    That's cold bro.

    Stone cold.



    You're right, punching is usually Superman's way. And usually I give that a free pass because he's a man of action and gratuitous violence is how we solve our...

    All of which are, far as I'm concerned, mistakes that DC has perpetrated for far too long and are in need of course correction. You're right, people don't really see this as an issue, the Legion...

    That's a fair point, but Clark's appeal has never been in being the "not gritty one" and the success of the MCU is only a good thing for all of us. If a film is quality, he doesn't have to worry...

    I really hope this is what we get. A book set in the past, with classic "triangle for two" Superman, maybe one with married Superdad, and one with Super-Jon would be my ideal. I'd read all of those. ...

    Sure they showed up before Clock was done, that series took twice as long to tell as it should've and you can only expect other books to spin their wheels for so long before you gotta start advancing...

    Hey now, those are fighting words! I'm Gen X, muthaf---er! :D

    .....or Gen Xenial, depending on which years you use to define this stuff.

    I do too, but at this point it's kind of impossible to say, outside of a few exceptions like Tim and Damian. We're still technically in New52 continuity but only partially and....who the hell knows?

    As is often the case, Sacred shares my exact opinion.

    The idea that "Clark" is the man and "Superman" is a mask works for very specific versions that limit themselves to one particular element of...

    I think Clark's arguably in a slightly better place than he was ten years ago. I think people are getting tired of the grit and edgy stuff and are slowly starting to shift towards wanting a hero who...

    It's true that Clock was supposed to matter and ended up being its own sorta self-contained thing. But if you're gonna let some parts of it leak into the main continuity, you might as well let all of...

    Well, at this point who knows? Rebirth continuity hasn't actually touched on ages, for the most part. But in the New52 yeah, Dick was 21 or 22 or so. Tim was 16. Damian turned 13. Beyond that I don't...

    So in other words "We don't like Johns' reboot idea anymore so we're doing mine." :D

    That still doesn't match up though. Clock brought back the Kents (and Clark-Superboy?), and Bendis is running...

    A direct adaptation isn't going to appeal to little kids, I'm not arguing for something like that. I don't want my daughter watching an adaptation of Catwoman's rooftop sex scene...
