    January 18, 2011 9:26 am @CaseyJustice  and @TheAskanison -- boy my brain is slow today, but you are right to point out the lack of JJJ and Jimmy.  I can't believe I didn't think about them or that they are not on the list.   The top three should be JJJ, Jimmy Olson and Alfred with debate about the order.  I'd still put Alfred first, but reasonable minds could differ.
    January 18, 2011 9:13 am With almost 70 years of service and a least one death in the line of duty, Alfred should be #1. 
    Also, I'd have put the Question's Aristotle Rodor on the list. 
    January 5, 2011 9:28 am @Neb  If Jack Knight is in there, so is Hal Jordan.  I think there should be a separate list for guys who wield power gadgets... 
    January 4, 2011 10:47 am 5 just isn't long enough to cover non powered heroes.  Where's Green Arrow?  The Punisher?  Iron Man, Ted Kord, Booster Gold...
    December 23, 2010 5:43 pm If it has to be only one hero, Captain Marvel.  He has the powers, his colors match, and underneath it all he's still a kid.

    If you need a team, it's the mid 1960's JLA and they break up into two person teams to look for clues and face challenges to find Santa.  Batman and Wonder Woman are a team cause it would be nice for them to spend Christmas together.  Of course Batman figures out where the "undisclosed location" is and they save Santa, but it's already Christmas morning!  It's too late -- Santa can't deliver the toys!

    The terrorists are gloating in their chains that they ruined Christmas when Superman punctures their balloon by telling them that the Flash and Green Lantern delivered all the toys while the rest of the league was busy with the search.  Green Lantern carried the sleigh and huge bag of toys and the Flash did the deliveries. 

    Then Santa comes back to the JLA Christmas party and gives each hero a special present and they all wish the readers a Merry Christmas...
    November 30, 2010 10:16 am @josh  Great list.  I'd put Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus and Michael Gough as Alfred for 6 and 7.

    October 17, 2010 6:47 pm I'm a bit confused by the timeline on this book.  If Bruce's parents were killed in the 40's, he would be at least 70 years old.  I kept wondering if this was his timeline, another earth or whether the Wayne's just kept getting murdered generation after generation...

    I'm just wondering if they are going to address the timeline in the story or just pretend that the Golden Age and WWII were 30 and 35 years ago.  I guess they could have Crisis explain it or this could be Earth number whatever, but still, why?

    If they hadn't had the narrator being a street tough in 1941 and also a young cop/ John Jones's partner / newlywed expecting his first child when Superman shows up, it would have been easy to let the gap between the golden age and the current generations be as long as necessary.  All they would have had to explain was why the surviving Golden Age heroes are still relatively young and vital, and they have plenty of explanations for that already.

    But they do have six more issues, which is plenty of story telling to time...

    There was nowhere near enough information in that article.  Apparently they questioned those 674 boys about what they read and watched and then analyzed the "heroes" of those movies, comics, what have you...  But they don't tell us what characters these boys are actually interested in.  If they are all reading Deadpool, well, yeah, he's not a role model.  If they are watching the Batman and Spiderman movies, the professor is off her rocker.  If she's considering other action heroes as superheroes, who knows?   If we knew what characters she was actually talking about, we might be able to actually evaluate what she's claiming.

    It's a pity, because learning what boys 4-18  are reading and watching these days and what characters are most popular would be a lot more interesting than anything revealed in the original article.  ( I only have daughters -- as far as I can tell, they are a completely different demographic...)
