"I’ll just jump into it and get in trouble for saying what I believe. I personally believe Vic is Vic and Cyborg is his disability. And Vic is a cyborg—it’s not that he is Cyborg, he is a cyborg. He’s different from a lot of other characters—it’s not like he was bitten by a radioactive crocodile and now he’s Alligator Man. He’s a kid who was injured in this horrific accident and in the process of saving his life he had all this mechanical stuff attached to him and this mechanical stuff helps keep him alive. So it’s not who he is, but it’s part of what he is. That’s a huge part of what I am addressing as we’re moving forward in the story." - David F. Walker

The A.V. Club: So you actually consciously set out to change things in the comics industry?

Frank Miller: Well, I set out to remark upon them. And seeing how all these heroes had been castrated since the 1950s, and just how pointless they seemed to be... In this perfect world of comic books, which was what it was back then, why would people dress up in tights to fight crime?

The A.V. Club: Because there wasn't anything bad enough going on back then to justify that extremism?

Frank Miller: It was just a bunch of goofy villains. It was 1985 when I started working on this, and I thought, "What kind of world would be scary enough for Batman?" And I looked out my window.

In the wake of the successful Supergirl TV show, I thought I'd look at Supergirl's Rogues' Gallery, such as it is. I looked at three diferent villains from the Jim Mooney era, and now I'm going to start with two who started in the Sekowsky era...and many of you who have read All-Star Superman will recognize the first one --Luthor's niece, Nasthalsia, better known as Nasty.


Interestingly, both characters from the Sekowsky era could be easily integrated into the TV show.


We first meet Nasty and her entourage as they arrive at Stanhope University (Supergirl's college) here...

"At the end of 'JLA/Avengers,' I felt like I scratched my Marvel itch. Whatever there was of my 15 or 16-year-old self that said, 'I desperately want to write Marvel comics,' he's satisfied." -- Kurt Busiek on moving away from corporate comics
