    Excellent points. I hadn't read those other titles, but you seem to have hit the nail on the head. Many a DC crossover plot has had contradictions...

    Thawne himself in this story said that he had been dead and would remain dead for awhile. Clearly, there is convoluted time going on, and he is...

    As I mentioned in my annotations, the players had, respectively, the city and colors of Superman and Batman. Curiously, the "Batman" player (black...

    Rikdad replied to a thread The Button Annotations in Batman
    He did four things: Rip up the letter, beat up Batman, (possibly) take the button with him to another time/place, and die. I agree that his beating...

    I'm looking at the art now, and I don't think it identifies her as Saturn Girl; it just identifies her as a Legionnaire. So she could be another...

    Rikdad replied to a thread Superman#21 in Superman
