• JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Least favourite era in comics?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    For the most part, I only read comics from the 1980s onwards when it comes to DC and I only read stuff from the 2000s onwards when it comes to Marvel. I'd say I dislike the 1950s and 1960s the most be...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Would you be okay with a Superhero movie done in parts?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    @feartheliving: If the filler is removed, one could probably decrease the length of the movie so that it didn't have to be split in two. It would have to be a very good story that could only be told ...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Was Tim Drake a better Robin then Dick Grayson?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Functionally, I think Dick did a better job as a sidekick to Batman and leader of Teen Titans, but I think Tim was a better solo, independent Robin. Though to be fair, Tim's inability to be a great si...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic If you could make a change to any comic book. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I'd make it that if Superman is powered by the yellow sun, whenever the sun goes down, he loses his powers temporarily or at least become weakened by the lack of sun.

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Would you be okay with a Superhero movie done in parts?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I'd rather just sit through a 3 hour movie than split it into two, I hate "to be continued" concepts that is why I don't read monthly comics but TPBs instead. Also, I'd rather use the other movie to e...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Better black superheroes - DC or Marvel?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I feel like Marvel has a better variety of black heroes with a wider range of abilities. I also think they make better use out of their characters. Maybe its because Marvel is so team focused that man...

    We live in a world where we can't trust the supposed "good guys" we have now, ie: politicians, police, or the justice system, so what makes you think we can trust someone with that kind of weaponry an...

    I don't think there are overpowered characters, just poorly written or inconsistently written characters.

    I mostly go through cycles where I will watch a show to the point that I tire of it, take a break for a few months or years and then watch it again. I have found that I've become more interested in wa...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Do you consider yourself an intellectual?. on the Off-Topic board

    I don't know if intellectual is the word I'd use, I'm more of a know-it-all and a book smart person surrounded by street smart people which causes great conflict at work.

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Who had a better Flash run Geoff Johns or Mark Waid?. on the DC Comics board

    Both are great runs for different reasons. I felt that Waid focused more on Wally's growth in his own right as well as the legacy of the Flash and expansion of the Flash family. While I feel Johns did...

    Spelling is never a problem it's when they say my name. People always call me Julia instead of Julie and what is really weird is that I don't think I've ever met any Julias only other Julies, so I don...
