    Oh, I absolutely agree that both versions are "worthy". And you guys know I love me some t-shirt and jeans, angry young man hero of the people Superman. But the Superman I see in my head? He's been...

    A while back WB opened up a new "Fanfic" deal with Amazon (if I recall the details correctly) where certain properties (including Buffy and Smallville and Gossip Girl maybe?) were available for fans...

    It seems to me that DC has long struggled to truly identify its demographic. They know that kids arent reading, but they tend to avoid fully adult themes like marriage and kids, for fear of...

    Nah, I dont mind answering. :)

    I'm in my early 30's (not old enough to be President yet though), married, with one kid who came with the deal and one I made myself (my wife helped). But the draw...

    Basically agree with Manofsteel on everything.

    Except the new power. All in all, that's in my "Good" category. Sure, "Solar Flare" or "Super Flare" or whatever the hell they're calling it is...

    The thing with Superman is that yes, a lot of his biggest villains are Justice League caliber. And he deals with them on his own most of the time. Thats the imbalance that lead to the de-powering...

    That's a good idea. You should totally start that. And when you do, please let them know that there's at least one fan out there who supports the character, but doesnt tweet and sure as hell isnt...

    Well, first off, I agree with Superlad that a "Man versus Environment" story has a lot of potential. You can do an awful lot with that. But at the same time, a superhero film is, at its core, an...

    This is what really made me sad about that dynamic. The idea of the hero's parents being alive is so rare it's almost a novel concept, and post-Crisis, I think, started out dealing with that fairly...

    This isn't Dungeons and Dragons, these characters do not have set-in-stone abilities that define what they're capable of. There's a difference between narrative tool, and a character's fictional...

    Well.

    So I wrote this whole thing, but deleted it because it all boils down to this. The first episode introduced a well designed (re-imagined) and interesting character, in a pretty lackluster...

    No, these characters are as useful as the writer writes them as being. Just to use the same sort of logic here; Batman *should* be useless to the Justice League. Most battles are so intense a regular...

    As you say, its about a guy who turns into a swamp monster....why do you need more than that? :)

    Seriously though, Swamp Thing was a great book. Well worth reading, though it drags a bit...

    We meet her in the last arc of Supergirl. She's a few years older than Kara, attending a cosmic-level "superhero university" and something similar to the Dean's assistant. She's basically a lot like...

    Very true.



    I'd be fine with fashion design as her major. Seems like a nice update. And I dont know what kind of women you run with, but I cant think of many I know who needed a reason to...

    It's not that the Kents being alive doesnt offer anything from a narrative point of view, its just that them being dead offers more.

    It is true that a hero having parents who are alive, and...

    Voted like a boss! Right now Carol's only 00.3% away from tying Rogue for the win. Come on, this is important! Not like a Presidential election at all! Make sure you vote! :)

    No, Ive just always assumed that comic books were biographies with lots of pictures and I just live in a really, really quiet corner of the world? :)

    With Maxima, I think a great option would be to leave her as she's been introduced; the dutiful royal heir apparent who will, if she must, marry and make little royal babies, but really likes girls...

    Yes, I'd say that letting a highly trained and well equipped sixteen year old fight a mass murderer who has no powers or fighting skills worth mentioning is better than letting that same kid fight a...

    Personally, I welcome the change. Mari being a model doesnt seem like it offers a lot, aside from a high-paying job that allows her to travel a lot and enjoy a good amount of free time. Lots of jobs...

    With regards to the Kents, I think they serve the narrative best when they're dead. Having them alive offers virtually nothing that couldn't be accomplished otherwise. If you want Clark to have a...

    No. An underage, powerless, relatively inexperienced child should not be invited to battle higher dimensional beings, rogue gods, and sentient viruses. I mean, geez, why not just elect a teenager as...
