June 12, 2013 12:12 pm True, Siegel and Shuster didn't create Zod but they also didn't create a lot of other Superman villains. Brainiac, Metallo, Parasite, and others were created by other people. I doubt much legal thought was put into their use. I assume that Zod and his allies were used in Superman II because they were the cheapest to film. They didn't require huge amounts of make-up or extra special effects beyond what had already been created for the Superman character. The real question should be why was Zod used and not Jax-Ur or someone more prominently featured in early Phantom Zone stories. My guess there is that a military general seems more intimidating on screen than a rogue scientist.
June 10, 2013 9:44 pm Fingers crossed on a Metallo or Brainiac big bad with a Prankster cold open.
June 10, 2013 5:02 pm I want to buy Jim some Superman stories and then guilt him into reading them.
June 6, 2013 4:46 pm Ah. This makes much more sense now. Sounds good to me.
June 4, 2013 6:20 pm True. Plus, I think Batman returned the punch a few issues into Hal's ongoing which soon followed. The only other time I can recall someone getting one over on ol' Bats is Suicide Squad #10 when Amanda Waller threatened to expose Batman's identity after he went undercover at Belle Reve. Fans cried foul in the letter column, if I recall, and the moment was walked back a bit editorially, but I still like the idea of Waller being even more of a badass than Batman.
June 4, 2013 5:37 pm Not too often but it's happened at least once courtesy of Hal Jordan and Green Lantern: Rebirth.
June 1, 2013 10:34 am Superman hates the idea of ships docking anywhere. He wants them to be free of the constraints of the land.
May 30, 2013 3:21 pm I bought all of Rucka's Punisher run in trade for my brother on his birthday for I am the best brother in the world. He read Punisher comics during the character's heyday of the early 1990s but hasn't touched a Frank Castle story since at least 1993. This final volume is currently winging its way to him now. He's gonna love it.
May 29, 2013 11:52 pm If DC had really killed her off in this issue, they'd have told us about it in a nationally syndicated newspaper earlier this week.
