    And we’re still spared hours upon hours of good actors being forced to do stupid things over and over again.

    ...I’m not going to lie, a lot of my frustration with the Arrowverse and CW soap opera...

    It’s more that Arrowverse, as part and parcel of its more soap opera basis, is far more interested in “The Chase” than it is is “The Fallout.”... which is maybe the one area where the MCU actually...

    I’m giving it to the MCU strictly on the basis that at no point did I ever go “Oh crap, this is now our official pairing, so everything I liked about the chemistry between the two actors, and...

    The way I remember/see it... the stuff leading up to Blitz showed Johns was very capable of handling Wally and his world in a very good andnconventional way. Blitz itself was a masterpiece in most...

    I’d say there is one specific aspect here that may be easy to overlook:

    Because Wally’s stories acknowledged Barry’s, it felt like characters and familiar tropes were being *built* on, not just...

    I wonder ho much different this conversation would be if Didio had held off on the New 52 or just assigned Johns to actually carry out his Flash Family plan.

    I have to agree; I don’t think Waid’s style of writing Barry was old fashioned at all in terms of style or presentation.

    Perhaps the difference comes down to Waid deliberately writing Barry as the...

    I might get a bit snarky here, but with some reasoning behind it.

    Tyranus should have the overall advantage, and pretty consistently at that, but I’d argue that if I’m allowed to make a...

    And I think this hits a lot of modern readers the wrong way because of just how long and successful the period was where teenage sidekicks grew into adults, a period that saw the heydays of Titans,...

    It’s actually probably a good point to make that management’s critical weakness that killed the New 52 was less the idea in concept, or even the initial line-up of books and creators.

    It was how...

    The real problem is more one of quality control: editorial and management, both Pre- and Post-New 52 tended to be almost hilariously inconsistent and self-destructive, and were more notable by how...

    I’ve found myself wholly using it for older stuff and the cartoons/movies, though that means mostly stuff from the 90’s/Pre-New 52. I’m most of the way through a re-read of the Stephanie Brown...

    Gotham Knights.

    An Arkham style game... but without Batman. Instead, it’s a giant free roam map with around 10 or more characters you can play as they try to deal with a Gotham where Batman has...

    I think it’s more that Didio, Lee, and Harras are utterly convinced there’s some fabled Promised Land of a New-Reader-Friendly, Perfectly-Marketable, and Eternally-Static Status Quo.

    I feel like Diop is doing a lot more than her character requires, and that’s a compliment to her as an actress and a bit of a criticism of the writing.

    Some of the characterizations feel like...

    No, the interesting part is how Hal’s single appearance in Season 3 with his haggard look and grey temples might imply Weismann’s rubbing his hands thinking “I know how to do Emerald Twilight the...

    He also worked on Beast Wars (Season 3) and Beast Machines. For the former, he apparently told Marv Wolfman to cut loose and do what he thought would work, then told the main writers for Beast...

    The difference between the Barry/Wally situation and the Hal/Kylo situation is that, to at least some extent, it’s very easy to argue that Wally was a more successful Flash during the prime of his...

    Part of the issue that I think came down against the New 52 was that I don’t think there was that much investment in its main parameters by creators who were investing their time long term in the...

    I’m suspecting a radically different color scheme; you put that costume in the traditional red, yellow, and green, and it’s going to look like a Robin costume. Put it all in green, or purple, or...

    Peter David’s original Young Justice book.
