    1. I believe over half of these are going to be in the ‘main’ DC Universe as of this coming fall.


    2. So when are they going to power down these guys to manageable levels?


      • I don’t think it should be about the character’s power level. It’s really about the creative teams ability to tell a great story.
        Morrison’s All Star Superman was more powerful then most versions of the character, and the story was awesome. Likewise, I’ve read some terrible superman stories, and again it’s got nothing to do with power levels.


        • The point is that if one hero can lift the earth and take bazooka shots to the eyes villains need to match that to be a challenge. Villains bleed over on other heroes which in turn need to have enough power to fight them.

          It’s just getting out of hand, and from what I can tell: realism (kind of) is currently king when it comes to comic book related entertainment. I don’t think it would hurt to power them down a tad.


          • Waaaaaaa…superheroes are stronger than supervillians. That’s why they win bro.


          • Superman has actually been powered up and down several times over the years.

            In the 80’s he’s was powered down so he he could barely stop an out-of-control bus. In the 60’s he had unlimited power. Currently he’s somewhere in between. A bazooka might stun him and he can’t move the planet.

            I think it’s difficult to write extremely powerful characters because it’s had to make a believable challenge for them. Most challenging situations become too easy to handle, limiting what the writer can throw at the character.

            Good writers can get past this though. A previous poster mentioned All Star Superman is an exception, and I agree. In it, Superman gets powered up to ridiculous levels, and it’s still a great story. They made a film out of it and I believe it’s on netflix for those who don’t feel like tracking down the comic. I highly recommend it.

            It may also help that All Star Superman was written by a Scottish wizard.. I’m not fucking kidding.


      • If it makes you feel any better, the Sentry (“Crazy Superman”) is already dead….


    3. Who is P-man with the cancer growth?


    4. Oh right, Malibu. Got confuse when Marvel once did a spin off universe of a whole new superheroes/villains
