    What depresses me the most about your post is its truth. *sigh*

    I opened this thread to be all Get-Off-My-Lawn about it and say nobody.

    Then I noticed the OP mentioned Popeye. We need another visit from Captain Strong!

    Hm. By that view, from a strictly Earth POV, we're looking at Nabu the Wise in one place, and maybe The Forgotten One in the other? Or does The Wizard SHAZAM predate Nabu?

    IDK. Trump testifying, getting carried away and blustering about having "his people" exterminate everyone who votes against him and their entire families?

    Encountering him as a kid, I did not like The Vision. At. All.

    He was creepy. He had no secret ID. A robot romancing a woman. Ick.

    I still have never quite cottoned to the idea of an android...

    On one hand, I'm sure there was a certain amount of Thomas taking joy in playing with all his childhood toys. However, there's also something creatively worthwhile in giving us a reader's impression...

    Ditto! Absolutely my favorite of the name. Until Busiek gave us Kirk DePaul.

    Once the rules of the Senate are set, there's no turning back until the next session or (more commonly) when the majority changes hands. That's one of the reasons Mitch was able to clog glue anywhere...

    Mitch was negotiating power sharing terms with Schummer at the time. Him dropping his demand for the filibuster suggests that he got all he thinks he's going to get, and he no longer needs antagonize...

    How far back do you want to go? DC's Infinite Universe, for example has all but 12 issues out of The Justice Society's original All-Star Comics run, while their Batman and Superman titles have more...

    Interesting. Do you see that as something like the structure from Villains United, where you had Luthor's cabal overseeing all these organized scamsters? Or are you thinking of the SSoV as something...

    You're correct that all that 12th Century King Richard, Crusades and Locksley business is nonsense. That's not what I'm talking about.

    I'm talking about lore from a hundred years earlier, during...

    The GEICO horror movie commercial embodies my favorite pet peeve.

    Interesting points all. As to Robin Hood, I've heard speculation that the legends roots germinated during the Norman Conquest of England, when humble Saxons here and there lashed out at their...

    Yeaaaaah, the problem there is you're talking a band of villains. Not just villains, but megalomaniacal outlier villains. Something that organized and stable just ain't gonna hold up. At the very...

    Alex Ross' Justice pretty much delivered that for me.

    I would say the arc from the final season of JLU is another great take on it.

    It's probably worth a thread of its own, but I'm very curious why that is. What is it about The US that caused it to adopt this fictional character type so closely?

    What the bloody blue fuck?

    That is beyond anything I would have expected. Hope the day comes when an elderly KC is dependent on her daughter's good will.

    The Religious Nut Wing of the GOP (and those manipulating the Religious Nut Wing) also support Jews because Revelations said Armageddon and the following Happy Kingdom can't happen if Jews don't...

    What doors does Batman close.

    First, this is not a Bat-Bash thread. I have no doubt some of that will happen (us being us), but I do not pose my question to run down DC's most successful property (at least over the last 35 years...

    IIRC, the radio program gave The Shadow that "cloud men's mind" thing because describing the way he could hide in shadows didn't work in narration as well as it did in print. In the pulps (at least...

    The GOP knows there were a few large, powerful companies in FL (and elsewhere) that would have gone absolutely batshit over that, and declared jihad on any politician's reelection campaign.

    Some of those pulp stories were painful, but even those were pretty fun. The interchangeable way in which those authors used "revolver" and "automatic" was murder on my OCD tendencies. :)

    CBR's algorithm apparently doesn't like the term b-u-s-i-n-e-s-s-i-n-s-i-d-e-r, preventing me from posting a link, but that site [that must not be named] has an article on how the surviving Koch...
