    That was some terribly dull stuff wasn't it.

    I'm still not sold on the Superdad stuff but I wasn't ready to just throw out all of Superman's history because they (along with JMS) drove Superman...

    Personally I don't have much use for the kid so doing the whole Doesn't-know-his-own-strength/power thing with him doesn't phase me much.

    But...if you have to do it, it makes more sense that...

    lol

    This statement might just be a really great representation of Nuperman for me...a kind of youthful blustery aggression at times--maybe almost immature? No offense meant but Superman is just a...
  4. This is why the recent attempts to "darken"...

    This is why the recent attempts to "darken" Superman (Injustice, Man of Steel, even Nuperman at times) don't work for me. I understand how it's difficult to write a "symbol" or an "ideology" and...

    Here is where you might run up against DC's ability to attract talent. Doesn't seem like a stretch that what DC has right now in terms of talent might be the best that DC can attract/willing to...

    Oh, I don't disagree. I don't think there was anything wrong enough pre-New52 that they had to create an entirely different timeline/continuity and throw out 70 years of history but my phone hasn't...

    Nice. Or what about a dose of Silver Age Super-charisma that created some Super-sympathy. NuLana didn't stand a chance.

    Not to mention Kryptonian tech that was once available in the pre-New52 that is non-existent in the New52 as well. They seem to treat them like two separate and distinct timelines/continuities. In...

    I see what you mean but I wasn't talking storytelling opportunities. I was referencing poor sales that apparently warranted the big change up.

    Or I guess we can just stick with blaming Dr....

    How about the heelturn NuLana made once they just kind of decided Nuperman was beyond resurrecting? She jumped on the Superdad bandwagon pretty quickly. She's kind of a terrible person.

    Thanks...

    I've long thought current DC uses their screw ups as a storytelling engine. For as slapdash as most of their production has been over the last decade and the haphazard and inconsistent continuity,...

    lol, Superprick...

    It might just be you. Can't blame you though...DC is getting very accomplished at equally effing all aspects of the fanbase at some point or another. Unfortunately,...

    ^^This.

    The cognitive dissonance even as far back as when the New52 hit where they retained (or paid lipservice anyway) to most of Batman and GL's pre-existing history (just crammed into the 5...

    Interesting.

    Thanks for the info.

    I agree with this. I think the true battle will be in the sales/order numbers this garners. Even NuLois' book Superwoman has an exit strategy if her book doesn't land (her powers are killing her). ...

    Gotta say, this is a pretty convoluted wrinkle. This Superman ("Superdad") isn't this world's Superman. How will this world's heroes react? Will he be accepted? Will this be a story point? ...

    So it doesn't look like the universe has somehow automagically forgotten Nuperman and replaced Superdad in their collective memories. This was just a restart not a reboot.

    Superdad is, for all...

    This may sound weird but after being rebuffed so many times with the whole "your comic collection isn't automagically rewritten so go and read those if you don't like it" admonitions I decided that...

    I'll say this, having Gleason and Mahnke sharing art duties for this particular bi-weekly offering is one of the more inspired assignments on DC's part. I had no idea that they shared a studio but...

    I'm convinced 'grimdark' has something to do with delivery/execution and context. There're a lot of works that do virtually the same thing but if one is largely joyless while the other even has been...

    The inclusion of Wildstorm into the very origins of the DC Universe felt unearned to me. They told me Wildstorm was a keystone to the New 52 version but didn't really do a great job of showing me...

    Yeah, as a pre-New 52er (to coin a really clunky term), all I was waiting for with New 52perman was some acknowledgment that somewhere in those apocryphal 5 Year Earlier that he wore the red trunks. ...

    I think it's super weird that all of the heroes are from one universe but the Superman they have is from an entirely different universe/timeline. I don't know that that's ever happened exactly as...

    I say go with this. Everyone should attribute things they don't personally like to Dr. Manhattan. I would love nothing more than for 10 years from now people on these very boards are blaming Dr....
