Dial Q for the Question! (about Comics Thread)

edited June 2009 in Graphic Violence
Was Vic Sage the first Question, or was there an original...secret Question?


Does Superman wear underpants under the underpants on the outside of his coustume?


Just how long can Mister Fantastic's you-know-what really you-know-what?




If you have a question about comic characters, creators, books, art, or cannibalistic secrets then feel free to post it here and one of our resident smelly losers will be happy to dig the answer out of a teetering stack of moldering back issues!

    My question is why you started a separate questions thread :)

    For the record I like this OP more than Geebs'... and as we all know you guys are competing for our affection, so points for you!

    How do Mister Fantastic's powers work, anyway. If he's not actually exercising control, is he like a normal person? Like, if you got him while he's sleeping and shot him, would he be screwed? I actually seem to remember a thing from Civil War where Sue says it's really gross when Reed's focusing on something really hard and he starts to sag, so.

    Reed was probably not expecting to get blasted point blank at the start of Secret Invasion but he survived more or less so I think the sleeping scenario is out

    In SI, I assumed that was a specialized gun to fuck with his powers because he did pretty weird shapes. I don't think it was really a projectile.

    I've always pictured Reed... puddling if he wasn't concentrating/asleep. It's not a nice picture.

    There have been a few scenes where he's been really "tired" in bed after "activities" where there are arms and shit all over the place. At least, I hope it was an arm!

    I know Ultimate Reed has been established as no longer having any internal organs or anything like that, his entire body mass is all elasticized or whatever.

    I dont know if they've ever gone to the trouble of explaining that sort of thing with 616 Reed

    So i just read The Return of Superman, mostly because i got that, Death of, and World Without A, all pretty cheaply. Like $15 for all three cheap. Otherwise i don't think i'm a fan of that era in DC comics.

    But i do have a few questions regarding it:

    What's up with Lex Luthor II and his weird shapeshifting Supergirl? Are there trades that deal with their origins or would it be easier/less boring to just get like a short synopsis here?

    Bibbo seems to pretty much be the best character related to Superman. Are there any good stories out there i could read that feature him heavily?

    Jon Bogdanove is a terrible artist, even by 90's standards, and every time i got to one of his issues in the book i wanted to quit reading so bad. I don't think i've ever seen any character look as awful as his red-headed Lex renditions. Is that guy still working? And if so, why? Am i missing something as to how he got put on such an important (at the time) arc?

    And finally: Does the DC Universe ever feel like as coherent a Universe as the Marvel one? It just seems like when you have a big Marvel event, there's random characters popping up all over the place. But (spoiler'd, i guess?)
    Cyborg Superman sends like 5 Justice League members on a fake space mission, and consequently NOBODY is around to try to stop him and Mongul from completely eradicating Coast City? Seriously? This also falls in line with a question i asked a while back about how only five or six heroes really did anything at all to try to stop Doomsday. But then Superman's funeral has like a million superheroes there. Why does the DC Universe feel so barren of heroes when the shit is actually hitting the fan, but so populated when someone gets killed or married?

    DC also actually spreads their heroes around the globe, as opposed to Marvel, where every single person who wears a costume lives in Manhattan. The 50 states initiative has changed this, but that's very recent.

    I dunno, DC seems to have enough near-godlike characters to render point of residence somewhat irrelevant. As opposed to Manhattan's cadre of transparent women and freerunning lawyers. I mean, the Avengers are pretty powerful, but they don't have like a headquarters in space or anything. Unless they do now.

    Even Batman with his no powers is often written as a man who is nigh-omniscient and who could probably beat down Mongul or Lobo in a straight-up fistfight if they messed with his car or threatened Alfred or something.

    Anyway, i know it's a Superman book and so it's Superman's problem, i was just wondering if the DC Universe always felt so oddly vacant outside of the various Crises on Infinite Whatevers.

    Lex contracted cancer from prolonged exposure to kryptonite, cloned a body for himself, and stuck his brain in it, masquerading as his own son. The protoplasmic Supergirl is a long, terrible story. Here's the wiki.

    The only good Bibbo story I can recall was one that was most likely included in the trades you purchased. It has Bibbo musing on why a shmuck like him gets to keep living, while a guy like Superman had to die.

    Bogdanove is still working. Though not with the frequency he once did.

    The DCU tends to be a little scattershot at times if taken as a whole, but for the most part things line up as they should. There are notable exceptions; right now Final Crisis is in full swing, and feels detached from the rest of the line, which won't feel the impacts of the event until a few months after it's over. The current line of Batman books is kind of a mess, with nothing between the two flagship titles Detective Comics and Batman syncing up. Hopefully it'll be better after Final Crisis, but I'm not holding my breath.
