    One of the best things about the New Age line was that, at the time, Marvel had gone off the rails a bit with many of their top end properties; the FF were missing, I believe, tons of legacy...

    From what I hear, and who knows how authentic or accurate that is, the film was originally hyped as Marvel's first foray into horror. Then they said there'd be some horror elements but it's not...

    I was a bit disappointed in Loial as well. I don't think he looks "bad" per se, but he is very underwhelming compared to the giant ogier of the novels. I get it; how many seven foot tall actors are...

    I don't think you can really apply moral relativity to alignment charts. Everyone is the hero of their own story. Like, the Hutts may be the lawful governing body of Tatooine (are they?) but Jabba...

    Cox reprising the DD role is surprising. Maybe it shouldn't be; the early drafts of Infinity War and/or Endgame included some of the Netflix characters after all, but I really didn't think Marvel...

    I think this would work well with the different "imprint" ideas being tossed around. You could have your "regular" DCU and your different tangent/variant DCU's too. That's a lot of variety and...

    Yeah I didn't think of it like that, but the Gods and Monsters stuff is kind of along the lines of a Silver Age rebrand. Someone mentioned Tangent too, which is a similar approach.
