    The sad thing, I think, is that most of the best villains are held by other studios. Doom, Magneto, Namor, they'd all make for great movies but Marvel doesnt own the rights.

    I think Ronan could...

    That's actually a good point.

    The issue with the big heavyweight and/or cosmic villains is that they're difficult to use on a regular basis. You make Brainiac the big bad in a few stories each...

    I thought it was okay. Some odd sequencing and pacing issues, and as someone else already said there were some inconsistencies regarding Slade's wardrobe (among other things).

    Still not even a...
  5. What Villains Could Carry Their Own Films?

    Title pretty much says it all.

    So, not too long ago I re-watched Iron Man 3 and the first Thor with my kids (just background noise to keep the baby chill while we cook dinner, really) and my wife...

    Geez, I remember not being impressed with Metamorpho, or the Metal Men. Beyond that it's even fuzzier. I dont recall Green Lantern or Titans leaving much of an impact on me, and the Superman tale was...

    In the 52, he's shown up in the pages of Earth-2. He didnt have a big role to play, and ended up getting shelved when the focus shifted to Bat-grandpa and Dark Superman, but I believe he's getting...

    Yeah, you can disagree with Didio's choices but he's got a pretty clear business model in mind, and its based off a critical analysis of the market, the demographics he can realistically reach, what...

    Man, I totally forgot about Wednesday Comics. Yeah, if you can find those, it's worth buying *just* for the Flash story. The Wednesday Comics thing was a newspaper-sized series of short stories that...

    Well, I've heard that kids are starting to make their way back into the hobby, due in large part to the digital releases. I dont know how true that is, or how many kids we're talking about to begin...

    I'd agree that the Avengers machine is more broken now than it was during Civil War. Civil War was based around some fairly straightforward politics; you either agreed with the Registration Act or...
  12. Seriously, why would you even ask that question?...

    Seriously, why would you even ask that question? The Grimace is eternal. I heard he made Galactus cry by calling him fat and then let the Supreme Intelligence copy his homework.

    The Grimace is the...

    Oh, I know. Im giving him the benefit of the doubt; there isnt one of us on these boards who wouldnt set some ground rules if we were in charge.

    I've worked as a commercial artist, so I dont have...

    Well, in DC's defense they were around for twenty-something years before Stan Lee got his hands on Timely and Marvel Comics was born. By then we had grown up a lot as a culture.

    Im assuming a lot...

    Well in Johns' case he does actually have a hand in the management aspect of the business. Whether that's a good thing or not really depends on one's preference for his particular style and emphasis....

    Well, first off I have to agree with most everyone else here; Messner-Loebs, Waid, and Johns all wrote some amazing runs, and I really enjoyed the Morrison/Millar stuff too, though they didnt stay on...

    Whether its a "good" thing or a "bad" thing is essentially irrelevant. It's what kids are watching and the comics industry, like all entertainment venues, has to work within the framework of reality...

    Oh yes, I could not agree more. He's the guy who, if DC just stays out of his way, could get the character back on top.

    Actually, I'd really like to see what Pak could do with Shazam for that...

    Gotta agree with everyone here; JSA is an absolute joy to read. Im not a die-hard Johns fan, and a lot of his work over the last few years has really felt underwhelming to me, but his JSA? Thats the...

    Ah, a Bronze Age-ish tone I could get behind, I got you now. Actually, I think we discussed that in a Superman thread not too long ago didnt we?

    I really dont think the "adult-only" stuff is as...

    I actually dont find any of this to be true. Lots of comics, from both the Big Two and the indies, are all-ages. From DC, and just out of what I personally read, Aquaman, Flash, Justice League,...

    This is true. Actually, my wife recently read an interesting article that delved into that topic. The study found that kids reject what their parents did/enjoyed as an aspect of self-realization. I...

    Seems to me the writers are writing stories featuring the characters they're paid to write about. Fairly sure that makes it a job. A thankless job, because comic fans are a spoiled and greedy lot...
