@k4tzm4n Honestly this was a great read. It's refreshing to see the reminder of being polite put out there. Being online is like having a mask and because of that people let themselves get carried away without realizing everyone else online are also people.

And I won't lie, I am a Batman fanboy and I will find anyway for Batman to win. And I acknowledge my bias. I have all but stopped going on battle forums though because people can't handle a polite banter. What's interesting is you hardly see any "who would make a good team"? Why do our heros always have to be fighting each other. :-P

that's actually a myth. you are correct that pansexuals don't see gender/sex as important variables in attraction, but they can still find looks to be attractive. For example a pansexual can be really into brown eyes. What makes them pansexual is they don't care if the brown eyes belong to someone who is cis/trans, male/female, genderqueer/intersex, masculine/feminine etc. cause gender/sex isn't the important factor.

Sorry but Man Of Steel Superman was not evil. He wasn't perfect, but he wasn't evil.

I'm glad you caught on to that. I put him in on purpose. The problem is unless you have a perfect Superman, where is the line between good and evil drawn?

To put it in perspective, I am willing to bet that Osama bin Laden, Hitler, Lex Luthor, and Ra's Al Ghul all think that what they are doing is just and right. When Superman in Man of Steel helped with the destruction of an entire city easily causing the death of MILLIONS (ya that's more than what Osama even did), he stopped being good. Sure he was stopping Zod, but the Superman we all know and grew up with would have and could have easily moved the fight to somewhere less inhabited. Then he became executioner at the end of the movie...no due process. So sure he wasn't evil, but I can hardly say he is good when people are just a means to an end.

I even put the Black president Superman that morrison made at the very end. He is a good guy, and way less flawed from Man of Steel (as far as I remember). But he is the most powerful man ruling the (arguably) most powerful country. Call me paranoid, but that is too much power for one person to have. Unless we think versions of dictator Superman is good, cause he probably does lower the death rate by A LOT. So that begs the question for us as readers, is freedom worth that sacrifice?

I believe his heart was in the right place but he just made mistakes like most people do. I don't know why he didn't try to move the fight to a less populated area but I don't think he was intentionally trying to cause destruction and kill innocent people. I think he was just focused on stopping the bad guy, which obviously caused a lot of unnecessary death and destruction but I think what was intentional and will make him into the Superman people like. He will probably catch flack and get bashed for causing so much destruction, he will probably be haunted by killing Zod with his own hands, and probably will feel really bad about all those innocent people dying, and I think those things will lead to him creating his no kill code and eventually shape him into classic Superman in a way.

a tale of redemption! I like it, like honestly, it could turn out really well if they actually go that route with what you said. I just don't want brooding Superman anymore...lol

Lol yeah I know what you mean, a lot of people are not very fond of MOS Superman. (I actually loved Man Of Steel) Anyway yeah, I think a lot of the stuff he gets flack for in real life by fans and critics, he will get flack for in the actual movies, and im thinking (hoping) this will kind of hit Clark hard, he will have some internal conflict, probably beat himself up over it, and eventually promises to himself that he wont let something like that happen again, and this will mold him into the Superman most people know and l love in a way lol

Oh I actually loved MoS. The movie was trying to hard to be epic for me that it forgot what epic was. They will do a great job if they use Lex Luthor as the voice of the critics and what I've been saying, and have Superman grow to prove everyone wrong. But honestly, after MoS..I'm just hoping Cavill just smiles once :-P

As long as we get a whole Batman franchise of movies, I'll be happy :). And I wanna see a Robin that isn't Dick...like maybe Tim?

#8 Posted by batshrine (997 posts) - - Show Bio

Cassandra Cain is the only one skilled enough. But after her I guess I pick Tim Drake

#9 Posted by batshrine (997 posts) - - Show Bio

Sure I guess, as long as it's well written

@heavenlydarkdragon: I honestly like how you're just riding this wave and just seeing where it goes. It is interesting how this is solely affecting Superman. I know in the 90's we had almost everyone shaken up from Parallax to Azrael to the 4 Supermen. It maybe just a trend, and we may get an awesome character out of it, we did get Steel and Superboy from the Death of Superman after all.

The odd thing however, is that at the moment, if we had to say what Superman is in all his current depictions, he should be labeled as a villain. And this isn't affecting any of the other Supers even though GL, Flash, MM, WW, and some more are arguably just as strong as him, DC is having a fun time tarnishing their poster boy. Though I do agree with some people who commented like @smashbrawler, in many cases it's an easy way out to make Superman interesting enough to sell.

I mean to put things in perspectives in November 2014, Batman has over 20 comics coming out in his name, and not one of them involve him going rogue, or crossing a line.
