    Comics are a bit like wrestling. After a while, you just know the drill.

    Oh, dude... I forgot about that until just now. Ouch.

    Also, wait, wasn't it *not* Clark Kent? Didn't he change his name or something? I forget.

    Ah, you remember the Kenny Bravermen storyline where Clark had to go on the road with everyone and change his name for a spell. I've forgotten what it was too.

    The further down this rabbit hole of memory you guys are going, the more you're burying yourselves with your own word choices. I recommend digging the dirt out of your ears so you can hear yourselves speak. It isn't pretty.

    I meant nothing harsh by it, but I apologize.

    Is this normal? Where the inevitable ever-offended person comes into a peaceful conversation and starts nitpicking about harmless things they find un-PC and what-not? Should I expect more of this down the line? I was beginning to wonder why everyone was so nice and calm. I wasn't expecting it.

    Sorry. It's not usual for me to interfere. There's lots of un-PC language on these boards. The mods will sometimes let you guys know when you've carried it too far. I may have jumped the gun, but I felt strongly about this one and didn't feel like I could let it pass without voicing my objection.

    You're relatively safe to say whatever you want. But speaking just for myself, I want other people to feel safe, as well.

    I don't think Jim was necessarily offended (Can't speak for him), however he raises a good point that we should try to be mindful of what we say to a certain degree. We should try to stay welcoming, friendly and calm to everyone, and that is part of doing that IMO.

    I'm guilty as anyone of using un-pc language,but I always try to police myself. I see us all as friends having discussions here (yes, even when we may disagree) and we should try to keep things as friendly and drama free as possible.

    Alright, guys. You're right. I'm new here and certainly don't want to be outcast on day one, so forgive me.

    That being said, could we come up with another adjective to describe Clark Kent's early 90's ponytail? I propose "lame."

    Lame is good. The glasses are hard enough to justify as a disguise, but to have superman show up with long hair, and then suddenly Clark Kent has a ponytail. ..and no one seemed to notice.

    Ah...gotta love comics.

    I always found it hard to reconcile the John Lennon from 1963 with the John Lennon from 1968. One had relatively short, dark brown hair and a chubby face. The other had long dirty blonde hair (sometimes pulled back in a ponytail), round-rimmed glasses and a gaunt face. Were they really the same person?
