I have decided to start reading DC Comics with Batman but after reading a few comics of Batman I will move onto Superman. What’s the best beginning/introduction reading order for Superman?
What's on your mind?
It may not be the comics' canon, but Damon Lindelof has confirmed that the original Watchmen comic alone IS CANON to his HBO series. Can we just simplify things and put the information from the comic not mentioned in the show on the pages of the characters?

As a new DC fan i want to know from other DC fans what is your favourite thing about DC. Is it reading or collecting DC Comics and their different editions? Is it watching the live action DC movies and TV shows or is it watching the animated movies and TV shows? Is it even the games that are your most favourite thing about DC? Or could it be the DC Crisis/Events or the battles, wars, fights or the character or just the story plot. There are so many things to like about DC but I want to know what is your personal favourite thing about DC.
Does anyone know or have a full list of Faith's powers? Is she even human? It appears that Vampire bites don't affect her and she seems to have an odd past. I always thought she was an alien, but she was raised in military traditions against her will in brazil. So if anyone has further info on her or her powers, I would appreciate it.
Also does anyone know where I can find a ton of Bruce Timm's artwork from JLU? I am looking for the different staff members who helped run the watchtower on the cartoon.
Welcome to round CXLVI (146) of 21 Questions. This is my eighth time as host. Please take note of the rules, as each host may have slightly different ones.
You will have 21 questions to try and figure out what DC character I have chosen. I will try to only answer these questions as Yes or No, but a Maybe might be necessary for certain scenarios.
Each player must wait either 2 hours, a question and an hour, or 2 questions before they can ask another question. I do not have to answer your previous question before you ask your next.
You may not ask a question with a picture (using a picture with characters in it and asking me if one of the characters is in that picture).
Guesses on the character's identity won't count as a question and you can make a guess at any time, but every player has only three guesses.
I will give a maximum of 3 hints total if anyone gives me a song recommendation and I like the song. If all questions have been asked and there are remaining hints, I will give 1 hint for free.
Parameters For The Character:
Characters from DC imprints, such as Impact, Helix, Vertigo, and Wildstorm are allowed.
The character has more than one appearance
The character I picked cannot be a repeat of a Previously Played Character (I double-checked this time)

By the time this gets to Z we will be in 2030.
In this discussion I want you to say what your favourite comic series is beginning with D and why it is your favourite. As usual, there is only one rule: There must be less than 100 issues.
Also, if there have been over 100 issues but DC published less than 100 in the series (like Tarzan or Blue Beetle), then that series is allowed.
Comic series from Vertigo and other imprints are allowed. I will also say what my favourite is beginning with D and why.
In Batman brave and the bold when Batman trains robin speedy and aqualad to work together robin kicks clock king in the face but then punches him as he was behind him
I’m not trying to be a nuisance and I don’t find this a joke. I have a question. What is the purpose of locking posts and why can’t we reply on old posts?
I have just got into the DC Universe and have started reading some Batman comics but I’ve heard of the Crisis/Events in the DC Universe and they sound so awesome and epic but I hear they have get a lot of controversy and hate but I also hear some people love them. So what’s the deal with Crisis/Events in the DC Universe? What do you think of them and (I haven’t read any but they sound and look awesome) what are the best/your favourite Crisis/Events in the DC Universe?
I live in Brazil where comics are expensive
So I need cheap online shop to buy comics
Ps: I hope that amplies to the rules if not please warn me
Does DC have a main Earth, if so, what?

During the Golden Age/sliver age of comics Batman was deputized by Commissioner Gordon, which gave Batman an advantage when he was taking down criminals in his Rogues gallery, because instead of being sent to a mental Asylum they were actually sent to prison.
during the Bronze Age post crisis on infinite Earths Batman was stripped of his deputation and made a vigilante who operated outside the law, this actually created a problem. Because when Batman arrest one of his rogues like the Joker instead of being sent to prison like he should be he sent to Arkham Asylum, and the only reason is because he was arrested by a vigilante and not an actual cop.
As an example look at the Batman animated series episode trial. District Attorney Janet Van Dorn was trying to put a stop to poison ivy for Good by getting her life in prison sentence, However when the judge gives his ruling because poison ivy was captured by vigilante known as the Batman and not an actual cop he decides to have her sent to Arkham Asylum.
Note: at this time poison ivy in DCAU wasn't a metahuman yet she was an eco-terrorist, so the DA pushing to put Ivy behind bars for life makes a lot of sense given the number of time she's tried to assassinate people for wronging Mother Nature.
another example would be in the Batman animated series episode Riddler's reform summer Gleeson is giving the news report on the penguin the quote of dialogue from the episode "Still no verdict in the trial of the Penguin though apprehended last month by Batman the jury remains unconvinced of the felon's guilt despite overwhelming" this is another instance where Batman being a full vigilante is more of a hindrance, since the jury is hesitant to even convect the villain, since we're having to look at the evidence that was collected by a vigilante not a deputized officer of the law.
now if Batman was re deputized it would eliminate a lot of the drawbacks that have resulted from Batman being a vigilante who operates outside the law. as an example more Batman's Rogues Gallery would actually be sent to Blackgate Penitentiary and not Arkham Asylum.
