    I think we are past the point of worrying about new readers vs old readers and should just celebrate that a book has readers.
  2. My perfect Lex is closer to his Bronze Age...

    My perfect Lex is closer to his Bronze Age situation according to Elliot Maggin than the Byrne/Wolfman take we've seen for the last 35 years.

    First Lex is what he is and unless he is furthering...

    But would the lack of a shared universe mean that we lose the "World's Finest" or that Superman teams up more with say Gangbuster or Guardian to create a different version of those type of tales? If...

    Pro: A larger Superman Universe. Unlike the DCU where space is filled with Green Lanterns. Hawkpeople, Tamaranians ; you would get a universe built with Superman as the center. And the Lanterns...

    The "Panic in the Sky" episode of the 1950's TV series. Sometime early in his career Superman encountering a meteor asteroid (probably with some small embedded kryptonite) that leaves him unsure of...

    I haven't read anything about these forces, so forgive me if this is something already known from the comics, but is there any chance that the Speed Force is actually the threat here? I kept getting...

    It's a mixed bag.

    The more noble Kryptonians like Kara that show up, the less of an exception Superman seems to be. It's not like Clark shows a lot more restraint compared to Supergirl, Mon-El,...

    That was a great story. I'd love to see this show take a few notes from that story when it comes to Jonathan dealing with not being a potential Superman.

    Does "Who Took the Super out of Superman" count? He was depowered as Clark, but not as Superman so I'm not sure.

    There was a Superboy story where Clark reduced/removed his powers in an attempt to...

    A JSA series taking a few cues from The Golden Age, America VS the JSA and Watchmen

    The setting is a documentary type interview- maybe as an Easter Egg you use someone like Vic Sage or Galaxy...

    But largely that is what is done. Everyone is either omni-talented to the point of interchangability (see almost any science based character) or they are the team (fill in defined role- muscle,...

    I think with certain characters the whole concept is that they are pretty much "the best at Y". Wildcat is a former boxing champ- not some guy who had a s few boxing matches. Aquaman (and his...

    I think the problem was two-fold.

    1) Roy's desire to replace the characters removed by Crisis without actually replacing them. Iron Munro was interesting to me as a character, but he was no...

    Wasn't there a special issue between Final Crisis and Flashpoint where the wizard supposedly returned, depowered Mary and Billy before setting out to take down Freddy. I remember reading it and then...

    Not when both stem from a loss of emotional control. Understand, I am not arguing for a situation where Jordan sets out to do any damage, rather one where either he goes to do an innocuous act (say...

    I'm suddenly picturing Jordan in the ruins of Metropolis with his parents explaining to the JLA- "It's not his fault. He has anxiety issues"

    Has to be All-Star Squadron. You can just feel the love Roy has for taking existing comics and history trivia as building blocks for his stories. And you can see how the loss of that undercut a lot...

    I prefer the Pre-Crisis take where he was Clark's bossover the obvious "big business bogeyman" or "secret head of Intergang".

    The Pre-Crisis take gave us a well rounded character that could be...

    Not knowing a thing about the characters and not really caring to learn has pretty much been the WB formula.

    Except that sounds more like the Roy Thomas' explanation for the longevity of the JSA members or the weird John Byrne explanation in She Hulk about character's aging being tied to whether they were...

    If anyone ever read Roy Thomas' Anthem I'd work one of his concepts from there in. We'd pick up just prior to where Young All Stars occurred on the original Earth-Two (The Trinity plus Robin, Speedy...

    The problem with the Hawks is that the situation is somewhere between rare and unique. It's not fair to judge their relationship based on things that don't apply- like only having only three score...

    I can see what the writer was going for but it just fell flat for me.

    The inspirational story felt like something made up (yeah, i know it's all made up). Watters was just a name and the events...
