    Just out of mild curiosity: if they wrote a story revealing that the Starheart-influenced lantern actually saved two men, and the second one has been toiling secretly and evilly, and now emerges to...

    You know, if some one says: "I'm a fan of Alan Scott and I quite like his GA history. I think his relationships with women - and his personal emotions while he was pursuing them, whether they were...

    Many gay men, pressured intensely by society, family, and religion, and told that if they try hard enough they can "change" (and if they don't then they will have a horrid life), spend years in...

    You know, I have no need to see a restored, more-or-less original WW II-era JSA Alan Scott be gay. But when I read something like this:



    it prompts me to say: Okay, he's bisexual, and didn't...

    Well, on the primary DCU (during a certain span of Rebirth time, with "The Lies" and "The Truth"), that was said, and explicated. And I think it's a very bad idea for reasons I've gone into before,...

    I'm a fan of Alan Scott, and I wish he were handled better in the comics. But he was not selling well, and his comic was cancelled in 1949. Hal Jordan was created 12 years later, and continued to...

    During The New 52, they created new, young versions of the JSA (not legacy characters, but the first ones in their own world) in an entirely new world they called Earth-2. The characters were similar...

    So did I! And, like you, I didn't realize it until last night. I'm not sure they've ever called her anything but Dee before.

    I would almost guarantee it's deliberate. The writers are very aware...

    Oh, thank you!

    Y'know, "Dark Angel" is available, currently unused, and has a publication-history link with Donna And would go great with a starfield-design costume.. Some people respond with "I...

    Your description drove me to Google for images. Now that is a bizarre, chimeric, astonishing villain if I ever saw one! The fairy wings really complete her design. Thank you for introducing me to...

    For Diana, at least. Not so much for all the rest of the Amazons. Seeing them, you had to wonder how she broke away from their cult of man-hating murderers (who mistreated her as a kid because she...

    As far as I can recall they didn't kill babies. They killed the fathers of the babies, after having sex with them. And they planned to kill the (male) babies. But Hephaestus (feeling sorry for the...

    But how can she be Ares' daughter when Ares has been locked up in a prison beneath Themyscira until a few years ago? Unless, as some people suggested, the prison was majorly insecure, and he could...

    I don't actually think that's true. As far as I can remember, Diana found out "The Truth" at the same time that the readers did - that is, in the "current day," which, in the Rebirth era, would be...

    Thanks for saying this. Sometimes I get so pointlessly flustered with the way they did this that I'm not sure I'm making my point clear.

    And I'm with you all the way on Wally, and especially on...

    In the movies she's fighting in WW I, and I don't expect that's going to make it into the comics.

    DC continuity has had so many shifts in the last 10 years, and in particular Wonder Woman's origin...

    That was not the mechanism they evoked, though. They took the adage "A person can't be in two different places at the same time" as though it were holy writ. (Even though time travel should naturally...
