Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: DC’s Mightiest Edition


Yesterday’s inquiry regarding the Marvel Universe was limited to that world for two important reasons: Superman and Batman.  It seems to be very difficult for anyone to separate the cult of personality around the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel from their actual effectiveness as super-dupers, and their historical importance can overpower any team they’re on.  (See Brad Meltzer’s 2006 JLA revamp.)  Besides, under DC’s current editorial direction, it seems every book will eventually become a title featuring one or both of them anyway.  Even so, your humble MS-QOTD doesn’t like to play favorites, and there are any number of awesome, powerhouse teams to choose from in the 80 year history of the DCU, including Wolfman/Perez Teen Titans, the massive wartime chaos of the All-Star Squadron, and those kids from the future whose name escapes me.  As such, in the name of fairness and balancery, we beg today’s query…
