    I was going with a definition of cynical as being able to understand and write characters motivated by self interest. Being able to do a jaded take on morality. Not specifically optimistic as his bad...

    Um, right... well Oda doing Superman would be neat in that as the least cynical guy in comics he would spread casualties like seven years apart.



    Superman might be his best mainstream character...

    I can see it if someone is talking about the sentiments and sometimes what seems like direct reference, even if as parody or subversion. I know it's not the topic focus but it really is a strong...

    I don't think there's a whole type of people who shouldn't write a character, but defensive writing for Superman is one of my least favorite things. If a depiction boils down to "nuh uh he's cool...

    I think for the modern chapter you have to blame For All Seasons at the very latest.



    Byrne's starting points were the early versions of the origin where Pa inspired Clark to become Superman...

    The original Superman would have come up in middle America through the early 20th century. Through all the variations of the character that touch never really went away. But maybe you could say it...

    I think DC's idea for the seasonal maxi series model came from Marvel making a big emphasis on the same thing some years ago with lesser known characters, revamps, and experiments. Green Lantern has...

    Never saw that one. It was hard to tell how powerful he was supposed to be after the blast. A lot of people prefer a nerf than a complete red sun inhibition, and this was a good example of that.

    The top five is so hilariously what you could predict almost 30 years ago. And all of those books were sold at higher than average price, these companies did well in hitting the market.

    Wow thanks. That's actually one of my all time favorite single issues but I really couldn't remember that being included



    Yeah. Obviously it's a lot easier to like the character when he's a...

    I expect Bendis to grow into the different characters. Breaking down several specifically can be a good way to open, but he chose the opposite (with a few extended introductions, granted) and I like...

    I'm actually still sore that millennium #2 hasn't gotten to me yet but I probably won't wait to read this. Wonder how far Sook has gotten.

    Yeah, I was speaking to the "colored every future interaction" thing. Miller was incredibly influential on the Batman franchise and changed much of the industry with DKR even if his work in the few...

    As pointed out, one of the weirdest things in the story is just the approximation of Batman himself. A guy sort of named Pete Ross and a childhood friend named Lana with red hair are on the line of...

    Should, but historically he isn't. It used to be quite regular that his powers would immediately leave at once in red sunlight, so Millar isn't at all in the wrong with his showing of the powers. You...

    A less experienced isn't strictly what I would call "wrong" but it does take a part of the character away from the rest.

    I saw someone repost part of it recently. A shame because as I remember it was in the back of a completely random bronze age comic. It would take me forever to dig through and find out.

    I like OP too, but those characters have a great deal of diversity. Feature more of the Lanes maybe, like Susie or Louis, rather than more Supermen imo.
