Though the article skipped the subversive stuff DC staff did in the 70's to get more compensation to kirby for his creations.

Didn't want to start a brand new thread for this but I think this is a very good example of oversimplifying (and mostly getting wrong) the DCU vs MCU debate.

A comic writer's take on the subject.

What say the rest of you?

one need only look at the body of millar's work to asses any opinion the man might have. Most of his career has been spent following and dumbing down the work of more talented writers.

Well. From now on I will never be able to take Venom seriously again.

Awwww c'mon,

That seems like a cop out. I've never read a lot of Venom stories but I thought Eddie Brock was a critical part of Spiderman. At least on some level...

Nah its not a cop out...the beginning of elevating Venom to anything more than an aberration Villain is where Marvel and I started to part company. Well that and the first resurrection of Jean Grey :P

ps-"Critical Part"? In the sense he was the accidental result of having to get rid of an OP piece of equipment? Then yes :twisted:

Fair enough. I only read to where he was around for the part of annoying Parker where he got undone by some guy that could rot anything...what was his name?

I missed alot of the other parts so when crab claw guy got into it (Carnage?) it I was over for me.

Hey I wanted to know what everyone though about the Aquaman trailer and the less impressive (to me anyway) Titans trailer.

Also...wtf are they doing with Henry Cavill and the DCU.

so you were expecting a tv show trailer to be more impressive than a movie trailer?

No but like Black Lighting had that coolness about it. But the CGI for Beastboy made me cringe. And I like Beastboy.
