In the televised Crisis on Infinite Earths, Cryer's Lex has no trouble in believing Tom Welling's Clark is Superman, but he feels his own world's Clark Kent could not be Superman as he 'can't see past his glasses'

Yeah, well, everything not Brandon Routh was f*cking horrible about that entire fiasco, so let's not even talk about that sh*tshow, eh? CW can entirely kiss my ass and choke on my c*ck, their DC sh*t is garbage for 15-year old girls.

Continuing an angle I took earlier and found its way to Denny O'Neil's tribute thread...Damien is not technically Bruce's son, at least pre-New 52. I don't know about afterwards. Damien is a DNA mesh of Bruce Wayne and Ra's al Ghul just like the Superboy clone is a mesh up of Kal-el and Lex Luthor. There is the maybe rude question of, do they even have a soul? Assuming DNA meshes do not are they real people and legally recognized? If Bruce were to recognize Damien as his actual son who does he says is the child's mother? These questions have been bouncing around in my mind for awhile, but I do not think it is ever brought to dialogue in the comics.

Also, is it the guilt that Bruce feels about Jason dying that enables him to forgive Jason time and again for being a murderer? Jason did it to himself though his birth mother not running off with him and letting Joker clobber him to cover up her stealing charity funds is not it is still not on Bruce.By not putting Jason in Arkham is Bruce not enabling a killer? Jason will never stop. Maybe these questions come to me because I am a Dick Grayson fan. However, their legal statuses are questionable and Bruce enabling Jason is to.

So the latest rumour from Rich's rag is that Superman will become the leader of The Authority in 2021.

Yeah, The Authority, an organisation that was used as the inspiration for Manchester Black's Elite, which Superman ideologically opposed

So are they even gonna lampshade the fact that one of them is clearly a Batman stand-in while the other one is a Superman pastiche, and by the way also gay? One would feel like they have to.

Boy, everything sure sucks, doesn't it? Aye-yi-YI already.

More details on this angle

It was originally slated for 5G and would have been the status quo for Clark as a much older man, he'd be a supporting character in the role while Jon would be the mainline Superman.

I know DC Comics very well, but The Authority? Never heard of it. Is this some shady government thing?

It's one of those "What if the Justice League were jerks" kinda things. And their "Superman" and "Batman" are gay married.

I've read a little, it was alright, but like many things, not as clever as it thinks it is.

Reads like a mix between farce and liberal political statements. I would rather see the Justice Lords storyline. Loved the arc.

So Joker War, Bruce does not need money to best Joker. He wins with a determination and intelligence to prevail. Dick Grayson is restored to normal. Barbara gets over her Killing Joke moment and brushes Bard aside in favor of Mr. Grayson. Harley heals up and gets the best of the college kid in the end and has a truce with the Batfamily. I think it sums it up. Haha. The only question is with 5G pushed aside what comes after that?

I am enjoying reading a few back issues. Trying to figure out what to read next.

I just read Green Lantern: From Beyond The Unknown digital series first issue. Something made me laugh. Hal needs more Earth bound stories. In the far reaches of space not interacting with classic villains has been a problem since Rebirth. A guardian chastised Hal for being present on Earth for too long. Interestingly, he is undercover on Earth and states the fact he has not spent much time at home. Also, the guardian states that he is the only green lantern in sector 2814. Interestingly he was fighting Dr. Polaris, one of the neglected Green Lantern villains who was killed off in Infinite Crisis.There are too many green lanterns in sector 2814! Half a dozen at least. I guess it is safe to say I am putting continuity ahead of story and this story is out of continuity.

Yeah, I missed most of the last decade but apparently it's still mostly "GL as Space Cop" from everything I've heard, which indeed has been a huge issue since GL Rebirth which was almost 20 damn years ago, now. Granted, a lot of GL stories have been set in space but not ALL or even most of them. I mean, one of the most well-spoken of arc in the character's history is the whole "Hard-Traveling Heroes" bit with him and Green Arrow.

I really like the space cop stuff but it shouldn't be so predominant. GL has been "spectacle on top of spectacle" and forever trying to top the last "epic". Things could stand to be a bit more grounded.

I love how grouchy fans are getting in regards to Morrison's Green Lantern. That book is a high-brow blast and the complaints come more from a place of intellectual inadequacy than any legit criticism.
