Yes but only if he writes him as he previously did. Big Time, Revenge of the Spider-Slayer, No One Dies, Crossroads, Spider-Island and Ends of the Earth were fantastic stories but recently Slott has lost that creative writing spark. I'd be willing to give him another chance but only one. He'd have to push the bar on his own writing for me to allow him to continue writing Spider-Man. No Turning Back, Danger Zone, Dying Wish and Superior has been a mess.

Just wondering since I can't see any of my followed users posts which I guess has something to do with the switch.

I thought YJ would get the biggest percentage so I used my vote for another Weismann project; The Spectacular Spider-Man. Glad to see it was in 2nd place.

That's how I feel about Injustice's portrayal of Superman. Just as with Wonder Woman, everything the character stands for is going down the drain for a Civil War/Kingdom Come mash up that will rake in money and give poor portrayals of these rich characters. It's so annoying and I won't have anything to do with it. Great blog by the way!

I don´t mean to take a shot at you, but The Injustice Wonder Woman is a more accurate portrayal of Wonder Woman than Azzerrello. I like the story of Injustice, but yeah they have really shown a darker side to these characters, that I just can´t imagine them doing, all to make Batman look like the dude. But then again atleast Superman has a clear reason for what he is doing. His motivation is understandable, cause if anything can push a man over the edge its messing with his wife and baby. However, Wonder Woman just comes across as evil using the death of Lois to her advantage. I kind of like her being the villain, but I think if they´d show why she´s come to this conclusion, just a bit of back story, rather than just making it out like thats The Amazon way would better. The Amazons are a peaceful and wise race Pre-New 52, but I guess if she´s a product of the Amazons as Azzerrello presents them then this version of Wonder Woman makes sense.

Oh terrific here we go again. I should have known you'd try and pick me up on contradicting myself about Injustice's portrayal of Wonder Woman and Azzarello's. At the end of the day, it's all subjective in terms of our preferences and although there are sufficient reasons on both sides, preference is where it's all at.

Now you seem to define accurate as in forgoing her mission for peace, not using words as a tool like Diana does when written properly and Diana cuckolding Superman as her new boy toy after Lois' death. Azzarello isn't doing any of those things. And yes Injustice is setting up Batman to be the one to sympathise with which is annoying.

But I disagree that Lois and his unborn child's death is enough for Superman to suddenly become a dictator. Superman is supposed to be the ultimate force for good and represent everything good about humanity. This situation wouldn't be enough since Superman has endured similar loss before. In Superman: Ending Battle, Manchester Black convinced him that all his villains knew who he was and that he'd killed Lois. Despite all of this imagined suffering Superman refused to kill Black and resolved to just capture him and see him tried the right just way. Black then committed suicide because he failed to get Superman to falsely break his moral code.

Also, a point I'll steal from "50 Reasons Why Superman is the Greatest Superhero Ever" is relevant to my view. It's reason 24 and states "Superman was sent to Earth by accident. Even though in some versions he was sent to Earth knowingly, and in “Smallville” (ugh) he was sent there to rule the world (ugh), of the variations I’ve read, Superman was sent in to Earth, a primitive society when compared to Krypton and was endowed with god like abilities thanks to the yellow sun. And while he has all the power to rule this world if he so please, he chooses not to. He knows he has amazing power but he would rather use it to help humanity shape itself instead of decide that he is fit to rule for them." That's a reason why Superman works so well and Injustice nullifies that.

It's sad this has to be a rule but I'm glad it is. The Bills threads agravate me to no end and I could not agree more with the points raised in the OP. As for the early release point, not much has been released about the extent of Bills' abilities so I'd much rather wait until the film officially comes out before seeing what Bills can do. Of course this will result in inevitably more arguments but at least there'll be something to base it on. Even then, we'll only have translated speech and a few leaked clips to work with since an English release hasn't even been confirmed yet. And are there any Japanese users on CV?

The thing that'll really give us a lot more information will be the Japanese DVD release. And god knows how long that will take. The nation wide release on the 30th probably won't make the information any more readily available than it is right now.

I daren't think about the length of that coming out let alone the English dub. Then again there may not be an English dub or a Funimation one at least

Superman, Wonder Woman, Wally West and MM can beat Frieza pretty handily. Not to mention prep masters, skyfathers, reality warpers and who knows who else since the OP hasn't limited a scope of candidates for beating Frieza

We have a few. I know Enemybird is Japanese or some kind of oriental. But he's a bawse.

So there are some at least. I wouldn't have thought there'd be many though. Manga and anime is the big thing over there. Anime Vice is probably swarming with them :P

Awesome debate so far. Setting a real example for battle forum posters everywhere.
