Clearly their masters at Disney are looking at the nightmares created by the Schuster and Kane claims for Superman and Batman. What really stinks isthat anyone else is basically free to rock up to a con and make money selling commissions of characters like Ghostrider and nothing happens to them.

Would be much cooler with the TOS crew. Still, very cool. :)

Actually, I could see the 11th Doctor perhaps working best with Voyager's crew

Agreed.
Work done by an officer's doppleganger in a parallel universe cannot be claimed as overtime.

Wonder Woman #7: it may just be one of the worst, utterly illconceived and misogynistic single issues that DC have ever put to press.  >:( :'(

Marston must be spinning in his grave

It's a safe bet I'll never read it. Care to offer a synopsis and list of offenses?

http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2012/03/26/she-has-no-head-is-the-destruction-of-the-amazons-the-destruction-of-feminism-in-dc-comics/

The reboot somewhat controversially turned Wonder Woman's sole title into a horror book. Starting with a strong first issue, it soon got busy drastically rewriting her status quo in ways that DC would never dream of visiting on Batman and Superman. The culmination of this has been to turn the Amazons -- who have for now have constantly suffered indignity after indigity at the hands of DC -- from a female-empowering society of immortal artists and warrior philosophers into a society of murderously emasculating modern-primative sirens embodying pretty much every single negative aspect the woman-hating ancient Greek propaganda machine ever threw at the concept.

Any positive aspect they once possessed seems to have now been invested in the society created amongst the baby boys they trade to the god Happhestus to become his (effectively enslaved) forge workers in return for the weapons and implements the women themselves now seem unable to produce on their own.

When it stops being entertaining, it stops being entertainment.

It's probably because they're aren't any forges in kitchens.  /sarcasm

they did an umbrella academy motion comic, i don't remember this being in the first series, and i have not read Dallas yet so i am not sure what they are basing it off of.
