    Again, its not about "gore". Its about theme, subject material, and tone.

    Mainstream, Big Two comics proved over twenty years ago that you can put all the gore you want into a comic and still...

    Gaiman would be amazing, naturally. And Ennis has a strange love for Superman, so I'd like to see that play out.

    For me, Robert Kirkman, of Walking Dead and Invincible fame, would be my top pick....

    Rogue. It seems like she doesnt fit in with the X crowd anymore and is only hanging around for nostalgia's sake. She has the power, the skillset, the experience....the only thing not in her favor is...

    Love it. Its better than I had expected it to be, as good as I could have hoped for.

    Gadot looks great, and I'm quite glad that everyone who has complained about how skinny she is can now eat...

    The fact that Johns is writing Superman and not you makes me sad.

    At the very least DC needs to hire you to consult. Because someone really needs to explain to Johns and Didio how Superman works.

    A "Mature" rating wouldnt just be for excessive language and violence though. A properly mature story would use mature themes, perhaps exploring Superman's impact on the world to a degree that an...

    Crap.

    The first issue (of Johns' run) was good, but not good enough I felt I had to keep up with it. But if you liked it....I may have to give this one more issue.

    Just to play devil's advocate, let's pretend for a minute that Carol *was* introduced in AoS. Let's say she got a nice little subplot going which introduced her, and during the course of things Carol...

    Yeah, Ive never understood this. Why is it that fans of Image and Dynamite and Dark Horse can accept a title changing and growing over time, but fans of DC and Marvel cant? You have to assume that...

    I read it several years ago and loved it. There were a few things, a couple nitpicks, that I didnt care for (Clark isnt written as being as intelligent as I'd like, and a few others I wont spoil for...

    You guys are taking that "millions of copies" line too literally. I didnt say they'd start selling in the millions again; those days are gone and likely never to return. What I meant by that was...

    Oh, it goes without saying that DC is as far from creative freedom (and hence, "indie") publication as it gets right now. You don't publish a new Bat-related book set in Gotham, within the main...

    Because she doesnt have forty years of history and her title started up less than a year ago. And she's taken the mantle of an older, established character.

    If this is Marvel doing what DC did...

    This doesnt sound much different from what DC did in the 90's when they killed Superman, broke the Bat, drove Green Lantern insane, and cut off Aquaman's hand.

    By the time the next Avengers film...

    Indie-Flavored DC; Would You Read It?

    So I was having this conversation about the Big 2 companies, their creative choices and limitations, the influence of editorial and all that. And I realized that what I really want is a small line of...

    As usual, I agree with Superlad, Dispencer, and Deniz. Not much to add that you guys havent.

    Other than this; you want an example of a supporting cast done right? Read Invincible. The supporting...

    Passing on Captain Marvel is never the right choice.

    .....

    Unless that choice happened to be the Infinity tie-in issue/s. In which case, yes you would have made the right call by skipping.

    I think that a lot of this sort of thing stems from the conflict between Superman the Icon and Superman the Character.

    Maybe this isnt the case with Blacksun in particular, I have no idea, but...

    Was it the UN? Its been a while, I forget. But even if it was (and I've no reason to doubt you) the UN isnt exactly trustworthy either. They created the JLI as a highly expensive propaganda tactic...
