Any battle thread where people use Knightfall feats for Bane while having no idea How Bane actually got to the point of "Breaking the Bat"

Bane beat up Batman in the recent Grant Morrisson Run (Bat-Bane to be exact). Had nothing to do with wits or intelligence but pure muscle.

And All-Star Superman sums up perfectly why I don't like Superman.

I find his Batman work highly overrated and didn't like Final Crisis. I'm not too motivated to read any of the other titles if his so-called masterpiece isn't all that good.

There has yet to be a good superman movie, and other than 300 and 50% of watchmen his movies suck. So excuse me for being a tad bit cynical.

Dawn of the Dead was very good too.

The presentation did have its moments but the story as well as the dialogue was very inauthentic and underperformed also the movie overall was very disappointing. The only good thing about the movie would probably be Mark Strong`s performance as Sinestro.

Mark Strong is always good though. Need a badass villain? Get Mark Strong.

Why should he? It's not like Optimus Prime gets shit done, it's always a group effort. I wouldn't want to read any Optimus Prime standalone volume.

This will surely become an issue more if/when sites like Comixology or Amazon go out of business and there is a multitude of content that will no longer be accessible. Plus, adding in the ability to use things on the 'cloud', it takes even your virtual, downloaded copy gone until you can access the internet.

Personally I always think of this whenever I buy things digitally, but then again we live in a world where things are reliant on devices that need to be used to access this content...so even then, if the people providing the content are still around, but the hardware manufacturer goes out of business or you break it, you are at a total loss again until you find something that can be substituted....

Amazons AZW format is already hacked and can be converted to epub or any other format that calibre supports.
And since comixology (the flash player) caches the jpgs in your local browser cache you can simply grab the files. A script might help though.

It's probably illegal but if you want to backup your digital comic collection you can. What bugs me is that it's actually easier to just pirate those comics than create a legit backup.

The same goes with the DC universe. There's Zeus (the father of Wonder Woman), the new gods / old gods but also the Monitors, who shape the universe(s) etc etc. It doesn't make sense but hey, it's comics.

Although I think that it's a great idea to put a little diversity into the comics, just to include a little bit of the real world in comics, I think they didn't handle it very well. I mean come on, that is like the worst coming-out ever! I know that mainstream comics aren't about being subtle, but "hey, now that you told me about the Joker shooting you, I'll now tell you that I'm a transgender woman. Without any context or anything". And then Babs just conveniently has to leave so they don't have to talk about this.

WTF? Just put a little bit of effort in your writing and have them talk about it for at least two or three pages instead of 3 throwaway panels!
