    Cesar Romero definitely captured the clown/ comedy side of the Joker which is how that role was written. Heath Ledger captured the homicidal maniac aspect. But I think Jack Nicholson captured both....

    Batman '66

    I checked to see if there was another thread about this. If there is, it's buried way back. This probably makes me a bad Batman fan or something but I'm enjoying the hell out of this series. I...

    I think both shows clearly have a plan and know where they are going. The Flash is a nice show to off-set the darker tone of Gotham though. It's amusing and amazing that a show about a guy who saw...

    I second that. If you watched the 1990s Flash show, Caitlin seems to fulfill a role equivalent to Dr. Tina McGee who I suspect the Flash would have hooked up with had the show continued. She even...

    I laughed at how the writer goes out of his way to make that ambiguous statement at the end where he could be saying this is in continuity so deal with it or he could be jokingly saying that...

    I was sort of thinking that too. This is the sort of thing people were saying when I was a kid, that Marvel went for characters with real human problems (or soap opera, depending on how you looked...

    All I can say is that I didn't see it that way. In terms of success, it seems to be the fourth highest ticket sales of any comic book adaptation behind Avengers and two Batman movies yet ahead of...

    I also like the Ang Lee Hulk, finding it very true to the comics. Banner was very much the personality of comic book Banner.

    Going back to the Silver Age, Hal Jordan, while wearing the Power Ring, gets knocked cold by a falling tree branch.

    It really sounds mostly like a statement of what sorts of super hero movies she likes more than anything else. WB should not make these movies because it will glut the market? Maybe Marvel should...

    True we could make a book out of the incredible if hilarious deductions that the Adam West Batman and Burt Ward Robin made.

    I see how widely opinions differ on the new show. Not surprising. One...

    Just caught up, watching the first four episodes in the last few days. I really like it. The funny thing is that, in a newspaper article I read, they went on about how it would be more fun and...

    There was a time, long, long ago, when Marvel did always seem to be a step or three ahead of DC but those days (and decades) are long over.

    I thought Marvel Ultimate Universe was a way of giving writers a means to mess with the origins and early adventures of the characters without rebooting their main continuity. With DC, you don't...

    That is the solution I would go with substituting something else for WWII just as some versions of Marvel substitute Hydra for the WWII opponents. I think it's called "The Sliding 7 year rule" (or...

    I enjoyed the "Young All-Stars" stories but I could never take them seriously because we all know that it was really Superman, Batman, etc. So, for instance, for me, Iron Munro was never anything...

    I would enjoy that as one version of him but, as THE main version, that would still have the problem that it's a total rewrite of his history when he doesn't even meet Lois, for example, until...

    I think what happens is, obviously, in the real world, we know Superman was the first comic book super hero. But that sort of carries over into the comics world in the reboots. People in the...

    I guess my honest question is, why would they "have to" do it at all? For instance, Marvel did quite well without rewriting their entire continuity. Now, you can throw in the more recent thing of...

    Hmm, by original or "canon", I probably meant stories before the first major reboot of "reality".

    Well, there you've got me. A lot of stuff done post-creators is considered essential to the concepts now. I realize "canon" is hard to apply to comic characters in the same way you would apply it...
