    I think people completely overlook the moral of Clark playing football in MAN OF STEEL. It wasn't a good use of his powers. That's the point. This is what Pa relays to him when, after the best...

    I don't think editorial had a choice.

    War of the Supermen was originally supposed to be a major event but sales had tanked so bad in the year they built to it that I think they were ordered to...

    Well, there were clear indications in the first couple of chapters that Birthright was supposed to be set in the present day, or at least more present day than Man of Steel was. It also clearly and...

    Actually the editor at the time was Mike Carlin.

    If I remember right, the team went straight to Jenette Kahn, bypassing Carlin and Levitz when Carlin was out of town on vacation or something. ...

    Well Birthright wasn't necessarily supposed to be canon, at least not initially. Plus it came out in 2003/2004 when Didio had taken over and the old Superman guard had departed.

    Waid and Didio...

    Waid was blacklisted from writing the mainstream Superman for a period of time due to the Superman 2000 pitch that he and the others presented when some editor was out-of-town and it gave the...

    Maybe they're two separate situations in which Waid almost took over the Superman titles? I remember definitively that he almost took over for a disgruntled James Robinson shortly after Robinson had...

    Mark Waid almost replaced James Robinson, not Busiek or Johns. This was relatively early in Robinson's tenure with Superman, and apparently had something...

    I think DC was trying to expand the Superman universe and thought they could do this by having some lesser known supporting characters feature heavily in the main titles for a year, while continuing...

    I don't like the General Thaddeus Sam Ross Lane incarnation of the character. I know writers think that a gruff General going after Superman may make for interesting stories, but it's such a rip off...

    According to Kurt Busiek (either stated here or on the old DC boards), he and Geoff Johns had New Krypton mapped out, but left the books before it came to fruition and the direction the story...

    You can't make a more accurate statement, so I'll just second this.

    I don't think anyone is calling anyone a hack, but it's clearly not an accurate assessment/statement that the reason the MCU has changed so many aspect of the Spider-Man mythos and characters is due...

    Well, he was definitely more effective when you didn't know who he was, and solving the mystery of the character was the majority of the fun. I just don't know if, 36 years later, fans would still...

    I think the feeling is that they will. But as I stated above, if you have Xfinity it's available digitally through them.
  21. Is the Hobgoblin overrated as a villain?

    Again, I don't see it as big of a deal as you apparently do. Maybe it's because I've been a comic book fan for so long and have been following Spider-Man for nearly 30 years now that I don't need to...
