    That Oracle Year One story had that great, really painful line about TKJ, where Babs asks if Batman and Joker were sharing a laugh *at her*.

    I can feel that burn decades later.
  2. Anyone got any “lost gems” they’d like to...

    Anyone got any “lost gems” they’d like to recommend? Little, forgotten stories that deserve a look or two?

    There’s “Heat” in Legends of the Dark Knight - it’s basically a pretty good of grimy...

    Definitely agree about Oracle being kind of a “refined” Babs from the horrible crucible of TKJ. Ostrander and everyone else who worked with the character afterwards basically took the character’s...

    Yeah, their was this weird dissonance about Steph after her death that felt so artificial and unearned - it was a “party line” that they were sort of required to espouse no matter how little sense it...
  5. I think part of the issue with Steph’s death, and...

    I think part of the issue with Steph’s death, and with how much it fed into the “Didio hates her” storyline was that, due to scheduling issues, her death almost got immediately overshadowed by the...

    Dixon at his prime was basically the greatest workhorse in the Batman line’s history, especially when working under Denny O’Neil - that seemed to be the perfect blend of a strong editorial vision...

    Alternatively, the answer is don’t do a “reboot” - do a “remix” like the Batman books experienced after the Crisis on Infite Earths.

    Don’t start over; instead, while carrying on the successful...

    I’d probably go this way:

    1. No Man’s Land. To me, that’s how you do a crossover/status quo change, and I love how it had multiple little sub arcs that I loved, like Cassandra Cain’s introduction,...
  9. I guess my counter argument is that that the ease...

    I guess my counter argument is that that the ease with which it’s core consequences were rejected and undone means that, for me, when viewed as part of the larger story... it’s the misstep, the...

    Eh, I still think War Games winds up more as a misstep than a low point... but that’s mostly because of execution, and because of how, in hindsight, OYL let them pretty mich ignore almost all of it’s...
  11. I think War Games was the only major...

    I think War Games was the only major crossover/event that got a bad reputation during this period, or at least the only one that didn’t later receive a slight resurgence as time crept by. It kind of...

    Since, at various times, Green Lantern has supported a Galaxy-wide Corps, Batman supported Batman Inc., and Superman supported something called The Legion of Superheroes... I think that honestly the...

    A new gun moll and fellow misanthrope could slot into Harley’s old spot as Joker’s sidekick, which has admittedly amounted to less of her appeal ever since Mad Love made her sympathetic and since...

    That would honestly be the ideal setup; you want a reboot that can bring people in? See how Post-Crisis actually did fine with continuity, used “events” correctly, and focused on differentiation and...
  15. The value of the expanded cast, heroes and...

    The value of the expanded cast, heroes and villains, is probably just too much for any true hard reboot that would be starting over with Batman Day One.

    About the *only* way I could see that...

    What type f claws would you go for? The Burton style grotesque thumbtack-needle combo? Something more mundane like the ninja shuko located in the palm? The BTAS-style golden fingernails of doom?...

    I was on another board talking about Zoe Kravitz playing Catwoman in the new Batman movie, and this occurred to me:

    Okay, since Kravitz herself has said this film would be more “grounded”, and...
  18. Poll: I think I prefer to say that Flashpoint...

    I think I prefer to say that Flashpoint “derailed” the Flash and Flash Family, rather than “ruined” it.

    I’d say that Flash Rebirth, and the chaos before it that Johns and Waid had been trying to...
  19. Poll: And we’re still spared hours upon hours of good...

    And we’re still spared hours upon hours of good actors being forced to do stupid things over and over again.

    ...I’m not going to lie, a lot of my frustration with the Arrowverse and CW soap opera...
  20. Poll: It’s more that Arrowverse, as part and parcel of...

    It’s more that Arrowverse, as part and parcel of its more soap opera basis, is far more interested in “The Chase” than it is is “The Fallout.”... which is maybe the one area where the MCU actually...

    I’m giving it to the MCU strictly on the basis that at no point did I ever go “Oh crap, this is now our official pairing, so everything I liked about the chemistry between the two actors, and...

    The way I remember/see it... the stuff leading up to Blitz showed Johns was very capable of handling Wally and his world in a very good andnconventional way. Blitz itself was a masterpiece in most...

    I’d say there is one specific aspect here that may be easy to overlook:

    Because Wally’s stories acknowledged Barry’s, it felt like characters and familiar tropes were being *built* on, not just...

    I wonder ho much different this conversation would be if Didio had held off on the New 52 or just assigned Johns to actually carry out his Flash Family plan.

    I have to agree; I don’t think Waid’s style of writing Barry was old fashioned at all in terms of style or presentation.

    Perhaps the difference comes down to Waid deliberately writing Barry as the...
