    The OP doesn't really specify a time limit. He just says can WW with the Lasso wrapped around her resist the Ring.

    There are beings corrupted almost instantly by the Ring such as Gollum who...

    Eventually, sure. But there's also the Lasso of Truth which was part of the OP's scenario and is largely ignored. And why? because what it can and can't so is rather vague. Yeah, unlike the Ring....

    I'm no expert but I don't think he put all of his power into it. I'm not sure how much he put into it but it was portrayed as a good move. It didn't weaken him that much and yet allowed for him to...

    As I said, I know there were flaws in it but I was focusing on the big message or at least what the big message was for me.

    Sure, why didn't he just go back a little further and stop Luthor before...

    I like to think that most fans don't really care about these reboots or just consider the rebooted origins to be something read and dismissed and then back to reading Superman stories and he's been...

    I read some of the Golden Age stories a few years ago and got well into the era where he had all of the vision powers except heat, as well as the hearing and, though I didn't get to his first flight,...

    If I had the means, I would do a cut that literally cut out all the NG parts and just had the episode itself. I don't mind Jonathan Frakes playing Chef because then we could have speculated that he...

    And everything else? Although I guess we can now add "Neither sentient nor non-sentient" to it's list of undefinable qualities.

    As Madam-Shogun-Assassin said, "Darkness is relative". As I said, "I would also say that people measure how dark something is by who the main character is. Different expectations."

    Yes, it is...

    Cthulu is a metaphor for our deepest primal mortal fears but apparently superheroes can ignore that like fear is just a word. Because? Feats!

    This is Rumbles. We disrespect wonderful stories...

    This is true in my opinion. How does the ring work? People are saying WW resists because we want her to but nobody really gives any valid idea how the ring works. Not magic. Not telepathy. Not...

    That was Richard Roeper's review, that he would welcome a dark Superman movie but this wasn't just dark but almost joyless.

    At this point, I know someone will invoke the first flight scene and...

    You're right. When they show up, Doom pays them to take her back.

    As to Luthor, hasn't the battlesuit kind of become standard equipment for him again? At any rate, Luthor in the battlesuit...

    That IS an excellent point. I totally forgot that Jonathan Kent's voice is heard too. Which also raises a point. It may be true that Kal-El is really Superman and Clark Kent is just a disguise, a...

    For me, the issue was not so much Superman's portrayal but the attitude of many people I knew at the time who reacted as if this was always what Superman was. Maybe I was just hanging out with a...

    I would agree with this although I notice that when I was young- as in 18 or so- I thought soft reboots were fine and even loved the Post-Crisis reboot. But there's a point where there are so many...

    I would say that DC did its first reboot before Marvel- at least by that name- even existed since the Silver Age relegated the Golden Age to an alternate timeline.

    I also am not sure exactly...

    John Byrne was a proponent of what he called the Sliding Seven Year rule which is basically that all adventures within a comic company took place within the last seven years although some writers...

    I "get" what you're saying but, at the same time, look at Marvel. Tony Stark became a wise-cracking juvenile in the comics yet people, if they go back far enough, remember that he was a suave,...

    I think most of this comes from her own series and her inconsistent durability. When she fights Cage, she's fighting a guy with her strength or close to it and far superior durability. And he's...

    Unpopular opinion: Although I readily admit that the ending of "Superman" [the movie] had it's technical problems and flaws, it was dramatically a wonderful conclusion that I loved.

    I think the problem for me is that it's really hard to register what's happening in those team fights other than a glimpse here and there. Still, it's not just her skills but the fact that she took...

    With the lasso around her, it is constantly reminding her of the truth so this could be an endless stalemate where the ring never gains ground.

    In other words, I start reading a DC Comic again after only reading stuff like Batman '66 and WW '77 that are set in their own world only to find out that, in the main universe, DC is still the same...
