What are your thoughts on Earth-1?
A Rogues book would be interesting. If nothing else, at least a miniseries.
JSA. The most we've gotten in over a decade is Earth 2. I love Earth 2, but I want my classic JSA back dangit!
If I can't choose a group, then probably Steel.

@Lagvaldemag Earth 2 is actually an interesting book if you like alternate reality stories. It gets weird at times, and it's definitely no substitute for the regular JSA, but if you go into it without many expectations, it can be a fun read. Just expect a lot of changes to the characters from how they were in the golden age.
@Elaexy I don't remember Earth 2: Society all that well, (DCYou in general is a bit of a blur for me) so he might have been a President during that book. But I don't remember him taking any government role in the main Earth 2 book.
Should be Steel. But it will probably be Val-Zod.
Hmm... Superbaby McWhinypants or the Batman Who Tries too Hard. I'm going to go with the smarter one.
The way I was able to get through it was with a few assumptions.
A.) This is basically an Elseworlds story.
B.) There seems to be something fundamentally wrong with this Wonder Woman, and she may have goaded Superman into a lot of stuff.
C.) This could have been a lighter universe before the story started, and they may not have faced something like this before.
Conversely, here are some negatives.
A.) It is definitely just there to get the ball rolling for the game.
B.) Some of the costumes just don't work in a comic.
C.) And of course, Superman shouldn't have reacted that way.
I try to look at a story from every possible perspective, which is why I haven't participated in any Injustice or Snyder debates. It's a divisive issue, and I have my problems with Injustice, but I'm not going to pretend Geeen Arrow's death didn't get to me. To paraphrase something I once heard someone say about movies: Every book is somebody's favorite, and I want to understand why.
I don't think it should be ridiculous, and I agree with Marv Wolfman's statement that at the time of Crisis being written, it felt like half of Krypton had survived the explosion. But if they didn't have more characters, we wouldn't have Supergirl, Zod, Krypto, or other well-respected parts of the Superman mythos. So there should be a rule of not abusing the new kryptonian trope for storytelling, but we also shoudn't purge the characters that worked.
I'm glad Troy Baker gets another appearance as the Joker.
A.) That fight was barely a part of it.
B.) There were many more interesting parts of the story. (The art, the story, etc.)
C.) If any superficial thing deserves attention, it's New Oa.
The original was, among other things, a cautionary tale. Then everyone took it to mean, "people like it when heroes fight" and we got Injustice. And Civil War on the Marvel side. I feel like the idea has potential, but whoever is in charge of adapting it needs to be able to turn away from the bright lure of a superhero blockbuster.
I don't remember which issue it was, but there was an interesting explanation for why Superman's secret identity works. Because no one thinks that he would want a normal life. They just think that he's Superman full-time because their logic is, "If I had his powers, I wouldn't work some desk job." It's definitely not true for every human being on the planet, and I'm not saying that's the only reason he has a secret ID, but it's probably one of the reasons just putting on a pair of glasses and hunching a little is such an effective disguise.
I think it's a decent Harley Quinn movie, but when I heard that a Birds of Prey movie was happening, I expected more of a spy thriller.
What is the funniest classic comic book cover you've seen?
Wow. Just... wow. Someone remembered this character exists.
Oh, really? I didn't know that.
Connor Hawke is a nice touch. I've been wondering if/when they would integrate him back into canon.
I mean, if you put a daxamite and a human in a nuclear plant, the human will live longer.
