For MS Paint, that's pretty good.

Sorry; seriously unable to read through that block of text right now. Could we have the ten-seconds sale pitch? What's it about, who's involved - that sorta stuff. One sentence answers - brevity is bliss.

I'd suggest just looking at the anatomy a bit more. Even if you intend to exaggerate features, being able to draw more anatomically accurate can help. At least that's the theory.

I prefer the One Year Later look myself. I don't mind this, but I just think it could be sleeker - as it is it feels like there are a few too many different design elements (attempts at respecting the classic-50's design, but also implementing the Brightest Day look in addition to making it look more modern and alien simultaneously - I just don't think it meshed too well. The remains of the 'X' particularly I don't think work well, but without them the costume feels incomplete. The OYL design is sleek and the retaining of the 'X' works better IMO). I just have some issues with it - it works, but I think it could be better.

They will treat the cinematic franchise with as much hesitance as they do Wonder Woman for the foreseeable future. They have no other superhero properties lined up to restore faith in any other franchise other than Batman - their Justice League film plans may even be postponed further because of the backlash against MOS and, earlier, Green Lantern. Needless to say, DC will probably slip even more behind Marvel in the cinematic 8-ball unless Marvel trips over its own success.

The film is rated MA15+ in Australia (restricted to viewers of over 15 years); I recall reading the book myself when I was 15. Should be perfectly okay for a 15 year old to read.

I was a bit uncertain of the present-tense narration to start with, but this really worked. It really, really worked.It clicked together, there were some bits I wasn't sure of but schiess. This is good.
