    Rex the Wonder Dog and Detective Chimp would like a word with you. Not to mention Solovar.

    I can't speak to the response to Crisis, but as for Hal going bad, the internet was a thing back then. Emerald Twilight and its fallout received plenty of hate and vitriol. So did the JSA's treatment...

    Right there with you, though I was a young adult in the 90s, but that's when I first got into comics, when Tim was Robin. So my intro to the Bat-books included Chuck Dixon's Robin comics of that...

    I haven't read very much of the silver age stuff. I became a Flash fan while Wally West was Flash, so that's the series I know.

    So apparently, I missed something. What's up with Tony Isabella and Black Lightning? I know he created the character, but why is he criticized so much? I'm currently rereading my old comics, and I...

    I was beginning to wonder if anything in this thread would be truly controversial. Between this and the people liking the Batman and Robin movie, this thread is finally living up to its title.

    Separating Vertigo out into its own thing in the 90s was a great idea. Sandman, Hellblazer, Books of Magic, etc can easily interact with each other, but are better off not being in the main DC...
