Jesse Eisenberg has been cast to join your ranks as those who have played Lex Luthor. Do you have any advice for the guy and what do you think of his casting?
Michael: First off, I think he's a really good actor. I don't think he needs any advice from me, he'll do his homework. Do it your way. I'm sure Zack [Snyder] has an idea. He cast you for reason. Jesse's a good actor. He'll do it his own way and that's the best way. If you can do it your way, if you succeed or fail, you succeed because you are being original. If you're trying to emulate someone, you'll always be compared. That's why I didn't want to be compared during Smallville. I didn't watch any of Gene Hackman as Lex. He'll be fantastic. Great actor, no problem with it.
Huntress turns to Batman and Superman when the extremely strong Power Girl begins to get out of control, but she's met with skepticism. Plus, even among Batman and Superman, the two heroes have been working together for some time yet still don't trust each other and see the other guy as potentially the most dangerous dude on the planet.
There is some humor in the mix, though, Pak says. "It's always fun, for example, when someone's actually able to surprise Batman. I'll say no more.
"Whenever you have a chance to push your main characters out of their comfort zone, you've got a good chance for a fun, involving story," the writer adds. "I also love the contrast between the men and the women, the older characters and the younger characters, and the Bat Family and the Super Family. Lots of great buttons to push and last nerves to get on."

I never really cared much for the Metal Men as characters before this issue. I always thought they were just those characters that you have in the background and use only when necessary, like in Alex Ross and Jim Kruegar's JUSTICE. However, this issue actually got me interested in the Metal Men to the point where I would love to read their adventures in their own series or even see a live action film.

Why are these Monitors doing this?
We still don't know. Only two issues are left in this story, and we still don't know. All we've been told is they decide when a universe is no longer useful, then do away with it. And I'm beginning to think that's all the explanation we're getting. Those last issues must have their action, after all. (NOTE: I'm not criticizing that fact, just that we haven't been given the information I want before that happens.)
Via which medium did you become a Superman fan?
It appears as though the Christopher Reeve films are still the most influential medium when it comes to the creation of Superman fans, with George Reeves coming in in second place.

Keith Christensen: I think what hardcore fans don't realize is that they're willing to suspend their disbelief to a much higher degree than the average moviegoer. In a comic book movie, visually speaking, everything has to be different from the source material, otherwise we'd be animating. A shot for shot, absolutely faithful live action version of the Super Friends might be very entertaining, but laughable. It's a different media, a different language, with it's own rules and limitations. The changes in costume appearance are the attempt to put the essence of that character within a live action framework. If you read a literal word for word translation from Japanese to English, you might get the gist, but it's not poetry. Just like verbal language, translating from one visual storytelling media to another requires an intimate knowledge of both. Admittedly, respectful fidelity is not always the case. Sometimes the source material is blatantly ignored.
In those cases, I'm just gonna do my job. I've got a family to feed.
Keith Christensen: To quote Picasso, "the next one". If I have to be proud of something, I'm proud of the fact that my work changes. Connecting with one piece is an experience best left to the viewer. I have favorite pieces from a variety of artists, but focusing too much on my own previous work has a stagnating effect. I do still kind of like that transforming Zod helmet though...
