    Maybe adapting all those Frank Miller stories finally just broke Bruce Timm. Also it's hard to say that this is what Timm looks like unchecked because Alan Burnett, the third part of the DCAU with Timm and Dini, is also heavily involved in the Gods and Monsters stuff.

    Also these mini-episodes have been renewed for a second season next year already. There are also no other DC Direct-to-Video movies announced so far.

    He is still working for WB. It's not like he can just say that MoS was crap even if he did hate it.

    Yeah, but here's an interview with him on Kotaku today where he basically says he doesn't understand why Superheroes still have no-kill rules in 2015, when the audience for comics has gotten older. It seems like he feels that would be the legitimate progression of superhero stories, to revoke that rule.
    I mean the only superheroes that still have no kill rules are the ones for whom its an ingrained part of the character.

    This has me thinking. Which superheroes in the comics still have a pretty strong no-kill rule? Superman, Batman, Shazam, and Flash all spring to mind on the DC side. Daredevil and Spider-Man on the Marvel side. Green Lantern and Captain America used to have no-kill rules, but discarded them in recent years.

    I'm sure I'm forgetting many, but those are the ones that readily come to mind.

    I'm not sure Daredevil really counts. He doesn't have a "no kill rule" so much as a "wanting to avoid damning his soul". He really wants to kill some people, and his arc is more about him wanting to avoid becoming like them by giving in. However he will totally call on some of the biblical "cheats" if he's pushed far enough.

    I mean, how is that so different from Batman?

    I am certain beyond any doubt that he wants to kill people. But he chooses not to, and forces himself not to, due to a higher moral purpose.

    what i mostly want from bruce timm is for him to be able to draw more than one female body type

    like here's harley quinn, the joker's sexy sidekick, sure sure fine

    now could we get a female character whose silhouette is as distinct from harley's as the joker's is from batman

    i mean i get that it would make it more difficult for you to masturbate to her but don't you already have someone for that

    They actually said on DCAU DVD commentaries that Bruce Timm sucks at drawing different female body types. They wanted him to design a more brawny female villain for one of the newer Batman episodes and all his designs were bad.

    The problem is really obvious in the episode with Supergirl and Batgirl. You wouldn't even be able to tell them apart in their civilian clothing if it wasn't for their hair color.

    Daredevil tips over that line sometimes and not because he was being written by someone who didn't understand the character at the time.

    Daredevil set out to kill Fisk and was damned sure that he had done it, even though he actually failed.

    I found this post by John Seavey on MightyGodKing to be pretty funny.
    http://mightygodking.com/2015/06/08/my-hopes-for-the-post-secret-wars-marvel-universe/
    He makes a series of demands to Marvel, detailing his expectations for the post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe
    3) Bring back the Sentry. Then kill him off again, in an even more painful and ignominious fashion.

    4) Bring back the Spider-Marriage. Then bring back Gwen Stacy and have her marry Peter too. Then have Betty Brant, Liz Allan, Felicia Hardy and Deb Whitman all marry him as well due to a series of wacky misunderstandings, turning the series into an anime-style harem comic.

    10) Look, would it kill ya to bring back US-1? I got a feeling that Citizens Band radio is coming back in a big way, here. Maybe include Razorback as a supporting character for added sizzle.
    Unfortunately Brian Clevenger might be too busy to do a US-1 book.

    What's really funny to me about that line is how it sort of sounds like Conway got the idea from William Jennings Bryan's famous "cross of gold" speech, which is about how the gold standard sucks

    I kinda remember reading that the body types were kept nearly identical because it also made manufacturing the action figures easier, but I don't know if that was true. Also while it's a small touch, I think Hawkgirl was built a bit differently from the standard DCAU female figure.

    it's just like E3, people are realizing that they can do this shit themselves.

    Marvel will do their own press event in the Fall, not have to worry about being at Comic Con, and it will be a huge news cycle for them.
