The Multiverse and Other Wackass Silver Age Concepts Back In Mainstream DC Universe
Yea bro. The Man of Steel reboot is the only continuity I acknowledge. 🤬 Birthright and Secret origin with their silver age pandering.
I didn't want to jack the "Knowledge Thread," and felt as if this was a good enough of a topic to have it's thread. Back in the 80's when DC consolidated into one defined universe, it was a step into the right direction The massive company retcon was needed to clear up some 🤬 and basically get rid of some out and out back ideas. One of those being, the 🤬 Multiverse.
Silver Age Verison of characters, Good Idea. Parellel Earths VERY BAD 🤬 IDEA. From it's inception the Multiverse was never a good 🤬 idea. So to bring it back would only expound on bad idea concepts. The JSA living on Earth-1, get the 🤬 out of here.
Knives, I hear you that Silver Age pandering 🤬 . Certain things about the silver were wack and let's face it, some of those ideas were geared towards the comic book buying demographic of that time, young boys between the ages of 7-13. This is why Kryto doesn't work for me. I'm in my thirties, I know for the mere fact that I buy comic books, I have to suspend belief, but I draw the line at a dog with super powers. Young boys find dogs with superpowers cool, not men in their 30's.
There was a reason in the retcon Byrne didn't include some things. For example multiple survivors of Krypton, (who says that all immensely powerful beings, had to be from Kryton, why can't they be from somewhere else.) My do we need the color spectrum of krytonite? Do we really need for Clark to have been Superboy? How is Lex and Clark growing up together, a better plot device, than Lex being older than Clark, and feeling threatened and offended by Supes statis as the number man in Metropolis? I under that Geoff Johns looked up to Richard Donner and interned and worked for him. I understand that Superman and Superman II was Johns favorite movies, but did we really need movie elements inserted into the comic?
I think Christopher Reeves was the best Superman, but I don't need for Superman to look like Christopher Reeves. I don't the fact the S shield, just so happened to be the symbol for the House of El. I don't the those 🤬 crystals that can do everything 🤬 thing, and I damn sure don't like the at Ice Palace, er excuse me The Fortress of Solitude.
For one thing it's some absolutely ridiculous 🤬 . I mean it's Supes "secret," not so secret base. It just screams, "Hey Lex, Brainiac, Zod, Doomsday, Parasite, Metallo. Here I am. Come attack me. Plus the muthafucka looks cold, inhospitable, and uninviting. The Batcave has more charm and warmth.
I was sad to see Byrne's verison of Superman go. It was like Johns & Co, were saying to "🤬 you," to dude. I mean what was the purpose of have The Crisis," if all they were going to do was bring it back. The thing is will we have to go through in another 25 years if DC decides to have one universe. I sincerely hope not.
