    I've always liked Marvel characters and concepts, but I haven't been a fan of Marvel's *stories* (which was a big selling point for me back when I was a Marvel regular) since the time of the...

    You know who else is furious about the Knicks' pick?

    Or even well-substantiated and logically supported opinions...those are almost as bad as facts. ;)

    It was a frustrating experience most of the time. Half the time, you'd wonder if the thread you were interested in would ever load, and if you were fortunate enough that it did, you only had a 50%...

    They were also technologically outdated and poorly maintained.

    I think they see it as inconsistent with youthful adventure. If you look BEYOND superhero comics to other adventure fiction that young people are into, there is some consistency to this idea, and...

    I don't know if there was ever such a thing as a "marriage ban" for the DC characters, but the New 52 reboot resulted in a new continuity in which all of the main heroes were younger and at an...

    Flash/Green Lantern and Green Lantern/Green Arrow serve two completely different storytelling purposes. When Barry and Hal team up, it's about some wild, crazy, Silver Age superhero adventure. When...

    I think it's a matter of chemistry. Barry and Hal have always complemented each other well, and when they appear together, their stories somehow become much better than when either is on his own.

    Wally began his tenure as the Flash when Johns was in high school. Kyle was just starting out as GL when Johns was in college.

  12. Poll: Generation Silver Age - who considers it their favorite?

    Some criticize DC Comics' focus on the Silver Age characters to the detriment of the Golden Age and Modern Age characters (while often conveniently forgetting that the 20-year period from the...

    I think people have this misconception that if the Flash is anything less than super-serious, he MUST be Wally, not Barry.

    Granted, classic Barry was never a constant cut-up (then again, neither...

    When has it *ever* been a good idea to appease raging people...ranging from spoiled children to aspiring dictators? In all cases, it's a path to short-term relief and long-term grief.

  15. Baby Kal-El's arrival rocket: favorite design?

    Pretty much every version of Superman across all media originated with the Kryptonian child Kal-El arriving on Earth via a rocket ship, but pretty much each different version has had a radically...

    "Barry Allen is boring."

    Never has such a widely expressed opinion rung so falsely.

    I prefer Cary Bates' fifteen year run on THE FLASH (1970-1985, and yes, even the infamous TRIAL storyline) to the more acclaimed runs that came before and after his.

    On the matter of Hal/Parallax, the Kents (Post-COIE Superman, his Lois, and their child), Pre-COIE Barry Allen Flash, and Pre-COIE Supergirl...I wonder if their role is to parallel that of the Golden...

    More importantly, I don't understand this compulsion towards wanting Didio to explain EVERYTHING. Surely, a great part of the fun is being surprised.

    I'm not sure that's as widely shared a belief today as it was when Jason was first revived ten years ago. As recently as 2002, if you asked most people if fans would accept a revived Jason Todd,...

    That was good. A few details were a bit off, but otherwise, it was highly enjoyable and true in style and spirit to the original material.
