Deadliest Superhero

Did you guys ever watch the show the Deadliest Warrior on Spike? How cool would it be to have a series like that but for superheroes? Imagine a show where "experts" comb through comic book information as well as information from comic book adaptations in other media and then use that to determine which of two selected characters per episode would win in a battle. Then have a dramatization of that battle with cool effects showing who would win for the audience.

I imagine that might add fodder for a lot of battle forum debates, or put some to rest.

Age

When you read comics are you drawn to stories about characters your own age, or is age irrelevant to you? For instance, books like Runaways, X-Men, Teen Titans, etc, may appeal to teens looking for stories that have characters which reflect them as readers. And as those readers grow older they may turn to different books with older protagonists.  The opposite may also be true. Older readers may prefer younger characters and/or characters from their youth. For some characters, like Wolverine who is over a hundred, age probably doesn't factor into what is relatable about them.


Do you feel like the age of a character makes him or her, more or less relatable? Does it matter?

How Old is Too Old?


At what point are we supposed to stop readings comics? And why should we? Frankly, I don't think you're ever too old to enjoy something you like so long as it doesn't harm anyone. Comic books (and animation) do however have the stigma of being something just for kids, even though many if not most comics are geared towards an older audience. 
 
Do you pay any attention to people who believe that? Does it bother you if people think you're too old to be reading comics? Do you think you will be too old for it one day, and If so, when are you "too old" for comics? I'd like to challenge that sentiment. If only more people understood just how much comics and graphic novels offer people of all ages. There is more to it and more diversity in comics than people who don't read them may realize.
