Barry Allen were always coming back.
FYI without Wikipedia I would have responded to that with "WHO THE FUCK IS BARRY ALLEN!?" Of course him being dead since 2 or 3 years before I was born and coming back when I was 20 might have something to do with it.

Spiderman's marriages were always doomed to disappear.
yes, yay for pissing on Spider-Man's character (Becuase nothing says heroic like selling your marriage to Satan just so when your 80 years old aunt eventually dies you don't have to feel guilty about it) just becuase some people want perpetual loser Spider-Man who pines after a chick that is DEAD and not coming back. Stuff like this is why fans should stay the hell a way from actually writing a character.

There's a reason the Earth 2 heroes were basically still wearing the same costumes since the 40s.
Becuase they were largely in a side universe that people didn't care as much about so they pretty much used it to get away with doing stuff the would have the fanboy's screaming bloody murder if it happened in their precious main universe?

And don't even get me started on the current Earth 2. Those costumes will be back to normal in a nanosecond.
Yes, becuase entirely new versions of characters want to dress like the old ones who are probably NEVER coming back.

"Lee's editorial advice to his writers in the early days of Marvel Comics seems more resonant than ever: superheroes should have only the "illusion of change," forever appearing to break new ground but always returning firmly to the status quo."
Which is why for the most part I'm giving less of a shit about the comics versions of the characters as time goes on.

Ugh. Pink Kryptonite. Kryptonian fragments have some odd mineralogy and give off some strange forms of radiation. Negating super powers? Sure. Random effect that lasts for 24 hours? Uhhh.... Okay. Makes someone turn into a very stereotypical gay person? WTF?!

In a Supergirl comic I believe, but yes. I think "Pink-K" was only used the one-time though to... prove some kind of point? I don't know. But, oy!

Somethings are best left gone by the New 52!

First established in superman 72 in 1953.
Are you talking about Kryptonite? I believe it started earlier than that as a plot-device in the radio serial and first appeared not long after that.

Pink-K was from a Supergirl story written by Peter David. Yeah, he was trying to make a point. Kind of failed though.

Yes, loads. But presumably you're angling for something specific so why not just say it?

Man, I'm so behind the times. I only knew of four kinds of kryptonite: green, gold, red, and blue.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kryptonite#Variations, there're bunches, including pink!

Well, I usually ask questions because people tend to agree with my point but aren't going to admit it unless they say it themselves. However, since you asked, my point is that the same motivating force that led to the Nolan movies being different from the Adam West television show also is motivating the desire to make the new Superman movie different as well. It's a recognition that what may work in comics doesn't work as well to modern movie viewing audiences.

He was doing a riff on the Silver Age style of story telling.

I think the point was that the old window treatment sucked, and that Jimmy needs more credit for his fabulous work around the office.

And that bow ties are cool.

OK, now the belt and boots on the costume on this cover is a big improvement on the initial new 52 costume:

Did they really change it? Or is that just an artist who is drawing it to look better?
