    Personally, I think that if they are altering the story to respond to Internet criticisms on message boards, they are already making a huge mistake.

    In fairness, when I read "Batman Year One", I thought that was a great Batman but not so for any of the DKR stuff.

    "No. That's not him." Strange. That was exactly my thought about Batman when I read DKR. :confused:

    On the armor, I was referring to the storm trooper body armor that seemed to not stop blaster fire and not even stop a hit from a tree branch swung by Princess Leia.

    There was a joke caption I saw...

    Better than average if he knows what he's up against.

    Since it's a scenario, anything could happen. If he gets the sort of lucky breaks he gets in his movies, he certainly has a better chance...

    Yeah, vehicles that can be tripped easily by vines and armor that doesn't seem to protect you from anything, even hundred pound women hitting you with sticks. I'm not liking the Storm Troopers...

    I suspect that most of the stuff that happens in comics would never get through the courts in a real world scenario.

    I don't think anyone is faulting Joe West who did everything he could to go through proper channels. The problem is that the world is just beginning to recognize that these super beings exist and...

    I'd even throw in the one live action DD you missed, the one from the 1989 television movie, "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk". Not that he brings anything in terms of physical feats but he has the...

    For the ordinary movie, yes. For certain movies like the MCU movies and the upcoming Star Wars, no, you need the size of the movie screen, the audio and the crowd experience. I say that though I...

    All right. Finally a payoff for reading the poem.

    But yeah, Heracles wins the battle. Heracles does fine against Grendel and company. Nothing there worse than the monsters he did fight. ...

    One of the reasons for going from Silver/ Bronze Age to Post-Crisis was the idea that the audience was growing up and not being replaced by a younger audience. Marvel had already caught on to that. ...

    My only real issue with what you said is that, IF they are doing a reboot, which they obviously have, why even do a reboot if you are just going to do an information dump the size of a set of...

    Thanks.



    I agree on that. Marvel, from what I've seen, seems to be replacing the Soviet Union with Hydra. For the Golden Age DC stuff, you'd have to have a similar, fictional world...

    I didn't think it was exactly bad and most of the criticisms are really not criticizing it on it's own merits but on the outside standard of the comic version. But it just didn't come anywhere near...

    While I wouldn't say they were the worst movies ever, the ones I wanted to walk out on were things like "Highlander 2" and the recent movie versions of the Green Hornet and Land of the Lost. Of...

    The only problem now is that there are too many "realities" that fans would insist remain the Main DCU which is where the lion's share of the comics would be set. At this point in time,...

    It's a good story. But it's impossible to not throw in astericks. "The Dark Knight Returns" was a good story but it can't work in the main DCU. KJ was good and it led to some great Barbara Gordon...

    I've read some of the early Superman stuff, the first couple of collections.

    For me, the issue isn't disliking the latest reboot. It's that it's one too many for me.

    Except, by that very idea, we would still be in the Silver Age or even the Golden Age. I mean, what? They think they can just undo decades of character development and making fans and then dump it...

    Truthfully, you lost me when you used "Grant Morrison" and "streamlined" in the same sentence.

    Don't get me wrong. I loved the idea of what Morrison tried to do with the Nu Superman, taking him...
