    I think you knew what I meant. ;)



    The JL has, on average, DC's most popular characters and at their physical peaks, so that's why there at the top of the heap. I won't say it will always be...

    The question to ask is: which group would the president call first? Unless it's the Maxwell Lord version, the JL would be #1 on the list.

    If the show had been The Flash popular, it probably could have weathered this particular storm. Since Batwoman was struggling already even before Ruby exited stage left, the odds don't look good for...

    Yep. It's the way it is within the fictional universe, too.

    I only have heard the word used for fast superheroes myself. Most likely kids of my generation who never or rarely read comics would have reacted the same way as your friend.

    That's a good question, Jim. It was kind of passe when I was kid back in the '70s.

    It actually goes back a little over a hundred years ago as a term for that era's fast cars, FWIW.

    I had the same problem as you, Jim, but I have been catching up with my reading to the point I have read almost all of the books in my personal library now.

    As for Vanity Fair, it's a great book!

    I started reading DC back in '73 and stopped buying all comics about 9 years later, but not because I had any problems with the content. No, was peer pressure that killed my interest. Back then,...

    Yeah, but at least there's some time involved before it happens (even if we're not witnessing the training from beginning to end).

    Obviously, it's nor hard becoming Batwoman on this show. ;)

    There is and I was going to merge this one with that one yesterday, but this thread isn't solely post-DCU bashing. Therefore, I'm going to leave it for now.

    I don't think there's any doubt the Flash would have been off TV had movie projects needed him six years ago.

    I thought it was done as well as it could have been, though that was still not enough. I know teens do stupid things, but man!

    Then you have someone like Ricardo Mpntalban who was Mexican by birth, but Spanish by ancestry.

    Going over the thread thoroughly, it appears it's not the usual "DCU great - everything else stinks" discussions we have been seeing here for almost ten years. Therefore, I won't merge it with the...

    Except there is a thread for this already, so this one is redundant. Don't be surprised if it's merged with the other one before noontime. ;)

    Yeah, the idea that the show is somehow different from the other CW superhero shows is baffling to me. Other than budgetary concerns, I'm not expecting any changes thematically.
