    I am not interested in the DKR Millerverse, and haven't really followed much of it since the original DKR, but this seems to be so out there like I would expect an AU to do that I may check it out.

    IMO, most creators don't mix Superman and normy human heroes very well. But yeah, the whole "prep time" and "Batgod" concepts are frustrating, especially when they're repeated as gospel by fans on...

    I'm just cutting off the argument that taking something away from Superman is either barely or not at all mitigated by keeping the story element within the family.

    I guess it's better than making...

    Well, on the one hand, it's not like I ever luved Superman's LoSH stories. For a long time, I liked Byrne's simplification of Superman's youth, and embraced the lack of Superboy shenanigans. So...

    I'm being super-cynical here, so consider yourself warned.

    The problem I generally have with using real-world politicians is that when the real politician is featured, usually it's either because...

    I'm trying to find a medium that reliably looks at issues from every angle without resorting to name-calling, ad hominems, strawmen, etc..

    Yeah, I'd be okay with the growing pains, but it has to be give and take. Certain things he's going to do well, yet other areas he'll need experience. I just don't want it to be a series of failures...

    I like it. I would just add two guidelines:

    1) He's good at it, and is politically savvy, not some "naive farmboy" who could be easily manipulated.

    2) He actually HATES the job. A nerve was...

    Technically, Batman was right. He said nobody could've survived that explosion, not even Darkseid. Then Superman said that Batman isn't always right.

    As it turned out, Batman was right, and that...

    I did a search for the script of the last JLU episode to see if I was remembering the dialogue correctly. I'm a bit off, but here's a copy/paste:



    So I guess it's a little subjective on whether...

    Don't forget in the S2 opener, Superman completely whoops Darkseid. That was their final confrontation before Darkseid's resurrection, so Darkseid either lied or forgot about getting humbled in that...

    Much of liking of Byrne's run is nostalgia. I was only 8 or so when it came out and wasn't collecting comics, and as such I collected the Byrne run much after the fact. However, it was nice as a...

    Personally, I think the whole Omega-dodging was just Bruce Timm being Bruce Timm and needlessly pumping up Batman's coolness. However, to make that scene less irritating, I recall that in a previous...

    I'm so over the Joker as a Superman villain.

    I'm so over the Joker as a Superman villain.

    LOL, I had to step back and think about it myself. So, let's consult the dictionary.



    I guess if you're hiring a creator because his name alone brings in fans and you are not at all concerned...
  16. I understand their point, but don't entirely...

    I understand their point, but don't entirely agree.

    Even if the outcome is a foregone conclusion, I think audiences don't want everything to seem trivial. For instance, you know Rocky is going to...

    I also think going back in time was just the old comic book trick of flying FTL, but the pop culture joke is usually focused more on reversing the Earth's rotation.

    I also think that for every...

    I'm still convinced New 52 Superman was a safeguard against losing the Toberoff lawsuits. As it became more clear they weren't going to lose, they were ready to phase back to many of the...

    I think regular comic customers are not as put off by massive power levels. The run-of-the-mill moviegoer, on the other hand, might not be so enthralled to see it. I think there's a reason Feige et...

    Does Feige get to work with Disney, or does he get to work with Warner Bros? Disney's marketing machine works wonders... :)

    Somewhat related to Jim Kelly's point, Batman has had more good runs than Superman in large part because top writers tick with Batman more than they stick to Superman? Why? Maybe they like Batman...
  22. I don't think people were strongly invested in...

    I don't think people were strongly invested in Pepper and Tony in 2008, but by 2019 they were staples of the MCU that people were going to miss her if Tony "moved on," which seemed like a possibility...

    Which is what I was suggesting. He would know her professionally, and then personally, and then even more intimately. Just don't rush it like MoS.
  24. Yeah, I think that's why the marketing sucked....

    Yeah, I think that's why the marketing sucked. They saw the movie was a loser and weren't going to polish a turd.

    As for the Batman bit, don't challenge the WB guys. Like Liefeld tweeted, "Thank...

    I'm actually somewhat glad to see that JL was a commercial flop, but I fear that someone in WB is thinking the reason it didn't do well was because it didn't feature Batman more... But I would guess...
