    Though that very feature sold the basic point of The Equalizer. That he was a middle age man who seemed entirely harmless...and totally wasn't. Sorry Denzel, but after one million movies where you...

    Well, on TV. I was recalling the actual Conan Doyle story. But it was characteristic of Holmes, who did indeed indulge in the occasional boxing match, RDJ's Wing Chun notwithstanding. Baritsu too,...

    I think it's obvious that she really needs to have someone really distinguish her in some way from SG, and give her a real role both in the Superman Family that's distinct from SG and SM for that...

    There was a story where a huge, villianous doctor bent his fireplace poker into a U shape as a show of strength and intimidation. Holmes just unbent it with a single effort. He was not described as...

    The one Holmes movie I just couldn't get into was The Seven Percent Solution. I don't even know the reason, I just didn't like it. RDJ, sure. Dr. Strange, sure. Just not that one.

    While I like the idea of Earth 2 for PG and the others...in practice, I'm afraid you're right. She would just be shunted into obscurity by a DC that apparently already doesn't like her.

    Ah, yes, that was the name of the play. Watching "Howling Mad Murdoch" play the Edward Fox role was fun. Heston...was surprisingly not bad at all. Not even close to my ideal version of Holmes,...

    Nobody ever will. I recall that when I was a kid, my mother took me to see a play, with Charlton Heston as Holmes, Jeremy Brett as Watson (!), and Dwight Schultz. It was "The Sign of Four", and it...

    Well, I've long since come to the conclusion that being a Power Girl fan means enduring a certain amount of self delusion...now with respect to being optimistic...or at least hopeful...that DC will...

    John Wesley Hardin's autobiography. In modern terms, I'd describe him as a racist, psycho-serial killer, but he probably was the deadliest gunfighter in the old West, and a lawyer...though with...

    Me too actually. I hate the Harley as anti-hero because she's cute or something while doing horrible things. Better as an outright, unapologetic villain IMO. But it won't happen.

    Well, someone at DC got it once; it was a plot point in the final issue of the Power Girl solo. But as to indigenous people, I'm not sure what you want from them. AFAIK, there are likely hundreds...

    A) It isn't Wonder Woman. I don't know that many of the legions of WW fans who loved the movie will care about Wonder Girl, especially an entirely new version.

    Are there any ways DC might use apart from traditional floppies to put out PG solo stories, even in limited format? I mean that are appropriate to the character? And which might actually result in...

    Well, since PG has no truly memorable, to say nothing of great, stories, I'd say relying on writers to simply "get" her right isn't working. Also considering where she is right now. nowhere. But...

    This is true as well. Might be nice if DC used her for more than just testing out things to use later on iterations of SG.

    Not really; she's a pretty generic superhero, doesn't have any special mission or backstory, does the basic superhero thing on her own or with the JSA or the League. And simply being from another...

    IIRC, it was the lowest rated of the Arrowverse shows. Personally, I'd expect a Painkiller series, and for that matter Wondergirl to do worse. Meanwhile, I guess CW Justice League meetings are...

    My feeling on the OP is that you can tell good or great stories about uber powerful heroes, but they have to reflect that fact, and are usually more about things like the moral choices the hero makes...
