    Even the fiercest professional rivals can be the closest friends. In fact it happens a lot. There are few people you have more in common with in terms of life experience than someone you compete with in the professional arena. They're the ones you go have a drink or dinner with after work, that you joke with and taunt, the ones who say "I'll beat you next time, and then you have to buy the first round."

    But as long as Clark worked for the Planet and Lois headed a division rather than being a reporter they weren't competitors. Now that Clark is off on his own, not working for the Planet or some other division of Edge's media conglomerate, Clark may be competing with his former organization as a rival to be first to break stories. So the competition may be back

    So true! Reminds of the people who don't like the new Billy Batson. They're can't believe he acts like a real kid whose had a really tough life.

    News flash, people, Superman and Billy Batson are still good guys. They're just not perfect (boring).
    I seriously miss Captain Mar-Vell.

    Because - whether she knew it or not - he was a lie.

    They were never perfect, but Billy used to be nice. Why is nice boring?

    I think Comet Man has a good point and I can see what he is talking about. As for #14 and how I see it, what is not to love? This title is giving me everything I want in Superman.

    No cutting this one, it's staying on the pull list!

    No, I think they were pretty much made perfect.

    Nice is not boring. I'm nice, but I'm not perfectly nice, and they're times when I'm not nice at all. That's just being human.

    Billy is still nice, but he's had a very tough life, and it's hard for him to show his kindness because he's insecure and doen't trust people easily. But you can see that deep inside he is nice, and as the story progresses, he'll show it more often. I think this Billy Batson is way more interesting than super boy scout Billy Batson.

    We seem to have different definitions of nice, boring and perfect...
