    I also have a deep admiration for this formal attire, provided by the House of Schaffenberger. If it was up to me, Superman would wear this suit whenever he's invited to fancy public...

    If you're just taking away trunks, then you're not really inventing a new design. And all the trunkless blue long johns outfits remind me of other heroes who already had the blue long johns...

    Finished VANITY FAIR. It's purely happenstance that I picked this up after finishing WAR AND PEACE, given I knew nothing about the content of VANITY FAIR. But they work out as good companion novels....

    Yes, the creators didn't know what was going to happen. My hindsight is 20/20. It is pretty bad timing on the part of the publishers that they sandbagged the title so early in its run--maybe they...

    I thought that Mark Waid--as a Superman historian--having the chance to write the definitive Superman in BIRTHRIGHT was a huge deal. Unfortunately, his work didn't stand the test. But it could have...

    Reading ACTION COMICS ANNUAL 2 (1989)--I had to laugh (what would Martha think)--

    My sentiments exactly.

    It bugged me when the Rogues started showing up on THE FLASH T.V. series as metahumans. I wanted the gadgets and gimmicks. But the meta thing became a whole theme on the...

    It's funny how characters like Ferro Lad come on the scene to go out in a blaze of glory, sacrificing themselves and thus become legend. Only for the fans to be so in love with that character's arc,...

    The only time I read SHE-HULK was when John Byrne was writing and drawing it. And I only remember her being in her Shulkie form not transforming. And that's how I liked it. As She-Hulk, she was a bit...

    While classic National Comics/D.C. used the battle between the heroes as a bait--usually on the covers--most of the time it turned out to be a fake-out (unless it was an imaginary story). Readers...

    Aside from the obvious classic team line-ups, I really liked the roll call of characters in the first year of JUSTICE LEAGUE EUROPE--even more than the JUSTICE LEAGUE AMERICA cast that preceded it....

    Even though what happened in issue 5 angered me, I did keep buying this run for a few years. I even bought some of the issues around Zero Hour, but after that I didn't want to go on with it.

    I've...

    You piqued my interest. For me these first four issues, as strange and offputting as they were, still were part of the old Legion run. They should have just tacked these four issues onto that old run...

    I well remember seeing this movie back in the 1980s. Not in 1980, but whenever it made it to North America. I wasn't outraged or offended by it. I wouldn't say it was a comedy--just an interesting...

    Never seen the movie, nor the music video until just now. Thanks. Has me wondering, what if Cubby Broccoli had convinced Roger Moore that James...

    I wonder how many drive-ins can still be open here on the west coast. We have the worst air quality in the world. In B.C., we haven't had as many wild fires as past years, yet we have the smoke from...

    The first time that the Sub-Mariner and the Human Torch meet--in MARVEL MYSTERY COMICS 8 (June 1940)--they fight. The first time that a group of D.C. and All-American heroes get together--in ALL-STAR...

    While I like CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, it's bugged me that, since his divorce, Larry can get any attractive woman he wants. I mean, I believe he can get them because he's rich and he's famous, but I...

    "I'm thinking of ending things" is what I kept thinking as I watched I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS--and by "ending" I mean ending my watching of the movie. But I kept with it, just because I had gone...

    Pre-Crisis--given he always had his powers from the time he arrived on Earth--Kal-El had more experiences than anyone else. He travelled into the distant past and into the future. He travelled to so...

    Didn't they essentially steal from the Power Girl origin to come up with the new Supergirl origin?

    For the young whipper-snappers, you will not remember, and I barely do myself, but Maynard G. Krebbs upstaged Dobie Gillis on THE MANY LOVES OF DOBIE GILLIS--the beatnik Maynard was played by Bob...

    Pre-Crisis, Superman had a super-memory. Having been a toddler on Krypton, he could recall details about the planet from before its destruction. His memory was only slightly impaired due to exposure...

    Most new characters go through a period of rapid change and development. Once they acquire a large enough market to sustain them, they settle into a status quo that satisfies that audience. This can...

    Daphne was the only character I could really like on that show--and why she was stuck with the rest of them, I have no idea. There are some shows with cringe characters that I enjoy--like SEINFELD,...
