    The DC Discussion Thread - For all things relating to DC Comics



    The impending arrival of my copy of Arkham City has left me feeling rather nostalgic.

    So, I decided to make this discussion thread.

    Here, we discuss all things DC; be it the main comic line, the DCAU, any of the other cartoons, the Dark Knight movies, any of the animated films, and the like.

    You get my point.

    Am I the only one who really got into comics because of the DCAU?

    Although, I'm not terribly fond of the current comic continuity, being that much of it SUCKS. Of course, there are a few gems here and there, but they are few and far between.

    Anyone following any ongoing DC stuff at the moment?

    I'm watching Young Justice and Batman: The Brave and the Bold; I'll also start playing Batman: Arkham City tonight.

    Both of the aforementioned shows are surprisingly good, given that I had little hope for either of them when they first came out.

    Favorite DC character(s)?

    Batman has and always will be my favorite super hero EVER. My favorite Batman would have to be DCAU Batman. Though I am particularly fond of DCAU Question, Flash, Wonder Woman, and Superman.

    Favorite DC superhero team?

    Honestly, I gotta go with the DCAU Justice League. I adore the hell out of them. They just all work together so well ...

    Favorite Robin? (MANDATORY QUESTION PEOPLE but not really)

    Dick Grayson.

    Finally, I'd like ask if there's anything you guys have always wanted to see in a DC property (be it a comic, a cartoon, or something else).

    I have long craved a Batfamily show. Preferably, all of the following would be major characters: Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Barbara Gordon, and Cassandra Cain.

    I would love to see them all interacting together and watching the different dynamics play out and such.

    FUCK YEAH, DC!!!



    Aside that:

    Favorite DC Hero?
    It'd be a tie between Booster Gold, The Question, Doctor Fate, and Batman, of course. But really, there's too many favorites that I can list.

    Favorite Hero Team?
    Justice League and all its counterparts. But the Justice Society of America is also a big fave. The ORIGINAL superheroes before JL.

    Favorite Robin?
    Dick. Can't get any better than the first.

    Do you have any favorite versions of those heroes in question?

    Well, I'm easily satisfied with most character adaptions. Both AU!Question and CO!Question are cool, Booster Gold is always a laugh, with Doctor Fate I prefer Kent Nelson, and Batman's Batman.

    As for a series I'd like to see animated?
    Like you said, a Batfamily series would be freaking awesome. But a series delving into the more mystical side of DC would be pretty cool too. Like Madame Xanadu, Phantom Stranger, John Constintine, and Zatarra. Hell, a Hellblazer animated series would rock.

    Hm ... definitely.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a bit more of Captain Marvel, either.

    Man, I could really go for some awesome DC fanfiction. Like, something really epic in length and presentation.

    Apparently there is a Batman cartoon coming out soon where his sidekicks will be Alfred with a gun and the teen hero Katana.

    While Alfred is awesome, I'm perplexed as to why they would use Katana. I would much prefer Batgirl or Robin.

    Perhaps its going deal with the Outsiders and their ilk.

    Say, what's your stance on Flashpoint and the reboot?

    On one hand ... it does help them cut out a lot of the dumb or confusing crap that's been popping up. (Like when any of the Kryptonians punch hard enough to break reality)

    But I know in my heart we'll still see stupid things like that come up.

    And on the other hand ... I have not been hearing good things about the reboot. Apparently DC has been turning all the awesome heroines into cock-slobbering nymphos. For example, Starfire apparently has no qualms cheating on her boyfriend. That I do not like. At all. I might have thought it was an exaggeration, if I had not seen a few panels.

    Yeah, not liking the new personalities for some of the girls.

    And Barbara being okay? While good, it kinda takes the spotlight away from the other Batgirls.

    Barbara was good as Oracle.

    That is her role.

    I don't see why she needed to become Batgirl again.

    I don't know much about DC - I'm mainly a Marvel fan - but I'd like some advice on where to start reading.

    Interesting thing to me about it is that DC heroes are fewer and seem less 'human' in their portrayal. That is, they're fewer and more powerful but the world is less believable.

    That's gets brought up a lot between fans. In fact, JLA/Avenger crossover touches on that subject: when the Avengers see how much the DCverse loves their heroes, they're surprised. Cap even accuses the JLA of being tyrants with god-complexes.

    Yeah, I think I read that one.

    Just interesting to see a different take on things. In real life, the reception to superheroes would probably be something in between, and obviously colored by our media experiences. Except most would still be illegal vigilantes, I suppose.

    I like the DC heroes more, but I acknowledge that that doesn't necessarily make them more believable.

    Like Neko said, it was touched upon in a crossover event.

    In DC, heroes are treated like nobility. In Marvel, they are not as appreciated for their efforts.

    I believe the event in question that made Cap so angry was finding a statue of Superman.

    Now, ignoring the silliness of such a thing, the Superhero Registration Act would get stomped before it could even truly begin if someone tried it in DC.

    Yeah. The DC verse seems to be more softer when it comes to meta/superhumans. Marvel goes along the line of more cynical approaches of superheroes.

    Especially Ultimate Marvel. >__>

    And well, there was a comic book series called 'Batman and the Outsiders'. It's possible they didn't just let it fester in oblivion.

    Favorite DC character(s)?

    The original JLA trinity, of course: Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman. I also like The Flash, Zatanna, Green Arrow and Power Girl.

    Favorite DC superhero team?

    DCAU Justice League. possibly the JSA too.

    Favorite Robin?

    Dick Grayson, followed by Tim Drake and finally Damian Wayne. He may be a little bastard, but he's a good little bastard and he kinda grew on me more during the 3rd arc on 'Batman and Robin must die!'
    It's easy to believe in ideals, but it's harder to keep them when things go bad.

    The only DC comics I own are two Supergirl issues. The psychic Supergirl with Heaven vs Hell undertones, anyway. I own no more comics.

    Lethum!

    *Glomps*

    I don't own many of the comics myself, don't have the money to be constantly buying them.

    Favorite battle?
    Mine is the Justice League versus Brainthor (DCAU).

    Favorite moment?
    It speaks for itself.
