Far?? Far?? Really?? Though it was a Saturday morning kids SHOW, The Super Friends
had a long run....ran from 1973 to 1986
and who are the kids that grew up watching those shows? They are today's 40 and 50 somethings......Aquaman is indeed a household name. I think many fans have sadly bought into this mindset that he's not a respectable hero based on some SNL spoofs.
Even the Showtime series Entourage
has kept his name out front.....in Hollywood, any publicity is good publicity.
Where has the name "Ant Man" been bandied about?? No where.
DC doesn't believe in any of their character except Superman and Batman....They tried GL and goofed.....They need to try it again.....If they need to bring in Nolan for "ALL
" of their heroes, so be it! LOL
