Back in the days when our favourite superheros made their first appearances nobody knew that those comic books would today worth a fortune. Movie franchises and TV shows made Marvel’s and DC Comics’ heroes even more popular and collectors are willing to pay some serious money to get a hold of these rare comic books that are worth a fortune.

I remember that story. It wasn't Supes himself, but one of the Superman Robots that got damaged while in space, drifted to a far planet and was repaired by a scientist-mermaid.Mermaid dies of dehydration, then the robot builds his own
Mer-family from the mermaid's spaceship.Meanwhile Lois is thinking Supes has a family on the side, and hilarity ensues...

Not trying to sound like a SJW, but how come no comic book creator has created a transgender superhero that is written realistically with problems that someone might actually face and not this made up bullshit of misgendering PTSD. This could provide an actual interesting dynamic to the character.

I thought Black Panther was Ok, though not deserving of all the buzz surrounding it, but didn’t pander to anyone. If that was the case then Jack Kirby and Stan Lee were pandering when they wrote the character. They created a hero unapologetically black, African, smart, rich, and noble. There was nothing in the movie itself that seemed like it would have been out of place within the comic. You have to remember that Jack and Stan both grew up and poor Jewish kids in the 1920’s when anti-Semitism was incredibly common, so in many ways they identified with minorities in ways that we often overlook nowadays. If the movie was pandering then the creators were pandering when they first wrote the character.

Princess Adora as Despara commits atrocities. How to redeem her: SHE-RA ! Anonymous 13/04/03(Wed)21:09 No. 23511 [Reply]

File 136501617191.jpg - (170.46KB , 768x811 , Despara aka Princess Adora.jpg )

Notice the sadness in Adora's face?
Masters Of The Universe 8 reveals that Adora, now Despara, is a lethal weapon in the service of evil! This means a great deal. This young beautiful girl is deprived of her true calling; a heroin who is meant to represent hope and inspire good. The Horde is to be despised for making her a villainess who ignites despair and enforces evil. As a reader I rejoice in Adora's yearning for a better life. I read it as a sub-conscious expression of weeping for being kept from what she was truly destined to be and being forced to endure this nightmare of a life. Adora must be freed from the Horde and be allowed to choose the kind of life she wants to lead. I am grateful that Despara is covered from head-to-toe. Adora (and her face) should be engaging opponents as a warrior for GOOD and not evil! The bond and friendship with her steed Spirit, can be given more weight to. They can encourage each other to always strive to do good because the guilt of committing horrible acts under Horde-control hangs heavy on them. Also, their desires to be (and stay as long as possible) She-Ra and Swift Wind is great because these are identities that are used in the service of good and have not, in the past, been used for acts of evil! The short-haired Adora can be transformed into the long-haired She-Ra. To have Adora's hair, height, mass, clothes and voice change when she transforms into She-Ra makes for a much better secret identity (a dark tan like He-Man got in the cartoon when Prince Adam turned into him, would also be nice).

“It’s just such a great idea – you say a magic word, and suddenly you can fly, and bullets will bounce off you. Just a really, simple, great concept.

“I think the key is that magic word, ‘Shazam.’ Magic words are something that go back in fiction, back to myths and legends and The Arabian Nights. It’s just something that resonates for us, I think. And it’s such a good magic word – it sounds like ‘Alakazam.’

“Even Gomer Pyle was saying it. Dave Chappelle was saying it on his show. I’ve heard it in rap videos. Everyone knows what it means, it’s ‘Shazam!’ It’s the transformation into something else, like ‘Let’s go!’ It’s a call to action.

“And the costume – the red outfit with the lightning bolt. How many times in our lifetime have we seen generic parody superheroes, whether in an advertisement or anywhere, with a lightning bolt on their costume? The lightning bolt has almost become the generic symbol for a superhero, and it has its roots in Captain Marvel.”

People forget how popular Captain Marvel was at one time. He had his own radio show, a movie serial and outsold Superman for a time. Imagine OUTSELLING the most prominent superhero of all time at the height of popularity for the medium. That’s bananas. But Captain Marvel would have been pretty well-known to a generation of Americans. So it’s not strange that some parts of the Captain Marvel mythos would become part of the zeitgeist, even when the people saying “Shazam!” may not understand the origin of the term, the same way that most people don’t know that terms like “Brainiac” and “Bizarro” originated with Superman.

Batman is a much better than character than Superman. I understand that Superman's main appeal is that he is a perfect man and his goody persona is heartwarming. But this can only go so far until it gets boring. Batman on the other hand is a self made hero that has many flaws to make him an intriguing complex character. This is because Bruce knows if he gives up being Batman he will find happiness but his vengeance is what drives him. Also I dont know why anyone would root for Superman to beat Batman in a fight. Superman beating Batman is something very realistic and predictable. Watching a god pummel a man dressed as a bat isnt something that would be interesting in a comic book setting. Rather the underdog and the one that relies on brains instead of brawn should be the victor. I am not a batfag, I just know that Batman is a superior character to Superman.

I don't find Superman's goody heartwarming persona boring at all. In fact, with the way everyone and everything has to be so dark and brooding all the time these days, it's actually kinda refreshing.

I look at Superman more like a god walking among man and trying to fit in. Because of that, he's burdened with being the good guy, like the anchor that keeps the world together. If he isn't then he loses the only home he ever knew.

You're kind of right. DC's heroes have been likened to gods. The classic Justice League line-up gets called the Pantheon and the three largest characters of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman get called the Trinity. Superman is meant to be bigger than life. A paragon of everything just and right in the world.

But people tend to forget that he was Clark Kent before he was Superman. He grew up on a farm in Kansas and in modern times he didn't develop his powers until puberty. So his formative years were normal. In the modern movies he feels detached from humanity, like he's above us, and that's why the movies angered fans because Superman would never view himself as above anyone.

My pick is Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist. It used to air on Comedy Central back in the 90's and I rarely hear about it today. It was where I first discovered offbeat humor. What series do you think is underrated?
