I got bored of Nightwing pretty quickly. There wasn't anything wrong with it, per se, but it just wasn't all that exciting to me. Kind of the same issue I'm having with Aquaman now.

Does that mean Superman can reverse time by flying around the world, throw out cellophane S's and repair the Great Wall of China just by looking at it again?

I wouldn't count the cellophane S out. The Phantom Zone prisons have already gone back to looking like 2-dimensional shards, just like in the movie.

And my disgust of the nostalgia for those movies continues to grow...

So just how old is Alfred Pennyworth approximately?

867. He's remarkably well preserved.

It sure takes a lot of talent to make Nightwing boring.

Isn't Alfred supposed to be late fifties?

Seems like he'd need to be older than that. He's typically seen as older than Thomas Wayne. Let's be generous and say when Thomas died, he was only 35, with Bruce being 10, and Alfred being 45. Now that Bruce is at least 30, Alfred would be around 65 at a minimum.

No, no. Not recently.

I mean, in the mid to late 90s when he had the all black costume, when and why did he switch back to the classic grey and black bar costume? I know it was the early 2000s, but I don't know what the "reasoning" was, or what issue exactly...

It was because whoever was drawing it at the time decided that looked better. There was no issue where Bats and Alfred had some in depth conversation about whether or not he should ditch the oval. Had to have went down after No man's Land.

When did WB take ownership of DC Comics?

And it's what issue that was that I'd like to know.

I'm pretty sure it happened when they made the 1978 Superman film.

What would become Warner Communications Inc (Kinney National Co.) bought what would become DC Comics in 1967.

Ok, seriously though. How did Thor get better? 15 words or less. I don't really care that much but gimme something. Dude died. Now he's alive. What's the deal?

No, it was 1969.

National Periodical Publications (DC Comics) was purchased by the Kinney National Company in 1967. Then in '69, they were bought out by Warner Bros.

I thought it was the other way around, and that Kinney bought out Warner Bros7. Which brought them under the Warner conglomerate.

You're right. I read it wrong.

Either way, it wasn't owned by "Warner Bros." until 1969.

Might as well post it here too, since this is more the place it belongs:

Karnilla worked some magic mojo to take advantage of his death by wiping his memory from everyone's minds and replacing him with Tanarus, who was actually Ulik in disguise. She had formed a pact with Geirrodur, the king of the trolls, to use Thor's death against the Serpent (which was prophesied, remember, so everyone knew about it) as their means of finally taking revenge on Asgard. So Thor goes to where forgotten gods go, which is apparently a long-ass line being marched into the Demogorge's mouth to be consumed.

Kid Loki, however, has a vague notion that something's not right and, upon investigating, starts remembering Thor vaguely. Thor himself starts to remember who he is in the death line and starts to realize he doesn't belong there. His memory's slow return also makes Mjolnir return to him, which completes his memory. He inspires two other forgotten gods to have faith in themselves again and they begin to remember who they are too. One turns out to be a war goddess, who helps Thor bust out of the line to the Demogorge. Thor fully remembers who he is by then and they head for Earth.

Heimdall also starts to put the pieces together and eventually confronts Tanarus. They fight and Heimdall smashes the magic pendant that was disguising Ulik as Tanarus just as Thor and his two new space-god friends arrive. They have a big fight wherein Frigga f***s Karnilla up, Thor straight-up kills Ulik like he's a speck of dust, and the other Asgardians beat Geirrodur and his troll army. Karnilla and Geirrodur are magically imprisoned in Ulik's skull somehow and that's that.

There's only been one back up story with Billy, and instead of the bright eyed sprout who was given the power of Shazam for his inherent goodness (which we all knew and loved), now he's a smart assed orphan who will probably have some spiritual journey in order to earn the power, rather than just deserving it for being good to begin with. Freddy, Mary, Tawny, etc. have been been shown or mentioned. They probably don't exist.
