    Smartphones in at least the 90s? Er, those didn't exist...

    Superman being anti-machines or anti-technologies is like saying Batman is anti-people in suits and Arthur is anti-ridiculous helmets/masks. Clark just happens to fight robots and stuff, he's never been depicted as someone against those types of technologies.

    I still wouldn't expect to see Smallville be in that much of a bubble.

    What did you find appealing about Emotional Spectrum as DCs cosmology?

    That's revealed to be not the case though... unless it was changed midway because it doesn't make sense for Thomas Wayne to spur a rebellion in Santa Prisca?

    Wonder Woman's deadbeat twin brother was already mentioned.

    And I don't think anyone is in a rush to reference the Batman Bladder Spasm...

    Come to think of it, Animal Man's appearances in the DCU seem to ignore what happened to the character after Morrison's run, especially once his title joined the Vertigo brand and divorced itself from the mainline DCU - i.e. Buddy Baker makes an appearance in the final arc of Morrison's JLA that brings him back to traditional superheroics after some of the out-there directions his then-recent Vertigo runs took him.
    Wasn't that the case with Doom Patrol as well? Granted, Morrison's Animal Man and Doom Patrol were both firmly in the DCU whereas post-Morrison, they were spun off into the Vertigo imprint, where continuity goes to die.

    Ric Grayson is one of DC's greatest blunder, their greatest ones are Identity Crisis, Metal/ Death Metal and BWL.

    Ravagers might've worked if the cast wasn't Terra and Beast Boy + literally whos and had a better plot. The book left me with this question: if Terra and Beast Boy can carry a book with bad writing, imagine what could be done with them in a book with competent writing?

    New 52 Titans and Starfire's treatment are proof that Lobdell's success with Red Hood is a fluke, that book is almost competently written.

    Pretty good chunk of the New 52 when you think about it. Green Arrows was tossed from writer to writer

    I sometimes forget they tried to make hip, young, non-goatee Green Arrow a thing although only Lemire's run really stuck.

    True, but being skeptical of man's dependence on technology is'nt exactly unfounded. There can be other sources for Clark's insistance on it. You can use technology and still question it. Superman doesn't need wierd ironarmor to be cool. - Terminator is also about man vs machines.

    Regarding earlier comment about red tornado. While,i don't believe clark would attack iron giant, astroboy or red tornado for that matter because they would be alive. Clark wouldn't use them like mere tools. Heck! Clark might be the only one advocating for ai agent/robot rights. Superman was meant to be working class through and through. Also for clark, astroboy would be a real boy.

    Fine, superman loves technology. Must be why clark was racing bullets, trains... Etc. Intead of using guns or riding the train. Must be why he was catching aeroplanes instead flying inside. Superman makes tech look like it's useless. That humanity can achieve these feats through determination, sweat, perseverance... Etc. Superman picks a side.In this case, it is for human competence.

    I rest my case. This is all based on head canon. You're entitled to it but don't pretend it's gospel.

    The Unknowns...though I suppose it's possible there might be a re-attempt at it one day.
