When I was a kid, DC was the place to go if you wanted whimsy as part of your comics. Super-Monkeys, Bat-Mites, wacky alien sidekicks, and crazy Red Kryptonite transformations were just some of the fun kinds of concepts I rarely saw in Marvels more "serious" output. How times have changed in this era of cinematic superheroes. DC's offerings are dead serious, while Marvel has made a talking raccoon one of its biggest stars. I'm not holding my breath for a Beppo appearance on the big screen.
