Give me Iron Man vs. Batman (billionaire face-off!) and Loki vs. The Joker, and I'd be one very happy girl.

Keizer_Ghidorah: You know who I want to see in a movie or live-action TV series?

Nightwing.

And they better find the perfect guy to fill out that costume. Especially dat ass.

/haven't watched the Young Justice cartoon, is it good?


Yes. I've gotten all my daughters hooked on Young Justice, Ultimate Spiderman, Avengers, and even the Green Lantern cartoon. Of course, they've corrupted me with Phineas & Ferb and Penguins of Madagascar, so I consider it even.

True, but I've got them addicted to Spiderman & His Amazing Friends - they love Firestar... (ret-conned X-man? Seriously? STFU)

Magorn: Oldiron_79: Smackledorfer: Oldiron_79: Batman is a normal mortal human, just like the ultimate like Ninja master with lots of gadgets, A superhumanly fast character like Supes or the Flash could basically rip his spine out before he could move to start setting up his ingenious trap if not for the silly writers.

If it weren't for stupid writers, superman wouldn't have 1/10th the abilities he has. I get the annoyance with batman-always-wins, but I'd say modern day batman is closer to the old Adam West's abilities than modern day supes is to the shiat my dead read, who went from running like the wind and jumping less than a quarter mile to holding his breath while flying across galaxies, full non-magical immunity, turning back time, etc.

So I'll let batman slide on some excessive ninja skills and planning that borders on pre-cognition.

But you definitely can't accept one and biatch about the other.

OK, just look at Batmans usual complement of villains like the Joker, The Riddler, The Penguin, Catwoman, two face, etc, they are normal mortal humans with cool toys and mad ninja skills just like batman, none of them are faster than a speeding bullet, stronger than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. I mean if batman actually had to face villains with super powers and won I could see them having him win when hes facing another hero like supes, but when all the chumps he faces have no powers I just don't buy him beating a hero with powers.

I'm not a comic reader really, so perhaps this has alreeady been done, but I've always wanted to write/see a batman vs. superman movie. Set in a dystopian future where Superman basically snapped (advanced age? Super-Alzheimer's?) and decided he need to become the world's benevolent dictator. But of Course because Supes is such a rigidly moral and upright guy, he's a bit of a disaster as a ruler (think Stannis Baraetheon becoming king) and the world has become increasingly totalitarian under his rule. Ba ...


Good chunks of this story have been told. Most notably in Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Returns". But other parts of the idea have also been told before. You should check out Dark Knight Returns if nothing else. Personally I feel its a bit over rated but you might really dig it.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Batman was rehabilitated after Adam West and wasn't destroyed by George Clooney. The same can be done for the big blue cheese.

Depower him.

Take a year in the comics. Start with loss of all powers, human, eating, sleeping, sh*tting, shaving. Hell, give him a scar. Every month he gets a little tougher, a little stronger, a little faster. He can think a little quicker, see and hear a little better. And jump a little higher. Guest appearances from all over the DCU. Batman first then training and working with Nightwing and several other non-powered heroes as his powers slowly return and wrapping up with Wonder Woman, Flash and Hawkman when he can finally fly again. But on foot or in the air he can only accelerate at 32/sec2 and only maintain up to terminal velocity. More than that(to a normal max of mach 1) and he depletes his reserves of speed, strength and invulnerability. Heat vision saps his energy as well.

Still stronger than a locomotive, but not much and he gets tired.

Bullets still bounce off but they sting and can bruise depending on how fresh he is. He can be bloodied and broken but heals completely given time and rest.

Once that's all established we get a Green Lantern space story showing that in direct unfiltered sunlight(on the moon?) we get the god we know too well but that power level is only retained for a few seconds back in atmosphere.

So, why doesn't he just stay in orbit and police the world with heat vision?
I dunno, why doesn't he do that now?

They tried something like this before with the Quarrmers but it didn't stick. Batman shows it can be done and it's long overdue.


So.... Superman at World's End?
 
2012-06-08 07:04:17 PM  

Fano: Superman at World's End?


Earth's End?

I didn't say it was a new idea. It just needs to be a permanent part of continuity.
As long as he's strong, deflecting bullets and flying he's Superman. There's no reason he can't be as strong a franchise as Batman.

You should read Invincible, I think you'd dig it.

MagSeven: Invincible


Maybe. I pretty much gave up about ten years ago. Had limited myself(with some exceptions) to the big two for sentimental and economic reasons and really enjoyed Ostrander's Spectre and Jonn Jonnz, everything from Ennis and Hourman and Legionnaires But another boring pointless reboot, sorting through the crap to find decent titles, the expense even if you found something great, logistics of storage just made it more work than it was worth.

