Betting Lobo.

What Superman needs is a Two-Face or a Winter Soldier though--someone to rescue morally.

The sales on all of the Lantern titles are high. I bet Green Lantern will be a weekly. Each week will focus on a different Lantern. It will be the same structure but one brand.

1. Robocop had solid fight scenes; I would say it's tied with Winter Soldier. I want to give it credit for that because it's not reflected in the polls.

2. This was nor a good year for the straight-to-DVD films. I hope the writing and animation improve significantly next year--especially since Bruce Timm will be involved in some capacity.

Punisher, Blade, and Moon Knight are the obvious choices.

Are there any other Marvel properties you'd like to see adapted?

I'd like to suggest White Tiger (Kasper Cole), Elektra, and the Runaways.

What are your thoughts?

Don't worry, even Barry's mom questioned his sexuality in Flashpoint. :P

Marvel seems to make more of an effort, but a lot of their black heroes are not superhero-y enough for me. Falcon and War Machine have no mythology of their own, Luke Cage isn't Power Man, Black Panther is cool but not American... Blade isn't really a superhero--more of a supernatural action star... Miles Morales is awesome but derivative....

DC feels like they are being forced to promote their black heroes--not like they really want to. DC has Green Lantern (John Stewart) but they don't push him--starting to change now I suppose... Cyborg isn't an empowering image when he's standing next to all these older, more experienced, more beautiful people who have their own books and more mature friends... Black Lightning is forgotten... Static isn't really theirs...

Then again, Marvel has Storm, who seems to be the most prominent woman of color in comics. Vixen is awesome, but DC does nothing with her...

Hard choice. I'll give it to Marvel for now, but it was DC in the early 2000s.

Come on people, Ronan was clearly the best villain he made the movie.
