    Im basically in the same boat. Giving Millennium a shot, just to see the crazy Kirby stuff and whatever we might see of the Legion, and if that and the Super-books do a decent job of hyping me up...

    Voted yes.

    Guy is a great character, probably one of DC's most undervalued "real person" heroes. And I think Soule did a fantastic job with Red Lanterns and introduced a great new angle to explore...

    You know I like the Legion being taken out of Clark's origin as little as you do, but let's see where the story goes. Wouldn't be the first time we've read the comics despite not liking something...

    Yeah, that got me too. Just watched the movie last night for the first time since opening weekend, and I realized that the only time in the Thanos battle that Thor really cuts loose with the...

    This *is* a concern, and I too prefer my period piece stories to reflect the attitudes of the time (assuming they're not purposefully subverting things, like some comedies do....Monty Python's Holy...

    I've really enjoyed the little bit of movement Bendis has taken in that direction but I find myself sort of torn by the idea. Making Zod less of a straight up villain could be an amazing development,...

    Ah, you had that idea too huh?

    It's a pretty obvious one right? Two bald evil scientists throwing down to see who's top dog? I'm surprised it's never happened.

    We are very far removed from the 90's or early 00's. Now, maybe if that Enemy Ace film was made back then it'd have reached the same kind of cult classic status that Blade and The Crow have reached,...

    Oh yeah, that's ringing a bell now, thanks for the reminder.

    Yeah, hard pass from me on that. I generally dislike it when connections are retroactively added into a character's backstory. I tend...

    I am definitely down with the idea of Gateway City being an actual gateway city, with portals to any number of different places around the globe, space, and other realms. I've seen that mentioned...

    Well I think a Superman show set in the present day could work just as well as a period piece. But my preference for the 1930's-1940's setting comes down to using that to....distance....viewers from...

    Hard to say, everyone has different tastes.

    I have enjoyed the books a lot more than I enjoyed the MoS mini, for whatever that's worth.

    Odds are you know the basics about both books; Action...

    I wouldn't worry too much about it yet. People have been saying that comics were dying and on the verge of cancellation for decades. Literally since before I started reading in the early 1990's....

    That's what I would assume. Thor certainly wasn't useless in Endgame, but he sat on his ass for five years drinking. Dude was not at the top of his game. But he walked out of the film with a new...

    I hear good things, and when I eventually sub to DCU for YJ I'll give the show a shot. It's just not something I have a lot of interest in. I wouldn't get the sub just for Titans, yknow? But I would...

    Hell, most days I feel that way about anyone who isn't Batman or maybe Harley Quinn.

    I maintain that Cyborg, as a non-legacy PoC character, would be an ideal choice to spearhead a representation...

    I actually think it'd be a brilliant move on Marvel's part to create a new, original character for the movies, and then spin that character into the comics.

    Now, larger media success doesn't...

    Steve's backstory? Hmmm.

    Well first off I think I'd want to avoid the "military family" thing. Almost every soldier in comics comes from a long line of soldiers (most of whom died before their...
