    It's been much too dry and intellectual, and could do with an infusion of random drivel. I'll get to work.

    Comic books that rock

    My alternative to Enter Sandman. I've never liked the strobing in its video.

    Greatest supervillain of all time any universe

    Spider-Gwen Spider-Ben Please, no.

    Greatest supervillain of all time any universe

    To be literal about the OP's thread title; 'greatest ... all-time ... any universe...' Darkseid and Thanos tend to focus solely on one universe, whereas the most devastating threat faced by multiple universes is more likely that of Mobius, The Anti-Monitor.

    Greatest supervillain of all time any universe

    In a super-hero universe, everyone seems to recover quickly from Death, and so little more than a minor inconvenience. Unless you're Uncle Ben. Or, is he back now as well? Which reminds me about Death's greatest nemesis; Aunt May. She's proved simply unkillable.

    The Haul

    Actually a nice range across Bronze Age, Copper Age and 90s-to-recent Modern Age.

    It's not quite that clear-cut. There's a lot of talk here about Thanos' chin, but, I've always noticed Darkseid's very prominent brow ridges. That bone structure could itself do a great deal of damage. I haven't ever tried anything with mine, but I consider this a strong theory.

    I've read all of those in digital format. Some good stuff there.

    He does provide a valuable service for humanity as a whole, protecting us from the worst vermin around.

    The menace called Argh!yle! was once a simple sock worn by Brum-El of the planet Schwab. Argh!yle! and his wife Marnie were sent to Earth in the same spaceship as the Ambush Bug uniform. The ship was smooshed by a radioactive space-spider, its alien energy absorbed by the socks. Marnie died in the crash, but Argh!yle! and the uniform survived. When Irwin Schwab – the soon to be Ambush Bug – salvaged the suit, he didn't notice the newly-sentient sock. Crushed by rejection and maimed by a cat, Argh!yle! stumbled into an abandoned lab, where he used advanced machinery to mend himself. He made an iron mask to hide his disfigurement and gain great powers. Stealing socks from laundromats, he started bringing them to life, building an army. Finally, he created the Bureau, an orbiting headquarters from which he attacks his most hated foes, everybody, and in particular Ambush Bug. After several attempts of world conquest and clashes with the Bug, Argh!yle!'s plans were foiled when his headquarters was blown up. He is a scientific genius with the powers of The Legion of Super-Heroes' socks.

    If Stan Lee worked at DC

    Still one of the saddest comics I've ever read. The first story to have a powerful effect on me as a very young kid. You never forget.

    If Stan Lee worked at DC

    To be fair, both Jim Shooter and Cary Bates were talented as well as precocious.

    I haven't seen the film, but I bet the creature was released.
  13. Too reminiscent of the Wizard magazine hot lists for me, and the 90s speculation era ; all over again.
  14. Yup. There must be some boardies here who can't boast and brag about having any of those top hottest 100 books because they've only got an Action Comics 1.
