Titans Exposes Everything Wrong with DC’s Gritty, Boring Approach to Live Action

TBF to #4, the abuse directed at Diop is gross and unfair and reflects an ugly side of fandom that we need to work on, AND I didn’t actually state my opinion, so for clarity: Lead Raven, yay! Diop as Starfire, cool.  Dove, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, no Cyborg, boo!

hope that helps

Superman vs. the Myth of Aristocracy
@thehost55, Sure, Pharaoh is the ruler and the Jews are the slaves, but the Egyptians are also gentiles while the children of Israel are God's Chosen People, who Moses re-joins and then kicks Pharaoh's ass. Again, the point is that Moses's true heritage is his special biological one, even though he was unware of it until he became a man.

The DC Comics Revamp: A Reaction
Note, this post is ALREADY out of date, as DC just announced 9 more titles. And if Cliff Chiang is drawing it, I have to buy Wonder Woman again. Especially if it's this Wonder Woman.

The third Bond film is "Goldfinger," which is the only example I can think of where the third film seriously improves on the previous two.
Rorschach Test
Nick, Rorschach is in fact paranoid: he "distrusts others, sometimes to delusional proportions, and believes that certain individuals, or people in general, are "out to get him."" Also he's wrong, for most of the book, in a particularly paranoid fashion. He believes the Comedian was killed by a "mask killer," someone targeting superheroes, assuming one crime means a threat against himself. Rorschach sticks to this theory through issue 10, despite being given a huge clue in issue 2, that the Comedian saw something on an island that shook him to the core. Rorschach never follows up on that. Ozymandias even exploits Rorschach's paranoid theory by staging his own assassination attempt, giving himself an alibi. Yes, Rorschach apologizes to Nite Owl, but that's a huge moment for him, stepping away from his paranoid life and trying to be human. But before that, Rorschach knew Nite Owl for twenty years and never told him his real name, or showed him his real face; all while breaking into his home and eating his sugar. That's not trust.
The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest 2008 Results
You make excellent points, and no, Bulwer-Lytton was certainly no worse a writer than Cooper. In fact, I'd say the contest is named after him because he was a good writer and particularly because he had such skill with turns of phrase. Like "the pen is mightier than the sword" and "the almighty dollar", "It was a dark and stormy night" is highly evocative and almost poetic, to the point it has transcended attribution and simply become part of the English language. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of time" and "Call me Ishmael" are famous opening lines, but both are attached to particular novels and writers. "It was a dark and stormy night" is famously the opening line, separate and apart from any particular book. Thus, it is the sign of a bad novel if it starts with "It was dark and stormy night", because it shows a lack of creativity in the author (Unless that book was in fact written by Bulwer-Lytton. ... or I guess Madeleine L'Engle). The Bulwer-Lytton contest is really about finding a line that inspires even less confidence in the writer than a line unconsciously stolen from a novel written almost two hundred years ago. Also, Jess (and Colin), I invite you to actually sign up for the Tor.com community. I'd be interested to read any discussion you would want to start with the sci-fi, fantasy, and genre fiction community.
