    April 6, 2013 12:43 pm would Jack Cole's Plastic Man fit your criteria?
    March 4, 2013 3:41 pm Terrific and very thoughtful article! Thank you, Jim!! Best line: "There is nothing worse than being perceived as immature, especially to immature people." Where is Plastic Man when you need him?
    February 25, 2013 4:51 pm yeah, ok, and "playas gon' play, ...don't hate tha playa, hate the game." i still don't understand why honest critique is not welcome. or not tolerated. ...and why must it be interpreted as hate. ...and why project your own fantasy onto others who contribute to the "conversation"? (if we can call it that.)
    February 16, 2013 4:40 pm Why is it that it seems any negative comment warrants the weak, unhelpful reply: "if you don't like it, don't buy it." It shuts down any conversation and isn't the point of commenting on forums to have conversation? I am astounded by the majority of response has been to swallow this story hook, line and sinker. A major plot point goes without any real answer: WHY did Joker cut off his face? While I liked Paul M.'s use of the clown's gun going off with a flag's "bang", I don't have issue with a story where a big 'bang" doesn't go off. I take issue with the piecemeal plot points and devices... that go nowhere. One of the best critique's I've read is here: http://comicsastonish.com/2013/02/12/batman-is-stupid/ I don't know the guy who wrote it, I have no stake in posting his link, I submit it only to add to the discussion and b/c i think he makes great points in which iFanboy should engage.
    March 22, 2012 5:15 pm Excellent, BulgarianBullwhip, - well said! In addition, it seems the B-man has hid his dental skills from us up to this point - how many other things has he been hiding? Seriously? one sideways punch to the exact tooth - and only that tooth comes out? ...and which tooth was it? C'mon, at least show us the gap in Dick's set of choppers.
    March 12, 2012 6:53 pm Glad you brought up Plastic Man. The original Jack Cole version is sadly overlooked, however it is, in my opinion, critical to understanding comics. Moreover, it is pure enjoyment. And therefore I believe it is canonical.
    February 23, 2012 3:02 am for your consideration: Andy Kaufman does Mighty Mouse theme song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGx94VPb8V8 Underdog , a classic - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhvZYULhy3Y&feature=related The Mighty Hercules - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUBgk41vKZA&feature=related Super Chicken - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQq6xfbgfXw&feature=related The lyrics on all these are super!
    February 21, 2012 12:39 pm and, uh... Adventures of Superman: opening --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAROcbv4gco -- end credits -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdHB7YWtQ3k&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PLD867145E18CC9562 altho the theme was fairly short, it had a huge influence.
