    One reason I've gotten interested in this title (other than its innate merits) is that it seems to be a key piece in the puzzle that is CRISIS 2015. I think hints and clues of what to come are woven...

    Jor-El, Uncle Ben Parker, and the Waynes have, but that's only because Superman's, Spider-Man's and Batman's mythos COMPLETELY DEPEND on the foundation of those characters being dead.

    A reason that this topic is especially interesting pertaining to Dick Grayson is that he's had a long, mixed history of changing identities. On the one hand, his transition from Robin to Nightwing...

    Using history as a guide, NEW TEEN TITANS/TALES OF THE TEEN TITANS didn't appear to suffer any sales detriment from Dick's transition to Nightwing back in the 1980s, so since the move didn't hurt...
  8. Dick Grayson's new status quo - "permanent," or short-term?

    Back in 1984, after more than forty years as Robin, the Boy Wonder, Dick Grayson made the then-rare transition into a new superheroic identity...Nightwing. When Dick exchanged the yellow, red, and...

    I guess it's a two-tiered question, with the first tier being whether Superman can just passively sustain such impacts without being harmed/thrashed and second, to what extent he can avert disaster...

    We'll take out Golden Age, as he's the least invulnerable and likely to fall to these vast forces.

    We'll go for:

    1). Silver Age, Pre-COIE Earth-One Superman

    For live-action media: Adam West's Batman

    It's an interesting thing to ponder, because in various comics, TV series, and films, I've seen flash floods unleashed by broken dams against various powerful entities ranging from Rom: Spaceknight...

    In most kinds of adventure fiction, however powerful or skilled a hero might be, he/she is generally powerless (or relatively helpless) against natural forces such as wind, water, earth, and the laws...

    The 1970s SHAZAM! TV show decided to cast Billy as a 19-year-old youth rather than a 10 or 12-year old boy. While that doesn't accurately reflect the old SHAZAM! comics, it did make sense for the...

    My personal wish list is short: YEAR THREE and the various stories (SWORD OF AZRAEL, etc.), that lead up to KNIGHTFALL, but somehow always fail to get included in the various collected editions.

    It sort of echoes Brainiac's role in the original 1985 CRISIS. That time too, Brainiac proved crucial to saving what was left of the Multiverse.

    Nothing in comics *needs* to happen, but it's often awesome when things do happen, and in retrospect, everybody is better off for it. FLASH OF TWO WORLDS was one such thing to happen.
