    Don't know. It would be odd if they would use characters that are as least as popular as Cyborg himself, as just his supporting cast, and I don't really see how that opens up new directions from them. I mean if they team up with him in Titans a book or a Cyborg book what is the difference.

    Superman's "arms race" with (The Real) Captain Marvel ultimately did the character more harm than good.

    I haven't enjoyed the DCEU post SS.

    I don't want a supergirl movie or a batgirl movies before Batman and Superman get one good movie in this franchise

    I don't think Batman has ever had the movie he deserves as a character.

    I don't really understand why fans are ok with Batman being beat up by regular female villains that don't have super powers but are so against the idea that Wonder Woman is equal to Superman in strength. Only one of these actually don't make sense since Batman and the female villains or regular humans and Superman/Wonder Woman are purely fiction based.

    Wonder Woman should work in the government and it would be a good compliment to Bruce and Clark.

    Cyborg is boring and I just don't like him.

    Lex Luthor in BVS made sense for this generation.

    WW should have taken place in modern day and not WW1 or WW2.

    Snyder had good ideas for the DCEU but he should not have been the director for those movies. He should have been chosen to work on choreography and as a producer.

    Vertigo's so called golden era is RIDICULOUSLY overrated. I had the chance of reading their stuff recently and I wasn't impressed. Outside of Doom Patrol, Astro City, Swamp Thing, Sandman Mystery Theater. Vertigo books were simply okay at best. Today's content from Image and Dark Horse would blow those books out of the water, in MY opinion. A friend is trying to introduce me to Shade, The Changing Man now and i'm just not interested.
    Imagine being proud to have negative traits. I canít relate.

    4 solid books like those is pretty great for a smaller imprint like Vertigo.

    I don't even recall any books outside of those four from those days.

    That's some big disrespect to Hellblazer.

    That said, if "just" Astro City and Sandman are you laurels, those are some gilded laurels.

    I don't see how that's supposedly "disrespect" A book can critically acclaimed all it wants. But if those books didn't click with me on any level. Then that acclaim is irrelevant to me. It is what it is. I won't apologize for how i feel.

    I hate that DC thinks they can sell us on product, rather than stories of great characters. Like when they advertise some new villian, or Crisis, or writer, or character return, or new battle armour, or even concept. None of that matters if you're not putting a good story together to go with it.

    It's like how Star Wars isn't about great quests being undertaken by great characters anymore. Now it's harping on specific things within the universe, like the Force, or the Skywalkers, or the history, or lightsabers. Too much pandering to the fans creates a lesser product IMO. You can't progress and flesh out an entire universe if you keep looking backwards, micromanaging, and including nauseatingly-overt "Easter eggs". Unless it can be done well 110%, some things should just be let go.

    I also hate that they think they can sell us alone on the history of the characters, like we're supposed to be awed just coz Superman or Batman is in something. If the characters have earned a tear or two from the public, then add it in by all means, but don't force it down our throats just coz you presume we love every incarnation of the character in every medium (Earned: the public's reaction to Superman's death in the comics. Unearned: the public's reaction to Superman's death in BvS.) Let's have more effort and less delusion and overconfidence.

    Also, there's that moment when you're a kid and you're suddenly not interested in the latest-craze Saturday morning cartoon that it dawns on you that you've suddenly grown up. I was like this for Rogol Zaar. Here's another humanoid villian of the week to come along and tell us that we don't really know the true history of Krypton. Yeah, whatever. Again you're looking backwards, lying to us and trying to sell us on shock value. There was this idea about comic book worlds rebooting every 7 years or so. Maybe that should be attempted so we wouldn't have to keep seeing lame villains being sold as new and original. I know that we have to consider the economics of all of it, but can't we find a way to have more fully-baked stories, stories that you can read over and over again and you actually want to own in Absolute format?

    I do not find your opinion controversial. I find it profound.

    SUPERGIRL (1984) is the best superhero movie ever!


    Superman and supergirl are constantly dumber and dulled so all you other DC fans can get a win with your favorite hero.
