    Ystina might well have been considered a replacement post Flashpoint. But with Doomsday Clock, etc. maybe messing with the Golden Age, who knows?
  2. Ystina was a different character. She was brand...

    Ystina was a different character. She was brand new and nothing about her linked her to Justin's experiences except for the name. Now what her role was intended to be nu52, if any, who knows?

    That's why I said most of the Squadron. The major JSA members certainly aren't obscure.

    Based on what I've seen and read, it's possible a few creators might have jokingly put "gay" content in books, but it's extremely unlikely they seriously intended any of their characters to be gay. ...

    I'd put Danette's popularity against Rod's any day. Impuning Danette's fame actually hurts Rod's even more. He was far from a major character by any stretch of the imagination.

    Obscure is a relative term. To many DC fans. most of the All-Star Squadron heroes are considered obscure. One's individual awareness of a hero doesn't mean everyone else has that same level of...

    OK, then, Comet.

    Congratulations to foxley for a cover which evokes my memories of Highlights and things like that. Thank you for the efffort you also put in each week coming up with a fitting verse to accompany...

    Fraction's FF run (with Mike Allred) was on the goofy side as many of Allred's projects can be. It has been somewhat polarizing (IM dislikes it; I quite liked it) but in most regards was favored...

    No one here is looking for a poorly done story to fit a theme. DC's had enough success with me on their JSA/Earth Two/whatever franchise that I'd give anything a try. As those of you who have seen...

    A modern look at old characters is not going to be old style. Those characters are going to be in longer stories and will probably change and develop. I'm curious if other modern adaptions of old...

    I'm hoping Ben and Johnny at least get confirmation Reed, Sue, and the kids are OK, even if unavailable. I'd like to see it at the end of issue 6 since it is titled "Fate of the Four". And it's Ben...

    The Golden Age with its plethora of 6 to 8 page stories and the constant reset to point one with no actual development of characters is the complete opposite of long-term developmental story-telling....
  14. Indeed. Next time, bring actual reasoning.

    Indeed. Next time, bring actual reasoning.

    Danette wasn't a contradiction in anything that had been published, but then again, in actual cases of hidden sexualities, neither were some of the Golden Age characters. And the Spider was...

    Which is why the selection of characters is important. The point is that there were NO signs and this wasn't a possibility even well into the modern age. And no matter what you do, you risk failure...

    We've touched on these issues before and the discussions have always been fun and enlightening. We drank the comic book science kool-aid but still try to explain these things. And I'm OK with that.

    I rewatched the old original Invisible Man movie and they did mention food needing to digest to become invisible as well. Even old time movie audiences have these questions. I'm going to address...

    That's your argument? How the character was created? Rod Reilly never had a sister in any of his original stories. The original writers never gave him a sister. But a sister given to him decades...

    Amazing Man and Tsunami were big steps towards reflecting some of the issues of the day. If talking about race, new characters are probably the best way to go. Making Sandman out to be black and...

    nx01a 'cuz that was an incredibly funny issue and despite its plethora of fans, still doesn't get the accolades and laughter it deserves.

    I immediately wanted to hate this idea. But if the chances of getting Gaiman to finish fade to nothing, then I'd actually support this. A new Marvelman in Trump-era America.

    I do have issues...

    The waiting is frustrating. From my personal view, I'm a JSA and Legion fan so I'm naturally waiting on each issue of Doomsday Clock. My number of DC books I'm reading is dropping quickly and may...

    Now was this multiverse the one set up when Convergence affected how COIE went down? Personally, I've head-canoned an infinite multiverse which only varied by how easily folks got from universe to...
