    Ride, Bat-Hombre, Ride is one of my favourite Batman stories.

    Having read the story of Lord Death-Man in Chip Kidd's BAT-MANGA, I find that story remarkably similar to Death Knocks Three Times in...

    It matters to me and I'm sure it matters to Adam West.

    It matters to me because it was an important part of my childhood. I don't know who I would be without it.

    It has to matter to Adam West,...

    In my imagination, it would take a very powerful substance to have a hallucinatory effect on Superman. Any mind altering drug--including alcohol--is interfering with the natural processes of your...

    To be clear, Clark tried tobacco in that pipe smoking scene. You might want to put your own spin on it, but it was tobacco that O'Neil was critiquing.

    I took from that scene that tobacco would...

    Mickey Rooney's passing at a ripe old age brings up one of my peeves. The obits show Rooney in his advanced age. If it was me and I were famous, I'd want the obits to show me when I looked my best....

    How often does Lee ink his own pencils?

    Back in the old days, it was the job of the inker to do the chest symbol. That's how it's possible to identify some inkers, when there are no credits on the...

    I think Kirk Alyn looks a lot more like Superman than George Reeves. But I don't believe there was any way they could have gotten George to let a curl hang down over his forehead. Both as Superman...

    These are two different propositions for debate--

    One proposition can be stated like this: While there are certain details that have become signatures of the Superman character, on the strength of...

    Your argument--while it might contain a grain of truth--belies the reality. Look through your CHRONICLES or ARCHIVES. Superman always had a curl--the direction of the curl and the position of the...

    There's a fan edit for end of the aistle/last forever that's gone viral and it pretty much fixes all the problems that audiences had with the finale. It's been taken down from youtube, but it can be...

    The last few seasons spent a lot of time on Robin, yes. But that was to build up the reasons why Robin would marry Barney. They didn't do much to show why Robin and Ted should get back together. It...

    It's a framing device. Once you try to explain why Ted is telling the story (beyond the simple premise in the title) as the children do by telling old Ted why he's been telling this story for nine...

    I liked the reception and the scene at the train station. In my fan edit, those would be the two scenes I'd keep.

    Alternatively, since Ted somehow manages to gets the blue French horn twenty-five...

    I don't know about current continuity, but in pre-Crisis continuity Nam-Ek wasn't in the Phantom Zone. Because he couldn't die, he survived the explosion of Krypton. There was some mystery around...

    If you can imagine it, chances are it's been done. I'm not sure about the '40s or '50s--but I would guess there was at least one story where Bruce lost his fortune only to gain it back by the end of...

    One of the best martial arts TV fight scenes I've seen recently was on MURDOCH MYSTERIES: "Kung fu Crabtree." Mostly filmed with the actual actors in the scene rather than stunt doubles and using old...

    If you amalgamated Robin Hood, Hamlet, Robinson Crusoe and the Scarlet Pimpernel and updated them to the modern day, you'd have something resembling ARROW. I suppose that some of the villain list...

    How many of the main characters still really don't know Ollie is the Arrow? Moira? Thea? Laurel? Quentin?

    Who of them would be surprised by the allegation that he's the vigilante? That allegation...

    I think some people are giving Batman and Nolan too much credit for originality. We all know that Batman is derivative of many things. And while Nolan is an interesting director, he's not exactly...

    If Ted has to move on--and really he only has to move on because the finale imposes this death on his character--then I'm not convinced Robin represents moving on. What we're given makes it seem like...

    The way it should have ended is with the line (and with Bob Saget's voice) "And that kids is how I met your mother." A few brief flash forwards and one flashback maybe, before the meet at the train...
