I think evidence for this was going with the batman returns Bruce instead of normal batman as their character base. It success of that one shot story was because it was obvious going in you were getting older different versions of these "heroes" for a unique story perspective. It was a comic so it was for people of the comic outlet. Superman was a gov puppet who had ripped off the arm of green arrow, Bruce was a grizzled and broken hero after fighting the good fight and coming out losing. Also what was with Lex? D.C. had 2 things i was excited for batman, and excellent villains. They kicked ass with batmans action scenes but flopped with Lex Luthor
That's why it's rushed you could tell they read what someone had told them were some dark gritty and best written stories and thought that would click with audiences. Nope actually gonna have to do character development.
I think it would hurt but hurt like if a woman punched me. Not that I would know what that felt like but I imagine it's like damn that hurt I'd rather you not do that again but I'm in no real danger here
@hopesummersforthefuture: although commander x sounds great. I wouldn't consider the mythological character at all when thinking about cyclops it's more like when you see that single ruby eye you know you're done for. It brings attention to his look it's more like what other people would call him no matter what. I also always liked to picture that even if he didn't need the visor his eyes if he was about to or currently firing would be one "eye" just from the magnitude
