    To me, it's because Barry is so much one of *us.* He's the fanboy who got to live the fanboy dream, and has a blast living it. To me, Barry is much more relatable than characters that, supposedly,...

    Hmmm. I guess, though I figured the "Stamina of Atlas" would have been sufficient to take care of it.

  4. Amazo Virus (current JL story): why does it affect Shazam, but not Superman and Wonder Woman?

    In the current "Amazo Virus" storyline in JUSTICE LEAGUE, the Amazo Virus has taken down many people, including powerhouse metahumans such as Shazam. Superman and Wonder Woman, however, have not...

    Joker made it to the Batpoles in the BATMAN (1960s) TV series, but I don't think he got all the way to the Batcave proper.

    I think that was an homage to Lois taking down Ursa in SUPERMAN II, except Iris nearly broke her hand as a result. :)

    I would agree with this idea. No two fans are made alike, and the best the publishers can do is hit the target as broadly as possible, and even when they succeed, they'll miss much of it just...

    Yeah...as some in this thread have alluded to, Eddie Thawne seems to have many characteristics of the classic comic book version of Barry Allen (e.g. the Silver/Bronze Age version).

    Eddie Thawne is such a likable character that you really hope that the show DOESN'T turn him into a villain/Reverse Flash, even though his name seems to telegraph that fate.

    For BATMAN, it's pretty easy: 1969, when the last vestiges of the TV series disappeared from the comics, and Dick Grayson left Wayne Manor for Hudson University. It was a pretty clear-cut...

  14. Did Robin/Nightwing ever use the "Holy ____, Batman!" expression after the Silver Age?

    Robin (particularly Dick Grayson's) use of the catchphrase "Holy _________________, Batman!" is a well-known artifact of the 1960s BATMAN TV series and the Silver Age BATMAN comic books that...

    Larry Hama is an excellent writer in his own element, but he just can't do Batman right for some reason.

    Lex, seriously, take that off before one of the mods catches you. You're too valuable to the community to just let fall to the mod hammer like that.

    Had Barry's "death" lasted a mere six months or two years, I might agree it was another "gimmick death." The fact that it lasted an incredible *25* years is what gave it depth, significance, and...

    The "long run" was too long to be concerned with. Barry's "dead" period provided about a quarter century worth of great Wally West as the Flash stories, and only after that had run its course did...
