    I have a couple of different views of this.

    First, I'm less interested in history being slavishly clung to than I am characters having consistent behaviors. Event comics tend to be a bit bad...

    Back in the '70s, when The Freedom Fighters had their own title, even as a child, this struck me as one of comics wackier creations. And I loved him for it.

    Johnny Quick is way cooler than any Flash, and he always was.

    First off, this is absolutely great. That said, there was something about it that was nagging at me, and I couldn't quiet put my finger on it until just now.

    It's intensely Trinity-centric. You...

    Flash Rogues Question

    Back in the day, I only read Flash sporadically, except during the first two or three years of the Post-Crisis run. I remember Flash's lineup of baddies being collectively called his "Rouges Gallery"...

    It wasn't enough to get particles, because they mainly needed the Tesseract, with which Loki had already scampered in the time and place they were standing. They needed a specific time and location...

    IMO, the MCU blew it with Spider-Man. They don't get that he quips because the mask is what licenses polite, meek Parker to give voice to his frustration with bullies and thugs. He's living out what...

    Paul makes some really great points!

    I used to love DC's horror line. Weird Western Tales, Weird War Tales, etc. One of my faves was about a fighter pilot who went up without his good luck charm,...

    Thank You! I despised The Wonder Twins and their freaky pet, even as a pre-teen in their original run.

    Would cinema benefit if Star Wars failed?

    So, there's some mumbling that The Star Wars franchise is in trouble, failing to connect with segments of its existing fans, but more seriously, failing to create new fans. Is that a bad thing?

    You know, it occurs to me that a fun direction for these two would be as founders of something like Busiek's Power Company, building a new and unique team for the DCU.

    Dr. Fate was originally an orphan trained by an ancient sorcerer as the sorcerer's successor. The sorcerer later became a Lord of Order, who had deliberately murdered Kent Nelson's father, and who...

    Agreed, MajorHoy. The Sandman, and CA are examples of the creators getting it right the first time, and being ill-served by a later talent (even if one of them was Jack Kirby).

    Ah. I take it then, that you use "disaster" to mean The X-Men under Feige would be presented in a tone that you think isn't best for the core of their characters.

    Possibly. I'd say, "let's see."...
