If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authorit…
ICYMI: Superman Just Got In A Fistfight With Frankenstein
If you'd asked me back when it was coming out to put a bet on which character from Seven Soldiers would actually go on to become the most prominent of the DC Universe, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have put any money on Frankenstein. Just for the record, I would've backed the Manhat…
