    I suppose in some way it goes back to Bruce Wayne's childhood vow to spend the rest of his life "warring on all criminals". A lot of people, and a lot of creators in particular, feel that should be...

    Funnily enough, it serves the opposite purpose now. If you see Batman in a suit with the yellow oval, you know its set in the past, during a more 'classic' era. Its the Year One suit which is now...

    I've always felt that the Earth 2 Superman was closer to the 'Clark Kent' end of the spectrum than his Earth 1 counterpart was.

    He grew up being totally unaware of his alien origins. In fact, I...
  4. How much does the "mainstream" version of a character really matter anymore?

    This applies to both DC and Marvel, though with Marvel more aggresively pushing synergy between the various medias anyway, I guess its a little more pertinent to DC.

    My question is basically - to...

    I loved the issue!

    I was initially a little skepticle about this series diving back into Smallville because I was kinda expecting this to be a 'Year One' akin to Batman's - about Clark's first...

    It'd be interesting to see them compare notes.

    616 Peter went through a lot of the shit that LF Peter went through in a relatively short span of time. But he's had to face fewer lasting...

    I think Batman simply represents the times we live in, and our true aspirations, better than Superman does.

    Not many people, if any, dream about having God-like powers, but using them not for...

    Pretty high, IMO.

    My pet theory about the last issue is that this verse briefly gets caught up in Spider-Verse, and this Peter meets 616 Peter, and possibly other alternate versions of Spider-Man,...

    So Grant Morrison I think once made this statement that the night after Batman first took down criminals, Bruce Wayne probably had the most peaceful sleep of his life since his parents died.

    I can...

    For anyone who became a fan in the Post-COIE era and beyond, the thought of Alfred not being Bruce's closest confidant and father-figure who's known him since he was a child is almost unthinkable....

    Venditti, in an interview, expressed an interest in doing more stories exploring past lives of Hawkman. So I'd love to see more one and two-parters along those lines.

    I mean, yeah, so far they have kept it fairly vague, and its worked. But then again, they haven't really needed to draw upon past Hawkman continuity so far - beyond the reincarnation backstory of...

    Well...that sure was a twisty issue. Not as much as the 70's one...but close enough!

    So I actually believed that the Peter we'd been following WAS the clone and 'Ben' was the real Peter! It would...

    How does his parents being dead necessarily give him 'meaningful internal conflict', as you put it? And how does their being alive take away from any 'meaningful internal conflict' he might have?

    You've got it perfectly! Especially the bit about adaptations and other versions.

    Consider the Nolanverse. Bruce Wayne actually has an arc there, with a beginning, middle and end. He creates the...

    Funnily enough, the idea for Batman Inc germinates with a direct call-back to Year One...when Bruce realizes that he's never been alone, since there's always been someone to help him right from the...

    So, the Justice League are going to be meeting the Golden Age JSA soon, and it does look like that includes the Golden Age Hawkman.

    Wonder how that fits into the Hawkman mythos that Venditti has...

    That shouldn't be too hard.

    At some point early in Diana's career as Wonder Woman (probably pre-Justice League) she is thrown back in time somehow, due to some battle with a villain or an...

    I haven't read Metal yet, so I may be wrong about this, but at this point, I'm not sure if Shiera i.e. the Golden Age incarnation of Hawkgirl, exists in Rebirth continuity.

    Kendra does, but does...

    That's the million dollar question!

    I don't think Hawkman's Rebirth history has been fully clarified yet. Venditti has done a great job expanding on his mythos and giving him a new origin that...

    Since around a year from now, we'll be getting a movie about Wonder Woman set in the year 1984 and called Wonder Woman 1984, what I'm curious to know is - what was Wonder Woman up to in the comics...

    I thought it was a brilliant concept. Yes, at its heart, it was a pretty vanilla idealistic "war is evil, give peace a chance" story, but the reincarnation...
