whizbangthedirtfarmer: FirstNationalBastard: moothemagiccow: Confabulat: Like I suppose most everyone realizes about the era they sort of grew up in, I never noticed the 90s were so weird when I was there at the time.

At age 12 I was just thankful Jim Lee was so good at drawing titties

He wasn't, you were 12.

Yes, I grew up during the Jim Lee era, too, and we were all IMPRESSED by how great he was (and MacFarlane).  Then, when we grew up, we realized that basic anatomy was lost on these guys, and most of their impressive style resulting from inking and colors.

\still, Lee could draw the shiat out of a boot
\\never seen such detailed boots before

Hello flimsy and inevitable excuse to trash on Rob Liefeld's inability to draw feet or boots at all.

Esroc: I have a fondness for the 90's superhero costumes. I mean, yeah they are ridiculous, but they're so much fun to look at. The 90's Techno-Viking Thor is still one of my favorites.

That and Electric Blue Superman. I've always been a massive Superman fan, but at the same time I've never been ridiculously attached to the "iconic" features of the character. Give me an "S" emblem and a general selfless boyscout personality and I'm good. So Electric Superman was an exciting departure that I quite enjoyed as a kid. Plus even today I still think he looks all kinds of badass.

Yeah, the character of Blue Superman was alright, it's just that they farked with Supes, ya know?  That and when Red Superman showed up, it all went to hell.

Skorn was a great part of that arc though.

Raug the Dwarf: They obviously didn't research this well. If they did, they wouldn't have left out one of the most XXXXXTREEEMMMEEE!! makeovers of the 90's.....

Dammit, I hated this outfit.

Amazing how he can come up with just about any excuse not to draw feet.

Speaking of Jim Lee, I expected to see Psylocke.  An English girl changed into an Asian ninja chick.  XTREME!!
