Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Ranking the Silver Age Legion of Super Heroes
"The thing that gets overlooked with Wonder Woman's status in the JSA is that under their original rules, any hero that got promoted to their own solo title was automatically "promoted" to honorary membership, the status Superman &…"

"With the Color Kid/Kryptonite business, we can't really guess what the Kid's power does without figuring out what the deal is with the rainbow varieties of kryptonite in the first place.  As I understand it, when Krypton blew up,…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Do Kryptonians feel bullets?
"Presumably, in the continuity where Krypton was a "Planet of Supermen", the bulk of the buildings and such would have been made out of some super-durable S/F material (Inertron-K, perhaps?) so that they wouldn't have to worry about…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Do Kryptonians feel bullets?
"Obviously, the super-powered strands of Krytonian hair actually slice thru any Earth blade that comes in contact with them, destroying the scissors.  Or not.  Still, that answer would totally have fit in an old Superman letter column."

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Can TV's Inhumans transcend the flaws of their origins?
"The closest comparison I can think of is Reggie from the Archie series (the only one of the central characters to never sustain a solo title for long)--he, like the Inhumans, is perfectly fine as a foil for other characters, but is just too…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Can TV's Inhumans transcend the flaws of their origins?
""inherently unappealing" is too strong a term--personally, I liked the Inhumans for what they were (as opposed to the misbegotten "Legion of Substitute Mutants" Marvel's been trying to make them), but what they were was…"

"I always thought that the name "Thad Ghostal" was an addition made to the Talk show incarnation of Space Ghost, and not the original, but it's not like HB was noted for more subtle character names.  Birdman's FEAR…"

Dave Elyea replied to Luke Blanchard's discussion Mythological Heroes
"Shouldn't Comet be grouped with the base mythological heroes, since Circe didn't just give him powers, but gave him the powers of the Olympian gods (exactly which god provided him with his "telepathic vision" power, I can't…"

Dave Elyea replied to Richard Willis's discussion 'Midnight, Texas' on NBC
"I've been enjoying the show so far, but for some reason, I find the medium less interesting than pretty much everything around him.  He's the main character, and the point of entry to the series, but somehow, despite liking his…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Batman
"I think DC did a better job of defining these relationships than the bulk of their competitors did.  Wasn't Rip Carter even identified as the legal guardian of the Boy Commandos?  That's more than Bucky ever got until the…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Batman
"Despite my previous comment about the 1950's Cap & Bucky possibly being different people, I think it's best not to wander too far into the swampy waters of ret-con, given the actual topic of this discussion--Bucky in particular has…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Batman

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Inhumans: What's important?
"I wonder what the Inhumans would have been like if they had been introduced as a stand alone concept instead of supporting players in the Fantastic Four.  A great many of their problems in terms of holding their own is that their original…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Batman

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
