    Funny observation.

    First, thanks for the laugh. I genuinely appreciate it.

    It's a funny observation that I can see to be true at times. But that doesn't change the fact that there are plenty of times that Swan's...

    And Swan's stuff wouldn't have been as dynamic. Swan was a great storyteller, but for me he wasn't always all that interesting to look at.

    I agree with the earlier poster, I would rather wait than...

    The minute I read Superman/Wonder Woman #1, I knew I was going to like the approach Soule brought to the table. I am a fan with what he has done so far.

    Superman/Wonder Woman is a book I look...

    Context of the panel above: Early in the 90's Action Comics went weekly, a book that featured 4-5 page stories about multiple heroes, the format lasted a half a year or so and one of the DC editors...

    Not for me. I loved this book. I think it is Jim Lee's best Superman work ever! Every thing about this book worked for me, from the story to the art to the multiple covers......I can't afford them...

    I think the other thing that remains interesting is the constancy of Spiderman. If the poll were conducted with younger age groups, I think he would be number 1.

    It's funny how this survey doesn't...
  7. Sticky: Poll: Why is it taking so long to finish Forever Evil?...

    Why is it taking so long to finish Forever Evil? It's good.....but sheesh......could we drag our butts any more?

    The Blight storyline ended very satisfactorily....why couldn't every thing else?

    I have enjoyed Hickman's work on these books. I thought "Infinity" was as good a mega crossover as any Marvel has produced. It gave us two classic Thor moments in the very least. I think its my #1...

    And here is the antithesis: "Just because we are making changes, it doesn't mean they are going to work to tell a better story."

    You are right about Joss Whedon being a top grade talent that made...
  10. Maybe....but we aren't talking about the Joker...

    Maybe....but we aren't talking about the Joker now, are we? Kane isn't the bad guy just because he got credit for it. I fault Stan Lee more for taking too much credit for Spiderman, FF, etc.. because...

    And yet, in each of those changes I can show you how the core concept remained intact. The latest version of Spiderman is a disaster in my mind because the core idea of Peter being the kid that was...

    I am not complaining at all about a multiracial family, you don't even know me. So don't go there.

    I said in my previous post, directly above the one you commented on that it wasn't the ethnicity...

    And if Sue was portrayed this way....fine....but I'm sorry, the actress they picked to play Sue doesn't even resemble the actor they picked to play Johnny. And adopted doesn't work for me....too far...
  14. What he said....

    This is exactly my first thought. Johnny is black? Great idea. But Sue is white? What? This is as far off concept as Galactus was in the sequel, or giving Doc Doom powers....

    Completely...
  15. Some thoughts....

    I really agree with your point of view on this. I don't recall if you liked the Byrne/Ordway version of Superman or not, but Superman is a lot like what you describe here. I always thought the Post...

    I am excited about the art. I would have picked a different writer. I think JRJr worked best with Dan Jurgens on Thor and I would have loved to see their Superman.

    I am not surprised to see Geoff...

    NO CONTEST!!

    Clancy Brown all the way. Just the scene in the first three parter(or movie) where Supe's is outside his skyscraper window and he says, "We already have a window washer."

    That's...

    okay....now I remember some of it any way....

    Thank you for that recap....no joke. As I was reading it I started to remember some of it from various issues. Do you like that origin? I don't. In fact it sort of supports the whole notion that I...

    I am looking at this and remembering an interview with Hickman saying that this was really only part one of a much bigger story. So the title of the mini series might be clearer as Hickman starts to...

    Just because I like talking about great Superman vs. Luthor throwdowns....

    I remember Luthor in the Silver Age mostly in Grey prison suits. Great stories Superman #164 and #167.

    This issue appears to be a cross over story with Teen Titans maybe....but I missed the reference to where the story was continued from. It is probably the best example of what is wrong with this...

    I have absolutely no problem agreeing with you. H'el was a good Superman story. It has it flaws, but I was entertained.

    Mixed Bag

    I second this opinion. It does start out great...a couple of (what I think are) mistakes I can point to: putting MonEl as the star of the Superman book...and then giving him sucky stories. The way...

    I really like what you say here and I agree with it. And, wow, you must have done some research to get those lines out of the old TV show. I remember Superman visiting Lucy in "I Love Lucy" and I...

    My take on the Wildstorm stuff is a little different. Hellespont could be a formidable villain. The problem is that I have yet to see a major story arc completed with him at the center. He was here,...
