skjam: Skyler Sands as a UNIT soldier (Unit)
[personal profile] skjam
One of the most frequently reused plots of the Silver Age Superfamily titles was "supporting cast character temporarily gains superpowers, causing problems for the hero." Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane were the most common targets of this, but everyone got into the act, including some long-forgotten characters like the one we'll look at today.



This post contains what adds up to 7 2/3rds pages of 23 from the lead story in Superboy #157, "Get Lost, Superboy...Who Needs You?!" plus a special treat.

Continuing DC's long love affair with gorillas )

Your thoughts and comments?

SKJAM!

Where does one START?

It's true to the series, and all the voices and feelings are there. Since Sozin's Comet, the characters have had some growth. Some forward, others....well, like Aang says, it gets complicated.

But of course you cannot have ATLA without moments of awesomeness.

Theme weeks

We love 'em, but we've neglected them recently. And that's a crying shame!

On the last requests post we had a decent thread going re: suggestions of which themes people would like to see being featured and even prior to that the mod comm's been talking about bringing these back. See any you like?

One Perfect Moment week
Angst week
Retcon week
Ape week
Robot week
Body-swap week
Time travel week
Dude in distress week
This is Why week
where posters explain exactly what it is about a certain character, title, artist that they like, dislike etc.
My First... theme would be a good way for posters to reminisce about their first comics reading experience. or the first issue of their favourite title, and could bring some new faces and books into the mix
Porn Week (a perennial, to the point that I'd suggest we concentrate on previously un-featured creators)

We've had some of these before (as well as others not listed; check through the tags), but some are brand new. Is there anything else you'd like to see as a week-long all-comers postfest?

Lurkers? Speak up! New members? Post!

Think about what you love, or what you've been meaning to share. Would that fit with any of these themes? Does it suggest a new theme to you?

In comments: VOTE. TALK. SUGGEST.

Let's hear it, Dailians.
