    Controversy implies there is controversy and groups with different opinions. Controversy is different from being flat out wrong :P

    We need to differentiate “good” from “I enjoyed”. For instance, I enjoyed the heck out of Batman Forever, but I can accept it was a qualitatively bad movie.

    What I enjoyed about the Vertigo imprint is that it revived DC's mystery and horror features that had been king in the 1970s. It allowed an alternative to all the super-hero comics (although it had a few super-heroes mixed in with its offering--DOOM PATROL, ANIMAL MAN, INVISIBLES) and it gave opportunities to creators who had other ideas that wouldn't fit in a super-heroes shared universe.

    The strength of DC to me is that it has offered so much variety throughout its history--you could get every kind of comic book from them in their glory days. I like super-heroes as much as the next fella, but a steady diet of them gets tiresome.

    Hey thanks. I suppose I'm just summarizing what every superhero movie podcast rant is at its core.

    Is isn’t wrong because YOU and others say so. If Linda Lee feels that way, then that’s HER business. At the end of the day, it’s preference.
    Imagine being proud to have negative traits. I canít relate.

    DC: Justice League, The Flash, Justice League Dark, Superman, Action Comics, Green Arrow, Justice League Odyssey, The Terrifics, Teen Titans, Titans, Brimstone, Female Furies, Damage, Heroes In Crisis

    Marvel: The Punisher, Cosmic Ghost Rider, Venom, X-23, Cloak and Dagger, Jessica Jones, Sentry

    It's puzzling to me that Flash can be the fastest superhero, and Batman can be the best Detective/Tactician, but Superman being the strongest guy, without having to share that title with anyone, is a problem.

    If Super Strength was Superman's sole, standout power no one would criticize or care. The Flash's thing is super speed, Batman's thing is being super smart. Superman's thing is being super strong, super fast, super smart, super empathetic, laser vision, flying, freeze breath, super hearing, x ray vision...

    If he was just strong that would make sense but he is also strong and has laser eyes and is the second fastest and is indestructible and etc.

    Superman is and should be the ultimate tank. Tank that is connected to everything through his supersenses.

    I think kon/Conner Kent should be even moreso this than superman, with his control over his bio aura, but should be frozen age wise to 18 to 21.

    Cyborg is not the only Cyborg around, but he should be the best. Hell hank henshaw has been shown to be insanely powerful just by using his Cyborg side.vic should "Atleast" be every bit hanks equal cybernetics to cybernetics, minus the superman side. He should be the ultimate mix of cybernetic offensive/defensive adaptation and pure total linked in, as much as any movie we see where the artifical intelligence has total knowledge and control over everything.

    Wonder woman should be as strong as Hercules, which means she should be in supermans strength class, but not his durability, speed, flight, energy, and senses level at all. She is a Amazon for a reason,the movie did a good job of this.

    Limited series or series that are set up as volumes should be on "real time", and the continuous comics every Wednesday should be moving through time, but not getting anywhere, as in having Christmas specials but not for 2018 or 2019 specific.

    I'm happy that we are getting so many comic adaptions, even though many are not my cup of tea.

    And what these other posters are forgetting conveniently is that the flash and batman are not just 1 trick ponies either. Flash can do just about anything and batman is batgod

    Anyone can do anything given enough narrative flexing. The point was about generalizations and absolutes.

    I'm not sure what has been more damaging to Batman: the batgod concept or the Batman is a broken hero who can't save anyone and makes everything worse.
