    January 10, 2013 1:02 pm Jim Aparo for me. His art portrayed the action behind being Batman, rather than drawing attention to itself. I dislike art that slaps you in the face and demands attention. The art should enhance the story. With Aparo, and Adams as well, the art flowed.
    November 2, 2012 12:44 pm How about a Jedi Knight with a Junior Woodchuck Guidebook? Unstoppable!
    November 1, 2012 10:40 am And now, for the opposing viewpoint.... I suspect that it's a matter of who you grew up with. Barry will always be the Flash for me. He has a keen analytical mind, yet is almost entirely lacking in social skills (You want character flaws? There you go.).
    October 25, 2012 1:00 pm I love the other little touches of DC mythology spread throughout. The mention of Markovia. The number on the door: 52.
    July 11, 2012 4:53 pm Agreed, it might be a bit awkward trying to shoehorn everyone into a relation with current characters. Perhaps there could be the one connection with Batman, since it appears that he is now the first contemporary hero. There are still many others who could be used: Johnny Quick, Liberty Belle, Tarantula, and so on. Certainly there is already a New 52 precedent for early heroes in Cinnamon and Nighthawk. I loved All-Star Squadron and would love to see another version.
    October 5, 2011 6:42 pm Two thoughts regarding Mr. Terrific. 1. Since there was no JSA on this world, there would have been no Terry Sloan, the original Mr. Terrific. So how did Michael arrive at that name? It sounds a little strange if you think about it. 2. What is the purpose of the face mask? It wouldn't disguise him anymore than painting my face would disguise me. So does the mask have some other purpose?
    October 4, 2011 6:28 pm I prefer DC over Marvel. BOTH companies have convoluted histories and improbably weird plots. (Remember the Spider-Buggy?) I've been reading comics since 1968, and I will still be reading comics this year, next year, etc. Do I like what DC had done? I would have preferred it to be a true reboot, instead of keeping some large chunks of continuity and dumping others. Am I staying with DC? Yes, because I still care for the characters. Has DC "sold out"? I would say yes, The new universe seems to be R-rated. And for all those who whined about Superman's red trunks (oh, excuse me, underwear)--they're gone now, are you happy? Had the world flocked to the comic shops because of that? (And I haven't heard any complaints about Supergirl's costume.)
    July 7, 2011 2:42 pm The truth can now be revealed.  I engineered the whole Retro situation so that I could have a 'new' tale of the JLA satellite years.  Yes, it is true - I, alone in the universe, enjoy reading DC comics.  I do not fall and worship at the feet of Grant Morrison.  I laugh in the face of grim, gritty, belts and buckled heroes.  I am ... Onlyman.
    June 13, 2011 7:51 pm And just be glad that you don't have to explain "Pie-face".
    June 13, 2011 3:27 pm I just realized what else was bugging me about the Action costume.  The blue uniform now has a neck to it.  It makes him resemble Superboy/Man/Prime.
