  1. Now it can be told: the first appearance of Brainiac!

    Every school child knows that the first appearance of Brainiac in the Superman comic books was in “The Super-Duel in Space,” ACTION COMICS 242 (July 1958), right? It’s in all the history books. It’s...

    Even when I didn't like the flashbacks anymore, they usually served to comment on the story in the present in some way. Just like the flashbacks in KUNG FU and LOST. I don't see how the flash...

    It seems like Poison Ivy would be a good character to have in a movie about the emancipation of one Harley Quinn.

    I suppose to truly win a MacGuffin battle something has to be ironically irrelevant. So the more awesome something turns out to be, the less it's an actual MacGuffin. The briefcase in PULP FICTION is...

    The Infinity Gauntlet is all the stones on one glove. But the one ring is the ring to rule them all. It's LORD OF THE RINGS--not RING.

    Of course, for the CW the real reason for the gap is ratings. They get a spike in ratings for December and then another one in January, which translates into advertising dollars. Show me the money....

    Like a lot of royals, Diana doesn't have a last name per se, but most royals use a last name for convenience. That's how I see it for Diana. I guess she could call herself Diana Princess--but being a...

    It worries me that no Monitor is coming to Earth-38 to tell Supergirl she has to die to save all existence--like with the Flash.

    I've never seen Zoe Kravitz in anything (that I know of), but her publicity machine has a weird way of promoting her image. All the publicity photos I've seen show her looking distant, unemotional...

    This plot structure--where you have a main plot in one issue and several subplots, then in the next issue one subplot becomes the main plot and so on--is something I admired in the seventies Marvel...

    The thing is the concept of the Manhunter from Mars has been evolving over time since 1955. Originally, he was from a peace-loving Mars, where they had no war for thousands of years. Then that was...

    I thought you were going to tell me that he was paired with a man. That would maybe indicate that J'Onn doesn't conform to one sexuality over another. Having him always with women--unless he's in a...

    I think of Diana Prince as being the real character and Wonder Woman is simply her job description--the same as Ralph Dibny, the Elongated Man. I consider it monumental stupidity when the mod Diana...

    What's AU stand for?

    When DC introduced the new Superwoman (Kristin Wells), in 1981, it was expressly stated that this was done to retain the trademark on the name. DC through lack of inattention...

    The comic books and even moreso the TV shows seem to shy away from exploring the full implications of Martian sexuality. Since they're gender fluid, they shouldn't be in these classic middle America...

    There's a gap of almost six years between 1948 and the end of 1953, when Jimmy doesn't appear in the comics. I imagine like a lot of other classic supporting characters in the 1940s that he had been...

    If the Earths are amalgamated it really won't matter anymore, because the one Earth will have one timeline, with all the DC characters in it.

    That's why I think we have to look past the English words spelled out with the Kryptonian alphabet, just like we should with the Interlac alphabet the Legion uses--as these are just in-jokes for the...