Give me a twelve inch tablet and a monthly fee for unlimited reading and I might go back.

Or a twelve inch tablet and the capacity for infinite theft. If you do opt for thievery, the New 52 Swamp Thing and Animal Man are exemplary. As is Marvel's "Journey into....MYSTERY."
 
2012-06-08 09:19:55 PM  

9beers: Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman vs Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow.

Who wins?


Batman vs Iron Man: both are billionaire industrialists and superheroes. Chances are, they call it a draw after a few rounds and go get schwarma.
Wonder Woman vs Thor: a goddess against a god. Evenly matched, but I'd give the edge to her.
Green Lantern vs Black Widow: Rayner would fight her, but Jordan would be asking her out.
Superman vs Hulk: Superman, easily.
That leaves Flash to clean up the mess.

PonceAlyosha: Or a twelve inch tablet


On a related note, how lucky is the whole nearly dead comics industry, which was started by recycling Sunday sections, that what looks to be the default media device of the 21st century is also the perfect format for nearly cost-free comics publishing?

Is Warner or Disney smart enough to include a digital copy of the latest issue of SOMETHING with EVERY movie they sell?

Not quite cost free. They're still stuck paying for name talent, bnecause unfortunately, people tend to follow creators instead of good stories. And, their prices aren't yet worthwhile. A Buck ninety nine for 20 pages of content, which is usually only a sixth of a story? You can get a full 44 minute TV show for a buck ninety nine, compared to a comic book that takes 5 minutes to read.

And that's if they're not charging the same price for the digital version as they are for a hard copy.

JokerMattly: RyansPrivates:
Superman has been lame in every live action adapation, with the exception of Superman the movie (and a nice nod to the Donner cut of Superman II). The best Superman has been in the animated universe. For instance, the world of cardboard.

Don't forget The Man Who Has Everything. I genuinely felt bad for Kal-El by the end of that episode. He's almost completely alone in the universe - and even if he finds companionship here, it will never be the same. He's been denied what could be considered true happiness in life, and he's been forced to fill that void in his life with duty.

Also, seeing Superman actually angry was downright terrifying.


Still love "Destroyer" for the fact that Superman just Un-LOADS on Darkseid.

FirstNationalBastard: Not quite cost free.


I was referring to paper, ink, shipping, the reasons given for the ever increasing cover prices for the last thirty years. Electronically, a hundred copies or a million(ha!) the cost is essentially the same.

Unlike movies, books or music, they have new material every month and a built in reason for buying multiple titles. Creative subscription pricing could undercut piracy and build business. Just spitballing but 5 bucks for the next five issues? 10 bucks a month for 10 titles of my choice? 20 for unlimited?

Cuz right now they're getting nothing from me.

I agree. It's equally applicable to real human beings. But it's particularly illustrative with comic book characters since they're so much more sharply drawn than a human is.

Galileo's Daughter: Superman vs Hulk: Superman, easily.


It depends on how hard and fast a tactic Supes takes with the Hulk. It's been more and more established that Superman basically starts low and just keeps ratcheting up his strength until it's enough to beat the bad guy so he doesn't go overboard and cause unintentional damage. But he has limits.

Hulk has a very high baseline, but that base isn't the ultimate. Abomination, for instance, is stronger than Hulk's baseline. That's how he's beaten Hulk a few times over the years. By basically blitzing him.

But the longer you fight Hulk, the angrier - and hence stronger - he gets. And he has no known upper limit.

So if Supes doesn't blitz him, in the long run Hulk will always win.

And in the Marvel vs DC crossover years ago, Supes said it took everything he had to beat Hulk. He barely managed it.

I'll accept that it's a layman's use of a very specific term like 'literally', and admit that I could be wrong. I'm no psychiatrist. But as I understand it, the second major pillar of Schizophrenia other than hallucinations is delusion. And to my mind, thinking you're someone you're not is delusional.

Though I'm going to shoot myself in the foot here in terms of my affirmation above that Batman *isn't* schizophrenic, consider the scene from Batman Beyond:

Terry: Tell me something - why were you so sure those voices weren't coming from you?
Bruce: Well, first, I know I'm not psychotic.
Terry: I hope your other reason is more convincing.
Bruce: Second, the voice kept calling me "Bruce." In my mind, that's not what I call myself.
Terry: What do you call yourself? [Bruce just looks at him for a moment] Oh, yeah. I suppose you would. [Batman voice] But that's my name now.
Bruce: Tell that to my subconscious.

That's the statement of a crazy man there.
