DCU: What Do You Like About DC Universe? And What Would You Change?

Might cost a bit to get voice actors for each comic

If you’re looking to scratch that particular itch, I’d highly recommend the Kingdom Come audio drama from the early 2000’s. It’s got voice acting, sound effects and a decent musical score. You can find it on Youtube. By that same rationale, there were some audio adaptations of DC stories by Graphic Audio. I have the Infinite Crisis one that runs well over six hours, but like Kingdom Come it has voice actors, sound effects and a score. Chances are that might be on Youtube as well.

Hello my favorite internet @Moderators, I have one wish to make for DC Universe Infinite, in Get to know a character section, can you guys please make Get To Know Maxwell Lord. After seeing Wonder Woman '84 he’s beginning to be my new favorite villian and I would like to know more about him. Thankyou. :grinning:

Exactly!

I want to pretend I walk into a comic shop and read everything that was available in July of 1974. Then August.

It would be awesome.

I’m not sure how close that portrayal was to the comics

You advertise Batman the Animated Series, Young Justice, and Harley Quinn’s show on the app, but then you don’t have them. This is kind of disingenuous; you should either get them back or remove the images implying that they’re provided.

Hi @ageimers.28027, you’re absolutely right- where are you seeing these advertisements? We will communicate with the teams running those ads as be sure to have them removed.

Same here. I trying to catch up to now but I’m not sure where to start, what to read next and what issues tie In with big events, instead of having to look through comic series to see if they have a crossover issue.
I think I good idea is to separate comics by what Wednesday they came. If that’s too much or hard then at least sort them by month or even season or year. Right now when you sort by year you just get the whole comic series, not issues. Like action comics would be one of the first cuz it came out first but it’s also has the newest comics as well.

I never complained about anything in my 2 years using this app
BUT This disappoints me. The community was one of the best features of the app. It encouraged people to engage in convos more and share their love for a comic or character and give legit critics on things about comics and the apps.
I also feel it kept a lot of trolls and haters away. Plus I feel like others aren’t going to want to switch to another app and sign in again.
Is this forum for ALL or just people who are signed up threw the app? Not saying people should pay for this, but just be signed up with the app even if it’s a free account would weed out some of the trolls. Luckily we haven’t had any problems with them yet.
and how can we be sure DC or att/WB won’t shut this forum down like they did to the old DC forums from the 2000s?

Also are we going to get alerts on the app if people reply to us or even mention us, or do we have to come here for that?

Thanks for the question, @ericsjustmymiddlename. I don’t have the answer to that just yet, but as soon as we do we’ll make sure to let you know.

Chiming in!

While we don’t currently have mobile push notifications for our Community, you can visit the preference center of the Community forums and update your e-mail preferences to receive updates on any activity :slight_smile:

You can find your Preferences by clicking your profile icon, clicking the little person icon, then clicking “Preferences”. There, you will see an option for E-mail, like this:

Because I’m here all the time, I don’t need e-mail notifications. But this is a great way to get alerts :slight_smile:

In the meantime, we have explored how to create a more “social-media” alert system, so stay tuned as the story progresses!

Hi eric (if that is your real middle name), I’m looking at your other comments here, and I think I can help clarify some of your concerns.

With regards to grouping the comics by week, the challenge there lies in the way certain publications have been released. For some continuities, it’s important to read comics published years later, first! It’s a strange magic we weave.

But for that, we have our Collections, and our Community. If you’re looking for say, reading orders for the Superman Triangle Era, look no further than our Triangle Era Volume 1 collection to get you started. We have a whole “collection of collections” here for your timeline pleasure, and are constantly working on more.

We also have really helpful topics like this one, but if you are looking for a specific character or understanding don’t hesitate to reach out to our Community.

Which takes us to your follow-up comment- thank you so much for the kind words, and for recognizing the work we put into building a positive space.

To answer your question:

We are building towards a “single sign on” environment, where one account can access many points of DC fandom. In that way, you can sign up for either the DC Universe app or the Community and you will have created an account for the forums. The forums are, and have always been, free to everyone.

You can rest assured that we employ a fleet of professionally trained moderators to ensure that disruptive behavior is kept at bay. This is why you haven’t noticed any problems- our very own super-heroes!

In terms of how we can be sure DC or att/WB won’t shut down the forums, they had an opportunity this year to do so when they consolidated the company’s leadership structure and business priorities. Nothing in life is guaranteed, that’s what keeps it interesting and spicy. But at this time the company is invested in creating digital experiences that serve the fans at home, a priority that becomes increasingly important in 2020 and 2021.

Keep us posted on what continuities you’d like to see, and be sure to let us know if you have any more questions!

Hey Sean-Malloy! You can still have desktop notifications, which can be enabled or disabled from your Preferences menu, which can be accessed from your Community icon > little person icon > Preferences > Notifications. There, you’ll see this menu option:

If you ever said “block” when this pop-up occured:
