I hear you Thundercrack85, but I remember when people were all psyched for Superman Returns and expecting it to be a hit. Don't know how MOS will go down, I'm hoping it's a hit, but we'll see

And Superman, who operates in full daylight, with the full approval (usually) of local and national authorities and with his face completely uncovered cannot have a traditional secret identity without everyone who has ever seen Clark Kent looking foolish. Perhaps I am jaded - way too many of the Superman comics I read as a child involved Supes going to extraordinary lengths to conceal his identity, using super-ventriloquism and super-hypnosis so that he could safely do battle with underpowered antagonists like the Toy and Terra men. And the character simply doesn't need it - he could still keep a secret identity by using a journalistic pen name (Calvin Ellis?) and keeping his ties to Lois, Jimmy and Perry. The public would know him as Clark Kent, the nice boy from Kansas who grew up to be the man the tourists call "Superman".

It's wishful thinking, but I am hoping the reboot does away with Clark's dual identities. Otherwise we're certain to get a scene in which Amy Adams looks directly at a glasses-free Henry Cavill and asks "Have you seen Clark?"
It hasn't, the glasses are in. It's a disguise that works just fine, and your suggestion is near enough the exact same disguise.

I think most of the members I remember being "bad" got banned or at least don't come on anymore.

I do see some "good" members that are worse now than in the past

I'm saying that it wasnt like people were talking about it as much) it did fine.

I expect TASM2 to do better.


But more importantly, what does that have to do with Justice LEague
you damned fool

Best part of resurrecting old threads is to see how many "Banned" posters you can count on a single page, haha.

The initial stepping stones i remember back then was loosely:

Man of Steel -> Justice League -> Solo Spinoffs/MoS Sequel -> JL 2

To the thread title: then it bombs. Life won't stop and everyone will go back to their normal lives. It's just a movie.

Considering the way people are losing their minds, the obvious doesn't seem so obvious.
