    First thing I greenlight is a Cass Cain solo film. We're not looking for a big summer blockbuster, we're looking for something more character driven, emotional. Closer to Logan than Avengers, yknow?...

    The sequels weren't ruined because the Skywalkers didn't get a happy ending, but that sure as hell contributed to it.

    The family had already gotten its happy ending. Vader was redeemed, Leia and...

    Pretty much this. I have no real problem with Ben Solo being tempted and/or corrupted by the dark side. That's a common Skywalker narrative trait. But I do take great issue with how the sequels screw...

    Neither do I but the world is a big place. I'll entertain the notion that a valid argument might be out there somewhere. We won't find it on Fox, but it's possible there's a argument that isn't just...

    And this is why I don't "count" her as a Robin. She wore the suit and used the name, but as a prop in Tim's story. DC doesn't get credit for a prop.

    When Steph becomes Robin and the story actually...

    I agree it's risky to stack a new main character up against the Skywalker name in any core trilogy film. It's called the Skywalker saga for a reason after all. But I think Rey's arc "could" have...

    For real, I was done by issue....12? I dunno. We were dealing with vampires and the Winter Guard and the Squadron Supreme had just showed up and were working for Coulson. Maybe I lasted more than 12...

    And the other Robins have all gone by different names too. So it's a moot point.

    Three issues. The story wasn't even about her, but about how her boyfriend was the "real, bestest, ultimate Robin...

    This is where I come down on it.

    Saying that Steph isn't a Robin has nothing to do with her gender, and it's actually kind of sad that this is the first thing people assume. We all know there's a...

    You're missing the point. I'm not talking about Rey. Her parentage is a non-issue here, beyond being one example among many of how the sequels bounced around with no real direction, consistency, or...

    I'd support Robin-Stargirl. I don't know if Tim has landed on a label for his orientation yet but he's liked girls in the past and what young teenaged man wouldn't find Courtney the most adorable...

    Yeah I'm not gonna be too upset that most of Vic's supporting cast and villains didn't make it into season 3. The same can be said for a whole lot of characters.

    Vic has gotten more screen time...

    Oh I totally agree with you on that. I'd say the vast majority of the Satellite era, Black Lightning, Vixen, and several others deserve it from a in-universe perspective.

    But they're not A-list...

    Oh gods now *I'm* getting flashbacks of professors grilling me on my writing! Okay, you're right, let's leave the college lessons alone! :D

    And applying lit analysis to comics is indeed a weird...

    I think it played a role, but was merely one factor among many that threw the sequels into their downward spiral.

    I don't believe Rey was ever meant to be a Skywalker; her journey in TFA mirrors...

    I think we're talking about two different things my man.

    I'm not saying Rey *had* to be a Skywalker. Not talking about her at all really. What I'm talking about isn't any one particular thing, but...

    I think it can be read that way and not really "break" anything, absolutely. That's a fair take. But I think Jurgens and Tomasi simply ignored the characterization because it didn't fit the happy...

    That sounds vaguely familiar...might've seen something about that in an old magazine maybe.

    I know the original draft of New Hope was novelized (12 year old me loved it), but have any of the...

    Didn't pick up the anthology this guy first appeared in, but Journey to the West is a classic and I'm very intrigued by how its cast may be adapted to the DCU.

    I think the main reason Whedon made Wanda a psychic instead of a mage is because back in 2015 Marvel was still kind of hesitant to dive into the mystical side of comics. They wrote Thor and the...

    What, Lucas always planning on three trilogies? It's true. This was a thing way back when Star Wars was nothing but three movies and a handful of comics, novels, and "behind the scenes/special...

    Yes, that's what I'm saying. Even the complaints that have a vaguely valid point are still often wrapped up in homophobia and their "valid" points are thinly veiled attempts to hide the fact.
