The factual examples of foreigns playing Americans listed are unconvincing or inaccurate.

Bruce was "dead," but came back and established Batman Inc. Gryason had taken over as Batman druing Wayne absence and they both operated as Batman for a bit.
The new Robin is Damian, Bruce's son by way of Talia.

|The Batman Beyond Unlimited issue described doesn't sound so much like decompressed writing as just bad writing.|
But on the issue of decompression, it's pretty rampant. I most excited for National Comics because they're going to be single-issue stories.
|How do a lot of comics usually explain flight? (13) | Posted on June 30, 2012, 8:28 p.m.|
Is that the same in the nu52, or are they just saying "he flies, **** you for asking questions, he's Superman" now? It tends to go back and forth.
The latter. I'm actually quoting the Planetary/JLA crossover so it's not really even canon.

|what's to stop DC from publishing their own THOR comic book?|
I guess nothing apart from it being a jerk move. As long as their Thor is distinct enough from Marvel's it's legal. They've used version of Thor in comics.
Have they in the past?
Not that I recall.
Also is there anything keeping older characters out of public domain? Batman, Superman, Captain America, Namor, Human Torch etc were first published 60-70 years ago is this something we'd ever see happening?
Disney. They used their influence to change copyright law so that characters will essentially never enter public domain any more.
|how do you guys collect your comics? (8) | Posted on June 22, 2012, 7:08 a.m.|
|I usually buy trades to catch up with a series, though there are a few I read exclusively in trades. I prefer to do this with finite series since it makes it easier to give a complete set away to people.|

|When I was 39 years old, I heard a story. I found out that there are people walking among us who have superpowers. These people are called Supertasters. To a Supertaster, bitter fruits taste far more bitter, and sweets far more sweet. Then, just a few months ago, I had the chance to meet a real, live Supertaster named John Lee.|
And this is his true story:
Nothing tastes the same
To a Supertaster
When he tastes a pear
It's like a hundred pears
He's got superpowers
He is a Supertaster
Every flavor explodes
Explodes and explodes
John Lee Supertaster
Tastes more than we do
Everything has a flavor
Some flavors are too much
Can't shut his mouth
'Cause he's a Supertaster
Though he looks like a man
He is a Supertaster
Can't drink coffee or beer
'Cause he's a Supertaster
Loves ice cream and pie
He is a Supertaster
John Lee Supertaster
Tastes more than we know
Everything has a flavor
Some flavors must go
