    And? It doesn't matter why Clark has been written this way. This is the way he's usually been characterized for eight decades across multiple versions and continuities and adaptations. Therefore,...

    True, but the religious elements are still there. But like me and JAK said, just because they're there doesn't mean you have to feed them.

    You got it all wrong actually. I used to think Clark would be a great father and I started out as a hardcore post-Crisis fan. That's the era I came up with, the Death-Return triangle era was my first...

    Oh, Smash is absolutely worth getting. If you like the Golden Age or the Fleischer cartoons it's a total, complete must-have story (so far anyway). Don't even wait for the trade, grab the single...

    The religion parallels are impossible to avoid; they're baked into the character from the ground up. His origin is just a cosmic version of Moses; his mission is just a cosmic version of jesus' and...

    Not really. In Convergence we get to see Clark about to have a kid. L&C jumps forward ten years, and all the changes and adjustments Clark would have gone through as a father have already happened....

    Not the first time Didio has done/allowed stuff like this though. It's true he's not fond of legacy characters but he let Clark be replaced during New Krypton, Bruce has been replaced a couple times...

    DC's approach in the last few years seems to be a combination of pre-Crisis and post-Crisis. Even Tomasi, as heavy handed with the family stuff as he was, pulled from some concepts and traits we'd...

    :D My understanding of this character is built on many years of reading from all eras. I am thorough in my literary analysis.

    If I applied this much effort to school I'd have a 4.0 GPA. :p

    Yeah, that's how I felt in Rebirth when a guy who had spent almost a century struggling to connect to family was suddenly written, out of nowhere, as the perfect, flawless dad.

    I think that's a fair reading of modern day post-52 Ollie. But looking at the earlier, post-Crisis Ollie I think Tzigone has the right of it. I'd say from at least Hard Traveling Heroes, if not...

    Well, what other Bendis books in recent years have sold that well just on his name recognition? Seriously asking, because I have no idea.

    Years back yeah, his name was enough to carry a book....

    I'm in total agreement here.

    Man, who ever thought that we'd be talking about a Bendis book and saying "it's moving too fast!"? :D

    But you're right, a lot of stuff has been rushed and I think...

    Yes he can sleep, and does dream. This was actually a talking point back in the....Dominus story, I think? Clark *can* sleep, but technically he doesn't *have* to. He can survive without it. But if...

    The Bat family wins this whole thing, hands down. It's strongly slanted in the Bats' favor. The Bat family has been a part of the mythos since virtually the beginning; an ever growing clan that get...

    If DC was expecting Bendis to sell like he did over a decade ago, they were fooling themselves and deserve to get burned. Bendis hasn't been as big a power player as he used to be, and as much as...

    If the only Superman someone knows is the post-Crisis/Rebirth version, they don't know the character, just one small facet of him. If you read stuff from other eras, you'll see how...

    That looks pretty good if you ask me. No way the Legion outsells the mutants or Bat, especially with the effort Marvel has put in with Hickman's run. Hitting #4 is pretty damn impressive for this IP.

    I'd hope so. The book is clearly built for that kind of format and audience. But it's DC, so I never just assume they make the smart business choice.

    Diana's been a political character since her inception. Take that out and she's not Wonder Woman anymore. And I honestly find anyone's desire to do that to Diana incredibly misplaced. She has always...
