    It sounds pretty contrived to me. I'd rather they just went with the obvious and put people like Damian or the current Kid Flash in the roles rather than trying to create new legacies.

    This is retroactively restored as Kara's name that she uses on Earth. So my direction is back to where she started- as Linda Lee Danvers with the brown hair/wig who is secretly Supergirl.

    It depends on how interested any female Legionnaire was in a doomed romance. They knew from history who Superboy would eventually marry. Laurel Kent all but names the choice as Lois.

    So since...

    See, to me Superman is the main character in the story so if it's a "how dumb is Lois" vs "How can anyone fall for that disguise", my preference is on making the identity more secure. Clark works...

    I'd make Captain Atom into his 1960's self with some of the 1980's set-up but re-imagined for the 2020's. It sounds more pretentious that I intend- bit that's the one line summary

    Have to go with the Arrowverse since outside of Wonder Woman, no one in the DCEU League is likable. Barry is annoying and clueless. Bruce is an arrogant ass. Just going by his use in Justice...

    I don't know. I find the Fleischer struggling a bit boring. The story beats are always the hero is knocked back on his feet and then puts his back into it and triumphs. A challenge isn't really a...

    But where is the line between "evil incarnate" and "still has good in him". If you try to keep his good deeds as "shock value" then it comes off as a plot trick rather than characterization. Stuff...

    Just take JMS' approach from Supreme Power

    Jonathan and Martha were government operatives chosen to raise Kal-El. The residents of Smallville were observers.

    Hell, even Lois was recruited by...

    Alan Moore's Miracleman was a reconstruction of Captain Marvel and superheroes. Moore may or may not have understood Captain Marvel as a concept. And the comic he produced, while a masterpiece, is...

    I'm not as sure about that. I think sometimes that people focus on the window dressing (time period, costume appearance, living/dead Kents) and not on the Superman himself in making those...

    Clark isn't Bruce. He isn't meant to be defined by misery and alienation. An angsty teen-ge Clark in a world with no other heroes might have moments where he feels isolated by his unique abilities,...

    I think part of the problem is that Superman the Movie was a product of the 1970's. It reflects an America (in Metropolis) that has just lost it's first war (Vietnam), had faith in government...

    Superman: My tweak kind of butterflies a lot including the later movies, but play Lex seriously. No bumbling sidekick Otis. No wacky plan involving real estate.

    I liked the character as its own thing, but it certainly wouldn't scratch my itch if i was in the mood for a Superman story. Lee created an interesting character, but Marvel's Hyperion, Sentry or...

    See Korath's reply to Nelliebly. Since the thread is asking for stuff that hasn't changed- someone is going to argue that as soon as a Superman run downplays or removes an element it becomes...

    Part of the problem for me is that any list of traits is either incomplete, adds in stuff that at the end of the day isn't essential, or has some type of gap in the last 80+ years.

    For example...

    I for one applaud the death of Melody Moore. Bendis killed off a character he had fleshed out. All of the people posting about how much of an impact she could have made in future stories- that's...

    Am I the only one that noticed how Jim Lee kept referring to Batman not Superman when giving the history of DC comics. Publishing for 85 years (1935) and 80 years for Batman. That for me was the...

    I thought the darkish, edgy, cool sidekick role was Lois. At least that was the impression her last miniseries seemed to be aiming for,

    I get why you went the direction you did. I'm saying if you are hired after a reboot to create a DC Universe and you come up with largely the same DCU we have, then what was the point of the reboot?...

    I think the point is that a story from 1992 would have President Bill Clinton, but if you did a flashback today it would have President Obama and in a few years it would be Trump. The same way...

    The problem with that is - why create a new DCU just to re-arrange the same set pieces.

    If your Batman history needs to fit in Dick, Jason, Tim, Stephanie, Damian ... then why not just keep the...

    They tried the future tech Metropolis during the Brainiac-13 era. It was underwhelming. Too many details for both writers and artists to keep track of.

    Plus if the average Joe has tech a...

    You could make each season really short (4-6 episodes) and focus on a single world per season. But release the seasons two or three times a year.

    One idea is to just remake the original pilot. ...
