    I'm also going to vote for Dr. Fate's full-helment adventures, including his All-Star Comics #3 story. There was an awesome Lovecraftian edge to those stories. I don't recall the issue, but the story...

    Thomas was at a bit of a handicap because supervillains had a tendency to be a bit sparse back in 1942. Heroes normally beat up on more ordinary gangsters and the like in those days. His roster of...

    At some point, somebody will once again say "let's start everything from day one to attract new readers and freshen up old brands." Whether that will be through an Ultimate revival, or some new...

    Yeah, Firestorm had the publishing credit to join at the time, more so than RT. I agree with you about Vixen. While she lacked stature at the time of joining the Detroit League, she was clearly...

    Apples and oranges IMO. The story behind 300 gave us an origin for Odin that had to be undone later, but it was probably the more epic.

    The Usual Suspects are unsurprising this time around, but I can see why I was taken to the woodshed for omitting BC and PG, and Hawkman seems to be making a better showing.

    I didn't see an option I prefer. I prefer them as they were created, as mutants, but haven't liked the Magneto connection from the get-go. It's one of those many things - like everybody in the...
  12. Poll: Who are the essential members of the JSA? (Round 2)

    A few flaws were found in the poll I started a while back, so let's try that again. This time, I've dropped all the characters from the bottom quartile of the initial poll, to make room for some of...

    Side note, if I had to pick a definitive X-story, I'd probably selected "Days of Future Past." TDPS certainly brought change and impact to the X-Men, but DoFP really reshaped the book's entire...

    Byrne's run is imperfect. That said, it's the best FF anybody acheived since Kirby and Lee's heyday. He understood the synchronisity of family, sci-fi, and adventure at the title's heart.

    All the most obvious answers are taken. I'm going to propose an honorable mention: Ultimate Vision.

    If we look at the elements of TDPS, they include:
