Eight Decades of Superman

Superman first appeared in June of 1938, in Action Comics #1, then got the first self-titled superhero comic the following year. How has pop culture's iconic hero changed or stayed the same? And we'll recall that brief, dark time in the 90s when the world went without him (he got better).

Three Types of Magic in Fantasy

There are charms (magic anyone can use with the right chant); invocations (getting a demon or the like to do it for you); and innate magic (it’s part of the magician). Does all magic have the same limits or are the limits flexible? Which is the easiest to use in your story?
