Over the decades, a culture in comics had developed where, unless you want to tell a huge crossover story, you just kinda pretend that all those other heroes don't exist.  "Why the hell didn't Superman just spend 5 seconds taking care of this?" is a logical problem that you just sort of gloss over and pretend isn't there.  We need for the movie/TV universes to accept this culture as readily.

You CAN do that.And I tend to.  But I find that stories that address these issues in interesting ways can really be an example of restriction forcing innovation. Some handle it really well and make cool stories out of that in itself.
I find DC generally does it poorly with the whole "my city" schtick.

That was me. I was just going through it with my sister this morning and found a gap, too. I'll correct it this afternoon. You're welcome to scrape-and-reuse, of course.

Edit: the gap was in my reading at the time, not in the list.

Yeah, they are starting to become more suited to tv.
I like the idea of shared universe but real life cops and soldiers live in a shared universe too and they dont interact with each other on every case.

Real life cops and soldiers have different areas of focus.  When I was in the military, it was repeatedly stressed how illegal it was for military to collect intel on US civilians.

Whereas both Batman and Ironman assert their rights to collect massive amounts of intel on everybody on the planet. Wait, sorry, I'm thinking of Google and Microsoft. And also Batman and Ironman.

Our comic heroes are terrible people.

The way they are currently written, I agree.
Some of them are pretty good role models though.

For those of you who enjoy DCU animation, there is a new series of shorts called Vixen.  It is available by streaming through the CW Seed service.

I can't wait until I get the time to watch this.  I loved Alias, and this looks awesome.

Is there anyone who doesn't see the upcoming DC Universe attempt as anything but a disaster?

Let me start by establishing what I mean.

I thought "Man of Steel" was horrible, and was dumbstruck to see everyone around me enjoying it.  I felt like I was watching a different movie than everyone else.

I should preface this by saying: I liked "Superman Returns".  Oh, and that "All Star Superman" became my favorite Superman story ever upon it's release.

Well.  There it is.
