great use of Batman's dark elements.
