    Well. That's fast.



    I think they should be connected to the Red. I've seen posters here ask why everyone with a shared theme has to be tied to the same mythology, but I think it streamlines the...

    True, Supergirl is cancelled (though with the show about to begin I wonder for how long?) and Superboy was canned ages ago. I tend to forget/ignore the tangent characters when talking about the...

    I largely agree. The foundation is better than it has been in decades; arguably since Bryne's reboot in the 80's. And there have been some killer stories and stand-alone issues. The franchise has...

    Just an example. I know how fast a cheetah can run, so I use the cheetah.

    Works for me. Its a tradition at this point. My only hope is that when Cisco puts on a costume of his own, its someone else who calls him Vibe.



    Not everyone needs to be Superman, no, but...

    If there were any way to verify the data, then yeah it'd be a fine argument. Though I'd assume that if we could verify that data, we'd find that the costs are not any higher than they used to be, and...

    You know, a few pages back I asked to see the sales data which would prove the guy's point of view. As a business student, I find all this stuff lots of fun, and as a comic fan it just hits a little...

    "Mad" might be too strong a word, but it does irk me when people make judgement calls about things they know nothing about, regardless of subject matter. And since Superman is the most recognized...

    Yeah, same here. I havent enjoyed Superman this much since the Triangle Era, and it seems to me that the issue with the sales (which aren't amazing but certainly arent bad) has more to do with...

    Ultimately, I think it doesnt matter. Its been four years now and the details of Superman's death are still murky. We know it happened, at some point, in some fashion. We know that there's no way it...

    I dont really think so. How often has No Man's Land been referenced in the last decade? How often have those references really mattered to the story being told?

    The bottom line is, continuity is...

    That's the conclusion I've come to. It seems that whatever DC does, Superman sales remain relatively constant. That says to me that the readership they have now (likely a mix of older fans like me...

    Actually, aren't sales remaining relatively steady? If we were seeing a big drop in sales then you'd be onto something but from what I know (and I could be completely off the mark here) sales have...

    Well, villains aren't really built to carry their own titles. Not without turning them into softer, anti-hero versions of themselves anyway. Villains are designed to reflect a darker aspect of the...

    And this basically just brings us around to the old "which reboot method is better; DC or Marvel?" debate.

    Marvel ignores the history they dont like. Anyone remember the Punisher being a demon...

    I think it can, and has, been done very well and can, and has, added to the rich tapestry of DC's supernatural aspects.

    That said, christianity is still practiced today and is not exactly well...

    Well, its not too bad when things are going well. You can say "Hey, you liked your iPhone? Well here's a newer version that does all the same stuff but better!" and people will buy it. But in 2011?...

    And since Marvel's market share is shrinking as well as both major companies lose ground to Image, where's your criticism for Quesada? Marvel's lost ground to every single publisher there is, as the...

    Very curious about the creative team and direction. That's really going to cement how long I stick with the title, but it gets a first issue from me no matter what. I really, really want a good BP...

    It appears that during the early days of the (modern, 52 version) League, there was a team of young heroes made up of, basically, the classic Titans roster (we've seen hints of this in several...

    I'd say we're probably looking at about fifteen years total before the next reboot, depending on sales, inner management dynamics and how far DC allows their characters to evolve. They're not going...

    I could totally see him trying to introduce some sort of "Hero Registration Act" along the lines of what Marvel's Civil War was about. Of course, Lex would do a better job of it, spin it so the...

    My first thought was the Superior Spider-Man. They'd duke it out while their armies of hired minions throw down around them. Of course, the League of Assassins would make quick work of the...

    I really hate that we have no hard data on digital sales. Comixology was bought by Amazon, DC keeps putting out new digital firsts....we can assume its profitable, but I'd love to see the numbers.
