BTW he's said he wants to write a Superman in WW2 comic

not sure if both these ideas are tied together but it sounds brilliant either way

Yes! Sounds freaking awesome! I've always wanted to see Frank Miller do a Comic book with Superman as the main character

@light1150:

"Marvel ain't beating DC in any sense"??? The only time they've beaten them is during the first while of a reboot (it happened during N52 and happened during Rebirth and after the first few issues the sales fade, except for Batman) ... Batman is "One of their best selling titles" ... One of??? More like their one ... and only (in the long run) and "refusing to look at their books"??? I see the level of talent they've always put on their Batman books ... and the relative drop-off when compared to most of their others (generally speaking, of course) ... again, that's all part of the argument I've made. It's a long-term kind of picture. But since it's been going on this way for ages now, it's probably too late for DC to change tactic, anyway.

If you want to ignore the facts and figures, be my guest. Doesn't bother me either way. I don't have a stake in this, anymore. But at least you've been pretty civilised in our discussion. I appreciate that. It's rare. The fact that some posters here have reacted so strongly to my initial claim (and the truths I've pointed to which back it up), while unable to actually disprove it ... does suggest that my statement has hit a nerve. As the old saying goes, the truth hurts ... and denial isn't too far away. I guess, that seems to be the case.

Ah, well. I'm done. See ya

@light1150: Nowhere near as much as Marvel. That's the whole point I was making. That's why Marvel keeps beating them

@light1150: That's true. Fair point.

Still, at least Marvel are spreading the love a bit across their range of characters. When you look at all the superhero output DCWB have done over the last 25 years (animation, films, video games, etc) ... 90% of it is all about Batman. And now Justice League part 2 has been delayed for ... wait for it ... the new Batman movie! (what a surprise)

@eto: Dude. You haven't disproved my claim at all. You've just thrown a couple cheap insults that might make a 12 year old proud (if you're lucky).

Look at the top ten sellers for the year. Marvel have Spiderman, Iron Man, Civil War, Venom ... DC has Batman, Batman, Batman. (This has pretty much been the case for ages)

These kinds of extremely one-sided results can only come from DC putting all their eggs in one basket and Marvel spreading it around

@handofprometheus: ^^^As above^^^

No surprises there.

Marvel treat all their characters equally. DC don't. That's the main difference. Pretty much since the 80's, DC/WB have proven again and again the only one of their characters they care about is Batman. That basically makes them a one-tick pony. The funny (and tragic) thing is, DC/WB are probably aware that they're presenting themselves as a one-trick pony ... but they don't seem to care. How sad.

Well done.

I hear you, man. I was disappointed too. But sadly there's nothing we can do about it.

Hopefully, DC's animation department will continue to build upon the awesome DCU they've been building with Justice League War, Throne of Atalntis, JL vs TT ... maybe we should just start talking about what ones they should do next, just to try and keep some positive energy around :)

On page 192 of Frank Miller's Dark Knight Strikes Again, Superman's daughter Lara asks him about sex, to which he replies: "Never with Terrans (earth dwellers), they're fragile."

So you are wrong when you say (in your original post): "In all the comics, TV series and films have were shown, that they can have an intimate relationship without self-mutilation."

There is at least one world in the comics multiversity where Kryptonians and Humans are sexually incompatible because of the super powers, molecular structure, etc and that's the Dark Knight Universe. (Go read it for yourself if you don't believe me ... Dark Knight Strikes Again page 192)

Lastly, if it wasn't so hilarious it would be disrespectful slander of you to suggest that you know what every SMWW fan likes, dislikes, thinks, says, believes ... because that's essentially what you are doing with this post ... to suggest that every SMWW fan believes in the whole 'Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex' concept is an accusation based purely on assumption and opinion ... not proof
