* ProductionPosse: Their adaptations have a habit of casting particular (voice) actors/actresses more than once. [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Listing them would not be recommendable]].

* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief:
** The operations of society in superhero comics. Aka: the "you are a special snowflake and no one could ever do what you can do" fantasy. In real life, of course, no one person is so "super" they outperform every other human being on the planet at the same time. In comics, technology is not copied wholesale by mook police or military because the readers want to read about superheroes, not about super-police spending all day filling out forms and following regulations. So the world is un-naturally "stacked" by the writers beforehand to accommodate the premise.
** Why isn't every soldier in DC kitted out in Batman gear? Why aren't there thousands of super soldiers, paid for by tens of billions in taxpayer dollars? Why can Wayne Industries do what every international space organization together fails to do? Why doesn't everyone have Steel's power armor? Etc. You can explain it away to an extent, but it is basically handed down by the Presence that, for comic book adventures to work, the individual has to be held higher than the collective effort of many individuals: Batman can do this, but anyone else? Hell no. No matter how hard you try, no. And Superman is a super man! You can't match that! Because if you could... ah... writing stories for him would be hard. that kind of stuff.

In the 1970s, after Marvel's [[UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode Comics Code]]-defying [[DrugsAreBad anti-drug]] ''{{Spider-Man}}'' story, DC jumped on the bandwagon with a slew of '[[MoralOfTheStory relevant]]', social-issue-tackling {{superhero}} stories. Most famously, Franchise/GreenLantern and ComicBook/GreenArrow took a trip across America, fighting such issues as drug use and broken homes. Furthermore, Creator/JackKirby, the other major co-creator of the MarvelUniverse, signed up to create [[ComicBook/NewGods The Fourth World]] comics such as ''The ComicBook/NewGods'' and ''ComicBook/MisterMiracle''. Unfortunately, these titles were ahead of their time and Kirby eventually returned to Marvel in the mid 1970s.

In addition, DC took a chance on some of the talent from Britain and gave some of the promising talents, such as Creator/AlanMoore, Creator/GrantMorrison, and Brian Bolland, a shot at their lesser titles. The result was an explosion of astounding creativity that signaled the comic book version of the BritishInvasion. Mainstream comics would never be the same.

**Not to mention they retconned the Second Reboot (The New 52) with a soft reboot (Rebirth), indicating that the New 52 was not a separate universe, but rather the Post Crisis Universe Altered by an outside actor. The "New" Batman/Superman etc. simply have altered histories but are the same people substantially.
This list shows the last 10 events of 62. Show all.
