Then again, canon vs non-canon, I suppose a perfect answer is "Well, he's a comic book character. He'll be as old as you want him to be, but usually a young adult, a teenager at the mid-to-higher end of his teens

In "Joker's Wild", (2nd mini series) he's not old enough to get a driving license. So 14 or 15. After that he starts driving the Red Bird (he chases Azrael, Red Bird to Batmobile, so Knightfall is closing up) He's mostly in High School so throughout the 90s, he ages 4 years. 15 to 16 to 17 to maybe 18 (whereas the Kid from Metropolis/Hawaii got stuck at 16, forever) Oh, and that time with Klarion. That was important. As well as Titans Tomorrow. I like this thread. Thanks for bringing it up. YJ rocks!

@inferiorego "One of the biggest films of the summer was Guardians of the Galaxy, a C-list Marvel team of no-name characters,"

still haven't seen it, don't know if i want to. It's cos they have a talking raccoon. Kids love talking pets. Marvel makes their movies for kids, and almost make a mockery of superheroes. Instead of stuff like Captain Mar Vell and the Inhumans, or the X Men. There were 3 X Men movies (and they announced an Inhumans movie and we know Thanos is going to be in something, and Secret Wars might be a thing) but remember how the X Men TAS used to be? dude, it was a cartoon, with some sort of fantasy in the form of mutant powers, but also very action themed and adult. The bodies of those superheroes gave me a new reason to live. First Class and Future Past were awesome, nothing to complain there. But the first 3,.... they did have a lot of drama that was definitely not child-audience, and heavy political themes, like the X Men apparently should. Liev Schreiber was also a terrific Sabretooth in Wolverine. But the first 3 X Men movies, even though i enjoyed them, and would have watched them anyway, just didn't have the same tone as it should. The Avengers of course (not a story i ever followed) is just pop culture. It actually illustrates what society is primarily like. I liked how Captain America and Avengers tied into the complete Lionsgate animation, and how Winter Soldier had some Civil War int it.

Marvel MUST have an inside guy at DC, because look at that! Groot = Swamp Thing, Garona and Spectre are both green but other than that, not much. Or, DC wanted Marvel to try the lesser known thing first, because they didn't want to bank too much.

Always enjoy an article by inferiorego, and what everyone really wants to see, is New Gods.

i didn't know Star trek had a Sh'iar race. This is only concerning the Next generation series, not the original Kirk and Spock stuff. http://www.comicvine.com/profile/blog/star-trek-silver-hawks-x-men-and-titans/101099/

i liked things like how Felicity calls work and says there's been a "death in the family". I thought this was going to be the worst episode ever and almost decided to skip it, but decided to go through in case there was something important. It was a murder mystery. The way Oliver gets up on the roof and analyses the scene, figuring out where the arrows came from,.. we don't get to see him go Batman, like Barry does in Flash. I liked how "cold and rational" he was, but Diggle was right. It seemed like it was a shock to Oliver at the sight of her body, but with Nyssa almost having killed her in the last season, i guess he was used to it. (Did "they don't target their own" make sense? was it consistent? I guess last time, Sara was a renegade, and this season, Sara had re-joined the League. I still think it was Ra's who shot her

I'd love to see a Flash movie, but I'd want it to be about Barry Allen. If so, then Bradly Cooper I think is the best choice for Allen

Actually, i think he'd be a better Wally. Couldn't get used to the guy from Hangover playing "Crew Cut"

I believe in Amazing S-M , Garfield and Harry were talking at the river, and Peter says "We don't even know if there's one Spider-Man, or if he's a woman. There's probably a Spider Girl, or not. We don't know"

That was funny. And then there was the Spider's scientific name
