    They could. All they have to do is lean into Powers Reserved Unto The States dialog the next time a Dixie State gets sued for passing a hyper restrictive law and they'll rip it out of some very large...

    Narrativly, it was more a matter of fit From Day One, Metamorpho had been positioned as a different kind of character than what the League featured; more reluctant victim of circumstance than...

    That one may not qualify as controversial. Superman should be treated better.

    Much depends on the Senate races. If Trump wins, the probability of another impeachment is very high, as is the likelihood that he will try more vigorously than ever to rip the guts from any curb on...

    About a decade later, by which time his status quo had changed.[/QUOTE]

    Also, the Defenders of which he was a part, from their origins, were nonconformist outsiders. Not infrequently, Dr. Strange...

    As others have said, Hulk was not a good narrative fit for a team back then. Also, Marvel's villain bench was a bit thin at the time, and that gave the Avengers (and the FF) somebody to chase around....

    DC Comic ______ Blew My Mind.

    I had no idea that The Legion of Superheroes was originally presented as children of the Superhero Club Superboy met in Adventure Comics #247. Obviously, later stories quietly overwrote that, making...

    Gort and The Destroyer are one among many examples that make me suspect Kirby and his generation cribbed a lot from B movies.

    Thanks folks. You probably just energized a creatively bankrupt writer's pitch for Marvel's Next Event.

    While I get your point, that doesn't bug me. If the last 3 decades have taught me anything, it's that only horrible monsters seem to have unwavering fans. The public is all too eager to tear good...

    A reelection would be a cherry on the sundae, no doubt.

    That said, Putin's primary goal is maximum chaos in the US. Trump certainly enables that, but they can get it by contesting Biden win, no...

    It depends on what era you're talking about.

    In the last 20+ years, writers really leaned into the JSA as a family and group nuturing legacies.

    In the years between the first JL/JS teamups and...

    I've sometimes wondered if YJ.2 was supposed to have a couple of more episodes to it. They did a BUNCH of shoe-horning near the end.

    This is the nightmare scenario. I won't speak for POC, but there are arguments that unrest among those populations is grounded in their (quite understandable) belief that the US' rule of law has...

    As a veteran, I'd submit it's too often less an acknowledgement of any debt than it is a convenient means of pretending gratitude and respect. While I'm sure that some people are since in the...

    Well said. You put me in mind of All About Eve. Gary Merrill pretty much quotes you in attacking the pretentions of The Theatre.

    Wow. I don't think I've seen a thread descend into a bar fight this fast in some time.

    That would have been a more interesting plot. But honestly (IMO), the franchise had all its fuel exhausted in the second film. It should have been left off there (no matter how much l liked Garcia in...

    Challenging your opinion of violence's sources? Yes.

    Belittling? It's unfortunate you took it that way, which was not the intent. But sarcasm (lowest form of humor that it may be), is a frequent...

    I would LOVE to see somebody do a proper Lensman series.

    I said most, and honestly “violence” is pretty ambiguous. I was more so thinking about armed conflict/fist fights. Also, why did you leap to Poland here? In that example, the group in question would...

    Um. Sure. All those Poles were just asking for it in 1939. Just like all the rape victims over the millennia.
