    When the idea was first announced, I disdained the entire concept. The execution has been done so well, however, that I've been able to overcome that initial disdain.

    If it hasn't happened yet, I'd *really* love for DC to reintroduce the concept of Oliver Queen's stupendous chili into the New 52.

    I must be a fool. Sooner or later, I always regret coming in here, but even so, sooner or later, I always do.

    I think you're being facetious, but there really are people who live that way...many of them, in fact.

    Yeah...I can't quite buy into the idea that the GL and Batman franchises were largely spared the effects of the reboot, not when there's plenty of evidence to the contrary.

  6. Can DCU sorcerers escape the Phantom Zone using their magical skills?

    Magic is one of the Achilles' heels of Kryptonians. For all their great power, Kryptonians don't have any natural defenses against the effects of magic.

    But what about the most advanced...

    I hope that someone will eventually write a story in which Kal-El discovers experimental Kryptonian technology that was being developed to counter magic at the time that Krypton exploded. ...

    Thanks.

    What doesn't add up for me, though, is that the claim the "GL mythos was unchanged by the FLASHPOINT reboot" and significant changes to Hal's experiences as Parallax seem mutually...
  9. So what exactly did the New 52 reboot do to the Hal Jordan/Parallax situation?

    It's often said that the FLASHPOINT reboot that created the New 52 DCU had minimum impact on the GL mythos (and the Batman mythos, but that's a different discussion). Let's examine how valid that...

    I wish we could get a SHAZAM '74 book too. I was first introduced to Captain Marvel/Billy Batson (and all American superheroes) through that Saturday morning live-action series myself.

    I'm a bit...

    I don't think it's going to be that popular.

    I just kind of laughed at the shirts and dismissed their absurdity myself.

    Just the notoriety DC has gotten out of it the past three years would has been worth the ride. I don't know what DC would have done during the past three years without the New 52, but I bet it would...

    Maybe not with the Anti-Monitor, however, because up to that point, none of them had ever encountered anything both as powerful and as evil as the Anti-Monitor. In terms of both power and...

    I think that with his armored shell breached, a potentially fatal blow could have been next for the Anti-Monitor (otherwise, no need to beat a hasty retreat).

    It *is* possible, however, for the...

    I didn't like JLU's interpretation of Superman (the guy had too much of a chip on his shoulder). Wonder Woman was OK, but sort of bland. I couldn't quite tell what her personality was like. She was...

    Superman and Wonder Woman as a romantic pair is not unprecedented, but this is the first time that it's been developed to such a great extent and in the regular, present continuity. I see it as an...

    Stories during the Silver/Bronze Age were easier to jump into because they were, at most, two or three issues long (and more often, self-contained in just one issue) and did not draw upon a...

    Having two sets of memories, however, could potentially drive a man insane. Years ago, we discussed this as a possible explanation for Hal Jordan's lapse into insanity during EMERALD TWILIGHT/ZERO...

    There's already been a visual retcon of THE KILLING JOKE; newer editions have removed the yellow oval from Batman's costume. :)

    Personally, I didn't like that minor adjustment; I tend to disfavor...

    It'd actually be kind of a cool story if Wally, Jay, Bart, etc., and all of Barry's old friends find him living in the New 52 universe...a world in which they either don't exist or exist as very...

    Additionally, if the previous DCU continued after FLASHPOINT, Wally, Bart, etc., must be going nuts wondering what happened to Barry because he's gone MIA again. After getting him back in FINAL...

    Few people seem to remember that the last page of the first issue of Wally West's FLASH series (1987) featured Wally staring at a bloody human heart inside a box.

    I wonder how stuff such as MOBILE SUIT ZETA GUNDAM and FIST OF THE NORTH STAR snuck in there. This seems to be a compilation of animated shows that were broadcast in the U.S. during the 1980s, and...

    Yeah...the 1960s Swan Superman looked middle-aged...closer to forty than twenty, and reminds me of George Reeves. Swan's Post-COIE Superman, at least judging from the few panels presented here,...
