    I hate to refer to this, but I can view it from the first appearance of "Flash" in Smallville.

    At the end of the episode, Bart and Clark are racing, Bart turns, gives Clark a wink and salute, and books it. Way beyond Clark's top speed. It was a good illustration. (but damn do I hate Smallville.)

    That's the only Smallville episode I've ever liked.

    You never saw the first few episodes out of simple curiosity?

    Didn't have Robin in them, obviously.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    he played the son of a real estate mogul who fled the country from tax evasion charges

    later on (season 2 spoilers)
    it was revealed that he caused a bus crash that almost killed veronica mars and planted a bomb on a plane that veronica's father was supposed to be on

    among other things

    I was going to say that, but than decided to not to on account that I didn't want to spoil the entire season for everyone.

    God, Bale, why do you hate the people?

    I try to hate everyone equally, that way nobody gets to claim they're my favorite.

    As if anyone would ever think that claim would mean something, but you gotta plan for every eventuality.

    Now that the entire series is done, has anyone gone back and read all of Countdown from start to finish? If so, does the reduction of time between each issue help with the flow and pacing (and coherancy) of the story?

    On the off chance that it doesn't suck if you read it in one big batch, as opposed to over the course of an entire year.

    Did anyone actually buy (and keep) all 52 issues of Countdown? I started just getting the recap via Wizard or the Newsarama interviews.

    the odds on that are astronomically low

    I bought all of Countdown and actually managed to sell it on ebay for almost $75. So I don't feel TOO bad for buying all of it now.

    a 50% return on something like countdown isn't actually a bad deal

    Eh closer to $120 with 20 percent folder discount. I was just shocked I got such a large quick turnaround on the auction. I got another $30 for the Search for Ray Palmer one-shots and Countdown: Arena. So that was $105 I got to put towards my vacation from work next week. I consider it a win.

    I keep the first 25 issues (thats how long it took me to drop it) of Countdown beside my crapper, and I've been reading through them all again from the start. I'm really dissapointed at how much of a good thing it could have been. Just reading the first few issues, I can think of such great stories that should have sprung out of it.

    Reading it strait through makes it better, but it is still not very good.
