    I think it will, despite being underserved in mass entertainment for the past few years, Superman is still one of the most popular characters amongst the kids I teach. He's up there with Spider-Man,...

    Unsurprisingly, the second episode was a big step up from the Frankenstein monster that was the season premier.

    The tone has shifted noticeably away from the dour grim n' gritty edginess of the...

    Exactly. From the information we currently have, all that's changed in regards to Doomsday Clock's role is that it's giving us the why and how of DCU history being changed, while Snyder's Metal,...

    Definitely. The whole point of this thread is to speculate. You're not going to spoil the story for anyone by giving your best guess since anybody who comes here is already trying to figure it out. ...

    Could any Golden Age experts explain how Alan's powers evolved from the early days? I've only read a handful of Golden Age Green Lantern stories, but it seems like the idea of using the ring to...

    In all the interviews with Geoff Johns I've read, he wasn't selling Doomsday Clock as a continuity fix at all. If anything, he was downplaying that element from the beginning. Granted, he also kept...

    We're in a strange period of DC continuity in which people's memories of the past, present, and future have been altered and revised so many times that everything is canon. That said, what each...

    Yeah, I was similarly skeptical, but all the Year of the Villain one-shots I've read have been a lot of fun. I just read The Riddler one today and it was a delight, which some great art and writing.

    Yeah, Bendis is certainly taking bigger swings than Jurgens & Tomasi did during Rebirth, which was specifically designed to win-back disgruntled and lapsed fans.

    I agree that it's always difficult...

    I'm of the same mind. I don't need Doomsday Clock to be yet another continuity clean-up story. The continuity elements of what Johns & Frank are doing are certainly compelling, but mostly because of...

    Agreed about Morrison, but I don't think he has much fear of speaking his mind, either, because he knows he's beloved enough within the industry and has no desire to kiss anyone's ass. The same is...

    The relative prominence of each GL depends greatly on whether or not there's someone with a strong creative vision for a particular character that both DC editorial and readers get behind.

    This interview was around the time of Before Watchmen, which I think was right before the New 52, and Roberson said this was a new policy, so my guess this is something started around 2010, which...

    Don't let the extremes yelling at each other convince you there isn't a middle ground. The vast majority of readers are in the middle. For every poster compelled to write about how much they hate or...

    I'm working my way through it with one of my younger students and she's loving it (and so am I). It feels like a loving tribute to the old Silver Age Superboy stories and the Smallville TV show.

    It's incredible how versatile Geoff Johns is, I was just reading a giant Twitter thread in which he's blamed for mucking with the original visions of David Ayers & Zack Snyder on Justice League &...

    It was the most obvious, and easiest, route to take, but it sure looks like Lobdell is using Dark Multiverse shenanigans to explain away Heroes in Crisis. Works for me. This is awfully reminiscent of...

    I think he's doing some good work. I don't agree with everything he's done, but I haven't ever felt like he's not trying his best to give his readers their money's worth

    It's a re-release of the Walmart exclusive comics. They are a lot of fun. I am not generally a fan of the grim n' gritty drudgery that most Batman comics are, but this series has been fantastic and...

    I absolutely loved the last issue of Batman Universe. Bendis's Hal has been so much fun every time he's written him. He's both completely unflappable when it comes to danger, yet endearingly neurotic...

    While I would love to see Mark Shaw get used again, I think he's not very likely as a suspect simply due to the fact that he hasn't been mentioned even once in the story thus far. If Bendis is to be...

    Oh, don't get me wrong. Giving hokey speeches appealing to the better parts of our nature is one of my favorite things about Superman, but it'd be a pretty big letdown if that's all the finale...

    It was a fun fight. Both Cassie and Conner got some good licks in. It ends on a cliffhanger so they'll be on Earth-3 for at least one more issue.
