I think we have enough. The novelty wears off when its over exposed. For example, I love a good Krypto story (Superman 712 FTW), but I don't want to see him in every issue. I don't want to see him once every 10 issues.

@G-MAN Jimmy Palmiotti seems like a really nice guy, and he's super funny. Any chance you could ask him to guest star on one of the podcasts?

Maybe include more under a kids' imprint. I can't see why we can't have more super-animals if they are written for children.

For adults... pass. Or at least, I get that a hero or villain might have a pet or own a highly skilled, but normal, animal... but 'super' animals... I can pass. Not much of Krypto fan, though I get why other people love it.

So where does line get drawn? Because right about now I'm thinking about a chimp with a flaming skull head riding an all black tricycle with flaming wheels.

Just as every super needs to have the main Man/Woman, sidekick & younger opposite gendered sickkcik, to be a complete family they need a mascot.

But they need to do more than just dog or cat. For example, give Atlee that Super-snail.

I hope Aquadog gets some type of powers & abilities somehow along the road. Maybe they'll run into an Atlantean Artifact enabling him to breathe underwater and communicate to sea life. NOW, THAT WOULD BE COOL!

Can't Forget About AQUADOG!

Brian Buccellato had good point of why there aren't that much comic titles out pertaining to any animal superhero or villain besides those who play the roles inside the main "superhero" title. For example, Ch'p in the Green Lantern, he's a squirrel with a green power ring but plays as a sidekick for other major Corps Members. People don't really like reading about an animal with superhero powers cause first off, it loses the realistic form of the comic book, secondly they are not good protagonist for villains who are more human-like. So if there would be a conflict in the story arc then there would have to be a villainous animal such as a snake or something creepy and evil looking to even out the playing field.

I for one don't actually agree with that. To me its all in the writing. Also, this exists.
