August 24, 2011 10:19 am I disagree with the idea that the JSA was comics for old people. Yes the characters origins were from a past era. But the strength of the JSA was proving that these characters were still relevant. That and the mentor relationships with the new generation of heroes. There was never excessive- "In my day milk came in bottles" etc etc Just stories about a family of heroes in today's world. But you know what book does do that? - Captain America. ALL the time. At least the current treatment. The man out of time who has trouble with the internets and just wants to jitterbug with his best girl. If there's a comic for old people - that's your book. Don't get me wrong I really like Cap- but this return(and obviously for the movie in large part) to the constant WWII references and old tymey confusion of another generation in a modern world is getting a bit much for me. Obviously Caps origin is very important and should be celebrated but I always preferred writers treating him as an individual who could adapt to any situation based on his training his will and skill. But if I had to hand a comic to an older person stuck in a by gone era it wouldn't be JSA it would be Captain America for sure.
August 24, 2011 8:01 am I have been very concerned about the art with the new Superman but hearing "jeans" and "bruce springsteen" Now I am downright worried. A more back to basics Superman for awhile - fine- good. A Superman brought to you by JC Penney- No thanks.

August 22, 2011 7:27 am Pretty sure this isn't very buzzable now. If ever.
August 21, 2011 9:23 pm I really enjoy Remender usually. But I haven't really got the impression he has a very firm grasp of the AoA. The whacky combo characters- really threw me. And to me the general tone is just way off. Bringing back AoA Nightcrawler could be good though feels like a nice Exiles borrow.+

August 21, 2011 6:13 am When is the last time you were nominated for an Oscar? He still has one- b/c at one time he had a great one. And honestly he was pretty good in the first movie. I never saw him as Superman and I think his personal life is something I def don't want to hear about. But he'll do a good job in this picture.
