    My controversial opinion- Before his recent reveal neither Clark nor Lois should have been celebrities. They should be local beat reporters whose names might be known in Metropolis, but who 99% of...

    I distinctly remember when they killed Jason Todd. I had bought the first three issues off the shelf for cover price. The final issue was bagged with a higher price by my then local shop the day...

    I can see that. The 1938 stuff as Superman on an Earthlike planet under a red sun might work.

    I don't disambiguate the powers as much between those from the sun and purely physical as much as...

    I don't hate the solar battery idea and actually have it play a part in my head cannon. I've just seen too many stories that lean too far into "just a human being with sun powers" making Superman...

    To me there just should never be a "before" and "after" to Clark's abilities.

    If we were doing a reboot as this thread asks, I'd get rid of the solar basis for the powers and return to the idea...

    Right. But as Clark he has connections that had no ties to Superman. These people are now on the radar, as well. And that hot dog vendor might be more interesting as a target when you realize...

    Sure Lois and Jimmy were always connected to Superman and logical targets, but now things only connected to Clark are public. The professor he had in Superman: Heroes, for example, had no connection...

    1) Lois Lane- Neutral as she can bring out Superman's better qualities or his worst depending on the writer.
    2) Lana Lang- Negative as she traps him in his boyhood and the Clark Kent side of his...

    I think I read somewhere that either Weisinger or Ellsworth had actually requested the writers to make Superman stories more like the comedic Lucy adventures. So Lois as Lucy Ricardo to Superman's...

    I don't respect Superman for his powers. I respect him for his use of the powers. For me the high level of his powers is just a way to remove societal pressure as a motivator. Superman could run...

    My take was that since Superman never referenced his powers ever being lesser during the 1940's that they never were. The stuff that seemed to stymie him in 1939 but not 1942 wasn't his powers...
  13. Anyone else ever buy a series they weren't reading?

    I somehow find myself putting together my monthly pull list and realizing I am pulling a title every month that I actually haven't read in months. Not one of those usual things where DC is late in...

    Why?

    Your average athlete runs a mile in 4 minutes and feels challenged to see if he can cut that down to 3:59. That athlete is motivated to train every day if necessary to shave that second off...

    To me Superman was never about striving to be the best. It was about being the best. Not in a "Superman never gets beaten" or a "Superman outclasses every other member of the JLA" manner, but in the...

    I half agree. I think the supernatural stuff works a bit better than trying to come up with a purely time-based McGuffin. And I don't dislike Constantine or Charlie as characters. But the...

    I think this thread pretty much shows why a conservative hero would never fly on the CW. No one knows what a conservative is and any attempt at a definition is either a bunch of strawman arguments...

    But when did Dick Grayson become less iconic? Because DC has never made a move to put Dick back as Robin, but I'd assume most of what cemented Bruce and Batman as iconic would also apply to Dick...

    Actually, with time travel you have to wonder just how the Doctor's incarnations even work.

    Even on Eath-2, Roy Thomas covered them by writing a story to let the street level JSAers remain close to their physical primes when they were over 60 years old.
