    M*A*S*H also came first to my mind, until I recalled that the replacements came pretty early in the series.

    Nice. It almost sounds like the way Butcher treated angels in his Dresden books, vastly powerful, but utterly shorn of agency.

    This is correct. It was a mess that didn't need making.

    As Jody said tho, the big issue was Marvel seizing the name. I've read elsewhere it a was a bit of mania with Stan Lee's publisher predecessor, Martin Goodman.

    [The Real] Captain Marvel outta whup Superman up and down the block. Without Prep Time, there are at least half-a-dozen characters that should spank Batman like he's a naughty school boy.

    Her look is well suited to it, but TBH, I hope they'll generally steer clear of TOS characters (except maybe STD's version of Mudd, who was a dastardly delight in the first season). If for no other...

    Exactly. The last point at which Batman didn't have a ridiculous load of lore was probably prior to 1942, but you can still explain who he is in one sentence with only a couple of commas.

    This is a fair point. Feige, et al. started out with what amounted to Marvel's Third String of IP, and blew past what had been done before with the First and Second teams. However, I would suggest...

    I have to disagree with it making her more interesting. Yeah she was a mess from jump street, but they settled her into an effective and streamlined origin with the pre-Crisis Bronze Age. It was...

    Jay Garrick was a comic book character on Earth-1, he inspired Barry Allen to go into forensics and then later, when Barry got his powers, he took up the Flash moniker in honor of Jay. Later, he met...

    Long, convoluted backstories leaning on complex interactions between events and characters are fine for hardcore fans. But, it erodes the power of the character to connect with a broader readership....

    Am I alone in preferring Z in a full tux shirt (or at least a full-front tux dicky) to a cleavage-baring getup?

    Boy. That's a buzz-kill for the nostalgia with which I opened this thread. ;)

    That was one of the great sitcom episodes of all time.

    I'll dive in on prep time. Far as I can tell, the first case of it was JLA 1.112, which was pretty good, and it's been done well a couple of times since, but enough already.

    There was some discussion of the loss of elegance in auto design on Kirby's car thread. Fuel and manufacturing efficient designs murdered those old beauties.

    As a rule, the more words it takes to describe, the weaker the brand (including characters).

    I'm not enough of a connoisseur to say which is better, but I enjoyed Goodfellas more. While I liked Casino, I found myself mildly annoyed by all three of its main characters.
