Hey, all, the Scans Daily online archive is back up, and there's no need for a password any more. Also, I've been meaning to mention this, I managed to snag a chunk of the scans from the old SD, not all, but a chunk of the 20,000+ posts. It's about 30GB, and I had to nurse the script along to make it work, so I'm not sure how to share it...but I am open to ideas.

And to make this legal, here's my favorite page from Superman/Batman #49:

Is he stilla round, when they reintroduce the original Toyman, it was shown that Hiro was one of the robot doubles that manages to fool Superman.

If anyone ever wants to use Hiro again, they can just say that Toyman made a robot of him.

I hope that happens. The Teen Titans could use a super-genius....

Well, once they stop killing a Titan every other week, anyway.

A Loeb idea people love? What gives? :p Ok I heart Hiro as well and refuse to believe he's a bot.

"A Loeb idea people love? What gives?"

Too many people try to say one person is all bad or good, there's levels dammit! Even Liefeld can't be completely put down, fella made Deadpool,Cable and Domino afterall! (Though lotsa people seem to hate Cable but meh)

Bad choice. Liefeld designed the look for those characters. No one is really in love with the look. It's the characterization other people gave them that is loved.

As regards Loeb, he's lost a lot of skill, especially after his son died, but his eulogies for Captain America were still pretty good.

However, speaking for myself, I never cottoned to Hiro. He's just several walking cliches mixed together into something that almost, but not quite, becomes an original creation.

I never liked him.

Sorry, but "the world's going to end, there's a meteor coming, we must turn to humanity's only hope... some Japanese kid never mentioned until now, that takes helps take Batgod to whole new levels!" doesn't work for me

That's not entirely true. Hiro debuted in Superman #177 during Loeb's run and his expertise with machines (and his obssession with getting his grandpa's Metallo back) was evident even then.

Powergirl, the official currency of the Bat gift system.

I'd like to see him in the new PG book.

Hiro: Hey Powergirl need any...WHY HELLO POWERGIRL'S EQUALLY BUSTY BRUNETTE FRIEND.

You just KNOW Hiro would love to lend his expertise to Starrware. For free. Or maybe if Karen were to flash him every now and then.

Hmmm... Hiro/Atlee. That just might work. It'd be cute as a barrel of puppies, that's for sure. And weren't they both in the 2nd incarnation of The Titans of Tomorrow? The one with the blonde Charlie taking up the mantle of Huntress?

Indeed he was. He even had his own personal mecha. God that was awesome.

Charlie Huntress cracked me up, especially hen thy referenced it near the end of the BoP with Charlie going "I totally want to be like you Huntress, but maybe with fishnets too and I'll do something with my hair"

Or Beetle mentioning her when Misfit came into the Tower
Beetle: "Didn't I fight a blond you?"
Misfit: "Was I awesome?"

But yes I now want Hiro to show up in the Powergirl title. It'd be glorious.

Every time I see the backup I'm happy, then sad when I remember the comments aren't there anymore. D:

It's like finding an favorite old book and discovering all the words have been rubbed out. :(

I wish we could get all those great comments, talks and arguements back.

I miss some of my snarky comments, especially the one with the bad comics. Remember how everyone chewed out Thundercats The Return and Dogs of War?

I actually liked that S/B arc, mostly because it's where they introduced the Lil' Leaguers.

And Hiro! I liked his role in S/B. Even if he is the panting fanboy. What happened to him outside the series, anyway?

On the other hand, I think he was also part of Luthor's future Titans.

I know I've said it before (and recently), but I kind of wish that they'd take up Hiro right up where the last story implicitly left him*: as a robot. If that's not a situation ripe for some form of the "rebellious AI" theme, I don't know what is.

I might be the only one who thinks that having one Toyman who's also a toy in a sense would be kind of fitting, in a way.

*I guess you can call bme Annie Wilkes!

Although I'm a Bat/Cat shipper, I think Peej/Bats would be really interesting.

I for one, would love to see Peej/Dick!Bats. Now that's a ship that's got something for everyone!

That would truly be a "World's Finest" team-up. The World's Finest Rack meets the World's Finest Derriere.

"I owe you one."

What does he owe her for? Arranging his dinner dates?

(Also, a dinner sitting between PG and Batman has to be the sexiest thing ever! *envies*)

I don't think Batman's going to that dinner. That's why he owes her.

Huh, wouldn't she owe him then? He's the one going hungry, after all.

Less about food, more about adult woman stuck taking a teenage fanboy out to dinner.

I'm pretty sure I had a brain, and then I imagined Babs' smirk as she let the cameras run. Hum.

Yeah, he's a real person, the first Toyman made a robot copy of the kid and that's how that all happened.

END. OF. STORY.

Yay for Power Girl's boobs!

Bruce: And here's a full scholarship to your choice - Oxford, Cambridge, MIT, you name it.
Hiro: Yeah... Um, thanks, I'll pass.
Bruce: Here's the deed to a 400-acre island in the Bahamas.
Hiro: No, really, I'm good.
Bruce: How about all the Krugerrands you can carry?
Hiro: Look, I'll just be going now.
Bruce: Wait, wait. I'll think of something...

Yeah, Toyman just happens to build an exact human android, that Sperman couldn't tell with his X-Ray vision, let alone the smell the oil and metal or the sound of the hydraulic and ears fo the bot with his super senses, and he even does the same thing with Branianc. He never really fought him, just his probes...

Thanks very much for the restore. Through it i was able to find a wonderful poison ivy story -- Cast Shadows. I loved it so so much that I've already hunted down a copy through Amazon.

Wish someone would post it again here...

What is the title of that black and white comic about that is a parody story of Medievl England, with a fat dragon in a backwater kingdom to eat royalty and at the end the prince travels with him after the dragon ate his parents?
