  1. Ron- Am I to understand that you felt More connected to the New 52 Superman??
    Especially New 52 Superman- After Grant Morrison.

  2. Didn’t Jimi have some right handed guitars that he played upside down?

  3. Conor is on to something. GenX skepticism has transformed into tiredness.

  4. I’m all for a bit of reader voting, I loved it when DC would let readers vote for the Legion of Super-Heroes leader, from the Sixties to the Eighties. That led to such things as the surprise election of Dream Girl, when a bunch of readers decided to campaign for the then-ditsy seer out of sheer devilment, so Paul Levitz began writing her as really rather awesome (she was never an idiot anyway, beint a super-scientist in her first appearance, but that rather got left behind over the years).

  5. Tyler’s question: I think Fury Max fits the bill. Could be wrong but it’s not a Nick Fury I’ve ever seen.
