    Hello, JCC!

    As you might know, I'm the JC's uncontested resident DC Comics expert. I used to answer all kinds of questions about DC and its multiple adaptations in the Facebook group but I thought, "hey, the people not cool enough to be invited to the group might have questions too!". So I decided to celebrate Mark Waid's birthday by moving my wisdom to the boards!

    Ask away! Don't be afraid! As The Flash likes to say, "fear is the mindkiller"!

    Could you please match up all my fave Marvel characters with their DC counterparts so I know who they're really suppose to be.

    What's the projected release date for the Batman/Dredd crossover movie? Or is that still going to be Gotham season 5?

    Why has Marvel not sued DC for stealing "Deadpool" (Wade Wilson) from "Deathstroke" (Slade Wilson)?

    I know that if you want to use the congressional subway connecting the House and Senate office buildings, you have to be escorted by a congressional staffer, but is there any way to do a paid private tour of this system after hours? I'd very much like to take my son and two of his friends to DC in the summer, but I was hoping to do some out of the way sightseeing connected to the workings of the federal government. Your expertise is very much appreciated!

    That's a very common question, Frieda. Squirrel Girl's equivalent, as in their inner goodness and curbstomping abilities, would probably a New Teen Titans character called Starfire. You'd like her... when she's not portrayed as a sex-starved kitten straight out of the Blurred Lines video, at least. For more humor heroes, see also Hitman, Ambush Bug, or Harley Quinn.
    That's a very common question, gezvader28. See, Jim Lee didn't redesign every single Justice League costume for nothing. It's New 52 or nothing. Well, except when things like Concordance or that Lois & Clark series or ugh my heart hurts now.
    That's a very common question, vin. Yes, but only as a cameo, you know, like old Flash in the Flash series, Dean Cain in the Supergirl series, or Superman's moral compass in Man of Steel. He is expected to portray a kind paraplegic blind father of three that Superman slowly strangles to death because well, he's sitting on the way to the Citadel of Blood (the DCEU version of the Fortress of Solitude).
    That's a very common question, Amy. Industry insiders suspect they are trying to see if it BLEEEEEEEDS or not. Alternatively: because of money.
    That's a very common question, Bryan. It's expected to be released between Justice League Part 5: Massacre and Superman in Auschwitz, so, around 2085.
    That's a very common question, AJ. Superman does have a penis. If fact, this penis is going to become the focus of the whole Snyderverse. He's described it as "girthy, sexy, not afraid of social boundaries, and totally pro-small government. Have some coke, bro? How much?". I can't wait.
    That's a very common question, Jewvid. It's probably the same reason Orion Pictures never sued DC for "Deathstroke the Terminator".
    That's a very common question, SSP. First: who the hell cares. Second: if you put together the DC Universe's innate tendence to spontaneously reboot itself every seventeen minutes, give or take one minute, and time travel... well, this is kind of what happens. Expect the plotline to be picked up around the 2040s, when one of the bitter fans who grew up reading these comics becomes a pro and writes a bland and terrible continuity spank that's going to be praised by its contemporaries but despised by history. Have a nice day, I guess.
    That's a very common question, Jaz. No.
    That'a a very common question, Ken. So, so, so common that in the Facebook sister to this thread it's been made around twelve times. Work on your material.

    Is Bruce Wayne Batman again in the comics yet? If so, how long will it last this time and who will be Batman when they decide Bruce shouldn't be Batman again?

    I for one hope someone comes up with an uncommon question for our DC guru.

    Who will play the Wonder Twins in the upcoming Justice League movie? Or do you think that BvS will bomb so badly that no Justice League movie will ever be released?

    "Wonder Twins".
    "Justice League".
    "New Teen Titans".
    "The Flash".

    I think I should stay away from this forum for about a week.

    Wonder Twins are the heart and soul of the DC universe. If you can't accept that, you probably really do need a break from the forum.

    Why didn't the guardians just have the rings connect directly to the main power battery? If the rings can do anything, why not just teleport to the main battery instead of carrying around a huge recharge station?

    Why do people with a weapon that can do anything use it to make a giant fist or fly swatter all the time?

    If the constructs are reliant on the user's will, does that mean they have to think about them all the time? Can a ring bearer accidentally manifest a construct by daydreaming or something like that?

    Why would a full time universe cop care about a secret identity? Why do all of the Earth Lanterns spend so much time on Earth instead of patrolling the rest of their sector? Why does their sector have way more Lanterns than the other sector? Why do they do anything ever except fight the other, evil lantern corps?

    That'a a very common question, EHT. So, so, so common that in the Facebook sister to this thread it's been made around twelve times. Thirteen with Ken's just two posts above yours. Work on your material.
    That's a very common question, cubman987. I think he's in the process, but I wouldn't know because I don't buy or rea-- I mean, because I'm slightly behind in Snyder's magnum opus.

    Anyway, "forever" in superhero comics means "three years, tops". So the cowl will move heads again probably before 2019, or earlier if sales take a dip.
    That's a very common question, Ken. The Todd Nauck version of the twins really, really fits the Snyderverse, doesn't it?

    [​IMG]

    Look at those jeans and those smirks! Tubular! I'm expecting that they'll be played by Jason Statham and Megan Fox, or be completely CGI, or something like that.

    And I doubt BvS is going to tank. I expect it to be pretty succesful, like Donald Trump. Just yesterday I was having a drink at the town's bar and I overheard a guy with an NRA cap telling his buddy in between sips of Bud Light, "Chip, the new Supah-man movie is the ****, man, he kills illegals and everything looks like that Sparta movie". So hey, there's a demographic!
    That's a very common sentiment, Watto. May I suggest reading Grant Morrison and Frank Quietly's All-Star Superman while you are gone?
