@show_the_maw I assume that people who champion Keaton and complained when Affleck was cast are too young to remember the outrage when the funny guy from Mr. Mom and Johnny Dangerously was cast. It was history repeating.
@chienfou@tinamarie1974 They could have improved massively on the Linda Carter Wonder Woman costume without making it sexier.
I can only imagine the designer’s mental conversation.
"We need to cinch her waist in a little more… A little more… No, a LOT more. It doesn’t look like she’s wearing a big, blue diaper at all yet.
“No, don’t shape the damn thing like her body! Squeeze her body into the costume! I don’t care where her breasts attach to her torso! What are you doing, you slacker!”
@regnowsin a friend is a huge Blue Beetle fan. He was once at a comicon and got picked to be on stage for trivia with some comic creators. A Blue Beetle question came up and we have a video of him grinning like a Cheshire Cat.
Mon-El (from the comics, not the Supergirl TV show) or any of several other LHS members (from silver age comics, not cartoon) like Triplicate Girl/Duo Damsel, Cosmic Boy, Brainic Five, Lightning Lad, etc.
But Mon-El can do anything Superboy can do but isn’t hurt by Kryptonite, so that’s a win.
@craigthom Who was the hero in LHS that retired because every time he used his powers it reduced his life by one day? I have been racking my brain ever since watching the show “Invincible” which has a character called Monster Girl that has sort of the opposite happen: using her powers causes her to age backwards, so she looks about 12 even though she is 26 years old.
Too, too many characters (that aren’t necessarily SUPER). Dr. Fate, The Creeper, Deadman, Kamandi, Robotman, Mister Miracle, Lobo, Vril Dox, Swamp Thing…
Growing up, though, my favorite comics were probably House of Mystery and House of Secrets, so Cain and Abel have to join the crew.
Was He Man a dc character? I was obsessed with he man when I was really little. I had a lot of the original comics sitting in a high shelf in my closet at my dads house and brother threw them away without even asking me. At least I still have my action figures.
OMG I TOTALLY FORGOT: Dial H for Hero (from House of Mystery)!!! Best hero ever because it’s a different hero with different powers every time!!!
Robby Reed became Squid, Quake-Master, King Coil, Hornet-Man, Shadow-Man, Mighty Moppet, King Kandy, Future-Man, Human Bullet, Super-Charge, the Mole, Mr. Echo, Hypno-Man, the Cometeer and the Human Starfish (I remembered the series, but had to look up the heroes).
@goldnectar Good point. I also hate the way they make everything dark and sinister, like “Riverdale” - that’s just wrong. They could have made the same show without pretending it’s about the Archie gang.
