  1. Correct, which is why dinging Aquaman over this,...

    Correct, which is why dinging Aquaman over this, despite being older than Black Panther, is kind of ridiculous (and most likely telling regarding that critic).
  2. That's why DC should send all of these outlets...

    That's why DC should send all of these outlets the history of their characters so this crap gets nipped in the bud.
  3. That might be true, but people have eyes, too. I...

    That might be true, but people have eyes, too. I don't know how anybody watching a few matches could think they were viewing something seriously. Besides, Latka Gravas was a wrestler for a time. How...

    It was actually brilliant, since she knew Veronica Lake would get the blame instead of her. :)

    Yeah, I remember all of that. Those fans were just plain bonkers.



    Pedro Morales, Trey.
  6. That's another thing: I can't believe people...

    That's another thing: I can't believe people thought wrestling was real, either. It was patently obvious to me as a kid it was fake and I'm not a super genius by any stretch of the imagination.
  7. I still don't understand people thinking Clark...

    I still don't understand people thinking Clark was actually dead for good.
  8. Lightning Lad is the only other one I can think...

    Lightning Lad is the only other one I can think of, Trey. All I know is my generation wasn't in any way cynical about character deaths back then. If someone died, we assumed it was for good.
  9. Alfred's reincarnation was a rarity pre-COIE,...

    Alfred's reincarnation was a rarity pre-COIE, FWIW. Post-COIE, totally different story.

    But only if their favorites are comfortably in the saddle (though there are exceptions to that rule like Carabas).
  11. So do the ones I frequent, FWIW.

    So do the ones I frequent, FWIW.
  12. Despite all of that paste, can PPP keep that bag...

    Despite all of that paste, can PPP keep that bag of money shut tight? Of course not.
  13. Well, I guess that's what happens when the...

    Well, I guess that's what happens when the percentage of kids reading comics today is low.

    Superman (Kal-El)
    Nightwing (Dick Grayson)
    Red Tornado (John Smith)
    Martian Manhunter
    Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes)
    Green Arrow (Oliver Queen)
    Black Lightning
    Deadman
    Supergirl (Kara Zor-El) ...

    Is it possible? Yes. Is it probable? Nope.

    40 years ago, my LCS had the more risqué stuff (Vampirella, National Lampoon, Heavy Metal, etc.) in a box near the counter. Now it wasn't off limits to 12-year-old me, but it also wasn't prominently...

    Of course, this kind of defeats the purpose for the vast majority of people who like Hal only as Parallax. ;)

    Besides, if it can be done for someone you hate, it may also be done for someone you love down the road. ;)

    The latter might have indeed worked. Instead, we got Hulk Hogan turning into Hollywood Hogan.

    Basically this. If that's the case, just kill him off instead and give him a dignified send-off.
  22. Okay, but there has to be an example of this...

    Okay, but there has to be an example of this happening in the past. Again, I can't recall one, but I admit to not being an expert in economic history.

    Let me just add: I think any of this...

    While I don't see this happening at all in regard to DC, I agree with you, Trey. I can't think of a suddenly-new monopoly going out of business myself.

    See, the latter is far, far worse to me than the former. Any superhero of long standing going berserker like that is just anathema to me.

    Hal as Parallax permanently? He should never had been Parallax at all. In fact, no superhero should have to suffer that, unless it's a situation, i.e. Terra, where she was created to turn bad in the...
