Itís honestly kind of a crime against humanity that Martian Manhunter isnít more popular because that dude rules. The whole time I read JLI, I was imagining Jíonn with the voice of Andre Braugher from Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Is his origin still being summoned in the '50s? I think they should play on that. First, for funzies make Dr Erdel end up summoning him in a Roswell Experiment. Then tell stories of J'onn's adventures throughout American history until the near-past where the JLA showed up, under his various identities.

Can't believe it's taken this long for Johns' Stargirl to be collected.

I believe it was collected previously — I certainly have two volumes in my collection from a while back.

Well now I feel silly.

Anyway, to piggyback off the Ms. Marvel cartoon question from the Marvel thread; who here wants a Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle cartoon?

Jaime is one of my favorite DC heroes and the original mid-00s run is an amazing comic. I'd love to see it adapted, though Young Justice working in the Reach pretty much put the kibosh on that.

I'd like to see a Jaime Reyes cartoon.

[up]Pre or post new 52?

Because Iíve seen the post new 52 one done better. Pre-New 52 had a lot of clever ideas though and its themes and concepts wouldnít just make people pine for more Guyver.

Has it ever been stated if there's any world in the 5th dimension besides Zrrf? It's an entire dimension, the regular 4 have an entire multiverse in it so I'd think there should be a bunch of realities. Also, anyone find it weird how Anti-Matter only ever has one universe, but positive matter has a bunch?

ďThis will be a comic about what the best Batman comics are always been about, how our greatest hero turns fear into bravery, pain into hope, trauma into love.

HA!

Except for The Vision, Omega Men, Mister Miracle, The Sheriff of Babylon...

I mean, it sounds like his Batman comics, yes, because that is, after all, the big theme he's going for. But it doesn't sound anything like his other comics.

Sure sounds a lot like Vision and Heroes in Crisis and that Superman one-off to me.

All I know is Batman is the last one I'd turn to for hope and love. Depression, trauma, and general assholery tend to be more his wheelhouse.

Batman's a dude who suffered the worst thing that could happen to a child and dedicated the rest of his life to ensuring that it never happen to anyone else.

Sometimes people forget this and have him build killer satellites.

To be perfectly honest I am over Grim Tortured Suffering Batman. He can angst and have some gothic creepiness to him but for fuck's sake let the dude smile now and again.

I've not read King's Batman or MM but I've heard scene from Spider-Man/Deadpool is an accurate parody/summation.

It...really isn't. All it's parodying is the nine-panel structure of a lot of Mister Miracle and that's it.

Sure sounds a lot like Vision and Heroes in Crisis and that Superman one-off to me.
The Vision isn't about "turning fear into bravery, pain into hope, trauma into love." It's basically about the failure of trying to be normal and the cycle of violence brought about by the need to fit in. King's Superman story was more about the worry spouses get they are away from their loved ones. And Heroes in Crisis...well, Heroes in Crisis is a jumbled mess, but it's trying to say something about trauma, it just doesn't know what.

Again: none of those are what King himself wrote, which was "how our greatest hero turns fear into bravery, pain into hope, trauma into love."

He deserves it for turning into a major overpowered douchebag as an adult.

No excuse, he should know better.

Plus Adult-Tim is a very charmless douche. Holier than Thou future versions are just the worst.

I mean, if he'd hit adult Tim, you'd have a point.
