August 10, 2016 4:36 pm I have to believe that the final cut of this movie was a result of studio meddling. David Ayer didn't forget how to write and direct between Fury and now. The script may have been rushed or something, but clues point to somewhere along Warners did an about-face with this movie when it was too late. Also I'm not surprised that the CGI disaster was so boring and awful. I don't think Ayer has touched a CGI in his life.
April 28, 2014 2:10 pm The new52 Batman and Robin Annual #1 is a nice father story. And it's more kid appropriate than the regular series. Also Lil' Gotham has some sweet father/son stuff.
December 9, 2013 2:16 pm On that Green Arrow/avatar of the *blank* discussion. I have to agree with you. Though I am enjoying the revamp of the origin in GA, the Avatar and Ollie's dad part bothers me a lot. What is with the whole interconnection after the fact thing? Why is it always somebody's dad or brother or sister who was involved in their origin the whole time without the hero knowing? It's easy to connect the dots, but it's harder to undo them. Why are we finding out about Tony Stark's adoption, Green Arrow's green arrow, WW's dad, Batgirl's brother, Thanos's son now? I was even board with everything in Court of the Owls (SPOILER) until Dick Grayson was chosen to be a talon for the sake of a couple Nightwing tie-ins, and Batman's is he, isn't he brother. Chosen One stories are played out. It's somewhat better if it was the plan the whole time-- Star Wars, Dune, The Bible, but to offer a family tie-in or secret origin in place of another is attempting to sneak in an "I am your father" moment, and it's never as impressive. People would not be impressed if "I am your father" happened years later in episode III. Betcha never saw that coming and the force is bacteria.

November 7, 2013 4:16 pm True. There were some really nice moments with BQM's version of Damian too. There was a sibling rivalry there. The father/son dynamic with Tomasi was something special though.
November 4, 2013 2:39 pm I agree people should just leave their greasy mitts off Damian, but this is what we get. All of the Kuberts were products of a certain time. Joe was a product of the Golden Age and timeless and amazing, and Andy is a product of the 90's and amazing for the 90's. I think Tomasi was the only writer who had a nice handle on Damian aside from Morrison. He made him a little more immature but got some great moments out of it.
October 21, 2013 2:49 pm I never read the original O.M.A.C. I picked up the first issue of DiDio's run and liked it a lot. That scene with the disassembled lady in a box was used again by Paul Pope in Solo. It was my favorite story from his issue, and it was called "Are You Ready for the World That's Coming?" I didn't realize it was such a precise tribute.
September 3, 2013 2:41 pm It's been real. Glad the podcasts are still running. Good job and good luck!
August 30, 2013 2:39 pm If you want to read Superman, read Adventures thereof. If you want to read Superman searching desperately for his glorious red trunks and all that they stood for, read Superman Unchained. If you want to get confused about a confused Superman, read Action Comics. If you don't want to read Superman, read Superman.
