Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"The Weisinger era Superman was the one I grew up with too, because even though it was before my time these were all the ones my dad had saved (he wasn't a collector, they were just kept in an old suitcase; he also had stuff like Sgt. Rock and…"

"I meant to say "but I kind of like those comics."  I figure everyone could figure that out, but just to be safe.  :-)"

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"A lot of people seem to hate the Weisinger era with all the craziness, but I kind of those comics.  To me they're a lot more fun than the current Superman comics - I'm not much of a fan of anything from Byrne's revamp on, to be…"

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"Thanks, that made me laugh!  (In fact, I actually LOLed.)  :-) (Did he never have to give someone mouth-to-mouth?  He probably just flew them to a hospital.  "Thank God for the power of flight!")"

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"I think she was kept secret - not allowed to reveal herself as Supergirl - for a while, kept kind of in reserve and only acting secretly so that she could be "secret weapon" brought out if Superman wasn't around and Earth was…"

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"I'm not sure I see why being on Kandor would have been so bad.  Life appears to have gone on pretty much as it would have on Krypton.  Not being able to leave the bottle might have sucked, but you'd get used to it, and presumably…"

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"Superman didn't become her shadow, he wasn't always there, and she was older but she was still a teenager and bound to make stupid decisions, and even an adult (even Superman) could have a brief lapse in concentration - accidentally…"

"I think it can be fun to look at these crazy old stories this way."

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"Did they ever say anything about what Kryptonians considered marriageable age?  If the USA of today I think it's 16 with your parents' permission. "

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"It would putting lives needlessly at risk to allow her to stay in the real world - not only not a waste of resources, but allowing someone with her power and lack of control of that power to live on Earth, that would have been irresponsible. …"

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"Well, that settles it I guess!  Still, I guess Superman's never heard the phrase "When in Rome..."  And he must've been fine with the idea of there being no more Kryptonians, but as Richard pointed out human and…"

"The science doesn't support your opinion.  Try this for a start: http://discovermagazine.com/2003/aug/featkiss#.UiT59z_O65I But, as I said, we're talking about aliens - Kryptonian DNA might be different."

Jim King replied to Gene Phillips's discussion THE SUPERMAN FAMILY: HOW CLOSE IS TOO CLOSE?
"Cousins marrying used to be no big deal, and maybe it's not in Kryptonian society.  And who knows, the problem of genetic defects (minimal even among humans) might not be a problem at all for the more robust Kryptonian DNA."

Jim King replied to Doc Beechler (mod-MD)'s discussion DC drops the comics code
"That's a good point."

Jim King replied to John Dunbar (the mod of maple)'s discussion Marvel Essentials / Masterworks comparison
"I didn't know it was only the Omnibus editions that included the letters pages, which I did read and found interesting as it is cool to see how they were received.  One thing I wish they hadn't done was include Stan's intro to…"
