Hmm, I wonder how Jones will fit any of this into her Catwoman title? Unless that book has to become a prequel for a full year...

[up]As well it should. I don't even know what they're doing with Wally anymore to be honest.

Also, cross posting this from the Wonderwoman thread, because his thread gets more posts:

Random question (my favourite kind of question):

Anyone know what the name of the type of shoes that Donna wore in her original costume is?

They seem like Ballet shoes, but I've never been sure. I think some of the very early versions of Diana sported them as well.

Yeah. What are those types of shoes called anyway?

Once again, wokka wokka!

I think they're called pointe shoes, the type of shoes ballet dancers wear. That's what they look like the most to me anyway.

Why does that bring the idea of Diana bragging about her sister in a recital?

So it sounds like Wally isn't actually evil, just a dumbass. That's... something, I guess.

I guess. I thought that as well, it's just...those are strange shoes for warriors to wear.

I know, back in the day, the practicality of women's clothing wasn't exactly something most writers and artists thought much about, but it still seems weird.

Then again, Diana has only recently started wearing clothes that actually look like something an amazon warrior would wear after years of sporting the bathing suit of justice, so maybe I should just forget about it.tongue

...gonna miss that bathing suit of justice just a little bit though.

Once again, wokka wokka!

It's nice to know Wally isn't going villain... but still, teasing it for months upon months with such a beloved character is phenomenally douchey, especially given that he was the #1 character people missed after the Flashpoint reboot.

Also, are the Old Guy JSA back yet?

The big superheroes might have pages like historical figures and they'd talk about big events like a battle or something.

But for your question, who do we know is pretty into movies and their trivia?

5-page preview of Heroes in Crisis #9 is out.

Wait, isn't Tim Drake the smart, tech-savvy Robin? If he is, then talk about an oversight…

[up] From the image being named "Red Robin" it looks like it's from a time before he thought of himself as tech-savvy. Isn't he currently just called "Robin," like the rest? (It looks like those are all testimonials from Sanctuary.)

[up] Hmmm. I always thought it was weird how Rebirth had him codenamed "Red Robin" only for Bendis' Young Justice to come around and just stick with "Robin".

Maybe this will explain the slight name change?

Wait, wasn't he already established as tech-savvy during the Detective Comics story where he seemingly died only not really? Unless that specific testimony was BEFORE that particular story?

(Comics are weird...)

[up] Tim Drake being the smart Robin was set up in his origin story (where he figures out who Batman); that story also sets himself up as the dependable Robin (he takes the initiative to become Batman's sidekick because he sees that Batman has become reckless after Jason Todd's death.) It's fairly trivial to turn "smart and dependable" into something that warrants a therapy session (namely dealing with the stress of having a bunch of responsibility on your shoulders.)

I mean, Tim Drake definitely needs therapy. When he came "back to life" after escaping Mr. Oz, he immediately went about refining the Belfry and plunged back into the vigilante life 110%, when before he had been happy to be going to college. He ended up merging with Brother Eye due to this.

Kate Kane has name-dropped a few tropes, though didn't use them accurately (but she was drugged at the time, so eh). Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, Barbara Gordon, Luke Fox, Kyle Rayner, and other confirmed nerds are probably tropers.

Wonder if Luthor ever tries to vandalize the Superman pages in places like Wikipedia or this site.

Can you imagine Wikipedia scrambling to stay super-objective and neutral in its articles on supervillains?
