    It was Lynde's voice and personality. There was something magnetic in it, but there was always something off about it, like it was sassy or creepy, especially if you compare his delivery to evil...

    But if you look back at the history of New 52 DC, there's an incredible amount of secrecy when it comes to projects: the "execution" of Catwoman in Justice League Of America, the solution to "Trinity...

    Thanks. I think the reason they went with "Earth Prime" instead of the traditional "Earth-1" is the line of original graphic novels they have under the "Earth One" banner.

    It's understandable from...

    Close but not quite. Batman/Superman establishes that Earth-2's wonders appeared years before, but only Earth-1 would have the power to stop Darkseid. When Darkseid shows up months later, Superman...

    Earth 2 is supposed to be bleak. Batman/Superman...

    Earth 2 is supposed to be bleak. Batman/Superman defined Earth-1 as the only world who will be able to resist Darkseid when he comes; as a result, Earth-2 suffered a great loss and is still a target....
  6. But right would mean the structure of the Corps...

    But right would mean the structure of the Corps was faulty somewhere, and it wasn't. The only thing flawed is Hal Jordan's leadership, but even then there was no way of foreseeing the end of the...

    Winning the box office for Captain America: The Winter Soldier isn't saying much, when Transcendence's television commercials aren't enticing and the rest of the competition gets little to no...
  8. Starfire wasn't a normal teenager from the...

    Starfire wasn't a normal teenager from the beginning. The ones who were teens were Kid Flash, Robin, Wonder Girl, Aqualad and Speedy and mostly because their adventures in the 60s dealt with...
  9. Starfire and Wonder Girl are two very different...

    Starfire and Wonder Girl are two very different situations.

    Starfire always had a very strong T&A component. Just look at her classic uniform. The cartoon did her a dramatic disservice by...

    Muscles. Most men don't have chests like that: those that do spend all day in the gym. And the few that aren't Peter Parker, Reed Richards are super skinny and scrawny. There's no average male...

    And yet, I would still argue that the argument is a straw one based on the fact that the presentation of Cassie is completely in keeping with the presentation of young women in magazine publications,...
  12. I wasn't talking about the physical...

    I wasn't talking about the physical manifestations, I was talking about the powers behind them. Beast Boy was red because he tapped into the power of The Red, which was the life force of animals....
  13. I think you and the author of the original...

    I think you and the author of the original article are seriously overstating the power of that nostalgia.
    There is absolutely no evidence that fans of the adaptation buy the comic product: in...
  14. That is very true. However, Teen Titans is a book...

    That is very true. However, Teen Titans is a book that demands to be in that last category. It's a nostalgia title, not a new character or direction for the book; in fact, I don't think any of the...

    Funniest statement I've read all threat.
    Teen Titans is a relaunch of a book that failed with no indication that there will be a dramatic shift in tone to make it more enjoyable than the last...

    Actually, there was a good reason: universality amongst the various threads in DC.
    Swamp Thing and Animal Man both identified Red as animal life and Green as plant life.
    Having a green...

    In my experience, the hate is now ignored by the companies. Certainly, criticisms over poor storytelling or arbitrary changes are ignored, and there have been individuals in the industry (or related...

    Actually: yes. If you go back and look at the opinion articles here on CBR, they are all deliberately aimed at inciting charges of both industry and readership as 'out of touch.'

    It's one thing...

    I may be in the minority here, but I kind of like having Waller in the field. She is a tough-as-nails warrior you don't want to cross, kind of like a female Samuel L. Jackson, and that's someone who...

    Marvel's had the same issues too. This is, what, the second new Ghost Rider in five years? The first was a woman, now we have a hispanic male. And Miles Morales isn't exactly burning up the sales...

    It was much better in pre-52. Blue Beetle somehow was able to capture the feel of a teen hero, beloved by friends and family, who feared the power and was excited to be a hero. It was a small-feel...
  22. They took everything good in Static Shock and...

    They took everything good in Static Shock and tossed it out the window, then loaded some extra generic stuff and dropped out there with poor promotion.
    Blue Beetle also lost something very key to...

    What effort do you mean? Killing the lead characters and replacing them with minorities who happen to have the same powers and/or personality and/or interest, just to peak an event? :wink:
    ...
  24. Again: you miss the point. The Justice League is...

    Again: you miss the point. The Justice League is what DC sells as its biggest and best. Everyone else is B-tier or below. And in that A-list, the number of females is one Wonder Woman. Every other...

    She's 18. And she wasn't in the Teen Titans cartoon: of the cartoon, only three Robin, Beast Boy and Raven are there. Which is less than they have of the Young Justice lineup too.
