    May 5, 2019 7:05 pm Conor mentioned whether he should read anything into the treatment of Nightwing in DCeased #1. He doesn’t need to because in the Year of the Villain Special, Nightwing along with Wally and the Young Justice team aren’t on that double page spread with Batman saying they need to go to war. It is pretty clear that Dick Grayson as a character isn’t treated with respect and is in a story no one cares about where no one knows what to do with him. It is incredibly disappointing. Here is that double page spread:
    May 5, 2019 3:53 pm I was really excited for War of the Realms, but have been underwhelmed where it’s a lot of fun. However, there is not enough emotional depth so it’s more difficult to connect to where it is just fun for the most part. Scott Snyder has been attempting to be Grant Morrison while not being Grant Morrison since Metal which I didn’t like and I do not like his Justice League run. Issue 17 of the run worked since it was a lot more focused otherwise Snyder is trying way too hard. I agree that I just want a story and stop over explaining everything where this story never ends. It’s overwritten and is not well done from a writing standpoint. I don’t know anyone who likes Justice League right now and Justice League Dark and Justice League Odyssey even with the writer switch are much better. I’ve been very concerned about DC for a while with the Nightwing switch where Benjamin Percy was kicked off the comic along with Joshua Williamson being replaced on Odyssey to no fanfare. It’s been a bad direction for multiple DC comics which is disappointing.
    May 5, 2019 3:41 pm I would strongly disagree on Snyder’s Justice League run being must read since it is a mess from a writing standpoint. Other than issue 17 and parts of the annual that were great, it’s not very good overall and is overwritten constantly. I don’t know anyone who likes it and Snyder is trying so hard to be Grant Morrison, but he’s not Grant Morrison.
    April 19, 2019 1:50 am With the Green Lanterns, Kai-Ro would be there from Batman Beyond as a cameo with the tribute to them too so that is another clue as to how you know that this isn’t part of the Timmverse.
    April 19, 2019 1:43 am Anyone who thinks that this movie is set in the Timmverse just because of the aesthetic is frankly being ridiculous. It clearly doesn’t especially because of the Green Lanterns where Guy and Hal don’t exist other than a Hal cameo in a Justice League Unlimited episode. That only occurred because of the time stream changing with John becoming Hal briefly. I was bothered by the fact that we never see Jessica get her ring and it was very strange since that was a missed opportunity where it isn’t explained for her backstory. Another way that you know this doesn’t take place in the Timmverse is that Superman could only fly in space while wearing an actual suit like an astronaut in the animated series since he couldn’t breathe in space. You see that here: That’s why I wouldn’t worry about continuity. The swearing felt unnecessary and it felt like the movie was trying too hard. I thought that using the actual animated series themes for Superman and Batman was cool at first, but then every time Batman appeared, his theme played which was excessive. That didn’t happen in the Justice League animated series so I didn’t like it in this movie with it happening over and over again.
    April 15, 2019 10:36 pm If you want to feel even worse about Batman, the arc that was supposed to start in issue 70 with Thomas Wayne was delayed to issue 74. The planning of the Knightmares arc has been frankly terrible and certain issues work really well as one shots, but don’t work well with having any momentum for the series. It’s been very frustrating and it was time to move on months ago. A different arc is happening involving Arkham Asylum in 70 so I’m just not that excited for Batman right now.
    March 31, 2019 11:05 pm Those are great shorts, but that was a completely different medium where it would be difficult to pull that off in a comic especially with the music changes in the Superman one.
    March 31, 2019 11:04 pm I will add context to the current Batman Beyond series. This is not the same series that Conor read in the past. That was Batman Beyond 2.0 and actually set in the animated universe. That was a great series until the reveal of Bruce impregnating Barbara happened which goes back to them dating as mentioned in the Batman Beyond TV show. They were also dating during The Mystery of the Batwoman movie. The current series wasn’t set in the animated universe and was another future in the DC Universe where Jason Todd was killed by the Joker. This was the first issue that Doc Shaner drew and he was not a regular on the series and I read it because he was doing the art. Doc Shaner should be a far bigger name at this point and doing a random issue of Batman Beyond was very strange to me since he never drew the comic before.
    March 17, 2019 8:39 pm The current Superman story doesn’t make sense where clearly Bendis is not up on his DC continuity or he doesn’t care since the Crime Syndicate is dead with no explanation as to why they’re around again. Superman is definitely the weaker one of the two Superman comics. The Leviathan event starts in June while Snyder has his own Justice League event that he is doing where DC doesn’t seem cohesive at all with the current direction. Clearly Doomsday Clock isn’t the direction anymore and isn’t set 1 year into the future with the delays and Bendis coming in. I wish it was though.
    February 18, 2019 5:46 pm For some reason, Marvel is all in on Conan as a character and he is going to be part of the Savage Avengers which will be written by Gerry Duggan. This is probably his test run with the character even though it feels unnecessary. I didn’t like the pirates either.
