    I was just talking about what I'd like to see on Earth Two in another thread!

    Here's the pitch:

    Earth Two was originally an attempt to recapture the world of the Golden Age as a place you...

    97084

    All I have to say is, until we know for sure, I'm not getting excited.

    That's fair, I meant to say that I think the modern sense of mistakes as something you can't necessarily fix is more or less absent from the Golden Age. He rarely ever had a major lasting impact from...

    I don't think there's really any sign that Golden Age Superman thinks any of the things he does are questionable, and neither do versions of him based on those early comics. If he thought they were...

    I mean, when you're "Herculean" and you go up against "The Infinite", of course it doesn't look as impressive - but I'm okay with that. I like Superman to be ridiculously strong, but I do think the...

    That's basically where I've been on it this whole time.

    I want Superman to keep on dropping those anvils, as many times as it takes.

    Frankly, it's set in the '40s, but I don't think anybody thinks it's not about right now.

    Hey, no worries, just like I said, a little awareness is all I was really asking, and it sounds like you got it, dude.

    I don't think the Man of Tomorrow sees his super activities as "questionable"...

    I agree with all that; I think that basically Lois' personality is what makes her compelling, and the attempt to make her a top-tier physical combatant is frankly an attempt to compensate for...

    If somebody's complaining about Superman saving Lois Lane, then maybe they haven't been paying attention for the last eighty years, haha! He doesn't save her from every single mess she gets herself...

    Fact is, most of the more traditional "Silver Age Morals" that Superman is associated with have less to do with actual morality than they do with appeasing would-be censors. I do think there's a lot...

    I used to love the idea of the black-belt badass Lois Lane, but I've come around to thinking it's trying a little too hard. What makes Lois so cool is her force of personality and the way the...

    Oh yeah! Good catch, I forgot that! Wasn't the TV show Smallville filmed in Canada as well? Something to do with having a longer corn season than the American midwest, I think.
  14. I think your ideas are pretty reasonable overall,...

    I think your ideas are pretty reasonable overall, I just think a few times your passionate rhetoric can occasionally be a little inflexible, or maybe a little dismissive of other interpretations of,...

    The Golden Age Superman, or a contemporary twist on him, has been shown to work very well in the modern world, I'd argue better than the more "traditional" takes. Vigilantism is the norm for...

    Apparently it was Kansas in the film script, but that was the first time it ever had been, and the comics took until Byrne to agree with the movie.
  17. First of all, they still took him to an orphanage...

    First of all, they still took him to an orphanage first, and then went back to adopt him later. You can argue that the orphanage just didn't do the paperwork, but at that point I think it's more...

    One weird element of the radio show which add credence to manwhohaseverything's argument regarding the Golden Age: in the radio show, Superman is pretty much the same as he is in the Fleischer...

    He even has a social security number, which Mark Waid famously has memorized.

    The idea that CK has no legal existence is silly, and completely without grounding in any comic, show or story that I...

    Clark moves into the city at age 25 if I recall correctly from Superman on Earth. If he's 25 years old in 1952, then he was only 20 when the war ended in 1945.

    I am willing to say though, Clark...
  21. I think Clark/Kal/Superman's relationship with...

    I think Clark/Kal/Superman's relationship with his own identity is really simple to grasp and kind of hard to put into words.

    Clark Kent is someone he truly identifies with and as, but it's also...

    Isn't that the baseball thing a '90s development? Don't remember it coming up in the Golden Age Captain Marvel Jr stories I've read, but then I never read his origin story with Captain Marvel either...

    Earth 2 used to be a world where time could move forward, in contrast to Earth 1 where it stood still. Now time on Earth 0 moves forward, and I'd like to see Earth 2 repurposed as a world where every...

    I kind of liked Chat, from Marvel Adventures Spider-Man. I thought she was cool. I sort of miss her. I loved that series, over a decade ago. I like unconventional love interests sometimes, I guess?

    If we want to compare the Original Thanos, by Jim Starlin, with the Original Darkseid, by "King" Kirby, then I am here for it - though I have to admit, I have relatively minimal knowledge of Thanos...
