  1. When did Bendis state that his Superman was...

    When did Bendis state that his Superman was specifically pre-Crisis? In all the many Word Balloon interviews he's done, Bendis has been pretty clear that his Superman is pulling from all eras of the...

    I think a part of him certainly is mild-mannered. The over-the-top clumsiness is a deception, definitely, but even that is grounded in his real feelings of being physically awkward in his youth due...

    I enjoyed this a lot, but I gotta say the reveal of Leviathan felt somewhat like a cheat, despite all the clues they'd been dropping that it was Manhunter-related, because Bendis simply didn't put in...
  4. Both Clark and Superman are his real selves. He's...

    Both Clark and Superman are his real selves. He's both. It's not an either/or situation.

    He is Clark Kent of Smallville, who was raised by Jonathan & Martha Kent in Kansas to embrace Truth,...

    I don't think the shirt rip is going anywhere. I mean, why would Clark decide to wear his Superman costume 24/7? He's still going to be dressed in his regular clothes when he's not doing Superman...

    It's an interesting tweak that makes sense given Thawne's MO. It's the kind of additive retcon that I enjoy a lot more than the "that story didn't happen anymore, but this one did" kind of retcon.

    Again, if it doesn't work, they'll be able to hand wave this all away quicker than you can say Blue Nudist Mxy, so what's the harm in trying something new and different?
  8. Why can't you apply hope and optimism to...

    Why can't you apply hope and optimism to everything? I must have missed when that rule was established ;)
  9. The secret identity isn't being retconned out of...

    The secret identity isn't being retconned out of his history, it's just being moved past in the current stories. Much like Clark revealing himself to Lois, it's an opportunity to tell new stories. It...

    I don't think the main impetus behind getting rid of the secret identity is that it's implausible. The idea has always been ridiculous. The whole point of this is that, at this point in his life,...

    Cocaine's a helluva drug.

    Although, to be fair, I'm sure Frank Miller was wacked out of his mind on more drugs than just cocaine when he went completely off the rails ;)
  12. I'm interested in seeing what kind of new stories...

    I'm interested in seeing what kind of new stories come out of this. If it doesn't work or pay off in an interesting way, it's comic books, there's dozens of ways to put things back to the classic...

    I really dug this. I read it with one of my students who had absolutely no idea who the Legion of Super-Heroes were and it worked just great for the pair of us.

    If I wasn't already buying Young Justice and I picked up the latest issue because Naomi is featured so prominently on the cover, I'd feel mighty pissed ;)

    I'd love to see a fan edit of Smallville that trims it down to the good bits, because there was a lot of mediocrity padding out those ten seasons.
  16. Sure, if this particular version of Superman...

    Sure, if this particular version of Superman isn't your cup of tea, that's fine. However, if there's some good word of mouth, I think you should at least check out the pilot to see if they've managed...
  17. To be fair, I don't think that's always possible...

    To be fair, I don't think that's always possible when you factor in last-minute or unforeseen production problems like injuries, weather, location rescheduling, problems with the actors or crew, and...
  18. Pulling off Superman in any medium is always a...

    Pulling off Superman in any medium is always a tricky thing. He's not an easy character to get right. It's entirely possible this show won't be any good, but I don't see much point in kvetching this...

    Hope and optimism aren't exclusive. You can apply that point of view to everything, particularly your entertainment, because that's what Superman is. He's a comic book character that's been adapted...

    There is a massive amount of market research done on their animated properties, which is why we have the DC Animated Movies. However, the revenue generated by those properties shows that the adult...

    If you've been fooled fifty-seven times, that's not really the CW's fault anymore ;) Seriously though, if the CW's approach isn't for you, that's perfectly valid. Just don't watch their shows, or...
  22. You're welcome to view this show with cynicism,...

    You're welcome to view this show with cynicism, but I think automatically assuming the worst isn't a particularly great way to approach Superman, whose entire shtick is about hope and optimism. Yes,...

    Because an animated Superman series would be viewed by the studio as skewing towards a much younger audience, who might not be interested in the adventures of Superman & Lois as new parents. The very...

    This was a real mixed bag. There was some great stuff in here and some truly bad stuff, too. Can't say I'd really recommend this to anyone. It's an interesting failure though, mostly buoyed by the...

    This is gorgeous. Who's the artist? It looks like Cully Hamner, who always drew a great Hal.
