    I'd actually be interested in using some kind of survey tool to find out what percentage of the forum has read what books. See what's most read, least read. Maybe analyze patterns of what groups of...

    This is my fear as well - the movie using a race-essentialist narrative that reinforces individualist notions of power and representation, which are then used as a cudgel against universalist...

    Haven't read that book, but considering West's critiques of it and his underlying worldview, I would probably gag seeing his neoliberal take. Obama with an S on his chest.

    I don't know. To me this just says they still don't have confidence in the character as is, so they need to attach this as a gimmick to sell him and generate buzz.

    It's not just that he's black, his career is almost exclusively centered on the black experience and white supremacy in his writings.

    It sounds like we're getting a black Superman. If it isn't Val Zod and is instead the main DCU Superman with a race change, I'm afraid there's going to be more backlash than ever before that will...

    Disagree. At his best, he's treated fully like a villain, but he has his moments of inner conflict. Especially with regards to his family.



    Oh true, Hex is a great pick.

    I actually think his best parallel is probably Deathstroke. He's not a hero, but he has a similar vibe in that he's plagued with painful memories, and each is "the best at what he does". Their skill...
  10. Yeah, this is an important clarification.

    Yeah, this is an important clarification.
  11. I don't have strong feelings either way on this...

    I don't have strong feelings either way on this issue about Cyborg's genitals, but it shouldn't be a huge burden for creators to be conscious of what their stories and characters portray,...

    I think villainous characters with redemption stories have to be few and far between. Most villains are pretty irredeemable, and don't have a realistic path towards redemption. Most of the time,...

    This is wild speculation, but I wonder if there was a hint of a romantic relationship originally shot, like him flirting with a cheerleader during a game, or a line where Cyborg says something like...

    That reminds me of a post I made a while back trying to divide comic-book villains (DC ones in particular) into broad categories.



    I guess, just like heroes, the best villains are usually...

    I like sympathetic villains, but they probably are a bit overdone these days. In the thread you posted, that kind of "woe is me" posture is something that I think often detracts from the villain's...

    This isn't exactly an ordinary case of call-out culture, social media is only tangentially related to the central workplace issues. People were frustrated that he wasn't being specific enough - how...
  17. Not sure how they came to discuss it, but Cyborg...

    Not sure how they came to discuss it, but Cyborg fans have lamented that he was basically emasculated and rendered incapable of normal sex, which sucks for the character in its own right, but also...

    I hope we get extended scenes from Darkseid's invasion and the ancient civilization stuff.

    I could live with it being hinted towards, with Bruce being the primary one catching feelings. In fact, by way of gaining respect and admiration for Lois, I could see him having that much more...

    This was posted earlier, but whether you liked the films or not on its own merits, this is clearly true.

    I wonder if the movie will acknowledge Ted Kord at all. Not that it needs to, but it would be nice if they could sneak in a mention at least.

    There are no biologically valid categories of "race". There is genetic variation in the human population which includes appearance, but phenotype is a poor indicator for underlying genetics.

    I prefer the strong red hair but still not convinced that she's certifiably blonde. Their underwater lighting effect might just diminish the color.
