Legacy Other Some

We wanted to talk about death in the DC Universe, and how some people go to get a pass and come back, and some people didn't. That opened up a whole other topic about legacy. We wanted to talk about what was required to be a hero, what were the elements of true heroism?

Think I Think Wolverine

I think Batman has the Wolverine problem. I think he's overexposed.
