"Let's see 9if any of these are legit for this topic....
Batman and the Outsiders "invaded" the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles in 1984.
Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk were at the Winter Olympics in 1980 (Spider-Man vs Hulk at the…"
"Good guidelines Jeff. I've a couple others for discussion...
"No duplicates" isn't as tough these days, but in the era of 80 page giants and 100 page Super Spectaculars, it was a bit of a challenge. And then came the DC Showcase…"
"ITEM: I rather thought that Superman was a Kryptonite detector himself. I mean, lead was the ONLY thing that could protect him from Kryptonite; if the stuff wasn't in a lead box, you'd figure he could feel it from a dozen feet away, before…"
"Impressive, my friend! I dunno if I could have come up with such a list.
More fun, I wonder if I pored over your list if I could find more villains... maybe some obscure ones. But this is a damned fine listing!"
"I just watched it.
At the end, Sam says "he saved my life." In my version he says "he saved my life. And he fixed my watch!"
I think it was interesting that the kid's name was Sam. As in Samaritan's son? He seemed…"
"So, I watched this movie this morning, and I really liked it. I figured out the twist very early, but that didn't detract from the story at all for me. Sometimes I forget that Stallone can act, and he proves it here. Highly recommended."
"There are several movies by that name. This is the one discussed:
Samaritan (2022) - IMDb
It's free on Amazon Prime to Prime members.
(Thanks for highlighting this, Fogey. I've added it to my "to watch" list."
"You have to include Adventure Comics/Superboy and the Legion of Super Heroes. Superboy time traveled in nearly every issue of those books to get to the Legion's time or to get back home (or both.)
Supreme, as a rip off tribute to Superman had…"
"Oh, that. Yeah, you're right. But then, a super powered metabolism would digest said Earth food so fast and completely that it probably never made it to the colon and then out. Gods I'm feeling silly! :) :) :)
Randy, there were some…"
"There weren't enough Kryptonians under a yellow sun to know if they needed to eat - but both Kal-El and Kara were shown eating often. Whether that was to maintain their secret identities, one doesn't know.
Do they metabolize food the same…"
Being a fan of super hero movies, and especially good ones, when I heard of "Samaritan", I thought I ought to give it a viewing, and I did.SPOILER: This is NOT about Astro City's Samaritan. Save for the name, it's an all new story and concept - and to me, it plays well.Basically, 25 years ago, Samaritan and his arch nemesis Nemesis, twin brothers, were battling for their own cause. Both supposedly died - but our protagonist Sam, 13 years old and living in a slum, is a Samaritan fanatic and…See More
All I can say is "Aw, damn!" For weeks now, I've been meaning to state in a comment to one of my Deck Log articles how much I appreciate your unflagging support and your incisive commentary on my column. I kept putting it off because I never found the right place, or was too busy to add a comment, or any of the hundred of things we put off doing stuff we should.
Of all the members of this board, you were my most loyal reader, and compliment or criticism or just plain commentary, I always looked forward to seeing you post a comment. You're one of the Silver-Age experts who kept me on my toes.
So I shall miss your presence here, probably more than most. But it's your decision, friend. I don't stand in your shoes. Each of us has to determine what is right for himself and then act accordingly. I'd prefer you stay, but if you feel you have to go, then go with my blessing. And my regrets.
