    3. Ben Affleck as Batman?? Gimme a break. Its as if Joe was Peter Parker.
    4. Why would Batman fight Superman??
    5. Yawn.

      Raising a child is akin to knowing you're getting fired in 18 years and having to train your replacement without actively sabotaging them.

      Well, I for one am glad you aren't angered. Although, I posted it to anger you. You show great restraint.

    Just wondering.

      Via an extremely convoluted story line.

        Did you read The Dark Knight Returns? Like that.

        One of the keys is a weakened Superman. No idea how they will do this in the film.

        But I trust that it will make sense.....if a story of an alien that looks exactly like us...and can fly...makes sense.

        Did you see Man Of Steel? This Superman isn't quite the same godlike being as in the comics. These Kryptonians can be knocked out by a small missile fired from a jet. Anyway, I anticipate a great movie experience.

        By the way, for some reason...there is a real bias between DC and Marvel fans.

        I don't understand the reason. Can you explain it? It's a serious question.

          I don't understand the reason. Can you explain it? It's a serious question.

          Unfortunately, Captain SassyPants (my wife) wants to watch a movie rather than watch me write a dissertation on why Marvel and DC fans dislike the other side, so I'll put it this way: it's the same reason Coke/Pepsi, Apple/Microsoft, Apple/Android fans hate each other. You pick a side and toss shade (I'm hip with the lingo!) at the other side*.

          Growing up, I found Marvel characters more relatable and DC characters generic. I've always found Superman unbelievable boring. Ultimately, he flawless. That doesn't make for very interesting stories. Meanwhile, Peter Parker is worrying about picking up Aunt May's arthritis prescription and how he's going to get MJ's bra off while he's battling Doc Ock. Marvel comes at you with Pathos and hits you square in the face. DC tells a story with a certain kind of distance that I always found off-putting. This, of course, is based on my readership from 25-30 years ago.


          *This is not the reason many fans hate the Yankees. People hate the Yankees because they are evil incarnate. I added this comment specifically because it will mean absolutely nothing to you.


          Added later: Mike touched on part of Supe's limitation as a character as I was writing and getting stared down by the ol' lady.

        Pretty much or as Claude just suggested by making the character less than he is supposed to be (which is just another form of convolution). To me thats always been the problem with Superman on the big screen. It takes a lot out of a story line and the investment you make in the lead character when he is billed as a superhero with all major powers and just one weakness.

      It would be very hard for Batman to defeat Superman and lack of sleep would make it worse.

        The main weakness that Superman has...is that he's being played by an Englishman.....

        Man, taking acting jobs from native Kryptonians. It just ain't right.

          Stopping for a nice cup of tea and a cucumber sandwich periodically could be dangerous for the man of British steel. But, when Batman stops for coffee and dougnuts....

          It all evens out.

      ....unfortunately you probably just put another bullet in Riffle's gun against DC

      Essentially the Doctor Dolittle of the sea. The superhero that when in trouble.....

      Calls fish.

      They've made some interesting changes to him though

      When I was a kid, I thought Aquaman was silly. But the last several animated Justice League movies have him far more interesting....and powerful. Not quite on par with Superman, but powerful....and regal.

      It is not the drinking that is impressive, you should see what he can do with a gallon of water and a serving of asparagus.

      Pretty damn powerful.

      Aquaman can drink ten gallons of water in one sitting. That is his power. It may not seem like much, but he's won a whole lot of bar bets with it.
