    Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

    I've got to say that, of all things it's nice to have the classic Lois Lane back. It's astounding how unlikable the nu-52 version of Lois was and how poorly she was handled. I understand trying to do new things with her, but having her expose Superman's secret ID for very flimsy reasons? And then working overtime to expose Nu-Shazam as the replacement Superman in that alternate time without even talking to Billy first? Yeah, not cool Miss Lane.

      Yeah, just what happened to Rage? I haven't heard anything about him in a very long time.

        Rage and Speedball were part of the Camp Hammond instructors.. Speedball went off to the Young Avengers to help teach and then got to be part New Warriors Volume No-Ones-Keeping-Track-Anymore... but i think its rumored Rage went to college..

        [internet google noise]

        Rage is a background Avenger, most notable recently for berating Sam Wilson during the whole "Americop" debacle.


        Still, I think I could generate some decent stories with Speedball and Rage driving cross-country; as Elvin decides to move to California.. and Robbie tags along. Obviously hijinks ensue; and other Warriors can't help but get involved as rumors abound that the Warriors are re-assembling; I'd bring back obscure fan favorites like Helix, Timeslip and Silhouette.. eventually Nova (Rich Rider) gets involved and poor Elvin's car gets carried off into space. (I just want to get to Pasadena! being the catchphrase of the book)..

        Of course, some grateful aliens would OBVIOUSLY soup up Rage's car so it flies in space.. though the type of car he drives is still undecided.. and thats gotta be the most important part of it all..

          In the newest issue of Sam Wilson, Misty Knight beats up some people who shared porn because a woman in it looked like her celebrity friend (who I'm sure some shapeshifter has pretended to be at some point in Marvel's long convoluted canon). She's says it's impossible for the porn to be real: By her own admission it's fake which means it's perfectly legal (actors pretending to be celebrities in porn is very well established as legally protected). From her reasoning she's breaking into people's houses and beating them up for nothing. The listed videos don't even include any names, just descriptors ("exotic alien princess", "sultry villaness") which means it's even more legally protected.

          Clearly someone wanted to do have a strong female character beat up people spreading revenge porn, but forgot to include the parts that make it a crime (like the "stolen" part of "stolen images") The lack of stuff like this is a large part of why DC is selling better.

            here's my Thought process on the whole thing....
            Marvel=I really wish they would stop trying to make their comic universe match with their Movie Universe,it makes me want to go to Their Offices(buying a 2-way bus ticket to New York from Kentucky,mind you!) and hit all of them with a Rubber chicken while yelling "stop doing this to us,you idiots!" over&over again...

            DC=right now their doing ok(in my opinion),if they can just stick to one Universe without retconning every 4-5 months & making my want to do to them what i want to do to Marvel(especially with how their treating My Hawkman family lately)...

              Still waiting for Hawkman to not be hot garbage so i can give it a shot again.. I'm guessing i should keep waiting?

                yeah,it's better to wait untill DC makes up their Minds on what Universe they want to use.

                And it's nice to see another Midway City Citizen here!
