    Yeah, I can see that, but that’s rarely been a problem for me.

    I mean, my other favorite Star Wars series*, the excellent Knights of the Old Republic comic series featuring Zayne Carrick, has a...

    Yeah, I think his respect for comics is known, it’s just that his taste is somewhat off-putting to people.

    I think MOS was a genuinely good Superman movie in part because he lucked into having...

    Pretty good collection overall.

    My favorites were the ones by Brubaker, Dini, and Dixon. Dixon’s still probably the best at writing Catwoman as an anti-heroine in a heist story, though Kelly Jones...

    I would say that’s accurate; MOS had a nuanced pace and a simple and clear focus. That focus and pace are what made MOS work better, even if you disagreed with its interpretations of the character...

    Sequel? Or prequels? Because arguably... they both had to deal with that.:D

    The Prequels had a known ending coming; they were judged largely on their execution (debatable but tolerable in TPM, bad...

    My “blind taste-test” measure of this is whether or not a description of it is just one move away from the point where literally no one could tell what it was originally.

    For instance, if you...

    If you want just sheer lore-work... than Wookieepedia is the way to go: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Main_Page

    It basically contains all Star Wars articles, even those of dubious or former...

    Johns‘s TT run is the ultimate “monkey’s paw” in terms of impact.

    It was set-horribly by the abysmal Graduation Day story because the starting pints he and DC envisioned for the characters...

    Vulcan philosophy would theoretically align more with Jedi teaching about detachment and service... but Vulcans can be just as arrogant or emotional as Romulans, and vice-versa; there’s been more...

    Yeah, I didn’t think there was any specific incident or meet-up point... unless it was an element of her first introduction as a Helena Bertinelli instead of Helena Wayne.

    Anyway, I found the...

    For me, the biggest liability for Superman in the comics is that, somehow, someway, just about every modern era has some out-sized inferiority in one or two areas compared to the others - which was...

    I think part of the issue is that he and others lost control of the narrative, and when that combined with a lack of staying power occurred, the protest ultimately became negated in effectiveness....

    I don’t remember it either, but doesn’t Freeze’s NML appearances come from early enough after the Heart Of Ice reintroduction that he was still kind of “new” in lining up with the now recognizable...

    Subjectivity is rife in this topic, regardless.

    But I think the “expectations” argument relies on one thing: having some element of a repeating “franchise” history. That can be anything from an...

    Stuff’s happening for a lot of people... but it has extreme limitations for the Original Trilogy leads that gets capped off in the Sequel Trilogy in a way that’s hard to tie as a satisfactory cap to...

    I’d say you need Rey and Luke to bond... and you need to treat Kylo killing Han as a genuine point-of-no-retrun. Kylo getting any sympathy after that when Rey isn’t a Skywalker pretty much...

    Dini gave him a prosthetic/grappling-hook-handed alias named Lefty Knox, who got found out by Doctor Aesop when he spoiled one too many heists as lookout.

    Bruce maintaining multiple aliases with...

    I think the larger shift from the “inoffensive, good-hearted occasional dork (in a good way)” to “the boring dude” pretty much has to be tied to the one-two punch of both his return with Infinite...

    And yet they’d already done it again, with Kylo.

    And it had worked in TFA with Kylo because they “remixed” the formula - TFA had Kylo positioned as the inverse of Vader, as a self-interested son...

    It had two major Ada vantages over Dang’s last minute heel turn: it *was* set-up more and the ramifications were addressed more thoroughly, but it also fits the characters a bit better in that Arya...
  25. How would you repackage the Matches Malone identity?

    It’s been a while since we’ve seen our favorite high-functioning pyro-maniac undercover ID for Batman. When was the last time we saw him, anyway?

    I’ve been thinking a good way to repackage him...
