"As I recall, when Vader told Luke, my initial thought was, "he's lying to distract him".
If Vader had lied, it may have made for some interesting tensiono between Han, Luke and Leia in ROTJ. What if the two of them had to fight one…"
"Super powered youth outlawed. The use of superpowers prohibited. Hmmmm, the Silver Age Legion dealt with that. The two-parter in Adventure Comics #359-360 saw Earth President Kandro Boltax spearhead an effort to have the Legion…"
"It sort of reminds me of Top Ten where gadgeteers were treated the same as robots as were super-powered beings of any stripe.
Of course, it's not like they really thought through Civil War though, is it? It seems as if they just had a story to…"
"Thinking about it, one woners how Nemesis Kid got accepted into the Legion in the first place. Sure his power is impressive--against a single foe. However, one would think a coordinated attack from two foes could take him down, espeicially if he…"

"This is something that always annoys me about stories involving some sort of super-hero regulation (e.g. Civil War). It's taken as a given all super-powered heroes (and sometimes non-super heroes) are covered; any competent attorney could have…"
"I think it was a kind of super-extrapolation. Real karate masters break boards, so "logically" super-karate could break steel.
I always liked KK precisely because using super-karate made him stand out from the other superstrong members.…"
"This assumes Nemesis Kid has even minimal fighting skills when he's not tapping his power. Or any brains. I'm not sure he does. In Karate Kid #1, for instance, and when he faced Projectra years later, he gets enough power to beat them but…"
Hello Mr. Jackson. You offer an interesting idea of "the four just men" as maybe-inspiration of the Joker's crimes in Batman #1. So, what do you think, where does that pirating-radio-to-send-threat-idea in 1940 comes from? Thank you very much
