Published: March 6, 2021, 5:12 p.m.

Luke is interesting because some of his favorite characters are the villains. Also, whatever you read first when you're young, that's what you'll love for the rest of your life. We offer praise for The Juggernaut, and Luke says he's tired of Batman. Also: who is your favorite Flash? What's the deal with Moon Knight? Which reboot started with the Joker having his face peeled off? Can comic books be too dark? What happened in Flashpoint? Do you need to kill a character's parents to turn them into a hero? What is Sex Criminals about? What is Johnsian Literalism? Is it fun to see a hero who isn't a good person? Who is Damage Control and what is The Cage Factory? Who is Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes)? Why is it great that DC is making a Blue Beetle movie? Is it time for some superhero movies with low stakes? Which is better, Young Justice or the Justice League animated series?
