Identity Crisis and Long Halloween are awesome. Final Crisis sucked.

You obviously didn't get Final Crisis but it's understanable a lot people didn't get it. It's not a typical superhero storym it's more than just punch and kick fiasco you get in typical superhero stuff.

RunDTC - 8/8/2012, 1:11 PM
there was nothing to "get" except that it sucked.
ArtisticErotic - 8/8/2012, 1:22 PM
Explain your reasonings why It sucked. I'm very curious about this.
ArtisticErotic - 8/8/2012, 1:23 PM
Oh and don't just say something sucks just to jump on the banwaggon.

I actually want to see why something sucks according to you that is.

A live action HBO Justice League would be stupid to me but whatever.
GoILL - 8/8/2012, 1:27 PM
An animated Hush would be awesome.

Definately Kingdom Come. Far too epic and large by scope for a live-action film to adequately portray.
RunDTC - 8/8/2012, 1:34 PM
I thought it had way too much going on once, Wonder Woman was simply a drone, I didn't get why we needed to see all the alter-dimension Supermen, Batman shooting Darkseid whilst getting hit with the Omega Beam, which didn't even kill him yet left a corpse, seemed like a pathetic way to boost sales with the "death" of Batman.

that lighting kid or wahtever (it's been awhile since I've read it) seemed unneeded and I had a hard time following the constantly shifting narrative.

The Man Who Laughs and Superman: Red Son could be interesting

Blackest Night should be up there at the top.

Love Long Halloween and Hush and one of those should be the next Batman animated film in my opinion.

Kingdom Come would be epic!
Bumble - 8/8/2012, 1:47 PM
Emerald Crisis as well?

Put some more Lantern stories out there. PLEASE!

Identity Crisis
Long Halloween
Blackest Night

How about some Flash stories?
Although, I believe they need to an original Flash origin tale. We've yet to see an animated film feature on the speedster.

@RunDTC I hated Final Crises the first time I read it, maybe even the second time, then the third time I could appreciate it a little more. It's not a masterpiece, but it grew on me.

Also, the corpse of Batman was actually a perfect clone. It's explained in great detail throughout the Batman and Robin and Return of Bruce Wayne story arc.

Of these options...

Blackest Night would be the easiest to pull off and still kick ass without risking or losing too much.

But Kingdom Come is the ultimate choice. I've wanted to see that in some form for so long. Only if the animation is top-notch though. Not the latest stuff we've been seeing
RunDTC - 8/8/2012, 3:22 PM
a perfect clone? wth?
ArtisticErotic - 8/8/2012, 3:58 PM
Like I said you obviously didn't get Final Crisis, it's basicaly a love letter to Jack Kirby and his era of comics and creativity, but with a much darker tone and metaphorical overtones.

Grant Morrison likes to pull stuff from all era's and comics and bring it full circle.

You need to read Grants entire Batman run, Batman and Son, Black Glove and R.I.P, Return of Bruce Wayne and his Batman and Robin run. The whole thing with Batman is explained in his run.

Batman was not hit with an Omega Beam, he was hit with the Omega Sanction big difference. Omega Sanction forces the victim to live a series of successive lives which are progressively worse than the last. The Omega Beams simply reduces anything it touches to ash or nothingnesss.

I've read a majority of Morrison's run. actually, all the ones you mentioned....it's shit.
ArtisticErotic - 8/8/2012, 6:27 PM

Again explain your reasoning why it's so called "shit" cause that word gets thrown around a lot lately.

Batman and Son: the Man-Bat ninjas were pointless and I felt the finale was rather lackluster.

Black Glove: The Bat family is already big enough. now we have copycat Batmans from other countries with copycat Robins? story also made no sense.

R.I.P.: om my gosh, I hate R.I.P.. half the story seems to be a dream/hallucination, him claiming to be the Batman of...whatever it was seemed strange and out of place (along with Bat-Mite). I didn't understand Hurt's motivation and did they ever say who he really is? is he really Thomas Wayne? a immortal great-great-great-grandfather? the devil? oh well, now they don't have to resolve since the frickin rebooted the universe.

Return of Bruce Wayne: boring, drawn-out, and seemingly pointless at times.

Batman and Robin: this actually had some good moments but a majority was shit. I didn't understand why Jason Todd needed a sidekick and the whole story with Professor Pyg was just [frick]ed up.

3 is happening and 8 was suppose to happen.

My 5 are

1. Sinestro Corps War
2. Sinestro Corps War
3. Sinestro Corps War
4. Sinestro Corps War
5. Sinestro Corps War

If I had to pick a 6th it'd probably be Sinestro Corps War.
ArtisticErotic - 8/8/2012, 7:46 PM
RunDTC - I'll respect your opinions, even though I think a good majority of your points and reasoning are [frick]ing dumb, but at least you gave reasons.
