This was the first time in the show that Captain Cold has seemed more like his comic's self and less like a random sociopath from Crime-Procedural central casting, and I couldn't be happier. The little heart-to-heart with Barry in the woods finally felt like the sort of thing that could have happened in the comics.… » 3/25/15 11:18am Wednesday 11:18am

I think Spider-Man is a great example of comic writers and editors needing to let characters actually develop rather than trying to keep them forced into a pigeon-hole of nostalgia or otherwise retard their growth artificially simply because, "that's the way 'we' remember them." » 3/25/15 11:01am Wednesday 11:01am

This book was hands-down my favorite growing up (and still is among my favorites to this day). I must have read it 15-20 times between the ages ten and eighteen. It gave me a healthy appreciation for the absurd which I think really helped in dealing with all life had to throw at me in the years since then. » 3/24/15 8:45am Tuesday 8:45am

I'm just wondering when, similar to Zoom's revelation in Flashpoint, either Wells, Barry, or both, realize that they are sort of caught in a recursive loop (which is way worse for Wells, being the guy from the future) where Barry can't stop Wells in the past because then he never becomes Flash, and Wells can't kill… » 3/19/15 8:53am 3/19/15 8:53am

So, as far as those characters for the Arrow/Flash spinoff go, I'd have to assume they are going to give us Rip Hunter rather than Booster Gold just based on the character description. For Gold I'd have guessed the description would have incorporated "happy-go-lucky fame-seaker from the future..." someplace in there. » 3/09/15 7:14am 3/09/15 7:14am

Captain Cold is an interesting case. DC has gone the anti-hero route with him in the past (and is now, come to think of it, though they've also made it clear that he's also got a scam running), so it wouldn't be out of the question to have him at least occasionally on the side of the angels. » 2/27/15 4:31am 2/27/15 4:31am

Can't say that's something that ever occurred to me before, but it does make sense. That far from the sun the solar wind is going to be far weaker than it is in our neck of the solar woods. weaker magnetic storms weaker solar wind would, I would think, make it easier for Pluto to gravitationally hold onto gas and dust… » 2/27/15 4:15am 2/27/15 4:15am

Stories like this never fail to amaze me. For as much as we have come to understand about how our bodies and minds function there is still so much more we just don't understand about how everything fits together, how compensatory pathways can and can't be formed around damaged areas, and how what we actually sense is… » 2/25/15 11:25am 2/25/15 11:25am

I know it sets tings up better for future episodes, and provides a nice little setup for CA:TWS, but it bugged me a little that they would have been foolish enough to keep Fennhoff and Zola in the same cell. Never keep more than one evil genius/war criminal in the same cell. Don't keep more than one in the same prison… » 2/25/15 11:14am 2/25/15 11:14am
